The weak cannot become strong
By struggling they only make themselves weaker
The strong are eternally strong
They recognise their weakness

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. How true! A short and simple reminder, wonderful.


  2. I wonder if we simply become one or the other by deciding to do so… Or does that deciding require strength first… In which case… ?
    (Can you tell I was raised Presbyterian?)


    • Oops. It seems I should have read this before replying to Bella’s comment. But then I should have been writing this to you instead to her. As it is, you’ll have to share. I’m sure she won’t mind. 🙂


  3. Lesleehare, I believe dear Ben when he says we may be in essence of both, and I believe we are, but that “suffering” either grows strength within you or a perpetual cycle of struggle for the weak minded…it’s all in the belief in ones self, in my opinion that contains the strength.


  4. and yes I do we believe we can be one or the other in some way or the other….just depends on the person.
