A dwarf or a child comes near the Pyramid of Cheops and says, “Either you give me some ice cream or I’ll knock down the Pyramid.” Then you say, “I’ll give you the ice-cream because I see you really need it, for if you really understood the meaning of this Pyramid, you wouldn’t trade it for ice-cream.”
When someone offends, first see what, and maybe you’ll give them the answer given to the child regarding the pyramid. Then you don’t take offense. You comprehend.
If anyone can mess with your honor, it means that your honor is not as strong as you think, because if you allow yourself to be shaken…!
The strong walk softly, nobly, persistently like a drop of water that pierces the hardest stone: calmly, serenely. One of the qualities of the really strong is to be wise. The strong are wise because among the things they have, one is that of being strong. Nobody can shake your Principle if it is unshakable to you.
(…) Within us we must have the Greatness. Within us we must have the Magnitude of the Greatness for the Ideal to be unshakable. That is exactly why it is ideal.
(…) Those who still consider the existence of opponents, it’s because within them they still have opponents, and it becomes very difficult to live with opponents.
The ideal is like a train that doesn’t stop a lot at the stations. All this will give you more conviction, faith, very great trust. Don’t stop at the stations. Don’t become attached to what others call opponents, because the Pyramid is so great that it’s impossible for it to have opponents!
(…) Follow what must Be, making an action of it, giving example of what you are, and so, you’ll be putting into action the force of meekness.
