At some point, you are asked to lay down your sword, not for your enemies sake but for your own sake. After years of being in the battle, the constant warrior now is the time to take on the armor of love and peace in your life. No need to slay those who have slain themselves by their own actions. No need to show the glimmer of your sword for it is now outshined by the light of your soul. You no longer need to command power because you are one with all things and that is the most powerful example of mastery. It is time to lead and not follow, it is time to set the example and not mimic those before you. Master yourself and you have no enemies, for your cause is one of love and harmony.
