As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

Against The Grain
A little OM

Today a rebellious outlook on life can inspire you to explore ideas and beliefs that others deem subversive. Even as you contemplate how drastically your life would change if you were to integrate these bold concepts into your day-to-day experiences, you may feel a growing sense of pride. You are likely eager to resist the path of conformity, and you may find that you are no longer subject to the pressure others put upon you to play by the rules. Today can be the perfect day to devote yourself to a path of learning that includes both traditional philosophy and those outlandish notions you have previously been unwilling to entertain.

We discover a whole new world of avenues of belief and behavior that are open to us when we choose to explore the regions that lie outside the status quo. Our defiance may anger or irritate those who wish us to follow a more traditional path, but the lessons we learn while investigating alternative viewpoints will almost always outweigh the inherent potential for conflict. This rebellion need not be aggressive in nature, but it will almost always require us to challenge ourselves and our established beliefs. Going against the grain can be a painful process. When we accept this possibility and move forward anyway, we make certain that we will leave no reasonable opportunity unexplored over the course of our life’s journey. As you boldly buck the system today, you will find yourself immersed in a wide range of possibilities you might never have entertained.
