Conquer Yourself


“It is better to conquer yourself

than to win a thousand battles.

Then the victory is yours.

It cannot be taken from you,

not by angels or by demons,

heaven or hell.”


~ Buddha



Body, mind and soul, find the balance

between what comes and what goes,

between what we take and what we give

and we will have conquered ourselves.

The victor does not concede to any person,

place or thing, does not dance to their dictates,

and becomes one with the ebb and flow

that is the rhythm of the Uni-verse.

Recovery is to conquer yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a High Power.
