Sensei Post in A Zen Thing, Quotes

So long as a man can look into the eyes of his oppressor, he is free.
Jean-Paul Sartre

I hate to use the same source twice but this was to good and true to pass up, for it is true. Our spirit determines our freedom, for we can live in the freest land in the world and still not be free if we do not embody that freedom with our spirit. We will not go quietly into the night, we will not bend to some oppressive will, without first letting the source of that oppression know that they are killing or suppressing something far greater then they can ever aspire to be. In that moment, we are truly free and triumphant over our oppressors. So let us fight oppression in the world not with words but with our will, our spirit and when left with no other means to fight, our eyes.
