The World

What is our greatest challenge

And who is our worthy opponent

 

To overcome the world

For we are not of the world

We are of the spirit

 

 

St. John 16:33

“…but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

 

I John 4:4

“…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

The Mind

Art: Immaculate Conception by Giovanni Bapttista Tiepolo

When the spirit

Puts her foot

On the head

Of the serpent

Game over

 

The mind is

A worthy adversary

A worthy opponent

But no match

For the spirit

 

Spirit trumps mind

She created the mind

 

Overcome the mind

Do not see it

As an obstacle

But as a stepping stone
