Kill Off The Goddamned Coward Within.
Hello fellow warrior,
What with all that is going on this country right now, we could sure use George. Maybe two Georges. George Washington and George Patton. The courage. The character. Could go a long way in making things move along more nicely, constructively and prosperously than they are right now. Of course their strategies on how to get things done would not sit very well with the fence-sitting eunuchs of today, and there would probably be a lot of collateral damage to explain. Still, it’s an uplifting daydream to have on a hot summer afternoon.
I haven’t publicly discharged my opinion of the political state of things for quite some time. And I’m not going to now. Not here in this Warrior Wisdom piece because that is not what these are all about. Maybe later on Warrior’s Machete.
You have to admit, though, if I was in the mood to discuss what this country is going through right now, Patton’s words would make for a super premise to blast-off from.
I use Patton’s quote today because I like it. No, I LOVE IT!! It FIRES me up!! Nothing like a good ole’ GodDamnit or Fuck You to get a man motivated to get up off his ass and take action on something. And motivating and inspiring ourselves — kicking our OWN ass is what we warriors are all about, here.
Patton knew how to do it. He was a master of it — and he believed it was his Destiny! You have to love that!! That’s why his legacy is so admired and inspiring today. He kicked ass and never cared to take any names. It didn’t matter who the enemy was. To him, they all had the same name. Bastards. LOVE that!!
The GodDamned cowards you need to KILL are the pests inside your mind talking you out of getting out there and conquering the life that is yours for the taking. To make it happen you have to kill the GodDamned bastards off. Swat them down. Smash them into squishy unrecognizable goo. Visualize blowing them to smithereens in such a violent manner that you can feel the disintegrated ooze running down the inner walls of your skull. Render them unidentifiable!
Look, in many ways you’ve been lied to when it comes to how you get your life act together. Most of the crap out there you can turn to for guidance is touchy-feel-ly, telling you to look in your heart and find peacefulness, have patience and calm understanding, and learn to unconditionally love everyone else in the world. You know, hugs and kisses — the Chicken Soup stuff. Now, don’t get me wrong. I, too, can find some inspiring stories in that stuff, and there is nothing wrong with inspiration touching you on an emotional level that tugs at your heartstrings.
But the truth is, life — your everyday life — isn’t like that. Real life is a fucking meat grinder, not a warm, cuddly and cozy bowl of Chicken Soup. Peace and love and serenity and incense burning and sitting in the shape of a pretzel and humming Kumbaya isn’t going to lead you to your promise land — your Destiny. To get there — you have to WAR.
Take it from Patton, a Warrior General whom God saluted when he showed up at the Pearly Gates.
1. War is Hell. Nothing is pretty about it. Nothing smells good about it. Nothing feels good about it. It is ugly. It stinks. It is pain. This includes the war you must engage in your life to rid yourself of your doubts and weaknesses so that you can fulfill your Destiny.
2. There is no peace without there, first, being war. Between enemies, one good and the other evil, there first has to be war for there to be peace. Good must slaughter evil. Good must destroy evil’s will to fight. Good must bring evil not just to its knees — but to its death. You cannot find or make compromise with the doubts and weaknesses (evils) within you. There is no way of peacefully disarming them. You kill them violently and viciously.
To get in the mood for becoming your OWN One Warrior Nation, eat your meat raw and bloody, and keep your motivation aggressive and brutish.
