An excerpt from "Comfortable with Uncertainty" Chapter 88: Commitment
"...In order to go deeper, there has to be a wholehearted commitment. You begin the warrior's journey when you choose one path and stick to it. Then you let it put you through your changes. Without a commitment, the minute you really begin to hurt, you'll just leave or you'll look for something else.
The question always remains: To what are we really committed? Is it to playing it safe and manipulating our life and the rest of the world so that it wil give us security and confirmation? Or is our commitment to exploring deeper and deeper levels of letting go? Do we take refuge in small, self-satisfied actions, speech, and mind? Or do we take refuge in warriorship, in taking a leap, in going beyond our usual safety zones?"
