Blessing or Curse?

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while the ordinary man takes everything as either a blessing or a curse.”
– Carlos Castaneda

How do you interpret events as they take place? As a blessing or curse, or as a challenge?

    Challenge as in like a game of chess or a puzzle.

    I don’t think you can break, it down into three catagories, there’s to much going on in life. some blessing some challenges, some lessons but nothing is a curse.


    • I’m breaking it down into two categories. 1. Take an event as a blessing or curse, positive or negative. Or 2. Take every thing that occurs as a challenge, without attaching a positive or negative label to it.

      Once we get away from labelling events as good or bad and just react to them all in the same way. This will be of great help. Thanx for you comment Matthew! 🙂
