COMPLETE TEXT: THE FIRE ELEMENT ©2020"The Fire Element"
Fighting is like fire –
It should not be trifled with.
Fire is more than spectacle and display,
distracting a warrior from the true way –
It is a force of complete devastation
with one objective:
Kill the enemy.
The way of fire is a way of devotion
which is demanding in all aspects.
Strict discipline and training of mind and body,
yields the realization of extraordinary ability.
A warrior seeking the power of fire,
must train in the furnace of consequence.
Once the ferocity of the flame is mastered,
there is no need for lesser techniques.
For the master of fire
the number of challengers is meaningless.
Quantity presents no obstacle for flame –
Nor for the fire warrior.
Free from the distraction of self
one becomes the vessel of miraculous power.
A warrior wielding the weapon of fire
is unconcerned with opponents or circumstance.
Regardless the number or skill of combatants
the ultimate goal remains unchanging...
The root of all strategy.
