I don't remember who said it, it might have been from some form of pop culture, it might have been a character in a book. But it was a short monologue about what weakens a man. Paraphrasing as best as I can remember it:
"The things that make a man weak are contradictions. They slow you up and make you waste your energy. They make you run around in circles and second-guess yourself constantly. Nothing is as strong as a man with no contradictions. Pure love, pure hate, pure anything can free you up and make your focus as sharp as a blade."
I haven't become imbued with any super powers lately, but I do feel a bit like my internal Gordian knot has become frayed. I'm sure it's all a momentary internal calm. But I'm enjoying it while it lasts.
Time to go ride bikes.
