Nonaggression

Book coverNonaggression is a product of awakened realization. When you awake during the day from sleep,you just go about your everyday life, because awake and asleep are different. You don’t feel inhibited because you are not sleeping. Similarly, nonaggression doesn’t mean there is a regulation or cutting down of anything. It is an organic process rather than a discipline or moral binding. Nonaggression is seeing through the aggression and realizing there are more ways to be active and efficient than being aggressive; it is realizing a new angle of energy.
