You have to live it to know it, know it to own it, own it to pass it on.

You have to live it to know it, know it to own it, own it to pass it on.

I think this sums up my spiritual and mentoring philosophies quite nicely.

  1. Related to our interests. “It took me years to fully appreciate the value of the lessons I have learned from the Iron. I used to think that it was my adversary, that I was trying to lift that which does not want to be lifted. I was wrong. When the Iron doesn’t want to come off the mat, it’s the kindest thing it can do for you. If it flew up and went through the ceiling, it wouldn’t teach you anything. That’s the way the Iron talks to you. It tells you that the material you work with is that which you will come to resemble. That which you work against will always work against you…

    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs.

    Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.”

    —Henry Rollins, “Iron”
