one step past giving up
I get hit by these arrows, and lay down for a few minutes, but then realize something:
I DON'T DIE.
I have the ability to get up and keep moving. Okay, here comes another barrage of arrows. Ping, ping, ping. I go down.
THEN I GET BACK UP.
What happens if all my past conditioning throws everything at me, totally knocking me off my game and kicking my ass into the dirt until I just want to completely stop all forward movement - and then I muster the strength to take one small step past that point of giving up?
What happens is that I start to discover my own immortal nature, my own invincibility.
