There is not a person who cannot be broken down either by a strength outside them that is greater than themselves or a weakness which lurks inside of them which they cannot understand or master. It is imperative to build a strong foundation of understanding the Tao so that these forces can be defeated. Your spirit is stronger than the forces that seek to conquer you. It can defeat the power of another no matter how great that force seems to be. There is no defeat or failure nor a weakness within you that has been put there by another. Only those which you allow to settle in your own mind. Draw upon the strength of your spirit as you draw water from a well and be resilient.
