Mediums Speak of Warriors versus Sages
A warrior takes everyone as a potential adversary. No confrontation is ever a surprise. Protection, competition, honor, and righteousness are his principles. Yet no warrior can eliminate all vulnerable points. Only the way of the sage eliminates all weaknesses.
The sage is superior to the warrior, because the sage goes beyond concepts of protection, competition, honor, and righteousness, and has no fear of death. The sage knows that nothing dies, that life is mere illusion: Life is but one dream flowing into another.
