At times we have to accept the tools we have been given. Even if they are dangerous tools that can have dangerous impacts, if wrongly utilised. Every tool comes with its inherent Power to create and destroy. A lumberjack cannot fear his hacksaw. An iron-smith cannot fear his hammer. A cook cannot choose to not use fire. We cannot fear our tools or be ashamed of them or feel guilty about them… and neither can we abandon our role, our job because we have issues with our tools.

One of the most important things is to be conscious that the tool is a tool, and not an extension of oneself. Just because we use it, we are not It. The tool’s nature does not determine ours, but our nature does determine “how” the tool gets used.

We also need to be aware that we are after all, mere instruments ourselves, being used by something far larger to create its own destiny.
