Hi Sean -
Yes, good points. Thanks for your sharing about the Afghans.
The inner struggle isn't separate from the outer struggle, because there is no inner separated from an outer.
It is the struggle of the identified vs. the identified, on the battlefield that has been identified.
Until none is identified.
Such that inner and outer aren't divided.
Such that there is nothing out there to identify as, and nothing in here to do any identifying.
