Challenges in Virginia criminal defense- Image of two people fighting

Challenges in Virginia criminal court are to be exploited, disintegrated, redefined, or redirected, as the situation dictates In many ways, my Fairfax criminal defense lawyer blog is a tool for my self exploration and self development in successfully addressing these challenges.

Many of my blog entries are about dealing with such such challenges, specifically concerning persuasion and trial battle for successful Virginia criminal and DUI defense, including being fully prepared, being fearless, having no anger, not reacting, applying taijiquan to trial battle, vibrating highly, being at zero limits, being non-dualistic, seeing reality as no obstacle, deflating and neutralizing and disintegrating opposing forces, practicing in the moment, and directing matters to unfold from one powerful moment to the next. Persuasion starts as an inside job.

When I vibrate highly and am unflappable in addressing Virginia criminal court challenges, opponents will tire of flinging feces towards me, because it will just boomerang back into their mouths, and judges will think twice before wailing on me without cause, particularly when they see I am well prepared, credible, and calm in pointing out to them why they are mistaken or premature and improvident in their irritation. My positive energy will neutralize, deflate and exhaust their negative energy, and they may ultimately learn that the negative energy just wears them out, whereas the positive energy is self perpetuating.

Alan Watts has aptly observed that “all life is a magnificent illusion, a playing of energy, and … there is absolutely nothing, fundamentally, to be afraid of.” In that regard, I know that I am the only one who should set the agenda of my mind for addressing Virginia criminal court challenges, and not to let other people or other things schedule nor cause me upset.

The challenges of Virginia criminal court and the arena of life are to be my playground, and not places to fear, dread, nor tiptoe carefully around. As Ringu Tulku says: “Although we see that others are suffering greatly, we know that their suffering is almost needless. They are not doomed to be in pain, because their suffering just comes from a wrong way of seeing and reacting.” Ringu Tulku, Daring Steps Toward Fearlessness: The Three Vehicles, at p. 58 (Snow Lion Publications, 2005).

As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says: “A controlled mind will remain calm and happy no matter what the conditions.” How to reach that controlled mind that will remain calm and happy? For me, it starts with finding fulfillment from inside me, and not from the vagaries of the weather, time, and public opinion. To find fulfillment from inside in dealing with Virginia criminal court challenges, one must find peace. Meditation and mindfulness are an important part of that, whether the moving meditation of taijiquan or sitting meditation. So is following the path of zero. There is no out there for the mind. Everything unfolds from finding internal fulfillment.

Why do so many writers, artists, and musical composers revel and get so excellently absorbed in their creative works? One reason is they are able to create their own worlds. Each of us can create our own worlds from moment to moment, not by escaping reality, but by creating a new relationship with reality that keeps us on target with a harmonized and more fulfilled life. There is no out there for the mind. Everything starts from within for success in Virginia criminal defense and beyond.
