We cannot be victorious on our own. If we try to be victorious on our own, we are bound to be defeated, we are doomed. Failure is absolutely certain, inevitable. It is like a small wave fighting against the whole ocean: it belongs to the ocean – how can it fight? It is like the part fighting with the whole, the leaf fighting the tree to which it belongs. The leaf can be victorious only in the victory of the tree, not separately. The waves can be victorious only in the ocean; not againt it, not without it.
Man is victorious when he lives not according to his will, but according to will of existence.
