Mantra - Be Tame


... from the documentary film Won't You Be My Neighbor, at ~30 minutes, when Mister Rogers is talking as puppet "Daniel Striped Tiger":

Well, it took me so long to get tame. I try to understand how everybody else is working at it. Sometimes it isn't easy.

... and yes, it's such hard work to be tame in the positive sense — soft, gentle, kind, fearless — and it takes a lot of patience, self-love, and forgiveness ...

And it's so important to try!
