Egao Senryou (笑顔千両) Great Charm withe a Smile
——————–Some people are born the way that they want to be. Some are born with good physiques, exceptional athletic ability, speed and quickness. All of that is fine, but in the martial arts everything that you learn is an acquired skill and natural ability alone will not make you a martial artist.
The feeling for this comes from the heart. You have the dedication to get what you know you need. Only when this becomes part of you do you know that you have it, which is similar towards absorbing spirituality. You have succeeded at it, you may never fully understand all of it, but you keep at it.
As you progress you start to see the true nature of the way. You understand that in the beginner’s way there are many routes, but the master’s way there is only one way, one journey. Once you see this path, you will experience a life that you never had before.
I hope that you have all enjoyed today’s lesson.
I wish you all the best in what you do.
Take care, Be safe and
Good luck in your Journey of Budo.
