Illusion of Separation; How many wars have been started from a need for one side to be “right” and to make the other “wrong.”
Ancient cultures talk of our connection to each other, yet we treat each other with such little regard. They teach that when you go beneath the surface of “man” you find the true essence of who we are, intertwined at the deepest most fundamental way.
This is the only way to bring true happiness, look inside and find the answers. The problem is people do not want to look on the inside, because the inside is where they keep all of their pain, and fear. So they turn to others for answers, they assume that the one that is talking is right, this in itself is an illusion.
It is quite possible that the one that is not talking just teaching, is actually saying more than the one that is talking.
The body has 7 Chakra. Chakra are said to be “force centers” or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body and are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.
The “Light” chakra, located in the center of the forehead deals with insight, but is blocked by illusion.
This chakra helps you gain knowledge, but it is blocked by things that “you think” is right. This is an illusion. You think that your opinion is correct, when in truth, it is not. It is something that you came up with, formulated some reason for thinking that it is real, when in fact, it is not, it is false thought that you bring into yourself.
The greatest illusion in the martial arts, is the illusion of the five elements, and how they are separate. The things that you think are different, are actually one in the same.
If you open your mind, and think, you will see that all of the elements are connected. Even metal is simply earth, just refined.
Don’t be dis-connected from the things that gives you the most joy in your life, spend more time with the ones that give you the most joy. This is another way of opening the chakra and enjoying your life.
If you know that ‘this’ is going to place you in a bad mood, than don’t do “this”,.simply do and be around those that make you happy and a better person.
Not for sure if anyone of you understood the lesson today, but if at least one person out there, understands, than at least I touched the life of one.
Thanks for reading today’s lesson. Be safe my friends.
I hope that this helps you today as well as your training.
Take Care, Be Safe &
Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
