THINK LIGHTLY OF YOURSELF…

Good Morning

I came across this quote earlier this morning by Miyamoto Musashi, the greatest samurai who ever lived. I believe it fits our everyday life pretty well if you want to fully experience the joys of life and the world we live in. It always amazes me how ancient wisdom relates so well with modern times. As if time itself doesn’t really exist in the way that we perceive it. For one can learn so much more about today from history than today itself.

Experience life to the fullest by cherishing what the world has to offer us. It’s beauty, ugliness, pleasure, pain, adventure, boredom, love, hate, and so forth. When one becomes more concerned with paying more attention to everything around us, you will open up to many things you didn’t notice before. Realizing that life and the world we are in is a gift that should not be taken lightly. Appreciate all that is.

THE APPROACH TO COMBAT AND EVERYDAY LIFE…

samurai wisdom“The approach to combat and everyday life should be the same.”

Well what does that mean?

Should one go around killing and attacking people? Or carry you carry around weapons and be prepared to attack and defend at any given moment?

Well most likely not as we do life in one of the safer times in human history.

No, what this means is that you should approach life how an ancient warrior did.

They approached life with focus, discipline, strategy, and a purpose.

Everything that was meaningful was approached with focus on every moment and every task.

They were disciplined to get done what needed to be accomplished.

They use strategy to create the best outcomes that they wanted.

Every thought and action had a specific purpose.

All of this allowed the ancient warriors to live a fulfilled life through hard work but they also reaped the benefits of a fun and relaxed life when everything else was taken care of.
