IT MAY SEEM DIFFICULT AT….

Good Morning

I found this quote earlier this morning as it is very true. But with time it becomes the exact opposite and then eventually it becomes normal.

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 SWORD HAS TO BE MORE THAN ……

1003892_10151689379146708_930807826_n

The Sword has to be more than a simple weapon; It has to be an answer to Life’s Questions…

Well that does that mean?

It is definitely open for various interpretations that’s for sure.

The Samurai believed that their sword had a soul and they would give them names.

Learning and using the Katana sword was an art all in itself.

As ancient warriors bound to serve their Masters and Emperor they would live and die by the sword.

Everything was based on self perfection and honouring thee family and country.

The sword was viewed as a way of life and not an instrument of death.

So one interpretation very well could be whether or not you live with a purpose? Do you live a life of honour? Do you have a belief in something so strong that you are willing to die for it? Are you working towards self perfection?

So many ways you can take this simple statement. Would like to hear what others think.
