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.

THE SWORD HAS TO BE MORE THAN ……

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.
