There are techniques and scrolls and teachings all over the dojo. What does it matter if no one is practicing them honestly with sincerity and an open and deep heart/mind? What good are our lineages and grand hundreds of years of history if you are mired in malicious and unhealthy mindsets? Time is fleeting. Transcend the hatred and ignorance and practice deeply. Practice your practice. I want to strive to deepen myself and my students. I was involved in a small photo-shoot the other day. I thought I would share the image and ideas.
