The Curious Relationship Between Zen And The Martial Arts

” I do not know the way to defeat others,
but the way to defeat myself.”
By: Yagyu Munenori
Hermit Poet’s Comments: We can defeat ourselves because of anxiety or a wandering angry or passive mind. This is done alone, during work, business transactions, or interpersonal relationships, etc. The creative process can also be stymied with unproductive thoughts. Our mind is our best weapon, but it can many times hurt us the most.
STOP! Take a breather and calm down the mind if it is taking off on a wild goose chase. Meditation will cool down the burning coals.
