Nibbling On Asian History & Philosophy Series




In Daily Life

By: Koichi Tohei


“Do not give in to your surroundings. The difference between a wise man and a mediocre man is the difference between a man who uses an environment and one who lets his environment use him.”

(page 97)



Hermit Poet’s Comments: Who is in your orbit? I learned at a very young age to stay far away from toxic people. Users will eat up your time, emotions, and resources. Further, stay vigilant in your financial and business relationships/ interactions. The funny thing is that users are easy to spot because they take advantage on even the smallest of things. It is like they have a BLINKING RED LIGHT on their forehead.
