In General The Answer My Friend is Blowing in the Wind Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #135 New 06-28-2007 08:15 AM
I got asked by a senior yudansha after one class what my goals in aikido were...I found it hard to explain but gee, I never have goals...it's awfully hard to explain to such people but I basically happily drift through life paying as little attention to goals as possible since it seems to interfere with life and being happy in general.

And then the seed grows into a plant and into a tree, quietly but surely, and before you know it, there is a tree before you, growing silently in the wind.

The organic approach seems to work for me but clearly not for others and definitely not for my questioner. And reminded me of a skype conversation I had with a friend today: he said he was trying to keep busy and I said I was trying to keep free ...and we both laughed in recognition of the very different approach each of us had to life and what makes us happy .
