In Spiritual Humility: an aiki reminder Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #259 New 03-11-2010 11:47 AM
True humility is to withhold your own power for the good of another.
- John Dickson

---

I could feel the anger welling up within me, rising like a warm tide flowing up to the tips of my ears. In one fluid movement, I was leaping over the front desk to tackle the first offender - landing a swift punch to his throat but in the process, knocking over the trays of papers and pens that Colleen had so neatly arranged. I would definitely have to tidy up afterward.

Out of the corner of my eye, I could see the second one behind me - the taller of the two - moving towards me and as he lunged forward, I sprang up and slipped his arms aside. In a split second I was behind him, simultaneously pushing one foot forward behind his knee and one hand upwards under his chin - sending him crashing down to his knees and back.

That wasn't so bad, I thought. They were only Math profs, after all. It wasn't surprising to make such short work of them. But the students stared at me in abject horror.

The whole scenario took less than one second to play itself out in my imagination as I turned back from the filing cabinet to my offenders and handed them their tests, choosing instead to retaliate from their sarcastic barbs with some quick verbal repartée of my own.

Oh well.
