I insist that I am right;
and so have been defeated from the outset.
I have been immobilized,
encased in the straight jacket of my knowledge
I cease to grow and change.
My study of Aikido has taught me
knowledge is fluid;
evolving with time and circumstance.
Knowledge is approximate;
removes me from the moment.

"Learn and forget."
