A challenge for now, can I be a warrior for compassion and kindness when I feel like the universe conspires to hold me down? I see those thoughts march by and chuckle to myself "Let's pick another story for these feelings."

Let's practice our practice no matter what thoughts and feelings arise from the fecundity of our humanness. Let's reap the rewards of our practice. It is here and now and true.

To claim one's warrior spirit; to be totally present to what is now, is the purpose of aikido training.

Techniques, weapons training, group exercises and meditations are all vehicles to summon and then challenge our warrior spirit.

Challenge yourself to be ever in the now. Watch your thoughts and feelings. Let them pass unfettered by anchoring stories. Let the distractions float into the ether to join the millions of other un-tethered nothings that matter not.


All that matters is what is, and now.

In General new year...new day...new class...new me? Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Thursday at 6:30 PM, January 2, 2014 we will have our first class of the new year. So what's new? Nothing and everything.

We have had about 2 weeks off. Just enough to make me antsy...I get a little weird when I don't train. Aikido is a mood stabilizer for me. I can feel like beetle poop when class starts and when it ends I am smiling and happy... relaxed as a new born.



Speaking of newborns, Princess Muffin is no longer that...she is something else. She is still the same yet totally different just as we will be on this new year...new day...new class...new me.
