Re: Reconciliation of Violent Action

IMHO, reconciliation if often the acceptance of the duality.
Its a peaceful art in a violent world.
The heart/mind can be peaceful while the body is active.
The art is peaceful, how one applies it can be peaceful, violent, or somewhere in between on the spectrum.

I once heard of a common nightmare where two wolves are fighting. When ask which one would win, an old man said which ever one you choose to feed.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
