Where we are each time we step on and off the mat.
...and the beginning is?
and each time you 'step on and off the mat' (if you have arrived at the beginning) all conflicts will fall to the wayside.
OR....your training should eventually bring you to the place (point in time in _your_ life) that you are so attuned to your surroundings on and off the mat, that all conflicts that come your way will fall to the wayside because you know the conflicts before they arrive. Being one with the universe.
don't know how to explain it any better
