Re: Learning and Mastering

I think the stage of mastery comes when you actually 'mean' what you do and not just do it 'because'.

Sensei will say the stages are
- Knowing, Understanding, Mastery, Becoming.

I will hazard that there are not many who are the 3rd stage right now.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
