Re: What enlightened beings were known as GREAT martial artists

Tom,

I like them all as candidates. I find myself hesitating as this can be an argumentative bunch of folks at times. But, I sense, not so with you. So I offer you this meal to feast on:

A mouse and a frog meet every morning on the river bank.
They sit on the ground and talk.

Each morning, the second they see each other,
they open easily, telling stories and dreams and secrets,
empty of any fear or suspicious holding back.

To watch and listen to those two
is to understand how, as it's written,
sometimes when two beings come together,
Christ becomes visible.
