Too much is just the right amount





(me, refering to chocolate cake at the time but I'm sure it is applicable to many situations. After all, if there was total balance, where would you get the dynamism of the yin and yang?)

Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realize the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again...

--Marcus Aurelius

"The more you know, the more you know you dont know." Bob Dobbs

"The universe is deathless, Is deathless because having no finite self, It stays infinite.
A sound man by not advancing himself stays the further ahead of himself, by not confining himself to himself, sustains himself outside himself:
By never being an end in himself he endlessly becomes himself." Lao Tzu

Interesting, comical, pondering...

"Anticipation of death is worse than death itself." One of Steven Seagal's movies (Hard to Kill)?

"I don't hate people... I just feel better when they're not around." Mickey Rourke in "Bar Fly"

"Would your training be different if there was no WHY?"
A question from a Nidan regarding the reason(s) "WHY" one trains in Aikido (meant to be thought over rather than answered.)

I was told of this old Japanese saying, that I have found very true, throughout my life. We all know of those people, who are hateful, nasty bullies, well this saying sums up to me, the best way of dealing with them
Sit on the riverbank quitely, eventually the bodies of your enemies will float by
