Karmacology: Mindful Living, Sacred Practice

The Purpose of Training

Life itself is always a trial. In training, you must test and polish yourself in order to face the great challenges of life. Transcend the realm of life and death, and then you will be able to make your way calmly and safely through any crisis that confronts you.
-- Morihei Ueshiba

See Through Pretension

The world is his who can see through its pretension. What deafness, what stone-blind custom, what overgrown error you behold, is there only by sufference -- your sufference. See it to be a lie, and you have already dealt it its mortal blow.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
