Enlightenment and Martial Arts

“The only secret to real enlightenment is to keep your heart and spirit true, work hard, and be honest with yourself.  Truth is not true because you want it to be.  You cannot bend the truth and still reach enlightenment.  You must accept truth whether you like it or not, and adjust all of your views to fit accordingly.”

Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), founder of Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship.  The Book of Five Rings Trans. D.E. Tarver
