“For the warrior, the path to enlightenment comes by openly and objectively studying all forms of martial arts, sticking to the true path of the warrior, allowing no dishonesty in your heart, sharpening and trusting your intuition, and diligently practicing and clinging to the truth. In time, once the clouds of confusion have cleared, you will come to true enlightenment.
Many think that they are on the true path of enlightenment some through religion, and some through education. But true enlightenment can be seen by what a person has done, not by what he says. Those who have missed the mark may chatter all day long about this and that, but they have never done anything. Anyone can make a good argument, by few can show good results.”
Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), founder of Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship. The Book of Five Rings Trans. D.E. Tarver
