The Way of the Warrior

Flatheaded ducks

Many of the Martial Arts forms come from watching animals, Dr. Tae Yun Kim explains.  Whole systems were based on specific animals, the crane for example, or tigers.  But Dr. Kim also emphasizes that we can learn from all animals.  Look at these ducks for example. I thought immediately about a page in one of her books, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

“You will see that the Way of the Warrior is to realize who you are in Truth and to demonstrate it.  You will see that the work of the warrior is joyous, that your perseverance is rewarded with increasing faith in your Silent Master and in love for yourself and others, and that your victory is assured.  Because you already are one with your Silent Master.”

When I look at these animals, whether on the water or in the air, how they are true to themselves, and to what they are, and they demonstrate it.

So much to learn from them!

More about the great world of Hawks

So I maybe a bit pre-occupied with raptors.  But it isn’t like I go out and try to stalk them.  I just “see” them and they seem to “see” me.  Energy, Dr. Tae Yun Kim says, whatever happens in your life, it’s because of your energy, what you attract through your own energy at that time.

In Dr. Kim’s book, “The Silent Master” she talks about this on page 154:

“Those times that I have enjoyed the mountain and blue sky of the wilderness I have always had the same thought: There is no artist who can create this kind of beauty.  No photograph, no painting can match this  The more I stand there and just appreciate, the more I feel as though I am making my own music.  I am telling you to wake up and see how much there is to appreciate.  So many people are victims of negative thinking and dark emotions because they don’t realize how much there is to see and feel that can create natural, effortless, positive feelings.”

So let’s appreciate these beautiful beings, and enjoy their beauty whenever you can see them.  I like to think that somehow they are spiritual guides, just like the American Indians used to say, and like Dr. Kim is still saying.
