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!
