    Shobu no kata 2018

    Post by johan smits on Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:55 pm

    My very best wishes to all of you for the new year. May all your landings be happy ones!

    As I have stated on this subject in the previous years I am making a Zen excercise of this endevour.
    At some personal risk I should explain. There is a possibility that I will p.ss my Zen trainer off in a serious manner keeping bothering him on this subject.
    On the other hand, this work (his, not mine)  is a work of importance.

    My life would maybe be a bit easier if more people would participate in ringing this bell but than Zen and easy living is not very congruent it seems. Or maybe I have not progressed enough in my training. I will keep it up - my training and will patiently await if results will bloom. sunny

    Happy landings.

    Eternal optimism aside for a minute.

    I have read the sentence three times and I must say the phrasing does sound a bit ominous. Now it might be I have read too much Harry Poter lately or it might be me gypsy blood but I guess I will be carrying my short sword with me whenever I leave the house this year.
    One never knows.

    Happy landings.
