Meditation Point #66

Sensei Post in A Zen Thing, Quotes

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.
Tennessee Williams

I think this is my second favorite meditation point. While we train in the Martial Arts to harden our bodies and strengthen our minds we often miss the most important part of our Martial Arts training…Peace. This is a big word that I know many Martial Arts students don’t hear or see in action very often, that is sad. We practice the Martial Arts for peace, so we don’t have to fight. Peace so we have a calm heart and mind when faced with adversity. Peace that we may stand for justice in our won lives and the lives of others. Peace like the violets, calm and continual, eventually persevering over the rocks of our adversity. Peace and Life comes to the patient who stay the difficult path of the righteous life. Only a true Martial Artist can see this fact all other see a futile effort of a fragile violet against an impenetrable rock…how blind they are!
