Punches and kicks are tools to kill the ego.
The tools represent the force of intuitive or instinctive directness
which, unlike the intellect or the complicated ego, does not divide itself,
blocking it’s own freedom. The tools look onward
without looking back or to the side.
Truth has no parth. Truth is living and therefore changing.
It has no resting place, no form, no organized institution, no philosophy.
When you see that, you will understand that this living thing
is also what you are. You cannot express and be alive through static,
put-together form, through stylized movement.
Understanding requires not just a moment of perception,
but a continuous awareness, a state of inquiry without conclusion.
Because one does not want to be disturbed, to be made uncertain,
he establishes a pattern of conduct, of thought, a pattern of relationship to man.
He then becomes a slave to the pattern and takes it to be the real thing.
Happy New Year 2012!
