Thought For The Week

Thought for the Week (July 29th, 2002)

From Sensei Dale Adamson,San-dan,
Mohawk Valley Karate Club,

Onagishimasu Hanshi, Sensei and Deshi,
Life is short and it need not be complicated.

I often think of the following zen saying:

In dwelling close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple,
In conflict, be fair and generous,
in governing, don't try to control,
In work, do what you enjoy,
In family life, be completely present,

Arigato, Dale Adamson
