Dalai Lama

Karma means action and action motivated by compassion is good. To complain that what happens to you is just the result of your karma is lazy. Instead, confidently recalling the advice that, "You are your own master," you can change what happens by taking action.

Karate Nerd in China (Ep. 4) 🐲

As a practitioner of a martial art with White Crane origins, I've been enjoying this series. Watching this episode, I REALLY like the *hanging* wooden pole. I may have to convert mine.

[02/05/20]   It's such a strange phenomenon the sense of appreciation you develop with and for a training partner you can really get in there and test your limits with.

And I suppose thats a large part of it - working with someone you can trust to have control but still help you not only find your limits, but work at pushing through them and perhaps, even realizing what you thought was your limit, actually isn't. And in return doing the same for them.

Its a very strange thing to beat on someone and have them beat on you (in a controlled and structured manner) and walk away better, more appreciative friends because of it. 🥋

Dalai Lama

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives.

White Crane is our heritage. There are historical tidbits I've been picking up from this series which makes it more enjoyable than I had thought it would be.

Dalai Lama

When we are born, we have no idea of nationality or religious faith. We are just human beings who want to be happy. We are social creatures who need to live together as friends. An affectionate response brings a smile, which leads to trust that can grow into friendship and so bring us together. Genuine friends are those who continue to support you when things get difficult.

These are the mornings I have to shift focus to the win of getting done what I didn't want to do rather than on the actual doing.

Dalai Lama

Applying our human intelligence, we can discover how to achieve peace of mind. We can recognise that this or that negative emotion, such as anger and hatred, destroy our peace of mind. Cultivating a calmly abiding mind enables us to focus the mind where we will. Developing insight into reality, we can learn to transform the mind.
