Consciousness of Kung Fu
The Thorny Rose
Why should a peaceful nation have military forces and arms? Why should a polite police officer carry a pistol? Why should a friendly neighbor study the martial arts? And even more... Why should a priest learn Kung Fu?
THE THORN DEFENDS THE ROSE AND HARMS ONLY THOSE WHO WOULD STEAL THE BLOSSOM.
Pain Can Help
If a man wishes to experience the joys and depths of life, he must not isolate himself on an island, emotional or otherwise. Nevertheless, if he associates with people and has relationships with people, he eventually will encounter someone who causes him pain. But he should not retaliate. he should not feel hate or seek revenge. Instead, he should feel greatful for the experience because without bad people and bad relationships how can he appreciate fully the good ones in the future?
Seek In Others
TEN MILLION LIVING THINGS HAVE AS MANY DIFFERENT WORLDS. DO NOT SEE YOURSELF AS THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE. WIDE, GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL. RATHER, SEEK THE WISDOM, GOODNESS AND BEAUTY IN OTHERS THAT YOU MAY HONOR THEM EVERYWHERE.
