I don't know much about internet radio but they have it on this rap 'station' at my work. It's awful. An auto-tune hellscape. And it's the niggeriest nigger shit I have ever had the misfortune of hearing. It's literally deep fried nigger dipped in nigger with a side order of jumbo niggers sprinkled with niggers. All served with extra niggers. 😫

Each day, we are presented with choices the minute we wake up until the minute we drift to sleep.

Those choices define the narrative arc of our day... from the seemingly-inconsequential, to the obviously-life-changing.

The fact is- every one of them is life-changing. Not in a glaringly obvious way, perhaps, for some of them, but coasting through a yellow light can be the difference between life and death.

It could mean getting somewhere else a minute early, totally altering our place in the time stream.

The point of this is not to evoke some Bill and Ted style most excellent "whoa" moment...but to simply make us think a little.

So often, we find ourselves on autopilot at various points of our day- letting a dozen of these little choices slip by without our even having much of a say so.

Make your own choices- be someone who happens to life, instead of someone life just happens to.


PHYSICAL

No matter what kind of physical practice we aspire to, there is really only one incredibly simple way to master it:

Repetition.

Repetition is what leads to skill, and skill to confidence.

To have faith in ourselves, we must give ourselves reason to have faith.


MENTAL

Above a door at St. Paul’s monastery on the famous Mt. Athos in Greece, there is a strange inscription:

"If you die before you die, you won’t die when you die."

The meaning is of course linked with the mysteries of Christ, but it reminded me of a line in Tsunemoto’s book of samurai virtues, Hagakure:

"Rehearse your death every morning and night. Only when you constantly live as though already a corpse will you be able to find freedom in the martial Way, and fulfill your duties without fault throughout your life."

In this quote, Tsunemoto refers to the idea of becoming so comfortable with death, that when faced with a situation in which the samurai must die, he will do so without hesitation-

A glorious or honorable death was a way to live forever- to die before you were dead, so when you died...you didn’t.


SPIRITUAL

To be heroic is to have fortitude- to show heart when others show fear.

It isn’t to be immune to fear...merely to not trade in it, nor spread it like a sickness.

To choose to share strength instead.


TEMPORAL

We should be constantly engaged in the pursuit of holding the reins of our own lives more each day.

This means being as self-reliant as possible when it comes to our livelihood.

Stay a rat or get out of the race- the choice is yours.
