THERE ARE ACCENTS AND ACCENTS
The last tour of the singer Joan Manuel Serrat is called Destroyed Anthology. I sat on the edge of that river, the flow of water was calm. Leaves floated pampered by the current. On the other shore, a rainbow of colors formed the various tones of the leaves of the trees and vegetation. Everything seemed messy and calm at the same time. A very peculiar feeling.
I asked myself: can the apparent disorder generate peace? Or is the obsessive desire for order the one that can break it?
The human being broke a long time ago. Withdrawing support from others may be your right. The fact is if you have asked for support and if you give it freely you can withdraw it whenever you want, it is your right and even has its logic. You will withdraw something that you have given but that you have previously requested.
The matter changes slightly in angle when you say to withdraw your support to someone who has never asked for it and you plan it first in your head and then execute it in most cases boasting that you can do it and have done it. Do not forget, before bragging about your own excuse, which you call “withdrawing my support” that perhaps nobody ever asked you to, and maybe whoever supported you is just the one you say you want to withdraw it. In other words, the situation is actually the reverse.
I always remember how some people said that they protected SENSEI as bodyguards. I always knew that it was SENSEI who protected them.
The subject of study in the German seminar was the kuzushi, the imbalance. In reality it is always a subject of study. SENSEI already told us some time ago to be able to do things for yourselves, do not rely too much on me; Maybe I can move slightly and lose the point of support.
Investigate and study, is what he was requesting. Investigate and study in various fields so that they learn to become unbalanced as well as to balance. My opinion is that it is essential for the Martial Artist of the Bujinkan to investigate, experiment and study widely and in the possible fields, each according to their own conditions. Knowing how to appreciate the forbidden space of others, one’s own space and space. In that space there must be a great gap for silence, because from it comes the sound of the heart beating itself that gives you the strength to be present even in the distance and return to the point where the human being had not broken, the origin. YOURSELF.
