Buddha's Dream (2 of 9)



Recently stumbled upon Riley Lee's music. Have to say quite hooked.

First Aikido class of the year

Well today was the first Aikido class for me of the year. Finally found a class that I can get to, Saturday mornings at 8:30 in the morning. At least a dozen other brave souls ventured out in -20 celcius weather to get tossed around the tatamis.

Have to be honest , feeling a little sore post class, but overall had a lot of fun. We even got to practice with the bokken at the end of the class. A nice surprise I wasn't counting on.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

Verse 9, Tao Te Ching
