Unfortunately, most of the students in martial art are conformers. The student seldom learns to depend upon himself for expression. Instead, he faithfully or blindly follows an instructor, the authority figure, and his instructor's imposed
pattern. That way, the student feels he is no longer alone and finds security in mass imitation. However, what is nurtured is the dependent mind rather than independent inquiry, which is so essential to genuine understanding. So through daily conditioning a student will probably be skilled according to a pattern, however, he will not come to understand himself.
One of the things I keep learning is that the secret of being happy is doing things for other people.

The chief obstacle to the progress of the human race is the human race.

A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
But inaction itself is a kind of action, and it has consequences. Consistently and absolutely maintained, inaction would necessarily lead to swift ruin , it would be a form of suicide. A refusal to enter into the world is a refusal to meet the challenge of reality which darkly demands that I dare and find out what will happen. In my situation I bear responsibility for what occurs because I do not intervene , if I can do something and I don't do it, I am guilty of the consequences of my inaction.
What is defeat? Nothing but education; nothing but the first steps to something better.

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
For one human being to love another that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.

What we've got here is failure to communicate.
