The Journey of a Martial Artist

The journey of a martial artist is a tough one, it is that of a warrior. One who is willing to set their mind and spirit on the ability to overcome any obstacle for the sake of moral justice and protection of those who need it most.

It is a journey that tests our character and willpower to the upmost but one that is worth every step of the way, for the courage and integrity it builds within are values that once there are always within you.

These values and many others are built along the journey. As a Martial Artist grows and are tested throughout the way, their belt begins as white and gradually become darker over time with all the effort put in; then further over many more years it returns to white again.

Why is this and what does it symbolise;

Throughout the journey of toil and effort we grow stronger and our belt is soiled, then further and further it begins to fade. We then reach a time where we no longer fight as our intuition is so developed we realise we need not fight, and as any great martial artist knows the highest skill is to not have to fight at all. To sense an opponent before he can even engage with you.

The journey is one that always stays with you and these are skills that will always remain a part of you.

Ultimately we return to our original purity; to the source ♡

Always Moving

Life is always moving,

Always moving on

Were here in this moment;

As the next one just comes

 

Each one fleeting,

Each one unknown

 

We may try hard to grasp it

Yet we cannot;

Just as this moment comes,

In the next it is gone

 

Life is only here;

There is nothing to hold on

 

Just like water;

It is always moving,

We are always moving,

Always moving on 💕

~ M. L Adams

Listen to your heart

When your heart tells you something’s wrong, listen

When you heart tells you, you understand, listen

When your heart tells you to move on, listen

For others may tell you all day long, whats right and wrong

But your heart only knows whats true for you;

In all that you are,

For all you have been through,

Listen to your heart;

Listen to its wisdom

~ M. L Adams

New Journey

To set out on a new journey

Open and free;

Simply to be

 

To set out on a new journey,

One with all that is,

The journey has been waiting,

Now you’re ready

 

To set out on a new journey,

That’s so perfect and pleasing

That all you can say,

With all that you see;

Is did I find it, or did it find me ♡

~M.L Adams

Honour Yourself

We can search the world for the honour we deserve

And we will never find it

Why,

Search here and there

Everywhere

And you will never find it,

Why,

In all the illusions 

In all the lies 

You will never find it 

Why;

Because it is never outside,

What is outside is only inside

Look inside;

Or get lost finding

Whatever  your journey,

Remember who you really are;

And you are half way there ❤

~M.L Adams

 

 

Journey to Gold

As you look back with a tear in your eye
To see how your journey unfolds,
As if the road ahead was somehow foretold
Yet all this you could never have known;
That step by step the journey you took, would always lead you to gold
And that gold is where you never thought to look,
As all along on this beautiful journey you had it with you;
Which only makes the gold all the more beautiful♡

~ M.L Adams

A Prayer for the All

 A prayer for the all

Moving through stages

To where all of life is always connected,

Seeing the all, in movement through stillness

Where the melody between all of the beats is created,

Where one to one is simply one

They all go together in interrelation,

All meeting here in this beautiful life

Springing from the ground;

Blooming in to appearance♡

~ M.L Adams

The Garden Path

garden-path

I am writing this as both an expression of being led in this way and a warning against it.

Always trust your own intuition above all else, there are unfortunately many out there who will lead you along a path to nowhere for their own benefit. With my experience and if they had been in integrity it would have sounded more like this;

‘I invite you to follow my way, which is in fact not a way but I will pretend it is a way, keep changing it and telling you that you’ve got it wrong until you figure out there isn’t one.

Please join me, it will be fun!’;)

Honesty and integrity are so important and can be harmful when not put in place. Please always above all be true to yourself and aware of others truths ♡
