Zen Story

A rich man, fond of felines, asked a famous zen ink painter to draw him a cat.

The master agreed and asked the man to come back in three months.

When the man returned, he was put off, again and again, until a year had passed.

Finally, at the man's request, the master drew out a brush, and , with grace & ease, in a single fluid motion, drew a picture of a cat - the most marvelous image the man had ever seen. He was astonished and then he grew angry. "That drawing took you only thirty seconds! Why did you make me wait a year?" he demanded.

Without a word, the master opened up a cabinet, and out fell thousands of drawings - of cats.

A Student & His Teacher

A student said to his master:

"You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"

The master replied:

"It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war."

Food For The Soul

"Training of the mind and body leads to awareness of the soul." - Bks Iyengar

Kung Fu & Tai Chi training is food for the soul since it makes us feel good internally and externally. It feeds our body and our mind, making us calmer and more passionate about our everyday life.

Interest & Commitment

"There's a difference between interest and commitment

When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient.

When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Persistence

"Persistence is the ability to maintain actions regardless of your feelings.

You press on even when you feel like quitting. When you work on any big goal your motivation will wax and wane like the waves hitting the shore. Sometimes you'll feel motivated, sometimes you won't, but it is not your motivation that creates results - it's your actions."

-Zig Ziglar
