“One of the greatest gifts of the martial arts is that they ultimately guide us to new levels of spirituality.”
— Joseph Cardillo
When we begin anything of value, we are focused on what is immediately in front of us, like a person on a rocky trail that needs to really pay attention to not stumble and hurt themselves. As they progress and climb higher the way becomes not necessarily easier but they have adjusted. And then they reach the summit and have the view, a whole new perspective and are fundamentally changed from the journey.
This is martial arts.
This is building a business.
This is becoming a musician or parent.
This is what life itself is, to unlock higher levels of awareness and power to aid others. Open up to the greatness you can become.
