The Daily Jedi: Be Prepared

Posted 08-31-2018 at 02:30 AM by Johno1967



“Han Shot First” – The Jury

“Last Resort” is a word I often hear in martial arts and in everyday life. Simply put it is to use martial arts when unable to defuse or deescalate a situation or when evasion is no longer an option. If the situation deteriorates further you may need to then resort to whatever means are available to take an opponent out of a fight. It has become a fight for survival,...

The Daily Jedi: Indifference

“Calm, at peace, passive” – Yoda

I try hard to be indifferent. This might raise eyebrows. Tell anyone you are indifferent and they immediately make the assumption that you don’t care. Being indifferent does not mean you don’t care. It means that you can care about something without attaching emotion to it. It means being without passion for that thing and free of the suffering of grasping...

What a mess

Posted 08-07-2018 at 04:11 AM by KeyofC

A New Beginning

I kept taking it thinking it was what I should do...finally I thought..."THIS IS CRAZY"! January 28, I started over..kicked that drug and stopped drinking. I decided to really dig in and look at changing myself, change how I was treating myself, change how I thought about myself,...
