    We're getting closer to a world wide wake up when we have the example of these great leaders who have effectively pushed that boulder up and over the mountain!

    compassion is the deepest peace

    •  The school of no sword :) (1+ / 0-)

      In ancient Japan, the master was asked about his swordsmanship school. He responded that he followed the school of "no sword."

      The warrior that faced him was confused, and angry. He proposed that he and the master should duel and that the master should demonstrate how it was possible to win with no sword. The master agreed, and suggested that they take a boat to an island in the center of the river where they could fight and disturb nobody.

      They took a boat to the island and the moment the prow of the boat touched the shore, the young warrior sprang ashore, gave a great cry and ripped his sword from its saya and turned to face the master.

      The master was sculling the boat away from the island.

      "You see?" he called to the young warrior. "No sword!"
