Do you have the heart?

Posted on

My teacher would often emphasize the importance of the correct heart. The correct heart is most important in life and for the warrior. Without it you would be misled into a pour life of ego and illusions and you would experience continuous frustration, desire, jealousy, greed, anger and the like.

My teacher would also often mention that it is not the technique that makes you win or survive it is the heart. I totally agree and would like to add that it is not techniques and abilities that change the world or people it is the heart. If you put your heart in to things s… happens. The heart which burns with love, compassion and honesty. Techniques do not touch us much but heart does.
