As Sveneric BOGSATER says in his book POINTS OF VIEW

Be sure to make it your destination, at it is his (Masaaki HATSUMI).

Make it your choice to not let them stay only mentioned.


First ;  forget your sadness, anger, grudges and hatred. Let them pass like Smoke Caught in a breeze. Do not indulge yourself in such feelings.

Second ; You should not deviate from the path of righteousness ; you should lead a life worthy of man.

Third ; Don’t be Possessed by greed,  luxury, or your ego. If you learn if you learn martial arts purely for self-interest and always by to depend on someone else just because it’s easier you will be controlled by this three desires – even if you already have reached a high level in the Martial Arts. These three desires will destroy not only Martial Arts but humanity itself.

Fourth ; You should accept sorrows, sadness, or disappointments as they are and consider them a chance for trial given by the almighty. It is the noblest spirit to take everything as a blessing given by Nature.

Fifth ;  have both your time and minds fully engaged in Budô, and have your mind deeply set on Bujutsu.
