the ancient way;
At first it will come like the bee, a simple life. Hunting [ carrot/stick ] , gathering [ goal/reward ], seeking [ challenge/skill ]. Life, that ever increasing complexity driven by the folding behavior of changes across density distributions. A great forge of life, take musu ai ki. Metabolic efficiency far beyond intellectual calculation.
Shugyo exhibits valences dependent on velocity and density of resource distributions behind a living activity. Some live in the forest, some at the gates of homes, others in large homes, some in mansions and palaces, some in heavens, some in hells. Shugyo comes together through marubashi. Phenomena assemble in homage to shugyo,
Austerity in resource expenditure, every moment cared to with the attention of master. In pouring tea, in placing a foot upon the earth. In opening the mouth to speak, in sitting on a chair. Thought, word, and deed. Mindfulness taken to the pinnacle of the mountain of space and time, that only moment, right here, right now; tada ima.
Take care with shugyo, lest one end up in the asura realms.
