sensei turned, interrupted –

or a martial artist?”
valences of interference,
this being; a mandala.
in atemporal awareness,
we live, beyond even this.
in homage to sensei –
aikido has no style;
time no guaranteeing your skill.

I may not have made the best decisions, but I only have done so in an attempt to realize truth – a truth that neither politics, religion nor science has been able to provide. The truth I seek cannot be found in books, nor from others — mankind asserts that it understands only 3% of the energy and matter of space, how then can mankind find truth?
Tomorrow’s textbooks are not written and tomorrow’s textbooks are most likely made of an energy and matter that has not yet been discovered yet.

There is only one way [ to the truth ].
