Our life is relationship.
Our lives are a constant relationship with others – with human beings, with animals, with nature, with elements.
Every event with whom we connect, is influenced by our actions, by our thoughts.
Joy, fear, anger, peace – every state of consciousness we experience shapes our lives, producing its effects. Then we contact balance or disharmony, the immense suffering of the planet, with its wars, calamities, conflicts.
In relationships we can see what we are, through the Other we can be honest in seing what our lives are. We cannot pretend in front of the other. That’s why martial art works. You can’t be false, you can’t be untrue. Your friend is there, your fear is there, your sureness may be there.
You are there – entire, a whole part of All.
