“Imitation is the surest form of flattery and failure. I am not interested with your talk about my ideas. I am more interested in your applying them to your life. If you do not, then you are essentially not in accord with your own mind.”
Miyamoto Musashi translated by Stephen F. Kaufman

Chopping Wood

n

2 weeks ago I had no experience chopping wood. I hacked away at a wooden pole, made very little progress and tired myself out. Today I managed to take apart a days worth of burning wood in a few minutes. Actually I just came in from doing that and then I watched this video:

  1. It is a smart talk – much knowledge collected,  assimilated and delivered with passion.
  2. It and it’s content matter is lacking any direction – it is coming from emptiness and going into a bigger emptiness.
  3. It is completely wrong.

I will keep chopping wood. After that I will get to work at pulling deep-rooted weeds that are covering the grounds of our new house.
