As we are all aware, the FMK YouTube channel has been terminated. Here are my thoughts on the matter and what I'd like to say to Freddie...
I don't see this as being the end of FMK. Not by a long shot. I don't believe anything will ever stop Freddie from getting the truth out there. Freddie's expression of Martial Art is like water. Someone who is ignorant through a rock into Freddie's flowing stream of honest expression. Despite this, the water (Freddie) will flow around the rock with ease.
I pity the ignorant; for those who are ignorant (such as FMK haters) are unenlightened. Their ignorants is what causes their misguided behaviour. The FMK haters, being ignorant to universal truth, causes the torture to occur within their souls.
Freddie, the way that I see this is that nothing can ever be stopped, only changed. Of cause this may feel like a blow to you and FMK, and for that you have my sympathy. However, it is probably the start of a new beginning, a new chapter for FMK's expression. As you said in "Living the Way" regarding death: "There is no beginning and there is no end." This is what the ignorant fail to comprehend.
I think FMK will always flow like water, and not fight those with tortured souls, but try to help them indirectly. Freddie's Modern Kung Fu stands for the teachings of those such as Loa Tzu, Ueshiba and the Buddha. It stands for the teachings of those who understand the universe and wish to peacefully express universal truth. The truth of the universe cannot be stopped. It Just is what it is. FMK dose well expressing it, and thus FMK is indomitable, because our hearts are in the right place.
Oh, and in one of your recent videos Freddie, you were talking about not wanting friends because the more friends you have, the higher the chance of you offending someone who has become close. I understand where you're coming from. I sometimes feel that way about posting on this blog. I want you to know however, that on the rare occasion when ever I do not agree with what you are saying, I still respect the fact that you are expressing yourself honestly. Sometimes I may not agree with the way you are expressing yourself. I do however agree with where you are coming from and I see that that is the main thing. Don't let my personal dislike of explicit language stop you from swearing for example. I would honestly feel bad if you were limiting you expression just because you are trying not to offend me. If that were the case, than I would be robbing you of your freedom of honest expression. I believe that part of being a friend is having acceptance for each others differences. Whenever I have seen a philosia video clearly labelled "EXPLICIT", I choose not to watch it. As simple as that.
This is a time to stick together and have each others backs. We in the FMK community are experiencing a transitional phase. For many it may be difficult; understandably so. However I believe that FMK will emerge stronger than before. And I am excited to see where this takes us and how Freddie's Modern Kung Fu will evolve into the future.
Remember everyone, train hard, train soft, and train safe. Always continue to express a healthy balance.
