The Outer and Inner Are Merged

"When you see a full moon, what happens to you?  Or when you listen to the birds and look at the green, trees, what happens to you?  When you go into a forest and look at the greenery, what happens to you?  Something green inside starts happening.  Green is the color of nature, green is the color of spontaneity, green is the color of life; something green starts happening in you.  The outer color reflects something inside, vibrates with something inside, creates something inside.  Looking at a green tree you become more alive - you become younger!" 

"The outer is not just the outer and the inner is not just the inner, they are joined together.  So beware what you look at, beware what you listen to, beware what you read, beware where you go - because all that creates you." - Osho

Mass media has filled up the entertainment industry with Combat Sport while miseducating the public into believing that is Martial Arts.  So a majority of the public have become Fighters or are ambitious to become Fighters.  Everywhere you look, you see the videos, everything you read they are speaking about Fighting, and everywhere you go people are talking about the Fights.  In order to remain a Real Martial Artist, you must stay away from all of this.  The videos you see should be videos produced by Real Martial Artists, like Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Tony Jaa & FMK.  The things that you read should be written by Martial Artists or Sages like Bruce Lee, FMK, Ueshiba, J.Krishtamurti, Buddha, Lao-tzu, Chaung-tzu, Osho.  The places you go should be promoting fitness, intelligence, and spiritual development, like the bookstore, library, FMK, park, forest preserve, lake.  Everything that you expose yourself to, makes up who you are.  Martial Artists need to place extra efforts into paying attention to what they watch, read, and places of where they visit in order to remain pure.

  1. Yep, I could not agree more. You have to be aware of what you do, listen to and where you are going. Otherwise you can lead yourself astray without even realizing it.
