Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
I rail against those who live with a sense of entitlement. We are entitled to very little - if anything. Living in hope that the state or the government will look after us, is the way of the mindless lemming. We need to create our own lives, think for ourselves, come to our own conclusions visa the use of reason and evidence.
We each have the opportunity to carve our own niche in the world. 'Just keep plowing that filed and giving us your money and God will look after you' said the medieval priest - and the largest part of the population bought right into it. And now - it's the government - 'Just keep plowing that field, and give us your money, and we'll look after you' the state says - and people are buying right into it again.
Fat priests, fat politicians ... same old same old. We all have potential and opportunity; and when coupled with a will to do something, we can live extraordinary lives - better lives than have been ever possible in human history. We cannot afford to sit back with our hands out waiting to be given stuff we think we deserve. We need to move, think, create and strive ... that's how good living is done. - JBW
