Fears and Frustrations by Jane Bright
We can also ask these questions of ourselves in situations outside the dojo. We can keep track of our life kamae. Did I have control of the situation? Did I stay in control of myself? Was I well prepared and ready for change? Was I trying to force my way through? Was I trying to make something happen when it didn’t want to happen? Just as we can examine and fix our martial technique, we can examine our lives in the same way. We don’t have to be afraid of frustration if we are willing to look for an answer. When we do find an answer, we are more powerful for it, both in and out of the dojo.
