The Artistic Expression
The same is true in martial arts, believe it or not.
Which is somewhat strange, if you think about it. But at higher levels, martial arts is simply the expression of the self. If you like strength and power, that’s what you will express in your movements.
Expressing yourself has many paths. However, it has to be the true you, not enslaved to someone else’s will and not hiding from yourself using drugs or self-deception. Drugs are not a way for you to achieve “enlightenment” irregardless of what has been said in the past.
