"One thing has always been true: That book ... or ... that person who can give me an idea or a new slant on an old idea is my friend." - Louis L'Amour


"Providing a first step on a path to self-reflection." - C. E. James

"Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider..." - Francis Bacon

"What is true today may be reevaluated as false not long after. Judgements are frequently based upon a set of "temporary" circumstances surrounding them. Conflicting ideologies can exist simultaneously. Antagonistic dualities are complementary aspects of a unified whole: are seen as mutually dependent mirror images of each other." - Nahum Stiskin

Kenpo Gokui

The lines of the ken-po goku-i are set from an atomistic aspect simply because it is the manner in which the brain learns. Its nature is completely holistic and like the I Ching must be in a form that promotes learning and understanding so a person can see, hear and grasp the nature of a holistic system. The gokui is a method to teach us how to be holistic. Its terseness is the best that can be done to convey its holistic meaning.


A person's heart is the same as Heaven and Earth while the blood circulating is similar to the Sun and Moon yet the manner of drinking and spitting is either soft or hard while a person's unbalance is the same as a weight and the body should be able to change direction at any time as the time to strike is when the opportunity presents itself and both the eyes must see all sides as the ears must listen in all directions while the mind must grasp all the tactual data not seen on all sides and not heard in any direction.

A person’s heart is the same as Heaven and Earth while circulatory system is similar to the cycles of the moon and sun yet the breathing methods are either hard or soft while one’s posture should allow one to advance, retreat, engage, and disengage as the body should be able to act in accordance with time and change so that one must enter a state of emptiness (mushin/zanshin) allowing the eyes must see all sides and the ears should listen in all directions while the mind must grasp all the tactual data not seen on all sides and not heard in any direction. - My rendition per translation from Andy Sloane Sensei.

A person blood is the sun and moon with the heart being heaven and earth. Is the blood that circulates within us effected by the cycles of the sun and moon upon the earth with greater influences from the Universe?

The heavens that contain the sun, moon, and earth simply by their presence effect one another so is it not to follow that humanity who resides on the earth would receive the effects of those bodies upon ours?

Do we influence the heavens through the training of our bodies which effect our surroundings which in turn have an effect on our environments which is contained on this earth and thus have a reverse influence on the sun, moon, and heavens?

As we travel through our lives we continually come into the sphere of influence of many things to include other humans so the aura of each entity when entering into the energy field of another has some effect and that effect is determined by the frequencies of our aura or energy fields. The energy field is also called "ki" or "chi".

To achieve harmony do we not first have to create balance within thus effecting energies outside of us bringing a balance with the ripples effecting each until we influence or are influenced by the entire Universe.

To forget our connectivity; to break that bond or connection; does this not create isolation where the energy of our spirits is no longer open to the vibrations and charges necessary for healthy and spiritually enriched life?

Open the mind; open the heart; open the body; open connection to humanity; open connectivity to earth, sun, moon, and the heavens thus the Universe in all its entirety, is this not the true goal of life?

Open your mind to the possibilities and the body will follow. Forge the spirit and the body will follow. The body is the conduit to the Universe and each step-up generates greater energy and the ability to connect is strengthened. The mind-spirit-body-humanity-earth-sun-moon-heavesn-universe is the string from us to the Tao.

Through proper training we reduce/eliminate the "resistance (resistors)" so the energy of the Universe can flow back and forth feeding the Tao.
