“Masakatsu Agatsu” – True Victory is Victory Over the Self An old samurai maxim, masakatsu agatsu – true victory is victory over the self. Your old habits, routines, and ruts; the same food, the same conversations, the same work; laziness, indifference, reluctance – are all aspects of your old self. The old you who adheres to comfort and the mundane. Change involves effort, devotion, commitment, and sacrifice. The older version of yourself manifests itself in the things you eat, the people you spend time with, the way you work, the job you have. It comes in the form of your hobbies, where you spend your time, how you conduct yourself. They’re all only aspects of yourself. The old you. The one who doesn’t want to change. If you truly want change, growth, achievement, passion, happiness, victory – then you will have to struggle with your old self every day. Beat him into submission. Strangle the life out of him and leave him dead in your wake. But like a zombie, he will rise again and again, clawing at your feet and attempting to pull you down. And day after day, you will need to turn back and cut him down. True victory requires constant vigilance, to be on guard against the old routine. Avoiding the well trod paths of the way things used to be. A battle against comfort and convenience. Are you up to it? Can you avoid the illusion of conflict with other people? Can you commit to defeating yourself? ---- A final word from Dajian Hiu-neng (大鑒惠能), the Sixth and Last Patriarch of Chán Buddhism: The wind was flapping a temple flag, and two monks started an argument. One said the flag moved, the other said the wind moved; they argued back and forth but could not reach a conclusion. Coming upon them, Hui-neng, said, “It is not the wind that moves, it is not the flag that moves; it is your mind that moves.” photo by George A. Rauscher

Je höher ein Mensch auf der gesellschaftlichen Leiter steht, desto mehr Menschen sind ihm verbunden. Je mehr Macht dieser besitzt umso offensichtlicher ist die Vorherbestimmtheit und die Unvermeidbarkeit jeder seiner Handlungen... † Ludwig II (German: Ludwig Otto Friedrich Wilhelm; English: Louis Otto Frederick William; 25 August 1845 – †13 June 1886) was King of Bavaria from 1864 until his death in 1886.
