The practice of surrender

Practice and being is not about control
It is about surrender
Surrender of the concept
That we control our world
And those around us

Practice and being is about katsu
It is as O’Sensei spike
About self victory
Surrendering the concepts
Of ever controlling the external
And becoming fully aware
And mindful
As the stoics spoke as well

The warriors battle is with the self
The world is your mat
Every moment is your mat
For your training and your practice
To control the self

True victory
On the mat that is the world
Is self victory
