 ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS
Sir Isaac Newton once said: If I saw further than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.

The question is how to find giants? Real giants are visible only to those who have enough vision to discover them. The victorious and huge sumo you see on T. V. is surely impressive but not a real giant. The invisible man who coached him is.

 PARADOX OF THE MIND
The mind controls everything, but what controls the mind?
In martial art training  -for fighting, competition, or demonstration-  trainers often order to trainees to focus on the mind. “Keep your mind quiet and focused”. But the problem for trainees, and possibly for trainers as well, is how to know Where the mind is and on What to keep it focused.
Is the mind located somewhere inside the brain or is it something existing beyond our physical body? Mind, thought, spirit, are all independent or are they rather different aspects of one ultimate invisible reality?
It has been accepted that the mind controls our action and reaction to the outside world. If so, here is a paradox of the mind: If the mind controls and directs us in our actions, we are subject of the mind. Being subject of our mind we cannot order it to be focused on anything.
Because of this paradox, perhaps it would be better not to tell the trainees to follow their mind but teach them some techniques that could train them to straighten their mind, their thought, and their spirit as part of their routine daily training.

We are in the period of VIETNAMESE ‘TET Festivities’ celebrating the New Year  from 31 January to 06 February.
BEST WISHES TO ALL.


                                             
 THE MIND
What is the mind?
We cannot analyse our mind in physical term and we cannot examine it out of our physical body.
Mind is a mysterious thing that everyone can understand it without really knowing what it is.

Let’s take an experience:
-Could you tell me what it is like for you to be ‘you’ ?
