The Musician’s Book of Five Rings
Samurai Strategies for Excellence of Performance
Introduction – Part 3
The Book of Water explains how all things flow with a natural rhythm in appropriate space and time. Water fills all shapes regardless of other impositions as to its functionality. All things are eventually worn away by water—all things—and so you should think in terms of being able to wear away any impediments to your life and artistic development by not considering any form of impossibility or submitting to unreasonable fears that you may or may not self-impose. With correct determination, you will conquer any difficulty that presents itself, regardless of the form it represents. It is your consciousness that determines how you will ascend to mastery, and no amount of coercion from any source, positive or negative, will empower you to do this without your ardent desire to do it for yourself and for the art you practice. Reality is mostly intuitive, and the more you apply yourself to the acceptance of your own greatness, your greatness will empower itself in you, as you, and through you in all aspects of your life experiences.
