I’ve never been one for the learning environment that school systems provide. I’ve always been able to grasp ideas and teach myself through books and internet. I am my own favourite teacher. I stumble across things which I choose to teach myself all of the time.
I have always learned best from myself. The things I find interesting either relate to science or art. I like reading about things that may bore most people. To me, I never know where my interest will take me. I spent some time in a metal shop with the idea I was to learn welding. I never got taught anything aside from turning the welder on. Here’s the result of me wanting to learn something and having to take it upon myself to figure it out. Results below on that one.
I have since started reading about poetry and the different styles and all that. This morning I was reading about the art of haiku. Something I’ve always heard about but never really took the time to seek the knowledge. I did some light reading this morning and decided to take a crack at creating a few examples of what I have come to learn. They are simple and rudimentary. The basic scheme, if you will. Here are my attempts.
Standing in darkness
Thunders brightness lights my way
Devoid of fear now.”
“I can not go out
The beast inside is begging
Do I stay or go?”
“If the sun rises
It must, too, always go down
Out of sight, not gone.”
“As the waves roll in
They crash against the shore
And beach goers feet.”
These were quite fun. Got my brain working. I’d say they aren’t bad for my first actual attempt. But who really knows? Sometimes you have to figure out the inside of the box before you start trying to think outside it. Everyone’s got to start somewhere. And no better time than when you’re spending a lot of time inside. Nothing like some good doses of learning to make the time passed productive time. Yeehaw!
Let’s start with a few suggestions/steps:
Now, since many of you are at home now and so it’s your family, you might or might not have a place of your own to study or/and your family might be noisy so let’s cover all these possibilities.
(joking, it’s just a post about how to study in an area with noises)
Now, maybe these posts will help too since they are related more or less with discipline
In martial arts schools around the world, students are taught that the skills they learn on the mats transfer to life off the mats. One of these skills is discipline. That skill is the one needed most right now in our country, and in our world. The discipline to do what is needed to get our way of life back on track. Times like these I am grateful to my parents and to my Instructors over the years for teaching me this skill, for without it, these times would be much tougher than they already are. Times like these I am grateful to have had the opportunity to teach discipline to so many other people, making me truly feel like I may have helped some people struggling with this quarantine situation. And it reinforces to me the value and the necessity of the martial arts in peoples lives. Style is not as important as Study.

When the spirits are low, when the covid refuse to go, when online school becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. #justdoit #ily #love #discipline #dedicate #ironkid #youngtriathlete #beproud
What does the building of skill, and the prevention of decay, have in common? Both require time, practice, and discipline. Stay healthy my friends.

Root word for Disciple is Discipline.
Sacrifice is not the same as something being taken or otherwise rendered off limits from, or to you.
The spiritual discipline of Lenten sacrifice is not about mandatory compliance, but voluntary offering. To be fair, God doesn’t much mind whatever you do or don’t, but if you want to turn your mind toward God in this way, agency matters.
As with every spiritual discipline or practice (and life at large), we humans are quite clever at convincing ourselves of our ado, when in fact we’re up to and about much nothing.
When you have friends like @davedeheld , you don’t need accountability partners. He will keep you accountable of your actions.
Love the people who hold you accountable.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL! GET RIGHT WITH GOD. MANY BELIEVE THE CORONA VIRUS IS GOD PASSING JUDGEMENT!!!
