“10,000 changes, no surprises”

We talked about this in class last night.  The discussion focused on the feeling of being “centered” or in your own bubble and not allowing outside influences startle or change you.  Although not a fan of the “foo foo” mystical martial arts terms that folks throw around like State of Zero, or whatever, I do believe in the idea of being centered in yourself.  Only things that enter your orbit and require a response are the ones that warrant a response.  This is a very difficult state to enter, much less maintain in today’s modern society, however I think it is worthwhile to cultivate that mentality.  Observe, don’t react until it is time to react.
