"most people just live their lives without thinking about it: just eating, working, sleeping. we're different because we train. we live our lives as Shugyo. that means every situation becomes training to us, an opportunity to forge ourselves. we take the attitude that anything which makes us uncomfortable isn't because of the environment, or because someone made us a victim. we understand that no matter how bad things are, we can still choose how we take it."
learning to embrace the Shugyo life. feeling this on all sides of life. the training. the choosing. the forging.
