It's interesting that you should hone in on that one particular reference. I will try to give you some references, but in honesty, the entire book contains code for martial arts training in a very 'holistic' sense. Let's take this one: THE LEOPARD AND THE DEER The spots of the leopard are the sunlight in the glade; pursue thou the deer stealthily at thy pleasure. The dappling of the deer is the sunlight in the glade; concealed from the leopard do thou feed at thy pleasure. Resemble all that surroundeth thee; yet be Thyself—and take thy pleasure among the living. This is that which is written—Lurk!—in The Book of The Law. I have underlined the most obvious part in the quote above. This one is right out of the basic Eight Laws of the Fist: SAMPSON The Universe is in equilibrium; therefore He that is without it, though his force be but a feather, can overturn the Universe. Be not caught within that web, O child of Freedom! Be not entangled in the universal lie, O child of Truth! "A person's unbalance is the same as a weight." THE MOUNTAINEER Consciousness is a symptom of disease. All that moves well moves without will. All skillfulness, all strain, all intention is contrary to ease. Practise a thousand times, and it becomes difficult; a thousand thousand, and it becomes easy; a thousand thousand times a thousand thousand, and it is no longer Thou that doeth it, but It that doeth itself through thee. Not until then is that which is done well done. Thus spoke FRATER PERDURABO as he leapt from rock to rock of the moraine without ever casting his eyes upon the ground. The above quote speaks of the necessity of training and repetition, delves into the Japanese notion of 'mushin', and takes it even further. When you practice kihon and kata over and over and over again, you begin to do it without thinking. This brings you to a state of mushin, where your body reacts without conscious thought (another of the Eight Laws of the Fist). Taken to extremes, and you're not doing karate - karate is moving within you. Or at least that's how I am currently thinking of it. I'm a long way away from that kind of karate. But I think I can see it ahead on the path. Hopefully that helps. I really enjoy the entire book, such as it is. There's a lot of gibberish; in my opinion, it was placed there intentionally to distract those who are incapable of absorbing the simple truths expressed. Likewise the mystical or quasi-religious aspects. Those that see it as that miss the point, but that was by intent, I believe.
