RE: The Fight That Will Not Be Won

My condolences for the loss of your long time friend and Dojo supporter @wholeself-in.

I found the meaning in the passage your Sensei shared with you to be profoundly meaningful, and invoked a great deal of deep thinking after reading it. I've decided to make the passage my desktop background until it is ingrained into my long term memory.

Beautiful post with beautiful meaning. I hope things have been going well for you.

Thank you. I also find deep meaning in the passage. There is a longer version that I'm sure you will enjoy:
"One day some people came to the master and asked 'How can you be happy in a world of such impermanence, where you cannot protect your loved ones from harm, illness and death?' The master held up a glass and said 'Someone gave me this glass, and I really like this glass. It holds my water admirably and it glistens in the sunlight. I touch it and it rings! One day the wind may blow it off the shelf, or my elbow may knock it from the table. I know this glass is already broken, so I enjoy it incredibly.'"
