In the Zen Buddhist tradition, Satori is an enlightenment of the spirit.
Enjoy the body flow; Gliding… floating… Effort free With minimum energy. Enjoy the now; Enjoy the inner you. The time is yours alone To revel in— As you breathe in The beauty that is found All around. Let your senses ring; Let your feelings sing; Peace is on the wing Feel the calm within; Body, mind, and spirit All in harmony; That’s what its all about. Let the body shout Its silent vitality; Let the mind run free; In Satori: Going beyond, Becoming heaven bound. Feel the dynamic meditation And rejoice in the play, The mystical dance of life, Where the journey Exceeds the destination, The training more than the podium, Or golden training is more Than mere medals.
Fear give me your fury; Let me taste your torment. Pain give me your worst; Let me feel your fire. Unleash these wild steeds Of Fear and Pain, So they may be trained and harnessed To obey my commands. Let me test my mettle In the flame of training, In the heat of battle, In the cauldron of competition, And the furnace of the fray, So I may forge my body, mind and spirit Like a sword in the glowing coals, So they may be harder than steel, Brilliant and fearsome. And ever ready for my friendly foes. This is my prayer oh Lord.
