Miyamoto Musashi: A Perfect Cut Art

Musashi: A Perfect Cut

Musashi saw a flower in a girl’s hands. He instantly took out his sword and cut the end of the stem. Naturally, the girl was shocked. Musashi paid no attention to the girl, he simply stood admiring the newly cut stem.
It turned out that Musashi saw in the girl’s hands not just a flower. The cut surface revealed the work of a remarkable master of the sword: it was absolutely flawless. So flawless that Musashi could not contain the wave of admiration that overwhelmed him.
He had to get this priceless treasure immediately…
Absolutely charmed, Musashi feasted his eyes upon the master’s cut and grieved that he still had a long way to go to reach such perfection…

Unwavering spirit and a swift thrust are the concept of Bushi-Do.
The medieval Japanese traditionally worshipped and admired the instant thrust as the utmost achievement of spirit, the greatest art that is beyond good and evil.
A perfect thrust is Enlightenment, a category that transcends human apprehension…

I will not get lost...
The North Star is shining in the darkness...
The road to Valhalla, straight like a sword, is always in front of me!
