Only Hubris claims to understand Mastery

What particularly impressed me about Nelson Mandela's life, was the way he harmonized whatever edge he was under or behind.

In jail he turned solitude into wit, cleverness, and gumption, by challenging the authority at every turn.

As a leader he harmonized an edge that included levels of violence unimaginable to most.

As a diplomat he presented to his detractors a presence of poise.

The modern Warrior, Mandela was transcendent.

A Master.

How did he do it?

My best guess......


This post was guided by the 92st stanza of the Art of Peace, a book written by Morihei Ueshiba

Armor Down is backing Legislation "H.R. 3516" AKA "The Veterans and Armed Forces’ Health Promotion Act of 2013".

This bill will

• Expand the scope of holistic care education and research for signature wounds such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

• Establish complementary and alternative medicine pilot programs for mental health and pain management treatment for veterans.

• Create a grant pilot program to upgrade Veteran Service Organization facilities, expanding the reach of wellness services directly into economically strained communities.

What we need right now people to show their support for this legislation by sign this petition.

Presently I'm promoting a new comedy on Fox, called Enlisted. It looks funny.


  1. I signed the petition! And I loved your Tame the Mind tutorial.

  2. I signed it, too.

    As for the Taming the Mind video: funny... I immediately thought of how good my daily dessert tastes on my tongue. :) I don't know if that's good or not.

    The trailer for the show is funny!

    1. ps. not your video as being funny, but my lust for cake and pie and how calm it makes me feel.

  3. Thanks for sharing this information. I signed the petition on Tim Ryan's website. Let's get this done.
