[I:https://healthclub90.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/AlCase10.jpg]The following words have extreme importance for a True Martial Artist. “There are five trees in paradise and they do not change, summer nor winter, and their leaves don’t fall. Whoever knows these trees will not taste death.”
Now, you may be wondering what these words have to do with the martial arts, so let me explain. They were written by a fellow named Thomas some two thousand years ago. They stand for the five concentric circles of man’s experience of the universe, and they are as follows.
Physical has to do with the practice of taking control of the physical body. To be honest, in the martial arts this is not the mere fact of fighting, but controlling. While there is certainly an art to the fact of destruction, the true art is realized through learning control.
Emotional refers to one controlling his emotions. Practice real martial arts for any period of time and you learn to control your emotion. Emotions, according to the Neutronics definition, are ‘motion inside the head.’
Mental refers to the thinking process, and learning how to use the mind logically and rationally. This is where the science of Matrixing comes in, as it presents a procedure for analyzing and handling all potentials of motion, and that’s all there is in this universe. Sad to say, anybody who doesn’t understand matrixing is not on the way to mastering the ability to think.
Spiritual deals with a person understanding that they are a mote of awareness emitting light, and that creates the universe. This Spiritual Awakening must be experienced, not talked about. This is the thrust of Neutronics.
Awareness of All deals with knowing the entire universe by knowing all the viewpoints of all the individual ‘I ams’ that are individual man/woman. This is the God factor, or the ever present power that is the universe. With Matrixing this is not a riddle or enigma, but a logical step on the path begun when one first steps into a dojo.
