利休道歌(Rikyu Doka) Vol.4

Confucius seemed to have asked the person anything when there was a thing did not know.
When somebody criticized Confucius, he insisted that it "was courtesy to ask what I did not know" back.
Result, he became a Confucian founder.


Originally, the person intending to learn something wants to have such a mental attitude.
If the person becomes the high position, his honor, his pride, his profit and his human relations becomes also bid firmly his mind. Then, it cannot be asked easily.
The person however becomes accustomed at once even if he becomes awful situation.
And, it is believed, "I know anything" as having hung to the self-hypnosis at the end.
That is the end of the martial artist by the martial arts.


I do not know faithfulness and the suspicion which is right.
I do not know integrity and the adaptability which is convenient.
Too much faithfulness make you foolish.
Too much suspicion doesn't make you advance.
Too much integrity is easy to break.
Too much adaptability is useless.


It may be that those harmony is a secret and the art of each person.
It is not good to forget shame, but the shame as ascetic practices become inconvenient had better last.
