View Full Version : Question on books

26th May 2001, 02:12
I do not know if this is the right place to ask this question, but here goes:
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on books that I should read relating to ch'i, meditation, healing arts, or any other martial related book. I enjoy reading a lot, and I especially enjoy books that in story form. I don't know about the rest of you but I remember and understand a lot more when information is in story form.

Thank you

Well, the Searching for the 10 bulls is a good start, at least, as a parable for martial arts training. And if you can't find a book/story, then I think that you better write one. Your central belief is strong. Start with a Journal, keep notes of your training, read, note taking and apply what you learn from other books. That will start you on solid foundation for YOUR STORY. Keep smiling.

Thanks, I'll have to look up that book, Searching for the 10 bulls. Do you know the author, by the way? I do keep a journal, but my rants and thoughts aren't very organized, it is fun though. I have read a few good books, like The Magus of Java, and The Way of THe Peaceful Warrior, and To Fall Seven to Rise Eight. I was just wondering if anyone else had suggestions for me.

Thank you,

It looks like you have a good start. And remember everything in reality is connected. If you look at knowledge as a web of interconnected nodes. One will lead to hundreds. So keep looking and asking yourself, "Well, I know this or that and now what's that related to." Then you'll be on your Way.
