Studying Patience

"The strong manly ones in life are those who understand the meaning of the word patience. Patience means restraining one's inclinations. There are seven emotions: joy, anger, anxiety, love, grief, fear, and hate, and if a man does not give way to these he can be called patient. I am not as strong as I might be, but I have long known and practiced patience. And if my descendants wish to be as I am, they must study patience." -Tokugawa Ieyasu

In the late 1400's, the ruling Ashikaga Shogunate of Japan became weak and lost its hold over the country. A many-sided civil war broke out, thus beginning the "Sengoku Period" - known as one of the most bloody and lawless periods in Japanese history, but also an era of some incredibly most heroic leadership.

Eventually, "Three Great Unifiers" came to power and ended the conflict through victory. These three were Oda Nobugana, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.

In the end, Tokugawa Ieyasu won, and his family ruled Japan for the next 250 years. However, he's probably the least popular of the three great unifiers in Japan.

Nobunaga is popular for having an incredibly fierce, martial, masculine spirit. At one point, the warrior-monks of the Honganji allied themselves against Nobunaga and harried, harassed, and ambushed his armies. The Honganji provided supplies, spies, and information for Nobunaga's enemies and sometimes faced them in direct combat.

The Eternal Conflict !

On hazemmohamed

First of all, this blog is about our lives, the problems we all face that limit us and decrease our performance bringing stress and anxiety along the way, It's about all those promises that never seemed to work, about our bad habits and the good ones. And what we can do to improve yourself and lead a happier, more successful, more enjoyable life and most importantly, the life that each of us wants_each in his unique way. A lot of us feel that our surroundings _and desires_ manipulate us and act mostly against our own benefits but we could never have power over them. You weren't meant to be the slave of those things, you were rather meant to be the master , the one who controls this everlasting conflict between good and bad. The conflict where the bad forces always seem to be stronger. The aim of this project is to help me and you reach our limits and go beyond them, to be the best version of ourselves we can possibly can. We all experience those problems, even the best ones always feel they could be doing better.

To eliminate the major problems that restrict our progress by investigating them and understanding their elements, not just laying the “magic 5 techniques” without really understanding where they've come from.

First , I would like to introduce my philosophy on why we should do our best.

Watching life around us, we find that that's how everything in the universe works. God created all his creatures acting by instinct, and with their instinctive behaviour they always reach their limits doing as much as they can. How much tall will a tree grow? As much as it possibly can. How much do ants do to survive? Everything they can possibly do. If you block an ant's path to a certain destination, it'll go searching for another until it dies. If you block one side of a tree it'll grow all its branches on the other side. Human body grows to the maximum it can reach. All creatures were programmed to behave and think this way, only human beings were given the privilege of choice, the freedom.They are the only creatures that can freely choose to settle for less. But you can’t have freedom alone, freedom is always in proportion with responsibility, otherwise there are no limits to that freedom. And we've got a big one in our hands, humans are in charge of this Earth, they are the only creatures that can make it a better or worse place, each and everyone of us contributes to either. And I guess then, all humanity should be great people simply doing what they’ve got to do, but why isn't it like that? Because it doesn’t work that way; the presence of of responsibility requires obstacles and hurdles. Finishing a task isn't an accomplishment unless there were obstacles that you overcame. Those obstacles create the accomplishment and the superiority of the one who overcomes them.

When we understand this equation we learn to watch out for the obstacles, to study them to be able to overcome them. We learn to appreciate the freedom we have by committing to our responsibilities, and making the world better through making ourselves better. The world needs a BETTER YOU.
