Beauty in imperfect impermanent and incomplete

Change is the invariant.
Some elements, objects or situations
change faster, some slower.
Some changes are surprising, but could have been predicted.
Others are utterly unexpected.
Some changes require response, some can be ignored.
And those that we ignored yesterday
might need our attention today.

Throughout the flux, we try to make sense of it all.
We continue striving to comprehend the world.
This learning process, too, is fluctuating.
Sometimes we understand immediately.
Some understanding requires time.
Some things we learn once and for all.
Some things we have learned need to be updated.
Some things need to be unlearned in order to learn anew.

All along, we attend to what we believe
will bring reliable information
and often ignore places and situations
where our expectation of precision is low.
Yet many times we are wrong,
because life is so messy, noisy and ambiguous.

But this is not a cause for worry.
We needn’t strive for perfection.
Rather we can be invigorated by our imperfection
and the incompleteness of our knowledge.
Through the feedback we receive
we are able to improve and develop.
Through thoughtfully structured practice,
and the search for what is missing,
we can refine the dynamic push and pull
between the strength of maintaining our integrity,
and the suppleness of finding alternative pathways.
We can enhance our abilities to relate with agility
to a constantly shifting world and its requirements,
constraints and opportunities.

Above all, we can find joy in honing
the endless act of modulation
in the parade of life’s impermanence.

Dimitris Psomas

Freestyle Wrestling Coach

He used to dream of becoming a freestyle wrestling champion and, when he achieved it, he felt something was missing or wasn’t fulfilling. He then realized, through wrestling, that there was more to achieve and enjoy than just being a competitive athlete focused on winning titles and trophies. He began to become more and more interested in the emerging ‘choreography’ of movements than in the tactical efficiency of grips and handles. Thus had begun the journey towards the flow of motion.
Understanding and anticipating the forces and energy of his partners and playing with them was the most satisfying feeling he ever had. And since then, he has embarked on something without knowing that, in fact, this is the purpose of martial arts —the sense of connection, communication, and creativity.
To consciously be part of a joint flow of motion.
