555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 45.
Time Awake: 11:08 a.m.
For today’s entry, I am going to read a brief passage from the Hagakure, the essential book of the Samurai.
The Hagakure reminds: “Throughout your Life advance daily, becoming more skillful than yesterday, more skillful than today. This is never ending.”
This is something I am hoping to demonstrate over time in this “555 Days…” project and something each of us should aim for our own earthly lives.
With each day, we defeat stagnation, pushing forwards and not falling backwards. With each day in the earth realm, we become a little better version of ourselves. And keep doing so until the day we breathe our last breath.
