Martial Morality Article

Postby spmguy » Sun Apr 18, 2010 12:17 pm

I wanna ask about this article :

As a person who practices chinese martial arts, I would like to learn more about their ethics and moral foundations.

Ive read the entire article and understood pretty much all of it, until I got to the part that discusses Morality Of Mind , and more Specifically, the part where he talks about Will.
My question is how exactly can the "power of will" be measured ?
How can I see the difference between a true goal and a vague desire ?
(and if you can , please send me other articles that discuss the ethics of the chinese martial arts)

Dr. Yang has not posted other articles on this subject.

As he says
It usually takes a while to demonstrate a strong will.

Kung Fu means "time/effort". Achieving a true goal means that you put in the required time and effort without fail. Do your best.
