A distinction made in the last post is there’s a difference between knowledge based skill-set and self-awareness.
Enlightenment isn’t magic as far as I know, and you’re still going to have to trudge through all the belts and sparring partners like any other bipod. There are no short-cuts kiddo!
Conversely, a Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t mean you know jack about anything else knowledge wise, and can in fact be completely delusional about a number of things.
Yes, many of the situations we face on the mat can act as a metaphor and microcosm of life outside the academy, but so goes the task of mastering ANY rubber meets the road skill-set.
I guess the point is knowing what you’re after while in search of a Guru Dude. When younger and newer to Jiu-Jitsu I projected many things into it that were largely fantasy. Keep it simple.
