I've just joined ATS after "lurking" for a while, so i'm looking forward to meeting many of you. As i said i've lurked for a bit so i am familiar
with some people here, others i'm not really.
I have quite a few interests, mainly Martial Arts and Ancient Civilizations. I have always loved martial arts, i believe they show us things we can do
with our bodies that many people thought or think are impossible. Traditional Martial Arts are my favourite, as they were originally used as a way to
reach "Enlightenment", but sadly that is mainly lost now, and they are typically used as a way to hurt someone; but as the times change so must
everything else adapt.
Ancient Civilizations explain alot about our human history and there are many things that we have not discovered or have lost to time. If we really
want to understand how we came to be then we must look to the past.
Oh, and don't get me started on organized religion. Well mainly the Abrahamic Religions. I really don't like them, so if you're a follower of one,
then you may find i might offend you one day, so i apologize in advance.
I believe i'm a fairly spiritual person, i enjoy meditation and getting to know myself. The meditation ties in alot with the martial arts really, as
they teach concentration and composure. I won't get started on what some may consider the "crazy spiritual" side of things, so if you want to know
more just ask.
I hope to enjoy me stay here at ATS, so thanks!
