One Hundred and Sixty-one

I insist that I am right;
and so have been defeated from the outset.
I have been immobilized,
encased in the straight jacket of my knowledge
I cease to grow and change.

My study of Aikido has taught me
knowledge is fluid;
evolving with time and circumstance.

Knowledge is approximate;
requiring recall
removes me from the moment.

O Sensei wrote
"Learn and forget."
