Nine Positions

A Universe of learning in each position

Each of the Blind Men is trying to comprehend the nature of an elephant by feeling a different part.

They will argue later.

Our 1eye-Life-System is built around a mnemonic so that you can easily recall all the material as you progress. The mnemonic: I am the man in the Arena. The Martial Artist. Ronin. 1EYE. Laughing Pirate. Seeking Beauty. In a Strange World. And Grateful. For the Adventure.

I am the man in the Arena

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with dust and sweat and blood.

The Martial Artist

 For us Martial Artist means; Value, Purpose, and Discipline. Rocky must become the man to meet the challenge.

Ronin

Means you are a free agent in your mind, no matter what others might think. You might have employment, but you are a spy for yourself.

1EYE

The portion of the iceberg that is above water represents everything you know,  The portion that is below the waterline is the 4th Position, 

Laughing Pirate

Laughing Pirate invokes the spirit, of total uninhibited commitment. The will to go for it, and play a game with life.

Seeking Beauty

Once you develop the ability to create art, by the way you perceive, you are something like a man who can shit gold coins.

In A Strange Land

You have a map of “reality,” in your head that  will take you over cliffs and into dead ends. This map is called “culture,” 

And Grateful

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” – Epictetus

for the adventure

No matter what you know, your life will end,  As soon as you acknowledge this your life becomes  an adventure.

It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things. - Theodore Roosevelt
