Setting up the conditions to Uketamo

Mt. Chokai

You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. When we teach, we aren’t teaching. We’re setting up what we believe are the ultimate conditions for students to be able to learn. Whether they do learn or not is entirely up to them.

Uketamo is the same. Uketamo is about establishing the conditions needed to be able to take things as they come, Uketamo, and move on.

With Uketamo comes more uketamo. If you practice Uketamo with the small things, it helps you Uketamo when the big things happen, meaning you can more easily get on with your life.

I have personally found this to be the case. Whereas often things might unsettle me, I find that I am more easily able to accept them and move on than in the past. I put this down to being able to Uketamo the small things.

ENJOYED THIS? HAVE MORE.
