Dolphin Figurines evoke images of wild dolphins: How Do Dolphins Communicate?
Researchers are seeking to identify how dolphins communicate. Unfortunately it is like ancient history, once we can decipher the basic 'words' we think we have the message. However, ancient civilizations left us artifacts, buildings, religious and other rituals of life to enable us to deduce more meaning from what was written.
Dolphins by comparison live without possessions. All we have to study are their activities and sounds.
Much of the research that we know about dolphins is done on captive dolphins in small holding ponds. Noted researcher Liz Hawkins, recently on ABC TV Australia, has shown that dolphins modify their sound frequency in small ponds.
Low frequency sounds travel long distances underwater and can reflect off the sides of the tanks many times, actually causing hearing damage. Consequently, the dolphins 'change their tune' and do more high frequency sounds, out of our auditory range! She showed the same to be true in large bays where boating activities are high.
In comparison with this objective information, many of us have had subjective experiences of dolphins. These have so much in common, regardless of race, culture or physical capability. Dolphins communicate with us through feelings, intellect and acoustic imagery. The result is that people experience a lightness: perhaps joy; an openheartedness, perhaps love and a playfulness that is infectious.
All great leaders/ healers infect us with their qualities and we seek to be like them, even when they are not there. Aren't dolphins doing something similar when they infect us with openhearted love, joy and playfulness? We certainly remember our experience long after the event and seek to repeat it in other parts of our lives. Is this not a form of leadership?
Use the strength of your subjective experiences with dolphins, real or imagined. It is a powerful force for infectious healing. Place it within your dolphin figurine and adopt your affirmation with vigor and enjoy new energy and opportunity!

The River of Life
I've always loved the awesome majesty of mountains. They are, however, the byproduct of the rivers that formed them: flowing, adjusting, carving, crashing and gently nurturing the land and animals along the way. The river carves its way through, and the mountains answer as towers of strength. Like the river, our lives are forever moving and changing, shaping us as the water shapes the land it flows through.
Weapons of Mass Distraction
Anything that draws one away from the business of living and being worthy ? such as drugs, alcohol, distractions of all descriptions, and sleep when the intent is oblivion, not to mention the idea of killing oneself ? is a means of escaping, a little death, and death itself is the ultimate escape.

Ignorance and Fantasy
Are beliefs not often the children of ignorance and fantasy? Consider the heavenly view of the world that young souls entertain at the height of their innocence, when their youth has been surrounded by love and filled with happiness. Hear their laughter. Dreams expand in a vacuity of knowledge like a laughing gas and induce the blindest, the purest joy. Ignorance is bliss, as they say, because it spares us the mental restraints associated with knowledge (which reveals the limits of reality and hence the impossibility of our fantasies). It is the ultimate playground where the mind can build castles in the air, create a wonderland, and live delightedly in this kingdom of reverie. It paves the way for the reign of error, as it leaves us to believe whatever we like. Everything that is desirable is realizable, if not real, until we find evidence to the contrary. Santa Claus eventually dies of our old age ? when we are no longer so young, so green, that we are easily fooled by a tall story.

The Importance of Friendship
My students and clients have constantly heard me stress that our Martial Art is more than just a physical discipline; that it is a discipline that develops both the mind and body. This is so important that Soke Masaaki Hatsumi, the grand master of our lineages, has made it the primary thrust of just about every one of his books about Ninpo and Martial Arts in general.

In Corrogue I am amazed
I am just out of high school, and I have come to realize what I really want is completely out of my family's standards. I come from an Indian family, where the standards are extremely high. Like in most Indian families, I am expected to become a doctor or engineer. To please them, I followed a course in high school for science and mathematics.
