It is important to remember that Earth Changes have been taking place on this planet for millions of years.

However, it is rapidly becoming apparent that change is upon us.
I have always found this quote to be valuable for students as they begin their training in Zen Yoga, tai chi, qigong or the martial arts. They have come to a point in their life when they realize they want something beyond what they have at present, something deeper and more meaningful. They have taken that first step to make the necessary changes in their life to bring that into reality.
