Real Ninja Spirit Power?
In a personal conversation earlier this week, I asked the Dalai Lama about the public publishing of what for generations up to now were secret teachings for depth inner transformation. Books about once-secret Tibetan and Japanese tantric meditation inner work are available for sale all over the world; some of the books are good and authentic, some are accidentally off-base and wrong, and some seem deliberately designed to deceive and distract.
Blunt quick surprise reply from His Holiness was that we now need to publish this kind of information in its authentic form because there is so much bad stuff out there. Without access to the true, people will be tripped by the tricksters.
OK; king speaks, I listen.
In chapter 5 of my book Ninja Vol. 2; Warrior Ways of Enlightenment I wrote that I would never provide more than an overview of the ninja kuji-in work. In Chapter 5 of my 1983 Ninja Vol. 3; Warrior Path of Togakure I wrote a similar statement about ninja kuji-kiri. I felt strongly that way then.
But now I feel differently. I have decided to change my stance as to the public dissemination of information about ninja spirit-focussing intention energy work. I wrote my original teacher stance on not publicly teaching ninja power channeling back in 1981, way before the internet and self-published e-books and YouTube were even dreams in the public mind. It was way before an onslaught of embarrassing junk being purveyed on those future 21st century sources by “kuji masters” lacking legitimate authority and power. It is really awful what some people are hawking out there now.
OK, it’s 2009 not 1981, so here goes.
Read the Ninja Vol. 2 book.
Watch the kuji-in DVD.
Read the Ninja Vol 3 book.
Watch and study the ninja kuji-kiri DVD.
Read and watch again and again. Walk through your days looking for opportunities to “storehouse” amassed power from continuous awareness of your effect in the world (the books and DVDs tell you how) and watch out for temptations to let your power leak away.
I will post more suggestions on this blog as the year moves on. No, you cannot “master ninja kuji” from a blog – or a book or DVD for that matter. But you sure can get a head start on learning, and you sure can learn to tell the difference between instruction from a qualified teacher and something silly on YouTube.
