 there is nothing in this world like the feeling and spirit of mastery

 when the intention and the action are so intimate that there is

 zero separation between will and existence

 artistry at its peak

 imagine a swordsman so practiced that his blade is not a tool

 it is one of his own limbs

 it responds no differently than his own hand

 one only needs the intention to grip, to grab, to caress

 one does not need to think and work through the awkwardness

 of using one's own hands

 his sword is no different

 make no mistake that while this mastery 

 that comes from intimacy of action

 can be illustrated martially

 it can just as easily be a wordsmith

 who can make his point with zero equivocation

 over which terms would most directly

 transmit not only the ideas in their mind

 but the flavor, voice, or flare, as well

 whichever is best

 really any passion taken in

 to the point where it has become

 as much the individual as is the face

 with which they were born
