Hanshi Platt - CMAC Sensei Wallace Platt, 10th Dan, Hanshi CMAC Founder and Head InstructorThe truth can never be televised only realized, is something that I tee everyone when I start to hear them forming beliefs and opinions from what they are fed on the television. Learning to develop  a discerning mind is a big part of Budo, because by nature, those that attack others are deceptive. They may show you the right hand like they are going to throw it but try to jab you with the left. The mind perceives and the body then has a feeling response. The key is to control the mechanism so an outside force does not create an inside fear from a lot of the mis-information shown these days. The bottom line right now is the fact that there is mega energy in all forms in our world from the fires in the west to the floods in the east, earthquakes, hurricanes, 9x solar CMEs, magnetic pole shift... this is all powerful stuff BUT IT IS NOT THE END as many are preaching. We are electric and when things get electric just be practical by grounding the self, keep things simple and take appropriate actions to complete the tasks at hand and lending a hand where able. What else can you really do? What matters is what gets done. Be the change you want to see in the world by first seeing it in the self and over time if enough people do this in reality with a positive, constructive and discerning mind set,  in time the truth of our existence will be understood.
