Or the guy sitting in a cafe years later listening to Bob Marley, Or the guy impersonating him and has no clue about his message? Or are you apart of the movement? That get the message?

Fact is you want more than you can eat. You want to be ‘bigger’, ‘better’ more successful than the next man. You want to be first, not last. You want to be revered, remembered, your name to remain here long after your death. At best you want 'to be the 'best' version of yourself' and so you're still competing with your self without wanting to know 'self'! Now ask yourself why? Don’t settle until you are sure.

Then ask again. Then one more time. 

Repeat this exercise: 3 repetitions in one set

***// The Core-Pirates (Movement 'Without' Culture)//***

Movement training and practice has been steadily growing, and becoming a niche trend amongst those who want to free themselves from dogmatic arts, and ‘purist’, ‘traditional’, systems and ‘styles’ of training. However this is no different than stripping rice from its bran, a bleaching of sugar, removing whatever ‘nutrition’ from the source there was to start with in order to try create a new product easier to digest, yet another quick fix, ‘to get there faster’ -  In short ‘movement culture’ is actually movement 'without' culture.

In the health and fitness Industry, 'health' and the term 'healthy' is usually is dominated and pre occupied by the aesthetic appearance and appeal of the physical body, which for sure has a place and could be seen as part of the parcel but is by far over rated. A we should all know by now being healthy has nothing to do with having a set of ripped abs.

Sema is a pilgrimage into the dervishes own being. It is a ritual, a moving prayer, it is where the dervish channels the grace of the universe and remains an empty a vessel, making a choice to stay and serve the world without ego and without agenda.
