Personal Honor

Postby -Metablade- » Tue Dec 06, 2005 3:20 pm

Personal Honor:

Dead concept in today's society?

What does honor mean to you?

Is it a code of conduct?
Is it a philosophy?
Is is patriotism?
Is it a moral/religious code?
A selfish and conceited notion?
Is it just silly?
Is it an antiquated idea which died out during the Dark ages or more recently the post Meiji era?
Is it all of these things?
~Or none of them?

What does it mean to you, personally, in this modern day?
And does your MA practice relate to it? (If at all) if so/not,
why?

Most of the old regulars who like the concept of honour are on the other Uechi site .

I`m sure Laird and Rick would discusss it with you , I`d be interested in joining in .

If mentioning the other sites inappropriate moderators please let me now and i`ll remove this and refrain form mentioning it .

As a synonm for virtue or upstanding behavior, Honor is a good thing As a synonym for reputation or image-consciousness it's not a useful mindset, in my personal opinion. If you search the archives on Van's forums, a couple threads about honor.

A good friend of mine once told me that anybody can ruin your reputation but only you can ruin your honor.
I was dreaming of the past...
