I am not writing about ‘time’ by chance. I was inspired to write this article by a question: "When will I learn Bujinkan?‘. This is the question which someone gave me during the training. Unfortunately, we It is said, that the life has been being speeded up. Sometimes, I think it was speeded by us, by people themselves. We work. The responsibility is demanded from us. We have also obligation as private as working. Thanks to this, the time gathers unpleasant appearance - stress. Does it reduce our life, which we can live and not 'just live'?

Are often concentrating on thinks like 'How long does it take'. We do not see the reasons why we want to know something, but we are concentrating only on the results without understanding the progress. By this stance, we are trying to see ‘time’ as a physical quantity and we give it some shape. It is easy to understand why. At the end of every effort, we want to see, if possible, tangible results. So, we can give some shape to 'time' through our actions. On the opposite side, there are some disciplines, particularly science, where the main roles are tenth or hundredth of second. For example, the doctor has to know how long the brain can be without the oxygen.

Back to the question '"When will I learn Bujinkan?'. My answer was: 'I do not know'. Frankly speaking, I did not know the better answer. It forced me to thinking about my sense of time, which it is for all living being measured by the life. Mainly it is during the studying of the Bujinkan. Actually by this, I am trying to learn something during the time that is me who set the limits or borders. The results and all around are tally with this. For better or worse.

When I am remembering Soke's Hatsumi or older shihans' trainings, I always say, these communication and information, gained through the studying, are not easy to understand. Soke often reminded: 'Do not be in hurry!', 'what is important it will stay in you and after some time it will show itself and it will be the part of your taijutsu’. The haste is the shortest way to the forgetting why I have begun study. This Budo, which we can study, has been survived the centuries. It was in hands of the generations of masters, the heirs of the schools, until these days. It is the patrimony, the gift of the past. It is the patrimony of the warriors. It is the experience of war and it is also dearly paid by many lives.

The new adept often gives a sigh that this apprenticeship is lengthy and hard. It seems to him he does not understand, it does not effective, etc. It must be saying it is foolish to want during the one life to reach the knowledge, which it was formed in the past during many generations and it was also experienced by many wars and the times of peace. Everybody is looking for the way how to understand.

Today, I believe it is what is needed to improve in the ways how to do not feel the 'time'. Then, it is possible to train freely and without restrictions. It does not matter I have only a minute or many years. Actually, there are even some moments when I do not need to know what the time is.  Do not divide the time into the personal life and training. Mainly, it does not matter how much time we have for training, but the important is how do we train, how can we open our mind, how are we patient, how big is our enthusiasm. It is because we do not know how long we will alive. I mean, if we set what we want to reach in this field, it is really foolish. There is a time and place for everything. Whole life, we can strive for this attitude.
