The Way of the Warrior is to be found in Death.

When one has made a decision to kill a person,
even if it will be very difficult to succeed by advancing straight ahead,
it will not do to think about going at it in a long, round about way.
The Way of the Samurai is one of immediacy
and it is better to dash in headlong.

Ni Dan Tai Ho Shutokan No Haze Do

Our bodies are given life from the midst of nothingness
Existing where there is nothing
is the meaning of the phrase:
Form is emptiness.
That all things are provided for by nothingness
is the meaning of the phrase:
Emptiness is form
One should not think that these are two separate things.

Gillard really does seem sensitive about the Socialist Forum:

THE Labor Party has been caught posting an incomplete transcript of a recent Julia Gillard interview on her official website. It excised its references to her youthful involvement in the Socialist Forum.

The party also excluded from its official record criticism of the Prime Minister’s proposal for a citizens’ assembly to seek a consensus on climate change policy, along with questions over whether Labor had made deals with the Greens in return for electoral preferences.

The Australian has established that a transcript on Labor’s website purporting to reflect an interview the Prime Minister gave on Sydney’s 2GB on July 27 excludes several minutes of the interview, the equivalent of seven pages worth of transcript…

A Labor campaign spokesman said last night the omission—the exclusion of a single chunk of about a third of the interview—was the result of an oversight in the transcribing process.
