LIKE A SPARK FROM A STONE song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

adapted from the teachings of Miyashi Miyamoto

to know what is and not is
to know the many alone
to know the large from the small
to strike like a spark from a stone

the road goes on forever in time
the action is free from the mind
from one thing know ten thousand things
from one word a song you must sing

timing is good timing is key
there is no you there is no me
there is only the way to be free
and the Tao that leads out to the sea

the fast and the slow
the earth and the sound
the fire that springs up
out of the ground
the wind that must blow
so chill to the bone
the light that flies out
like a spark from a stone

one man can defeat an army of men
and do it again and again and again
if he hath the will and the reason within
there is no defeat, he only can win

to know what is and not is
to know the many alone
to know the large from the small
to strike like a spark from a stone

in void there is wisdom
no evil to exist
and death comes on sudden
unless you resist

to know what is and not is
to know the many alone
to know the large from the small
to strike like a spark from a stone
