The goal is to live an authentic life by going within to unlock paradise vs going outside. The UrbMonk mindset reminds us that we can be commited to balance without needing to remove ourselves from the world we live in. Whether you be secluded in the mountains or in a busy city you can still strive for your bigger purpose, whatever that may be. It is not always a fast or direct path, but it is a path that asks us to acknowledge set-backs and still put our best foot forward. It is one thing to go to paradise to find your peace, it is another thing to create paradise wherever you go.
The Hip Hop Martial Arts movement can be flashy, deadly, or both. But the goal with the UrbMonk mindset is to maintain balance. "When your tempers rise, lower your hands. When your hands rise, lower your temper." Through this militant mindset of balance and humility, we gain the conviction to push past our limits.
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
