Matt Finch shares the life and teachings of Miyamoto Musashi, one of history’s most legendary warriors. Miyamoto Musashi is well known for his book The Book of Five Rings, in which he discusses the art of samurai swordsmanship.
But what many people don’t know is that Miyamoto Musashi also spent a great deal of time writing about life and living. While listening to this episode, you’ll learn about Miyamoto Musashi’s 21 life principles, which are known as Dokkōdō (“The Path Of Aloneness” or “The Way Of Aloneness”).
If you’re looking for advice on how to live a successful and fulfilling life, then you’ll want to check out this episode! The philosophy from The Dokkōdō reminds me a bit of a combination between Buddhism, Taoism, Stoicism, and Minimalism.
