Two Paths- yes, but first choose one of the paths and follow it.

Apologize to every person you may have wronged in the past 7 years. You have to bow low to enter The Gate.

Let me know if you ever find someone who has used their skills for the right reasons.

What exactly do you mean by "for the wrong reasons", Two Paths? Do you mean that you ACTED wrong, or that you acted right for WRONG reeasons?

If you mean the second one, it's very common: many martial practitioners start feeling like heroes as soon as they have some skill (or before [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]) and will sometimes perform good feats - but will do so in order to feed their ego just as much (or more) as in order to help. I guess this wears out with time provided you want it to.

If you mean the first one, just follow Harlan's advice. Burn what you bowed to, and bow to what you burnt... It should be much easier to start anew thereafter.

I wish you courage and success.

Thank you all for your advice it really means a lot to me, I never really thought of it that way.

By the way Two Paths means the Eastern and Western arts, not good and bad.
