The Comfort of the 36th Chamber of Shaolin

The Comfort of the 36th Chamber of Shaolin

From time to time we all seek to return to places that comfort us. The old saying of “You can never go home” is true in a physical sense, but I am a creature of memories. My “home” lies within my mind. Often this can be a random jumble so I use flavors, audio or visual aids to take me to a specific point or feeling in my life. Several times a year I yearn for the comfort of the 36th chamber of Shaolin. It takes me back to a time at my Grandparents’ home and getting a San Francisco channel in the late 70’s. The a few years later it was a solid connection between my training in real life to my nerdy obsessions.

It is a constant reminder that you can achieve things larger than your own desires if you just step out side of your own comfort zone. Isn’t that ironic? I find comfort in something that I feel is telling me to not be bogged down in comfort.
