Wolverine is one of the most famous Marvel character that ever existed. In fact, it is the favorite one among marvel super heroes. Having a strong personality, Wolverine definitely captures the sentiment of readers, both young and old marvel fanatics. With the character of a bad boy image, it is the most aggressive and hot-tempered mutant in marvel comics. Wolverine really made his mark in the comics world.
After X-men 1, 2 and 3 the movies, a latest one is coming this May 1, 2009 entitled "X-Men Origins: Wolverine the movie". Marvel fanatics are certainly excited to watch this upcoming movie, where the story is centered on the character of James Howlett, who is more commonly known as Logan or Wolverine. The story of wolverine's life in this movie will show how Sabretooth became his mortal enemy, and how he had the "adamantium" metal implanted to his bone. Since the presence of adamantium negates the natural structural limits of his bones, he can lift or move heavily weight objects that would otherwise damage a human skeleton.

This is absolutely a must watch movie and even more since there are new mutant appearances that can be anticipated to showcase itself, like Gambit. I myself is extremely excited to see this movie. I cant wait to see it my self.

Ki is a simple two-letter word that has a deep meaning that will widen or expand your understanding about the way of life. Ki usually means “flow of energy” and often means “energy” in Western philosophy. This called “energy flow” has lots of alternate names in Asian countries like in Chinese it is called qi, in Japanese it is ki, in Vietnamese khi, and in Korean gi.

Ki exists in many beliefs especially in Asian countries. It plays a big role in lots of martial arts which exist in Asia, especially in Japan which is the birth place of the martial art of Aikido which was founded by Morihei Ueshiba. Aikido focuses on unifying with life energy or what they called “the Way of harmonious spirit”. Aikido is performed by blending with the motion of the attacker and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on.

In Chinese traditional art of geomancy, the word feng shui is based to calculate the balance of qi, the connection between elements, and many others factors. The Chinese believe that knowing the energy flow will affect their health, business, luck and other aspects of life.

In my understanding everyone of us has our own ki. Whether it is positive or negative it is up to us to develop, understand, and learn how to use it wisely.

Enlightenment is a very intriguing word. It usually means wisdom or deep understanding of perception. However, there are two relative concepts with it which can be quite distinct: religious or spiritual enlightenment and secular or intellectual enlightenment. This causes confusion, since those who claim for intellectual enlightenment often reject spiritual concepts as well. In my understanding, enlightenment is an awareness or satisfaction with your self for having the highest understanding or knowledge that a human being can achieve. It is controlling your sense of feeling that is manipulated by the mind. I believe only few people achieve this particular kind of enlightenment state. You need high self discipline, training and understanding to reach this kind of knowledge. I believe some martial arts masters, sensie or instructors have achieved this kind of state due to years of training and experience. Achieving this kind of state lets them become aware with the moves of the opponent before they even execute it. But to maintain this kind of state you must maintain the standard of training, focus, mental and physical standard. What do you think will happen if we reach this kind of enlightenment? The opinion is yours.
