mastery over your instrument takes time, unless of course you cheat and get the soul-graft that HendrixCorp are offering these days. but why would anyone do that, I wondered?
My unspoken question was answered when I looked across to the other side of the shop and saw a spotty fifteen year-old, ugly as sin, wailing away on his axde whilst three very attractive women watched his every ear-splitting move…

the state that exists when one person or group has power over another; “her apparent dominance of her husband was really her attempt to make him pay attention to her”
great skillfulness and knowledge of some subject or activity; “a good command of French”

The mastery of blindfolding is an old art that dates back to the metazoic era in the times where dinosaurS AND BIRDS LIVED IN HARMONY WITH THE GOATS.

Mastery became an obsession for him, yet how could he find a submissive – and where ?. He began to stalk the streets, making sure to play the shadows

under the mastery of my queen, I’ve been forced to shape my ways. due to tragedy or due to destiny. has this been meant to be? love and hate, growing up. changes were faced but still linger. never will be free.

I wish I was in the mastery, they make us go to war, they make us make other people unemployed, they say that God will judge them or history, I’d rather it was us.

It wasn’t often that Jack could say that he was the master of his own fate. No, that would have been too easy for the poor bastard. He hadn’t been the same since they’d committed him to The Institution, either. For many nights, he crawled surreptitiously under the other inmates beds.

“Yes! Well, he never had much of either to be perfectly honest. That is to say, I didn’t. Oops.”

mastery of a skill is something truly, indisputably worth while. Some people value themselves, and others, according to how much money they make, or how much they have in the way of personal possessions. I consider such people retards. They probably got picked at school because they didn’t have anyth

Mastery of one’s self is unattainable simply by the logic that seeking such a skill is inherently not masterful of one’s self. The only way to complete such a task is through the subconscious and unknowing self.

Mastery is the noun which describes one as a master. This is very imporant because it shows that one is superior and has a certain type of important skill.
The mastery of a certain concept, or the mastery of a certain instrument. The word “mastery” shows that one has reached a level of advanced proficiency.
The word mastery is derived from the word master. A master is somebody who is in control of something and an expert in a certain field.

trying to master the ancient art of ju jitsu, pauline splintered her hip. it was while writhing around on an old paint-splattered yoga mat that she displaced it first, but it was the falling training dummy that she used as practise that fell on top of her that caused the hip-splintering blow.

Mastery….makes me think of golf, of video games. But then, moving past the Dungeons and Dragons, it reminds me of myself, of my potential lately. Mastery. Sounds like something a motivational speaker would say, something that would plug into their speech. A buzz word. But no, not for me. for me it will be something like a goal, like a plan. Perhaps it will be just idealism.

he was the master of his own domain, he could not/would not see it any other way.
he crumbled at the thought of letting it go, allowing it to flow, to breath to be, to feel, to go, to move.
he was the master cause he didn’t move, he stayed in place and watched the rest of the world change around him. in the end, he was the strongest tree, with the thickest trunk… and when the wind finally came it cracked him in half because he never learned how to bend.

mastery has got to be there, hierarchy. there’s got to be an enemy, got to be a friend. anarchism can’t work. you can’t go against the grain if there’s no grain there, and you can’t resent the grain.
if you are the cashier, you can’t resent the manager. being the manager could just be their place in the world.

i have the mastery of my universe. To teach. To create. To achieve greatness because I Can. I believe that if we truly master what we set out to be, to do, we can accomplish even greater things.

Mastery, the title implies a near complete command of a skill or area, Mastery is the highest level one can achieve, personally mastery is the completion of a goal to me, one I hope to achieve with skill and patience, if I can master a martial art, a painting style or a craft then i consider myself having completed that area and ready to move on to the next. However if one achieves mastery where is there to go?

mastery of any subject is difficult without applying yourself. you must study by whatever means you have. success can only come with hard work and perhaps a good memory. suppose you want to master the art of brain surgery. you must graduate from highschool, college, get into medical school, spend lots of time there, decide on your specialty, spend many more hours, graduate again, do residency and internship and then, and only then, will someone let you practice on their head. and by then we can only hope your mastery of brain surgery will be complete.

I don’t think that I will ever truly master any topic. Though I would like to master many. The problem is that I don’t know which one to start on. Computers, Fantasy Writing, Criminal Investigation.

It is important to have a skill you can consider to be mastered. to have mastery of something is important for ego, self esteem and continual motivation. Seek mastery. Seek greatness. Don’t settle for mediocrity. Master any and skills that make you happy and interested

master of the mountains the mist the cold your mind is a crystal watch click click into place the gears fall you are as precise as nature as the gold in your eye, everything has a place and nothing without a place is anything.
the stones fall from your pocket, the stones fall onto other stones until the clattering stops.

The strange thing about mastery is how easily you can lose it. No matter how could you are, you won’t always be.
By Collleen on 04.21.2008
Mastery.. some say the key is practice. But maybe you need more than a lot of time and some willpower. I for one often need the feedback and support of others to accomplish or master anything, the years have shown. If you plan on mastering something then, don’t go solo!

He was one of those people who knew just what to do in any situation. He was strong and capable, and he knew this about himself. But she was on a higher plane, she took his confidence and made it look pathetic in the wake of her sheer power and strength over all of life’s foibles and missteps. There was only one thing she knew was certain of her place in the world at any given moment: mastery. She was mayster.
