‘The Mind Must Be Set Free.’

‘To reign in the mind tightly takes away its freedom. To keep our mind in close confines may be a necessary beginner’s habit, but doing so for our entire life prevents us rising to a new level, and will result in a life of unfulfilled potential.’

As Sensei Hazard says the simple is difficult

The difficult can be made simple by steps

Lown thocht* held light yet strong frees.

 

Like silk arrested internally for kamae*

A strike or block must suddenly be and power

From what was emptiness and calm

Be as lightning stretching across the Verdun summer sky.

 

(* Soft thought, Kamae-readiness, posture to begin)
