Are you talking about mushin (no mind)? Nothing mystical about that; it's just the process of being so engrossed in what you're doing at the moment to verbally/intellectually be aware of or analyze what you're doing, or that you're doing anything at all.

To achieve this rarified state, I recommend having lots of sex, or hitting your big toe with a hammer. Both will get you where you want to go.

Hmmm, I like the way you think...

Self-or-assisted flagellation and mind-altering substances can create a similar state of mind too, and can sometimes be BETTER than sex.

But that's DO-ing something to create No-thing....

Why not just simply.... BE... ? Like a child, engrossed in the moment... not No-thing-ness and not Full-ness... just BEING....

We are not Human Doings...
