Re: How do you train/achieve nothingness?

IMHO, one of the distinctions I like to offer is that there are things in life that are a "make" and there are things that are a "let".

You can't "make" someone love you, but you can "let" them. Love is a "let".

Spontaneity is a "let".

Mushin, no-thing-ness, is a "let".
This is true, and just like love and spontaneity there are things one can do with the mind and body that will enhance the possibility of "letting" Mu Shin happen.

Chance favours the prepared mind (and body in this case).
