I'm contemplating just how many 'its' there are to let go of ...
Why count 'em? Just let 'em all go. Mushin, the state of "no mind", is about acting without the time-consuming process of thinking. Those things you've conditioned yourself to do, but would rather do away with, are still thought about, although at much deeper than at a conscious level. The same practice and repetition that put them there can also take them away. Your "conditioning" can be "reconditioned".
