To kill the time... I lived in the moment.
A life sublime... my youth well spent.
An open ear... a severed tongue
Living life... forever young.

Sometimes Evil pursues the Warrior of the Light, and when it does, he calmly invites it into his tent.
He asks Evil: "Do you want to hurt me or use me to hurt others?"
Evil pretends not to hear. It says that it knows of the darkness in the Warrior's soul. It touches wounds that have not yet healed and calls for vengeance. It mentions certain tricks and subtle poisons that will help him to destroy his enemies.
The Warrior of the Light listens. If conversation lags, he encourages Evil to continue talking by asking all about its various plans.
When he has heard everything, he gets up and leaves. Evil feels so weary and empty after all this talk that it does not have the strength to follow him.

"To persevere is favorable." Main teaching of the I Ching

When I draw my bow," says Herrigel to his Zen master, "there comes a point when I feel as if I will get breathless if I do not let fly at once."
"If you continue to try to provoke the moment when you must release the arrow, you will never learn the art of the archer," says his master. "Sometimes, it is the archer's own overactive desire that ruins the accuracy of the shot."

"The way involves respect for all small and subtle things. Learn to recognize the right moment to adopt the necessary attitudes." Lao Tzu

"Even if you have already fired a bow several times, continue to pay attention to how you position the arrow and how you flex the string."

"When a beginner knows what he needs, he proves more intelligent than an absent-minded sate."

"The consequences of our actions are the scarecrows of fools and the beacons of wise men." T.H. Huxley

"A Warrior knows that the farthest-flung star in the Universe reveals itself in the things around him."

A little kid asked me "Can a sharp stick be a sword?"
I answered "The soul of the sword lies in the maker."

What do I know about Zen?
Better to think
less, or more
truly, perhaps, more
like a fold in a piece
of white paper,
line or end
or edge, dividing two
that look the same.
~Amy Miller, Folds

Once a group of ten blind masseuses were traveling together in the mountains, and when they began to pass along the top of a precipice, the all became very cautious, their legs shook, and they were in general struck with terror. Just then the leading man stumbled and fell off the cliff. Those that were left all wailed, "Ahh, ahh! How piteous!" But the masseuse who had fallen yelled up from below, "Dont be afraid. Although I fell, it was nothing. I am now rather at ease. Before falling I kept thinking 'What will I do if I fall?' and there was no end to my anxiety. But now I've settled down. If the rest of you want to be at ease, fall quickly!"
~Story from Hagakure~

There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.
~Einstein~
