Close to the Idea
This quote is close to the idea. It is from Leap of Perception by Penney Peirce, page 170: “When your attention fills your present moment, it may seem that time stops. ‘Speed’ becomes a magical kind of no-speed in which everything is instantaneous, coordinated, and synchronous. Zen warriors knew that success was based on fluidity in action and spontaneous responsiveness–but that this was not a function of speed. Their success was possible through immediacy of action and freedom of mind, where attention didn’t stop and linger on any one thing, because that would cause a gap in the Flow, which would lead to defeat.”
This is what I am looking for: freedom, spontaneity, inner knowing of what to do, simplicity, and full-on engagement (no boredom).
On page 203, I find an intriguing quote: “[Y]ou might make a game of becoming a clear space in the world.” I love this idea. Releasing inner clutter and becoming deeply available for others is highly appealing.
