Posts Tagged ‘State Of Mind’

As for increasing or furthering your understanding of reality, if you practice push-hands without attachment to results and without expectations of any sort you will gradually come to a state of functioning without the use of your discriminating intellect.  Your mind will not and really cannot draw distinctions of any sort as you push, because your reactions in attack and defense will then slow or stop altogether.  It is this state of mind, of being fully in the moment, which prepares the ground for flashes of enlightenment or of seeing the world more clearly.

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work.  Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

Peace is not the absence of war.  It is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition of benevolence, confidence, and justice.
