|Whatever you're thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you're worrying, you are
planning. When you're appreciating you are planning...What are you planning?

The Intuitive Way By Penney Peirce
“An ancient Zen master, Takuan, describes how the mind of the martial artist functions. In two short essays,
‘No Gap’ and ‘Mind Like a Spark.’ he talks about the warrior’s fluidity in action, explaining that the
spontaneous responsiveness of the warrior is not related as much to quickness of action as it is to
immediacy of attention and freedom of mind. He says, ‘If your mind stops on the sword your opponent is
swinging at you, a gap opens up; and in that gap your action falters. If there is no gap between your
opponent’s striking sword and your action, the sword of the adversary will become your sword. A mind like a
spark means that state of mind where there is no gap. When flint is struck, sparks fly at once. ... There is no
interval for the mind to linger. ... if attention lingers, your mind is taken over by other.
Keep your mind rounded and extended evenly through space.”

that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. Harold Whitman
