Stepping into the Canvas with Mushin. Mushin is a Japanese term for without mind. Meaning that an individual’s practice of self-mastery allowed them to enter a state of no thought and no emotions. They merely allow the flow of life to guide them through their daily events or specific tasks, seeming effortlessly accomplishing their tasks. To reach a place of no mind, we must first let go of any pent-up emotions…letting go of any self-defeating thoughts. As we step out today, try to focus on letting go of what we think things should be and replace it with an attitude of awe. With no mind, we accept the day as a new beginning…everyday. Doing so…we enjoy the Canvas and all its beauty!
