At the heart of Tai Chi Chuan is this principle: Whatever comes, let it come. This is exactly what most of us don’t do. Instead, we re-act, stand against, do again what didn’t work the first time.
All that’s necessary is to want what happens. Herein the flower of peace, the death of desire.
Something happens. Mind says, “That should not have happened.” So now I’m at war with reality, still bullishly unaware that I invigorate and prolong whatever I’m against.
If you want to prolong something, be against it.
Be the absence of wall, a window or door, so light shines in.
