O’Sensei on ‘nen’ (1)…

Place  your ‘nen‘ outside of yourself [ – just behind you – or in the distance, even – ] and you will return to the ki of complete emptiness, you will find yourself standing in that sacred and magical center of complete emptiness where you are above life and death. And it is this that is the “okugi of Budo” that you have so often heard talked about.
