“On zen”

“The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all physical action.”

“Turn into a doll made of wood: it has no ego, it thinks nothing, it is not grasping or sticky. Let the body and limbs work themselves out in accordance with discipline they undergone.”

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond like an echo.”

“Nothingness cannot be defined; the softest thing cannot be snapped.”

“I´m moving and not moving at all. I´m like the moon underneath the waves that ever go on rolling and rocking. It is not, “I am doing this”, but rather, an inner realization that ´this is happening through me´, or ´it is doing this for me´. The consciousness of self is the greatest hindrance to the proper execution of all pshysical action.”

“Do not run away, let go. Do not seek, for it will come and when least expected.”

“Give up thinking as though not giving it up. Observe techniques as though not observing.”

There is no fixed teaching. All I can provide is an appropriate medicine for a particular aliment.”

(Bruce Lee)
