Agilize the spirit

“[…] the body relaxation should extend itself in psycho-spiritual, in order to agilize and free the spirit. Agilize for the sake of freedom, and free, for the sake of the primordial agility, something that is substantially different from anything that is known by spiritual agility.”

“There is, thus, between a state of body relaxation and the state of spiritual freedom, a level difference, which no longer depends only of the breath. This difference can only be overcome by a detachment from all and any connection, a total Ego abandonment, so that the soul, plunging itself, rediscover the full power of its unspeakable origin.”

(Eugen Herrigel)
