Theme: Holding on and letting go
To let go at the right time – and thereby discover its real self. To let go of the attempt to understand, control, define and explain.
In Zen archery, there is not only the goal outside yourself. There is also an inner goal that is just as important: Knowing when to let go, not only of the arrow, but also of your attempts to control, define and explain – and in doing that, you begin to discover a self deeper than your mind.
