“People who are specialists in training practice what they do until they can become totally one with the doing of it, whether it’s the cooking, holding the knife, the cleaning, sweeping, holding the broom, the walking – doing it totally without one single thought inserted in there, and doing it in the way that thoughts don’t enter. This is the basic principle of training, and not becoming hard and rigid in the doing of that, but to practice so that we are doing it so thoroughly that we can do it naturally, and it becomes soft in the doing.”
