“Busily running around in little circles, this is not kyudo. Come to a stop. Enter a big circle. Mushin, empty heart. This is kyudo. This is high quality practice. Trying to master hitting the target is the way of desire. Not helpful. That’s a road for people who want to defeat their perceived enemies."
