Use Your Intuition Not Your Intelligence
If a Martial Artist uses his intelligence he gets hit. You have to leave your intelligence behind, because each time it is a totally new experience, a new moment; each time you spar it is never the same. The old experience never comes of use. Use your intelligence and you land yourself in trouble. Rely on your intuition and you succeed.
The Master cannot be held captive; the Master who is willing to be enclosed in the disciple’s grasp is no Master. Most Masters are like that, directed by their disciples telling them what should be done, what shouldn’t be done.
You will not find a true Master in these Martial Art schools; you will find fakes masquerading as Masters. A true Master cannot be held captive. You cannot direct a Buddha. They obey only their own will. The wind blows where it will. Where it does not blow, there is nothing you can do. If you try to gasp it in your fist, whatever little was there, that too will go out. Those who liberate others cannot be taken captive. How can you bind the very person from whom you seek liberation?
