The Art of Dying

“The Art of Dying” is a metaphor and describes the Zen idea of letting our ego die. The ego is the whole set of experiences, accumulations, and memories that make up our view of ourselves. The ego holds our prejudices and distortions.

Death of the ego means we are open to criticism. We are embracing the process of learning to develop our abilities.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

A fighter should not concern himself with any expectations about the result. A fighter should continuously improve himself by using enough intelligence and training.

  1. The desire for victory;
  2. The desire to resort to cunning techniques;
  3. The desire to display all that has been learned;
  4. The desire to terrify the enemy;
  5. The desire to be passive;
  6. The desire to get rid of any evil that can affect you.

Knowledge is created from the past. Forgetting knowledge means the fighter can reach a state of freedom to move in the present moment.

A person with an ego is attached to a warped image, to the past, and to the future.
