Garg Aradhya plays the pants of Mighty Magnus

In a recent Pro Chess League match between the Norway Gnomes and the Delhi Dynamite a young Indian player named Garg Aradhya rated 2315 played the mighty Magnus Carlsen. More than 500 rating points separated the two players. This is normally decisive without question. But in this match the rating difference did not matter. It seemed that Garg Aradhya literally played the pants of Magnus Carlsen. Unexplainable Garg Aradhya lost the time scramble in a winning completely winning position with a piece up. Before that he even could have ended the game with a simple win. All in all Garg Aradhya played brilliantly against the world champion.

Was es ist

Was es ist

Es ist Unsinn
sagt die Vernunft
Es ist was es ist
sagt die Liebe

Es ist Unglück
sagt die Berechnung
Es ist nichts als Schmerz
sagt die Angst
Es ist aussichtslos
sagt die Einsicht
Es ist was es ist
sagt die Liebe

Es ist lächerlich
sagt der Stolz
Es ist leichtsinnig
sagt die Vorsicht
Es ist unmöglich
sagt die Erfahrung
Es ist was es ist
sagt die Liebe

Liberate your mind

Liberating your mind.
You set your seul free.

Let your spirit realm free,
join nature without effort.

Wuwei of the small mind.

How do you do it?

Broaden and extend your vision.
Let your deep mind rest in Shen.

This is when the Master has returned to your house.

My Heart is calm. Fear and grasping voluntarily left Xin.

My  intent rests in my Center. Yi commands central equilibrium.

Dantien is full and steady.

Always calm and ready to act according to circumstance. It remains calm.

Is that not the state of the Universe?

One calmness dictates all movement.

If the focus is on the Qi, it will stagnate.

Get the foundation. And you will find the initiative naturally in order to do what needs to be done.

“Let go” of your self.

Not having the servant as the master of the house is perfection.

Shen fills out the whole space, my awareness is everywhere.

Somehow everything is just perfect. When I allow it to be imperfect.

It will always remain so.

If I do not strive, I arrive.

Everything arrives. Nothing is undone.

This is the message for those who understand.

Without trying you succeed.

In realty, it’s nothing really.

And of surely it’s everything also.

Hold on to the paradoks, and you will inevitably stumble into it.

Joy and happiness are everywhere to be found.

Yin and yang in harmony returns.

The great mystery of the female Mother prevail.

From nothing to something and back

I let go and enter the domain of no one.

Heaven and Earth are one.
The circle and square are equals.

They separate as necessary without effort.
First boundless stillness, then endless movement.

It makes no sense to talk about form or formlessness.
Substance or no substance – what’s the difference?

Body, energy and mind – what are they?
I am just a conduit of the forces of Nature.

My mind drives and fills out Form.
Empty but full, it pervades the Universe.

I stand in the Center.
Watching the Master and the servant at work.

When we offer no resistance,
we meet no resistance.

Miracles and Mystery.
The mundane stuff is welcomed like a friend.

I have no mind of my own.
Eventually this will fall away too.

Perfection in imperfection.
Imperfection in perfection.

It seems as if I am there, but I am not.
I am not, but am I right here.

Others cannot fathom it.
I cannot fathom it either.

Naturally – it’s ok.

(Poem about the liberation of mind, heart and intention “Shen, Xin and Yi” in spiritual work like: Standing Meditation, Qigong, Neigong, Neijia and Taiji )
