Stop thinking so much, man, and just move.
Alan Watts on Mushin, empty mind/heart or the "State of No Mind" via Lectures Beyond Beyond.

Have a mind like a mirror, as Taoism says: "The perfect person employs this mind like a mirror: it grasps nothing, it refuses nothing, it receives but does not keep."

Anything that comes in front of the mirror, it reflects it instantly. When the moon rises, all bodies of water immediately reflect it without hesitation, without consideration. The West has much to learn from the East.
