I wrote this years ago after reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig

So the thing to do when working on a motorcycle, as in any other task, is to cultivate the peace of mind which does not separate one’s self from one’s surroundings.  When that is done successfully then everything else follows naturally. Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.

Robert M. Pirsig,  Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, pg. 300

 

Peace of mind produces the correct adjustment, the correct adjustment produces innately correct results and innately correct results produces a practice which will be a material reflection for others to see the serenity at the center of it all.
