It is not like I don't KNOW this, but it still surprises me every single time. If I manage to get myself into a calm state of mind, I tend to play better on the goban. This week has had some focus on finding calmness, and I can clearly notice it in my game. I suspect that adding meditation to my daily to-do list would not be bad. In my spare time.
Anyway, this weekend I attended an iaido workshop and I could feel the calmness carrying over onto the goban. I might be able to get away with daily iaido instead of daily meditation, just because I am lazy like that. Yes, in my spare time also.
Some day I will learn how to play this game. And some day I will find my inner calmness whenever I want it.
