Mokuso in Zazen
Mokuso roughly translates to “silent or thoughtful mind”. Inhaling through the nose, exhaling through the mouth, focusing on breath, we effectively clear our mind.
Karate and Mokuso teaches us the ability to be able to regulate over selves and not let things overwhelm us, but instead regain control in the moment. Even while sitting in zazen. After a few minutes your legs become numb and uncomfortable. People begin to figit, except for Sensei and some of the higher ranks. They are still able to find the present, and forget about the discomfort. In the end your mind should be in a clear and clean state.
