“I began to ceaselessly examine and confirm my state of mind: myself
when it went well, myself
when it went poorly, myself
when I was trying to defeat my partner, myself
when I was feeling fear, myself
when I was feeling insecure, etc.
From these confirmations, I learned the importance of ceaselessly keeping my mind calm.”
