When a person tries so hard to remove their ego, they get caught up within their ego.

We can not be rid of the ego.  We can learn to banish it’s domineering nature and relegate it to the backound of our mind.

We must empty our mind of materialistic attachments and egotistical vanity.  Forget the self.

When a martial artist is physically relaxed and mentally calm, he is in a controlled state of coordination.  The body in sync with the mind.
