no room here

Myo is a Japanese word signifying a mode of activity which comes directly out of one's inmost self without being intercepted by the dichotomous intellect.

The act is so direct and immediate that intellection finds no room here to insert itself and cut it to pieces.

Freedom, creativity, and myo are synonymous.

--- from 'Zen and Japanese Culture' by D.T. Suzuki
