no ready made solution

In thinking about the openness required in kimusubi practice i thought of a title of an art work by john ferris. No Ready Made Solution. This was a found piece of linoleum that by chance had the shape of Ireland. He presented this as an artwork – a Ready made.
I thought the title expresses the perpetual beginner frame necessary. Being without either formal “techniques” or dredging the traces of what we thought had worked in the past. This is challenging in that little can be taken for granted. All we have is the authenticity of our attention and our openness to our partners shifting focus in this moment.
