Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the Zen saying, Create Your Encounters! It states that the path of neutrality and equanimity is critical to one's ability to transform a situation of competition from a Confrontation, which is one-dimensional and static, to an Encounter, which is multifunctional and fluid. It compares Confrontation and Encounter, and how to prevail in an Encounter.
