Zanshindou
Zanshin is a state of relaxed awareness (literally "remaining mind"). It's usually related to martial arts, but I think it also applies to other forms of art, like singing or dancing and so on.

A major tenant in iaido; something we strive to cultivate.

"The best zanshin is no zanshin" is a commonly heard phrase.

:iconhug1plz: Thank you, Chiyo-san for this beautiful rendition!
