We human beings just by the way we stand represent all our subtle conditionings. Physical posture reveals psychological state.
Tai Chi Chuan books talk about Yin and Yang in Push Hands and we certainly know when we are in Yin and when we are in Yang in Push Hands, but throughout we try to ensure that our expressions remain in the central channel.
“Direct transmission – the highest way of learning – no words, just become.”
If you choose and fail, at least you have chosen.
If you fail to choose, you have merely failed.
Are we headed towards the highest common goal or the lowest common denominator?
Beyond realization, it is the actualization from repeated imbibing & experience that really matters.
We all strive towards becoming?
Subject: Blocks on subtle system
Topics covered during discussions and teaching:
- A catch can manifest as physical pain in the body,
- Sifu suffered right shoulder injury years ago. Physical treatment of this injury did not address the cause, in Swadisthana chakram.
- Going deeper, the cause may only be the symptom of a deeper underlying cause (another subtle block).
The subtle system is quite complex.
