Master Your Movement
I was listening to Kung Fu Sifu, Al Dacascos, on Lama Tantrapa's Qigong Radio show last night. He was sharing the difference between practice and mastery. One of the things he said really struck me. He explained that he wouldn't have a student practice breaking wood 1,000's of times until he was exhausted. He would direct the student to practice 25 times with focused force.
What we do in life, echoes in eternity. Maximus, the movie Gladiator.
What would your life be like, if instead of flailing about trying this, that and the other, you focused your force into 1 or 2 areas, repeatedly. What if you picked the streams that were riskiest and most you, not necessarily the most accepted and popular, but the ones where there was enough juice that you could focus your force consistently?
What if you focused on the 1 or 2 things where you could make the most difference, even though it might not make you the most accepted?
Take a moment to notice the difference between the things that show up in your world to move you and the things in your world where you resist movement. They might point you in the direction of your mastery and your movement and ‘echo in eternity.'
