The op touches on a vast subject of study.It's hard to know where to begin almost.So here we go.I think the mileage one gets out of this sort of
discussion really depends a lot more on personal experiences compared to book learning for example.
The op mentions the idea of energy, Chi in the context of the martial arts.I found the practice of Luk Tung (Kuen) soothing.It was part of the therapy
we did while in recovery at the local hospital.I found it healing, and practicing this made me more curious about energetic arts and yoga in
Over the years, I have met individuals who have been through really bad car accidents and other traumatic injuries.Some of them have been told that
they would probably never be able to walk again.The thing that I noticed about them was their iron will and high standards they held as they conducted
When I notice this, I usually ask them what their secret is.Yoga has been brought up on numerous occasions.The healing that they had seemed much more
then just a physical solution to their problems as well.I didn't get too personal with them, as to the particular forms they used.I'm grateful they
shared what worked for them with me.
Much of what the op shared resonates with my experiences.Another example that comes to mind, is the youthful looks of some older people too.The ones
I've met all appeared to have a good attitude about life, and this does seem to preserve them.10 or 15 years younger, it sparked further interest in
the power of the emotions linked with the body.
I have found practicing Five Rites yoga quick and effective.The synchronicity that come up when I practice this can be sort of overwhelming at
times.However it's one of my New Years resolutions to start practicing once again.
I haven't delved into the researchers op listed but relate to torsion none the less.I'm recalling sections from The Emerald Tablets of Thoth.Cycles,
Curves, and circular movement are mentioned in The Key of Time.I believe this sort of knowledge lies behind harnessing the energy of shape.
When perceiving attack, I usually try to observe where the sensations originate.
Heart or mind?Upstairs or downstairs?Inside or outside?Radar or Antennae?
The Tablets inspired me to practice becoming more conscious of this, through the study of the Key Of Magic. Light vs dark, the Emerald Tablets provide
plenty of room for study.It seemed very strange at first, but over the years the words recorded there have made much more sense.The more I studied
different traditions the easier it became to make something fruitful of it all.There is Light in those tablets.
Yesterday, someone was sizing me up.They were being tempted severely to try and hurt me physically.I say this because I could feel it in my
core.Fortunately, I was able to diffuse the situation.Hopefully, that peace lasts.I am better prepared now.
A bit hazy that description, it's tough describing it.Body consciousness can be very relative.A more healthy relationship to the body, encourages a
better relationship to the mind.With practice, the flow of information can mimic that internal energy.I use it to go "under" an attack and reach up
This part of my belief system at work under the hood here
Thinking of energy and coincidence, there have been times when I have been more fearful of synchronicity. In particular some of the more sensitive
things I've tried to share, have shared elsewhere and more generally offline I suspect the world pushes back on what I put out there.
With some more experience under my belt, I feel I've become more receptive to the subtle energy within and without. I've lost count of the times the
electronics I use malfunction.I have noticed the machines at the self checkout seem to act unusual or stop working altogether. Not my cup of tea, I
tend to hit the grocery store often right at closing time, lol.
Seriously though, even going to post things online it's been frustrating at times.So I usually practice saving my work for later, just in case.I
figure scales can be sensitive to em fields.Now I am more careful when reacting to this, and try not to think to deeply about topics I'm passionate
about while using them.While In the past, it would have been easier for my fears to get the better of me.
