Re: Don't Create What You Don't Want

Great article, thank you.

"The instructor demonstrated that if he tensed up his muscles, so did I. If he relaxed, so did I. If he jerked, I jerked back. If he moved slow and smooth, I just followed. If he pushed, I resisted. If he just reached through me, I followed his subtle suggestion. If he appeared angry, frustrated, or struggling, I would reciprocate. When he focused his eyes though me and let his body follow it, it was an invitation to me to let my body go too. He said, don't create what you don't want, and create what you do."

I thought this was something only I was noticing, saying and believing; nice to hear I am not alone in this belief.
