Re: Even at Boot Camp...no one can reach inside you and make you feel. Your feelings

Uke can resist but the resistance that nage feels is nage's feeling

That is exactly what I said.
I still stand by it. I meant no offense to any one.
Leaving aside the boot camp experiences, which I also went through, I agree with Mary for the most part.

I was thinking about how a person responds to a situation at any given time. And how they might experience a similar situation after training.
I do think that circumstances and the context of the circumstances you are in can have you lose the moment. Way back when.... I went to my 20 year High School reunion...had a pretty good time and some fun....then next day when I woke up I was so down and upset....couldn't work it out right away. After some thought I realized that everyone had dropped back into their persona from the high school day.s....and for most it didn't work, but it included all of us. It is easy to slip back into habits and patterns if one recreates the environment. Once I understood I had a good laugh and when about the day.

as always
Gary.
