Re: Up on your toes: cleaning the gutters

Hey David, these are alignment exercises. Like getting a car up on the racks and aligning and balancing the tires. This has a lot less to do with telling people how to drive their car, and more just knowing that regardless of how they drive, the car performs optimally when the parts are aligned and each allowed to perform their contribution to the total operation of the car. At that point, the will of the driver becomes more immediate, as the car itself - the technology - becomes more transparent.

And we all know the benefits of keeping a car properly maintained. Not only in terms of performance and enjoyment, but also cost-of-operation and longevity. Same with our bodies.
