Hi Mary, what do you think about playing with this idea: How and why would you be - or want to be - "very heavy" when the body and mind are empty? How about being "light." Being full of light - instead of "potential."

Also, rather than moving into a space that uke occupies, you create a new space. A space where you both can exist in harmony. Uke is creating a space that says you have something they want, and the only way to get it is to come and kick your booty - and deprive you of your space and your booty. But you can create a space in which everyone gets what they really want. Love. Harmony. Peace. And ice cream and cake and party hats.
Ummm... maybe on some days,other days that is a little to fluffy... maybe other days I like what I said.
