Re: Training One Thing At A Time

Bill the only issue I have with mindfullness is that you can't "be here now" if you don't know what to do 'here and now".

Not saying you are saying this, just that I think it gets translated or interpreted wrongly by many in martial training.

Certainly you must pay attention to when you are training and focus on what you are doing.

Love Ram Dass as a Buddhist! Good stuff. I think there is value in meditations etc....but I believe martially, you must simply train, train, train...and the mindfulness follows...not leads.
