Notes in the Raw #21

Perceive, Process, Participate - Active

Activity/flow - life
anywhere that's not activity/flow - will notice more stuckness/ dead post or resistance to participate

NO can be the start of a process... yes to your no's... activity.

Notes in the Raw #20

If your intention is all over the place, there may be a different intention you are not noticing.

Quickest way to go to dead stance:
-Go blank
-Resist Future, Hold on strong to past.
-Searching for data is past/present/future
-Isn't that interesting? (more alive)

Notes in the Raw #19

It's not wrong, it's the way you're discovering it.
- must keep principles and understand the idea of medicine

Method is not the truth. Once you get the feeling, get rid of the method.

Want the person to get the principle first.
- understand the principle of the medicine

Notes in the Raw #18

When people start w/ outside or inside path - it sets up polarity, but middle path jumps out of polarity and goes into connection with unity.

***I'm going to depart from my "RAW" format for a minute to talk about resolution of paradox, and what this post means, including some other Wujifa philosophy for clarity.

When we talk about "middle" we don't mean middle in terms halfway between this and that. As far as you zoom in towards that middle, you're always going to have half be "this" and half be "that".

We're talking about the resolution of the paradox. The third thing.

Einstein said that no problem could be resolved from the state of mind that created it. In essence, this means that the paradox can't be resolved by finding the right "blend" on the slider.

Yin/Yang, Wuji. Wuji is not a point between Yin and Yang, but something outside of yin and yang. It's not a 50/50 blend. It's something completely different. To put it in physical terms, it's not "tilt the pelvis back" or "tilt the pelvis forward"... you could get stuck on that forever. It's not a tilting it just right and then holding it in that position. The solution is "Drop". You can (I can [and have]) get stuck on fiddling around with a slider, when in fact, the solution is the third thing - jumping outside of the slider in a way that accomplishes what you've been looking for all along.

Notes in the Raw #17

It's okay, that it's not okay, that it's not okay.
-----3 levels down, the okay is there.

Ask myself "is it okay?"
Telling myself it's okay doesn't work.
Joy in noticing myself a little more deeply.

Notes in the Raw #16

Freedom is the reality. All there is to do is realize it. You can choose, I can choose.

Good and Bad - judgments based on positionality.


Feeling changes - getting stuck on a feeling limits practice - gets stuck in the past instead of noticing what is developing.
