Marc's Reflection on Aikido & True Play

Changing the incline

February 27th, 2011 · No Comments

Requires attention
Is pretty easy

Changing intention (arising from from a “hidden” incline) is more difficult

Changing behavior (muscles & bones, feelings, thoughts) is even more difficult

All are levers, doors, openings for learning and change.

The incline is the farthest up stream,
with the least attachment and momentum to deal with


Checking the incline

I can “feel” the incline
My momentary inclination
Away or against

This critical information is easily available to me.
It is the root, the well spring
Of what is going to happen

A little attention to my incline
Changes everything

A true nonlinear effect
Real leverage in my journey back to
True play
