Clairity of purpose (care and line)
Is essential for Connection

Tempo

Move at the speed of connection

Any thing faster lacks integrity
Produces fear and disharmony

Anything faster is instrumental
“I-It”

Connect to
Understand the other’s situation
You cannot blend otherwise

Play with it
Become exquisitely aware of the sensations of
The transition moments
The reaction
The relaxation

The edges of heaven and hell
Peace and war
Harmony and discord
Play and fear
Joy and dispair

Playing with Fearsome Others

June 23rd, 2011 · No Comments

Master level akido?

I-I with fearsome people?

Get as big as their fearsome world

Include my world

Non- collision

Curiosity

Help them if I can

Without giving up my integrity

Move toward a creative space

Care without Attachment

Attachment and fear
Or
Care and playfulness

Curiosity, learning, exploring
The “other’s” world.

Playfully looking for shared care
Connection at the edge
