Marc's Reflection on Aikido & True Play

No Matter What (parasympathetic perspective)

At once

From vertical (parasympathetic)

Always available,

I can sense my own horizontal (adrenergic) inclinations

And notice,

From vertical.

Things change.

Drop into gravity’s calm hand

Checking the incline

February 27th, 2011 · No Comments

I can “feel” the incline
My momentary inclination
Toward
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

Develop a bias against violence
Lean away from self violence
Lean toward presence and connection
With self and others

Incline

My precise state of
Slope
Tilt
Leaning
Bias.
The pre-intention
From which the intention originates
Which leads through intention to the action of
Turning
Toward
Away or Against

Inclination to protect self or to connect with self and others
Isolation or I-I

Turn toward the inclination
Observe that
