Marc's Reflection on Aikido & True Play

There is no “doing” in melting
Only letting

No language
Nor self-violence


Living from the Belly

April 6th, 2012 · No Comments

Mind and muscles attempt to keep the world at bay
Belly (center) accepts the world and moves with it
Even the activity of the mind and muscles is accepted and digested
Mind and muscles strive
Belly digests and rests into living

Live from belly, breath from belly, move from belly, sense from belly


The feeling of innovation

What is the feeling of innovation?

Letting the outside in

Being the outside

Openness–riskless undefended openness


Smiling, chuckling, even laughing

Together–absent any violence, delicately respectful.



What is the feeling of rigid control?

Open up
to the future
that wants to emerge
through us.
