Well… continuing to explore that crazy amazing insight, I’ve hit that point where now nothing seems to work anymore, where all the amazing feelings and results from just last week now I cannot reproduce one iota and everything falls apart at the lightest push.
When you deepen your understanding and dive into a new or deeper concept, the masters have noted, it will feel as though you are beginning all over.
So, intellectually I know this is on the path, but dang if it still ain’t a bit demoralizing!
And I’ve already got the next practice scheduled to keep on playing.
Oliver – when you practice, practice only what that day brings – not what it was the day before. You will go through different phases each day and it is important that you do not judge one day’s results against another and deem it wrong. They all have value and they all contribute. Look at each one and study it – it is neither wrong nor right.
I’m right there with you Jamie! I am completely amused at this (expected) progression… and at my calculating self’s reaction to it. :) I very much take to heart Sifu’s teachings on avoiding good/bad and on the joy of the journey. :)
