Hello Jude:

Belief or not for myself is the lessor issue. Provided I can improve my technique, find more subtle power (ie with less external effort), don't care what you call it... if I can replicate it (in spite of my doubts)... I'm "in" show me, teach me please....

Jeff




Hi Jeff.

I dont think it is as easy as that.
It looks to me like the whole idea of the connection between physical and mental health was known centuries ago.
How this was I havent a clue considering that it seems the knowledge of the human body wasnt known in the Western world at that time.

It seems they kept a book in China recording centuries of gained knowledge.

Most Westerners see some of this knowledge as a joke. By the looks of things so do some Easterners.

What are the secrets?
Jeff I am just a begginer. My studies so far and my thoughts.


All I can see that I think might work at this moment in time is meditation/ nutrition/sleep/exercise and massage.

Meditation
Not some unknowing money grabbing guru B/S but slowly trying to adjust the mind.
Perhaps deciding on a specific thought pattern and keep working at it untill it comes natural.
If the conscious and the subconscious mind are in conflict
then the whole system gets screwed up.
Some gurus write about some form of meditation autosuggestion and creative visualization done at certain times are the key. I should imagine it is something that has to be done all the time.
Combined with the other things.


The endocrine system controls the mind. The mind controls the Endocrine system. Which is the ruler? Physical exercise can have some control of all of it. They all control physical exercise.
Nutrition and sleep and other processes have a large effect on everything.

What is the song?" Use your mind the rest will follow?
I think they got that wrong. It seems to be a lot of things that need to be worked on/corrected.

Jude

Walking in bagau
Slow movements in Tai Chi
Correct body alignment gives more energy?





Possibly. I like to think of it more as we expend less energy because we move in a more efficient manner therefore we have more energy to expend.




The production of power through torque brought about by natural body movement is one thing I have only slightly touched on.
Sprinting using the momentum from the opposite side of the body.(Seemingly frowned up on by track coaches)
Using the walking movement/ opposite body side to produce power for a strike.

Interesting. This all reminds me of my early Trad karate days. Physical training and meditation. The problem was no one had a clue what we were meant to have been doing when meditating. Pity realy because if knew what I was looking for then I wouldnt be looking now.
