Post title: what I needed to learn myself was how to let it all fall together (from Tao Bums)
(Jan 29 2010 at 02:03 PM)
I have learned to be very cautious when anyone says to do something, and especially with regard to the breathing. My preference is instruction that describes reality and emphasizes self-surrender, not because an intentional approach is wrong (can't get away from it, really), but just because what I needed to learn myself was how to let it all fall together. Relearn the way I hold myself upright, the way I set mindfulness in front, from the inside out. I never was any good at intuitive mathmatics in school, only at strict axiomatic proof (which I realize has its limitations); I couldn't find anybody who could actually teach me how to sit the lotus, although they were clearly masters themselves. Sigh. So I prefer an explanation of the essential relationships, in the terms I can experience, to allow nature to work its magic.
