The Tiger's Mouth Blog: Consistent, Continuous Feeling
My antique grandfather clock requires winding each week. I feel the association with it as I stand near it in my own daily practice. As I wind it, there is a consistent, continuous feeling and I know that there is something more than just the turning and hands moving. Something tells me there is a point where I should stop…too much and it is overwound, not enough and it won’t keep on ticking. My own practice asks me to know “what is enough”. Do I challenge myself to do 1% more each day, finding balance and understanding?
For me, the foundations of Taoist Tai Chi® arts are like winding up every cell in my body in order to function at my best. So, like winding the clock, I continue my daily practice looking for that feeling and understanding.
