When I was in grade 5 I began to "play" the violin. I continued this attempt through grade 7. I too enjoyed the Can Can and practiced it over and over and over. I too had soo much fun going faster and faster and faster. I loved watching the rosin fly off the bow from the speed, feeling the strings vibrating through my body, and my fingers bouncing like hot water on the electric pan.......I know, the odd things that exhilarated me........(experiencing through my consciousness can be frightening even to me, haahaaa)
It amazed me how I could focus my mind on the sound of the finished product, dah, dah dah dah dah dahhhhh dahhhhhh, and learn to "let" my body make it happen, seperate yet in synch. The instantaneous energetic commands in the background that allowed the concept of what I wanted played through the internal sense of the sound I wanted to make connected to the body parts required to achieve it and the lightning synapsis firings to materialize this . I suppose that could explain why I always thought it sounded better than maybe it actually did.......
Kinda like when you first learned to walk, you saw others doing it and maybe you waited til you were good and pissed that you wanted to get somewhere fast or get way from something or, maybe you just took off without thinking about trying to before you realized that you were doing it. Like when you are learning to ride a bike and someone tells you they have your back and you peddle like crazy until you realize your far ahead and they don't have your back! Whatever motivated your first impulse of the body to follow the mind and connect with what could produce the results instead of repeating the I can't do that...........
Well, when you get older and "wiser" you talk yourself out of alot of things you "can't" do because well, You Can't.........
if you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.
Were you the kind of kid that resisted limits? The adults around you telling you No, you can't do that! Did you say, watch me? Or, did you conform and not try or did you keep trying and trying and trying, loose interest, or breakthrough and surprise yourself?Somehow life has a way of taming your steam..........Or steaming you into taming life........Sometimes, we tame ourself..........
.I was with a friend the other day talking about a situation, mind you there had been many previous conversations about this situation, many renumeratings yet not a lot of resolutions, I was in one of my moods......you know the impatient feeling suffocated and irritable- up against limits- edgy.....I looked at her, I guess my exasperation evident- I am not a poker player, couldn't if I tried (couldn't not can't ,hahaha) and said rather sternly with conviction ( I call it determination) WELL, WHAT CAN you do? Rather taken back she just looked at me. After a few moments of silence, I attempted to pick up the conversation.
I said, I guess what I'm trying to say is, we have this same "conversation" over and over and over, let's by pass the mind, focus on what you want, let it guide us to what You CAN do now, and use it to move us to the result.......It might be exhilarating, Or, is that what you are afraid of?
Sometimes, the best action is get out of your own way and let it happen.........Enjoying the ride
Once Thomas the engine built momentum he fed it with, I think I can I think I can I know I can I know I can,
Yep, I did it, I DID IT!!
Where in life CAN you CAN CAN faster?
