This is what I'm talking about. In all four areas of life; one's inner world, physical health and body, relationships and creative prosperity, there are modes of experience unknown to the conventional.
And on that note, that's a new level of intimacy in relationships. What's a new level of physical health and strength throughout ageing?
Well here's my friend, Peter Ragnar, demonstrating Roman Chair Sit Ups, in a video that he's allowed me to save to my Vimeo account so you can see it free from the ads and distractions of YouTube.
Peter is in his mid-seventies here! He's doing sit ups clutching six 25 pound weights. He's not breaking sweat, he's smiling and his breathing hasn't even changed. Please re-think your view of what's possible for the human body.
The reality of ageing is fine. What people conventionally live by, however, is the self-fulfilling prophecy of artificial limiting beliefs.
And if you're thinking the wisdom I promote needs to mean doing things you don't want to, and 'No pain, no gain', it doesn't. As David Heard taught me, "Pain is the body's signal that something is wrong, so 'No pain, no gain' was alwasy going to be a dodgy premise.
Our task is to heal our relationship to our body and to movement.
Unleashed Creative Potential
There are two extreme ends of a spectrum: One is to take whatever job you can get and hope that your skills, personality and interests match it - or shoehorn yourself into the role if they don't.
The second is to find circumstances whereby you can fully employ and express your abilities and creativity from the inside out - and if you can't find those circumstances, you make them.
I'm not saying that either is right or wrong. What I'm saying is that you have a choice which approach you wish to adopt.
