" My belief is in flesh and blood as being wiser than the intellect.
The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us.
It is how we know re are alive, alive to the depths of our souls
and in touch somewhere with the vivid reaches of the cosmos."
Having a practice like tai chi teaches us the wisdom of the body. Working with it slowly but surely reigns in the thinking mind. We learn little by little that we are not our thoughts we are so much more. Practicing on 'good ' days and 'off' days a steadiness develops which is a balm when it feels like things are falling apart and also calms the heart when it is ready to explode with joy.
