week-end report, week 03, 2013

Taking my shot at describing, capturing for future, further access, what I learned this week—whether I really understood it, or not.

[1] if it's obvious you're not getting it

Note to self:
If it's obvious, you're not getting it.

You're breaking off a piece of it—focusing on what you like, on what you worry about, what you recognize as familiar, or wish would just stop.

You're trying to get in and out fast.
Probably trying to skip the getting in altogether.

You're seeking out solid. ground. objects. answers.

Why is that?

[2] what would it be like to practice?

What would it be like to practice?
I don't know. I don't think I've practiced anything ever.

Maybe for a moment here and there, but in general, even if it's fun, it's a test, a task, a performance. I'm doing it. I know what I'm doing, or know that I don't know what I'm doing, or what I'm doing is learning how to do it. But there is a how to do it

...doing vs. practicing.

Not totally clear on the distinctions between doing vs practicing, but I think even my yoga practice is more doing than practicing.

[3] getting it right

That might be the difference between doing and practicing, how much of your mind, body and heart's attention is fixed on the idea of getting it right. 

Not that getting it right or getting it done can just be tossed out. Just wondering what it be like if some of the time, I was practicing rather than doing.

Then again, it's all practice.


For the next thing.

For how you are in the next thing, in the next now.
