The principle of ” Movement Seeking Stillness”.


The principle of ” Movement Seeking Stillness”.
The following example shows me explaining how when the kua/ inguinal crease changes , the shoulder nest also changes without any additional effort. The changes made in the lower body will affect the arm positions in the upper body via tissue connection. When I try to simulate a movement and move via contrivance and muscle then the posture is ineffective. When I allow the shoulder nests to change my arm position via the connection of the tissue into the lower body and kuas then I am finding a stillness in my body while moving. The shoulder joints are held loosely as are the arms and they simply change via the connective tissue because the lower body has changed. This causes the genesis of the action to be Yin in nature. This results in a type of force that is difficult to contend with, much like trying to hold wind or water back. This is also application of the principle “the waist is the commander”. When the quality of the arms and tissue is appropriate then your partner will start to respond in unusual fashion to your movement. It is absolutely vital that the overturning of the palms is a result of the turning of the waist . The stillness lies in the fact that the shoulder does not move of it’s own accord but only via connection through the soft tissue to the kua/inguinal crease.
