My teachers (and Principle 7) invite me to choose the level of intensity that is right for me. Say that and – BOOM – I’m in tight mind.
The trouble with tight mind is that it’s crowded: full of “shoulds,” “do I have to?s,” beliefs about getting it right, fear of discomfort.
The trouble with tight mind is that Lazy Daisy and Eager Beaver Overachiever are in there and those two do NOT get along.
When choosing movement intensity, better to go with Big Mind. Spacious, body~centered, present moment Big Mind. That’s where eons of wisdom is. There, the choice is obvious.
