Ever Wonder Why Kung Fu Sifu’s (teachers) Talk In Riddles?
I was just thinking about all those old kung fu movie’s, you know the ones where the wise old teacher bestows wisdom on their student.
Usually the student walks away scratching their head wondering what the heck was just said to them. I think partly the problem is that in many instances there aren’t words to explain what it means to be sensitive.
That is because it’s a feeling more than it is a thought. I remember when I first started taking kung fu classes that I would go home and watch kung fu videos and it just looked like chop kick, kick, chop, block .
It wasn’t until I started feeling energy move through my body did I start seeing how it flows through the body. It took me many years of diligent practice, trial, error, bruises to get rid of my own ignorance so to speak 🙂
