Hi Monica,

Nice movement.

1. Feel free, because structure determines behavior (and some structures
are more useful than others)

2. The processes of learning generate what we perceive as resistance to
change (or: a moving body under no force will keep on moving in a
straight line)

3. .. 'is there a teaching no master ever taught before?' Nansen said:
'Yes there is.' 'What is it?' Nansen replied: 'it is not mind, it is not
Buddha, it is not things'.

Mumon's Poem:

Nansen was too kind and lost his treasure.
Truly, words have no power.
Even though the mountain becomes the sea,
Words cannot open another's mind'. (Paul Reps - Zen Flesh, Zen Bones)

Or creahator?

Best of luck
