"Learning - is the process of mobilizing ourselves for action. If you don't make the process light and easy and comfortable, you become stiff; you become old, senile and decrepit."
If you've had a slow morning getting out of bed or if getting out of a chair or car isn't exactly springy for you, you know that feeling. The feeling of not being together and co-ordinated and whole. And that isn't an easy thing.
Moshe didn't stop at the physical, though. He said,
"We stop using the most important part of our being - the ability to recover, the ability to heal ourself, the ability to adjust ourself to the changing world around us."
He was telling us how we are an interconnected system and anything that affects us physically affects us at every other realm - emotional, mental, behavioral. And he was a master at showing us how we can make those far reaching, dreamlike changes to our life simply by accessing our body in a particular kind of way.
What amazes me is that he did that from the very first day of the training. His Amherst training was one of his seminal trainings taught in the United States in a basketball stadium to 235 people.
