In our tai chi school we encourage people to avoid fixity.
There are no techniques, no preset responses. We can do things in any number of ways.
Some methods work better than others. And all have ramifications and consequences.
There is not one fixed way at the exclusion of all others.
Students learn to appreciate that they are thinking within a box. Instead of 'thinking outside the box' they realise that there is no box.
Our conditioning limits us.
Let your mind open and your consciousness expand. Embrace what is.
