Disinformation…

Tired of disinformation? The vision is to alter the direction of this blog and present some clear hints, tips and suggestions for training (and life).  It will be achieved by way of snapshot glimpses of the inner workings of DC’s mind and the goal will be to present short articles.

today; luk sau, straights, big punch, drop step and close.

today i stressed the importance of language. language can be manipulated to change the way we perceive reality. if i say “I feel pain”; we empower the sensation that we commonly associate with ‘pain’ and make it particular to ourselves. if however i say “there is pain”, i am disassociating it from my notion of ‘self’.  I then become an objective observer to the pain, rather than its complacent sufferer.

For more; see any of the language books written by Stephen Pinker.
