Default Simple Sunday III - Reprise

In January of 2011 I began a series about simplicity. this was the third one.

Eighteen months later I’d like to run this again each Sunday, reviewing what’s in each thread and revisiting the subject and “laws” as indicated.

Now I have a much larger readership, and I know you’ll help this subject grow.

Here I wrote: “I have a sense that beneath the surface of everyone there is something surprising, unexpected, compelling, interesting, unfamiliar and unpredictable. Because this thing is uniquely expressed I can’t hope to control it but only to observe and bear witness. Always, its power to affect the present experience of another fascinates me.”
Maybe it's me but this sounds like what the best Yoga teacher would do as well? This is the kind of thing I struggle to have be primary in every class that I teach, and like you say sometimes, I fail at this regularly.

I am currently reading this book. One thing it talked about was the problem with limitless. Limitless takes the possibility for creativity away. It is only by applying, sometimes completely arbitrarily, limitation within which to be creative can we make any progress.

I think with the availability of knowledge , techniques, and tricks that we have today we risk losing our ability to be creative. Surely simplicity and creativity go hand in hand?

Thanks Byron.

I would say that the difference between the speculation I make and that of the yoga teachers is that one involves elves and faries science and one does confine itself to that.

If, as is said, simplicity lies on the far side of complexity, creativity will certainly be part of it. Simplistic is what I call another word for dumbing-down.

For five weeks beginning here I wrote about our natural need for novelty.

Don’t you think that approaching another that has a complex problem with a simple method is part of that?

So perhaps we can conclude this:

When it comes to a method of for the complex process we call pain something simple is, much of the time. novel enough to generate change.

I am not sure why this bothered me. I took the week to think about it.

I am still a Yoga teacher, with all the faults of that profession. I would like to work toward an ideal of the profession. Whether I will be successful or not remains to be seen.

I have also seen enough Chiro's & MFR people get offended in other discussions so I would like to rephrase my comment and see if it evokes a different response.

Maybe it's me but this sounds like what the best Yoga teacher should do as well?
And maybe I looked into this too far and thought about it too much.
