Default Simple Sunday IX - Reprise

In January of 2011 I began a series about simplicity. This was the ninth 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.

Barrett,

In reading your earlier post that you referenced I noticed that you said (and actually you regularly say) that you have failed in your attempts to teach SC. I am not sure why you continue to say it with such finality. I too found ideomotion by accident years ago by playing with a few ideas on a client during a period of occupational depression. I hadn't read or heard of anyone using this strange motion for anything therapeutic and consequently I just sort of let it go because it was odd, I wasn't sure if it actually was valuable.
It is thanks to reading your work that I was willing to explore ideomotion again and learn to wait/hold longer. I learned how to communicate in a simplistic way (mainly because I am still learning about it) how this motion we are seeing is actually always present within and its visible expression can be seen as a direct experience of one's instinctual movement toward greater ease. Wow, said the client. That's my body moving, not you? Yes. You mean that I have some locus of control on this pain I have been feeling? Yes. And so on.
So if you call that a failure...And I've never met you.

zendogg,

You make an excellent point. In addition, you identify yourself as unusual - and I mean that in a good way.

My failure is a relative thing, and I suppose I feel it more acutely than those in the choir.

Thanks for pointing this out, again.

From the original thread:

Quote:
Law Nine: Some things can never be made simple.
I read recently that whether something is seen as simple or complex is a matter of perspective - and, depending upon our understanding, perspectives change.

Anybody have an example?

During the early days of my running mechanics discussions over at Supertraining, Jon Haddan noted the following, which I've used ever since:

"In an effort to fly, intelligent people carefully observed and tried to mimic the actions of birds. It certainly made sense from observing flight to think that the downward flapping of flexible wings created a downward vertical force that was essential (and the only way) to create a vertical lift and flight."

I have the sense that a good teacher (which means that they're a good storyteller) will be able to impose a perspective.

Actually, I've seen this happen.
