ATTITUDE & POSTURE

Two important aspects neglected by most martial artists are ATTITUDE & POSTURE....and each influences the other once you come to realize and sense this,but it takes a lot of effort.....we tend to like everything easy and comfortable.....we want to stand and sit easily and have nice attitudes and moods,etc. but few of us really know how to do this..... POSTURE IS THE WAY WE STAND, SIT, WALK, SLEEP, AND BEND AND MOVE, a whole series of motions....and ATTITUDE is how we approach life and ourselves and others and so on.....certain attitudes lead to specific postures and we become locked into these......our educational, social, political, and religious systems all generate attitudes and control us and also make us adopt certain postures in life....we are locked into these formats and tend to follow them like sheep until the day we die.....Of course, there is more to this that what is being described here........Rigid attitudes and even lax ones can place us into postures we do not want and certain postures reinforce these attitudes.....How do drink your coffee, your tea, and where and when....how do you handle your wallet and drive your car? See your habitual postures and attitudes when doing these simple things and you may get an indication of what is being discussed here....Good luck....
