The dislocation of your faculty of perception

If you are interested in the "hidden" dimensions of Strength training. Buckle your seat belts, here it is in 90 seconds:

Lifting weights: To call it lifting weights is to already be distracted. Your mind is already divided and lost.



The real discipline is called strength training. The accessory may indeed be weights. And, the accessory might be your body, bands, water or any other form of resistance. The point is the dislocation of your faculty of perception. Read that a few times. Real strength is the ability to open and broaden the aperture of perception such that perception is not longer exclusively tethered to your body-mind. Until you know this strength, you know next to nothing about strength training. To my point of you being intimate with your weakness and vulnerability. He is steering your minds in an all important direction. Take note, straighten your spine, stop wasting your life and attune to a facility of presence that you MUST become. True strength, the real heart my friends, is powerfully present in the most painful, vulnerable and humble of positions. If you resist this, your faculty of perception will remain firmly encased in a limited vehicle that will by necessity betray the very purpose of our existence.
