Rules of Mind
These are two of the four rules of coordinating mind and body.
Think of (keep) your one point .... thereby extend ki.
Established the continuity of simultaneously sensing outwardly and inwardly.
You can't have expansion without a source, and you cannot have contraction without a point the contraction is happening towards.
Things I noticed
I can think of my one point easily without extending ki, but this just thinking of it in an abstract way,
like checking that it feels the same as I remember it did before.
If I subject myself to that point, and everything else around me, I can 'project my presence'.
If I make myself the subject of my centre ...
I am where my one point is.
If I move, everything around me moves, like in an immersive computer game.
Obeying rules of body leads to conforming to the Rules of Mind
The Light Posture rule - I notice my body adjusts 'bolt upright' … with weight underside
The Relax Completely rule - I feel relaxed enough that I can confidently make my presence felt physically.
