Discuss


I've had this on my studio wall ever since I found it on a pole at the Woodford Folk Festival, many years ago. It reminds me that good thoughts come from everywhere and to be vigilant about where to find ideas. Nothing slack about this code:

- There is always a right place and a right time.
- Respect the power of the line and be aware of effects on others and surroundings.
- Things don't come half-balanced.
- As a slackliner your focus brings you much awareness and power.
- First foster your awareness within, then expand to all. When expanding out never lose the essential awareness within.
- Aways come back to the awareness within.
- Keep your head up and look forward, while always remaining in this present.
- Relaxation is to allow yourself to come to a more malleable state, allowing natural intelligence to flow through you.
- In a relaxed focus, reflexes are sharpened and agility is born organically.
- Actions move with the speed of thought.
- Your thoughts create your reality.
- Strength does not come from physical power. It comes from indominable will!
- Balance is a state: experience it.
- To step into the thread of balance is to step into alignment with what is.
- In the state of balance there comes evolution!

I particularly like that. Very smart stuff.
Thanks for this, now I have two great manifestoes for the wall from you, Duck. (The other being Sr. Corita Kent's rules.)
