Beautiful awareness.....

This is true so often for me, in so many places in my life. I'll be passing this along to my systema students, as well.

The task I'm doing now would probably go more smoothly if I thought about how best to do it. But if I thought about how best to do it that would create a pause in my freneticnesss, and I don't want a pause in my freneticness because I don't want to think.

Thinking about this task I'm doing might be okay or even good, but once I pause and think, many other things I don't want to think about might flood in, so I'll just keep moving and making mistakes, which can be usefully distracting
