Zero Point

 

 

The Zero Point is a point of silence, it is an apparent «stop» or time of silence within the movement. Like in respiration, there is a «stop» between the breathing in and the breathing out; like in music, there is a time of silence between each note,; like in a text, there is a blank, a void between the letters, between the words....

 

 

Seen from outside, it is a point of physical and mental immobility...nothing happens....apparently....

Lived from inside, in this «stop» off time, in this silence, by the extrem relaxed attention, the Sight is Direct, instantaneously, it perceives, feels, sees, undertsands the present reality....it is a Consciousness in the space, in the event which is there, just around ourself....and not an interiorized look, absent to the life....

At the same time, in a sudden manner, this Direct Knowledge frees the Force to act....the action is done all alone, it stems spontaneoulsly...

 

 

« There is a very precise attitude of the body which makes that at this very moment, your brain is capable to take a decision, it is a decision which is free, it means that it is not linked to the past. There is a state of the body where we perceive completely what is around, and there, we can decide...We are not pushed by a past to build future. The ZERO POINT is there, it is the space which leads the movement.» Christian

 

"Everything is a carrier of a piece of information. The worst as well as the best. The energy, through its circulation in the events, which one calls its movement, accumulates some data at all levels (thoughts, consciousness, emotions…) until the point where this combination produces a mental and physical “state of immobilization” that one calls “the zero point”. From this state of immobility, a comprehension of the movement is born. Then one of the intelligences of the body intervenes to decide on the future orientation of the action." the movement of energy Walking 13

Practice :

 

« swaying of the elephants »

 

Start of the position: the body standing up, relaxed, feet slightly apart, well rooted to the ground, while the fontanelle is pushed towards the top...

 

« When you work in energy, you place your weight completely on one leg and then, you go on the other leg. Pass the entire weight from one leg to the other, it is what is called: « swaying of the elephants ». It is a passing of liquids which creates a very great intellectual peacefulness. What is peculiar to Direct Way, is that you realize that in the movement of transfer of liquids, there is a very particular moment where there is a silence that I call the « Zero Point ». And it is only in this Zero Point that the brain has the capacity to find a solution to implement, otherwise, it is still running behind something. Thus, every movements of the Direct Way focus on this Zero Point. When we are in the Zero Point : everything is possible, nothing is predetermined.» Christian

 

« The body of the young White spouted out as a spring in front of them. He showed them through his body how to go out of the prison of the event by a supreme attention which he names “ the zero point”…

- This attitude of the spirit and the body provides freedom to the brain. You have then the perception of the totality of the possibilities contained in the space… You cease following what is “old”… You have the “new” possible… and the brain new and fresh.

…. That gives as well to your body an immense energy which is projected all by itself without the effort of your muscles and of your will.

They did not really understand but the pirouetting body of the young White was the testimony of the truth of his words.

Thus they tried to listen and to understand with their body. It is what he has asked them.

- Leave your spirit in the changing room… Use the power of the body which can connect you as much to the Earth than to the Heaven.»Tiger Man 33
