in the external world, we move in different spaces – home, outside, school,
work, in between places – we simply move, and of course we also act while
moving. At the same time there are many
situations in which we witness: we witness the outer world – people, nature,
similar also in our inner world – each of us can experience her/himself
thinking/feeling/doing something: "I feel lonely", "I feel
happy"; and also can notice her/himself knowing
that he feels lonely, i.e., witnessing her/himself.
And as me,
so is the other. It is usually the total opposite from what we do
instinctively: our look is towards the outside.
frame of Authentic Movement based on this acknowledgment of both mover and witness.
It enables me experiencing the present moment vividly and in full awareness.
That, of course, demands an on-going practicing, It doesn’t happen tomorrow
morning.. We all have our habits and instincts from
the past, from society etc. – for good and for bad; yet, as human beings we`re
the only creature that has the possibility to develop freedom and choice;
hence, by being aware through this method to our own present experience – in
thoughts, in emotions, in will impulses – we develop the ability to recognize
our motivations, and hence to choose our thoughts and actions, as well as our
responses to daily situations and to life events.
Mainly, It is about individuality. Knowing myself through this
practice, and getting know a bit about the other trough this practice, goes
through totally subjective experiences.
"subjective experiences" It means that every experience that I have –
is my experience, the filter is only me – my senses, my opinions, my
judgments, my past, my taste… everything!
acknowledgment open a new channel to myself and to the
other, for any other individual has her/his own subjective experiences. By
living that, we can meet from a different point. By living that, I can witness
my thoughts, my emotions and my doings with acceptance that allows me to choose
to change them when I realize that this is my responsibility.
