How do we move a big mountain.
One bucket at a time, and we make our moves strategically.
Similarly, when our Uke hold our hands, tightly. The method to unbalance them is not big movements, but small ones. It is always the small and subtle movements that brings about big changes.
The irony is that we are always caught up in the furry of drama. Like how intense our Uke looked, how their seemingly aggressive face, brings up a certain tension in us. how their firm and apparently unrelenting grip exhibited our inability to move them. We are looking at the ‘big’ picture, whereas we need to look at the sublime. The devil, is after all in the detail.
So think about how our uke holds us, the tension of the fingers, the pores, the sinew, which all contributed to the totality of the grip. We only need to focus on our small movement, and how our centre gravitates in relation to our little fingers, our nails, the bend of our wrists, our spine, the vertebrae, all comes into play to keep us balance, and helps us unbalance our uke. There is so much little things that we can do, other than to look at the face of our uke, and get caught in the act.
Think small, move big.
