“Pure Energy” and “Don’t Move”

by bruce.schaub on 2014/04/24

Here is a pretty good example of the power of yin yang separation. Because there is a lot of power involved you can see (and feel) the difference very clearly. The video is of me operating a backhoe briefly. First I operate the backhoe arm without stabilizing the machine. The tractor tosses wildly and much of the power of the arm is lost. This is called energy being “dispersed”. Then I stabilize the machine and operate the arm. The power is greatly increased. This is called energy being “clear” and or “pure”. The difference in power extremely easy to feel, and I think is quite visually apparent. It is the direct result of the machine “not moving” while the arm is operated and moves freely (yin yang separation)

That’s an excellent video of you on the backhoe! I think the energy is the same, just where it goes is different.
