When we are studying Practical method under Master Chen consistently enough, we are learning. Somehow there is a process, not within our realm of perception, where something is happening. As this process continues, we like to do a lot of things around and “about” it. We like to imagine that all this activity helps.
When the process where there is something happening begins to mature, and begins to bear fruit – and since it occurs largely without us knowing what happened – we like to feel that all our activity around and “about” it is the reason. And then we might feel very relieved that we did all this activity.
