A view from the above. Spritual techinique from the hellenisitic period for the here and now. Also mistakenly call an emperor a king.

WHAT IS THE VIEW FROM ABOVE?

We know that by reframing a problem, you have to restructure yourself, and new patterns of solutions become manifest in this restructuring. Some people even go so far as to think about their situation from a third-person perspective to trigger insights, or they imagine being someone or something else entirely.

A practice you can do in real-time to help you expand your frontiers your consciousness and give you a new way to see yourself and the others around you is called a "View from Above."

This was a technique developed by the Stoics around the time of the Hellenistic period. You can think of the Stoics as the first branch of philosophers that viewed materialism, including the desires and ego that go along with the unbridled emotions the chase for wealth brings as an obstacle to connection. How do you conceptualize this practice?

Imagine you are behind a camera and looking at yourself from the side, so you could be sitting, standing, or doing your daily routine, perhaps drinking coffee. Then you take the cam above you, and you can see yourself and the home you are in now you are drinking coffee, but you can see the other members of your household. Your pet is sleeping, your friends or partner getting ready for their day. You take the camera up even further and see your entire housing community; now, you can see your neighbors and strangers moving. The camera goes even higher, and now you see your whole city, higher still and now state, the country, the planet, the galaxy. All the while, you are there drinking your coffee.

What you might find at first is a severe feeling of being disconnected at first, but then you find that you are actually connected to a more significant cycle of action and interactions. And people who do this regularly feel a loss of anxiety, worry, and frustration about current problems because the perspective from above sometimes reveals that those problems are a minor part of a bigger picture. So give it a go and see if it does the same for you as it's done for others.

Flow State Convo 2
What do you need to bake a good cake and other analogies about the flow state and a deeper dive into the conditions necessary and the order they should go.

How can you determine good technique when it comes to fitness, and what concepts can we borrow from art to help us clarify our understanding of what to aim for when it comes to optimal movement? In other words, how can we discern the good from the bad?

There can be an almost innumerable amount of skills you can acquire when it comes to working out, given the wide range of tools, styles, and methods of exercising. So it might be helpful to develop a mental framing that will give you insight into how to know if what you are doing is ideal.

And we can use art as an analogy to help you understand the difference between good and bad movement, particularly if you are training yourself. So why is this important? This will help facilitate your improvement of movement and speed up your ability to create better form at any given stage of your learning. And much like art, it has to do with lines and shapes.

Now let's dive a little deeper and select the type of art that would best serve our analogy by eliminating a niche of art right off the bat. And while we are doing this, see if you can find parallels between the abstract and the straightforward, which exist in art and movement.

There is an abstract style in art in which whether something is a good painting or a bad painting is entirely subjective. So if you go to an abstract art exhibit, there may be a piece that looks like a smattering of incoherent patterns that don't depict anything accurately but nevertheless evoke emotion. If you are familiar with Jackson Pollack's work, you can understand what this means.

Abstraction also crosses over into other more physical art forms. In the example of dance, you can watch a contemporary piece where the movements are chaotic, jerky, or don't flow to the music. This might be on the choreographer's vision of what they are trying to get across and the emotion they are trying to evoke. In other words, it's entirely subjective in both examples.

This is not true if we are talking about a painter who is meant to be depicting something directly in front of them. So, let's suppose the artist is intended to draw a wooden chair. In that case, it cannot be wholly subjective because the artist could draw the object so inaccurately that you would have no idea what the object is. But, on the other hand, they could draw it with such detail that you couldn't possibly mistake it for anything other than what it is. Some can even do it so well that you would think you were looking at a photograph.

In dance, if you take classical ballet, that has its roots in a traditional method. You would clearly see the musicality of the piece, and if you had a magic remote to pause a live performance, you would see clear lines of the legs, spine, and arms. And on another level, you would see dancers who can do this while leaping thru the air or balancing on the point of one foot.

It's in this second example of objective art is where we will draw upon our movement analogy. When it comes to, for example, doing a bodyweight workout out, yoga, or swinging a macebell, there are clear lines of action that will separate strong movement from weak movement.

So we are not talking about the subjective experience of movement, which can sometimes be focused on your levels of distress or exertion, whether it be breathing or focus. However, if you watch a person moving in any modality: barbells, yoga, Pilates, kettlebells, etc. who have a clear understanding of the lines they are creating with their spines, arms, and legs and the relationship to the tool they are using, which in some cases can be your body and other times can be something you wield with your hands you will say something to the effect of "wow that person is a beast," or it will have an impact on your own nervous system where something in them is singing to something in you, particularly if it's a movement pattern you want to master.

Hopefully, by leaning more into being a movement realist, it can help you improve faster. But, as always, practice with intention; you will be able to figure it out sooner rather than later.

EFFORT VS. EFFORTLESSNESS.
Effortlessness via the flow state would be better served as being conceptualized as maximum embodiment and not maximum effort. While the metabolic energy you are exuding might be off the charts, it will not be perceived that way. It will also not feel that way because everything is easy to execute. All your moves are perfect, and your performance of what you are doing will cross into virtuosity. There are no hangups, no doubt, and the focus is not on effort but solely on what you are doing until you ultimately become one with it. Not only that, but your decision-making skills merge in real-time with this ability to execute flawless action. This deep affordance might be because your awareness, movement, and choices become one.

Whereas maximum effort may appear incredibly active on the surface, however in actuality, it is not. This is because your awareness which could also be thought of as unconscious pattern recognition, is switched off and passive. What is impressive is that this unconscious pattern recognition is so powerful that it picks up on cues and information in your environment, resulting in spontaneous implicit learning. An example? You know exactly how to walk through a busy city without bumping into strangers. You don't have to consciously track the number of steps you are taking or how you should take them.

A full embodiment will not be achieved if too much emphasis is placed on effort. Furthermore, you will disable your ability to transcend into the flow state if you do this because you will be locked and blocked.

The ability to achieve this experience of effortless perfection that comes with the flow state will be unavailable for you to access if you cannot fully integrate the agent and the arena. In other words, you have to become completely absorbed with your actions and the environment around you to step out of your normal cognition and learning limitations. This is because the part of you that knows isn't the part of you that can do. If any part of you is distracted from the totality of the movement, you may never transcend from effort to embodiment to flow.
