To shift the attention is such a big feature of tai chi. Holding on to a view is detrimental to change. The tai chi practitioner seeks not to be, ultimately, the same person you were when you began the day’s practice. Every practice session ends with you being a different person, or at least feeling differently from when you first began … Having a little more knowledge and ability than before. Every practice adds another piece of the puzzle until many practice sessions accumulate new knowledge and fresh clarity.
