Investing in a loss includes many meanings; one of these constitutes the very key to the correct process of deep learning. All, except perhaps those under the third force of the sun, we begin an inner journey to get something: skill in combat, better health, more self-esteem and respect for others, powers paranormal, etc. It is normal; the ego continually wonders how the practice can increase its chances of survival, how it can in this way realize "itself" and be loved by all, how it can develop paranormal abilities to be "more" than others. However to a certain point of practice, supported by the profound part that begins to awaken and by the genuine masters, inner guides, superior forces, it is necessary to dismantle this ego process and aim directly at inner development, leaving the benefits of the practice as collateral, without paying too much attention to it .
The opponent uses all his external strength and speed; in response, the practitioner can use his own and try to immediately get an ego victory over the opponent.
All of Zheng Manqing learning will thus be centered on the development and on how to make the most of physical strength and speed, to achieve "victories" today. Or he can invest at a loss, with a strong connection to the deep and a strong intention can continue to try to generate deep answers and not to react superficially, reactivating the superficial mind. Through the interaction between awareness and intention, in the perspective of failure, deep intelligence can gradually develop. Abandoning oneself for a long time to the "external" defeat and to the correct inner investment, finally free from the ego that wants everything and immediately, the deep part, first, and the Spirit, afterward, will be able to express itself, practically speaking, without any limit.
"If you want to be or appear good at what you do, simply continue to perform (successfully) what you already know how to do, if you want to go deeper, continue, connected with the deep part, to look for something that is outside your reach" Patrick A. Kelly free referenced by heart
