Sorry, I meant to address your post in my last one, then I got all esoteric.
Which beats my first draft all to hell, it was preachy.
OK, that said...
Kudos for a very insightful response.
Not a bulls-eye but you're hitting the target in the circle.
The first paragraph, close. However both are principles, both principles require action.
The second part, well...
No, you don't use your "hip". You use your "hips". Most folks have two of them.
A little experiment for you...
Try to move your body center, your waist, without moving your hips.
Can't do it? Neither can I.
My advice, rethink the "separation of powers" you have set for yourself.
It's not entirely incorrect, however thinking that way so rigidly is limiting your view of the situation.
Relax your mind, your body and most especially your hips and waist.
Move through the form v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y a few dozen times, at least.
Don't put any "oomph" into it, at all, anywhere. No, zero, zilch on the fajin, silk reel throughout.
Make your upper body as light and loose as you can, keep the middle flexible and the lower heavy and rooted (where have we heard that before?).
Which all basically boils down to, "Don't put an "oomph" into it" (I'm detecting a pattern in my thinking, sorry).
I'm not poking fun at you, I'm actually poking fun at me.
Because I'm wishing someone, anyone!, would have taken the one on one time to get me to ACTUALLY do the form like that, not just in my own head but in reality, a long, long time before I finally did.
I'm not blaming anyone but myself though.
I heard the words and I had convinced myself I knew what they meant.
But it took a Goddess amongst women to make me understand that as much as I thought I was doing that, I wasn't.
A shout out to Chen Juan. She saw me making simple, and I really should have known better, mistakes while I was in Chen Zhenglei's class at the first Symposium and she took the time to approach me, get to know me, and correct me.
That's one of the biggest favors anyone has ever done for me.
Back to business...
I've already gone too far here to stay in my "make them figure it out themselves" mode.
I'm gone now.
