Sunday 28 November 2010

Posted by The Coach on November 27th, 2010

Question: Why is your teaching so purely psychological? There is no cosmology, no theology, no ethics, no aesthetics, no sociology, no political science, not even hygiene. Why do you concentrate only on the mind and its workings?

Answer: For a very simple reason, Sir. If the thinker can understand himself, then the whole problem is solved. Then he is creation, he is reality; and then what he does will not be antisocial. Virtue is not an end in itself; virtue brings freedom, and there can be freedom only when the thinker, which is the mind, ceases. That is why one has to understand the process of the mind, the ‘I’, the bundle of desires that create the ‘I’, my property, my wife, my ideas, my God. Surely it is because the thinker is so confused that his actions are confused; it is because the thinker is confused that he seeks reality, order, peace. Because the thinker is confused, ignorant, he wants knowledge; and because the thinker is in contradiction, in conflict, he pursues ethics to control, to guide, to support him. So, if I can understand myself, the thinker, then the whole problem is solved, is it not? Collected Works of J. Krishnamurti, Vol IV. 1948 6th Public Talk, Bombay.

    You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

    BAM!!

    Warm up:
    Oly lifting all day

    Then:
    5 RFT of:
    2 x 16kg kb’s on shore
    Farmer carry in the water to about chest/neck height
    10 x thrusters(being sure to submerge head under)
    Kb’s farmer carry out, drop at shore
    10 x 16pound sledge smashes into sand
    Run 25m
    10 x burpee with 2 lunges after each rep
    Run 25m back to shore
    Time = 16.48min.

    Finisher
    5 x 15 hand release push ups and kb movements experimentation in water at different heights

    *The purpose of this is to change breathing patterns and work under different pressures and different environments. This worked quite well and was fun! Challenge the mind, work hard under different conditions, be forced to perform when venturing into the unknown. If we always do the same and expect the same results, our ideologies are perhaps mid aligned… In saying this fundamentals are always present… Will be experimenting a lot over summer…

    It was so much fun doing thrusters in the water 🙂

    The looks we got from people on the beach, and there was a lot was priceless. Caught a few wondering past giving the KB’s a pick up to see how heavy they were.

    Me as above with 8KB = 16.36
    + 5 x 10 Hand Release Push ups
    Followed by lots of swimming with Bella
