Viewer Mail--Op Ed
To be absolutely frank with you, when I happened to
come across your web site, I was apprehensive about reading any of the content. However
after taking the time to examine your web site critically, I have come to the conclusion
that your ideas are worthy of further exploration. I have been attempting to play golf
well for some time now and while I have made some measurable improvement, the swing has
always been a mystery to me, so very elusive. The article on the illusions of golf has given me food for thought
and the article on Mushin was very
insightful. I now realize that in order for me to improve I have to let it happen, let my
swing happen without clogging my MIND with the mechanics of the swing. In reading the
articles, I also can realize that my enthusiasm can be a hindrance to success as well,
still the mind and let it happen.
Thank you L.F. Realizing the goof within is an important first step for any golfer wishing to do battle with the Self. Keep close the notions of Waning and Witnessing and you may find that breakthrough and lucidity were with you all along.
This letter gave me that "tingling Harvey Penick feeling." It really is the greatest reward!
