“If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” – Mark Twain
Yesterday’s email on “Fear of Fall-ure raised quite a stir. Some people wrote to ask how a person can fall down on purpose and not hurt himself.
The answer is simple: Observe the cat.
Did you know that cats have either fallen or been thrown out of buildings much higher than the roof of your house. And the cat walked away unharmed. No injuries. About the only negative that can happen is a chipped tooth.
Now, this doesn’t explain why some cats climb trees and stay put until the fire truck comes to the rescue. Perhaps the cat just wanted a little theatre – a little Theatre of the Mind – and we humans fell for it – freaking out, calling in the rescue team. What if we just left the cat alone and gave it no audience?
Anyway, in terms of other things you can learn from a cat – the list is long indeed. Yet, most things you can learn fall under the banner of physical and mental relaxation.
Cats don’t get hurt when they fall because they are physically and mentally relaxed. Instead of fighting the fall, instead of going against the wind, they become one with it and melt into space. This allows the cat to land softly. So softly that it walks away unharmed.
Again, without a physician’s approval – or proper instruction in falling, I’m not suggesting you begin a program this very moment. For now, entertain the idea that “YES” you can fall and not get hurt. And if you deliberately practice falling, you lose your fear of it – and you learn to relax your mind-body to a new level of experience.
Today I worked on falling forward, backward, sideways and while reading a book. That’s right. I held a book in front of my face. I began to read and then I fell down, as if pushed from an unseen person. I think the falls I did with a book before my eyes were my very best. They felt “normal.”
When I finished with my falling drills, I didn’t have to tell myself to relax my mind and body before doing Theatre of the Mind. I was already relaxed. Now, all I needed to do was breathe deeply, picture the good things in life and emotionalize them.
This is what I teach you to do in great detail in my all new program Maxwell Maltz’s Theatre of the Mind, produced by Nightingale-Conant. Make sure you claim your copy of this program NOW.
No, it’s is NOT the same as the DVD I created on the subject. Nor is the same as any other Psycho-Cybernetics material ever produced.
Essentially, it’s Quantum Pscyho-Cyb. If you loved the writing and teachings of Dr. Maxwell Maltz, then you’re going to go ape over what I reveal to you in this program. And I guarantee you one thing, Dr. Maltz is looking at this program from the heavens and saying, “Well done, my friend. Very well done.”
