I’ve added an eighth principle for my practice and for teaching the game: Honesty. You can’t fake your way through the exercises to the game. If you don’t understand and don’t ask: the answer you get will be the result of the effort; in other words Karma! If you are not certain of the “feel” of it and don’t seek clarification and “concretization”, you will take a long time to get it. The solution: be honest, ask if you don’t understand, accept that you do not yet know, and don’t tear up the carpet with your toenails claiming to be in balance! (The real solution is to go back to the principles).
