  • Skillful Action in the AoW

    Skillful action in the AoW is about seeing the energy in a system, seeing that all the elements are interconnected. It's about not taking the predictable or habitual line of action, but rather to look for small ways the energy that exists and cant't be fundamentally changed can be even slightly directed or shaped. Since the ground is always changing, one looks for what is emerging rather than holding on to descriptions or insights from the past. Thus one can be ready to seize upon opportunities that arise unexpectedly, and to do so with actions surprising to others that therefore can open up the situation and build stronger bonds upon which one can take future, even more effective action.
