To Touch the Zone

This is going to be a hard article to comprehend if you’ve never been in the “zone”. The zone being, that momentary lapse out of all your mental problems, restraints, and any and all troubles you might have weighing you down. Now while this zone may be nigh on impossible to reach while you have these burdens, its not impossible, and on the bright side, afterwards you will not really care that much about them. You must realize that though they have their place, they are not supposed to keep you from experiencing life. If you have never been in the zone, then I suggest you try to be more of yourself, to be 100% legit in who you are. That though is only one part, the prologue if you will. You then have to be (This is all in the traceurs sense) at the end stages of your warm up. The point in which your muscles have become warm and your moving into the actual session. This point is crucial, the point where your increasing rise in energy injection stales out and you ride a medium wave of energy through your normal session. What needs to be done is to let your body continue to inject yourself with energy, this is the hard part, because to do so is to, in essence, let the primal part of you out of its cage. Most people just cant do this, cant let themselves be truly free. In these self made prisons of the mind they are in, they are victims of their own disregard. This is also the hardest part to describe, even though you’re in the most “living in the moment” you can ever be. I have not perfected getting into this zone, and I probably will spend the rest of my life trying to integrate the zone into my whole being, to have those energy waves be behind me in all hours and to be relatively fearless.

To have an example, although this one is more of the over hype and not being grounded nature. Lets say  you just got your 1st ever Kong down over a significant gap, when you land your body is still rolling on that energy wave, and to continue to ride it you must just stay in motion and keep doing the jump at least three times. If you even sit down for a few, you will lose it, but if you keep moving and just do a route, or parcours, then you can ride that wave for however long you keep your mind in your heart and not distracting yourself in your two upper brains, especially the neo cortex.

I will probably write more on this later after I study it a bit more, but this state of being is highly volatile and can easily go up or down, up is injury, down is disappointment.
