Domišljija je vse

Dragi bralci, preljube bralke,

se spomnite prispevka, v katerem smo govorili, da klopi niso samo za sedenje? Parkourovec Tim ‘Livewire’ Shieff gre še korak (ali premet ali salto?) naprej in nam v videu Imagination is Everything pokaže, kako lahko z malo domišljije to, kar nam je bilo dano – naše telo in svojo neposredno okolico – uporabimo za ustvarjanje malih (vadbenih) čudežev:

You’ve got four limbs: two arms, two legs, your feet, your hands – and what are you using them for? To walk to the train station or to type on the keyboard. You’ve got all this potential and you’re not using it. So, what we’re doing is we’re taking these [looks at his arms and legs] and we say: ‘I wonder what I can come up with today with what I’ve been given.’  That’s it – it’s really respecting that body more than most people. (…) It’s not about being reckless, about doing the most dangerous thing, it’s about  doing it with the respect to the environment, with respect to the people around you. (…) It’s that control of the mind  – I’m physically able here [on the ground], why can’t I do it in this situation [two stories higher]? (…) It has taught me to respect things more, rather than being ‘Ah, this is bad, this is a problem in my life’; OK, that’s what I’m given, get on with it. You know, I’ve got this wall here – what can I do with it? (…) I wanted to do this move, but I can’t, so I’ll come up with something else. It’s just that positive mind set. If you can have that in life – really, it can change everything.  

Lepa nadgradnja Shieffovih misli pa je govor njegovega parkourovskega kamerada Daniela Ilebaca v filmčku Choose not to Fall, v katerem izpostavi, kako pomembna je osredotočenost na tukaj-in-zdaj ter trdna odločenost, da ti ne bo spodletelo:

The adventure is not knowing what’s going to happen next. It’s accepting that you don’t have control of the future, that you only have control of the ‘now’, make the most of now, so every step that I take is not calculated or thought of, it’s just – I put my body in that position and I adapt to it. When you think ahead in the future, it prevents you from being in the moment – now – only when you’re present in the moment, are you able to do what’s important (…) You might not have tomorrow, y’know what I mean? (…) I don’t do it to show off, I do it maybe to wake someone up, for them to ask the question ‘Why are you doing this?’ and that gives me then the opportunity to speak to them and tell them the reason why I do this. And one of my aims is to help people to realize that parkour is so powerul that it can change people’s lives. I’ve found what we’re looking for through parkour – which is our relationship with God (…) Confidence isn’t gained over time of practice, it’s gained when you realize that you choose your path, when you choose not to fall – just that look of life helps me to be more free and myself. (…) If you’re afraid to fall, you’ll fall because you’re afraid. Everything is choice. 

Pa še banda v akciji:

 

For the past few months I’ve just been thinking about how grateful I am to be a part of this community, because it’s rare for a generation to come across something so pure and true. Through the practice I have been gifted with relationships and life changing moments that I may not have experienced otherwise.
Cherish today and the people around you.
– Daniel

Kot nekomu, ki ni ravno (khm) medmišično koordiniran, so tovrstne parkourovske vragolije še posebej fascinantne, še zlasti pa naravna/spontana duhovnost, ki jih prežema. Ljudje si duhovnost pogosto predstavljajo kot nek ezoterični la-la, kot nekaj, kar je povsem ločeno od tega sveta, kot “povsem Drugo”. Pa ni tako: pristna duhovnost je najbolj praktična stvar na svetu – je biti spojen s svetom v tukaj-in-zdaj. Kot je rekel Josef Beuysa:

»Misterij se dogaja na glavni postaji«

Ali z besedami Willigisa Jägra:

V skakanju z rolkami ali jadranju s padalom tiči potencialno prav toliko religioznosti kot v bogoslužju. (…) »Religija je naše življenje in izvrševanje življenja je prava religija.«


Lepe praznike vam želim in pa –

mir z vami! 😉

Vaš S.

  1. Moka pravi:

    Tole skakanje zgleda nekako tako kot balet – čist ‘na izi’ deluje vse skupaj, hkrati pa veš, da temu še zdaleč ni tako… Meni se kar smilijo dlani, ko se tip ‘prilepi’ na zid.

  2. […] enem od prejšnjih prispevkov poučili, da klopi niso samo za sedenje (še več, videli smo, da je z malo domišljije ves svet lahko vaša telovadnica), pa bi lahko kdo potarnal, da to nemara res drži v toplejših […]

  3. […] To je seveda le en primer (dva kratko-sladka sem objavil v nedavnem prispevku o sklecah in jih bom v prihodnje objavil še več), ki pa le kaže osnovno idejo v ozadju mojega prispevka (in brloga nasploh): z malo volje in truda lahko vadite v (skorajda) vse okoliščinah, v katerih se znajdete. Ne pozabite: domišljija je vse! […]
