It is a long-running hyperbole that CRV is a mental martial art.
While I can see the utility of such an analogy, it recently struck me that Golf and CRV have similar attributes.
Bobby Jones, arguably one of the greatest of all time, was the youngest player to ever win four major tournaments. He has been quoted at saying that "competitive golf is played on a 5 1/2 inch course... the space between your ears."
He also said the real way to enjoy golf is to take pleasure not in the score, but in the execution of strokes.
There is also his famous quote that you “swing your best when you have the fewest things to think about.”
These are more than mere platitudes. They are insights applicable to any activity where one is trying to master their self in order to maximize their ability in the pursuit of an ideal outcome.
Like golf, there is a physicality to CRV. In golf, once one trains the initial physicality to respond in concert/harmony with the subconscious, they can dial-in an accurate shot. In the case of CRV, that would be an ideogram. As it is a foundational tool of CRV, the ideogram is the doorway to unlocking information about your focus of intention (i.e. the ‘target’). It allows a point of access to cue for finer detail when probing about the target.
After one master's the golf stroke, much of the game is mental. As in CRV, the ability to understand what is mental noise versus information from the signal line is near paramount, perhaps only to staying in structure. But it takes practice, practice and more practice.
There is a structure to the golf swing, as there is the CRV session. And with both, the structure often times yields the result.
Regular practice ends up yielding what should eventually be a satisfying result. For the golfer, it is a satisfying round of golf. For the CRVer, it is a well-done session.
But as in golf, the same holds true in CRV: you can never get good enough.
