The martial art of Aikido emphasizes the technique of yielding to oncoming opponents. If you place yourself directly in front of the approaching energy, you will absorb it’s force, possibly be knocked off your feet and maybe even sustain an injury. However, if you notice the advance of the energy and turn or just step aside, it will likely topple itself without your help. You won’t be overwhelmed because of a resistant stance and you’ll be prepared for what arises in your reality next.
Yield to what is.
