Left Hand and Creativity
This is my first time posting my handwriting on the blog. I have been meaning to do this for a while now, and there it is. I write letters in the left column with my right hand, and I rewrite the letters repetitively with my left hand. Now if you can read the letters correctly, you will see that my left handwriting is very sloppy. This is because I did not develop it well enough. Since I was a child, my parents would condition me to only write with my right hand; as a result, it limits me to only be one sided when it comes to writing. As I am growing older, I am learning to appreciate my whole body more. That is one of the reasons why I write with my left hand. Second, your left hand and the right hemisphere of your brain is connected. The right hemisphere is the creative, critical thinking side of you. Denying is the greatest sin ever committed! Thirdly, my objective as a human being is to be as real as I can. How can I be real with just one side?? That is nonsense. I am 25 now and I should better than that. Now some people might ask: how can that help you if you are practicing Martial Arts? Well, one should understand that Martial Art is the expression of your soul made visible. The soul cannot be expressed without a body well taken care of, strong, flexible, you name it. To also express your soul means to also being able to write comfortably with both of your hands. Martial Arts does not always involve fighting. You fight somebody only if you have to, not because your ego want you to. Self-expression only occurs when one masters his or her ego. Otherwise, you live one big lie. You know... I do not want to live that way. I do not want a wasted youth. I want to dedicate my life to be as authentic as I can. Writing with the left should do it.
