From my Bureau of It's Just A Helpful Image, I've stumbled on a cool new way of thinking. Usually "core" means my psoas, cranio-sacral nerve connections, spine, pelvic muscles, etc., but today I was noticing how my transversus abdominus and internal and external obliques felt like they were hands, holding in my deeper core muscles and the muscles that led to my legs. And if they were hands, then surely I could *use* them like hands. I could hold on to things tighter—and there was that sharp twist in an ocho that Gabriel calls "juicing the orange." I could let go of things—and there was sending the legs. I could do a lot more than just "let go" of things though: I could toss them, or throw them, or let them slip from my grasp, or lay them down like sleeping babies. Sure enough, different muscular releases led to different qualities of legs going. I could also recollect things back into my "hands"—and there was a controlled collecting that kept the body part being collected available for instant change.
