Practice opening in situations that are closing you.
The superior man practices opening during times of automatic closure. He feels the entire situation with his entire body. A closed body is unable to sense subtle cues and signals, and therefore, unable to act with mastery in the situation.
Open the front of your body so your chest and solar plexus are not tense.
Sit or stand up straight and full, opening the front of your body.
Breathe down through your chest and solar plexus, deep into your belly.
Look directly into the eyes of whomever you are with, feeling your pain as well as feeling the other person.
