It is very easy to get cought in the beauty of the motion and to force smooth round movement even when there is no need or purpose for them. Try to swing something heavy and strange in shape. A garden chair (not near your mothers glass collection) will do as you first swing it around you and than add walking to it. Walk simply back and forward. Change directions and see how you can add the swinging of the chair (pendulum up and down at the side of the body, Around the body, overhead and so on) to this without creating a twisting power you have to brace against. This is easily done if you maintain your awareness in your body and let the breath lead each step and swing. Check how you can have the swing (use a staff for this) go through more than one plane by swinging and walking at the same time and keep it at that until it is not a problem at all. Than add people trying to come at you and run the staff through them or to them and than have them with staffs or any other thing they choose and enjoy the attention this requires of you. This is how it feels to be awake.
