IDA ROLF on Creating lasting change in a body....

"There comes a time in the course of Rolfing when you see that your Rolfee is able to align himself, but he doesn't want to do it. He just doesn't want to do it. There is always a physical factor in him which doesn't want to do it; there is often a psychological factor involved as well. There is the problem of a self-image -- the image that he is trying to project in the world. He has an unconscious need to project an image of "I need help. I need sympathy. I need this, that, and the other thing." He will revert and try to project that image, even when he is able to project another image, until he suddenly sees a light and gets into his realization that there are other images that might be more desirable. Some people call this thing "karma." Some people say that the minute you get the idea that another image might be more desirable you are changing karma. You can say it that way if you like; it's a good way to say it. At least at that point you are able to change what is labeled as karma. You are able to behave diffferently, and you do it."
