The result was a profound relaxation in the water and a gigantic reduction in effort...
Yes! I love those big breakthrough moments. You are right about learning to let the water support you completely. People who don't know how to do this find swimming intimidating. Once you know how, you might as well be lying on a big comfy couch--the water is that friendly.
Congratulations, and enjoy the next step in your TI practice.
