Default Can any swim get better than this?

Focusing on doing nothing. Think about it:
All our lives our instinct is to wrestle the water, "fight" it, and create trust. As of today I have to focus on doing NOTHING with my Two shoulders during body rotation !!
Today I understood at last the Shinji shoulder twist. (see my previous thread). The focus is on doing nothing. do nothing with the shoulders while rotating the body. Keep them "tucked in". Avoid any work with them! :)

Can a swim get any better than this? We are supposed to "create". Shinji teaches us to do nothing and just use gravity. His "vertical shoulders" position are a result of using the gravity only.
Genius and based on the TI principles.

Please post a video of yourself swimming. I have been reading posts and I truly appreciate hearing of your "Aha" moments.

It would be so helpful if you would post a video so that I could see your progress. It would help me and others, too.
