All that study, yet it doesn't fit together.
All that information, but no sure way to act.
All those years of dedication, but still the struggle to find balance.
The ability to make connections is vital to your practice. Study broad and deep, but distill the essence to bring it all together. Expand and elaborate, then summarize the key point.
When you understand the essence, everything else makes sense. You see the relationship and the bigger picture. You see the next step, the possibility.
Without the essence, you're all head.
With the essence, you're all heart.
