DIRECT MOTION is the progression of parts or voices in a similar direction, as—

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \relative c'' << { c1 d e2. d4 c1 \bar "||" } \\ { e, g c2. g4 e1 } >> }
As a matter of contrapuntal effect it is weaker and less effective than Contrary Motion, which see.
