Consider That Which is Insignificant

May 29, 2021

 

That which is still and at rest is easily kept quiet...

That which has not yet appeared is easily prevented.
What is still feeble and weak is easily broken.
What is still deficient is easily dispersed.
 
Treat things before they exist.
Regulate things before disorder begins.
The strong tree originated from a tiny root.
A tower of nine stories is built up brick by brick.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single footstep.
 
If one tries to improve a thing, one damages it;
if one grasps it, they lose it.
 
The wise one, therefore, not attempting to form things does not damage them, and not grasping after things, they do not lose them.
 
The people in their rush for completing a task are ever approaching success,
but continually failing.
 
One must be as careful in the end as in the beginning if they are to succeed.
Therefore the wise one desires to be free from desire,
they do not value the things that are difficult to attain.

5 Energy Gates Qigong & Meridian Stretching

Empty yourself of Everything.....

Let the Mind rest at Peace.
Returning to the source is Stillness,
Which is the way of Nature.
~Lao Tzu

Internal Harmony = Smooth Energy Flow -
Gaining a flow of Smooth Energy, we may experience vital health and happiness:

The main focus in the practice of Taoist Qigong is the development and balance of ‘Qi’ Energy. Qi Energy can be viewed as ‘Universal Life Force’, and is the underlying essence of all life, development and creation.

When our Qi Energy is in balance, we experience more health, vitality, enhanced focus, greater memory, happiness and internal harmony.  When our Qi Energy is out of balance, we may experience fatigue, chronic pain, lowered immune response, irritability, and so on..... 

Leanring to work with your Qi Energy and bring your body's systems into balance is perhaps one of the greatest gifts you could give yourself in life.

The Dantian Center can be thought of as the...

The True Human

Jul 25, 2018

The True Human Unifies with Nature and equalizes all things.

The True Human is empty, yet is also everything.

The True Human is unconscious, yet is also everywhere.

The True Human of old slept without Dreaming, and woke without anxiety. 

The True Human ate without concern, and breathed deeply.

The breath of the True Human arose from the depth of the feet, 

while the Common Human breathes in a shallow manner from the throat.

The True Human of old knew neither to love life, nor to hate death. 

They offered no resistance.

The True Human of old received with delight anything that came into their life, and let go of anything that had been lost or forgotten.

The True Human’s mind was free from all thought. Their way was one of stillness and silence. Shining with simplicity.

The True Human was in Harmony with all things – without any mind of knowledge.

~ Chuang Tzu

Immortal Arts - Stages in Development

The Immortal Arts Method - a modern day approach to Taoist Neigong and the Art of Inner Alchemy - bringing one to greater health, healing, harmony and leading one to the Discovery of True Self.

During the Practice of Taoist Inner Alchemy - we use three aspects of Self -

Our Body, Mind and Breath.

The Mind is something that becomes clear, sharp and more focused the longer we continue the practice - this means that our ability in Focus or the ability to Concentrate our Intention and keeping to the Center of our Dantian improves.

If we look at the process of learning the Art of Taoist Inner Alchemy - we may see that there are forms, postures, shapes and combinations of movements that we practice.

The movements and shapes follow a unique pattern - they are circular -

Circular movement and physical shapes aid in the development and smooth flow of Healing Energy. To create these shapes and movement patterns in our practice - we must use the...
