Self Transformation - Way of Inner Alchemy

Oct 19, 2021
 

 

 

Tao is the noumenon of all universal things.

It is soundless, formless, and intangible.

It is not bright, not dark, and hardly nameable.

Tao is so vast that it has no limits to confine it,

and it is so minute that there is no interior to fill it.

Tao is capable of exhausting infinitude.

Tao dates back to the time when there was no beginning and there was no time.

Tao is formless, but it gives birth to Heaven and Earth;

Tao is merciless and gentle,

but charges and empowers the movements of the Sun and the Moon....

entering into an enduring state of Balance and Harmony...

Unify with Nature

Oct 14, 2021
 
 

The True Human unifies with Nature and equalises 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.

Yin Yang - Law of Harmony

Sep 07, 2021

 

Yin Yang is the Way of Heaven & Earth..

The Fundamental Principle of All Things...

The Father & Mother of all Change and Transformation...

The root of Birth & Death...

~Huangdi Neijing - Su Wen

Learning the application of the Law of Yin and Yang Energy Transformation is a deep secret and key to understanding the practice of Taoist Qigong and Inner Alchemy Meditation.

We may think that within our human body the general principle of the harmony of Yin and Yang Energy, is that Yang Energy should be kept strong and dense so that the Yin Energy can remain in a calm, peaceful and gentle state. Yin and Yang as a theory expresses itself in all aspects of life, form, transformation and change.

Yin produces form / Yang produces energy.

Yin grows / Yang generates.

Yin is matter / Yang is energy.

Yin descends / Yang rises.

Yin is the structure / Yang is the function.

Yin is the body, blood and body fluids / Yang is the 'Ki' energy.

Yin is the right side /...

Zi-Ran - the Tao of Nature

Jun 30, 2021
 
Human Kind follow the Way of Earth;
the Earth follows the Way of the Heavens;
the Heavens follow the Great Way of Tao.
Tao follows the Way of Nature....
- Lao Tzu
 
Zi-Ran – ( 自然 ) - is a key concept in Taoism that literally can mean "naturally; natural; spontaneously; freely; also it is used to refer to 'Nature' , and something which exists freely of itself. Zi-Ran is what is 'Natural' and the 'Natural World'. Ziran also has the nuance, to refer to and point to one's 'True Nature' or 'True Self’.
 
Zi-Ran – ( 自然 ) - is perhaps one of the oldest philosophical views from the Taoist School. Lao Tzu introduced the concept of Zi-Ran throughout many chapters in his work the 'Tao Te Ching' and it points in one way to something which exists that is opposite to all the things of the world which are artificial and man made....

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.

The True Human

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.

Gate of Awakening

Jun 25, 2018
 

 

Nurturing Energy, forget words and guard it,

Conquer the mind, do non-doing.

The Human body is only Vitality, Energy & Spirit.

Vitality, Energy & Spirit ~ the 'Three Treasures'.

These Three Treasures are what makes up a human being,

and are at the very root of our health, vitality and spiritual expression.

~ Ancestor Lu DongBin

 HEALTH - Harmony of Energy

The main focus in the practice of Taoist Yoga is the development and balance of ‘Qi’ Energy.

Qi Energy can be viewed as the ‘Universal Life Force’, and is the underlying essence of all life, development and creation.

When our Qi Energy is in balance, we experience health, vitality, happiness and internal harmony.

When our Qi Energy is in a state of unbalance, we can experience sickness, emotional unbalance, chronic pain and fatigue.

The first aim of the practice of Taoist Yoga is to gain a smooth flow of Qi Energy, and an internal balance of Qi Energy, which gives one the experience...

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...
