Our bodies are the treasure that exists between heaven and earth. We are made of the stars and every part of us is infused with the consciousness of Shen (spirit). The last part of the process of awakening the conscious body is to remember that your body carries a profound wisdom beyond the thinking brain.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your body is the sensing transforming expression of your energetic self, it’s made to both send and receive information. One of the most magical things about being alive on Earth is the ability to be in the constant change and expression of ourselves, and to experience the same change in others. We are in a constant state of energy and form, spirit and flesh and we are in a constant state of sharing consciousness with everything and everyone. Like sunlight shining on a lake, it is both absorbed and reflected; we are the same, absorbing and reflecting the light of each other. More on my latest blog. #pathfinder

Mind control your body actions, strong will power comes through self believing.

Longevity tip of the day. Practice qigong.  A simple daily routine is all it takes. Daoist alchemists used qigong, in conjunction with a healthy diet, adaptogenic herbs and regulated sexual practices in hopes of achieving immortality. Many practitioners live to a remarkably old age in impeccable health. Classes coming to Temple Shakti soon!

We live as guests in the cycles of this earth, this universe, and nature itself. By living with nature we learn the ways of life and can better understand cycles within ourselves.

Taoist architecture includes temples, palaces, convents and altars where the power that envelops and flows through all things, both living and non-living, is venerated. Taoism pursues a long and fruitful life, and this theme is reflected in the decorations used in the temples constructions. #wudangshan #taoism #wudangtemple #wudangtaoism #taoismo #templotaoista #templowudang #wudangdaoism #daoism

Știai că...? Anorgasmia este o disfuncție sexuală, care nu a primit foarte multă atenție până de curând.

Incapacitatea femeii de a atinge orgasmul, în ciuda unei stimulări adecvate, nu era privită înainte...În contextul unei societăți în care sexualitatea femeii era adesea redusă la a-și face datoria față de sotul ei și a procrea.

Anorgasmia se manifestă sub diverse forme: poate fi primară atunci când femeia nu a trăit niciodată o stare de orgasm; secundară, atunci când orgasmul a fost atins până la un moment dat în viața sexuală a femeii și apoi nu și situațională, atunci când femeia atinge orgasmul în anumite situații particulare și în altele nu.

De ce apare anorgasmia? 
Cauzele pot fi de ordin medical, însă de cele mai multe ori ele provin din sfera psihologicului. De luat în calcul sunt și factorii ce țin de lipsa experienței sexuale a partenerului, ejacularea precoce, lipsa tonusului la nivelul mușchilor perineului etc.

“There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth. Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change. It operates everywhere and is free from danger. It may be considered the mother of the universe. I do not know it’s name; I call it Tao” - Laozi

Qi practice is like growing a garden. If you prepare the soil, plant the best seeds, and do it at the right time, you will grow beautiful flowers, healthy food, and healing herbs. Similarly, in Qi practices, meditation is the preparation, and your intent forms the seeds. Cultivate your energetic garden with these tools and over time you will experience an awakening in perception, greater clarity, and peace. .

The story Unfolds
__________________

Our path in life is one big, dynamic, unfolding moment ☯️ It's easy to get caught up in the details (as I so frequently do) or in the big picture, grand-scheme-of-things type stuff (again, guilty). It's all kinda just playing the same game though.

Yet all we truly have is this moment, and as cliché and trope as that might sound, it's a lesson I've learned over and over again 😅

So enjoy it. Don't put off 'til tomorrow what could bring happiness and fulfillment to your life today. Whatever you want, know that you have it... it might just not have arrived yet 😉

My 师兄弟姐妹 (brothers and sisters of the same master, Yan Han Xiu 严翰秀) from Wu Zhou 梧州  performing the 91 movement form of Yang Cheng Fu style Tai Chi passed down by Cheng Fu's son Zhen Ji to Mr.Yan in Nanning, Guangxi province. I love you old school guys! A bit of a shame you'll never see my Instagram posts (banned in China). Whenever I hear this Pipa (Chinese lute) music - the music we'd play when training with the public - I'm instantly transported back to those endless sweaty years in Guangxi training all day in the humidity, where nobody spoke any English, where my neighbours pointed at me and said 外国人 (foreigner) to their kids even after years of me living there, where the mosquitos hunted me like prey, where I spent all of my money, my love and my sanity on training, where my dear master lives and where a part of me will reside resisting the urge to swat mosquitos wide-eyed and inspired forever. Thank you.

Daoists have long taught us to look to water for lessons in how to act. When the world around you is serene, be still.
.
But when the world is drawing you forward, faster and faster over rocks and around bends, you must barrel forward, especially if you have the vision to see where the next serene pool lies. Crashing over each obstruction will not be painless, nor will it leave you quite the same, but if the universe pulls you toward a new happiness, we can do nothing but lean forward.
.
Time to lean forward.

PE GM Sam Chin says: "When you think, you don't know. When you know, you don't think"

I've been reflecting on this:

Q: What is thinking?
A: It's an internal process of asking and answering questions. (Just like this one.) When you know, there is no question.

In addition, I noticed, that in order to properly ask a question, one has to know the answer already. Therefore by the time I am able to ask the question, I already know the answer.

So why ask then? What do you think? :-) #zxd #zhongxindao #ilc #iliqchuan #philosophy #mindfulness #awareness #meditation #chinesemartialarts #kungfu #gongfu #martialarts #theway #bepresent #formless #neutral #buddhism #buddha #middleway #thought #thinking #tao #dao #daoism #zen #chan

Beyond Psychotherapy: The Laughing God behind the Masks by Julian M. Polzin

More & more psychotherapists, educated in western schools of thought, find astonishing similarities between cognitive behavioral therapy and eastern Zen Buddhism.

While the phenomena that occur on a daily basis to a therapist, leave the western mind baffled, we find ourselves finding answers not in belief systems or scientific reductionism of the 20th century, but in the practices of eastern spiritual teachings, quantum physics, neuroscience, the research on psychedelic substances & past life experiences.

Giving up objects of knowledge, humans make experiences which liberate them from suffering.

Is it possible to grasp the ungraspable reality, which could bring this liberation about?

Instead of trying to describe the indescribable, which is beyond rational thought, Zen does not explain what „swimming in the ocean of the universe“ is like, like many religions or belief systems try to accomplish, instead it points to the ocean. Thus the individual can experience the ocean for themself.
