WHAT IS THE ESSENCE OF QI GONG? (how do you pronounce that? chee gong):
Breath, spirit, nature, body. Bring the mind body spirit nature into balace and breathe unity. Essoteric mishmash only goes so far however so this is an example of what qi gong does for me.....
I am back recently to Connecticut, after an adventuous trip to Seattle. Upon my return I dove directlty into a rush of activity and nearly lost my mind. I am quite aware of my need for processing time, however I don't always find a way to meet my own needs. In fact, I am not infrequently overwhelmed by the immensity of my feelings. The story they tell is sometimes desperate and filled with fear. My mind travels to the worry and the doubt. I am either paralyzed or numb to my own state of panic and find myself lost in the drama of a need for some expression. At moments like this I feel as though time is bearing down on my soul and I can't breathe. I feel crushed by the weight of my own anxiety.
If I can think I will take a breath, hold it a moment, and shine the light of mind back into my body. I will exhale slowly as I feel the warmth of imagined sunlight shining on my every cell. When I can see the light inside of me, time stands still once again. The metaphor is real. The action and the ability represent a magical endowment of the great Oneness.
The breath is a magical gift. The mind is a beautiful tool. When they dance together, the world finds its heart once again.
