Cultivator’s Calendar May 26th. What surfaced in my Qigong play this morning was not the simplicity of the movement but the grand complexity of union with the Tao the simple movement in Qigong brings forth. We are all so enamored with flashy movement and feats of flexibility, agility and strength that we miss entirely the mystical presence we are everywhere connected to. We are all so thirsty for this connection yet we keep drinking from poisoned wells thinking it is better than nothing. Today make a change, take a drink from the big well always filled with water, slow down reorder those pesky habits to allow for stillness. #taichichuan
Cultivator’s Calendar May 25th. It is wiggly out there folks. One of the things we humans do is to close ourselves off when there is pain. Shields go up. This many times makes us feel even more isolated and angry. Reach out today feel your connection to your community and those around you. If you are a cultivator reach outward and feel your connection one way to do this from a Tai Chi perspective is Play Chan Su Chins and let the web of life move you. With Qigong you can play 9 shine activities which is fundamentally about protective Qi. Which funny enough you imagine shining out brightly in all directions. Another activity is Fong Son Gung the true breath. Inhale see energy coming into every pore of your body exhale imagine you are a big shining lightbulb. #taichichuan
Cultivator’s Calendar May 24th. Keeping a relaxed and playful state of mind, where you consider everything a happy accident wherever life leads you today seems like a good way to proceed looking at all of the daily Energetics. Let’s see how it goes huh? #taichichuan
Cultivator’s Calendar May 23. There is a strength that can be accessed by gentleness called wise force. As if you hold and express movement from a place where you are touching something delicate that you don’t want to injure. This kind of movement is a doorway that leads to a conversation with the Tao. One listens more than one pronounces. This wise force allows space for something mysterious to attend. #taichichuan
