The Islam is coming from that ultimately there is no religion, there is no I and You. Whichever practice you do is good as long as it has a good Heart behind it.

The Nazist Party is coming from that ultimately there is no politic, but just power: there is no good ideal nor bad ideal. Whichever political activity you engage is good as long as it is for the welfare of the nation.

In Europe we're used in underestimating threats...

More to add to this thread so EVERYONE can benefit (remember that we are aiming at HEALING the YIN):

 

Bladder meridian exercise (Squat technique). Even though the trainer is talking about muscles and joints, the problem comes from Yin deficiency which has caused a blocked and tight UB channel, which is actually the longest running meridian in the entire energetic system.

 

Pu Bu stance is great to open the leg meridians, we are targeting here the Liver and Gallbladder. I would recommend going down very, very slowly, with feeling and then holding the stance as long as you comfortably can.

 

Asian Squat practice (highly informative video!!). The holding on to the tree tip he discusses is also part of He Jinghan's foundation training. Hold on to the tree as long as you like, the tree's energy will heal you. If there is a running stream nearby even better! The Water + Wood elements/creative cycle will quickly heal the Yin.

 

 

Finally some principles to be observed in order to keep our internal organs healthy:

 

1. Too  much  exercise  damages  the  tendons  and  muscles: the liver is fatigued.

2. Too much observation, concentration and mental activity damages the blood: the heart is fatigued.

3. Remaining seated for too long damages the flesh, connective tissue and joints: the spleen is fatigued.

4. Remaining lying down or bent over forwards for too long damages the skin: the lungs are fatigued.

5. Standing without moving for too long damages the bones and skeleton: the kidney is fatigued. Abuse of the sexual functions will also damage this function.

 

In addition to herbal therapy, moxibustion is a very useful technique to tonify the kidney network. Key points:

 

1. Bladder 23 (Shen Shu). Points

 

2. GV-20 (Bai Hui). Point

 

3. KI-3 (Tai Xi). Point (apply moxa to both feet)

 

4. GB-39 (Xuan Zhong). Point (moxa to both legs)

 

 

Best! :)

A few more things:

 

1. Going yang during yin time, i.e. work, study. After sunset get ready to rest like animals do. Birds go mad around sunset, they communicate to one another that the sun is setting and it's time to stop being active and that's time to retreat and call it the day...obvioulsy night dwellers like owls and the like have their own rules, they are primarily yin and become active at night time and rest during the day.

 

When the sun rises, get up and become yang...like animals do.

 

2. Eating late is a no-no thing; your last meal should before noon (or, if you possibly can't as a lay practitioner, as close as possible to that time and defintively never after sunset). This has to be followed religiously, 'on the clock.'

 

3. Eat slowly, mindfully and never while you are doing something else.

 

These factors will keep the ministerial fire from rising and trigger a sexual response. In TCM there is a saying that goes like this:

 

"If the heart's imperial fire flares up, the ministerial fire will also flare and the jing will naturally wander astray."

 

And there are many worldy things, practices and events that easily trigger the Heart's fire.

Great tips.

Can you talk a bit more about yang and yin activities? Is everything about rest, contemplation and such a yin thing, while exercise, effort, mind exercises being yang? What is the best time to study then? Early mornings?

 

Thanks.


Always keen on having a skype conversation in English with you about absolutely everything.

Yang activities: gym work, boxing, running, cycling for 50km plus distances, and so forth, most Western type of sports as well as Asian 'hard' martial arts, wrestling, etc.

Yin activities: yoga, meditation, Qigong, etc.

Yin-Yang activities: Chinese Internal Martial Arts (Taijiquan being the most Yin). Studying when the GB and Liver meridians are active and for people born in Fire, Wood and Earth years is a Taoist crime, pretty bad. Also don't go too hard with study when the Heart and Pericardium networks are activated (11-2pm and 7-10pm). Pericardium time is a lovely time for seated meditation work instead of study, watching TV, have dinner, etc. like most people do.

 

Best time to study: from sunrise to sunset, after that slow down and become yin.

It seems that proven methods of Celibacy are old age, Erectile Dysfunction, low Testosterone level, being a priest in the Catholic Church(?), a Buddhist Monk, a Buddhist Hermit, a casualty of War, not having a sexual partner, for most...incarcerated male prisoners, soldiers in their first 8 weeks of boot camp, Navy Seals in training, those who take "Salt Peter," Severly Depressed individuals, men who have angered their wives...

How is it that Celibacy is an important state of affairs to achieve? Asked a different way, what are the benefits and disadvantages I would venture to say have to be considered before making the committment?

Deep practice of Baguaquan makes you celibate and fully focused on the path. But temptation is constant so one must persevere and never give up, eventually lust is completely DELETED. :)

 

Why is it important? Because jing (semen is the external aspect of it) is energy and you need heaps of it in order to fully open your mind and become one with everything.

In addition to that, you MUST do the Foundation work (especially the tree exercises) designed by master He Jinghan (Gong Baotian style Bagua) which he kindly offers this generous instruction for free in his blog (video links) and YT channel.

 

What kind of lessons master He Jinghan offers? A short overview please ...  ;)

Because at best you never read the Sira, nor the Hadith.

At worst, you're performing da'wa...
