  5. Neiye - Section 13 - Concentration

    When the author speaks of concentrating the qi does it necessarily imply breath work? What's your opinion?

  9. Neiye - Section 1 - The Essential Qi

    The important point to me regarding location is that the text informs us that something is going to manifest there. The text doesn't say that some work has to be done or even the attention needs to be placed in the chest/heart area.

  12. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    You can learn the basics anywhere. There are books. As to learning the inner secrets, when your practice reaches a certain level, you'll meet a teacher. But you can't be in a hurry. You have to be prepared to devote your whole life to your practice. This is what's meant by religion. It's not a matter of spending money. You have to spend your life. Not many people are willing to do this. If you're ready to learn, you don't have to look for a teacher. A teacher will find you. - (Taoist) Master Hsueh in Road to Heaven by Bill Porter
