  1. What are the oldest Chinese Taoist myths?

    Neidan(内丹), internal refinery process or internal pill This is the original Chinese Taoist definition of Neidan(内丹) 内丹是以阴阳变化丶天人合一思想为指导, 以人体为鼎炉,精气神为药物, 注重周天火候炼药,而在体内凝练结丹的修习 The internal refinery process is based on the yi-yang transformation. It is a notion of integration of human and nature as a guidance. It used the body as a cauldron, 精气神(jing-chi-shen) as the medical ingredients. It was devoted in using the cosmic orbit procedure for the refinement with the right temperature. Thus it is a practice which was done inside the body, virtually, to make the pill. To be translated later!

    Of course, but I had the old concepts resonant with modern science and reasoning. Instead of believing the old myths blindly.

    Don't worry, my friend. I had no problem with that. Indeed, it was quite amusing.
  4. What are the oldest Chinese Taoist myths?

    I was trying to say how I felt inside me when I practice Qigong; no body listens is because they have already made up their minds. FYI I felt that my breathing was deep like sink chi to the dantien. It seems to me people talked about that but not getting the meaning across. The so called Fragrant Qigong, is like doing some slow exercises. It will have some health benefits. The slow movements are similar to practice Taiji if the breathing was emphasized. This has something to do with muscle contraction. I felt my strength from the energy that was generated from the muscle cells. Any slow muscle exercise does have some health benefits besides whatever you want to call the exercise. The only thing that bothers me is the claim of having a fragrant during practice.

    Ok! Despite to all the rumor and misinformation. The full name for "香功" is "芳香智悟功". It was never classified as Chi Kung(Qigong) because it was not emphasized on breathing.

    During exercise or performing QiGong we can increase the amount of oxygen intake. Please pay close attention to the total lung capacity reading. Total lung capacity is the total amount of air that the lungs can hold after the biggest possible breath in. The average total lung capacity is about 6 litres (6000 ml). That tells us when we practice Qigong, the amount of oxygen increased more than normal. Next, we will investigate what the body will do with the ample of oxygen. Ref:
  8. In that case, you must point that out to me in your video by the time frame. Please!
  9. Xing and Ming cultivation

    ...but it is very impressive though!
  10. I understand that is your terminology you had learned from your master.
  11. Yes, it is about borrow the power of the opponent. As long the opponent is holding on you, you may borrow his power to aid you but against him. However, if the opponent let go of you, then, you cannot borrow his power. In Taiji, it is called "借力打力", borrow power to counteract the same opposing force.

    Qigong is involved with breathing: 1. 2. p=qigong+breathing+techniques#id=40&vid=7ea354d2e6e62a5a19b0dcf43438654e&action=view 3.

    Let's start with Qigong. This is only the beginning. I want to introduce and emphasize the significance of breathing in Qigong with the article below. In other words, Qigong is deeply involved with breathing. We should investigate the benefits of some breathing methods. So, I might conclude that one cannot deny Qigong is not all about breathing.

    You reacted too soooooon.
  15. There are lots of myths from the thoughts of ancient Chinese Taoist. The had some good imaginations to come up with ways for longevity. All these myths were puzzling me when I was a kid. I would like to believe all that as others. We can talking about them be accepting them blindly. However, as I get older and wiser. Since I had become an engineer and practiced Tai Chi with Taiji breathing method, there was a drastic change in my body physically and biologically. Hence, I figured that there must be a way to explain all that with the aid of modern science. I had studied and researched for the last twenty years and came to some conclusions. Most importantly, I would like to share with those who are interested with an open mind. I would like to pass all these information before I leave this world; and hopefully someone would understand and carry on with these ideas. Finally, we are in the space age and should not be living with myths in our minds. There are doubts in the following with many people, such as listed below: 1. What is Qi, 炁? 2. What is Qigong 氣功? 3. What is Neidan 內丹? 4. What is dantien丹田? 5. What is alchemy 鍊丹術? I would like to explain them to the best I can with my present understanding and reserve to right to update my findings at anytime. We can starting by someone asking questions or I can post whatever comes into my mind. So, make your first shot!
