So meditation with the eyes closed is the key secret to celibacy

 

But this is the slow fire. Earlier you said that the quick fire is required to convert yin jing to yang jing. The quick fire is certainly not meditation, but the book Taoist Yoga doesn’t mention what it is. The only description I could find about it in the book is that it is a form of breathing.

You are making a claim with no evidence. So I will provide now evidence that debunks your false accusation:

Quote

The Fa Chueh says: ‘To remedy this negative state requires concentration of true inner fire which is done by fixing spirit in the lower tan t’ien, the source of foetal breath, by drawing the pupils of the eyes close to each other in order to bring the cavity of vitality into focus and by using the bellows to bring quick fire into action; as a result of pointed concentration a mass of true inner fire will soar up causing spiritual light in the cauldron to illuminate the whole body the four elements of which (see note 3 on page 41) are thereby sublimated. It will eliminate this malefic negative state and restore the brightness of the elixir in its cavity (under the navel)

And so the Quick Fire is the process of alchemy by meditation as concentration (visualization):

Quote

‘Shifting’ is motionless change, that is transmutation by quick fire which results in nothing any longer having form or shape whether seen closely or from a distance, and includes the elimination of every impure residue. Only this can be called true efficiency.

Quote

quick fires (from regulating the breathing) so that the genital organ will draw in, the inner light will manifest before the eyes,

Inner light - meaning you see something with your eyes closed (or so closed you don't see things externally)....

Quote

in so doing you should use your non-discriminative concentration to lift and lower it in order to complete a full orbit.

So what is "concentration" in relation to "quick fire"?

Quote

However, if he can unite the element of metal (male) with that of wood (female) and the sun with the moon in one place by drawing his pupils closely together in a squint and if he then concentrates them and looks within, he will see the light of true vitality appearing (between his eyes) in front of his original cavity of spirit which will then hold it to prevent it from running away;

If that is not meditation - then I don't know what meditation is.

Quote

should strive to control his heart (the house of fire) by driving his mind into the field of concentration so as to still and disengage it from sense data. When the mind stops wandering outside, consciousness will melt away, and the five aggregates will be empty of externals so that spirit and vitality will gather and stay within and no longer scatter without.

This is also called "subduing the dragon"

Quote

by concentrating on spirit to gather vitality he will thereby cultivate (eternal) life;

Quote

The practiser should then turn inwards his eyes to concentrate on the lower tan t’ien as long as possible until its inner heat vibrates.

Quote

Immortality is attained after the successful cultivation of (essential) nature; this is why in Chapter 1 we began by teaching concentration on the original cavity of spirit (tsu ch’iao between and behind the eyes). For he who succeeds in cultivating nature, can expect to realise (eternal) life as well.

Quote

When he inhales postnatal (fresh) air should enter by the nostrils and the throat gradually reaching the lower tan t’ien cavity (under the navel) simultaneously he should lift his concentration from the mortal cavity (at the root of the penis) up the spine until it reaches the top of his head.

So it's not JUST BREATHING - it is breathing plus meditation.

Quote

‘When the sun and the moon without unite (i.e. when the pupils of both eyes are drawn close to each other in a squint for pointed concentration), the heart (the house of fire) and lower abdomen (the house of water) within are automatically linked; only then can prenatal vitality develop gradually.

 

or this:

Quote

Then concentrate both eyes pointedly on the lower tan t’ien centre (under the navel) and breathe deeply so that your breath reaches that centre. If you do this for one hundred days your lower tan t’ien will become hot, your eyes will flash light and you will hear something like wind blowing in your ears;

and this:

Quote

raise the tongue to the palate, make pointed concentration to shrink the genital organ, drive the breath in and out of the nostrils and roll the eyes up and down in order to block the duct that discharges the generative force,

and this;

Quote

act immediately even before turning away their perverse thoughts. They should concentrate on the mortal gate (at the root of the penis) and breathe in to lift (the vital force there) up to (the lower tan t’ien cavity which is) 1-3 inches under the navel,

and this;

Quote

the practiser should unite the two pupils (i.e. draw them together by squinting) to concentrate on and drive spirit and vitality into the lower tan t’ien (under the navel) in order to produce and nurture the immortal seed.

and this:

Quote

unsteady concentration has cooled down the inner fire so as not to injure the immortal seed.

Quote

If he is stirred by sense data and opens his eyes to look outward, his concentration and spirit will scatter damaging the immortal seed.

So clearly the celibacy is innately tied to the meditation AND the breathing.

Quote

The master P’eng Mou Chang said: ‘The method of producing the immortal seed consists of “uniting” the heart with the eyes for pointed concentration on the lower abdomen so that if vibration is felt there, vitality can be immediately circulated (in the microcosmic orbit) for purification, but the slightest carelessness on the part of the practiser can cause it to drain away thereby nullifying all previous progress.

The "pointed concentration" is connected to "rolling the eyes" - it is to copulate the dragon and tiger (yin and yang qi) for the purification of the heart spirit energy.

Quote

eyes on its flame, rolling them from left to right nine times to vibrate the (positive) vitality in that centre (between and behind the eyes) so that it drops to the cavity of (eternal) life (under the navel) already full of (negative) vitality so that both vitalities unite to thrust open the original cavity of spirit (tsu ch’iao in the centre of the brain).

Quote

The union of (positive) with (negative) spirit is achieved by uniting (or drawing together in a squint) the pupil of the left eye which stands for positive spirit with that of the right one which stands for negative spirit for concentration on the upper tan t’ien centre (in the brain).

And so the synchronized breathing - causes Cardiorespiratory synchronization - which means the vagus nerve energy increases - and this is done through biophoton synchronization:

 

Quote

Monkey heart and running horse of intellect: When one breathes in and out, one’s concentration causes the generative force to rise and fall in the microcosmic orbit thus slowly turning the wheel of the law.

Thanks for the information, I appreciate your time in writing it.

 

So if the slow fire is turning the light around to the niwan and activating the vagus nerve, then quick fire is also turning the light around to the niwan, but activating a sympathetic response through the use of deep breathing, correct?

quick and slow fires (i.e. the relevant breath rhythms) should be used with concentration on the cavity of mortality (sheng szu ch’iao) at the root of the penis until the penis is checked and brought under control.

Motionless Change - actually means Parasympathetic Rebound.

The Quick Fire is continued until the parasympathetic rebound occurs.

So the rotating of the Eyes - connects the Right side vagus nerve (yang qi) to the left side vagus nerve (yin qi).

And so the sympathetic nervous system pushed to the extreme then activates the right side vagus nerve as yang qi.
