This morning’s neigong:
The sky weeps to the earth;
And earth yields in empathy;
The tears soften and nourish the earth;
Which in turn nourishes everything attached to it.
Empathy is to yield and receive first;
To use the intelligence of our soul to understand;
To receive, with an open spirit;
And then to nourish the situation in a helpful way.
Just as the earth softens to the tears of the sky;
Humanity should soften towards any situation first;
Join with it to understand it;
Then bring it to a state of harmony.
For this we need a soft front and a strong back;
The balance of yin and yang within ourselves;
This has to be trained and understood;
This is the way of Tai Chi….
