In the beginning you use physical strength to hold the 5 standing positions,
With time you feel the energy;
The yin energy in the yin postures;
And the yang energy in the yang postures.
After a while ‘neutral’ is balanced between the yin and yang;
Then you feel the balance in the other postures;
The yin in the yang;
And the yang in the yin.
Every posture has an energetic ‘stasis’;
Each energy balancing its opposite;
The muscular force is at a minimum;
As the energetic takes over.
Then you search for the stasis in every posture in the form;
The balance is the power;
Then every centimetre between the postures;
Thinking “how could I ever miss this?”…
A peace and harmony descends on your being;
A stillness beyond all stillness’s;
The curtain of life is lifted;
And the Tao is revealed.
