Balance – this is where we a going with Qigong!

Here is quote from Ray Griggs’ great book The Tao of Zen which I think describes what excellent qigong practice is.
“Balance is really balancing, not a static state but a dynamic process. It is a condition of perpetual arriving, of continual changing that is always adjusting to the shifting flow of circumstances. When Balancing becomes a reflexive reaction rather than a considered response, it is experienced as a stillness in the center of movement.”

    This is a great synopsis and how to think of balance. one must have balance in every part of life and ultimately have balance between mind body and spirit.
    Everything we do is influenced by elements: earth, wind, water and fire. Balance fire with water or earth with wind for example but it’s more complex and variable than just that example. Hard and soft should work in blanance with eachother. Balance the hard agressive attack with the softness of agreement; the rambling sales pitch (water) with a resolute no.
    There must be a balance in everything we do, like breathing in and breathing out; vocation and avocation; work and family; etc, etc.

    • Great comments Andrew I agree completely! When Balance becomes a reflexive action is what I think we going for, in other words when we don’t really need to think of balance it just happens. We are then in the flow and in a state of wu wie, acting with no conscious intent one with the Tao. Stillness in the center of movement. The watercourse way.
