Last month I had the opportunity to talk at the Hapachtchi Pangu monthly meeting that Pam has organized for the past year. My routine does not allow for many evenings of "free time." but this was a delightful time. Thank you Pam for the invitation. Since everybody there has some experience and understanding we were able to take a closer look at some of the things found in the new edition of Pangu Mystical Qigong. Here they are fro your contemplation as well:
The three common names of our gong: 1) Pangu Mystical Qigong, 2) Pangu Shengong, 3) Qian Kun Ri Yue (Heaven and Earth, Sun and Moon qigong). If you notice on Master Ou's "business cards" both names are indicated. On the surface these are just names, but if you go deeper into the meanings of the words you can see that they carry profound meaning. There are two principle aspects of this qigong: 1) absorb the essence (qi) and 2) take kindness and benevolence as basis...(page 68). But only by..."train yi (the mind) to lay foundation, gather qi (energy) to nurture the body..."(page 69). "Understanding is more important than doing the physical qigong practice" (page 96).
Why is that? Because qi is matter and spirit, yi is spirit and matter, qi follows yi, yi is generated from heart/mind (xin) (page 110). This illustrates the importance of intention, as yi, the mind, directs the attention, For this reason a pure heart has a different mental attention than a cloudy one. Results of practice vary due to this act of attention.
When Master Ou was here in January, I mentioned that every time I had a small insight, that I realized how little I knew. That, he said, was profound. Humbly we go forward feeling for the soul within us, letting it manifest in our lives. I believe as we do that all levels of healing benefits manifest in our lives. This includes improved physical health, positive social interactions, mental and emotional peace, and spiritual revelation. In fact, it could be said that spiritual revelation is really the basis of all the other benefits.
