Balance

Balance

I find if anything balance is the bedrock of living a life where I work two jobs and teach qigong and neijia – baguazhang primarily – and have to keep up with my training. Fitting every little bit into my schedule as I possibly can. Today when I parked my car I did my Chen Taijiquan 42 Fajing set four times to wake myself up before heading into the office. One of the main reasons I love the Internal Chinese martial arts is because they require a patience and dedication uncommon in other arts. They require one to feel the balance inside the body, to feel the way the bones move and to feel where the breath is with each subtlety of alignment and shifting of movement. In this way one can wake up to the inner world of Flow by listening to this balance and back and forth of movement. Balance … is in everything if we make the choice to be present and aware of how we are choosing what we are choosing. Peace.
