Get Your Chi Energy Right Here!
Chi energy, it surrounds us, constructs us, is us, and…what is it? To understand what Chi is it is necessary to define exactly who and what we are. To define who we are it is necessary to analyze the shape of our true body.
The immediate body is the one you have which is reading these electronic symbols, playing the guitar, talking to friends and generally making use of the six senses. We are the eardrum and the eyeball and the throat and hair and toenails and everything in between that has organic sensation. We have fleshy existence and we journey about the planet in the pursuit of fleshy pleasures.
The body we really care about is the body that is constructed of Chi. This is the body as far as we can perceive, and note that I don’t say experience through the senses. Indeed, to experience the larger body of yourself you have to understand that there is more than six senses, you have to experience life beyond the immediate body.
Now we come to the question, if everything is our body, then what is Chi? Chi is our body, and includes the organic thing you have presence in, and everything else, too. We don’t care what it is, it could be a wavelength, or whimsical notion…we just care that it is.
Though the definition is weak, if acceptance results, it is sufficient, but that brings us to the question…how do we control it? After all, we can move that finger or toe, why can’t we wave that tree or move that cloud, if they really are part of our true body? Why can’t we make it rain when we want, or stop that dangerous storm, or pull the plug on that stupid political party that keeps wasting our money/energy?
The first reason we can’t make our true Body work is that we are not used to making it work. We are used to sitting around and being made stupid by pills and TV and the things that dull our real perceptions, and our sense of our True Body, into unconsciousness. We can undo that by turning off the TV, or any type of programming that does not allow honest exchange, and by practicing a discipline.
The martial arts discipline you practice must make you look at your immediate body, unbind your senses, excite your imagination, and open you up to the idea of your True Body. The fighting discipline you practice must cause you to examine your immediate body until there is no mystery to it, and so that it is not merely an exercise in scientific examination. The discipline you practice must make full use of your senses until you step beyond your senses, outside of your immediate body, and experience your True Body.
If you are still unable to wave the clouds and perspire the rain whenever you want, then you must understand one thing…the True Body you are occupying is also being occupied by everybody else. Thus, to move your True body, you must make everybody else let go of their hold on the True Body, which means to make them turn off their TVs and pills. And, you must help them find their discipline, the True Discipline that will awake them give them the truth about chi energy and their true body.
