13 Treatises #2

Understanding the Occult and the Physical

What do I understand from this treatise?

This treatise introduces the philosophy of Tai Chi. It introduces the concept of Chi, the five elements and the Dan tien. It is brief in its introduction, using anecdotal evidence to support the idea of Chi cultivation. It claims that if Chi is sunk into the Dan Tien, it can be mobilised to strengthen physical structures in the body.

As a female, the fixation of the role of semen in this chapter’s example is a bit much; with its stickiness becoming bone tissue, and reinforcing its strength. What do females do to increase their bone strength?

How can I apply this treatise?

By practising sinking Chi into the Dan Tien.

Practising Qigong and relaxation techniques to become aware of Chi enough to manipulate it.
