Matter can be divided in two parts, which are Xing and Qi. “Xing” is
the matter that our senses can perceive. “Qi” is what our senses
cannot perceive, but which actually exists, which modern science
has proved and studied. The union of “Xing” and “Qi” causes boundless
transformations. When that happens, a form or substance is formed.
When they are separated, the only thing left is “Qi”. Therefore,
“Qi” is a micro-universe in movement. One of the fields of modern
physics, the quantum physics, studies this micro-universe. The
“Qi” can be considered as the quantum. The nature of the QiGong
is the movement and vibration of that micro-substance. The “Qi”
can be controlled by our thought. This control is a feature of
the QiGong. The conclusion derived from this is that “Qi” is not
air and is not a energy produced by physical movement. We cannot
assume that QiGong is a breathing technique or method. One may
say that breathing is a part of the QiGong.
Why Do We Need To Train Lao QiGong
is the style developed by
master Cai, wich was the result of his whole life training. It
is characterized by keeping to the principles and the expert practice
of the old masters.
Our body cannot avoid the influence that the universe has over us.
It is formed by many biochemical substances that result in a high
level of life, which constantly produces and transmits energy.
This energy and transmission power are equal to the universe’s,
and thanks to this harmony and balance, the human being acquires
health and develops themselves.
The QiGong theory teaches us that our body is the micro-cosmos
that is united to the macro-cosmos; the training process emphasizes
feeling and purification, uniting thought and body.
We can say that QiGong can reunite or influence the human reproduction,
culture, science, religion, art, etc., from their beginnings to
their ends. If we do not understand what QiGong is, we won’t be
able to know ourselves nor find the balance between the human
being and nature.
How to Train QiGong
The principle of the training
teaches that it is necessary to connect the human being to the
heavens and the earth by:
• absorbing the yin and yang energy of the universe;
• isolating external influences;
• keeping the concentration;
• relaxing the body, the mind, and the spirit.
