UNTANGLING OUR WORLD ...
When we visited Hong Kong Polytechnic University's Tai Chi research center, we discussed how when we flow through Tai Chi and Qigong movements, we feel the tight tangles in our body becoming "un-glued" and as we breathe and flow, the dams of rigidity we held in our bodies are massaged and exhaled.
WTCQD Founder at Hong Kong Polytechnic University's
Tai Chi Research Lab.
This results in our body being less divided into individual parts and muscle groups, as our body becomes one flowing whole, rather than isolated parts separated by these dams of rigidity that stress causes in us. Could this tell us something about the state of our society, nation and world?
Did you know that the "Yin Yang" symbol, is also referred to as the "Tai Chi" symbol? One of the things the yin yang symbol represents is the fractal nature of life. When our DNA is unhealthy, the body is unhealthy. When bodies are unhealthy, the community is unhealthy, and the nation and the world are unhealthy.
The dots inside the waves, containing other yin yang, or tai chi, symbols are smaller yin yang symbols, and the dots in those are smaller ones, and on and on ... symbolizing the fractal self-replicating nature of life ... and how individual health makes world health.
Everything starts in the human mind in the world today. When minds are stressed and tight, they see division and separation from the world, and from others in the world. Recent research shows that we are less compassionate when stressed.
Tai Chi and Qigong's ability to ungrip and loosen the body and mind so that we can flow more and more smoothly thru our Tai Chi and Qigong movements ... may also help our world become less divided.
In 3 months, people in 80 nations will come together to hold mass Tai Chi and Qigong exhibitions and teach-ins on World Tai Chi & Qigong Day. The world will "breathe together," and release the dams of rigidity in our bodies, our minds, and contribute to the untangling of division and rigidity in our world.
One World ... One Breath.
