Throughout my life I have been active exercising and basically eating healthy. However keeping up with my business which involves a lot of desk work has led me to slack off and I find myself feeling weak and tired. I discovered that I needed to develop a schedule that included time to exercise to move my body.
With the new schedule I find that now I’m more energized and able to stay up for longer periods of time and have included not only passive meditation but active meditation in my spiritual practice.
Active meditation provides me a means of increasing my chi force ; and with the increased chi force I am able to work longer and with time to do other things besides work.
So what exactly is Chi and Ki in Japanese tradition is the life force. It generally is maintained in the Hara region. it is about 2″ below the belly button. Through the technique of the Chi Do Moving Meditation which was passed down to me from the sacred lineage of King Salomon. The moving meditation increases the chi force and as it increases I have more energy and sustainability. I find when practicing Martial Arts that the more chi I accumulate the more I can be stronger both physically and mentally.
So increasing the Chi force is invaluable . I read about a Chinese herbalist who was the longest living documented man.
“Li Ching-Yuen or Li Ching-Yun (simplified Chinese: 李清云; traditional Chinese: 李清雲; pinyin: Lǐ Qīngyún) (died 6 May 1933) was a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and tactical advisor, known for his supposed extreme longevity. He claimed to have been born in 1736, while disputed records suggest 1677. Both claimed lifespans, of 197 and 256 year. ” Wikepedia
He was known to maintain a strict disciplined life which included martial arts and eating herbs.
Based on these things I’ve learned that if you don’t maintain an active lifestyle you age quickly and become unhealthy and in turn die sooner. Therefore I’ve decided to be more active, organized and structure and become more ritualistic in my daily life. Not only will I be serving myself but I will be stronger and able to be of better service to my clients and community.
