Question


You pay a lot of importance on entering into a Qigong State of Mind. Can you please elaborate on it?

 

Answer


We start every course by entering into a Qigong State of Mind. Why? It is because by doing so, we attain results faster and more by a very big margin, probably more than 10 times! We shall have a clearer picture by using some examples.


Let us take a Qigong class lasting an hour. If I teach exercises like Lifting the Sky and Carrying the Moon the way it is normally taught in other schools, students will be lucky to have 100 units of Qi flow after 10 classes.


If I lead the same students into a Qigong State of Mind first, then teach them exercises like Lifting the Sky and Carrying the Moon as I do now, they will have 100 units of Qi flow in that class. In other words, without entering into a Qigong State of Mind, the students need 10 hours to get 100 units of benefit. With entering into a Qigong State of Mind, the same students need only 15 minutes to get 100 units of benefit!


Let us take a kungfu class lasting an hour, like a Shaolin class or a Taijiquan class. If I teach students exercises to develop internal force, like Golden Bridge and Three-Circle Stance, the way it is normally taught in other schools, they will be lucky to have 100 units of internal force after 10 classes.


If I lead them into a Qigong State of Mind first, then teach them the same exercises, they will have 100 units of internal force in the same class of 1 hour. In other words, without entering into a Qigong State of Mind they need 10 hours to get 100 units of benefit. By entering into a chi kung state of mind they need only 1 hour to get 100 units of benefit!


Entering into a Qigong State of Mind is a modern term. In the past, it was known as entering silence. In Shaolin context it was known as entering Zen, and in Taijiquan context it was known as entering Tao. Many people consider entering silence, entering Zen or entering Tao as advanced teaching, but we teach it right at the beginning.


Actually one cannot have a chi flow or develop internal force if he is not in a Qigong State of Mind. That is why other students, if they are lucky, need 10 hours to get 100 units of Qi flow or internal force, whereas our students can get 100 units of Qi flow or internal force in just 15 minutes or 1 hour.


Inter-spaced in the 10 hours, other students enter into a Qigong State of Mind for a few minutes without their conscious knowing and derive some benefit. Because this happens sporadically, they do not have the advantage of accumulated effect. They will be lucky if they can get 100 units of benefit in 10 hours.


We purposely enter into a Qigong State of Mind and maintain it as best as we can to attain the desired benefit. We have the advantage of accumulated effect. Hence, we can get 100 units of Qi benefit or internal force in just 15 minutes in a Qigong class or 1 hour in a Kungfu class.
