The Year of the Fire
At the last London Hua Gong Weekend Zhixing demonstrated through the use of Qi Calligraphy images the state of unregulated and scattered energy which changes as we cultivate our Qi.
Below is an excerpt from his lecture.
"When we start the practice we discover that our real quality is weak and we notice a lot of messy scattered energy. When we are in a non Qigong state we are in a non-lively and stuck state. Without Qigong we are mostly in this state of chaotic and scattered energy. We only feel the physical quality and we may appear to be strong and tough, but our energy is very unorganized. We have lost our root and do not have awareness of our real seed of life. Our prenatal connection is buried and we end up in a physical heavy and stuck state.
When we start to do Qigong we start to get in touch with our original quality the original seed.
That spiritual information is the real element which connects us to the root or source of life or life system. It is this spiritual seed or root that makes us human; a creature of Nature or God. In the Qigong tradition we refer to this as the "Spiritual Baby".
We have this original quality when we are born, but when we grow up it is buried by other things. To do Qigong is to return to that source, that prenatal connection, that original information.
The original life quality needs to grow; the Spiritual Baby needs to grow.
We realise that our energy and our body is in a messy, disorganized casual and chaotic state. It needs to be reorganized and transformed. At first it is trapped, suffocated and needs to emerge step by step gradually through the layers. For the scattered leaked energy to be embodied it needs to be re integrated by the original Qi quality. It is a two-way process the Qi needs to penetrate the physical body and the physical body needs to fully absorb the Qi. Eventually after some consistent practice, a strong turbulence is created and the chaotic elements separate and recombine. Inevitably, all the messy, chaotic energy becomes absorbed by the true original living quality".
This is the beginning of a really rewarding physical and spiritual journey, of enhanced life quality a strong life force, and a reconnection with our latent abilities and talents.

Calligraphy of the Month
Yang Wo Hao Ran Qi / Cultivating My Upright Qi
This is a statement of Ming Zi or Mencius, lived 372BC - 289 BC, who was the most outstanding follower of Kong Zi or Confucius. Scholars in the old society of China would not only learn knowledge from classical books of the Sage, but also pay great attention to the inner cultivation. Yang Qi or Cultivating the Qi in short was a self-admonition for many well cultured people through history. While Qi is the inner reserve and quality as we know from the Qigong practice, Yang implies the importance of daily awareness, care and preservation. This statement is most appropriate for our Qigong practitioners.
