Can you remember that feeling when you open your eyes after your Qigong practice and everything looks brighter, sharper, crisper and more alive. The air smells better, your mind feels sharper, your body feels relaxed and strong. The world just seems like a better place.
Can you remember that sensation? Hopefully you’ve had it very recently, like during this mornings practice.
But what’s happening? Has the world changed as a result of your practice?
You’ve changed. One of my favorite quotes comes from the French born American author Anais Nin:
We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.
When you’ve finished your Qigong practice you have done some work to clear the ‘doors of perception’. So to wrap up this post, I’ll finish with the words of William Blake:
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
