Vital Qi Newsletter November 2014

Instructor's Corner

As we approach Thanksgiving, it is time to reflect on all the abundance we have in our lives. It is time to give thanks for this abundance. During the trying times in life when everything seems dark and difficult, it is especially important to remind ourselves of how grateful we are for the people and things in our lives. If we practice gratitude regularly during the good times, then it will be easier to practice gratitude during the difficult times.

When studying Qigong, we learn that it is the energy of our mind that activates the Chi Field and attracts to us people, things or circumstances with a similar energy vibration. Thus, it is important to feel gratitude and be positive as we take action to achieve our goals and desires, including our health goals and desires.

Qigong provides many tools for training the mind, reducing stress and increasing energy to improve your health. I have benefited from many forms of Qigong. You can experience similar benefits too. The purpose of the Vital Qi Newsletter is to bring awareness to Qigong and to inform you of Qigong classes and products available at Inner Vitality Qigong. We also intend on covering other natural health related topics. We look forward to working with you and growing together as we cultivate inner vitality through the art of Qigong. Please feel free to share this newsletter with family and friends.

Lessons From The Masters

Lessons from the Tao Te Ching

In Chapter 9, the Tao indicates that if you try to put too much into your cup it will fill over. As you will find throughout the Tao, there are many metaphors for living life in a balanced way. Thus, it is best to stop filling (short) before you over fill it and it spills over. In life it is very easy to become out of balance. As we find that a sharp blade is easily blunted (you can't keep it sharp for long). Gold and jade refer to wealth. If you focus too much on wealth and position (greed and power), it will bring trouble upon yourself. Once you have accomplished your goal, it best to keep to yourself. This is the way to Heaven.

You can read more about the Tao Te Ching here.

Chapter 9
Holding a cup and overfilling it
  Cannot be as good as stopping short
  Pounding a blade and sharpening it
  Cannot be kept for long
  Gold and jade fill up the room
  No one is able to protect them
  Wealth and position bring arrogance
  And leave disasters upon oneself

  When achievement is completed, fame is attained
  Withdraw oneself
  This is the Tao of Heaven

Lao Tzu
Translation by Derik Lin and source from


Words of Wisdom

"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds, your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be."

- Patanjali
