Warby when you talk about the universe I've come to understanding the universe through Chi Kung. When I started I thought it was an exercise programme. Over time I discovered that it took me to a blissful place that transcended anything I could comprehend experiencing. I was able to create tremendous amount of heat in my body by pulling in the energy in the universe. With time I came to understand things like how the Chinese discovered acupuncture.
Throughout history it seems wise men from all cultures talk about us being energy and everything being one. I've come to understand and see that.
With the Chi Kung I ended up learning that there is a wealth of knowledge buried within us. The problem for me came when I no longer could control the energy or contain it. So there I was mid winter with all the windows open sitting in shorts trying to cool down. Not a pretty sight.
So I stopped Chi Kung and for about a year and have only recently started up again. I finally found a person that can help me control the energy. Without that I wouldn't go back. A Chinese Acupuncturist from China who has a degree in medicine is helping me. I've come to learn that in his world foods are broken down in to hot and cold. Some foods heat the body up and others cool it. I need to mainly eat and drink cold foods and drinks.
The reason I couldn't contain the energy was that in his terms I need to keep balance between the hot and cold (yin and yang). So I can take in this energy and balance it within.
I told this guy what happened to me and he was blown away. He'd heard many stories of what I was experiencing and was able to confirm and explain what he knew. For him this had all been theory and for me it came from within. I told him something I hadn't told many people and that was when I was at my strongest I could see the acupuncture points in the body and they appeared as blue dots. He then explained to me that the traditional acupuncturists didn't go by a chart and theory to work but could see the energy flow through the body and even now in China there are many practitioner's like this who look at you, see the energy flows, see where the blockage is and then put a needle in to fix it.
Other side effects of Chi Kung were that I only needed to sleep about 4 hours a night, I didn't need to eat much. These two are as a result of the energy from the universe providing the body with energy. I have heard stories of people who don't eat at all and I thought that couldn't be true. I now think its possible.
With all of this comes the understanding that I extend to the end of the universe in all directions. What I'm curious about now is the monks in the east who meditate daily for their entire lives. What do they see and know.
Now this all seems like a huge amount to blurt out. I guess this is now part of my world and part of my knowledge. Before I stopped I could see when someone wasn't well and what part of the body was effected. It appears as a dark area. I also know what I need to do to that area to make it better.
Going forward I expect this is an area that will strengthen. At present my goal is to work on the communication skills and working with people in terms of how their brain functions. I'd like to continue to work more from a science stand point where I can explain the neurological processing and how I change it.
When I started Chi Kung I had no idea I would discover what I've written above. 3 years ago I would have not believed that it was possible. My reality has changed dramatically. I look back and three years ago I could say it was like I was a child covering my eyes and saying to an adult "you can't see me" and believing that this was true. Now I know can see that when I cover my eyes adults can see me.
What I'm curious about is what I will know in a year or two years or ten years from now if I can manage to continue doing Chi Kung and control the energy.
Looking back I was so stunned that I could create so much heat in my body that I played with it and focused on it, when I should have accepted it and moved on.
Right now I don't know what is possible or impossible anymore. I just keep an open mid to all realities.
I accept there is no undoing of understanding. I cannot as an adult suddenly believe that if i cover my eyes that no one around me will see me.
I prefer to now think there are many truths and many realities. I accept that everything I believe now can be untrue as my understanding grows. In years to come as I continue Chi Kung I will probably find new truths and realise that even now I am a child with my hands over my eyes thinking I can't be seen.
