视频背景是中国传统的皇家贵族红色墙壁,虽然热烈明艳,却给人威严之感。这种颜色在古代只能在皇家园林建筑才可以使用,平民百姓是绝对不可以使用的。现在这种建筑可以在中国的故宫博物院可以看到,还有一些皇家园林,包括一些宗教场所,像武当山、少林寺,如果你有机会来中国,一定要到这里领略一下中国几千年的历史色彩!

觀此比劍專中腕臂與太極劍之用
合顧其法皆不傳
世之能劍者大抵皆舞劍之
類如風捲如電馳如鳥落如龍翔
容觀雖美未必適於用也

Guān cǐ bǐ jiàn zhuān zhōng wàn bì yǔ tàijí jiàn zhī yòng
Hé gù qí fǎ jiē bù chuán
shì zhī néng jiàn zhě dàdǐ jiē wǔ jiàn zhī
lèi rú fēng juǎn rú diàn chí rú niǎo luò rú lóng xiáng róng guān suī
měi wèibì shì yú yòng yě

《太極劍》陳微明

Demonstrations of sword matches that focus on (striking) the wrist and arm are used the same in taiji sword. (I’ve) noticed that this has not been passed down.
Generally speaking, those practicing the sword dance today are like a rolling wind, very fast like a swooping bird, and with an appearance like a soaring dragon; it looks beautiful but is not necessarily of any use.

Quoted from the introduction to Taiji Sword by Chen Weiming (1929)
trans: Scott M. Rodell

My translations are not always into perfect, smooth English. Instead I work to capture the essence of the original Chinese and not make unnecessary interpretations for the sake sounding better.

Ye Ma Fen Zong, that’s how it sounds in Chinese, the name of the Taijiquan 24 posture 2. I will never be able to remember that, anyway. But I remember the wild horse part. 

We have wild horses here, not far from my place. I went to watch them closer a couple of times. They are beautiful. A bit rough-looking, and playing rough too, but that’s because they are wild. Such natural grace about them…

The name of the posture always reminds me of wild horses I saw. The mane is separated by the wind as it’s galloping free in the field, releasing energy, stress, tension. It’s is such a happy sight, and a feeling. When I do the posture, my palms pass each other as they move in separate directions, without any force, allowing energy flow freely. 

I made an audio recording of this posture today, as an episode of my Taijiquan “morning exercise”. It helps me to pay attention to the details and perfect my movement without thinking what should be next. I listen to my voice, telling me what to do, so I can focus on key points  - heel first, palm facing up, palm facing down, stances, angles - and it helps me to remember everything the right way.

One of my favourite postures, and one of my favourite living creatures… 

“When God wanted to create the horse, he said to the South Wind, ‘I want to make a creature of you.  Condense.’ And the Wind condensed.”

– Emir Abd-el-Kader

Looking for truth outside yourself, you won’t find any. 

Everything you know, and want to change, is right here, inside you. 


As we all spend more time contemplating (we are, one way or another) these days, I’ve been reflecting on where my humble, DIY practice of Taiji and Qigong took me. I decided to write a journal to map my journey around a core point: what this practice is - to my body and mind? What it does? It’s a personal exploration, based on my own experience - certainly not an expert word on anything - and I thought someone else might find it useful, too.

I will be writing about my journey - which is still very much on, more than ever - in the following posts. Right now I’d like to outline a few major points, answering the question about body-mind practice, what’s that for me, and how I got to the point where I am standing now.

It started with my body, and then moved on to my mind.  And then they became one. All thanks to the practice. 

We all come to a point where we turn to physical exercise because we want or need to improve our body. I was hurt, I had problems with my spine, I was scared I wouldn’t be able to walk normally again, to function normally, but I couldn’t commit to something like Pilates or power training. Instead, I searched for a type of practice that would allow me to work out in a slow, “live-in” manner. By that “living-in” I mean - my approach to physical training was from the point of view of my body, I wanted to understand how it worked. Like a car mechanic, I needed to see where the problem was, and to understand the whole mechanism, all essential parts of it, what was important for it to regain function, I also needed to see the connections, the influences, the dependences, the whole body universe. Enter Wuxing Theory of Five Elements. Enter ancient knowledge. Both ethics and aesthetics of  which were extremely appealing to me. Finally I stopped dismissing Buddhism as a religion, yoga as a yuppy trend, and zen as a word to oose intelligence. I started reading and thinking it over, for the first time seriously - I wanted to understand. I needed to understand. Because it was a part of my body experience, -  clearing the attic. The hard drive, the mind… All that was mind work, you see. For the first time during a work out, I actually was in that work out, with my thoughts, inside myself, focused entirely on breathing, posture, movement, unison, balance… It’s an amazing thing really. True Yin Yang. I sort of withdraw myself from the world for a moment, go into a bubble, to get something from there, to touch a precious core of Universe inside that warp I go in, and suddenly I feel the walls disappear, and I am reunited with the world more than ever. I breath in unison with the Universe, I feel in unison, I see through the eyes of the Universe. Mind-body experience is something I never had before I started practicing Qigong and meditation. I invested years into my body improvement (and I long forgot about any back pains!) and by doing that consciously, with awareness, dedication, care and respect to tradition, I was given keys to the world of Chinese medicine, ancient martial arts and poetry, but also was glad to discover fellowship of practitioners, as myself. Everything I know I learned from other people. There is no other way to learn but following the crumbs. 

So, the answer to my own question, what is a body-mind practice? 

It’s a life-style of … an aware being. Aware of themselves in the world, and of the world within. It’s not a matter of an hour or two of practice. It’s a live-in, always-aware, connected to every other being by billion of invisible threads, existence. To me it was a true life changing experience, and I am still learning. 

This is my journal.

#Taiji
They have a pod of dolphins in Taiji. My today’s word is this.

Cultures have long heard wisdom in non-human voices: Apollo, god of music, medicine and knowledge, came to Delphi in the form of a dolphin. But dolphins, which fill the oceans with blipping and chirping, and whales, which mew and caw in ultramarine jazz - a true rhapsody in blue - are hunted to the edge of silence.
