Laozi’s Dao Te Jing in the third chapter says “Empty the MIND, fill the belly. Weaken the ambition, strengthen the character.”
So then, this is the motto for practicing China’s Wudang Daoist Qigong. To study each method, each method must be understood, the ENERGY processed must be understood. When the DAN TIAN is full and sufficient, the inner BREATH is unimpeded and not obstructed. BREATH and strength are sent out from the spine, following that which the MIND desires.
Strive for the substantial, don’t let practice become lax, maintain it so it will be lasting; abide by the regulations, follow the rules; refine the breath, cultivate the body; cultivate the MIND, develop the character; thus seek emptiness and stillness, complete emptiness, and long life.
