FROM of old there are not lacking things that have
 attained Oneness.
The sky attained Oneness and became clear;
The earth attained Oneness and became calm;
The spirits attained Oneness and became charged with
 mystical powers;
The fountains attained Oneness and became full;
The ten thousand creatures attained Oneness and
 became reproductive;
Barons and princes attained Oneness and became
 sovereign rulers of the world.
All of them are what they are by virtue of Oneness.
If the sky were not clear, it would be likely to fall to
 pieces;
If the earth were not calm, it would be likely to burst
 into bits;
If the spirits were not charged with mystical powers,
 they would be likely to cease from being;
If the fountains were not full, they would be likely to
 dry up;
If the ten thousand creatures were not reproductive, they
 would be likely to come to extinction;
If the barons and princes were not the sovereign rulers,
 they would be likely to stumble and fall.
Truly, humility is the root from which greatness springs,
And the high must be built upon the foundation of the
 low.
That is why barons and princes style themselves
 "The Helpless One," "The Little One," and
 "The Worthless One."

Having
Spirit receive
Earth’s energy


Oneness
Is having
A connection
To the Masters of old
A conduit
For the spirit/gravity
Of China
The Master
Depends on
Students
For support
If the student is humble
He can support
The Master
Even take on
Some of the Masters’
Errands and errors
Being one
With the Masters
Makes me
What I am
To reach
The oneness
Two paths
Civil
Martial
I am following
The civil path
The martial path
At some point
I must adopt
Reach Tai Chi Chuan
The secret is to
Kow Tow
To the lineage
Listen
To know if
Students are
Kow Towing
To the Masters
To know all
Martial technique
Is impossible
Same as confronting
An opponent
With just the civil
Must have both
This is the yin/yang
Oneness
The ability to
Change with change
The secret
To the civil/martial
Is change with change
Putting it
All together
Reeling silk
Bow-to-bow
Non-stress
On joints
Is the path way
To oneness
In Slow Set
Look to
A Tai Chi Chuan
Demo
Not just for its form
But its energy
Jing/Chi
To attain
Oneness
The clavicle joints
Hip joints
Two gates
Open
To the flow
In both directions
Humility/virtue
Open
The clavicle/heart
Supported by
The hip joints
Open to
Legs /foundation
Earth /China
Lineage
Foundation sink
To earth
Become still
Immovable
Upper body
Becomes spirit like
Can change
With a thought
Waist is the "Tai Chi”
Without being visible
Daily practice
Is like my waist
Between still/foundation
Moving/Spirit
Changing
If I am lazy
In practice
Look for the answer
In my waist
Oneness
Is having
No intent
No self
Able to
Change with change

With the earth/China
With heaven
Via the Masters
Oneness
Exists
Allows only a few
To join it
Being one
With Unity
Everyone
Has oneness
With earth/gravity
Few with heaven/spirit
Only the worthy
With lineage/China
Oneness
In finding
My center
To stay centered
Be receptive/humble
This state of mind
Is where the new ideas
Spring out


Oneness
Is being
Connected to
Masters of the art
Believe me
Just asked them
They hear
The worthy
The Master
Can guide me
To the oneness
If I am worthy
Oneness
Clear
Calm
Enlightened
Like a newly born rabbit
It is not good
To be known
Or heard
Thru out life
Remain newly born
Every day
Is a new day
Every practice
Is a new practice
Every year
Is a new year
Every idea
Is an epiphany
Do not
Stand out
Rather
Squat inward
A man
Is more than
The sum
Of his mistakes
Quiet!
When Slow Set
Merges
With the lineage
It will become
Full of spirit
It is not wise
To be known
Be an elusive artist  
Creative gesture
Is oneness
Oneness
Of the body
Thru pushing
On the wall
Part of the oneness
Is rollback too
Oneness
Is connection
To the Masters’
Oneness
Gestures cannot
Be clear until
Achieved oneness
Merge spirit/gravity
Results in one chi
Spirit oneness
Is clear
Gravity oneness
Is calm
(Staying in balance)
Push hands
Truly humility
Is the root
Jing/Chi springs
Quiet please
Do not be
A ½ jug of water
Attain oneness
In gestures
They become
Clear
Calm
Creative
They will
Become reproductive
Do not
Boaster

Too much honor
Leads to
Too much intent
Leads to loss
Of balance
A fall
Once fallen
One with the earth/China
Merge with the earth/China
Use earth’s energy
To rise again
Heaven/Masters will guide
Upward
Taoism mentions
Returns
That is return
To being
An animal
An animal again
It is where
I belong
Once an animal again
Senses will be
More acute
Will survive
Tai Chi Chuan
I can hold
Myself up
Use objects
Material things
As a banister
Using other people
Something they will
Hold me up
Sometimes Pull
Me down
Do it on my own
Tai Chi Chuan will give
The balance
Be anchored
In a good gesture
A bad gesture
Is top heavy
Will fall
Biggest tree
Gets
The most wind
Everything
Can be looked at
Either Yin or Yang
Attack or retreat
Good or Bad
Up or down
Be a fulcrum
To differentiate
With just a thought
Change things
With mind
If I can change
My mind
I can change
My body
Oneness
Of body
When expressing
Mentally or physically
Disconnect
From the Masters
I will quit
Tai Chi Chuan
Negate fame
Perhaps

Is the oneness
Simple add oneness
To the 4th dimension
Master is wise
In not teaching
The Non-earnest
Do not be a half
Jug of water
Be full
On the back shelf

Fame is like a bee
It has a song
It has a sting

By removing
Old blockages
Causing the dying
Of old self
Too much
Of anything

Gestures
Depend on c.o.g.

Lifting with legs
Oneness
Is the entire body
Being used
In gestures/ thoughts
Waist

E. Dickinson 19th century poet.
Oneness
Is the connection
To the lineage
Will the blog
Make me shine  
Hope not  
Only those
Who are worthy
Will see/understand it
Go deeper
Into the art
Not higher
Into the ego
Oneness
Is merging
With that which
I am concentrating on
Master
Students/opponents
Art

With universe now
Thanks to

Greatness springs
High
Must be built
Upon the foundation
Of low
10 Trillion cells
Attain oneness
Thru slow set
Grow into applications
Oneness
Something beyond
Conscious movement
Interrupt energy
Spiritual insight
Mystical powers
To obtain
Oneness
Via Slow Set
Relax
Open
Stretch
Bend bones
If the body
Is not elastic
It would crumble
Part of body
That is blocked off
Because of poor form
The spirit
Is built
On the foundation
Of the body
The importance
Of Tai Chi Chuan
Is to open body up
So the energy
Can past thru
Like water
Thru a hose
Water reaches
Very far
How far?
It can evaporate
A Tai Chi Chuan gesture
Reaches far
How far?
It becomes spirited
Other martial arts
Just hit
With the hose
But the water never
Flows thru like
In Tai Chi Chuan
Sky =mind
Earth = body
Spirit = mind and body
As one
Fountains = chi
10,000 creatures = technique
Nature and animals = teachers
Oneness = connection
With Tao = Masters and nature
One with all
Master is one with all
This equals oneness
1 +1 = 1ness
I must become
An infant again
To connect
To the earth
By giving up
To gravity
Infants don’t resist
Their environment
Can change their body
And mind at will
Lineage
Realization of accord
It is always there
Only attention varies
The Master looks
Upon himself
As a straw dog
To the lineage
So should I
Actually
Unbent spring
Is the source
Which greatness
Springs
Oneness
Is becoming
A river
Tao is compared
To water
Compare
Tai Chi Chuan
To a streaming spring
Oneness
Unity
Is being
A novice
Loftiness
Is grounded
With gravity
Adult is based
On childhood
A child thinks
A lot about growing up
An adult thinks
A lot about his youth
Where is the balance
Perhaps it is in humility
Being hollow
Being an adult
Sometimes
A child
Other times
Achieved oneness
Become productive
Able to spring
Into new ideas
Being
In the oneness
Feel the future
In the present
Based
On the past
If Slow set
Gestures
Are not turned
Into application
They would be defunct
If I do not teach
Spread the art
It will
Become extinct
Teaching is
The oneness
When receiving
Taking in chi
Like a balloon
Takes in air
Tai Chi Chuan
Takes in chi
Expanding every cell
Repairs/aligns all
When opponent presses
Feels like a balloon
Returning whatever force
Newton’s 3rd
Reckon
All gestures
Of an opponent  
Teacher depends
On the student
For support
Master
Is contingent
Upon teachers
For their art
Everyone has life
Ahead of them
Future = wisdom
Present = now
Past = foundation
The next gesture (future)
Tai Chi Chuan
Is focused
On the moment
Based on
Previous move
Is oneness
Wisdom
Is doing something
Over and over
Practicing
Until perfected
Ward off
Is being
Full of the oneness
Wisdom
Concentration
Foundation
If the Tai Chi
Gestures
Are not charged
With Jing/Chi
They cease to being

Students
Who do not
Sense the Masters
Presence
Guidance
Mystical powers are
Not studying
Tai Chi Chuan
Connection
To the Masters
Attain the oneness
Become reproductive
The 1000 reason
Not to come to class
All equal extinction
The one reason
To come
Is reproduction
No spontaneous
Applications
Until attain
The oneness
Only then become
Reproductive
If the hub
Of a wheel
Is empty
It can fulfill
Its purpose
Receive the axle
Of awareness
If a vase
Is empty
It can fulfill
Its purpose
By holding
Flourishing idea
A thing of beauty
It has attained
It purpose
If a room empty
It can receive people
Who will think
Of new things
To do with
The hub and vase
10,000 Tai Chi Chuan
