70

70

MY words are very easy to understand, and very
 easy to practice:
But the world cannot understand them, nor practice
 them.
My words have an Ancestor.
My deeds have a Lord.
The people have no knowledge of this.
Therefore, they have no knowledge of me.
The fewer persons know me,
The nobler are they that follow me.
Therefore, the Sage wears coarse clothes,
While keeping the jade in his bosom

Translated by John C. H. Wu
Interpretation by Bill Bernsen

FAITH


Understand
Live
Via this poem
The rarer students
Nobler the Master
Rare is uncommon
This poem
Is the reason
So few get the art
History/lineage
Oneness
With the masters
Masters do not
Obfuscate knowledge
Mystify/muddle moves
Of the art
Must be connected
To the Masters
To hear
Simple words
Few people
Are called
Even fewer understand
The one that does
Understand
Must pass it on
To the worthy
All gestures
Have an ancestry
That is Slow Set
The words are easy
To understand
But very difficult
To hear if
Not connected
To the lineage
The gestures
Are easy
To do
But few
Put their mind/heart
Into them
Pedigree of practice
All the practice
That came before me
Is part of me  
Adding to lineage
Carry jade/Jing
In sternum/sacrum
Jade = Jing
My gestures
Have an ancestor
The previous practice
Withdrawal/apprehension
Sinking/draining
Gathering =rollback
Advancing/Projecting/proceeding = press
Tai Chi Chuan
Is a rotating fulcrum
Also known as a hub
Ancestors
Are watching
The problematic part
Is to bond
To the Master
By taking to heart
The art
Masters
Are very
Discriminating
Ancestors
Will pass it on
To whoever
Deserves it
Listen
To the Masters
Inside me
Each time
A gesture
Is made
A new cosmos
Is created
Do students have
The Masters pix
On display
When students
Practice
To contribute
Master chi
They have arrived
When they refer
To the Master
By full name
Never leaving off
The title Master
They are connected
When they enter
A room prior
To the Master
They are alert
If Master sits
With his back
To the room
The student
Faces the room
With a watchful eye
Truly trusted/alert
To the
Surroundings
When the correction
Comes
From the Master
From afar
In time and space
12000 miles/700 years
Or outside
His window
Watching a bird and snake
Confront each other
The connection
To the Masters
Not fame and fortune
Bestowing the art
Those that have virtue
Are allowed
To understand
Masters
Watch for signs
Of virtue
Sometimes test
A student’s virtue
Thru good and bad
Act/instruction
May give me a sudden
Burst of power
Watch the reaction
Past the test
By not doing
It again or become
Obsessed
With the power
Pushing everyone
The Masters
Will make
A sudden repair
Inside my body
Hip joint pain
To see if I quit
Because of the pain
Master cannot loose
He has over 500 years
Of knowledge/practice
Within him
Why would he
Hold back anything
From a sincere student
If he does hold back
It is just another test
Masters’ instruction
Is very easy
To understand/practice  
If I am worthy
Students
Do not know
Therefore they
Do not practice
Hence
Do not understand
My art
Also has a lineage
I must be connected too
It needs
To express itself
Practice means
Creating too
Most students
Don’t understand
That practice is
Also creating
Tap
Into the lineage
Energy
Then energy
Will be constant
Add to this constant
Results in unlimited energy
What it takes to create
Proof of lineage
Connection
Is creativity
Few understand
The importance
Of Kow Tow
To the art
Kow tow
Is total support
Of the art
Kow Tow is criteria
For attending class
Know the lineage
Negate fame/fortune
Gestures
Start at center
Where my body/soul met
Masters speaking!
Hide
Center/self
Master’s
Lesson
Don’t advertise
Masters
Tai Chi Chuan
Has a history
A lineage
With those who are worthy
The art has a future
All the above words
Have ancestors
Gestures
Are connected
To the earth/Masters
Only the worthy
Gestures appear
Only worthy
Will understand
See the jade
In gestures
Only
If I have jade
In my heart
Scarcer students
Detect Master
Tai Chi Chuan
Is not
For everyone
All classes
Have  
The lineage
Corrections have
Their heredity
People who
Can’t understand
This
Can’t understand
The art
Students
Of virtuous
Character
Aptitude/compassion
Hesitancy
To convey corrections
Comes from the Masters
Not from the teacher
Must be worthy
To connect to
Masters
Keep this treasure
In the heart
Connection
To the Masters!
My blog is written
By the Masters
Thru me
I am their conduit
Tai Chi Chuan
Takes a long time
Heartfelt gestures
From Masters
Only if worthy
Master can see if heart
Is into it
If yes
One is unable
To quit
Chi is like
White blood cells
That goes
After illness/injury
Masters words
Are reaching me
And correcting me
If I listening
I am constantly returning
To the beginning
Of Tai Chi Chuan
Every time I learn
Some new
Or try to teach
A new form
I am returning
To slow set
Must be connected
To a express gesture
I share
The integrity
Of lineage
If laughed
At sometimes
On the right track
Some laugh
With excitement
Some laugh because
They think
Fool
Master wants
To give us
This jade
But few hearts
Are open
To receiving it
If I have it
Those worthy
Will comprehend it
Understand it
My body
Must be the host
For the guests Masters
If I understand
But those around me don’t
Then there is conflict
Must become part
Of the lineage
To understand
Must understand
To become part
Of the lineage
Which comes first?
Cannot force people
Thru conflict
To understand
Just merge
With it
Worthy will see it
Poor demo
Is a way
To hide
The Chinese treasure
Few will see it
Hidden in my breast
Master does
Only relate
To those
Who understand
Do no give up
On others
Just hide
My jade
They will find it
If they are suppose too
None listen
None understand
Note the fools
Important
Is the history
Of Tai Chi Chuan
Reeling silk
With the past
Know teacher’s teacher
And his teacher
All the way backs
To the
Beginning
Otherwise not reeling silk
With the past
Learn the form
Until sensitivity
Is to the point of feeling
Master’s presence
During practice
This continues until
Can sense all the Masters
In the lineage
To the beginning
Of the art
Masters will watch
Will actually
Make corrections
This only happens
If I am reeling silk
With the past
Many times
During my education
In Tai Chi Chuan
I have been tempted
To divert
Into other areas
Whether martial or civil
If I do break
The silk
Masters will no longer
Direct me
Just remember
Wherever
The silk broke
Is the place I must return to  
To continue practicing
With the Masters
Masters are
Very forgiving
When I do break
And want to return
They will accept me back
If I am virtuous
For they went thru
The same thing
In their training
I am going
In the right direction
If I am constantly
Returning to
The beginning moves
Because everything
Starts
At the beginning gesture
When I first start
Reeling silk
First move
Of slow set
Is the closest
To perfection and
Always return to it
It is also how
To reach back
And bring
All the knowledge
Of Tai Chi Chuan
Connecting
The Masters spirits
Thru me and down
To the earth/China
The ground
Is the one place
The dead Masters’ spirit
Cannot reach
Without a conduit body
The Masters
Must do Tai Chi
Chuan thru
A live person
Strengthening the silk
So later it will not break
The student
That never leaves
His present teacher
To become
Independent thinker
Are not adding
Anything-new
To the history
Of Tai Chi Chuan
Hence
This is part
Of the evolution
Of Tai Chi Chuan
In addition
While away
From the teacher
More questions
Are raised
Regarding practice
These questions
Are usually
At a higher level
Because they are ones
Cannot easily answered
Reach the highest level
Of Tai Chi Chuan
When the answers
Come from the lineage
It gets to a point
Of answering questions
Of students not
In my presents
Not with them
When students mention this
It is a very high level
I have joined
The lineage
Oral instructions
Are easily understood
Reviewed thru practice
Teachings
Have a lineage
Technique to Master
But
It is because
They don’t listen
They don’t understand    
Few people take up
The art
I am
Important
To the art
Because I understand
Masters
Are watching
Over students
Deciding who
Will understand
Who will leave
One must translate
The instructions
Even if they
Don’t speak Chinese
The Masters
Don’t speak English
How is this it
The worthy understand
There is a pedigree
During practice
Lineage
Must be
Honored/respected
Practices
Foundation
But this does
Not get them
To understand
They are not worthy
I own
A Chinese treasure
Because I am worthy
And not wealthy   
First I receive it
From the Master
Then it becomes constant
Later teach
In class only
Finally whatever
I do/say
It is from the Masters
Few understand me
Take the time
To look beyond
The clothes
See the Jade
In their breast
Be able
To feel their heart
Thru the hand
To heart handshake
If they join
My class
They feel something
Always honor/respect
The Master
His teaching
Has a source
Once understood
Then teach
The knowledge
Must easily
Enter me
No physical or mental
Blockage
Once the flow starts
It will always be there
Only the people
Who understand
Tao Te Ching #70
Will continue
In Tai Chi Chuan


The lineage
Speaking thru me
What Lao Tzu wrote
Was the Tao
Speaking thru him
Not all understood
Or will ever understand
Keep the ideas
In heart
They will multiply
It is called
Creativity
The more knowledge
I have the stronger
I must be
The more students
I have
The stronger
I must be
My art
Has a lineage
I must be connected
It needs
To express itself
Practice means
Creating too
Tap
Into the lineage energy
Then energy
Will be constant
Proof of lineage
Connection
Is creativity
Few connect!
Sometimes
Coarse words
To test
Fewer students
People being warded off
By Masters
Including friends, family and foes
Reason for poor demos
Masters
Know
Few are worthy
Masters
Me and poor demos
Practice listening
To energy/sixth sense
