Yin Yang – reading from classics

You can read a lot about explanation of Yin Yang. Saying Yin is this and Yang is that. Most of the time the explanation is missing why it is like this. Actually the theory is to understand the world or universe or live and its action. If you start to describe something as good you should understand there exist always a opposite. You can describe the night as Yin because you know there is its opposite the day i.e. Yang for example. Same for other things like cold / hot, men / women and so on. Important is to understand that to name something in Yin or Yang the opposite is already included. The Taiji symbol (most people calling it wrongly Yin Yang sign) is showing this understanding very clear. The small spots with its counterpart color within the Yin Yang are showing this deep understanding. If you name something its like one side of a coin it includes the other side of the coin. No good without bad, no happiness without sadness and so on. The Taiji symbol is also showing the dynamic of nature which of course is including our life. Everything is changing to its opposite after it reaches is maximum. Night changes to day life changes to dead one season is changing to the next one are examples of the everlasting processes of the hole universe including our life.

Here some parts of classical texts:

‘When all people in the world know beautiful as beauty, there

appears ugliness; when they know goodness as good, there

appears evil. Therefore by opposing each other existence and

non existence come into being. Difficult and easy form

themselves, long and short are distinct high and low contrast,

sound and voice harmonize front and back emerge.’

Laozi

Out of  Huang Di Nei Jing, the classics of the yellow Emporer:

Huang Di said ‘I hear heaven is yang and earth is yin. The

moon is yin. How are these joined in man (Ling Shu)?’ and

physiology ‘The clear yang forms the skies; the turbid yin the

earth. The earthly energies rise above to form clouds; the

energy of the skies descends as rain. Therefore yang comes from

the upper openings; while turbid yin comes out from the lower

openings. The clear yang develops into the texture of the skin

and the turbid yin runs back into the five Zang (Suwen).

Health preservation and treatment is aimed at establishing

harmony with the universe.

Water the essence of live…

Everybody knows more or less to drink enough per day. The most patients who are coming in my clinic mostly answering:” yes I´m at  least drinking  2-3 liter a day”. But the most do not really understanding why. If you know some facts about water and live you will have some better understanding and to drink water will not only be a mechanical act.

The list will show you the facts about water in % within the human body:

  • brain > 73 %
  • lung > 83 %
  • teeth > 10 %
  • heart > 73 %
  • muscles > 79 %
  • blood > 60 %

With this numbers it should be quite clear why the daily amount of water you taken should be at least 2 liters. You can say the water is like a transporter. The blood by itself is a mix of water with some cellular properties. All the intake of good food, minerals, vitamins etc. are not very helpful if it can´t transported to the place where its needed. And like you see at the above list how essential water is for the human. Is the percentage of water lowering down in the human body the hole functions will be reduced.  The power of muscles, the brain function > concentration, focus etc. will be influenced by drinking to less.

I think with  this information to quench the thirst is becoming more joy because you increasing your liife by keeping the bodily function up. Life and water a pair who belongs together. I for my self starting the day with a class room temperature water and I´m doing the same before  going to bed.

Prost….

True nature…

my first try to write my blog in english so will see how it goes…if its doesn´t fit I gonna change while writing again to my mother tongue hahaha

The “true nature” what does it mean ? Many time reading it in spirituell books or was hearing it at lectures. Example:

Unless you see your true nature , you shouldn´t go around criticizing the goodness of others

Buddha& Lotus

Good and bad are distinct. Cause and effect are clear. All/ most mortals are unaware because of the heaviness of their Karma. They creating their own good and bad as well cause and effect. You can see things positive or negative. Like> the bottle is already half empty > negative or  ahh the bottle is still half full > positive. The Zen master is seeing the bottle and ? is just drinking …. Mind creates the reality for us. The meaning of your reality in this examples is the judgement with emotions. And this is not the reality at all, the bottle don´t cares about your positive or negative thoughts or speech. A bottle is a bottle and flower is just a flower and so on. To see and judge makes life positive or negative if you understand this you will come closer to the ultimate truth. Oneness with constant flow in a deep aware state of mind….so be happy… its on youhuhuhu
