The Concept of Liang Yi – Internal Kung Fu

Learn to Move like a Dragon, Sit like a Tiger, and Yield like Lighting, Yin and Yang united.

Liang Yi, also known as Tai Yi or Tai Chi Long Fist, is a Wu Dang Internal Kung Fu (Nei Jia Chuan) style. It is a technique to train hands, eyes, body, foot work and explosive power (Hun Yuan Jin) for internal martial artists. Characteristically it combines fast and slow, soft and hard movements and teaches the student to move like a dragon, sit like a tiger, and yield like lighting. It applies softness to overcome hardness, stillness to restrict motion, following the opponent's energy to strike back. It is a very practical self-defense art. All Wu Dang martial artists are required to practice Liang Yi.

Meditation

Meditation to many around the world consists of quieting the mind, sitting still, regulating the breathe and visualizing a happy thought, all in the effort to find peace and tranquility to entertain the spirit. Although meditation can bring a sense of peace, the true value of this practice is rarely understood. Meditation has the ability to not only regulate and harmonize the body, mind and spirit but it can also prevent and cure disease to achieve healthy longevity and, at its highest level, direct one into the portal of immortality.

Meditation has many benefits, but in particular three stand out:

The Legend of Zhen Wu



One day the Jade Emperor was in heaven when all of a sudden he saw, far away, below the clouds, five colored beams of light shooting up from earth to heaven.  He was very surprised and asked his prime minister “What is this?  Can you go take a look?”  The prime minister went to the edge of the clouds, and looked down to the earth.  He came back and reported: “The five streams of light come from a golden tree on Wu Dang Mountain in China.  They are the spirits of the five elements.  When they beam up the power of harmony is shooting straight through the universe all the way to heaven.”

"Wow," the Jade Emperor said, “I have all the treasure of the universe, but I’ve never seen this light.  I should go look at that.”  At that moment, ego and desire stirred in his chest, one of his 99 souls separated from him and went into a Queen’s belly to become a baby.  The Queen's baby was Prince of the pure happiness kingdom.  He was very powerful and very smart.  He knew all the books, wrote poems, and was interested in alchemy.  At 14 years old, the Prince didn’t want to become the next ruler of the kingdom.  So he rode off to Wu Dang Mountain to cultivate alchemy and immortality.  He had heard that Wu Dang was mystical and knew that Wu Dang had this golden tree.  When the Prince saw the beautiful and powerful tree and saw the light beaming from it, he got off his horse and started to kneel down to pray to the tree.  But the Prince's soul was the Jade Emperor's and when the Five Elements in the Tree saw that the Jade Emperor had come to kneel down they were scared and ran off to the edges of the universe as they could not have him kneel to them. They disappeared to the five corners of the universe.

Reflections on Happiness (2 of 3)

There are so many people who make $50,000 per year, $100,000 per year, $1,000,000 per year, and they have all this stuff, and they’re just not happy.  The problem is that they have not achieved enough spiritual enlightenment to understand philosophically or spiritually what “enough is enough” means to them.  Because they measure the value of their life by how much they have, and they set their goals so high, they have created a goal that is unrealistic to achieve in the short term.  There’s the logic, and people track on that logic.  They just aren’t satisfied with the short term goal or they set their goal beyond their ability and they are not able to understand that enough is enough.
