Here’s a video of a fellow at Wudang called the Bee Daoist.
Any comments? I’ll post some of mine after a significant number of post views has shown up so I don’t give anyone preconceptions with my words.
This guy is pretty cool.
i visited him when i was in Wudang a year ago. i asked him what’s the best way to cultivate jing chi shen. and his answer was that it’s like riding a bicicle. once you get the hang of it you don’t think about it too much 😉 …
he lives in cave near the road to purple heaven palace.
hope to see him again someday.
chi and peace…
cool, that reminds me of something that Fong Ha said about effortlessness in Taijiquan practice. He was comparing the effortlessness of the opening movement to the effortlessness of driving a car.
Hmm, when i try to compare them, i guess they kind of mean the same thing. not thinking too much just doing it and feeling comfortable while you’re at it.
peace and chi out
I spent a couple of hours with this guy in his cave near Purple Cloud Temple. There was a waterfall flowing over the entrance to his cave at the time (it may be seasonal). He laughed and said, the water falling down is Nature doing the Microcosmic Orbit for me!
ps. I know I posted at least one photo of the “Bee Daoist” on my China dream pics. I think it was with him giving Cherry Li (my translator) a heart shaped talisman…. michael
He gave me a medallion as well. it is shaped as a hand holding a female goddess head. at first i thaught it was Gwan Yin but than i realized she’s a buddhist goddess. so i wonder which goddess is it? if you have any idea by all means be glad if you could share… 🙂
