Re: Ki to the Highway

I got a much clearer view about what qi is and how qi can be "practiced" and experienced when I started to read about the Chinese internal arts like nei gong or tai chi.
There is a clear nomenclature, definitions, a coherent system which connects the understanding of qi with the human body and the human mind. qi is not something mystique or esoteric here, but something "down to earth". (... or up to heaven ...)
And by using the forms of qi gong for example, there can be experienced certain effects and develpment.

For me it is important that qi is not something supernatural or esoteric or non-physical ... but is somthing that is part of our body, our mind, connects both of them.
