I’m thinking…

…about the Tao

The inner is foundation of the outer

The sill is master of the restless

The Sage travels all day yet never leaves his inner treasure

Though the views are captivating and beg attention he remains calm and uninvolved

Tell me, does the lord of a great empire go out begging for rice?

One who seeks his treasure in the outer world is cut off from his own roots

Without roots, he becomes restless

Being restless, his mind is weak

And with a mind such as this he loses all command below Heaven

 

…Verse 26 from “Tao Te Ching”

Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star
ISBN: 978-158542-618-8

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, the “still” is at Safety Energy Lock 7 ~ the instant the exhale becomes the inhale. You might want to try to BE that “still”. Slowly exhale a conscious breath through your nostrils and follow the exhale down the front to your great toe (SEL 7). Here is “still”. Now consciously and slowly inhale through your nostrils from your great toe up the back to the next exhale.
