I’m thinking…

…about Tao

Tao gives life to the one

The one gives life to the two

The two give life to the three

The three give life to ten thousand things

All beings support yin and embrace yang and the interplay of these two forces fills the universe

Yet only at the still-point, between the breathing in and the breathing out, can one capture these two in perfect harmony

People suffer at the thought of being without parents, without food, or without worth

Yet this is the very way that kings and lords once described themselves

Who knows what fate may bring ~

one day your loss may be your fortune

one day your fortune may be your loss

The age-old lesson that others teach, I also teach ~

“As you plant, so you reap”

“As you live, so you die”

Know this to be the foundation of my teachings

All About Mary (Book 3:2:8)

Mary wrote 3 Self-Help Jin Shin Jyutsu Textbooks. It was her passion that people should know how to help themselves.

With the permission of Mary’s son, David Burmeister, I will share some basic information from those books; the very same books I use when I am teaching a Self-Help class.

I strongly suggest that the reader consider purchasing the three textbooks and implement the recommended flows on a daily basis. You will find all three books at http://www.jsjinc.net.

Today we’ll continue our review of Introducing JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS. (Continued) KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS BOOK III.

FINGERS AND TOES!

Mary says: “The journey lies within Myself to seek that which has no beginning or ending. Exhale all skepticisms, attitudes, and inhale joy, laughter, happiness in abundance. Continue SMILING and exhaling.”

FINGERS AND TOES! They are the keys to Know Myself BE IT IS, IS. In the Physio-Philosophy, awareness of Myself (the roots); in the Physio-Psychology, understanding of Myself (the trunk); Physio-Physiology, the simple application of technique (the fruits) becomes available to Myself. Just as it is simple, IT IS FUN (Fulfilling, Understanding, No-thing).

If one is in disbelief, SMILE and hold (jumper cable) INDEX FINGER. Drop the shoulders into the BIG TOES. Keep SMILING. Exhale, unload all the “archaeological” garbage, dirt, dust and greasy grime, from the head into the BIG TOES.

Continue SMILING, Inhale. Receive the purified revitalizing, renewing energy from the BIG TOES to the top of the head. In repeating this for a few exhalings, or if time permits, thirty-six exhalings, one begins to SEE the simplicity and the fun in the holding (jumper cabling) FINGERS and TOES.

WHY? Naturally, one always wants to know the WHY of the how-to. This is precisely the WHY of the birth of this FUN book.

Disbelief is simply FEAR. SMILE. Drop the shoulders, exhale and BE.

2.  HANDS AND FEET AS JUMPER CABLES

Page 8 describes the use of the palms to influence the various activities of the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy Flow.

1.  When one cuts or injures oneself and bleeding results, apply the RIGHT palm, thumb, finger or fingers (palm side) on the bleeding area and the LEFT palm, thumb, finger or fingers (palm side) overt the RIGHT palm, thumb, finger or fingers. This hold (jumper cable) aids in stopping the bleeding. This jumper cable position aids hernia type conditions. This hold (jumper cable) aids healing through allowing the energy flow function to close wounds.

2.  When one needs to aid in releasing a sliver, or to enable a pimple to come to a “head”, reverse the above placement of the hands, i.e. RIGHT hand over the LEFT hand. This hold (jumper cable) aids the energy flow function to push or pull out the obstruction

(ASIDE: I was trained as an EMT and to help remember which palm, we would say, “RIGHT on red, LEFT to lift”. We also were taught to say, “RIGHTY-tighty; LEFTY-loosey” when working with oxygen tanks. My plumber says that, too! …a UNIVERSAL thing?)

3.  When one is burned by touching hot objects or staying in the sun too long, palming the area of the burn can relieve the pain and may even prevent blistering and scarring…RIGHT palm over LEFT.

4.  When one falls and “skins” one’s knees or any part of the body, one can aid the healing process by palming the area of injury…one palm or both palms side-by-side.

(ASIDE: when I was a youngster, I was always falling out of trees, falling off my bicycle and otherwise injuring my knees: scrapes, cuts…I didn’t know anything about Jin Shin Jyutsu and was not an EMT, but my right palm flew to my cut/scrape and left hand covered it while I cried out for Mommy! Our bodies are wonderfully created. They know how to care for themselves. We instinctively know what to do. It is good in my old (er) age to have an awakening of the awareness and understanding of these dynamic energy functions!)

I’m thinking…

…about Tao

When the best seeker hears of Tao he strives with great effort to know it

When an average seeker hears of Tao he thinks of it now and again

When the poorest seeker hears of Tao he laughs out loud

Tao is always becoming what we have need for it to beome

If it could not do this it would not be Tao

There is an old saying,

The clear way seems clouded

The straight way seems crooked

The sure way seems unsteady

The greatest power seems weak

The purest white seems tainted

The abundant seems shaky

The certain seems false

The Great Square has no corners

The Great Vessel is never filled

A beginner may be clumsy but after practice ~ what talent!

A large drum may sit silently but when banged ~ what noise!

Tao lies hidden yet it alone is the glorious light of this world

2.  HANDS AND FEET AS JUMPER CABLES

Page 6 is an illustration showing the flow pattern for the body jumper cable function. The reader would benefit from owning the book and having the detail to review over and over, but I will try to explain my understanding.

In Jin Shin Jyutsu, the human figure is different from the medical anatomy figure we see that shows arms at the side. The Jin Shin Jyutsu energy flow figure is with arms upraised, as Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. I can imagine a figure “8”, or infinity symbol.

Imagine your torso as “I am the Star”. Energy flows down the back of the LEFT arm and up the front of the LEFT arm. Energy flows up the back of the RIGHT arm and down the front of the RIGHT arm. Energy flows down the back of the LEFT leg and up the front of the LEFT leg. Energy flows up the back of the RIGHT leg and down the front of the RIGHT leg. This FLOW PATTERN connects fingers and toes!

a.  The flow pattern or direction of energy flow in the right arm and right leg is the same.

b.  The flow pattern or direction of energy flow in the left arm and left leg is the same.

c.  The flow pattern or direction of energy flow in the right arm and leg is opposite to that of the left arm and leg.

d.  This awareness and understanding of the energy flow pattern of the jumper cable function will enable one to understand the  simple usage of the palms. We will look at 4 palm function energy flows next time.

I’m thinking…

…about Tao

The movement of Tao is to return

The way of Tao is to yield

Heaven, Earth, and all things are born of the existent world

The existent world is born of the nothingness of Tao

2.  HANDS AND FEET AS JUMPER CABLES

We continue to explore the fascinating experiences through the awareness and understanding of the relationships of HANDS and FEET.

(Jiro Murai said to me (Mary) over thirty years ago: “In time you will know the non-secret secret of the power that is in the awareness and understanding of the thumbs and fingers. All disharmonies can be harmonized through them.”)

KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS. ~ FUN

The awareness and understanding of the dynamic functions of the HANDS and FEET are exciting. They are the JUMPER CABLES.

Jumper cabling (holding) fingers and palms as well as toes and soles of feet directly and indirectly influences all of the various activities of the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy Flow. This harmonizing energy flow controls all of the various functions of the organs as well as affecting physical, mental and spiritual harmony.

Are you using, being, the jumper cable? Are you your own testimony? Are you using, being, the jumper cable daily for the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy Flow? (See previous posts from Self-Help Book I, pages 15-17)

The Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy Flow is the Source of Life Force Energy for the body. Without it the body itself is inert. It is the harmonizer for all body functions, the renewing, the maintenance, the sustaining ~ all that is necessary for the harmonious function of the body in six simple steps.

*******

Mary says: “Isn’t it simple and FUN? No rules and regulations. Let us not FEAR simplicity. Enjoy it and be one’s own testimony. Simple is FUN.”

It is only natural to be in disbelief, when one hears anything unorthodox, or that which sounds TOO simple. A friend has said: “Jin Shin Jyutsu is not simply complicated. IT IS complicatedly simple.” Therefore, let us continue to LISTEN and SEE and not be trapped by reactions to actions and past experiences. Know Myself BE IT (Infinite Truth), IS (Infinite Self), IS (Impersonal, no attitude, Self).

Next time we will continue our review of FUN with FINGERS and TOES Physio-Philosophy (Nature-Effortless Reality), page 6.

Thank you, Mary.

JIN SHIN JYUTSU IS. – the Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF is not intended to be a substitute for regular medical attention by the recognized medical authorities.

I’m thinking…

…about Tao

From ancient times till now the One has been the source of all attainments

By realizing the One

Heaven becomes clear, Earth becomes still

spirits gain power and hearts fill up with joy

By realizing the One

kings and lords become instruments of peace and all creatures live joyfully upon this earth

Without the One

Heave has no clarity and would crack

Earth has no peace and would crumble

spirits have no power and would lose their charm

Without the One

hearts would dry up, empires would fall, all things would go lifelessly upon this earth

Long ago kings and lords called themselves “orphaned”, “lonely”, and “unworthy”

What honor can there be without humility?

What heights can be reached without being low?

The pieces of a chariot are useless unless they work in accordance with the whole

A man’s life brings nothing unless he lives in accordance with the whole universe

Playing one’s part in accordance with the universe is true humility

So whether you’re a gem in the royal court or a stone on the common path

If you accept your part with humility the glory of the universe will be yours
