I’m thinking…

…about Tao


Tao is the treasure-house

the true nature

the secret source of everything

It is the great wealth of those who are awake

the great protector of those still sleeping

If a person seems wicked

do not cast him away ~

Awaken him with your words

Elevate him with your deeds

Requite his injury with your kindness

Do not cast him away

cast away his wickedness

When the emperor is crowned

or the three ministers installed

they receive a gift of jade and horses

But how can this compare

to sitting still and gaining the treasure of Tao

This is why the ancient masters honored the inward path of Tao

Did they not say

“Seek and you will find”?

“Err and you will be forgiven”?

Within, within

This is where the world’s treasure has always been

Safety Energy Lock 19

Issue Number 29, Summer 2000 of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter contains an article about SEL 19.  The article is based on comments received in response to the inquiry: Why is Safety Energy Lock 19 included in the anchor steps of both the Umbilicus and Diaphragm Function Energy flow patterns?

For readers who have taken at least one 5-day Seminar, you will want to look at Text 2. If you haven’t taken a 5-day Seminar as yet, you can look at the Safety Energy Lock Figure in this category. Or I could tell you: SEL 19 is located on the inside of the elbow more on the thumb side, however, since each SEL is a 6-inch diameter sphere, it actually covers that whole 6-inch area of the elbow/upper & lower arm.

Now that you know where SEL 19 is located, we can read what Wayne Hackett wrote in reply to the question.

“Safety Energy Lock 19 is a “one” [1+9=10; 1+0=1] numerologically, and as a one, provides the energies of “unification” and “movement”. As the 6th Depth Breath of Life transforms itself into living matter, Safety Energy Lock 19 instills “authority and leadership” and facilitates the Umbilicus and Diaphragm Function Energies in bringing the blueprint into manifestation. Also, meaning”perfect balance”, Safety Energy Lock 19 lives within the 3rd Depth and supports balance between our Source of Being (6th Depth) and source of body (3rd Depth). It even lives perfectly balanced between Safety Energy Locks 16 through 18 and Safety Energy Locks 20 through 22, thus reminding us that Safety Energy Locks reside where they can most easily accomplish their function. Further, within the 3rd Depth, Safety Energy Lock 19 works with the Mediator to perfectly blend left and right with the center and to keep us in the NOW.”

There are other responses ~ since this is FUN, I’ll continue sharing with my next post!

Thank you, Master Jiro.

Thank you, Mary.

Thank you, David.

Thank you, Wayne.

I’m thinking…

…about Tao


A great state is like a river basin that receives everything flowing into it

It is the place where all things come to rest where all the world is welcomed

The low is greater than the high

The still is greater than the restless

The low country wins over its neighbor

The still female wins over the male

The Sage wants to uplift the people

The people want to follow the Sage

only by being low does this come to be

The Sage bows to the people

The people bow to the Sage

And when they lift up their heads only greatness remains

The Nature of the Safety Energy Locks, Part 3

Phyllis Singer writes about Articulating the Artless Art in Issue Number 29, Summer 2000 of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter:

“Safety Energy Lock

14   IS…     Expanded knowledge of what it takes to sustain myself and maintain equilibrium in life.

15   IS…     Joyousness, light-heartedness and an abundance of laughter.

16   IS…     Feeling transformed, active and flexible.

17   IS…     Relaxation available to me with an ability to foster this quality in others.

18   IS…     Deepened body-awareness with a personality truer to my essence.

19   IS…     Feeling empowered, trusting myself and my leadership.

20   IS…     Experiencing an everlasting connection with nature and the Universe.

21   IS…     Able to identify and let go of worry, finding profound security enveloping me.

22   IS…     A markedly greater balance between receiving and giving in my life, allowing me to feel complete.

23  IS…     In touch with my destiny with awareness of cyclic movement and patterns in life.

24   IS…     Feeling harmonized with an enhanced sense of putting order into chaos.

25   IS…     Enjoying personal sanctuary where I can quietly regenerate spirit, mind and body.

26   IS…     Being fulfilled.

A dictionary meaning for “articulate” is “to give clarity or coherence to” which could also be a definition for Jin Shin Jyutsu. Expressing my experience of Jin Shin Jyutsu through the nature of the Safety Energy Locks has provided an opening for conveying the significance of this powerful Art, as it reveals itself in a life. Articulation this Artless Art through the Safety Energy Locks offers an opportunity for new insights to emerge each time I surrender to the process. I invite you to practice this exercise for yourself in a way that shares and illuminates the meaning of each Safety Energy Lock as IT IS in your life. Experience it again periodically, noting any transformation in your expression. For now, one word sums it up for me ~ GRATITUDE.”

Thank you, Mary.

I’m thinking…

…about Tao


Govern a nation as you would fry a small fish

When Tao is present in the empire

dark spirits lose their power

It’s not that they have no power

it’s that their power can’t harm anyone

When Tao is present

the people enjoy the blessings of Heaven

They find unity

They find peace

What’s this about spirits doing harm?

The Sage is approaching and they are rushing in to sweep his path!

The Nature of Safety Energy Locks, Part 2

Phyllis Singer writes about Articulating the Artless Art in Issue Number 29, Summer 2000 of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter:

“Inherent and essential qualities” is a dictionary definition of “nature”, so why not speak through the nature of the Safety Energy Locks? Since I have been a Jin Shin Jyutsu student I have noticed many improvements in my life:

Safety Energy Lock

1   IS…     More movement with an ability to study fixations and to get beyond them.

2   IS…     Making wiser choices, following my intuitive impulses, and feeling more alive.

3   IS…     Understanding what benefits or harms me with healthier boundaries as to what is allowed to enter or exit my life.

4   IS…     Deepened awareness about managing my life, measuring out time for activity and rest.

5   IS…     Refreshed, able to let go of the old to bring on the new.

6   IS…     Balance, and the discernment to maintain that balance.

7   IS…     Magnified sense of success, victory and order in life.

8   IS…     Feeling strong and at peace, more in tune with the rhythm of the Universe.

9   IS…     More completion in relationships with an ability to use periods in my life instead of commas. Declaring the end so as to lay groundwork for a fresh beginning.

10   IS…     Experiencing abundance in all areas of my life. Feelings of lack give way to a sense of endless prosperity.

11   IS…     Being centered with an ability to let go. Life no longer appears unfair.

12   IS…     More acceptance and tolerance for myself and others.

13   IS…     An opening in the experience of love with an enhanced ability to reproduce my love for others, in others.”
