Text 2, the Manifestation – Twelve Body Function Energy, Part 3
For the past few weeks we have been learning about the bridge between Text 1 and Text 2, the unmanifest to the manifest. Looking at Text 2, page 4, we read about Combining Time and Place of Twelve Body Function Energy. Ian Harris addresses this topic in issue Number 41, Summer 2003, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter. This is available at http://www.jsjinc.net.
Continuing with Part 3:
“Let’s look at Item No. 3. “Kidney (water) and Heart (fire) struggle for control and whichever overcomes the other will in time cause disharmony…” Why is kidney water? 4th Depth is water element and Kidney is the sign Scorpio which is also water. Why is heart fire? 5th Depth is fire element and Heart is the sign Leo which is also fire.
So, we have a dramatic struggle between fire and water or simply between left and right. If left and right is not in harmony, the Surface, Middle and Deep Function energy will not be able to combine at the Main Central Vertical Universal Harmonizing Energy, but will be pulled to the left or right, the past or present, the energy of generation or energy of regeneration, etc. We need to take care of left and right, descending and ascending, etc. so that the twelve body energy can function.
When either fire of water (or left or right, etc.) overcomes the other, then we have the disharmonies spoken about in No. 5a, b and c on page 4. It says, “If there is disharmony in left or right body function energy, two of three depth function energy will intermingle, cause variations and result in disharmony.” So…two of which three depths? Again 2nd, 5th and 6th Depths (left side) or 1st, 3rd and 4th Depths (right side). If either side is in disharmony then 2 of those 3 Depths may intermingle. Then we are told, 5a~intermingling with Surface Function (Bustline), coughing results. 5b~intermingling with Middle Function (Waistline), nausea results. 5c~intermingling with Deep Function (Hipline), discomfort results. We can then use 13, 14 or 15 respectively to help in these situations.
Item Nos. 6, 7 and 8 on this page are pretty direct. No. 6 talks about the disharmony occurring at the Deep Function so hipline or Safety Energy Lock 15 will help. No. 7 occurs at the Middle Function so we go to our 14 for help. No. 8 occurs at the Surface so we go to our 13 for help.
As will all facets of this Art, there is much more to ponder and discuss on this topic. I am also guessing many more questions arise. However, I think this is at least a beginning of what we can extract from this page. I have spent entire days going over this material and more, related to this page, in a special topic class. I’ve seen students getting really excited (as am I) going over all this basic material and getting a really deeper understanding and awareness of this page and Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy in general. I look forward to further explorations and discoveries. I hope these thoughts about Text 2, page 4 provide a window (number 4) for everyone who may also be interested in further explorations.”
