With the destruction of the forests of the world, so too, is oxygen, the very essence of what supports our lives, being destroyed. Acid rain is falling from the sky. Every day we eat food full of pesticides and other chemicals. The air we breathe is polluted by the burning of fossil fuels. We are surrounded by an excessive amount of electro-magnetic waves.
Nowadays, the Japanese medical world is extremely partial to Western medicine. The idea that the human body is a microcosm originating from and existing within the macrocosm of the universe is completely disregarded. The body is not thought of as an organic whole so any diseased part is treated as if it were not linked to the rest of the body.
To my way of thinking, it is necessary that people facing sickness must begin to revise their way of thinking. In order for a successful recovery, whatever the sickness, they must begin to think positively in terms of their inherent ability to recover by the power of the spirit within themselves. By practicing Qigong, the energy of the universe and nature is directed to the diseased area to restore normal functioning. 'Remote Vibrational Revision Therapy' is also used. By receiving this power from the universe people begin to see that longed - for balance and happiness are possible. This is very reassuring.
There is a saying, 'By the power of Qi thousands of people can become famous physicians'. Qigong gives us the ability to maintain a healthy life, avoid sickness, fulfill our destinies, enjoy our lives to the fullest and build greater resilience against the manmade pathogenic influences in our environment and the personal stresses of our daily lives that cause Qi to stagnate.
Life energy, the light of Qi, shines from within and without us. 'From Heaven, Earth, the Universe and Nature we receive the light of Qi'.
