Based on my own experience and from what I learned from
others, to take over the reigns of control in one ´s own life is
to simultaneously achieve the mastery of one ´s own body & the mind.
For this purpose theories are
relatively unimportant. What matters most is the
recognition of a constant experiential learning that will
again enable a new habitual pattern to take place.
Chinese Medicine, Daoist Medicine, the Daoist Arts, &
other ancient Systems are actually
just naked truths & are mere universal reminders about the
human prowess and intellectual power. Actually, it is
the implicit &
expressed simplicity of all these ancient rites that makes them
suitable to be used as tools in one ´s own self recovery.
However, these simple techniques can only come alive and be
effective in daily life with unquestioned sincerityy. For chronic and
congenital conditions it will often entail doing away with
excessive personal pursuits.
The goal is to build new
neural patterns to replace the old & dangerous one ´s in
case of chronic states. To stop
the danger of self inflicted bodily and mental stress, it is
not rationality, neither methodology that counts, but only the able & successfull implementation of
lifestyle changes in one ´s own daily life.
