Brief Overviews:

Tao General

This section contains a brief information relating to Tao, and when one thinks that according to Lao Tzu, it is impossible to describe the Tao, then this is by definition wrong!
However I have tried to include introductions to a number of subjects that are related to this topic. Including - Ying Yang, Feng-Shui and Tai Chi. I also hope to include a page on Chi at a later date.


Introduction to the Tao

This section contains both a primer, (understanding the Tao), and an introduction to the Tao.

Both of these are also available as more detailed pdf files for you to download:-

  1. Understanding the Tao pdf
  2. The Tao an Introduction pdf

Yin Yang

A brief introduction to the principles of Yin Yang, and why you should NOT assign the female or male principles to that specific gender, this is a common mistake of many who have simply heard or read that one is female and the other male.

The yin-yang symbol is probably one of the most used and misused symbols that has become popular in the western world to symbolize oneness.

Feng-Shui

Many books have sentences similar to the following: -
Once you have found a suitable location, made sure you are facing a supportive direction, you can then turn your attention to the interior!!! Are these writers serious?

In the two articles you will find a short overview of the principles of Feng Shui, and the home.

I will be incorporating some, (if not many) of the feng shui principles in the 'Lifestyles' section.

Tai Chi

The aim of Tai Chi is to foster a calm and tranquil mind, focusing on the movements and exercising control over ones self.

Tai Chi movements have their origins in the martial arts, and practicing Tai Chi does have some martial art applications.
For many practitioners the focus in practicing Tai chi is not first and foremost martial art orientated, but a meditative exercise for the body, for others the combat aspects of Tai Chi are of interest.

Feng-Shui Pt 3.

The simplest ‘complete’ system for Feng-Shui will incorporate the following:-

The Bagua:

Baua Download you own Bagua as PDF file (196kb).

This divides the home/room into nine different zones. Each zone represents a different aspect of life or task, examples of these are career, partnership and children, where the defined bagua zone in the home/room will mirror how one the specific task manages, (is the zone dark or light, tidy or untidy?). With the help of the bagua, it is possible to enhance just a specific aspect of ones life, (should you wish to do so), though without improving other aspects the result may be negligible.

The five elements:

These are Fire, earth (as in soil), Metal, Water and Wood, the compass directions (North, South, East and West), and colo(u)r and shape. They also represent the organs and emotions, and are therefore important in health and emotional problems. Elements can enhance one another or block each other. A conscious choice of color, form, and material can bring harmony between the elements.

The Kua-Number:

Is worked out from the birth year. From this comes the individual’s four directions of power (no, it has nothing to do with magic, or any such thing). One should try to place oneself as often as possible be it at work, sitting or sleeping, in this direction. This helps the health, success and happiness.
Kua number chart download is in preperation.
