Mindful Monday

With a stable mind at your core, 

With the eyes and ears acute and clear,

And with the four limbs firm and fixed,

You can thereby make a lodging place for the vital essence.

When we clarify and understand our senses, and

We reach a settled heart.

A settled heart allows us to become alive, full of spirit and zest, or

Refined qi.
