" Civilisation is a deception " - A Hermit's Guide to Longevity

Rate this Entry
These Taoist practises don't use the natural world to achieve longevity but i wanted to include them because of their simplicity and usefulness.
All these practises directly affect the body's ability to increase and direct it's electrical activity.

Taoist practises

" Flying the metallic essence behind the elbows "

For this method use the time after the hour midnight and before the hour noon.
This is the time when the chi is produced.
Open your garments, sit properly with the back straightened.
Tighten your fists and clear your mind.
Stretch your body.
After stretching your body, from a seated position
lean back making your chest stick out and your spine curve in.
This opens up the middle passage located about at the centre of your spine.

Now lift your head
this opens up the upper passage at the bottom of your neck.

Now with your hips and from your belly, gradually raise your hips and stretch your body,
making your chest stick out further and spine curve inwards.
This opens up the lower passage at the bottom of your spine.
Hold for about one minute and relax.
Repeat 3 to 4 times.
After lots of practise try to hold the position longer and longer before you relax.
( Your cheeks will be rosy, this is a good sign. )
Eventually being able to hold the position for 10 to 20 minutes.

This practise opens up the upper middle and lower passages, a climax of heat within the body is a sign of the practise working.

After getting the hang of this method your skin will become white and your body light.
This is called returning to youth from old age and is a method for long life and immortality.
If a young person practises this he will not age.
If an old person practises this he will return to youth.

" The way of the life stem and the way of the nature's root "

" The way of the life stem "

During daytime, rub your hands together and make them warm
then hold your hands against your navel.
Gently focus on the heat in the circle of your navel.
Repeat, rubbing your hands together and placing them against your navel.
Gently focus on the accumulating heat in the circle of your navel.
Repeat an infinite number of times.
( If you practised using the sunlight in the previous blog post " Reinforcing the elements, Fire ", this practise will feel very familiar )

" The way of the nature's root "

At night gently press your upper gums with your tongue.
Focus on the sensation of your tongue pressing against your gums.
After a while the feeling of stability within your head will arise, is the only way i can describe it.
You can do this practise all night if you wish.
After a long time you will hear sounds from inside your head and smell a sweet fragrance.

The Science

" Flying the metallic essence behind the elbows " stretches the diaphragm and the spine. Lining up and stretching the nerve clusters in your body.

" The way of the life stem " uses the sensation of accumulating warmth in the navel to increase electrical activity to the nerve clusters in your belly.

" The way of the nature's root " uses the sensation of your tongue pressing against your upper gums to increase the sensitivity of your trigeminal nerve.
