On the Book of Balance and Harmony

Changeless Change and changing change.

As part of this year's Asian trip, I've decided to seek new insight from The Book of Balance and Harmony, a perenial source of inspiration into the inner design and meaning of the I. I have the standard Cleary edition, worn and a little marked up after 14 years of constant attention Many of my earlier comments in the margin relate to correspondances to the Kan and Li practice as taught in the Mantak Chia's Healing Tao (now Universal Tao). On this re-reading, these relationships certainly still apply however new more direct meanings are now apparent.

It is the time of the winter solstice. The great yin culminates. The first true yang arises. Gather it quickly.
