From Sword To Flower (花剑恩仇录)
When I was still studying in secondary school some 30 years
ago, Hong Kong kung fu movies were very gaining popularity and many of the
youths were fans of kung fu. I was one of the fans and I dreamed of becoming a sword immortal (剑仙) one
As I heard
that there was an old Taoist living in a temple beside Lake Garden, so I
started my search and after some efforts, I finally found the old Taoist. Well,
at first this old man denied that he was a ‘sword immortal’ but after much
conversation and persuasions; he finally said to me:
want to master the art of swordsmanship, first you must master the art of
Karate chop. First you should go back to your house and train your wrist power
for 100 days. After that, light an incense stick in a dark room and try to use
a sword to cut the burning joss stick into equal half with the condition that
the incense should remain burning. And after that …”
to what the old man had to say, I figured that that will be over my dead body
to become a sword immortal; as I was thinking of dropping the idea and leave…
The old man
suddenly asked me if I know how to ‘look at flowers’. Well, what kind of
question that was I supposed you might ask? We use our eyes to ‘look’ don’t we?
The old man said. Ordinary folks only concentrate their sights onto the flowers
hence by doing so, they cast their own energy onto the flowers and that is indeed
a waste of energy. The experts who know
the trick look at flowers with half close eyes and hence absorb the essence of
flowers into their body.”
the old man was teaching me how to use essence of flowers to supplement my own
energy and by doing so; I would benefit more on my meditation and Taoist
training. That was the heart teaching of the old man I think.
was not really a joke. When we focus the image of the flowers we see and cast
it onto the back of our brain, the action would stimulate our brains and pituitary
gland ( 脑下垂体) causing
the production of hormone in the maintenance of health. Some occultists believe
that the pituitary gland is where our souls leave and enter our body.
guessed it that a little trick would bring so much benefits? Do try it out and
let me know.
