On Chi- Yin and Yang Chi

Reading:

Another aspect of chi is the Yin Chi and the Yang Chi.

Yang Chi is more refined chi, symbolically described as clear light floating up. The qing yang zhi qi, “Clear Light Yang Chi,” enables you to hear and see clearly.

Yin Chi is the rougher chi, symbolically described as darkness sinking down. The zhou qi, “Murky Chi,” is a Yin Chi because it is heavy, cold, and sinking down. Murky Chi is dirty, and is involved in bodily discharges, such as perspiration.

In a larger sense, Yin Chi and Yang Chi interacting together are the forces which make the bodily cycles keep functioning. An excess or deficit of either Yin Chi or Yang Chi is not good, the two sides should be in balance.

Level 1: Paraphrasing-

State in your own words the meaning of each sentence.

Two elements of chi to consider are the Yin and Yang Chi.

Yang Chi is clean chi and is represented as clear (transparent) light moving gently higher. “Clear Light Yang Chi,” allows you to hear and see clearly.

Yin Chi is filthy chi, and is represented as dirty, heavy, cold, blackness moving lower. “Murky Chi,” allows your body body to clean itself out (sweating).

In the bigger picture, Yin Chi and Yang Chi connect to make the energy that keeps your body running in rhythm, and on course. To much or too little Yin Chi or Yang Chi is not good. Your Yin Chi and Yang Chi must be balanced to be healthy.


Level 2: Explicating-

  1. State the main point.
    1. Yin and Yang Chi connect to make the energy that keeps alive and living in sync.
  2. In other words….
    1. You need equal amounts of Yin and Yang Chi to stay healthy.
  3. For example…
    1. If you don’t go to the bathroom to get rid of the food you eat, or empty your mind of your stinking thinking, you will get sick.
