Qi Gossip Re: Aboriginal Medicine Women -- "Women's Business"!

as an example of immersing yourself in the experience of another

talk was given in China in the late 1990s, to a Chinese audience,
recorded with a translator speaking in English at the same time as
Master Li spoke in Chinese. Master Li's lectures focus on spiritual
and enlightenment traditions from the thousands of years of history of
Greater China -- Tantrism, Taoism, Buddhism -- making no reference at
all to Western and other religious traditions. thus for most
Westerners, it is an immensely rich vein of awakening. Master Li's
Falun Dafa is unenlightened as to the feminine and the global, and to
living nature, the true divinity -- yet it does serve as a major
stepping stone of enlightenment for most of the Western World who are
still lost in the sickness of their own provincial AND patriarchal AND
'ecocide-all' cult programming.
The Gossip of Qi, Abstracted from a talk by Li Hongzhi
When speaking of stealing qi [chaotic or mortal energy], some people
will look pale as if a tiger was mentioned, and they will be too
scared to practice qigong. Because of gossip about the phenomena of
cultivation insanity, stealing qi, an so on, in the community of
cultivators many people are to frightened to practice qigong or
approach qigong. If it were not for these views, perhaps more people
would be practicing qigong. Yet there are qigong masters with poor
xinxing [heartmind nature, moral character] who specially teach these
things. That makes the community of cultivators quite chaotic.
Actually, it is not as terrible as they have described. We have said
that qi is only qi, although you may call it the "mixed primary qi" or
the this qi or that qi. As long as a person's body has qi, they are at
the level of healing and pre-fitness and are not yet a practitioner.
As long as they have qi, it means that their body has not yet been
highly purified and so still has pathogenic qi -- this is for sure.
The person who steals qi is also at the level of qi. Among our
practitioners, who would want that impure qi? The qi in a
non-practitioner's body is rather impure, though it can become
brighter through qigong practice. So the place of an illness will show
a very big cluster of black substance [black karma]. By continuing the
practice, if the person has indeed healed the illness and become fit,
their qi will gradually turn yellow. If they keep practicing further,
the illness will really be cured, and their qi will disappear as well.
They will enter the state of the Milky-White Body.
That is to say, if one has qi, one still has illnesses. We are
practitioners -- what do we need qi for in the practice? Our own
bodies need to be purified. Why should we need that impure qi? We
definitely do not need it. A person who wants qi is still at the level
of qi. Being at that level of qi, they cannot distinguish good qi from
bad qi -- they do not have that ability. The genuine qi in your body's
dantian cannot be taken away by the poor qigong 'masters' since that
primal qi can only be removed by someone with high level abilities. As
for the impure qi in your body, let them steal it -- it is not a big
deal. During practice, if I want to fill myself with qi, just by
giving it a thought, my belly will be full of it shortly.
The Tao School [Immortal School] teaches the standing exercise of
Tianzi Zhuang while the Buddha School [Mortal School] teaches pouring
qi into the top of the head. There is a lot of qi in the universe for
you to fill yourself with every day. With the laogong point and the
baihui point open, you may fill yourself up with qi through your hands
while focusing on dantian [dan, energy cluster. tian, field. the
location of the dantian is in the lower abdomen.] You will be full of
it in a while. No matter how much you are filled with qi, what use
does it have? When some people have practiced qi a lot, their fingers
and bodies feel like they are swollen. When others walk up to such a
person, they will feel a field around them. "Wow, you've really
practiced well." I would say that it is nothing. Where's your gong? It
is still a practice of qi, which cannot replaced gong no matter how
much qi one has. What does one accumulate qi for? At this level,
without any fundamental change, qi is still not gong. No matter how
much qi you have stolen, you are still nothing but a big bag of qi.
What use does it have? It is not yet transformed into gong [harmonious
or immortal energy, heavenly spirit.] So what should you be afraid of?
Let them steal the qi if they really want to.
Think about it everyone. If your body has qi, it has illness. Then,
when a person steals your qi, aren't they stealing your pathogenic qi
as well? They cannot differentiate those things at all, since one who
wants qi is also at the level of qi and will not have any
capabilities. A person who has gong does not want qi -- that is for
sure. If you do not believe it, we can conduct an experiment. If a
person really wants to steal your qi, you can just stand there and let
them steal it. You can focus your mind on filling your body with qi
from the universe while they are stealing your qi behind you. You will
see what a good deal it is, as it will help you speed up your body
purification, and you will not have to fill up and discharge qi from
your own body. Because they have a bad intention, and stolen something
from another, though they have stolen something that is not good they
have committed a deed which loses de [virtue]. Therefore they will
give you de! It forms a circuit whereby they take your qi here, and
give you de over there. The person who steals qi does not know this --
if they knew it they would not dare do it!
All those people who steal qi have bluish faces, and they are all this
way. Many people who go to the parks for qigong practice aspire to
remove illnesses, and they have all kinds of diseases. When one is
healing an illness, one must try to discharge the pathogenic qi. Yet
the person who steals qi will not discharge qi, and will collect all
kinds of pathogenic qi all over their body. Even the internal body
becomes very dark. As they always lose de, their experience is all
black. With a large field of black karma and great loss of de, they
will become black inside and out. Were the person who steals qi to
find themselves experiencing this change, to realize they are giving
de to others by doing this foolish thing, they would not do it at all.
