Topic: Everything comes from the spirit

„We believe that our lives are no longer so dependent on the weather and nature.
But that is only the case on the visible level.
On the invisible level, we are still deeply involved in these interactions.”

Master Dean Li 

The eighth solar term of the year and the second in summer is Xiǎomǎn, 小满. „Xiǎo” means „small” and „mǎn” originally means „filled” or „fullness”. Xiǎomǎn is a special sign of nature. This sign means: the water fills up.

Nature, the waters, must be filled. If the water is sufficient and flowing, then it is in a state of harmony. Balance can be described as abundance. In the same way, if we can connect with the ancestors and understand our Yuánfèn, then we are in a state of balance or abundance. This allows the information, like water, to continue to flow and help us.

If we follow the natural flow, everything we need is always there. That’s why we should always be humble, regardless of whether we have a lot or a little. Everything we get, we get from the spirit.

„Heaven and earth are everything. Everything belongs inseparably together.
If heaven and earth are together, then they must be in harmony.
That is everything. It’s yin and yang.”

Master Dean Li 

We are humble when we don’t want and do too much and don’t disturb this natural flow. Then we live in connection with the yuánfèn and find harmony and peace.

„Ip means practice and more information for everyone.
If we do the exercise well now, it is a benefit for our future, so that we understand now.”

Master Dean Li
