I don't know where this Dragon came from! If I had to sit and think or imagine how to draw this Dragon .. I could not do it. Using the artistic mind you suddenly see the drawing in its entirety and putting the lines onto paper is an act of psychic integrity and inner focus.
The artist is really the Master of movement. Art is movement in all its forms. There are artists of preparing food .. of Martial Arts .. of building structures .. artists of playing instruments and all involve movement. You draw a line on paper? You have to move. One has to command movement.
You could say that all artists are Masters of movement .. they command movement [discipline]. This is the final outcome of an inner process few people understand or pay attention to .. and this inner force or inner movement is what I call Dragon Qi.
In the first series of drawings I made I was shown that all human beings on Earth exhibit multiple variations of Dragon Qi energy pathways from the time they are born to the time they die. But .. we do not simply inherit the pathways! They accompany us from birth.
The next thing that happens to us that goes generally unnoticed is that the brain [and the body listen to us]. The spirit is incarnate within the physical form and they bring with them certain energy pathway signatures that form Dragon Qi or the movement of Dragon Qi within the body.
The human brain is plastic .. it changes .. the brain is capable of altering itself and altering neural pathways. I was show that the brain is designed to listen to the incarnate spirit and reflect or mirror the nature of the spirit within the body. It is a self-integrated system.
You like to suffer? You will suffer. Pleasure? The body will wear itself out giving it to you.
To some extent the genes have accumulated experience and perhaps fears across the space-time existence of man. However, we are constantly altering and updating that genetic information. Genetics are not a closed-loop. Genetics are designed to give a foundation and to respond to the incarnate spirit within the body.
Most important of all is the unseen background energy that powers this whole system and physical living experience. The unseen factor is the inner fire or the inner force of Dragon Qi. Every human being has their own unique pathways [cycles of inner movement] of that force.
Most people on Earth have to first learn to balance the flow of energy.
The first level is to learn [teach oneself] balance. For some reason people want to jump to the next level .. which is taming Dragon Qi. To tame the Qi one has to release it. Without balance it is not a good idea to release or even to desire to release that force. Without balance the released force will consume the human being.
Artists Are Born In Their Released Form
When an artist is born in their released form they do not have a choice if they want it or not. Some people are born right into the depths of their own being .. because of the work they have done lifetime after lifetime. By that I mean REAL ARTISTS .. and that can be someone who forges knives or someone who grows plants .. the Zen Garden.
When you are born in your released form balance is not an issue. You already dealt with balance many times on your journey across the mysteries of space-time. Getting thrown in at the deep end is another test and initiation. Balance becomes a tool in applying discipline of Taming the Inner Dragon Qi.
The artist or the master knows that relationship lies within. All relationship is not an outer experience .. it is an inner experience. How we relate to the outer world is how we relate to ourselves. Relationship is a signature of our inner Qi. This is the foundation of our relationship to the world.
Ask 100 people to draw one line and you will get 100 different lines.
The body simply mirrors our unique state .. is designed to have a direct relationship with us. The human body is a highly advanced living technology that is designed to respond to spirit. Each person uses a computer in a different way and it is the same with the spirit.
I could be wrong about this .. but it seems that Dragon Qi is the interactive force between spirit and physical matter. In a way spirit is the psyche / consciousness and Qi energy flow responds to the inner state of our consciousness.
It is not that the mind directs the flow of Qi .. but that the flow of Qi responds to our inner state. I am talking about a gentle form rather than physical active. The flow of the gentle form affects the body. People say: If you are out of balance you are not flowing with your Qi ...
I don't think so!
Every living thing is moving in accordance with its own Qi .. at its own level. It is just that some levels of energy flow are fragmented .. sometimes in chaos .. frightened .. all the different forms of emotions. At the same time each one of us is in harmony with the individual flow of Qi at any point in space-time.
First we discover inner balance and then we are ready through inner discipline to tame the Dragon Qi. That is the next impossible question that has been revealed to me. Movement as TIME. Then it gets complex: Art as movement in time.
