Taoist Yoga, chapter 15: The Egress

Chapter 15: The Egress

When the body is unstirred, the generative force is stabilised and the element of water moves to the head; when the heart is not stirred, the breath consolidates and the element of fire moves to the head; when (essential) nature is serene the incorporeal soul will be hidden and the element of wood moves to the head; when passions cease, the corporeal soul is subdued and the element of metal moves to the head; when these four elements (water, fire, wood and metal) are in harmony, the intellect is stable and the element of earth moves to the head.
