Tai Chi can be used to develop and cultivate your spirituality - nor to be confused with religiosity. Tai Chi encourage flowing unbroken movements and training thus becomes meditative. The slow, graceful movements provides relaxed focus, quiet down internal conversations (The Monkey Mind) and engender a deep sense of relaxation that helps release inner tensions.
Tai Chi is simple and profound. Practicing this art is an active participation in restoring balance within yourself, and developing a healthy relationship to the environment around you. With diligent practice your health will improve, your frame of mind will expand, and your Spirit will shine in your eyes.
The goal is not to demonstrate strength, power or violence. The goal is to attain serenity, tranquility, and the discovery of oneself. It is truly an exercise of the spirit.
Master Tung Kai-Ying on Tai Chi Chuan.
Years of training enhances deeper awareness. However, these qualities are only a bridge to realization. The spiritual path goes beyond having health and a calm, peaceful mind. The highest purpose of this kind of meditation is to make you aware of the permanent, unchanging center of your being, that place of spirit and emptiness which is Consciousness itself. This level is beyond mere physical and mental relaxation; rather it is creating a living identification with your soul - with your very being.
This is the true purpose of Tai Chi Chuan.
There are no secrets in Tai Chi.
Just things too deep to be immediately seen.
