The extensive high quality color illustrations gracing most every page of COSMIC FUSION help to elevate what might otherwise have seemed to be an esoteric book on advanced Taoist alchemical energy meditation practices to a very high level of practical applicability. The numerous exercises in COSMIC FUSION help the reader master working with the Taoist eight forces and directions, yet this book also does an excellent job of describing Taoist concepts and cosmology, and how to transform 'negative' emotions such as anger, frustration and guilt into kindness with simple techniques such as smiling to one's organs. We are extremely fortunate that Destiny Books is publishing Mantak Chia's comprehensive works describing Taoist energy practices, and that COSMIC FUSION includes so many high quality illustrations on the finest paper. The illustrations are extremely useful for understanding the basic concepts involved in the exercises and the relationships between various forces and energies, and the text provides delightful overviews, stories and practical guidelines for all concepts covered. Chia has created a true masterpiece in COSMIC FUSION by clearly describing the most important basic steps one needs to follow in order to achieve clearly observable positive results in one's health, vitality, peace of mind, and overall prosperity. I especially loved the question and answer section in this book, as it covers such a wide variety of topics, from how to energetically protect oneself to how diet influences one's energy (with raw foods contributing to yin, and meat and dairy to yang), to master Chia's pursuit of the elusive secret of how to transfer one's consciousness to the next life through one's energy body... which lives forever. COSMIC FUSION is an excellent book for all energy practitioners and advanced meditators seeking to live healthier, more harmonious lives, and I give it my highest recommendation!Was this review helpful?
