    Tai Chi Haircut ?

    The book outlines the basics of Tai Chi and professional haircut and waxing business. One exercise which was especially interesting was fasting for a whole day, drinking nothing but water and then sitting in a quiet place 'like a park, garden or at home' and murmering 'Haircut ! Haircut !' Very informative book.

    'There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same.'

    'There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same.' Chinese Proverb: ⿿The First 16 Secrets of Chi: Feng Shui for the Human Body⿝ by Luk Chun Bond, the Chi Kung Master of Honolulu offers us some very direct paths to the top of the mountain. After reading Master Bond⿿s book, from its beginnings in rural China thru the Tai Chi exercises to the final chapter on self-healing I was mesmerized. Learning to understand all of the elements of Tai Chi, took on a whole new exquisiteness, the rapture in just being and an awareness through physical practice. In ancient times there were great Taoist Sages; they taught that the task is complete, but the Sage doesn't seek credit or take pride in the task well done. Because the Sage is not attached to the success, the achievement lasts forever. The secrets of Chi are forever. MarshaRose Honolulu
