To paraphrase a verse from the Gia-Fu Feng /Jane English
translation of the ancient Chinese book, the Tao Te Ching...
The wise student hears of this therapy and practices it diligently.
The average student hears of this therapy and gives it thought now and again.
The foolish student hears of this therapy and laughs aloud.
If there were no laughter, this therapy would not be what it is.
Like the foolish student, any intelligent person will laugh aloud at this therapy.
It has no books to buy, no classes to take and no scientific explanation.
There's nothing to join, nowhere to make donations to and no charismatic leader making the talk show circuit.
As with the origins of the world's great religions, it's somewhat radical and incomprehensible, and its basic truths speak to us through our hearts and not our intellects. Its only aim is to provide, at no charge, a resource for anyone who is willing
to trust in its timeless principles and to do the work that's required to achieve results.
Nothing but good can come from practising this therapy. There's no special talent needed. Anyone can do it. Those who do even a little will become more calm, and
feel more comfortable with themselves and their place in the world. They will not, however, be able to cultivate appreciable amounts of energy or be able to focus
that energy in order to eliminate cancer.
Ideally, a person will work on Part 1: (Opening and letting go) for perhaps a month before moving on to the beginning of Part 2: (Cultivating energy). When there's enough energy
built up (about 4-8 months, but the time required varies from person to person) it's time to begin
the focusing exercises to practise moving that energy into an external object. Once you can do this - you can heal yourself. By being aware of how the movement of energy feels in your body, you'll know without a doubt when it's time to take the next step.
Most people dealing with cancer will want to move on as quickly as possible and may prefer to work on Parts 1 and 2 concurrently. There's no reason why this can't be done, and there will be immediate benefits, but it's a little like trying to start a car's engine before the battery has been charged.
This is actually a pretty good analogy...
The average person goes through life with a battery that's only partly charged and an electrical system that isn't very efficient at moving that energy to the motor. This is
good enough to get by on when everything's wonderful and it's a beautiful spring day, but when times get tougher, and the weather turns harsh, you need a fully charged battery and an electrical system that transmits energy easily to get the results you need.
A lone figure, wandering through the night - searching for escape from this hostile
and barren land. No one to listen but the howling wind and bone-chilling cold.
There ahead, at the crossroads, sits the old and worn-out truck that brought him to
this place. Pounding on its frozen shell, the ice shatters and the door swings open.
Shelter from the storm.
Sitting in silence. Terrified. Helpless. Hoping for deliverance from the
terrible situation that he finds himself in - through no fault of his own.
A turn of the key. A sound. A vibration.
Engine firing. Headlights glowing.
Safe and homeward bound.
