“Running water will not go stale and nor will a well-oiled door hinge ever rust.” This is an ancient saying that comes from the Daoist daily practice of cultivating the elixir. If one consistently practices Dao Yin it will clear any existing blockages and prevent any health problems from forming in the first place. This is because the daily practices improves and refines the quality of Jing and blood and adjusts and improves the functions of Yuanjing 元精, Yuanqi 元炁, Yuanshen 元神 in every organ.
So what is the difference between the Daoist practice and a regular exercise (cardio, running, weightlifting etc)? Regular exercise only reaches the muscle, it does not reach the level of Jing, Qi, Shen. As a result, the healing effect is very minor and most of the time the exercise itself causes damage without the practitioner realising. The nature of the exercise decides the outcome. For instance, external, hard, physical exercises only gets the muscle hardened, it can never nourish the organs but costs a lot of blood and fluids. If one maintains such training over a period of time it will cause a lot of health problems and deadly illnesses.
Internal Daoyin practice exercises and refines internally. Internally here means it nourishes the blood and Jing (精), and the blood and Jing never leaves the body, which is why the practice is known as “internal”. The original blood gets refined and the original Qi will be created in order to join with the original Shen. We receive this Qi and Shen not only from ourselves but mainly from the nature through the practice. The great benefit of this training cannot be compared to any other normal physical exercise. The practice is not only easy to perform but also to continue performing it over time. When the quantity reaches a certain level, the channels of Jing, Qi and Shen will be all opened. In Chinese we say “Bai mai ju kai, qi xue he chang (百脉具开，炁血和畅)”, which means that the channels are opened and Qi and blood flow harmoniously.
With this you will build yourself a stronghold fortress of Jing, Qi and Shen to shield yourself from any illness. As such, who can take advantage of you?!
