An inspirational read about journey to the "Heavenly Lake" and some philosophical insights.

Normally, water sinks and fire rises, and they separate. According to Taoist Internal Medicine, this separation of yin & yang is why we grow old. Our sexual energy leaks out below, and our brain, over-cooked by excess thinking and our heart stressed out by reactive emotions, release heat above. Eventually this separation causes organ exhaustion and death. We need balanced water and fire to rejuvenate our bodies and grow new cells.

The story:

The nine days I spent on Mt. Changbai was for me a journey to the very roots of the Healing Tao lineage. Mantak Chia's teacher One Cloud, an ardent life-long spiritual seeker of the Way, left his family and business in the 1920's (around age 45) and went searching for an inner alchemy teacher in the remote wilds of Mt. Changbai. He found a Taoist hermit named White Cloud. White Cloud taught One Cloud the practical secrets of the original Tao Seven Formulas of Internal Alchemy that had been orally transmitted, adept-to-adept, for over a thousand years.

Some metaphorical thoughts:

It's like a software upgrade: Earth 3.5 or Earth 4.0? Which version of earth you end up on will depend on what you believe. This is why aligning your will, opening your heart. and having a regular cultivation practice is so important. These help to determine how ready you are to manifest the vibrational frequency underlying a given new reality upgrade.

This is based on the understanding that water energy(yin) moves from the feet to the head and fire energy(yang) sinks from the head to the feet.

We're in a planetary historical big cycle of feminine energy rising from Earth, not masculine energy descending from Heaven

If water energy(yin) is supposed to be related to chi/chakra/spiritual water then from my point of view kundalini fire/root burn starts at root and the energy that heals chi float from above the head. Chi can go down in the legs if needed. But the heat starts at the spine and flames up internally to the shoulders while the chi cools the head down to throat chakra and go where needed when lack appears.
