My Worded Chi


Outer peace & inner love

Tranquility like an Ocean filled heart

Still whispering breeze

Bonsai

Oh standing tree

You Lean with true superiority such firmness such strength

greener than green

      Good Stuff @Dyhannah, I did Tai Chi many years ago & for 2 years straight, so I loved it.

      I will get back into it for sure this summer, it helps to open up the heart and lungs a great deal, and is a great healer of your overall blood flow & circulation.

      I'm happy you liked the video and the poem, I will try to do better next time as well.

      Thanks @ImKarn23, yes indeed that tree is truly awesome, I found it on Wikipedia, and hand picked it out of a cool selection of Bonsai trees there.

      Thank you @MarleneB for your kind words, I use to do Tai Chi when I was a Navy Sailor on my old military base in Pennsylvania, and I'll never forget the peace I gained both mentally, and physically while doing so, it helped me achieve a great deal in the US Navy, simply by practicing it daily.

      I also got into meditation which made all the problems of this world, simply fade away from my mind and my heart back then when I practiced both, and I became restored with new totally positive faith in life, and so I highly recommend for folks to give Tai Chi a try, its powerful indeed.

      Even going to church becomes a whole new experience after learning to do these two awesome metaphysical practices, which originated from the Asia.

      Beautiful poem. I really enjoyed the video. The fluid, continuous motion of tai chi is so peaceful, even to watch.
