Neigong Firewood Cutting – I GET to cut firewood!
Many think that the practice of Neigong/Qigong is a set thing, and a separate from daily life thing. NOT SO!
One goal of qigong practice is to learn to apply it in daily life. To accomplish this goal, we have to practice at the integration of what we have learned with all life tasks.
Oftentimes, when we have a task to accomplish, we go “Oh no, I HAVE to do this!”
When we should embrace it as a wonderful thing we GET to do! As in, “I GET to do this, how amazing is that!”
We burn firewood to heat our house and I only cut dead trees, not live trees.
This firewood cutting session was particularly challenging, as I had to take particular caution and use a chain and rope to insure I wouldn’t get squished flat as a pancake when it fell.
I ALWAYS get into my “qi state” prior to cutting firewood. As such, I am much more “in the moment” of the experience. As such, I am more attuned to safety, AND I have much more energy to accomplish a demanding physical task.
I encourage everyone to apply their Neigong/Qigong to their daily tasks. You will find it most rewarding. Turn each experience from “I HAVE to do this (negative thoughts and speech*&^%$%)” to “I GET to do this!” – resulting in a harmonious experience. Plus GAIN energy instead of losing energy!
