Does your fitness program make you feel happy?

November 17, 2020

We all know that if a person does not get something from their exercise regime, they will not continue. It is that simple. Results count.

You can build strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, and benefits that run the gamut of feel better benefits in most fitness programs.

From the standpoint of a Qigong teacher through, I have to ask, does your fitness program make you feel happy. I don’t mean happy with the results. I mean a deeper happy.

Qigong, you see, works at a deep level. The level of your soul. Yeah, I said it. I went there.

When most people who are not practitioners of Qigong see it being practiced they see someone stretching. Big deal, right? Wrong, and wrong because they are clueless about what is really going on.

And honestly, it took me a few years of dedicated practice to learn, or start to learn what was going on. Because my sensei did not go there. Or at least he was waiting to take me down that road of discovery.

Qigong is an internal art. One that you need to learn the art of letting go of

  • expectations
  • tension
  • fear
  • hate
  • anger
  • preconceptions
  • ego
  • self pity
  • and so on

It is not an easy task. To quiet the mind takes practice. It takes a desire to be better, to act better, to feel better. And to learn to feel.

To feel internally. Not only to feel what is physically going on, but emotionally and spiritually as well. To get to the core of the person.

And when you get there, and you connect on all levels, in a relaxed, pure sense of connection, Qigong makes you happy.

So yes, the art of Qigong is a fitness program. The practice provides a wealth of physical benefits. But, on top of it all, or I should say, underneath it all is a connection to personal growth that you may not find anywhere else.
