The breath is the bridge joining mind, body and spirit."
Have you invested time and energy in your Internal practice? Are you satisfied with your understanding and skill? Consistent standing practice will develop a calm mind and prepare your body to naturally produce effortless power.
Like most things, it's quality not quantity that counts. Practice for a long time is to recognize, cultivate and maintain ease. If you lose ease during training your progress will be slow. This is tough for many people to accept. If your body is at ease, then it can help the mind be at ease. If your mind is at ease, then it can help the body. This feedback cycle helps bring Tai Chi principles into everyday life.
