Double Heavy and the Bagua

by Niko on 2012/07/02

 

I was thinking about  this specific Taiji-term this morning and i spontaneously

linked it to the Bagua.

Untrained people suffer from being double-heavy, which is kind of similar to the state

of “Later Heaven”, where Water and Fire stand in the cardinal axis and “fight” with

each other. Their “Taiji” produces just yin and yin or yang and yang.

Through the training our Taiji should produce yin and yang. Applied to

double-heavy, it would transform into single “heavy” ( yin) and single “light” ( yang).

This would conform to the “Earlier Heaven” where, through balance of water and

fire, heaven (light) and earth (heavy) take their places in the cardinal axis.
