From complex to simple

by Chen Zhonghua on 2015/02/23

All form of life on earth came about in a process that is from simple to complex, with human beings the most complex of all creatures. Learning of taiji, and learning in general is a process that goes from complex to simple. When complex systems/issues are understood in simple terms, it is called “enlightenment”.

I remember vividly the day I realized negative circles in the form. I felt enlightened for that particular form and that particular movement. Every time I performed a negative circle, it seemed a light bulb turned on and a spotlight hit my shoulder. I kept thinking, there’s another one. :-)

The complex form became a little simpler because I could tie one thing together throughout. A bunch of arm movements became just one.
