Inspiration for a little something-something, coming soon…
Huang Di said, “The months of the Spring season bring about the revitalization of all things in nature. It is the time of birth. This is when Heaven and Earth are reborn. During this season it is advisable to retire early and arise early. Also, go walking in order to absorb the fresh, invigorating energy. Since this is the season in which the universal energy begins anew and rejuvenates, one should attempt to correspond to it directly by being open and unsupressed, both physically and emotionally.
“On the physical level is good to exercise more frequently and wear loose-fitting clothing. This is the time to do stretching exercises to loosen up the tendons and muscles. Emotionally, it is good to develop equanimity. This is because Spring is the season of the Liver, and indulgence in anger, frustration, depression, sadness, or excess emotion can injure the Liver. Furthermore, violating the natural order of Spring will cause cold disease, illness inflicted by atmospheric cold, during summer.
Today as many times before, the sun has lit a streak of fire in the sky, but in morning of the new day, I am pushed from the hastening trolley bus like a cork from a bottle. Men and women love the dawn for it’s freshness, for it’s promise of new beginnings. In the morning therefor, I am not frightened that I have chosen to live a life unlike that of other young men.” – John White, Welsh poet
