Never neglect any of the thirteen postures.
The source of the will is in the waist.
Pay attention to the slightest change from full to empty.
Let the Chi flow through the whole body constantly.
Stillness embodies motion; motion stillness.
Seek stillness in motion.
Surprising things will happen when you meet your opponent.
Give awareness and purpose to every movement.
When done correctly all will appear effortless.
At all times pay attention to the waist.
With abdomen loose and light, the chi can be activated.
If the coccyx is erect the shen rises to the top of the head.
The body should be pliable.
Hold the head as if suspended from a string.
Be alert and seek meaning in the purpose of Tai-Chi Chuan.
Bent and stretched, open and closed, let nature take its course.
Beginners are guided by oral teaching.
Gradually one applies oneself more and more.
Skill will take care of itself.
What is the main principle of Tai-Chi Chuan?
The mind is the primary actor and the body the secondary one.
What is the purpose and philosophy behind Tai-Chi Chuan?
Rejuvenation and prolonging of life beyond the normal span.
So an eternal spring.
Every word of this song has enormous value and importance.
Failing to follow this song attentively you will sigh away your time.
