Cultivating Yin

…to contemplate and cultivate Yin…

Guanzi "Inner Practice" and Quieting the Qi

是故此氣也,

不可止以力,

而可安以德。

不可呼以聲,

而可迎以音。

For this reason, this qi,

You cannot stop it with physical strength,

And yet you can quiet it with your inner power;

You cannot call it with your voice,

And yet you can welcome it with intention/awareness.

(Guanzi, Nei Ye《管子,內業》”Inner Practice”, Sabine’s translation)
