18 Lohan Arts for Building vitality
When the techniques get more difficult the Mind training becomes even more important. Relax and enjoy standing on one leg and be wowed by how fast you feel balanced and strong - physically, mentally and spiritually. Powerful exercises bring enhanced results when you are ready for them. As you build your bank at Dan Tian through daily practice you are building your capacity for handling larger and larger amounts of energy and these exercises provide it.
18 Lohan Art techniques like "Big Boss lifts Urn" or "Lohan Worships Buddha" are the top of the line for developing Energetic Strength, or Internal Force. This internal force is what allows a small woman to best a larger man or an older opponent to easily outclass a younger one. Internal energetic force is a type of strength that anyone can develop, regardless of age, gender or stature, that enhances physical well being and deeply strengthens the clarity of your mind and intellect.
Physical & Emotional Balance
If you can relax your muscles and your mind while standing on one leg - you can glimpse the serenity of mind that is possible at all times - even the most stressful. This type of training wildly enhances your ability to find balance in all areas of life including your thoughts and emotions. These exercises will keep you strong and confident even in advanced age ranges and will help develop the young spirit into a lovely balance of spiritual lightness and grounded strength.
Some of the 18 Lohan Arts are particularly well suited for spiritual cultivation and can be used for catching a glimpse of Ultimate Reality. Regardless of your faith or religion or even lack thereof, experience of a deeply meditative state leaves you happier, refreshed and more compassionate and generous than before. This is considered a positive result of Spiritual Cultivation in most traditions.
Take yourself lightly, step consciously through your life, revel in the beauty of the truth and let it set you free.
