You can live two months without food and two weeks without
water, but you can live only a few minutes without air.
[Master Hung Yi-hsiang]
According to the Taoist view, the nutrition provided by air through
breathing is even more vital to health and longevity than that provided by
food and water through digestion. Breathing influences the body's
bioelectric balance just as diet influences its biochemical balance.
There are basically two functional types of breathing: cleansing and
energizing. Cleansing breath detoxifies the body and stresses exhalation.
Energizing breath collects and stores vital energy and focuses more on
inhalation. Though people today take breathing for granted, everyone
unconsciously practices both types of breath spontaneously throughout
the day, whenever toxins in the bloodstream reach a critical level or
energy is running low. Thus, a sigh is a spontaneous cleansing breath, for
it involves a quick inhalatory gulp followed by a long, forceful exhalation.
By contrast, a yawn is a spontaneous energizing breath - a long, slow,
deep inhalation, briefly retained in the lungs, followed by a relatively
Chee-gung, which means both 'breathing exercise' and 'energy con-
trol', has been a formal branch of Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years.
Recall that the Chinese word chee means 'breath' and 'energy' as well as
'air'. One of the earliest references to this form of medical therapy appe3118

In breathing, one should proceed as follows: hold the breath
down and let it collect together. When it collects, it will expand.
When it expands, it sinks down. When it sinks down, it grows
quiet. When it grows quiet, it will solidify. When it solidifies, it
begins to grow. As it grows, it is drawn inward and upward and
will reach the crown of the head. Above, it presses against the
top of the head. Below, it presses downward.
Whoever follows this method will live a long life. Whoever
goes against it, will die prematurely.
