Qìgōng and the Cycle of Life – Part 4
If we have been practising Qìgōng 氣功 regularly, when we reach 50 to 60 years old, we will quite fit, have enough energy and still look good. We will feel the same as we did when we were between 30 and 40, however, we will feel better than many other people of the same age. Most of us will not need to see a doctor which means we are still healthy, we can exercise, eat well, sleep well and are still in good condition. All this because our Qìgōng has kept our energy strong. If we do start to feel tired, we will go out to practise instead of just resting. Before we go to sleep, we will do a little bit of practice and not for long, as we do not want too much energy and wake ourselves up and not be able to sleep. Then we will go to bed, but we will do some meditation first and then we will go to sleep. If you are over a 50 you might get up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet or you might sleep all the way through until the next morning. If you do wake up then you can do some meditation again before going back to sleep. After the second meditation you will be able to sleep soundly until the next morning.
