I CHUAN TAO ARGENTINA
know and understand without thinking
As an I chuan tao practising , Iīve shared my time and space of practice with plenty of people, with some of them I īve turned into brothers , with others into class mates of school, place, events, work; and I īve also shared.
with many people I īve never seen, not for any mystic reason, just because I
was practising Zhuan Zhuang before they came or finished when they had gone.
why, I could live some experiences beside a lot of people and listen different
deductions about what is The I chuan Tao practice ; many were reasonable ,
others almost brillant and others stupid ... ; maybe some stupid ones have been
so brilliant that comes back to the stupidity or so stupid that turns into
the own stupidity sometimes saw any brightness or darkned others;
not, it was my own intelligence which made it stupid or conceived a stupid idea
over a brilliant theory; although.... the
light of the deductions over the practice get the truth dark, it īs only who
lost his eyes practising, who can see without being blinded because of the
bright of the truth , the power of the practice weakens the light of the
inteligence, depuring the reason , and promotes the development of the
instinctive ,which is produced by means of the commitment and showed when youīre
honest , fool to the light of the
eyes of the intelligence and by means of the power of the reason , Itīs :
THE STRENGTH BE
, OBI WAN
KENOBI ... and like this ,I can keep playing I think , Iīm
intelligent and I understand or Iīm
stupid and also understand.
are as many I CHUAN
as people who practise,
because each one is different, in
each one is different and in each one generates something different.
there is only one I chuan Tao, my Master
taught a lot of Zhuan Zhuang and everyone do it in a different way but all alike
. The I chuan Tao has no method but all of
-I donīt come but I practise, I`m an I chuan tao practising.
donīt understand I chuan Tao , you practise
and you practise at school with the practice family. The I chuan Tao is
not just movement or no movement , itīs taking the time to go to the school ,
the physical time to overcome the economic or personal problems , any problem ;
to put the ego in other place and practise to accept your mates , brothers ,
students , teachers , the way they are ; and grow up yourself in the only place
you have to practise, at the school ; the cost is not the matters since
it is always less than what you have to practise, I`m not talking about the
benefits; in the practice , you
shouldnīt put any cost before it (
economic or personal).
you donīt practise at school, you arenīt an I chuan Tao practising.
solve the problems in the practice.
back from my absences , steps of the personal practice , my Master taught me :
, you donīt come, you donīt practise...
, Master, I go to the park everyday and practise..
up, listen , (...), you donīt come , you donīt practise, you donīt
understand, you donīt know. Now, you come, practise , you understand.
, Master, I donīt understand, I want to practise with you
I think ...
! In Ichuan Tao ,Donīt think! Do you come? Do you practise?
you know, you understand ... now, donīt think, now take the stick and practise
contaminates the understanding and generates different things, depends on the
personality : Shame ( I donīt practise well, Iīve lost my level ) , Arrogance
( he doesnīt know ) etc. Only the practice at school generates and developes
of that behaviour, there is a bigger risk:
, I asked what happened if we let this not coming posture take place , or we
came every now and then because we canīt .
of my brothers properly said : there would be two of us left , Weīll come
didnīt answered ; if we all leave place to excuses , as powerful they were,
nobody comes, the I chuan Tao dies.
Master taught me :If you donīt come, you donīt understand ; if you donīt
practise, you donīt know .
Now, I know that if you donīt practise, How do you know there
isnīt I canīt but I donīt want to ? There
arenīt many I chuan, you know
this practising, and you keep it free of contamination ; ...developing the will
by coming to practise, practising the commitment everyday, depuring it in the
with the permanence, I īm gonna understand that the I chuan Tao has no method
thatīs why it has all , and it doesnīt mean that there are plenty of I chuan
if not one which is like this, you donīt think , you practise thinking with
your belly and it onlydevelops one
same HEART in all tha I chuan Tao
practising , which gets softer and contaminated ( not only forgeting) when we
are far from the practice. The one who doesnīt practice, donīt see , and
think what is different (in different people) but it is one and you see it in
I chuan Tao practising īeyes. For example, when I want to explain what I felt
in a Zhuan Zhuang to a brother or a teacher and I canīt find the proper words,
but he look into your eyes and says : Yes, I know , itīs like this. ; and I
know he understood me, the more we advance in our practice the less we talk in
The commitment to come to practise develops the will my Master taught me- and the will templates the HEART like the fire to the steel , Only one same HEART in the I chuan Tao Heart.
I understood, now I know.
Only the ones who knows , practise, only who practise, Knows.
Donīt forget, the ones who knows , doesnīt talk and Iīve talked too much
Everything that can be told or writen is not the Tao , it is not true.
The Tao , in any discipline is the practice itself.
My best regards
