What are those benevolent and sparkling spine-tingling/shivering feelings REALLY about?

Why would I address this? Please check it out and share your thoughts (and just to be certain, I am NOT in any way referring to anything sexual). And PLEASE know that the spirit of this commentary is in NO WAY elitist or to purposely/blindly speak of things ‘out in left field,’ or ANY such thing. I am setting this forth in a benevolent spirit of humility and respect (AND another ‘please,’ i.e., know that it is quite clear that the concepts herein are not in any way a broad part of our Western culture).

In the Far East, what I am speaking to is coined chi/qi (in China), ki (in Nippon/Japan), and pranha (in Indian Sanskrit). ‘Chi’ is pronounced ‘chee,’ ‘ki’ is pronounced ‘Kee,’ and ‘pranha’ is pronounced just the way it looks – with soft ‘a’ sounds, similar as in a round ‘ball.’ In the ages-old arts that I teach, coach, and endeavor to follow, acupuncture theory, tai chi chuan, and chi kung are inclusive of teachings in which we teach/direct means by which to QUITE substantially strengthen our chi/bio-electric energy for health/wellness & in promoting pertinent skills (inclusive, but not limited to being a very important aspect of True Health).

What does it actually feel like, at such TRULY substantive/skilled levels? In many ages-old similar traditions, it is quite clear that this knowledge has all but been lost. There are three facets: (1) One must be truly skilled in all-of-the-time abdominal/diaphragmatic breathing (the benefits are profound); (2) One must realize True Skill in (as is coined in my specific tradition) Playing the Part of the (unblemished or next-to-unblemished) Witness with regard to one’s internal/external environments; (3) one must learn the True Skill of realizing enhanced levels of bio-electric energy AT WILL, i.e., benevolent, altruistic sparkling spine-tingling/shivering feelings/sensations; and learning the skill of associated guided imagery in moving this ‘golden elixir’ (as a meditative health practice, i.e., for preventive and treatment purposes).

Not meant in the spirit of being difficult, but what I’m speaking of (what enhanced bio-electric feelings feel like) is NOT different for each individual – it is VERY much the same. We likely have all had those loving ‘spine-tingling moments’ occasionally during our lifetimes: Congruent with Eastern traditions, this ‘feeling’ is (whether by happenstance or with purpose) enhanced bio-electric energy (chi).

Congruent with acupuncture theory, this skillfully enhanced/fanned bio-electric energy is foremost associated with the ‘kidney chi’/’original chi,’ the bio-electric energy which we are born with (for health/wellness purposes – the goal is to mindfully center it in the body’s associated ‘furnace,’ i.e., residing in acupuncture point CV#8/’real tan tien’ area (behind the navel) – aligned with the ming men, and also strongly associated with the circulatory ‘lower tan tien’ – CV#6 – 2.5 inches below the navel).

The ‘feeling’ has intrinsic relationships to what is coined as the ‘Accumulation of Light’ (or ‘Lightness’), and also “A Glimpse of Heaven,” (i.e., according to these teachings, as strange as it MAY sound to many, it is what it feels like in Heaven – at least according to the specific tradition within which I was taught). The philosophical/theoretical facet of this school of thought in my tradition of TCM/chi kung/tai chi chuan is coined Ming Chia (a type of Tao Chan/Zen), i.e., the Bright Beautiful School of Thought (as set forth in my book). As said earlier, it can only be best/skillfully/at will realized in congruence with diaphragmatic breathing and unblemished Witnessing (without precognition or expectations).

A primary goal is to learn to gather a deep abiding sense of true appreciation of the miracle of the moment. As stated earlier, most people during their lifetimes have likely experienced those special loving and/or sentimental-seeming moments, in which they have those feelings/realizations (usually emanating from the abdominal/lumbar area). In the arts that I teach, this is an unintentional realization of enhanced bio-electric energy. As said, a goal in this form of guided imagery/meditation is to learn to fan the furnace, stronger and stronger, until one can realize those feelings AT WILL: This (traditionally viewed) can only be done by way of emptying the mind of all pernicious cyclical thinking/expectations…and/or focusing ONLY just EXACTLY on what one is doing). Accordingly, this is a significant aspect of what we so quite altruistically/respectfully coin as True Health: Once one accomplishes this, the possibilities are quite broad, i.e., inclusive of learning to move the ‘cursor’ (enhanced bio-electric energy) on meridians/pathways.

One of the ultimate goals in this art is to learn to do this in ANY setting in one’s daily life – not just with regard to sitting meditation. It is said that 90% is breathing correctly and/or breathing correctly in time WITH relaxed/mindful movement…but the other 10% is the added benefit of more and more skilled guided imagery added into the mix (inclusive of fanning the furnace and emptying one’s mind or focusing on JUST one thing/what one is doing). Resonant/healing single syllabic or multi-syllabic sounds can also be added into it.

Most importantly and traditionally viewed, this type of meditation is defined, in practical application, as necessitating/enjoying quite healthful true honesty, promoting of true happiness and true freedom…but most importantly, not needing anything to hide behind. Thus consistent with those loving sparkling spine-tingling/shivering sensations, this may be what a Glimpse of Heaven actually is…feels like…what Heaven would feel like. A place, so-to-speak, where all is known…and once again, NOTHING TO HIDE BEHIND. — Dr. Glen Hepker

What can I do to make this day forever splendidly and lovingly unforgettable? Is it my responsibility?

How about each day, even each and every moment…NO MATTER the quality of the day, the moment – choosing to find a means by which to make even the most difficult of days/moments into splendid blessings that we will never forget? Do we have such wherewithal?

What would the world be like if more and more of us learned to succinctly see this as a true responsibility? Would it require that we learn to better and better embrace healthful change and avoid getting lost in a mien of blind craving and desire? Would it require that we learn to better and better embrace the notion that we are all so much more in the same common ‘boat’ than we often think and act? Would it require that we endeavor to do the right thing for the right selfless sake…more and more and more? Would it require that we endeavor to be resplendently benevolent, compassionate, and empathetic (albeit NOT co-dependent) in our interaction with others…displaying dignity, decency, goodness, and grace…and figuring out how to truly mean it, NO MATTER WHAT? Would it require that we be supportive of others in their healthful goals?

Certainly this is ‘tough stuff,’ to say the least…but quite likely there may be very little that could be more rewarding, inclusive of realization of true health. Such appreciation of life and its living is absolutely requisite of quintessential levels of love and deeply genuine gratitude – sparkling spine-tingling/shivering impeccable true appreciation of the miracle of the moment. So humbly and respectfully, it is requisite of true effort – realization/enjoyment of levels of true mastery whose ‘secret’ may be in enjoying deep appreciation of one of the most significant blessings of all on this Earth, e.g., that there is ALWAYS room for improvement, greater and greater levels of objective insight and mastery. Is this a ‘key’ to true health? Each of us can only answer this for ourselves.

Congruent with this outlook is the notion that enjoying free will is among the most wonderful of blessings. Albeit, LOTS of responsibility comes with it, most particularly IF we CHOOSE to RESPECTFULLY answer to it. Ideally, it must be harmoniously consistent with the wonderful spirit thereof, e.g., creating a truly healthful and appreciative WAY OF LIFE.

Getting ongoingly lost on crepuscular/stagnant plateaus can be like a living death: Embracing healthful change CAN make it possible to more and more realize the ability to play the part of the less and less blemished Witness…taking part in the living loving story of our lives, vs. just being a pawn in the story of our lives. It is so much about true appreciation and true honesty, promoting of true happiness and true freedom…but most importantly, needing less and less to hide behind. — Dr. Glen Hepker

Being a student of life, i.e., as a living loving art form…what is your outlook?

So quite humbly speaking, students of life, i.e., as a living loving art form (*who realize their genuine responsibility in making the world a better place), might gather objective selfless insight into the Noble Paths of ‘healthful thinking’ and ‘healthful action,’ displaying themselves with dignity, decency, goodness, grace, and honor/integrity…doing right for the sake of doing right…leading by example. They might take true personal responsibility for their own health and well-being, while learning to better and better take ownership of the notion that blindly living with craving, desire, and fear of healthful change is not a medium by which to undergo the Healthful Noble Path(s).

Consistent with this healthful spirit, it is quite significant to be benevolently aware that the common concept that we are all separate beings is a faulty notion which is humankind’s greatest encumbrance/handicap. It is so very much about true forgiveness, and true honesty which is promoting of true happiness and true freedom…but most importantly, needing less and less to hide behind. It is SO very much about learning to realize the genuine skill of embracing living loving sparkling spine-tingling/shivering moments/feelings/’glimpses of heaven’ – AT WILL.

How important is it to learn to need less and less to hide behind?

If there is a Heaven, a ‘key to the universe,’ a sixth sense, are they rooted in True Honesty? What I am speaking of is a deeply empathetic, truly well-meaning, loving, altruistic, highly evolved health and wellness philosophy, i.e.., the Bright Beautiful School of Thought (Ming Chia). Most especially, this health and wellness philosophy is distinguished by its remarkable, thought-provoking, and ingenious notion of coalescing ethics and morality and deeply-rooted insight/objectivity skills with conceptions of health and wellness, i.e., True Health and/or ‘true health through true responsibility.’

Of significant importance in this philosophy, is the notion of ‘true honesty’ – gathering a level of objective insight that introduces one to the notion of NOT NEEDING ANYTHING TO HIDE BEHIND. Such healthful clarity/unblemished ‘witnessing’ is a significant aspect of what is coined as ‘glimpses of heaven’…loving bio-electric spine-tingling/shivering (chi/ki/pranha) feelings/realizations (and nurturing the genuine/quintessential skill of doing so AT WILL – AND as a way of life).

The following Lotus Flower Blossoms saying speaks the point in a benevolent, empathetic, and altruistic spirit…

“There is a place where, wherever you are there, whatever you are doing…no matter what, in any given moment, there should be nowhere you would rather be. It is where you are right now – and you have the ability to so deeply and artfully appreciate your life and its living…to connect one healthful insight to the next, and make them all one…learning to witness this already-existing truth.

In the wilderness of our existence…a place of budding flowers about, about to unwrap in a showing of perfect appreciation for all to thrive upon, we are the flowers which can blossom again and again in each season of our deeper and deeper insights…all connected…each better and more healthful than before.

It is not unlike Heaven…and it can become Heaven, with enough insight and appreciation. It takes quite a few sparks, glimpses – spine-tingling moments…as a way-of-life which becomes more and more purposeful…more and more without time or space or distance. More and more there is less and less to hide behind.” (Copyright 2011) — Dr. Glen Hepker

This is your tribe – feel it in your trusty gut.

In congruence with the traditions of the Bright School theory, while learning to play the part of the unblemished witness to the loving living story of your life (vs. just being a pawn to the story of one’s life), the resplendent quintessentially consistent Four Keys of Healthful Interaction are:

1. ‘The true responsibility of healthful interaction’ – treating people in one’s worst of moods just as well as in one’s best of moods, and figuring out how to TRULY mean it…NO MATTER WHAT.

2. Acting without Acting – doing the right thing for the right sake, without the need for recognition or hidden agendas.

3. Realizing we are all so much more in the ‘same boat’…not so separate as we so often think and act.

4. The ‘true responsibility of supporting others in their HEALTHFUL goals.’

The ‘four keys’ can be mindfully utilized in innumerable aspects of the human condition, and they can be applied to the notion of ‘thriving vs. just surviving.’ What is a difference between thriving vs. just surviving? In thriving, “beautiful sparkling seeds of promise are sprinkled in one’s path, but can be missed” unless one learns to better and better play the part of the unblemished witness (without expectations/preset patterns of thinking). How can we make this happen? The clarity one realizes through embracing true forgiveness presents one with opportunities for healing – they come from lightness which greatly impacts darkness. It is congruent with true appreciation, deep and abiding gratitude for learning to better and better take part in the living loving story of one’s life – less and less being stuck on stagnant plateaus which can be like a living death. It is consistent with deeper and deeper insight into the notion that there is a sparkling spine-tingling/shivering ‘true love,’ inclusive, but SO much more than just familial, friendship, and romantic love.

The four keys unlock the door to bringing forth new people into one’s life, those who recognize their true responsibility in making the world a better place…those for whom great success and a selfless/healthful desire to be of service to others go hand-in-hand. “This is your tribe. You feel it in your trusty gut.” Go to selfless lengths to foster such friendships, and witness the backs of unhealthful entities in one’s life getting smaller and smaller as they run away. — Dr. Glen Hepker

Do you want to get a ‘buzz’ on? ALL of the time? With no assistance? Naturally…no cheating?

What if it has to do with those benevolent sparkling spine-tingling/shivering feelings (those feelings that we usually only and spontaneously enjoy in special loving/sentimental moments)? A so-beautiful way of being – oh(!) SO light and fluid and relaxed…ALL of the time?

Does it have to do with a true love, inclusive, yet oh SO much more than just familial, friendship, and romantic love? Is it all so much about not needing recognition or having hidden agendas? As a WAY OF LIFE, can this be consistent with ongoing quintessential/beyond splendid ‘glimpses of Heaven’…harmony between Heaven and Earth? If there is such a thing as true health, can this be a significant part of it?

Is it SO light (lightness of being AND absorbing of light)…without the debilitating weight of craving, desire, and fear of healthful change?

What if the following was truly a loving, resplendent hint?

“There is a place where, wherever you are there, WHATEVER you are doing, there should be nowhere you would rather be. It is where you are right NOW. It takes quite a few sparks, glimpses, spine-tingling moments…as a way-of-life which becomes more and more purposeful…more and more without time or space or distance. More and more there is less and less to hide behind. It is not unlike Heaven…and it can become Heaven, with enough insight and genuine love and true appreciation.”

What if, what if, what if?!! It takes a bit of faith – “for faith we might have, unto the jester of light, in the comedy of reflections…as we stand upon this stage, in awe of, endless, encompassing all.” (Copyright 2011) — Dr. Glen Hepker

How much goodness and grace does it take?

“It is likely that life will always hold varying levels of frustrations and annoyances – but we can learn to honestly witness ourselves. In the story of our life, from one moment to the next, we can elect to be a good actor or bad actor. We do have the wherewithal to choose to be more than just pawns to our internal and external encumbrances. We can choose how frustrated and annoyed we become and by what fashion we display such feelings: Life can be without destructive and debilitating anger…in utilizing truly substantive healthful loving compassion and empathy. It can be done, through a meaningful acceptance – a realistic healthful empathy and optimism complemented by a lack of co-dependency. When someone wrongs us, we can be a good, healthful model and learn how to truly mean it: as is commonly said, “two wrongs don’t make a right.” We can lovingly act to never give in…and we need not ever ‘bend-over.’

It is easier to accomplish all of this when we can embrace the notion that each of us has historically ‘rocked the boat’ – and will likely do so again. It is easier to forgive ourselves for past infractions, when, in the here-and-now, we can display honest and well-meaning empathy and forgiveness for similar behavior in others. In the traditions herein, this healthful mien is viewed as being in direct congruence with the true responsibility of supporting others – and one aspect of an honest and loving true freedom.

While it is evident that ‘nothing is perfect’ herein this life, we can healthfully choose to learn to interpret things in a more and more unblemished and selfless light – a light which can become brighter and brighter and brighter. Once again, the greatest gift of all is that there is always room for improvement – deeper insight. Taking advantage of this ‘gift’ is exercising true freedom on a next-to-perfect level. And, in addition to that being said, it would be easy to say that such is as good as it gets on this Earth – but it would be dishonest and misleading. It does get better still, and better. And at such a point, it is traditional in these arts to reflect a bit of profundity which truly and honestly is meant in a spirit of heartfelt respect and appreciation:

“The Way that can be told is not the eternal way…the Way that can be told is the
Mother of all (material and tangible) things (which can separate us).”

The following handed-down analogy sets forth the detail in a seemingly strange and possibly distressful fashion:

The Way manifests in the madman screaming, “If the stars are not words, then stop calling them stars.”

Some things can only be (truly) understood by witnessing – whether it be of this Earth and the living story thereof, or in a glimpse of heaven.

Both levels of…(?) existence have commonalities, and there are many means by which to make this world a better place. Albeit, all meaningful ways as such are inclusive of these things: True Freedom, aka the accumulation of light and lightness, and its almost-unblemished and/or genuinely unblemished true love and true responsibility of universal compassion and healthfully-balanced empathy. As said, there are many means by which to make the world a better place – but all meaningful ways, to be exact, are inclusive of this level of grace and the freedom to artfully appreciate what we have.

This living awareness is among the pinnacles of true health, as described in the following saying (which is symbolic of life and all of its potential in connecting-the-healthful-dots):

The Lotus Flower Blossoms

‘There is a place where, wherever you are there, whatever you are doing…no matter what, in any given moment, there should be nowhere you would rather be.

It is where you are right now – and you have the ability to so deeply and artfully appreciate your life and its living…to connect one healthful insight to the next, and make them all one…learning to witness this already-existing truth.

In the wilderness of our existence…a place of budding flowers about, about to unwrap in a showing of perfect appreciation for all to thrive upon, we are the flowers which can blossom again and again in each season of our deeper and deeper insights…all connected…each better and more healthful than before. It is not unlike Heaven…and it can become Heaven, with enough insight and appreciation.

It takes quite a few sparks, glimpses – spine-tingling moments…as a way-of-life which becomes more and more purposeful…more and more without time or space or distance. More and more there is less and less to hide behind.’

In this writing, the discussion of true health and making the world a better place has primarily been spoken of on a personal or individual basis. The following point brings us full circle to the central thesis of the Bright Beautiful School of Thought: the principle that the world would be a much better and different place if more and more people took true responsibility for their own health and wellbeing – in short, ‘true health through true responsibility.’ If more and more of us are raised and/or raised-up to believe that our most important responsibility is to make the world a better place…a greater and greater majority, what would this mean? The short answer is that it can’t be bad. The whole thing may sound naïve – but if you try to really look at it, it is difficult to fairly and scrupulously find fault with the notion.” (Copyright 2011) — Dr. Glen Hepker
