Are You Enjoying Your Taiji

I have this discussion with my fellow Taiji students during a recent training. We were updating each other on the status of our Taiji practices.

I was sharing with him how I enjoy the simple exercises which we were taught during our first Taiji lessons long time ago. Somehow after so many years of Taiji practice, I only started to really enjoy these exercises now.

In the past, Taiji practice was always about what I want to achieve at the end of the session. I was always “after something”; I was always wishing I would get stronger after all these practices.

As my age started to pile on, I begin to realize what my teacher has been telling me time and again, that at the end of the day, even with all his skills, he is only an ordinary person. We should strive to live in the “present”.

And when we live in the “here and now”, we would be able to begin to enjoy the simple things in life. Simple things, like a normal Taiji practice.
