Regulating the Mind
Regulating the mind involves calming the mind, calming the emotions and learning to use your mind to guide and direct the flow of your CHI - Energy. A major goal of the Tao masters was silencing the mind. The Taoist Exercises help in working on achieving this goal. Silencing all the thought processes of the mind usually requires a real effort of will power applied over a substantial period of time. One reward for calming down the mind is our increased ability to concentrate. This results in becoming able to learn techniques to focus inside of ourselves and get in touch with our organs.
