Hi Fred,

Thanks for your clarification about the dragon and the pearl.

When you mentioned "The ball knows the heng Jin" in your previous post, were you talking about 渾劲? I thought you were talking about a different jin. I thought I recall some people talking about 横劲, or something with a similar sound.

Thanks,
Audi

Hi Fred,
"渾" in a simplified character as "诨",the phonetic symbol is "hun".
The literal meaning is : one integrated mass, a unified entity or an integral whole.
So "hun Jin" is the Jin released from one integrated mass, a unified entity or an integral whole.


I realize that I missed your explanation. Thinking about "hun jin" (渾/诨) in this way makes more sense to me and corresponds better to what I understand from my practice: understand jin at the gross level first and then refine it to more delicate and precise levels.

Take care,
Audi
