Looking at Crisis

Crisis = wéi jī  危 机


In English, crisis means a time of intense difficulty or danger.


In Chinese, the first character, wéi 危, means “dangerous”, but the second character, jī 机, means “opportunity”.


So, at the same time as there is a dangerous or crisis situation, there is also an opportunity to make a change, to create more space, to learn in a different way.


Although we may be limited in our physical practice of Taiji (Tai Chi) right now, we can use this opportunity to make our inner practice stronger. We can focus more on the basics and make them more robust. We can do one movement repeatedly or combine several moves to go deeper into our understanding of the form. Use your creativity to adapt your practice to the situation.
