This is a flow of sort that never changes. It is situated in the tantien area and can be larger or smaller at given times. It is like a ball around which Qi flows in all different directions. From this, lines of Qi are sent out automatically to all parts of the body especially when the body needs some extra help. As we grow older and we dip into this pot of Qi, it becomes depleted and we die. There are many practises that advocate the replenishing of this Qi, but one would have to be a saint in order to do this. It is my belief that this is a natural occurrence and the cause of our dying of old age. We can prolong life to a certain degree by practising things like Taijiquan, yoga, meditation etc., but to prolong life indefinitely I believe is impossible. However, I m open to suggestion on this.
