REN XUE translates as the "Science of Human Life". It is a holistic system that takes its roots in ancient wisdom culture, contemporary philosophy and modern science. REN XUE is a tool for improving our health and wellbeing. Created by Yuan Tze, REN XUE is an invaluable science which can help us understand what the "laws of life" or underlying principles to a truly healthy and happy life are.
The two practical applications of REN XUE, Yuan Qigong & Yuan Ming Medicine rest on Yuan Tze's profound understanding of human life. This reference system for life differs from our conventional understanding at a fundamental level:
In REN XUE life is seen as a totality of body, mind, heart, QI and Shen.
The physical part of our life (our body) and the non-physical parts of our life (our thoughts and emotions) are inseparable aspects of our life. Together they form an ever changing totality. The body is not a separate entity from all that affects us on a daily basis. We live in it and every emotion and feeling we have affect it. So it would be more accurate to think of our body as the physical storehouse of all of our life. This also means that for life to be healthy and well, we need all the different aspects of our life to be healthy and well.
Furthermore, life is more than just the totality of body, mind & heart. Another essential aspect of our life is that which creates : Shen or in other words the source of the consciousness .
If this is a new concept for you, take the time to ask yourself:
Who is the creator of my thoughts and emotions?
Who organizes the thoughts I am having right now?
Who/ which part of me is right now able to observe my thoughts?
At the source, behind every thought or feeling coming into existence, there is someone creating the thoughts and the feelings in the first place.
Most of us are not aware of this aspect of our life yet it is this part of our life which has the innate ability to create health and wellbeing and restore our life to a state of balance. When we practice Yuan Qigong we learn to align body, mind and heart to Shen generally creating & experiencing immediate benefits.
It can be helpful to note that the way we think about health and life today is for a large part a natural product of the scientific developments which have been unfolding over hundreds of years in the West. Developments in mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology (including human anatomy) and chemistry have transformed and influenced our views of life and the world. Today we mostly operate and live within a physicalist (the real world consists simply of the physical world) or materialist (matter is the fundamental substance in nature, and that all phenomena, including mental phenomena and consciousness, are results of material interactions) framework. As might be expected our modern healthcare system still mostly reflects this view. Yet these framework upon which we have built our knowledge and understanding of human life are models or tools and as such they cannot represent the totality of human life.
REN XUE is simply another tool and is proving itself to be both a safe and effective modality. Do you want to know more about it?
