  16. 16. Throughout the whole body, the intent ( yi ) is on the spirit vitality (jing shen), not on the qi.If it on the qi, then there will be stagnation . These words are very strange. They imply that the qi is not important, and in fact,it is not. When the qi reaches the highest level and becomes mental energy, it is called spiritua power ( shenli) or “ the power without physical force “. Wherever the eyes concentrate, the spirit reaches and the qi follows. The qi can mobilize the body, but you need not will the qi in order to move it - Zheng Manqing

If one reaches the third level then one forgets the opponent and self, the body and mind do not exist but become empty </li></ul>

  23. 23. Ting and Zhuangzi Yan Hui said: may I ask you about the purification of the mind heart ? Confucius said “ When you unify your will ( zhi- 志 ) You do not listen with the ears, but listen with the mind-heart. When you do not listen with the mind-heart, but listen with the qi, listening will stop at the ear and the mind-heart stop what tallies with it. As for the qi,it is that which being empty , awaits things . Only the way accumulates in emptiness. Emptiness is the purification of the mind -heart
