Gong Hay Fat Choy! Wishing You Great Happiness and Prosperity Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Happy Chinese New Year of the Metal Ox! The Ox year is of hard work and the reward for hard work. Did you do anything last year?? Ha! You survived a pandemic! May you and yours not only survive, but thrive in the upcoming year.
I am so proud of all of you and your dedication to Tai-Chi. Your personal practice and discipline has helped you get through to the Ox year. Daily practice can help in so many ways beyond the stress relief and health giving benefits. Your daily practice will also give you courage and calm, relaxation and resolve, hope and healing, and insight and inspiration.
Master Liang once told me, "Don't be concerned with being as good as Yang Lu-ch'an, just practice." Whether it's a good practice, or an interrupted practice, or your space is small, don't care, just practice.
I'm burning incense for you all, and putting coins in my bank, for the next three days. I'm wishing you all health, wealth, peace, calm, strength, inspiration, prosperity, hope, happiness, and joy! I hope we can meet in person next year and have a demo, ceremony, and another huge banquet!
