Example text

Introduction Zhang Jiebin ordered his texts slightly differently to Hua Shou: (1) Nurturing Health (hygiene), (2) Yin and Yang, (3) Zang Imagery (conditions of the zang organs), (4) Pulse and Colour (facial complexion), (5) The Jingluo (the energetic channels), (6) Branch and Root (outer indications and inner causes), (7) Qi and Taste (energetics of diet), (8) Discussion on Treatment, (9) Pathology, (10) Acupuncture Needling, (11) Cycles of the Energies (cycles of qi) and (12) Summary. And Li’s approach was different again to Zhang’s.

When the ruler and ministers listen to each other, the country might be saved; while if they neglect their duty, the country (or body) will be lost. Describing the pulses, Suwen 20 states: One on its own is small, is sickness; One on its own is large, is sickness; One on its own is fast, is sickness; One on its own is slow, is sickness; One on its own is hot, is sickness; One on its own is cold, is sickness; One on its own sunken, is sickness. A pulse standing out ‘on its own’ under the finger signifies something unusual or discordant – seemingly different to the touch.

Whether this pattern is expressed as yinyang, wuxing or li is practically irrelevant. Remember Li Zhongzi’s poem from Forest Mirror Hall ? Man with a cluttered mind displays thinking, But a thought, without a cluttered mind, starts to produce Man. When Man’s mind becomes uncluttered, it is vast, beyond thought – Ending thought – suddenly your sight gains great clarity! This is a perception of the patterning of li. The yinyang function displays both integration and separation, synthesis and analysis.
