"Emotions" are just momentary knots formed in Ki-Energy, the Primordial Resonance that flows through your body like a two-sided waterfall with an infinite vortex in the center. By practicing Haragei or some other form of Ki or Qi training (T'ai Chi, or Qi Gong, anyone? How about some sword practice or shakuhachi playing?), an ordinary dull person becomes capable of untying the knots and dwelling in the clear flow of Energy itself. Such a Tao-imbued Sage is called "one who rides a white tiger on the winds." Dropping all reliance on "thoughts" is the Gateway to this Vastness.
