Cosmic Inner Smile
Smiling Heals the Body
The Inner Smile is a powerful internal healing and relaxation meditation.
Deep relaxation dissolves physical and mental tensions that can cause
energy blockages and unhealthy Chi. The Inner Smile enhances the energy
of the organs and glands, our life force in general, and stills and
focuses the heart and mind (hsien). It makes us more aware of our
body and inner being, because we learn to communicate with our organs,
glands, spine and other specific parts of our body, as well as our
soul. Taoist discovered that consciousness is rooted not only in the
brain, but also in the vital organs and in a more subtle sense, in
each of the cells.
Smiling to the organs and thanking them for the
work they do will reawaken the intelligence of the body. We are
often so out of touch with the body and emotions that we do not
notice inner disharmony developing until it finally manifest itself
as a serious illness.
Practicing the Inner Smile daily lets us look
inside to keep in touch with the state of our inner organs, our
Chi, our breath and emotions. We can spot problems at their inception,
making it easier to balance the emotions and virtues.
