THE WORLD

The dancer in the center of this card represents freedom of the soul.  The circular microcosmic orbit if complete and unified at the top of the head (acupoint Bai Hui) as well as between the legs (acupoint Wei Yin).  This is depicted by the red ribbons joining the two green garlands together.  The green garlands show that spiritual energy circulates along these two energy channels making them one.  We see the spiral as a flowing cloth around the youthful maiden in the center.  A state of joyful bliss and peace is the reward for completing the alchemical works.  Finding union of heaven and earth within, the spontaneous qigong practitioner knows him or herself to be in unity with Nature and one with all of existence.
