行氣/Xingqi – Circulating Qi

行氣,深則蓄,蓄則伸,伸則下,下則定,定則固,固則萌,萌則長,

長則退,退則天。天機舂在上,地機舂在下,順則生,逆則死。

Deep then gathered, gathered then extended, extended then lowered, lowered then settled, settled then solid, solid then sprouting, sprouting then growing, growing then withdrawing, withdrawing & yet Heavenly. The Heavenly beat is rising, the Earthly beat is lowering, follow this & live, oppose this & die.
