Here is a direct transcript from Venerable Lama Dondrup Dorje’s Video above :
Qi is the eletromagnetic energy which sustains the configuration and integrity of all forms and substances in the Universe. It is the Life Force which regulates the ebb and flow of the vitality of all things. It is referred to as rlung in Tibetan, prana in Sanskrit, ki in Japanese. Aristotle referred to it as the Souls of energy that exist throughout nature where signs of life are to be found.
Qi is the energy of all things, and can be cultivated and directed within man’s willpower and nature. Qi(Chi) when harnessed and directed can heal or destroy. When used in the light of healing, it brings harmony, balance, vitality, strength and enlightenment to one’s being. It is the electromagnetic energy behind all spiritual alchemy and miracle working.
Creating An Energy Bubble
When energy is rooted properly, positive ions reach the ground and displace negative ions.
A human is a blend – a fusion of the two.
When your energy from the lower dan tian connects into the root into the ground – just as when we do the standing posture – it will displace the energy and come back up around you like a bubble. There are ways to create that electromagnetic quality that changes things.
Internal Arts Applications
The Power of Mindfulness
Loving kindness works much better to thwart a physical attack (Qung Fu.)
It is much nicer to be kind to people.
Suddenly the attacker’s intent has gone; his whole body is based on rivalry of energy wanting to push it out. One can change that and say, “that is not important.”
It is much nicer to feel open, and because of that he loses his intention.
If you cannot honestly trust what you say, you cannot say what you feel in the heart matches what you speak.
If your action does not match what you have in your mind, how is it possible that you can ask the body to work with you? So, more practice and more form cannot help you. In fact it will give you a sense of rivalry; “I am better now than before – I am better than so and so.”
The Classical Teaching reminds people that all things are Kong, that nothing is solid. In fact, suffering does not exist. It exists because we give it the power to exist. Why? Your body works towards maintaining the dynamic to support its existence.
That’s why in classical training the first thing you are taught is not about physical exercise, it is about ethics, about conduct, how to behave.
To be sincere means: Whatever you do, act with your heart and your mind 100 percent.
Each goes by the nature of what they have. Since we have a nature that most people don’t realize, you already have a nature, a nature that is beautiful.
Whatever you want, you become that. Because you become that you are not based on rivalry, it becomes, “Let’s merge and get along, lets understand each other.”
Isn’t that the basis of relationships? Relationships between yourself and your partner, yourself and the people you work with, yourself and your brother and sister? Yourself even with the car that you drive, the tools that you use. By understanding its nature so that we can apply it.
The truth about Kong in the Heart Sutra is – “All is of Emptiness.” If you understand how selfless we really are, if you can see beyond that, then you will rise above all suffering. Whatever comes, you will learn how to deal with it, by first understanding its nature. And then by becoming it, part of its nature.
But – before you can do that becoming, you have to learn about sincerity, that is you have to develop this in a way whereby whatever you think and whatever you do matches. That is referred to as sincerity. With that comes insight, which is another word for wisdom that is gained by experiences.
Once you have that, you can learn to cultivate yourself. By cultivating yourself, next you can cultivate other people. And through this merging and working with nature, that is what in the classics is referred to as “Merging with Heaven and Earth.” You are no longer just a human, you are part of everything.
Every person you see, you see them as you own mother, as your own father, as your own brother, as your own sister, as someone who has been you best of friends.
If this is the case, how can you act unkindly towards others?
Act from the heart.
Kong – understanding whatever you feel is important today, tomorrow is gone.
This way, when you come upon good fortune, you accept that and say, “I thank you for this,” and you examine it from an impermanence point of view – that is, “well . . . it is good now, tomorrow will be past its best time,” and as a result you do not get excited about it.
If things are not going so well, “well, I hurt myself and I lost my job.” Examine it understanding the dynamic of cause and effect. That is, whatever happens now is a result of something that has happened before – if that is the case, that means you are responsible for it.
If you are responsible for it, then you say, “I am grateful that it happened, it allows me the chance to purify the defilement in my mind stream.” As a result you allow this to come through, and that is what we refer to as classical Qigong practices.
You don’t start out working with energy first, you start with understanding your own nature, by practicing, cultivating sincerity, cultivating reverence, cultivating humility, cultivating gratitude. This way, all things that you embrace, you embrace with your whole heart.
Kong – reminds us to be humble, reminds us to accept things as what they are. If it is pleasant be happy; if it is not too pleasant, it is ok too. In fact, even be grateful.
Often people say, “who is more kind to you, Jesus or Buddha or someone who wants to hurt you, your enemy?”
My answer always is the one who wants to hurt you.
Through that person, it allows me, encourages me to cultivate more compassion, more insight, more understanding.
Kong is a very useful component to remember.
The fact that I demonstrated today is I hope to inspire, to encourage people to apply this understanding.
I have one very, very simple philosophy: “Help other people as much as you can; but when it is not possible at least do not cause harm.”
Thank you for being here – thank you.
Let it ever be remembered that God is Love and that this Universe was founded upon Love.
Every action and reaction in nature, must be in balance with each other — in order to carry out the purposeful intent of the Creator.
Love expressed by action means balanced fulfillment of its own law of equal giving and re-giving. That is the purpose upon which this Universe is founded. . .
Energetics is how we are interconnected with each other — and with the entire Universe.
Albert Einstein once said, “there is no such thing as ‘matter’ — all is energy.”
It is true. The entire Universe is fundamentally energetic — energy in motion. What we refer to as physical matter is nothing more than energy which has been slowed down. If you heat it up (and thereby speed up its particles) it becomes actively energetic once again and begins to transform.
“Energetics” (also called energy economics) is the study of energy under transformation.
The term “economics” after the word “energy” means a dispensing of energy and how its flowing distribution takes place through its various transformations which are according to the laws of physics — both known and not yet known.
Usually, in our culture, we think of energy as an automatic and unintelligent force. However, there now exists some new insights which must not be ignored.
It has now been discovered that all energy carries with it an information package on many different levels. Physicists refer to this as an “information cloud.”
Let me explain.
A CAT scan, an MRI or a PET scan is able to diagnose the real condition of your health by revealing specific information which is given off by your physical body’s energetic signature.
Your body — and all living things — is surrounded by an energy field. Within this larger energy field are countless smaller energy fields. Each one of these overlapping fields of energy has both frequency and amplitude happening in several layers. These fields interact with and effect one another. So when disease exists it can spread. Likewise, when healthy conditions exist, they too can spread.
There are literally billions of these energy fields radiating and resonating with each other within your body. Each one of them is directly giving information about a specific portion of your body — we only need to tap into it.
Each energy field is specialized. This is real-time information which can be extremely useful for healing the body when correctly deciphered, decoded and interpreted.
Soon, all medicine will be based upon understanding and interpreting those interacting energy fields. And — when those energy fields are found to be out of balance, or weak and not functioning properly, they will be brought into harmony by the specific applications of the proper frequencies and amplitudes of energy. Your physical body remembers how it feels to be healthy and not sick. This is an “AHA” to the body — an insight — a revelation — the removing of a veil which establishes physical health.
This medicine of the future is already here with us and is about to make a quantum leap forward.
Let me carry this one step further.
It should not be difficult, after considering these things, to realize that our DNA is the energetic signature of who and what we are as a complex oscillating biological entity.
Within this basic energy field of every living being exists the perfect record of their entire evolution — which is the development of their consciousness.
And—-each being is similar to all other beings while at the same time, like a snowflake, is totally unique — one of a kind. This is true even in identical twins.
The reasons for this individuality are not only genetic but epi-genetic — that is — environment and exterior events effect our personal energy fields including our DNA signature.
Biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton (and others) discovered that our DNA is the most pliable substance in the Universe. Literally everything effects it and leaves its mark.
ANOTHER FACTOR TO CONSIDER
Masuru Emoto discovered that the same thing is true of water. The energetics of water reveal what it has been in contact with. This can clearly be seen in the crystals of frozen water viewed under a microscope. Pure water produces beautiful hexagonal crystals which are lovely fractals — polluted water produces a dirty incoherent blob. CLICK HERE to find out more.

It is now fully proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that our thoughts have a direct effect upon physical matter. As Einstein stated long ago, “there is no such thing as physical matter and all is energy.” So, now in 2011, the phenomena of mind influencing physical matter is well known to be a common energetic communication between living energy fields. It is a continuous affair — a well established fact of life.
This communication between energy fields is exactly what our interconnectivity is all about.
What is communicated? Information. This could be linear information or holographic information.
How reliable is that information? Its reliability is according to how well we are able to decipher, decode and interpret the message.
This ability depends upon more than cognitive knowledge of the information cloud being interfaced — although cognitive knowledge is important.
It really depends upon how well we are able to GROK the desired information.
Contemplate for a moment the meaning of that word.
The word “Grok” means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed.
Another definition defines it in this way: “to understand intuitively or by empathy; to establish rapport (with)” and “to empathize or communicate sympathetically (with); also, to experience enjoyment.”
Likewise — a very clear and precise meaning of this word Grok, which was invented by Robert A. Heinlein in his novel Stranger in a Strange Land, is simply — “to drink.”
When we drink the desired information — we interface with it in a very thorough way and it becomes a part of our experiential knowledge.
