Yes, and they also felt their dependence on the changing seasons. In the course of time, they learned to adapt themselves better and better. Above all, there was respect for nature, which was evident in the development of nature deities in all cultures. With the emergence of numerous cultural techniques, the feeling of being superior to nature then developed. This led to the development of religions that were and still are monotheistic.
Survival originally required mindful observation of natural processes in connection with changes in the sky. As hunter-gatherers, they gained experience of what was good for them and what was not. The first evidence of themselves is known in the oldest cave paintings from 70000 years ago. Around 5000 BC, the first written characters appeared in various cultures, then entire scripts. People felt the need to communicate with posterity.
The most important basis in written form in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine is the book: "the yellow emperor" some 2600 years before Christ, in which the collected knowledge of the time about health, illness and healing is described. (This standard work is still available in new editions today.) This book can therefore also be seen as the basis for the "Universal Healing Tao©" developed by Grand Master Mantak Chia, a complete health system ranging from detoxification techniques to the highest levels of meditation.
Back to the subtitle of this article, this means that people explored themselves in connection with nature, gathered knowledge and wanted to pass it on first orally and then in writing. There are relatively good early descriptions of human anatomy, found in China in an over tomb from 2000 BC.
The focus is on balance in all areas of life, captured in the terms yin and yang. Concrete exercise instructions can be found especially within the UHT in the "six healing sounds" and in the "inner smile". The control and direction of the energies in the body is practised with the "Small Energy Circuit". When these three areas are learned, much stress in life can be absorbed and reduced. This is especially important in this time of worldwide uncertainty due to new epidemics, warlike activities and economic change. Understanding oneself and also being able to protect and help oneself is an increasingly important aspect. Through the totality of the exercises, one can increase the ability to concentrate, an intensive feeling for the body's internal processes and functions. This means building more self-understanding and self-confidence. It leads to the ability of more self-healing.
In the highest levels of meditation, the connection between body and mind takes on greater importance. Transformation and longevity techniques are taught in several stages. This leads to a greater awareness and sense of responsibility for oneself, others and for the preservation of nature.
Ideally, the study of the Universal Healing Tao© System leads to conscious life-sustaining and ethically responsible behaviour.
