Although somewhat more veiled than Bardon — according to the symbolism of the system — it would seem likely that four elements mastery must also be an important part of Indian, Tibetan, Japanese and many other initiatic traditions. And what of the apparently different approach of Chinese and Taoist systems — apparently having evolved entirely differently from four element systems — that contain the notion of five elements, fire, earth, metal, water and wood? How are we to understand the differences, is there a direct correlation or mapping between the two? My first consideration of these differences started from a viewpoint put forward by Eric Yudelove in his book, The Tao and the Art of Internal Alchemy.

For instance: The Yoga Journal - Jan. Lin has since relocated the crystal ball to the inside of the temple. As far as Taoist Yoga is concerned, Charles Luk states in his "Taoist Yoga": "The whole body is negative yin except for the 2 eyes which are positive yang. It is due to this small amount of positive yang in the eyes that man is not overwhelmed by the negative yin. This positive yang should be used at the beginning of alchemical training to root out all latent ailments that have accumulated in the body.
First sit in meditative posture until your mind is settled and then place a crystal ball in front of you in such a position that it is neither to close nor too far neither too high or too low but in line with the spot between the eyes. After gazing at the ball for some time tears will flow; they are saline and smelly and are the residue of inner combustion similar to tears caused by feelings and emotions such as sadness, etc.
Slow Fire also called Calming Fire is slow abdominal breathing. Quick Fire helps to get the tears to flow. This Slow Fire is called Calming Fire whose charactheristic is to cause immobilization. While doing this your tongue should plug the heavenly pool in the palate. The crystal balls being discussed here are quartz crystal balls not glass.
These balls should be clear or almost clear. Generally the larger the ball the better, but this is not always the rule. However, upon recently checking I found that flawless crystal balls are being exported from China where else? I find them to have the same qualities as naturally occuring quartz that are carved and polished into ball shapes. These crystal balls are available online and are pretty inexpensive.
Smaller balls are alot cheaper. I would recommend at least 4 inches. Check around on Ebay. Glass crystal balls can work well for skrying but they lack the energy of quartz crstal, which seems to come "alive" when properly used.
Crystal balls are tools par excellance for concentration and meditation, aside from any magickal purposes. I urge you to try using a quartz crystal ball. It is part of the Taoist tradition.
But there are many different forms of yoga, including techniques practiced in secret by the Taoist masters in the Far East. This is not just a book; it is an entire, fourteen-week course in alchemy, healing, and magick. In order to do this you will learn many breathing techniques, including hair breathing, reverse breathing, bone marrow breathing, and several more. In the West, most people think of sounds as merely being music or, when put together in words, a way to communicate.
