The Ordinary

Wang Xiangzhai

“The extraordinary is really ordinary!” A saying that Wang Xiangzhai, my great-grandteacher of Yiquan said to his students often. Another way of saying it is extraordinary is really just ordinary with extra on the front of it. Seems people are looking for the extravagant and powerful events and things. Reality, if looked at, is more wonderful than we initially assume . Just take this principle along with ‘No Secrets’ and play with it. Apply them to standing, for example, isn’t just astounding that we can walk and stand when most other creatures on earth live on four legs! Another example is breathing. Go ahead with these principles and have fun you’ll be mystifyied when you look at life this way.
