This point helps us to empty the mind and heart to bring in the freshness and greatness of spirit. It provides a natural connection with the vastness and inspiration of the heavens/spirit. The Chinese say that “the way gathers in the emptiness alone”. This means that our true path is known to us only when we empty our mind so that we can become more aware of our inner wisdom and spirit. The mind distracts us from the insights of our heart. This point provides inspiration and helps us to put our inspiration into action in our life.
