In the preceding breathing exercises, you have been asked at certain points to circulate the Microcosmic Orbit. Your life-force energy thus must be circulated through specific pathways in the body efficiently and safely to be used for healing and growth. The Microcosmic Orbit circulation uses the power of the mind to help activate the sacral and cranial pumps into pumping the life-force energy throughout the body.

It is much easier to cultivate your energy if you first understand the major paths of energy circulation in the body. The nervous system in humans is very complex and is capable of directing energy wherever it is needed. The ancient Taoist Masters discovered that there are many channels of energy flow. However, two energy channels carry an especially strong current.

One channel is called the "Functional" or "Yin" Channel. It begins at the perineum, the point located at the base of the trunk, midway between the testicles/vagina and the anus. It goes up the front of the body past the sex organ, stomach, organs, heart, and throat and ends at the tip of the tongue. The second channel, called the "Governor" or "Yang" channel, also starts at the perineum but goes up the back of the body. It flows from the perineum upwards into the tailbone and the sacral pump and then up through the spine into the brain and the cranial pump, finally flowing back down to the roof of the mouth.

The tongue is like a switch that connects these two currents— when it is touched to the roof of the mouth just behind the front teeth, the energy can flow in a circle up the spine and back down the front. The two channels form a single circuit that energy loops around. This vital current of energy circulates past the major organs and nervous systems of the body in a loop, giving cells the juice created from organ energy and smiling energy that is necessary to grow heal, and function, and spreading vitality throughout the body. This circulating energy is the Microcosmic Orbit, and forms the basis of acupuncture. Western medical research has already acknowledged acupuncture as being clinically effective, although scientists admit they cannot explain why the system works. The Taoists, on the other hand, have been studying the subtle energy points in the body for thousands of years and have verified in detail the importance of each channel.

There's no magic bullet that will make you slim down without trying. No particular diet that lets you eat a big amount of food and drop pounds quickly. No ab-machine or exercise bike that you see at three fifteen in the morning on an infomercial is truly going to make that much difference to you.
