Grandmaster Tse’s Wing Chun Note 319
First Section of Síu Lihm Tào 小念頭 Pt 4
Once we are in a relaxed position, our mind will start to relax as well. The brain will have more blood supply and so the mind will feel better. Now bad thoughts, stress, worry, that are caused by tension in the mind will disappear. As we relax and more Qi comes to the head all the worry and distracting thoughts will change to normal positive thoughts. If we have problem that has been on our mind, we may find solutions and answers to them. So we will still have some thoughts during the first section of Síu Lihm Tào 小念頭, but these do not bother us because we are relaxed, the body is full of Qi and especially because we have more Qi to our head, the thoughts that come we can treat as normal. So an empty mind means we do not have any distracting or worrying thoughts that bother us while we are practising. Then we can focus on the Tāan Sáu 攤手, Fuhk Sáu 伏手 and Wuh Sáu 護手 movements of the first section and not let the mind slip away.
