Xin, Effectivenes of Practice

Whole set, 1st cross hands with focus on the tailbone. A video Limin saw provided an opening to talk more about Xin in the context of buddhism;     Xin determines whether practice and meditation are effective.  A person may be said to have a “mean” Xin, or “gentle” Xin.  Xin is encumbered by thoughts that affect Xin itself.  One may meditate for years without progress because   Xin  is  clouded, is not quiet, is not at peace.
