The ancients assumed that the body was a reflection of the Spirit. Rather than the body having and energy, the universal energetic of the self develops a body. In this context there is not question as to whether we are eternally energetic in nature. Thus, the practice of Qigong supports us in re-associating with the eternal aspect of ourselves that is irrevocably well not matter what the body is experiencing — an aspect of the self that does not get sick and does not die.
