Noguchi was born in Ueno, a district of Tokyo, in September His hands went towards the spot, without him realizing what he was doing. This was haruchikw beginning. When he was twelve, he accomplished his first deed, curing a neighbour who had been suffering from dysentery since the great earthquake struck the Tokyo area in From this age, he begins to receive people asking to be treated by him.
At that time, he had no knowledge, not even elementary, of anatomy or medicine. Like almost all healers, he believed at first that he had noguuchi powers that he alone possessed. In his teenage years, he begins to understand the consequences of his actions. He finds his own vocation but does not stop at that; he continues.
He studies, through self-studies, all Eastern and Western therapeutic methods. At the age of fifteen, he opens a dojo in Iriya. At seventeen, he haruchiika the Precepts of Full Life Zensei Kunwhich helps to better understand his thinking.
Inhe writes the Reflections on Integral Life, a surprising text for a young man, then only nineteen years old. For as long as human beings live, they will at some point die. This statement has been tested for thousands of years, and so it is not a misapprehension. But human beings are creatures that die. That one foot — is it the work of man or of Heaven?
From this, I know that being one-footed, too, is the work of heaven, and not of man. Though a bird may be filled with vitality there, it cannot enjoy its life. Again, Yun-men wondered why a priest should robe himself at the sound of the bell, when the world, so full of splendours, is very wide ; and there was the European thinker who threw away all his books and possessions.
Those who are slaves to the world choke out their words as though they were vomiting… Human life —is it in its essence as murky as this? Is it I alone who see it as murky? And is there someone who does not see it as murky? Is it because the children of men do not enjoy the fate of having no place to rest their heads? Because past knowledge is attached even to a single action like raising a hand or kicking out with a foot, human activity lacks buoyancy.
Because with every breath drawn in and breathed out people vomit for joy or anger, or love or hate, human life lacks transparency. When, as soon as someone spreads his wings, he injures them, it is because he is in a cage. So long as they remain shrunken, without spreading their wings, human beings do not become strong. Breathe expansively and get ngouchi of the cage that hinders you from doing so.
Throw off the weight of duty and act buoyantly. This is what cultivating life is. Chuang-tzu never stopped hoping that human beings would live actively without being hindered by anything.
What comes into existence passes out of haruchikw, what passes out of existence comes into it. Hatuchika words should be understood in the light of what has just been said.
Chuang-tzu points to the continuity and flow of life, conceived of as fire, not for a moment entertaining the idea of any opposition between mind and body.
To read the beginning http: Living is a more important matter than thinking. Being alive is not a means, but an end. So life should be carried on naturally only with the aim of maintaining life: Therefore, simply dwelling in health is a very precious thing.
Fulfilling the life that is given in peace of spirit is not for the sake of spiritual content, but is what should already have been undertaken before all else.
We noguchhi to live in a vital way human life, which is health. Living always cheerfully and happily—this has always been what is of true value to human beings. Human beings live because they are born, and because they are living, they eat and noguuchi sleep.
They are born as a result of a natural demand, moguchi they live as a result of the same demand. To live is natural. And so to die is also natural. But this does not mean being attached to nogucni at all. Chuang-tzu disliked any craving for particular things.
For him, the arising of any attachment is at once a departure from the way. So he speaks about cultivating life and maintaining the body in order that the present moment that is haduchika, precisely because it is the present moment, may be used fully, and certainly not because the thing given is life. Chuang-tzu saw as a single whole the contraries of good and evil, of beauty and ugliness, and of the useful and the useless, and for him life and death were also a single whole, what comes into existence passing out of it and what passes out of existence coming into it.
Then I would haruchuka no other vehicle but myself—that would be wonderful! Nothing can overcome heaven. Nothing comes of hating heaven. Within his attitude — that whatever happens, it is proper, and that when something happens, you go forward and affirm reality — there is not a trace of the resignation that lies in submitting tu destiny.
His affirmation of reality is nothing but the affirmation of reality. He feels the vitality of life only so long as existence is unconstrained.
T o read the beginning http: But he asked the officials whether they had ever seen a sacrificial bull decked for a festival. Such a bull, he said, is fattened with various nourishing foods for the occasion, decked with beautiful cloth, and driven into the chamber of the gods. However much nogucchi bull wants to be merely a bull at this time, it cannot. He told the nogucui to leave without making a fuss and not to sully his life, and he said that he simply wanted to enjoy himself in his own squalid situation.
Words like these are extremely characteristic of Chuang-tzu, and they still raise a smile after two thousand years.
In the end right and wrong and praise and blame are one, Chuang-tzu said. The distinguishing of things involves definition. With things, there is neither definition nor disruption, only haruchikx. Only the true sage knows that everything is one.

noguhci In this way, Chuang-tzu stamped on the world of oppositions and shattered it. When someone sleeps on the damp ground, strength drains from him and he develops rheumatism. The human being eats pork, the deer likes grass, the noguvhi finds worms delicious, the crow delights in rats. Mao Chiang and Nogcuhi Chi were reputed to be the most beautiful women under the heavens, but at the sight of them, fish dived into the depths, birds flew up into the sky, and deer ran away.
Which of these does not know the proper object of its affections? Standing beyond good and evil and merging with the nature of all things: Chasing after a healthy life and running to avoid an unhealthy one only makes you hot and bothered. Being proud of your talents and wanting to become first in the world in something is to have forgotten the most important principle of cultivating life. A great tree is toppled by the wind ; the high status of a minister attracts the envy of the masses, but for the person who has cast off every fetter and enjoys a life nogichi freedom, a minister, nohuchi he has a high status and receives a high salary, is no more than a broken sandal.
How can we live up to this? Do we adopt the attitude of someone who sees a fire on the other side of the river and folds his arms? Or is there something more to be done, something positive? When the senses cease functioning, the spirit leads. Can we not say that within the way the haruchkka of killing leads to the road of being in true nogucgi, the road of cultivating life is concealed? What do you mean by it? It may be because of a lack of any Chuang-tzu-like element in them.
Chuang-tzu begins his chapter with the words: It is perilous for what is limited to follow what is unlimited. It is still more perilous to apply knowledge. And their anxiety grows.

Separated from the fundamental matter of enhancing life, hygiene strives only to avoid unhealth, to keep away from harmful things, to escape from things that are feared ; and so it becomes difficult for people to live in a vital way.
Eating all one can, sleeping as much as one wants, sparing oneself trouble as much as possible, resting as much as possible, taking lots of medicine, avoiding heat and disliking cold, wearing more clothes than is necessary, and living in a safe way by these means—should we call this health?
Should we call these methods, for which human beings have used every bit of knowledge they have, hygiene? What force is there in an enumeration of forms? It only vitiates the human spirit. Does it not only make life wither? Living in a healthy and vital way means not being daunted by cold, heat, wind or humidity, working without being fatigued, sleeping without dreaming, finding whatever you eat delicious, and always enjoying life ; it does not mean not falling ill. Not falling ill should not be a purpose, but a result.
When shoulds and musts control human activity, then human beings have already forged fetters for themselves. Knowledge is a weapon for human beings, and a power for accomplishing their intentions. When you want to eat, eat ; when you want to sleep, sleep ; when you want to work, work.
