In Nostradamus quatrains there are at least three in which are described specific issues, related to the training and nature Qigong.
[III-2] Le diuin verbe pourra a la substance,
Comprins ciel, terre, or occult au fait mystique
Corps, ame, esprit ayant toute puissance,
Tant soubs ses pieds comme au siege Celique.
The divine word will give to the sustenance
Including heaven, earth, gold hidden in the mystic milk:
Body, soul, spirit having all power
As much under its feet as the Heavenly see.
The gold of the knowledge about qi has been hidden till now in mystic attires. Yet, only thanks to qi,
"body, soul and spirit" could be genuinely powerful. There comes a time, when the people learn about
the objective truth about the substance - the invisible, but material energy, intrinsic to all things, to the
humans and the whole Universe, in order to overcome their problems. Indeed, only qi - the most
profound original substance, of which are construct all things in Nature, has the power to transform
their quality, and thus, the direction of their development.
[IV-25] Corps sublimes sans fin a l'il visibles,
Obnubiler viendra par ses raisons,
Corps, front comprins, sens, chef & inuisibles,
Diminuant les sacrees oraisons.
Lofty bodies endlessly visible to the eye,
Through these reasons they will come to obscure;
Body, forehead included, sense and head invisible,
Diminishing the sacred prayers.
In the process of qi cultivation, the fine matter of energy becomes visible for the human eyes. The
obscurity in the understanding is due to one's insufficient knowledge on the natural truths. When one
practices qigong, however, in the state of profound meditation one stops to feel the body, mind and
the senses ("forehead included"), which as if become intangible, while the consciousness at the same
time attains extraordinary clarity and unisonwith Universe. Then, one realizes that one should not rely
only on prayers and like the children always to beg for something from his Father, but one should also
rely on his own work and endeavors in order to achieve his health and enlightenment.
[V-96] Sur le milieu du grand monde la rose,
Pour nouueaux faits sang public espandu,
A dire vray on aura bouche close,
Lors au besoin viendra tard l'attendu.
The rose upon the middle of the great world,
For new deeds public shedding of blood:
To speak the truth, one will have a closed mouth,
Then at the time of need the awaited one will come late.
There should not always understand the words in their direct literal meaning. Here, the word is not
about shedding of blood. The new deeds, which are able to transform the people and the Path of
humanity, demand to "give blood", i.e. to exert great endeavors. Efforts and work are required.
In order to change one's life and behavior, one first will have to realize this necessity and change his
way of thinking. To understand the Truth of life, to understand the Human and the natural Way
toward the further evolution, and the interconnections between humanity and the Cosmos. However,
in order to cognize the Truth and then to "speak" correctly for it, one first will have to master and
utilize the right method for its achievement: to relax "with a closed mouth" and eyes, so that to let
one's inner matter restore qi (energy), which will help him to attain health, mental harmony and
enlightenment. In other words, one has to practice meditation. Yet, namely this quiet exercise is the
most important in the system of qigong.
