You always have to make sure where you are standing. We are focusing on the basis of everything and nothing else. It is possible to provide people temporal satisfaction by acting on phenomenon appearing on the surface. However, it does not exist the fundamental gratification for both there.

What we are aiming for is the permanent satisfaction and joy. Only those who know the existence of the basis can bring this. As in the Suwen, this is the root of all things, the dynamic power itself. As closer we reach to the basis, more we are aware that we are already holding everything in each one's hands. This is what we are longing in acupuncture.
