89 On Transforming Energy II

Beloved Dharia,

The shaktipat of initiation is what in Chinese mysticism is called Gong.

This Gong often creates the experience of bliss.

You absorb ki in meditation to transform it into the energy of transforming yourself, and unblocking yourself.

In other words, the natural state is one where ki flows evenly through you.

Your interpretation is correct: there is nothing you can do to acquire gong.
In Christian mysticism receiving gong is what is called the "state of grace".
This is what is called the Mahamudra.

But by working with your ki, which really just means being meditative, you bring yourself into a state of being an adequate vessel for gong.
