And furthermore, my prostate problem seems to have improved. I can now pass urine freely. My stomach problem is improved too ---- I no longer has vague abdominal pain.
Nevertheless, there are two areas in my goals that I fail to accomplish so far. Firstly, the ear-ringing persists despite diligent practice. Secondly, I still fail to complete the Microcosmic Orbit --- the route of energy running up the spine and back down to the navel in front. Although I feel the energy as heat every-time I meditate, the heat spreads throughout the body so that it cannot concentrate in the micro-cosmic route. My teacher says that due to the many weaknesses in my bcdy, all life energy generated by meditation is consumed right-a-way to correct the bodily weakness ---- leaving none to circulate in the Microcosmic Orbit. One day, when most of the bodily weakness are corrected, I would have excess life energy to circulate in my channels.
