 +== Jin-Jing connection 
 +The idea of Xingyi'​s three levels of practice ​came from [[Guo Yun-Shen]] (郭雲深and was systematized by [[Sun Lu-Tang]] (孫祿堂who proposed ​the levels as follows: 
 +# training the Jing to transform into the Qi 一練精化氣,​ 
 +# training the Qi to transform into Shen 二練氣化神 and 
 +# training the Shen to return to emptiness三練神還虛. 
 + 
 +A short look at this list seems to imply that by [[Guo Yun-Shen]] and [[Sun Lu-Tang's]] analysis, there is not a lot of difference between the concept of jing and jin. The actual energies may be different (they are different arts after all) but the concept and terms used to define them are nearly interchangeable. However for consistency it seems to be fair to write //jin// when talking about [[Xingyiquan]] and //jing// when talking about [[Taijiquan]].
