Position of the Tongue
The tongue is the bridge between the two channels, the Functional and the Governor. They are separated by the tongue. There are three positions for the tongue. For the beginner, place the tongue where it is most comfortable. If it is uncomfortable to place the tongue to the palate, place it near the teeth. The correct place is called the “Heavenly Pool.”
The place near the teeth will produce air (wind) and will make it easy for you to fall asleep.
The top of the palate before the palate is the Fire Place. If touched for too long it will make the mouth and tongue feel dry.
This is the Heavenly Pool position about 1.5 inches in front of the teeth, stimulating the salivary gland that is under the tongue. The Heavenly Pool has two pools, which in the Tao system connect with the perineum Sperm Palace and the K1 Kidney, the Sole (Bubbling Spring). It connects with the kidney and runs up past the heart, so these two pools will stimulate the kidney and sperm energy to rise up past the heart and enter the small brain and the Pituitary Gland, which transforms it into brain energy. This will later on become Nectar and strengthen the heart energy.
