般若波羅蜜多心經註述 知定註述
And Emptiness does not differ from Form.
Form is Emptiness and Emptiness is Form.”

The empty space shown by the  circle.

Field of awareness or qi field that surrounds our body.

Some refer to this as  “qi chong”  or qi field

 

The full space shown by the square. the physical space our bodies occupy.  The empty space shown  by the circle the minds field of awareness or “wei qi” that surrounds the body.

We use this to help describe the idea that form is emptiness,  and emptiness is form.

The idea of this is that both are interchangeable.  Stillness within movement, movement within stillness refers to this.

Teacher Gao Zhuangfei, explains this and demonstrates the interchange of mind and body.
