Keys to the Sublime 24 July 2013
By EarthHeavenHuman - Published on Amazon.com
Although mankind is terrestrial, there can be no separation from the influence of the celestial. The Chinese classics of Internal Medicine discuss the many relationships between the macrocosm and the microcosm of man through the Twelve Earthy Branches and the Ten Heavenly Stems. These concepts are interwoven into almost all aspects of Chinese culture, arts and medicine.

The "Key to the Sublime" lies in the ability to apply the energetic potential unlocked by the knowledge of the movements of the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches. With such an understanding, a practitioner may calibrate the energetic rhythm and flow of an activity, event, or medical treatment. Simply balancing self with all that is.

This particular set of cards is of extraordinary quality. Each card represents not only the individual qualities of each stem and branch but is also color coordinated. This makes stitching together an energetic correlation much easier and more fun. Further each stem and branch has been detailed with the original calligraphy of Master Wu. A beautiful execution and offers visual support for its creation.

Overall, I feel these are great tool for attempting to communicate your thoughts and ideas on the subject to others. A quality set aiding to unlock your potentials.

If you study the Heavenly Stems and Earthly Branches, for your own cultivation or for application in Chinese medicine, you will find these cards invaluable. Very high quality production and Master Wu's calligraphy is beautiful. Also very helpful are the cards in this set that show the the stroke order of the Chinese characters, so you can practice your own calligraphy and get the feel for the energy of each Stem and Branch.

I thought this was a book. It is a deck of Chinese characters some with verbiage on the back.
I can not read Chinese. Not much help for me.
