THE CANDLE ANALOGY
Shen is represented by the light that radiates from the burning candle. The purpose of the candle is to light the darkness. Your Shen is the radiance of your spirit. When Jing and Chi are in abundance, Shen is released.
Chi is represented by the flame of the candle. It can smoke or burn brightly and evenly. Your Chi is your vitality or daily energy. It provides the source of light; however, it eventually consumes the candle. When your Chi is used efficiently, your Jing lasts longer! Chi is easily depleted through daily activity and when a person is healthy it is easily replenished with sleep, nourishment and breathing.
Jing is represented by the wax and the wick of the candle. The quality of the wax and the reserve of wax available for burning determines the life of the candle. Your Jing, which is determined by your genetic inheritance and your deep energy reserves determines your longivity. It takes a long time to deplete Jing and it is extremely hard to replenish.
