Eastern medicine is rooted in an ancient Chinese culture. In this lineage there are five spirits, one connected with each major organ: the heart, liver, spleen, kidney and lungs. The Po is the spirit of the lungs.
What follows is a brief summary of the po, the spirit of the lungs.
The Lungs rhythmically expand and contract, functioning to exchange gases and regulate fluids. This predictable, necessary rhythm reflects the give-and-take of ordinary, day-to-day activities.
The spirit of the lung is the Po. The Po is the aspect of your spirit that dies when your physical body dies.
The lung is associated with autumn, in the time after the harvest, as the life cycle draws to a close. We are aware of this on a subliminal level, as we observe these changes while moving through the natural world around us.
The emotions associated with the lung are grief and sadness. These are the emotions that accompany loss, all loss, both great and small.
The Po’s expression in strength is the ability to know right from wrong. We make choices all the time, but there are rare, tangible moments when confronted with doing the right thing, and you choose to do the right thing, even if it has a certain “ew” factor for you, and no one is looking.
The Po’s expression in weakness is a normal reaction in loss: feeling vulnerable, and not having clear boundaries with others.
Speaking your truth, and speaking out against an injustice when the moment asks for it, are two ways you can strengthen your Po.
