The Lung Meridian is part of the Metal phase in which energy is contracting and becoming solid.
The Lungs use contraction to inhale oxygen to nourish the blood and exhale carbon dioxide. Trust, hope and letting go are keywords for the Lung meridian.

In the Five Element Theory, Foods can be divided into Yin and Yang, which corresponds to Acid-Alkaline in Western science.

The acid or alkaline quality of our blood is measured by a Ph factor. A Ph of less than 7 is acidic while above 7 is considered alkaline.

Most illnesses and disorders are caused by our blood being acidic. In order to maintain health, our blood and body fluids should be slightly alkaline with a Ph between 7.3 and 7.

 Can you tell which red circle is larger?

While it appears that the red circle on the right (surrounded by smaller blue circles) is larger than the one on the left, both circles are exactly the same size.

In other words, what you believe you perceive does not always correspond with reality.

Which is why, when you compare yourself to others, you need to be aware that all things are relative.
