One of the hazards of practicing so called 'Internal Martial Arts, or concentrating purely on Nei Gung (Chi Gung), is the tendency to start focusing inwards all the time.
It's all well and good learning how to feel what's going on inside your body, and working out how to control it, but in the end, if it never manifests outside, you are just masturbating.
I have heard the Taoist view that the physical body is a gateway to understanding the 'higher' levels of human consciousness, pain and cold for instance are very immediate and real things to experience, and as such the physical world is the arena you practice in first - harder to delude yourself when there's real stuff to deal with.
But here's the thing, it's absolutely possible to be totally in your physical body, incredibly in tune with it, yet completely disconnected to the moment you are living in, what is going on around you, or have an ability to move with that moment.
Higher meditation practices often imagine a connection to the edges of the universe, or to infinity, but trust me, you'll certainly be deluded about that if you can't even connect to where you are right now, what you touch, the ground you stand on, or the space you move in.
Everything you do connects. You are a part of it all, not separate.
