  1. And a common way to experience this is to work with the heart center. So does the text speak about the method, or the result?
  2. I do not follow that book, but what I stated above is a part of my actual practice. Don't use those terms though.
  3. Actually, infered from the quotes above, it is possible. Maybe not from the full context, that is another matter. But do you have a better interpretation, or do you just have no?
  4. No it is not. The first part states it is the heart, the MDT. The Golden court might as well refere to niwan, from the quote above. And the chamber of water might also be in the head. So, still a matter of interpretation.
  5. A good Mo Pai thread draws attention.
  6. Center amidst conditions could be interpreted as the empty space within the ring of yin-yang. As in this LDT image. But, as in all these books, it might be a code for whatever, and thus up to interpretation. And I obviously placed the picture inside the quote.
  7. David Verdesi might be interesting. Going from mo'power to : I think this is an interesting shift, and an interview based on this might be interesting. But questions might have to avoid some of the history surrounding him (that was diplomatic).
  8. By forcing afro-americans, hispanics and asian to join so that there will be an acceptable mix?
  9. When your cup is full, use a tankard?
  10. I am sure most asian teachers today are aware of the risc of their Western students filming themselves on their hotel room after class, and having a contract with their editor before sitting on the plane home. Annoying for them, interesting books for the rest of us.
  11. David Verdesi on the subject.
  12. Sometimes TDB can be a critical place, mainly because of the huge amount of experience ammensed here. And that experience that makes a teacher seem really special within a school is rather common here, where there are teachers galore. Now it has been 20 years since I messed around with a katana, and I never progressed beyond the basic level, but that grip has not been on the "do"-list in any book I ever had on the subject nor been advocated by any teacher I ever had the opportunity to practice under. But there are many ryu in Japan 🏯 and many levels of skill, so......
  13. POWER Does the POTUS feel the same?
  14. Because everywhere else on the site, everything and everybody can be questioned, but that might create difficulties in a spot for "recognized teachers".
  15. And they can describe themselves in their own PPD section.
