  1. Potent Systems

    I have developed a revolutionary concept that might be helpful. 1) Pick a system, any system where the main instructors have developed the qualities you are striving for. 2) Learn from an instructor, and continue to practice that system only so your bodymind get shaped by that system. 3) Learn more about that system, and practice the hell out of it. 4) Continue for a decade or three. I call this the Mudfoot approach, and to be able to use it dial 1-800-GIMMEYOURMONEY and I will licence you.
  2. Buddhist Practices vs Taoist Practices

    I fill my belly with beer. From my waist down, it feels like I am walking on slippery Mud. And my head is full of spirits, my awareness seems to be shifting and unable to focus. 😁
  3. "I am created Shiva, the Destroyer; death, the shatterer of worlds. Who is this dog meat that dares challenge me?"

    Dead tree zen beware. 😁
  5. Anti Lord of Death steel underpants sale !

    I think the trees are stressed out as well. What do you have against poor defenseless trees? Or is is an anti-buddhist agenda I sense, "let no man, woman or child ever again become enlighted under a tree"? ðŸĪŠ

    If we are going to face the Lord of Death, we all need to get a grip. Does that come with the underpants?
  7. Meditation sickness and related deviations

    If you start practicing IMA as a combat art, there is nothing that say you automatically become "spiritual". You might just become a hardass fighter.
  8. Buddhist Practices vs Taoist Practices

    The pictures on the altar. Yes, Mantak Chia's methods might make you slightly genital in your focus, and there are Vipassana groups where you are forbidden to do yoga or qigong, but in between that you will find many practices where you will have a harder time to see the differences.
  9. The Complete System

    Well, no. There is actually a theoretical model about how these frameworks grow and include the old but expand beyond that , I am relatively sure it was written within the context of Kashmir Shaivism since that is the only area I have been reading up on the last few years. I don't remember the specifics, think of it as bla bla bla Brahma into Vishnu into Shiva something something..... 😁
  10. The Complete System

    So you need a framework that is all inclusive. Personally, I like the Recognition Sutras.
  11. If you see trees popping out of the ground you probably are hallucinating. If you refuse to leave your home because you are afraid to be impailed by one of those trees, psychosis seems to be a relevant diagnosis. And someone in Mental Health care sort of have to check out if someone with hallucinations is on the verge of developing psychosis, so their first option is not to see it as the reactions of a healthy mind. On the other hand, many people hear voices, see weird things that cannot be externally validated, or have derealization or depersonalization experiences without this being diagnosed as psychotic reactions. Unfortunately, sometimes the diagnos comes to fast. In my neck of the woods, we follow younger persons more than six months before the diagnosis schizophrenia is used, just to make sure it is not something else.
  12. Cold water in the ear (caloric test) gives some people that kind of experience.
  13. In that case you do not have an impaired reality testning, and neither the ICF nor the DSM will call your experiences psychotic.
