  3. Death and the afterlife.

    the truth is the buddhist and taoist have the same believe in many aspect also it lead to the same path.The difference is that we dont understand enough the explanation on the dharma .Sometime the dharma quote a few sentence but have thousand of meaning but we manage only to understand a few so this is where we are confused.Hope this help you understand the situation.

  6. Death and the afterlife.

    we are actually can control part of it or reduced the cause of happening if you know how but frankly speaking I would rather agree with you because it will take years or many cycle to understand it.Its quite a complicated and hard to understand because it involve karma issue.

    yes there is heaven and hell and animal realm so it all depend on your karma which place you should go.Nope they will be reborn as different physical form but still carry with them the wisdom and merit they learn and earn on this life.

  11. What is the best Qigong lineage to start out with?

    sorry i didnt say something from the book but all I say was from my own practice and wisdom.Nope teacher cant show all because its also depend on the limit of each person like what you say because if I am gonna teach you something that you dont understand then it will make the matter worst.So a good teacher will teach according to the student limit.Yes I agree with you that we the only one know how it feel when things is not working but a good teacher will notice you when you have a problem.Well not all are born with this ability because some of them dont even recognised your practice and your religion.So we are born to according to our karma not to the same believe and practice.Sorry to bring out the word karma.
  12. What is the best Qigong lineage to start out with?

    Well a real chi kung practioner is the one that know how to regulate the chi.So you need to understand what is the chi doing and how we can absorb the chi and regulate the chi.Well you need a master to tell you how.But thats not the case some of them are blessed with the capability or in other words its naturally having this capability but didnt realise what its but this its just a small number out of few thousand .
  13. Become Taoist Priest?

    ok and you are right that we dont need to perform ritual to be a good taoist practioner
  14. Looking for some legit advice on Kundalini and cultivation

    well first you need to understand what is kundalini?its the external force or the energy that flow in to your body.This energy will guide you in your body such as moving your hands,head and your body as well.You need to have some experienced teacher to tell you what is this and that so that you can progress further.Its good that you practiced this but you just missed the understanding of it.You see every meditation also you must understand what its and how it affect you and what is the benefit of it and how can you achieved it.There is actually every answer to all your meditation practice and everthing that you gone through.To me you have a good start because you are connected unintentionally to the external energy so you are destined to achieve it.Once you understand what you are practicing then you will find it easy and relax and thus you will have more confidence on your meditation.My advice is keep on asking question if you have doubts so that you can understand better.I will be glad to help you as long as I am here.
  15. sorry for me breathing doesnt play any significant role at all because I am using the nature energy to practice my meditation.
