  1. Semen Retention: 100 Days and My Experiences

    "in my understanding sexual union and self-realization actually have a lot in common given it is a lesser expression of the greater merging between Heaven and Earth". Sexual union and self-realization have about as much in common as fire and ice. One requires absolutely nothing but being endowed with a sexual organ that works while the other requires complete and total mastery of self. "Sex can be something sacred which raises us up or something that keeps us locked in our heavier desires". There is no difference to be made between "heavier" and "lighter" desires because those simply do not exist. Desire is desire, plain and simple. "Sex can be something sacred which raises us up or something that keeps us locked in our heavier desires". Sex is never sacred, it is profane. Always! Tantra is the devil's Path, so too, all that Mantak Chia (forgot his name) stuff or "dual cultivation". Mantak Chia is nothing but a sexual vampire, a black magician stealing life force from the women he sleeps with. "however most of the chi Kung masters I am familiar with are married". Chi Kung masters are not Buddha's or Lao Tzu's. But I must have misunderstood you, I thought you had chosen to become celibate. Sorry, never mind then, forget everything I have said. I am not one to discuss or debate spiritual matters as we all walk our own path in life and I feel everyone should mind his or her own spiritual progress I'm out.
  2. Poll: Why do you keep visiting the Taobums website ?

    Ridiculously funny poll! Cheers.
  3. Semen Retention: 100 Days and My Experiences

    I don't understand what Taoists mean by "dual cultivation". As long as you are still wanking or having sex only without cumming, you aren't cultivating anything but your way to Hell. From a Buddhist perspective, it is pure evil to "cultivate" things only to live longer and feel more energy or whatever. These are nothing but ignorant egotistic goals and you are abusing deeper wisdom only for self gain. If one's goal is enlightenment, as long as desire is not completely extinguished, true enlightenment can never be attained. Ever. Celibacy is the Way and I know this is not what you want to hear Taoists, but YOU CANNOT HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO As a wise man once said "the lies taste sweet at first and bitter at the end, the truth tastes bitter at first and sweet at the end". And I take my hat off to you, Oldchi, you have found the Way. If one is practicing the Way correctly, one will realize by himself that celibacy is the only true Way. Very few people who are not in a monastic order are able to realize that. Consider yourself blessed! (Carnal) desire keeps us enslaved, forever and always.
  4. Hi! Hi!

    Maple Syrup?!!? Have you been eating Space Cake Cookies? You seem to be hallucinating, I have said no such thing
  5. Addiction to Lust/Porn/Women

    Those who spill the seed foolishly, those enslaved by lust, those enslaved by desire, they will never attain enlightenment. Not in this life or the next. Never. Ever. Sit in Zazen and lust will stop emerging. Sit even more in Zazen and eventually all lust and desire will have been extinguished. All these people talking about not eating certain things, not watching tv or spend time on the internet in order to avoid being aroused simply cannot face the 10.000 things with a calm heart (mind) yet. Sit more! Sit! Sit! Sit! Wankers are nothing but humans walking the demon's path! How perverted has humanity become.....weak iniquitous perverted behavior is praised and considered "normal" and a master of self control is laughed at. "He who conquers himself is greater than he who has penetrated a thousand women whether in the flesh or JPEG variation". You can't run from the eternal law of cause and effect that governs all. Either you will get to enjoy hell or you wake up. Your choice.
  6. Hi! Hi!

    Thank you for your kind welcome, Basher. Cookies make you fat, please don't say I didn't warn you.
  7. Hi! Hi!

    Hi all, I am from a place between Heaven and Hell and like wearing clothes when I go out. Furthermore, I practice Zen and enjoy reading about cookies instead of eating them. They always make my mouth dry. This forum looks very interesting with lots of people doing and talking about interesting things that I too find very interesting which sparked my interest so much that I became interested in joining so that I can share some of my interests in the hope that it may interest you. Furthermore, I have decided to give up on being human, humans are weak and iniquitous and most of them are demons in disguise. Meditate I shall! Thank you.
