  4. Story of Atlantis Part 1 - Ice Age and Deluge

    Its not the time. Its the man-hours available. There could not be enough man-hours in ancient egypt to both maintain the normal livelihood of the nation and to dedicate enough man-power to the project, during any reasonable duration of time.

    With the clouds the harvest snow has came, now is the three coldest decades, It’s the time when the mountains are snowed over and closed. I am so sad and depressed all alone in the mountains silent, All day long not a sound of human speech. Under tattered robes in two layers, I huddle in cold sitting alone, all night long so miserable with no end. Still no way to sleep, the sharp wind pierces the cracks in the door. In the morning it is time go beg in the village some food, by the spring on the narrow path I spy jade leaves forming berries right in the ice. Blowing on my icy hands to get warm I am despising myself, This my body of filthy bones and mundane flesh all is bad. Day and night all the time harries me with the hunger and cold, makes me long for transcendence of life-death from the morning to night. It is only my will I rely on, to push open the door to the ‘heart-moon of thousands kalpas past’.

    No. But it used to be a great place to make fun of the angry neidaneers. But now the angry ones are gone, only a couple of the good natured ones remain, and its just not the same. (sigh)

    Well folks you are all right and all wrong at the same time. LYM does have a very physical practice except its not what you think. And his main practice was non-physical one and its not what you think either. Which is all good, because you would not like nor the former neither the latter. Peace out!

    he did, in a sense that dan for him was a means to an end: " The ancient saints used the term of golden elixir (dan) to describe the numinous nature that is true, bright and inherently full. This nature is called the Great Limit by the Confucians, by Buddhists it is called the Full Realization, and by Taoists it is called the Golden Elixir. The names are three but the reality is one. The Confucians practice it to become sages, the Buddhists – buddhas, the Taoists – saints. "

  23. Transmission: Useful? What? Where? How to?

    The name Shakers, originally pejorative, was applied by outsiders as a mocking description of the group's rituals of trembling, shouting, dancing, shaking, singing, and glossolalia (speaking in strange and unknown languages). The first documented use of the term comes from a British newspaper reporter who wrote in 1758 that the worshippers rolled on the floor and spoke in tongues. http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Shakers
