  2. Hi, I have looked into this. I watched several vides... So supposedly, Jesus was placed in this shroud after he died. Proofs why it is real: - pollen found on it, can be found in Jerusalem (though not only there, in Norht Afrika as well) -the dirt at his legs correspond what found in Jeruslam -flower oils are used as in real Jewish funerals. -the location of the blood on the shroud corresponds to what in Bible. -The size of the shroud seems to be correct (in Sirial units) Could the forger know this? What size of the shroud needs to be? -the image is produced by radiation (high intensity UV could produce it) , a group of scientist concluded, it is not painted. Did he convert his body into light? Rainbow body? - the composition of blood shows the person was tortured and went into a shock (the blood kept its color) - some part of his body looks as it were Xrays (bones are visible) - the material used corresponds to first century - weaving pattern is proper as well Proofs it is not real: - Some scientist claimed the iron oxide shows the paint was used - Carbon dating showed around 1200-1300 What do you think?
  3. Taoist wisdom is for the wise

    I would continue the story. And then Laozi shouted "Fool, you missed the point.That is not enlightlight". The student turned around and look at Laozi.. "A right, then he enlightened".
  4. Taoist wisdom is for the wise

    It reminds me of this... A crow was sitting on a branch of a tree with a piece of cheese in her beak when a fox observed her and set his wits to work to discover some way of getting the cheese. Coming and standing under the tree he looked up and said, "What a noble bird I see above me! Her beauty is without equal, the hue of her plumage exquisite. If only her voice is as sweet as her looks are fair, she ought without doubt to be queen of the birds." The crow was hugely flattered by this, and just to show the fox that she could sing she gave a loud caw. Down came the cheese, of course, and the fox, snatching it up, said, "You have a voice, madam, I see. What you want is wits."
  5. Life is suffering.

    Suffering may come - when the body does not work well , its tense or in pain -when your brain does not work well, external stimuli affects you too much. I think there is a dampening mechanism in brain which lessens the external responses. If that does not work. you freak out at everything.. because it is like having no skin. Everything affacts you deeply -making mistakes.. making bad decisions because acting too fast or because of inexperience. -random events.. or from other people's mistakes -not having enough exercise, sleep, not taking care ofthe body sufficiently -being in a difficult environment -too much stress, environment changes too fast, too much change.
  6. Flying Phoenix Chi Kung

    Can you explain what grounded means? I am familiar with the word and many usages, I just would like to know what is grounding for you. What is it? What is its significance?
  7. How exactly does females drain our Jing

    if you have a traumatic or negative experience with women . Then interacting with them, unconsciously, these experiences can weaken you by causing you tension unconsciously. And this prolonged or strong tension can weaken you. (not women weaken you but they trigger memories). The second option is.. that there are rumours of energy draining possible by anyone (not just women). I think that is less frequent...

  12. Zhan Zhuang and Purple Feet

    So what kind of mistakes can one make doing that?
  13. Searching for qigong teacher

    I think the idea is you do the exercises, get practical experience, then these things are less "theoretical" or you ask Anthony. (such as consolidating Chi). Instead of seeking calmness and mind qualities? I have not tried that approach. So no comment. Wait.. He teaches Zhang Zhuang...several variations. Would you classify those exercises as seeking calmness? I do not know that path. What I know couple of Chi Kung (not talking about flowingzen) leads to calmness for while as a side effect after finishing them. I can say some people like it, some people solve some problems with it.

    I bought two courses 101 and 201... I tried the exercises.. many had effects as "advertised". It means I watched his videos and followed them, tried them... I watched his forum, online meetings.. Sometimes I asked questions. Not saying other Chi Kungs bad... just for an average person, for a beginner he can be quite good. - he does not try to appear perfect , he looks more a normal person, he talks like professor, like a person from university.<---- I like this. - He knows Chinese medicine -He knows Chinese -He has many success cases. -He gives you a framework to work with - e.g. there is martial, spiritual and medical Chi Kung... - He has 5 phase routine that can improve application of any Chi Kung.. This is what speeds up the learning curve and healing process in his opinion compared to other Chi Kung. -He is available , he answers fast in the facebook forum and on his platform as well <---- I like this. -If you enroll in one of his course. He gives you access to many Chi Kungs.., I mean his videos.. so you can try them out which works for you If you enroll a course, you can get lifetime access. The price was relatively cheap compared to how many forms he teaches. -He seems to have a lot of experience. -He has monthly online meeting when you can ask questions... or I listen to these old recorded meeting and learn from them. -He teaches to modify the forms so you feel comfortable with the forms.. Do not force forms by rigidly following the form. (feel free to "butcher" the form he says" -He teaches not to force movements within the forms that are not comfortable.. If you do not force, you can still advance. - He advice looked ok to me.. - he recommends 15 minutes quality sessions.. Have better shorter sessions.. rather than forced, boring longer sessions. -He explains broad range of methods. -He wants you to teach a skill...He introduces these categories /skills, not mentioned elsewhere: consolidating the chi, circulating the chi..etc..... He seems to give a general framework that makes the whole Chi Kung world earlier to understand , not just his.<---- I like this. - He teaches you a lot of Chi Kung , then he tells you to use those which are best for you.. He encourage you to use your own senses and intuition to decide what is good for you. He does not want rigid followers.<---- I like this. Not claiming he can be enough for everybody. No Chi Kung has had the same effect on me. So it is worth trying a couple.
