  3. Evidnece for the super natural

    evidence is everywhere via direct perception. but you might be waiting a while for science to prove this.
  4. Pot Noodles

    i don't think this one has any actual beef in it just a flavouring. and a mighty nice flavour it is just looked at the pack there are trace amounts of beef powder/bone broth, unfortunately.
  5. Looking for wisdom on semen retention

    energy must first be balanced through the subtle body with a level of virtue as basis for cultivating energy. otherwise when you turn up the volume sexual kammas will scream the loudest.
  6. Pot Noodles

    after a deep discussion earlier in the week I felt prompted to make this post. the best one i have tried so far is as follows... currently on offer for £1 a pot at sainsburys (UK supermarket - normal price £1.75). the 'Pot Noodle' brand was mentioned but that is a truly vile, lower echelon of nutrition and as practitioners we must be at least somewhat careful what we put in our bodies.
  7. Pandemic Panic - Transcending the Fear

    the economic damage which will effect all manner of things namely people's quality of life, as a result of the lockdowns, hasn't even begun to play out yet. nobody can claim the lockdown has been a success until much further down the line and presuming it won't have been the straw that broke the camels back. granted most of the problem is our debt based system where wealth is funnelled to an increasingly small number, but this trend will only increase as the printing presses are turned up in response to the 'crisis', 'recovery' or whatever they call it. we tread closer to an inflationary bust where people's savings are wiped out, negative interest rates, employment remains an issue for years to come. if you grow food in the garden then great but there's a bigger problem than the virus on the horizon and it's coming time to pay those debts. some lives have been saved but at what eventual cost? and will society be more free or restricted in that scenario? forgive me if this is conspiracy territory but the economy eventually means something when food prices start to rise and people are more dependent on the government.
  8. Pandemic Panic - Transcending the Fear

    lockdowns are certainly a fear based response and have no real basis in anything beyond control. just thought i would add that because it isn't compassionate to sacrifice the many to protect a few. in case there was anyone here who supported such measures. better to shield the vunerable in other ways than shut everything down which will cause much more suffering in the long term, both in deaths and degrading people's quality of life.
  9. Where is Jeff? I would like to contact him

    kot meet pettle.
  10. Where is Jeff? I would like to contact him

    i think apech already said it. but there is a crowd for which shortcuts and dabbling in the ethereal is attractive. end of the day there are no skips with this stuff. problem is if you're lucky enough to be open to 'astral' level experiences all the more reason a solid foundation is important - cultivating equanimity & concentration before any widening your awareness. stuff that helps you in the here and now while prepping for anything else that becomes visible. from my short experience jeff's stuff was very much something is going on but dunno wtf is happening sort of deal. no insight there on the contrary.
  11. Daoist way to leave porn addiction?

    might also be useful to google 'nofap' and look at all the stuff that's been written about porn addiction (increasingly common) and the methods people have used to overcome this particular habit. dare i say you'll probably get more mileage than anything eastern or more esoteric in nature unless you're really good at connecting dots and/or can find an in-person teacher.
  12. Daoist way to leave porn addiction?

    sounds like one step along the way is loosening ones grip on how you feel about this particular habit and predicament in the first place. less fuel on the fire, as it were.
  13. Daoist way to leave porn addiction?

    try forcing yourself into a new environment, go on a trip or a retreat for a week or two. it's insightful to have some sort of detox and how it feels when you're unable to boot up the porn for a while. maybe find employment that forces you be around people and breaks some of the anxiety. also cold showers. can be a long path if you've buried a lot of stuff under this addiction, seek guidance from a teacher if possible. getting grounded and sinking energy is something to work on if you've spammed your brain with all this stimulation and arousal. good to have an exercise routine and make a habit of going outdoors daily.
