  11. I have found myself (on more than one occasion) missing my arguments with a certain member who chose to leave, and who I actually liked in spite of (or perhaps because of) the ongoing arguments.
  12. It was pitted anyway, and couldn’t be reposted by a member even if they wanted to. Such threats aren’t welcome here.
  13. Why wouldn’t he, with all the calling to bow at his master’s feet?
  14. Because, for all his training, he seems incapable of minding his manners. Oh my stars! After being banned, and allowed to return numerous times (only to return to the same behavior which led to the previous banning), he is now permanently banned, and there will be no more returning. As cleansox pointed out, anyone wishing to post with him can do so at original dao (linked in the following post for any interested parties convenience):

    Hi KingSven, Glad you decided to join in the discussions, although there is certainly nothing wrong with lurking - some of our more long term members lurk more than they post. Welcome.

  17. Hello. What to do?

    What you were supposed to do here was write something telling us a bit about you. The question mark tells me very little. So, what brought you here? What are you looking to learn and/or share? What are your hopes in joining this community? I am going to approve your account, even with the amazingly scant amount of information shared, and hope for the best. Welcome to the bums.

  25. New member here wanting to start the Tao path

    Hi MPENA, While (as a female) I typically avoid the topic of semen retention, I have seen more than enough posts from men who have developed issues while following what they understood of Mantak Chia to feel comfortable strongly suggesting that self learning (this) through books or videos tends to be a precarious endeavor I would personally advise against. There is a wealth of information here on your other areas of interest, and I would suggest focusing more on those. Your account is approved. Happy exploring, and welcome to the bums. You will find three topics pinned at the top of this sub forum regarding rules and expectations, please make sure you’ve read them (if you haven’t already done so). warm regards, ilu
