  1. Umbrella or Enema ?

    I still think your crazy, Nungali! 😀
  2. Gospel of Thomas

    Cool stuff Tom. Actually, Taijiquan and other internal arts have the same theory when it comes to physical fighting. Maintain your center 😊
  3. Gospel of Thomas

    This one sounds like a Star Wars line
  4. Gospel of Thomas

    103. Jesus said, "Congratulations to those who know where the rebels are going to attack. [They] can get going, collect their imperial resources, and be prepared before the rebels arrive."

  6. Karma/Kidney connection

    I’ve noticed the importance of drinking a lot of water when clearing. Not sure why, but I suppose as one flushes our spiritual junk, it also clears the body on some level too. Cool theory.
  7. Let's Scry!

    Yes... first there is a mountain, then no mountain. But the “mountain” returns after that. Isn’t that a Zen saying? I know what your saying... not to get attached to the images. But it’s my view that there is more to it than just ignoring it.
  8. Let's Scry!

    Is it possible to discover the secrets of yourself through books and study? Or is a more direct, all-in approach necessary? Exploring the depths of your soul and looking into the abyss? I don’t know if Buddha worried about that stuff before he sat under the Bodhi tree? I suppose the path isn’t for everyone though.
  9. Let's Scry!

    For those who dare, I suppose.
  10. Let's Scry!

    What kind of risks do you mean?
  11. How Not To Be Negative

    “As above, so below” can also be translated to “As within, so without” If you think the world is full of liars and jerks, that is what you will experience. Imagine if someone lies to my face, and I know they’re lying... and to accept them anyways, with the love and knowledge that they ARE a part of me... They suffer and struggle like I do... maybe much more. And maybe, if i accept their faults and negatives with no prejudice, that light would continue like a ripple effect. Not only would it continue, but it would reflect back to me. I would be different from other people they meet. I may be the thing that changes them fundamentally. And it all starts with me.
  12. Chen Tai Chi : How To Learn

    No point in finding any teacher if you have this outlook... How are you going to learn if your cup is full?
  13. Chen Tai Chi : How To Learn

    Where are you located, what country or area? Any teachers close by? Structure and alignment are quite important, once you cross hands with someone who has any skill this becomes obvious. You cannot build a house without a strong foundation. That being said, structure is a formula which remains relatively the same no matter what internal art you study. There may be slight variations among traditions, but the skeletal structure is universal, despite style. After this basic structure, there is the shenfa or body method for each style. For instance, Xingyi generates power differently than Bagua. Are you able to learn an art from DVD? My answer is: Kind of. There’s detailed resources out there, even the distance training. Maybe check out Richard Clear. He does an online school, and he has skill. As long as it gets you moving, twisting, going within and relaxing into your movements, it’s beneficial. Also reach out to someone close by who does martial arts (any art) and try to practice with them. We grow much more with people then by ourselves. Peace brother! Have fun with it 😊
  14. Daoist or Chinese Music

    Yes that is one way. Another way is the “Follow” button at the bottom.
