  1. I feel an immortality option may be available soon -- in order to counteract the rising student loan debt. The irony is you'll probably have to take out a loan to get the immortality...
  2. "One cannot run away from the world and call oneself “liberated”. True liberation should happen while living in the world. The Daoist masters call the sage “in the world but not of it”. If we cannot maintain our abidance as the Nondual Self amidst the trials and tribulations of samsāra, we cannot be free. So, the world, should be our laboratory, where we become the absolute and “disappear” the relative, over and over again. Not seeking separation and duality, but rather oneness via unconditional love, for every singe being (and even thing) is nothing but our own Self." Nicely put Dwai ! My own studies seem to confirm this, too.
  3. I'm curious if you crave any of the foods you listed naturally? Not saying you should be, or shouldn't be ... but I'd be interested in your response. I've found myself craving fruits at various times of my life ... sometimes when I've been sick I've craved strange things, and wondered if it relates to yin/yang properties. Good luck
  4. Dao of Dad

    Everyday, I notice I become more like my dad... It's annoying
  5. This is a must see

    Luke put it nicely... I'm not into the style of music, but it was very unique and unexpected. Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of the Master Ren GuangYi instructional Chen style DVDs that had the background music done by Lou Reed (a student of Ren GuangYi) Music and martial arts goes together nicely.

  8. Mental and physical routes to enightenment

    Haha, Nice 😁 I was enlightened, then I had to go back to work... it happens every weekend !
  9. Black smoke

    Thanks for clarifying. Do you see energy stuff often? I know nothing as vivid, you said. But in the past? Some people tend to be more visual with things. Sounds like you were just seeing some energy moving. Did you feel any energy sensations with the exhaling? Did it feel good to exhale? When doing meditation and practices, the unusual and strange does tend to happen more often. I would just caution not to get too caught up in such phenomena, it could mean something symbolic, or maybe it was just you seeing some energy moving. 😊 What’s your intuition say about it?
  10. Black smoke

    I had a friend who was a heavy smoker who would do something similar to yoga's "breath of fire" for a few seconds and then exhale a plume of smoke. Most likely had some smoke trapped in the deep sacs of his lungs, I don't know. It was a pretty cool party trick, and a little unnerving for his health.
  11. xin heart mind

  12. How to become less blind

  14. when you stand, make sure your weight is distributed evenly from the top to the bottom. all of your weight shouldnt be placed on your quads/thighs... it should be stacked and supported by spine, hips, knees and feet... so that no one place is stressed more than another. but yes your legs will shake... i've done tai chi for almost 20 years since my mid teens... and my legs definitely would shake with any type of training for years (more or less)
  15. When I was starting out, I bought a few books on Neidan & Inner alchemy. I read them, dabbled, even had a Kung fu teacher who practiced himself and would give me pointers and tips. But it seemed overly complex, some of the instructions seemed contradictory and in general - just did not sit well with me. Qigong on the other hand, felt more natural and was easy to practice. I went with the easy route... glad I did.
