  1. Paintings with a Wow Factor

    Rockwell Kent "Lump of Coal"
  2. Jesus from Siberia

    Thanks Lois, this is interesting. I have not heard about this person. Very touching moment at 7:00, about how it feels to hold Jesus by the hands))) Indeed, so far it all looks like the original Jesus. It only remains to see how his story ends
  3. Jokes

    Yes, I also thought this way. George Carlin was a mighty artist. But I think if someone would told him about Taoism, he would laugh on it too
  4. Warning!!!

    Interesting. I also read it not as a "mantra," but as a "mandala at first time." It reminded me how once upon a time I read a description of one practice. Where a person contemplated a mandala in front of himself, then he projected a mandala into a certain part of his own body (by his own mind). Thus came the invitation of a certain deity within himself. Then it seemed a little creepy to me ... what if suddenly someone else would respond to the invitation. For example, someone from the world of "not good spirits".
  5. Dealing with heat

    Heat is not the best time to practice the big tree. But if you need to cool down, then the best option is air conditioning! Even on hot days, you can practice in the very early morning, when the air cools naturally, or practice near a lake or river.
  6. Jokes

    It is amazing how many intersections with the Taoist path in this sequence!
  7. What are you watching on Youtube?

    An old video about "modern art". Old, but still funny to watch it.
  8. Yes. After watching this topic, I also decided that it is time for me to go and do something equally attractive in my kitchen.
  9. Those poor Victorian era wives

    Wish, to do the same, but with pants. This could be enough to not worry about anything.
  10. Living in the Anthropocene Age

    True! Unfortunately this is so. This state is so far from harmonious. I would even say they are polar.
  11. Road Trip

    Great trip. Thanks for sharing. Motorcycle ideal vehicle for such a road. That case when the bigger the car, the bigger the problem
  12. Living in the Anthropocene Age

    I think this is true. Those who pursue big profits will never stop this process on their own. There is many processes in their hands, and most likely they will go until the end, and will not stop. It is necessary to get change the consciousness of many people , then the value system has changed, new people should be carried away for their ideas got the masses, and then it will be possible to rebuild the world. But this seems to me almost impossible. Usually big changes occur after major disasters, when the old is destroyed to the ground and appear the possibility to build a new one. It seems to me that the most realistic scenario for the return of humanity to nature is a huge planetary catastrophe. After which everything will be destroyed, and the land will be devastated. Nature will slowly recover and the surviving people will be able to start building a new world. Humanity will be forced to return to nature. Perhaps we, as humanity, are going back to nature in such a paradoxical way - bringing the world closer to a catastrophe, bringing everything to the limit, beyond which there will be drastic changes and everything will turn 180 degrees! After all, according to Taoism, this is the law of our world - the limit of yang gives rise to yin and vice versa.
  13. What did you buy recently that does the job !

    Perfect solution! I dreamed of such a portable device when I was working far outside the workshop. Cypress pine boards also look perfect. Good deal!
  14. The Cool Picture Thread

    Thanks for this photo. It looks very unusual and incredibly beautiful. Where is this place?
  15. I have always believed that dance is an excellent physical exercise that combines mental activity and simultaneously involves the whole body. And really, dance often implies a certain degree of inner harmony, harmony of movements and balance (as rightly pointed out in the article). And from the point of view of the principles of Qigong, Dance can certainly have a strong therapeutic effect.
