  1. Fraudulent teacher?

    You need to feel the truth of what you are doing, both for yourself and if you teach. And you have a considerable amount of experience good or bad, to work from.
  2. Fraudulent teacher?

    Many teachers that are recommend on TDB do exactly the same thing and if you listen carefully to what they say, they often drop hints, if anyone notices. The fact that you care at all makes you a candidate for a good teacher. Make straight what is crooked ! If you wish to teach then think carefully what and why, and what you have that is valuable to teach. For things you are unsure of test them or discard them. If you wish to learn then choose carefully, and perhaps you can find someone from whom you can repair the rotten wood with fresh wood. Or alternatively start again. Life is like this. In all things be more conscious and make a man of yourself. What good is clinging on to lineage anyway. There are great men in the world, surely they stick out clearly. There are certainly many qigong sets that are without copyright and which are effective and can be taught, but they do have to be learnt. So ... how did you find out about what the teacher was doing ??
  3. Valentine's Day Sucks!!!

    6But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.7For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
  4. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that… but you have no right to judge me. Horror has a face… and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and mortal terror are your friends. If they are not then they are enemies to be feared. You have to have men who are moral … and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling … without passion… without judgment… without judgment. Because it’s judgment that defeats us. - "Kurtz"
  5. Freedom or Bulls***

    If you achieve the state of wholeness of oneness of total integration from Heaven to Earth you become the blade of life, and on the edge the quintessence of life will sharpen. Where is your freedom. You are occupied, you are total. In society the word "freedom" is often used for "leisure time" which in actuality it is a time of meaningless degeneration where as you consume so you are consumed, rather than nourished. And this "leisure" you are allotted between your economic tasks that are designed by the insane monkeys in their domesticated dream world of misery. One should not wish to be free. But to BE. And then to know what to DO. And then to DO IT.
  6. Saving the World & Solar Energy

    Unfortunately the quality of tap water and other resources are decliningj year on year. Ultimately it is not a recycling / energy problem.
  7. The Small Creatures

    As I sit here, in the garden are many small creatures. Many of them are struggling for their lives. Right now. They fly, they crawl for them they must struggle every second to harvest, to collect, it is their only choice, and their only chance. We monkeys are clever, over the billions of years we have worked out a way of giving ourselves "leisure", free time. And we inherit it, the knowledge, the technology, the world systems. We stand on the shoulders of many generations, eras and societies, and we harvest and kill many creatures we devour the Earth in order to gives this to ourselves. And what shall we do with this time. After we have taken so much, we have been given so much. Our "leisure" time is the product of many hands. What shall we do with it ? Are we worthy of it ? Or shall we p*** it out the window ? Do we even remember that something can be done with it ?
  8. Modern Taijiquan Sucks!

    There is much bullshit in this world, and there is also much desperate bullshit. Better to train well in something simple but real than badly in bullshit. The best teachers are not teachers, but students who work hard at their own studies. There are 24 hours in a day, instead of looking for shortcuts, look for longcuts. And if this is not what you actually want to do, no problem, stop. Ask yourself what you actually want to do, and then do that instead.
  9. Quantum Intent & Manifestation

    Let us know how you get on ...
  10. Modern Taijiquan Sucks!

    55secs "Take that person out with one or two weak spots in his body" ... scratches nose (knows it's bullshit) 5mins onwards, number of fat man kicks .... he's totally off balance and looks to be in poor shape. Then all the DVDs etc... well everyone has bills to pay It's all good, except I value my life. The whole problem is the idea of learning to fight which is more of an old man's fantasy about lost youth. Then using Taiji as an excuse to be fat and out of shape rather than actually training for combat. Then not having any higher goals for yourself. Life is seen as a place to gather tricks.
  11. Living Hobbit Wild

    I would like to live more in nature no electric, like a hobbit, witnessing the seasons and so on. Can anyone recommend a place to go ? I think I am not going to do it alone but if there was somewhere to join ? thanks
  12. God is creative and he creates through the Male+Female > Creation. Which is the fundamental action at all planes and levels. Anything that exists participates in this, and there is not choice not to. If one has a problem with this then the real question is "why am I deranged ?". And the answer is that the entire species is deranged which gives rise to the mass unhappiness and ridiculousness of mankind, a pretty sorry looking bunch of hobbos that frankly embarrass the other creatures on the planet who don't have a large table of mental health conditions that they are proud of. Because of this derangement humans perform the Male+Female > Creation at far lower levels then was intended to. In fact as the human being is so deranged and seems unable to perform his creative activities as a whole being, what happens is that he fragments into small parts that attempt to perform creation trying to salvage something. Which is a bit like a deranged Quantum Physicist finding work repairing vacuum cleaners. Human beings have finally deranged almost all of their Creative abilities, and we can see this in how much pride they take in their systems-for-healing-self-inflicted-illnesses-through-wilful-stupidity, or medicine. It is also true that the state of mankind being so primitive is strongly influenced by the seasons and celestial movements, of which they once upon a time had some knowledge of, but having invented a fashion for destroying all information gathered by previous generations in a joyful festival, and then walking around wondering if something is missing whilst their societies fall apart ... what can be said except : "few escape".
  13. If he's so qualified why are you on here asking if you can eat all the unhealthiest sh** in the supermarket ? Anyway, goji berries are the easiest way of fixing this problem.
  14. Modern Taijiquan Sucks!

    Yes indeed and shortly after Silberstorff defeated the 3 guys, 3 more guys came out the bar and beat the living shit out of him. Violent people have ways of ensuring they win, you can forget the idea you are going to be met by an old man in a mac who wants to dance Tango with you. That's not how it's going to be. So, I suggest if you want to fight you do something different. And if you do Taiji you set different goals for yourself then winning fights.
  15. [DDJ Meaning] Chapter 40

    Does not take into account consciousness, and also seems to be standing on certain Constants that through measurement over time are not constant. Therefore it is unsound. Being is born of non-being simply means that when you move beyond the ordinary insane mental identity then you are in non-being (a different place), and that's where real life happens. The limitation of floury words is obvious and a real teacher of meditation will transmit to you states of reality energetically.
