  1. An opinion or observation of madness

    That is to be expected. Normal flu doesn't cause serious cases in the summer anyway. This virus is the first one (since probably the spanish flu pandemic) that keeps on killing in the Summer.
  2. An opinion or observation of madness

    I am curious, how many deaths due to common flu , in the US, did you have during last summer? 5? 20? Otherwise yeah it is a common flu...... Nope!
  3. Yes pass!!! I do not wish to converse with people like ilumairen who are certain. The more advanced one is, the less certain things are. Welcomer1984, remember, it all starts with doublespeak. As for the joke about unicorns, it is just anecdotal evidence. Did you get offended? I am offended that you took offence.
  4. In my whole life i have only seen as many women admit they are wrong as the times i have seen pink unicorns, farting rainbows.... So yes, you know better. Pass.....
  5. Nice playing around words but that is not what you said. Since you know better than the Buddha, I will pass....
  6. Maybe. I don't have hot flushes but the other two maybe. I have a weird feeling on my throat. It shouldn't be going anywhere in the first place because it happened when i wasn't practicing at all nor doing SR. I am doing fragrant at the moment so i can't meditate to let it sink except maybe in GF.
  7. The electric feeling seems to arise from the basis of the tongue going upwards. It feels like a constant buzzing in my mouth. Maybe not buzzing but slight trembling for sure.
  8. I have a similar symptom but the energy rises from the front so it is unlikely to be associated with MCO. My guess is that it is yang chi going up the "thrusting vessel/channel". It is also unmistakable when i assume any zz position. I haven't seen any of the sideeffects mentioned by freeform or by Damo (yet). @freeform any thoughts? I wasn't practicing the days it triggered and it is active for most of the day.
  9. Xiang Gong - Fragrant Qigong

    The government promotes styles that lack a supernatural element. There is nothing "medical" going on with the Yijinjing or the baduanjin version that is promoted by the CCP. They are plain exercises, nothing more than their western counterpart, isometrics. Are they "good for health"?, yes but so are isometrics, callisthenics, stretching etc. Did you never wonder why there are no pranayama exercises, promoted by the CPP, for example like "9 bottled breaths"/"nine purification breaths"? Some of those have no visualisation and no "supernatural" elements while clearing the channels (which are a big part of TCM which the Chinese government promotes at every corner. Double speech? you bet!)
  10. Not 100% true. Samsara can be exited through other realms but it is easier to do through the human realm. Do you have a link to the mentioned video?
  11. Xiang Gong - Fragrant Qigong

    @Cleansox @SirPalomides I have located the list in the past (in Chinese) but it eludes me right now. What i have found is this list https://2009-2017.state.gov/j/drl/rls/irf/2007/90133.htm Where Xiang gong is listed by name. The allowed styles going by memory were Taichi qigong, Yijinjing, Baduanjin, Five animal frolics (not the spontaneous form), 6 healing sounds. This isn't the whole list.
  12. Xiang Gong - Fragrant Qigong

    Can you tell me what the source of the surge that creates Fragrant water is then? If he is really dead then who the hell creates that powerful wave? I am not convinced at all that he is dead, plus Xiangong is in the list of Forbidden styles of qigong. So take what it is written about it with a grain of salt.
  13. Who says that you can't meditate? It is explained in the pdf that putting attention on the movements affects the way chi moves. The same goes for visualisations of energy in ZZ.
  14. Not true for fragrant. Fragrant can't be combined with standing which has visualisation or sitting which has deep concentration(trance states) or pranayama exercises. You can do moving qigong which doesn't involve unnatural breathing or visualisation.
  15. An opinion or observation of madness

    This isn't a coup but disobedience/mutiny. Well if we take Rome as an example then, Sulla did the unthinkable and marched his legions over the Rubicon. Every other powerful general after him asked himself the same question "If Sulla did it, why can't I?" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulla
