  1. I didn't know Marbs like a lot of the longtime members did, but I always loved his presence on this forum. Whether he really had something to say, or he was just singin' for the sake of the song, he contributed a whole lot to this page. I know that he really loved chuang tzu, so.. O Marbleberry gate, How Could you? O Marbleberry gate, How Could you? Already back in your true form, You've left us here in the Human!
  2. Nei Kung is Bullshit

    Sound quality is great, and so is the sentiment shared.. I think anyone who doesn't share this opinion of nei kung either doesn't know what they are talking about, or they're trying to sell me the 11 minute enlightenment 4 disc box set for 3 installments of 29.99..... Cheers!
  3. What are you listening to?

    Autumn air, a big ol' spliff, enjoying all of the colours.. What a lovely sunday afternoon. Hope you're all enjoying yourselves today
  4. Thank you for the insights. It was just what I needed, exactly when I needed it. Reflecting on this reply before bed tonight. The last paragraph really struck a chord with me, as I know that I will never understand what I seek intellectually, but sometimes "I" forget and end up back here looking for intellectual ammunition, and entertainment. It was a divinely timed reminder. I have accessed some very bizarre and powerful states of consciousness through various means, but because I do not follow a proper method or have a teacher, I have always let my mind runaway amuck shortly after the experiences. I'd attempt to intellectualize and verbalize something so extraordinary that trying to speak about it is really not possible, which is why IMO some of the classics seem so fucking confusing ! It is confusing as all hell. Even the most bardic of masters, as eloquent as they may have been could not do proper justice to any of it, although the pointers are helpful... Every passing day, it sinks in a little more that finding a proper teacher and following a proper method is the most important thing you can do in this work.. Talking about it, thinking about it, debating about it, it seems pointless. And my interest in it all is waning. So much of the time there is really nothing to say, yet we do anyways.. to sound interesting.. to be agreeable.. to posture.. to distract ourselves.. Stirring up red dust and getting it in our mouths. Anyways, ramble over. Thanks again, I truly do appreciate the thoughtfelt response. I should hurry up and sit now Your brother in Dao, Kyoji
  5. I also don't reckon they would agree that the sky is blue if scripture said that it was pink, doesn't make the sky less blue.
  6. to be fair aren't most fundamentalists misrepresenting their own religions anyways?
  7. What are you listening to?

    Claypool can do wrong. My biggest inspiration for ever picking up a bass.
  8. What are you listening to?

    Saw him in Vancouver around 2 years ago now... amazing show. Very fortunate to have seen such a legend at my age.
  9. What We Think We Know

    Say it louder.
  10. Synchronicity and the flow of time

    That sounds amazing @Spotless ! i'm sure this goes without saying, but enjoy yourself. there will be without a doubt plenty to learn, and unlearn respectively. I wish I knew more about physics and it's overlap with various practices within daoism /other traditions, but i'd most likely end up using it as some kind of intellectual ammunition to convince people I'm not completely woowoo My spidey senses do however tingle when I read certain things about physics, even when I don't understand them intellectually.. Hard to explain. I am still fairly young and have time aplenty to learn more. There is just so much I don't know!
  11. Synchronicity and the flow of time

    This is a great TED Talk ( unsurprisingly it was flagged by TED like all of the good ones ) , that is semi related to this topic but I think everybody would enjoy it regardless of it's overall relevancy. My friend shared it with me last night. Anyways, the synchronicity he mentions is rather uncanny in my opinion, and I just can't at this moment in time chalk it down to coincidence or randomness, along with some very strange ones that have surfaced in my life.
