  1. It is a well known fact that there are several similarities among very different religions. Religions so distant from each other like those of ancient Egipt, Greece, buddhism, christianity, etc, they talk about similar things like a heaven and a hell. If I am not wrong, they all say that the sould is immortal, that those who live well are rewarded in a next life, etc. How do you explain these similarities, as well as others? Do you think there is such a thing as a future life, and that after death we are rewarded depending on our beahoviour? I have always thought that this is a lie, but now I am beginning to wonder if there can be some truth in it. Otherwise it is not logic to think that ALL these religions with all their sages are wrong, and modern materialism with all its faults is right. Also I find it difficult to explain how all these religions could know these kind of things, like the immortality of the soul? How did they know all this? Maybe they could have some kind of superior knowledge that the average man of today can't have
  2. Xiang Gong - Fragrant Qigong

    I want to share my experiences after more than 3 months doing fragrant qigong. I have done level 1 for three months, and just this has improved my health and wellbeing a lot. It gives you a lot of energy, and it cleanses your stomach very well, among countless other benefits. Now I am doing level 2 too, and it seems it has great benefits as well, but I have only been doing it for the last few days, so I must rather wait more to make a good judgement. But it does seem that it is like a beauty therapy. I have learnt it throught Sifu John Dolic, I bought his dvds, which are a good help. Also, I want to say that I have taught level 1 to some friends, and they all fell much better after doing it. One of them even admitted to me that in just a few sessions it healed a problem he had. So I strongly recommend this style of qigong to everybody, as it is as simple as efficient

  7. Qigong ranking

    Shibashi maybe? I m sure this can be found on the internet
  8. Qigong ranking

    In 1997 and 1998 the chinese government in two different studies claimed that zhineng qigong was the most effective for healing purposes. Does anybody know which qigong systems ranked second and third and so on? I can't find this information on the internet. I guess it can be found in chinese more easily, but I don't know chinese

  11. Eyes in esoteric practices

    so you want to see naked women at distance, don't you? :P:D
  12. Eyes in esoteric practices

    This is a very interesting and important topic. I would be happy too if somebody with knowledge regarding this is kind enough as to share it with us!
  13. Eyes in esoteric practices

    Very interesting topic. Many yoga and qi gong teachers tell us to look at a certain spot all the time. Even if eyes are closed one should have the eyes focusing on the top of the nose. Maybe I am wrong, but I think this is done because it is a way to relax the eyes, and thus calm down the brain. In NLP they say that when you think you move your eyes. When you think visually your eyes normally go up, when you think auditorylly they go to the sides, and when you think kinesthetically or you have an internal diallog they go down. NLP has some interesting theories for people who do qigong or meditation, and they themselves are influenced by these. So from this I would conclude that to focus somewhere with the eyes fixed and relaxed is a good way to relax the brain and the nervous system
  14. I absolutely agree that negative thoughts are a constant in the majority of people. Honestly, I don't know why this is so. Maybe they are useful to protect our lifes from an evolutionary point of view. If we consider the bad possibilities then it is more easy that we can manage them if they finally become real. But also our western lifestyle promotes negative thinking. Our stressed lifes, our incorrect breathing, all our social prejudices and other bullshit, all this can contribute to negative thinking. And it is very important to eliminate this negative thinking in our daily lifes. This change can improve ourselfs quite a bit. Casually, I am reading a book now about NLP which deals with techniques to eliminate negative thinking
