  1. It's about the foolishness of harshly judging anyone for anything. One automatically does the same to oneself. Like someone said, "Hitler got a bad rap. All he did he was compelled to do". Judgment is natural, but judgment that moves into hatred and unforgiveness is not good for one. I certainly judge the German Nazis of WW2. Even if modern "Nazis" or fascists, who are flourishing worldwide like a disease out of control, are too far gone to recognize their moral worthlessness, "good" people need to hear the judgments that can help them confirm the difference between right and wrong. Watching the war in Hong Kong, which is awful but understandable, I'm compelled to go deep, here anway, to come with some kind of answer. Unfortunately, the protestors are karmic victims of the CCP, but that karma has been coming, definitely since the 1997 handover. The clash of core values, democracy vs fascism, is the most intense, with the feeling being "freedom or death". A serious disappointment is coming the last half of December 2019 -- for the world, and perhaps Hong Kong. As one can't run or walk out of Hong Kong to be safe from the CCP, the only ways out are by air or sea. If I was there and "karmically trapped" I would try to get a group in a decent boat.... I call this "running for the fence" (when captured by fascist monsters) -- one may get shot down but at least one tried. To leave oneself to the ways of monsters once is worse than dead. One has even a slim chance no one is watching.
  2. Hello from Luxin

    November 8, 2018 It's very sad to witness the death of Love, O dearest of beings, The tragic death of Love. Why do I return to tell thee this? Because I love, And forgive you, For you know not what you do. ---------------------------------- 'If God lived on earth, they would break his windows'. (Yenta, Fiddler on The Roof) ---------------------------------- Without Love, all is lost. ---------------------------------- FX, thank you, I did enjoy my time here. It just wasn't meant to be. All the best to you.
  3. Hello from Luxin

    November 8, 2018 TOP FAREWELL NOTE.... Dear DBs, After careful reflection I have decided to bow out of this forum. I now realize I shouldn't be here because ... and I don't ... here. To be honest, I haven't .... The only people here I will have nice memories of are Marblehead, who surprised me by saying this is a forum where humor is allowed -- but I never really saw it. It was a nice fantasy that it could be possible for a while anyway. Another obviously fine person is Zen Pig -- take care, pawdner. This is m' last rodayoh here ah reckon. Thank you for giving my stuff a chance anyway. Lovin' you all deep down and movin' on....Wherever I go there is more to learn, and 'It's all good' as the ancient rabbis said. Luxin the head wrangler. My sharer Mr. Lao wrote: Those that know me are few; Those that abuse me are honored. Therefore the sage wears rough clothing and holds the jewel in his heart. (TTC 70) Other men are sharp and clever, But I alone am dull and stupid. (Ch. 20) When wisdom and intelligence are born, The great pretense begins. (Ch. 18) Accept disgrace willingly. Accept misfortune as the human condition. What do you mean by 'accept disgrace willingly?' Accept being unimportant. Do not be concerned with loss or gain. This is called 'accepting disgrace willingly'. Surrender yourself humbly; Then you can be trusted to care for all things. Love the world as your own self; Then you can truly care for all things. (Ch. 13) ============================================== November 8, 2018 Re: New and second intro for Luxin which supersedes my original intro dated October 24, 2018. Hello fellow DBs, My intro below talks of myself in the third person ... it's long as usual by I'm a person who needs to understand and provide as much clarity as possible in order to: 1) discover whether or not I should continue to be here at DB; 2) let people know more or less EXACTLY what I'm about so they have some concept of me (if they care), true or false. 3) help others to understand me, because I am a sharer, not a student, though I still learn things from anyone and everyone so I can grow to become a better sharer. My writing includes original metaphysics and is based on the esoteric and occult. Some of the occult I have actually discovered myself through my own experiences. I also write on ethics, for which there is no forum here. THE WRITER: ~ is not a student of any teacher or group, and is not someone who needs or is looking for any particular teacher. I am a teacher ... However, to be precise, I am NOT a 'teacher' but a sharer. For those who can understand it, I wish to clarify this: I reject the notion of a 'teacher', as no one can actually 'teach' another person in the sense of 'uplifting them with knowledge directly'. What people learn is what they teach themselves through understanding the subject. The correct substitutive term for 'teacher' is sharer, as all a nominal 'teacher' can do is share knowledge with others. The actual learning or not learning is the business of the student. No 'teacher' or sharer can make anyone learn any subject if they don't have the capacity to learn that subject. In addition, I do have many 'teachers', but not the living kind that a number of DB seem to be open to. My best 'teacher' was my second wife, who never 'taught' me anything 'directly', but was my 'teacher' nevertheless, because I learned more from her than anyone else in my life, though she was not philosophical or intellectual at all. My other 'teachers' are all deceased: Christ, Lao Tzu, etc. Through their Logia I have learned an enormous amount. Furthermore, though I am a sharer through the written word, I cannot have any 'live' students as I cannot do that being a recluse and very careful about my environment. Also, I'm not a false prophet that is invariably compelled -- along with the truth that they do teach -- to use their position of respect and 'authority' as a cover for their abuses of their students. I have witnessed -- from a distance -- the abuses of false 'teachers', both financial and sexual, and that were beyond belief. I don't speak of their names or what they did because the memory of the spiritually dead should be 'buried and forgotten' -- though all one can really do is not speak of them, as their depraved deeds cannot be forgotten. ~ is a secular adherent of the Wisdom of Christ, Lao Tzu, Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, Spinoza, The Dhammapada, and the Chandogya Upanishad, and an inclusive eclectic pantheistic metempsychosic lapsarian Number philosopher ('Philo Sophia') that chooses mental freedom as distinct from the mental slavery of the professed philosophers. ~ mourns the death of the philosophy that thrived 2500 years ago and which included gnosis, metempsychosic revelation, physiognomy and qualitative number. ~ does not read others' writing in depth ... writes original metaphysics based on esoterica and the occult. ~ obtained Qualitative Number from false prophets at 19; a scandal emerged 40 years later evincing the bad karma of false prophecy from their incomplete teaching; as I was always more an observer than a member, the ruinous bad karma didn't affect me so much. ~ after realizing a dangerous knowledge years ago, (which along with Number forms true prophecy), noticed it 'hidden in plain sight' in the teachings of Hinduism (and other religions, but most apparent in Hinduism), and enjoys the challenge of sharing whatever Truth I deem to be discreetly shareable online, and concealing the rest. ~ was compelled by experiences with the dead to become an authority on evil and the spiritually dead, who are blameless victims of bad karma compelled to do evil. ~ since his teens has been guided by a soul that knew he had to be prevented from a fate worse than death; writes solely out of Love and Compassion, avoiding the sin of mercenariness. ~ has had 3 wives; did office work for 30 years; was a white hat hacker; was a blues guitarist-singer-bandleader; now sings operatic arias; vegetarian; no substances ever; former porn fan for 50 years (saw a black abyss waiting); exercise and breathing nut; frequently uses himself to illustrate a point, aware that the false prophets reveal little of themselves for fear of losing business. Confucius said, 'The proud man is not dignified, and the dignified man is not proud'. ~ is a comedian. Out of compassion for the humorless who need to be left in peace, I try not to use humor. I promise to do my best here, anyway. The humorous and the dead serious are a disaster together, but I have learned from the example of Pythagoras - who was definitely a comedian -- to seriously limit humor 'in the classroom' (which is anytime I'm here at DB) because of its disruptive effect upon solemn reflection upon the deadly serious topics of Life and philosophy, which are basically one subject. ~ has a concept of Truth and Love which equates with the Taiji, Truth representing Yang or the masculine 1 quality's inspiring vibrational power, and Love being feminine Yin's 2 quality, a unifying, restful but lifting force that with the Truth creates Life or beings symbolized by: the 3 quality, the third realm, or the Taiji in this concept; the child; or Wisdom (3 or Spiritual Life as a merging of 1 = positive Spirit and 2 = negative mind). MY FOOTER: This is my 'thought song'. I'm singing it out of Self-Love for my self and my Self, not for your self and Self; however, if you like it, then it is for your two selves. When you're done listening, then it may be time for your 'thought song'. Let's hear your song. Nobody should judge a song; a song is for listening to and reflecting upon. A song is for the singer unless we like it, then 'it's ours' too. Self-Love is not selfish -- it's the love of God in one's Self.
  4. November 8, 2018 My fellow DB 3bob, thank you for your feedback. I have adjusted the piece's header accordingly in the new version, 009A.
  5. November 8, 2018 [ This piece is only for secular free thinkers. ] We are sacred beings. Therefore, when others try to "shovel dirt on our graves", they are actually "shoveling dirt on their own graves" unawares. By the time they might be thought to realize what they are doing, it is too late.... Nature traps those who think that men are not gods. However, all beings are sacred. Therefore She provided plenty of "earth" with which to "bury ourselves". This is The Law of Justice operating self-service style. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Christ's admonition, 'Judge not lest ye be judged' (Matthew 7:1) I paraphrase and articulate as Judge ye not vengefully lest ye be judged by thine own Conscience or The Laws of Nature/God first, and perhaps the laws of men second. The original could be truthfully worded as 'Judge not vengefully lest thou judge thyself so', but most people would not understand what 'judging thyself' means. I have elaborated upon the asserted original with the truthful concept that the Conscience is one's judge, plus the Laws of God and laws of men. However, 'Judge not lest ye be judged' doesn't make perfect sense, as 'to judge' means to form an opinion, and the admonition implies that the questionable judgment must be at least harsh in thought if not vengeful. Perhaps something was lost in many translations, or the church altered the wording. Anyway, because the wording has never made sense to me, and one other thinker noticed this also, I know the addition of the word "vengefully" is justified, at least in the mind of a thinker unconcerned with the church's approval.
  6. Yah ... To know it's there, and nada more is fine for me, but I have told it silently to shut it...it's like my little joke to relax myself I think...and it doesn't know I'm 'talking' to it coz it's in 'another room', and doesn't have a sense of humor anyway...ego is dead serious...we'll never 'understand each other'. 'pretense of spirituality' here; false teachers pretending they're perfect; 'no ego' but enormous ego that will likely never diminish as Nature's retribution for their sins of self-deception, other-deception, self-worship instead of Self-worship. 'To find the devil, look behind a cross' or any symbol or mask in nominal 'spiritual authority'. They're compelled to try and help others; this becomes their cover for 'helping themselves' to ANY opportunity to abuse their trusting worshippers. They can't help it and should be forgiven. I witnessed a classic case of false prophets from a distance over many years. I wouldn't have missed it for anything. It's all in my mind; I won't talk about it here because 'the dead should be buried and forgotten', or at least not spoken of. Talk about 'Speak no evil'!! I'll have to search for your thought songs then. Just heard you warming up I guess.
  7. November 5, 2018 Honestly, ZP, I haven't read that much either, and wanted to share that thought with the DB because reading a lot is not necessary to make good progress on the Path or Dao. I'm not recommending anything to you or all DB; God forbid anyone should try to follow me!. All paths are truly unique. I write and post like a singer sings then gets off the stage -- it's out of Self-Love -- it's for me, not others, really, unless someone 'gets me', then it's 'for them', but basically it's just for me. Self-Love is not selfish. Writing or whatever art is Self-Love and anyone who thinks they're writing for others might be at least a little deluded or ego-bound, or a famous author. But for them it's mainly a job for money, as it is with most musicians. I had to leave showbiz at 27 because it's a soulless business and I've got a soul -- we weren't a good match at all. Later, just jamming, some called me 'the best guitarist in the world'. I don't even have a guitar any more. I 'noodle riffs' in the written word now, and sing arias. It's been a trip. For reading, IMV all one might need is the Book of Matthew in the Bible, and Christ's sermon on the mount. One needs to have a loving, forgiving soul to benefit from that one book -- like one already has the outline of Matthew in one's soul. The rest of the Bible is unnecessary. The few books I've read I quickly recognized as essential on my Path -- the Tao Te Ching's poems by Lao Tzu knocked me right out deep down at age 20, when I got on the path. I don't think the folks in philosophy forums who read other people's stuff and seem to get lost in it are actually real philosophers. In fact I know they're not. Real philosophers are too busy writing and speaking to bother with reading other people's stuff. Pythagoras apparently wrote nothing -- people just quoted him, and I believe Christ, whoever he was, was probably the same. The oral tradition was in full swing from the early Greek philosophers in 600 BC up to around the end of the Middle Ages. I could never write a book to be sold; I'm not a mercenary. I've written 3 books just for myself. The last one is unfinished. If anyone was going to be exposed to "my" frequently awful Truth, I had to start writing on a big book called the Internet, divided into unique chapters called forums. Found a nice chapter here called DB. Cheers! LOL ... this was just a 'thought song'. Your time to sing now, somebody....
  8. Hi Zen Pig, I like your face, you laugh a fair bit I think. Sounds like you're tuning into your positive Spirit, which can examine every thought if we relax and 'quietly tell them we're not having any nonsense'. I have a 'paranoid monster thought' like Jabba the Hutt, that I just mentally whisper to, 'Down, boy'. He's no problem, now. Love that down to earth humor, thanks. The ego just diminishes -- it can never disappear. Hehe, it seems analogous to an overdeveloped extra arm flailing in disturbing places; the problem with the ego is it can make us talk. My 'extra arm' has shrunk somewhat. Dark side, mm. I won't mention what my alter ego is into. It has to stay trapped in its cage of me. It's unthinkable that it would actually get out. It's just an antithetical shadow of what "I" (the positive Spirit or Superconscious) am/is -- "I" is good and light, the Superego -- my alter ego, terrible and so bad, is an opposite shadow of what I really am (the True Self, spoken of in the Chandogya Upanishad as 'That thou art', 'That is what you are'). Thanks for the welcome. Nice to be here.
  9. November 8, 2018 Identifying Evil and The Dead - Ver 009A FOREWORD / WARNING. This piece is not for children or mentally or emotionally fragile adults. You should NOT read this piece: 1) if you're suffering from depression; or 2) if you believe that 'love is just a four letter word'; 3) If you feel threatened by the concept of spiritual death and eternal damnation; 4) if you are not an electic, in the sense of not being an electic gatherer of Logia (wise words) regardless of the books they are found in; 5) if you experience some emotional disturbance reading it. It's not my intention to disturb anyone, but it might happen, because the subject is heavy and risque. If you feel some antagonism or resentment regarding what I say here, for your peace of mind I recommend that you stop reading it as soon as possible and never read anything of mine. In addition, my adherence to the Logia in the holy books I reference or imply does not imply that I accept, have any interest in, or have extensively studied the books' associated religions' doctrine. Thank you. I love you all. Luxin. To make this piece acceptable for the public, the writer has removed one paragraph -- which would be indiscreet as it's too depressing -- regarding 'the sins of the fathers', an Old Testament concept; one paragraph remains regarding this concept and sexual abuse; and there are many other things that due to compassion I could not say. 'Spiritual death' means the death of the Spirit while a person is still physically alive and breathing. There are many references to 'the dead' (i.e. 'spiritually dead') in this piece; those unnamed people spoken of here have no hope of self-redemption, as they have taken 'The Fall' and are subject to eternal damnation. I call the dead 'harmed ones', a term that reminds one that they are victims of bad karma -- the greatest victims there are, actually. Note that the judgment of eternal damnation and spiritual death is issued by Nature as a function of a self-damned one's own Conscience -- i.e. from within a sinner's own nature! The only judge that can properly and unbiasedly judge and sentence a sinner is their own Conscience. I call this awesome judgment of Nature 'Self-administered Divine retribution'. --------------------------------------------- THE WRITER: ~ is a secular adherent of the Wisdom of Christ, Lao Tzu, Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, Spinoza, The Dhammapada, and the Chandogya Upanishad, and an inclusive eclectic pantheistic metempsychosic lapsarian Number philosopher ('Philo Sophia') that chooses mental freedom as distinct from the mental slavery of the professed philosophers; ~ was compelled by experiences with the dead to become an authority on evil and the spiritually dead, who are blameless victims of bad karma compelled to do evil; ~ discovered a secret knowledge the public will never be ready for which is 'hidden in plain sight' in the teachings of Hinduism. ~ did office work for 30 years; was a white hat hacker; a blues guitarist-singer-bandleader; is now with his third and true wife; and is a happy recluse. --------------------------------------------- DISCRIMINATION OF GOOD AND EVIL. A blog author -- who I call 'Mr. B' -- supports the 'nonconformist view' that people are basically good and should be trusted more. The blog entry was based on a statement made by a teacher to his child: 'Strangers are bad'. All people are basically good, but not in the way Mr. B thinks, who underestimates the awful reality of prevalent evil. In the many 'bad' it is mostly their evil that is in control of them, not their inner goodness, which is basically powerless, like a tiny voice they never or rarely hear. Mr. B seems to delight in encouraging his kids to 'get all warm and fuzzy' with folks on the net, a questionable thing. Mr. B seems to support 'good people's rights' to influence or be entertained by his kids. In my view Mr. B is either naive (or something), and his motivation is suspicious. In the properly paranoid atmosphere these days, no one really has any 'rights to others' of any age. Rights must be earned by those who are thoroughly tested over time -- including those closest. Mr. B is using his kids to make a point; but his point doesn't make sense. I'm using Mr. B to make a point, but my point makes sense. We are given skepticism, analysis, mistrust and suspicion for a good reason -- to be able to mentally examine the dishonorable, who are often skilled in power games and mind control. A loving father will not put their kids -- sacred innocent beings -- on the 'virtual firing line' of the net. The point of this is not to slander Mr. B -- who may just be obtuse -- but to encourage you to use your minds and Superconscious to bring clarity out of the prevalent confusion. When Christ said 'I judge no man' he meant he didn't judge anyone harshly. We do naturally make some kind of judgment regarding people and things. The important thing is not to speak about another with any intent to harm or condemn, because the negative karmic backlash for such is commensurate with any sinful or harmful intent. If one spits into the wind, one can get a faceful of spit is an apt metaphor regarding the danger of speaking of, about or against evil antagonistically or vengefully. I am satisfied that I have spoken of Mr. B directly but dispassionately. Many are unconscious of what they say and do. To be harsh with Mr. B would be as silly as rebuking a 6-month-old baby for unconsciously spitting peas in one's face. As one is or potentially should be a spiritual human being, if one doesn't have a spiritual concept perhaps as basic as the very fine Golden Rule, one's unconsciousness of spiritual basics and what one really is effectively equates with one's failure to be a human being. A real human being is a being of high status whose status is not merely inherent or 'a given', but must be earned and proven. Those who appear to be human beings are not necessarily such, and with this I introduce the matter of 'the dead' or 'harmed ones', of whom much discussion follows. Because of the ones who are 'bad', strangers should not be trusted until they are no longer strangers, and preferably more than one person has had a chance to 'drink them in'. Those best called upon to assess strangers are those who have a natural capacity to intuit evil via their solar plexus, known as 'getting a hunch'. Some children have more of that capacity than adults, as illustrated by the Mother Goose rhyme: I do not like you Mr. Fell; Why I don't I cannot tell; I do not like you Mr. Fell. (The word 'fell' means sinister or cruel.) All people are good 'deep down', meaning in their spiritual essence comprised of Spirit (Superego or True Self) and Conscience. We are all pure, positive, perfect and sinless there in our Superconscious Spirit, above the Consciousness of mind, a negative channel through which the Spirit expresses anywhere from well to hardly at all. The latter is where the 'bad' folks come in and the 'good' are tested. The mind (ego or 'evil self'), being negative by nature, is subject to all manner of delusion, misconception, and egoistic rubbish, and when our naturally good and moral inner being doesn't manifest we have perversity of all kinds -- cruelty, sex abuse, etc. Our good True Self is our figurative 'angel on the right shoulder', and the figurative 'devil on our left shoulder' is our mind, ego or false self. Our 'devil' effectively supports the evil sayings 'Just do it' or the hippies' 'If it feels good, do it'. Murder feels good to those who delight in it, but.... It is only in the mind that evil is going on and from which sins are now being committed worldwide at an increasing rate with the passage of time and the degeneration of mind due to the absence of the potential protection of our Superego and spiritual concept. Most of us don't realize what we are -- spiritual beings -- and the bad karma of this produces an uncountable number of the spiritually dead who, like the 'first fallen angels', Adam and Eve, are condemned by Nature to a miserable, loveless life; this bad karma has always been the price for that storied teenage couple's sin, which was loveless lust, and who figurate billions of people. If you are a 'good', prudent, spiritually alive person, what you are is your greatest treasure and protection. Love, Understanding and Forgiveness are the essentials of real survival for 'the good' or 'the living'. OUR THREE MEANS OF EVIL DETECTION. Three parts of our nature work together to warn us of good or evil thoughts within or without, and to issue 'the penalty', which is discussed below: 1) THE FIFTH CHAKRA. The fifth chakra (the cervical or throat chakra called visshuda), connected with the 'fiveish' powers of perception, analysis, and intuition of the abstract or unseen realms. People with the 'five' quality can spot evil or pretense faster than anyone else. 2) THE SOLAR PLEXUS. The solar plexus, our fourth or abdominal brain, seat of emotion, and energy source located just behind the stomach. The solar plexus or 'seat of emotion' is the source of 'fiveish' people's psychic hunches; it can detect evil within us or in others; it feels all of our emotions, and can sense others' emotions. 3) THE CONSCIENCE. Our Conscience monitors all our chakras or centres of consciousness for good or evil thoughts or emotions, and issues either good or bad feelings through our solar plexus depending on what it finds in us, and in accordance with the cause-and-effect Law of Karma -- we do or think good, we feel good; we do or think evil, we feel bad. These 'mental signals' are issued by the Conscience, but their emotions are expressed and felt as they are expressed through either the solar plexus or the cerebrum. The Conscience signals expressed through the solar plexus are quite emotionally dramatic; the signals expressed through the cerebrum are more subtle and dispassionate. A) THE CONSCIENCE-SOLAR PLEXUS WARNING. Our Conscience can take complete control of the body through the solar plexus and give us and others quite dramatic warnings regarding our own evil or the evil it witnesses around us, through tears, weeping or vomiting; in addition to those displays of its sadness, it also compels dramatic displays of joy. Our Conscience only compels us to emote, not speak. If we speak, it's only after the Conscience's dramatic control of our body and emotions is over. This awesome phenomenon manifesting in another -- if they have a fully operational Conscience -- takes complete control of them through their solar plexus in order to warn us of one of the following: 1) Any foolish or evil intentions or thoughts we have toward or about them (that we may just be unconscious of). My wife's Superconscious issued this type of 'Conscience-solar plexus warning' to me a couple of times, in the form of a rare 'gas phenomenon' or attack of burping. Neither of us knew why it was happening as it originated above our minds' Consciousness, but later I realized it was because of dumb things I said. 2) Their condonation of an evil conspiracy against us. In this 'Conscience-solar plexus warning', the confessor is not the main conspirator, but will typically cry or weep uncontrollably as their Conscience detects the 'sadness' of their involvement in a conspiracy involving deception, secrecy, exploitation and the cruelty of that regarding an abused lover that is blind to the main conspirator. This type includes the 'weeping warning', which I witnessed once; it's one of the most dramatic things I've ever seen. THE CONSCIENCE-CEREBRUM WARNING. A related but different type of warning is the 'Conscience-cerebrum warning', which is more subtle and easier to miss, as the solar plexus's dramatic control of the whole body and its rawer emotions is not involved. In this warning, the cerebrum, a brain in the forepart of the head which governs movements of the eyelids, face, mouth, tongue, ear, neck, hand foot, etc. is involved in translating signals from the Conscience. This 'Conscience-cerebrum warning', in my experience, took the form of a worried facial expression or sad look of someone with questionable intentions towards me who was aware of them and the sin involved. This harmed one had acting ability, and may have had some control of her solar plexus without realizing it. C) THE CONSCIENCE and SPIRITUAL DEATH. Our Conscience also has the merciless and inhuman duty (*1) of issuing the penalty of spiritual death and eternal damnation to a serious sinner, something like a spiritual short circuit that ruins the sinner for life. This 'failure event' is Nature's way of rejecting and punishing evildoers; i.e. those who are failing to fulfill their potential as a spiritual being, which we all should be, but are not because of our evil and ignorance. (*1) We are human, but our Conscience is not, as it is an impersonal and inhuman part of us that operates according to Nature and the specific laws of our nature that are beyond our control. Automatic rewards and punishments are issued by the Conscience that are entirely separate from our human nature and completely free of any human mercy or forgiveness. Things are much worse than that seeming but justified severity of impersonal Nature, but I must protect you from the full awful truth. The level of our bad karma as a race is mind boggling. THE SOLAR PLEXUS and BREATHING EXERCISES. To increase one's capacity to sense evil in others (or in one's own mind), one may do breathing exercises like yoga's pranayama to build up the solar plexus body battery with pranic energy; as a minimum, deep locked breathing at regular intervals can help increase one's 'sensitivity to evil influence'. Breathing exercises should only be done when one is positive and happy, and for the breathing to be effective at all, one must not be using any kind of substances, which dull the sensitivity of all four of our brains. Besides 'evil detection', breathing helps the solar plexus do its work of energizing and regulating our organs, heart rate, digestive functions, etc. The solar plexus or abdominal brain never rests even when we're asleep. Before birth the solar plexus is our primary brain; some babies born without a skull brain are otherwise perfect, and sometimes live for some time afterward. With skull brain damage we can survive, but solar plexus damage is fatal. A heavy enough punch or a knife thrust to the solar plexus as in hara-kiri can kill instantly. MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE DEAD and ADVICE FOR THE LIVING. As the dead are key to the subject of evil, here I relate my experience, observations and advice regarding them, whom I term 'harmed ones' or 'the harmed', as they are tragic victims of bad karma. Identifying the dead can be difficult. Having psychic qualities helps, especially the 5 quality, which is connected with both the fifth chakra and the solar plexus. The 2, 6, 7 and 9 qualities also confer psychic sensitivity. An analytical, logical, dispassionate and intuitive mind not easily influenced through the emotions and desires is required for a good 'evil detective', to allow a little facetiousness. Last but not least is the Conscience -- both of 'the detective' and 'the suspects'. If you ever ID one of the harmed, keep your thoughts to yourself; say nothing to them about what you know; they need your kind forgiveness.... The harmed are not all dangerous perverts, but all 'hands on perverts' are the dead. Some have damned themselves with loveless lust, violence, deception, etc. If you find yourself married to a harmed one, God help you; though they may know how to appear to be kind and loving, they are soulless and never to be trusted. If you're a 'good' person, the marriage is doomed; the living and the dead cannot last together. Beware the dead; they are the 'wolves in sheep's clothing' who delight in abusing others. Harmed ones seek worldly power to compensate for their lovelessness. They are often intelligent, charming and attractive, but they have a 'black hole where their heart should be'. I have loved 3 of the 'nicer' harmed ones and married 2 of them, completely blind to them and ignoring the signs of lovelessness that they did show. After my second wife, with a cute daughter involved, my suffering and my soul compelled me to search out why the ostensibly wonderful ladies I loved were turning out to be tragic figurative 'demons from hell'. Four years later, after finding my truly 'good' wife now, I had an epiphany and became an 'instant' authority on the dead. Now I write solely for the sake of Love and compassion for other 'good' people. I was shocked by the sad confessions that one of my beloved harmed ones made to me. The confessions of the dead are proof of their status. One must respect these sacred confessions of the harmed and keep them confidential; they only give them to one that they know loves them, and they are proof of the good and pure nature of the Conscience in them and all of us. I love all of my beloved harmed ladies still, because love is forever, but I can't have any contact with them. The harmed don't know that love is eternal, and are the ones who say 'I don't love you any more'; actually, they never loved you and never could have; they sense this and their Conscience causes them to cry; and it breaks one's heart to witness their hopeless tears. Once one separates from a harmed one, one must generally never see or speak to them again -- not out of bitterness, but because doing so is unwise to say the least. The dead, trouble personified, are major games players. If a child is involved and the dead take custody, that might seem to be a karmic nightmare, but it isn't and it should not be resisted. As Christ said, 'Resist not evil'. This outcome is not as bad as you might think, even if you know you're a better example to the child; it's actually for the best that the child be with the harmed one. If the harmed one is a physical or sexual child abuser, you might be compelled to get the child away from them somehow...but you shouldn't take the child yourself. I'm not telling you why you should just peacefully let go, but you should. All I can say is it's connected with 'the sins of the fathers', but I'm not talking about your sin, if you're the father or the mother; and in taking the child you'll be 'interfering with Nature' and will thus run into karmic problems, all the while probably thinking you're doing the right thing. Your first priority is your own happiness, and you musn't have contact with the custodial parent anyway. Just go, and be thankful if you got away with your sanity intact. Best to avoid contact with the child because they are with a harmed one. Trust me and don't ask how I know this, but the child will not be a 'good' person, and its dead parent will almost invariably brainwash the child against you anyway. If after all that, you also say 'I don't love you any more' to the custodial parent, then the moral status of both of you is the same, and you have been deceiving yourself you're a 'good' person, and your separation is due to ego or the 'evil self'. The dead must be left to their misery and failure, and are not worthy of the love of the living; however, they do 'catch' the living who are blind to them. The dead can only 'steal' the love of others; they cannot earn love with the virtues of real Love and Honesty simply because they lack those virtues. Harmed ones frequently dream about the love which Nature denies them and which is the price they pay for their sin. The world's bad karma, however, is responsible for their weakness, not they, who are the karmic victims. For our collective sin over the ages, Nature deems us all responsible and accountable for the fate of the dead who can never know Life, Love and happiness, and never had a chance to. To me, this sad karmic truth is the ultimate horror. If jealousy is a weakness, the dead can be quite dangerous to the living who know real love; they can go to great lengths to try and destroy others' happiness with slander etc. The dead, or permanent residents of hell on earth, are portrayed in Christ's fictional crucifixion as the two solders who gambled over his clothes. Christ admonished the others to 'Forgive them, for they know not what they do'. BIBLICAL REFERENCES TO THE DEAD. 1) THE TROUBLED. Some Biblical references to 'the dead' are regarding troubled 'good' people ('the dead' who I do not speak of in this piece) who have not damned themselves with sin, and can still redeem ('raise' or 'resurrect') themselves or be 'born again' (spiritual birth, however...) -- meaning they can become Spiritually Conscious or godly through the sacred Word or Logos, terms which are synonymous with Christ, the figurative 'Son of God', or any other 'wise' one who shares the Word or Logos. John 5.25 speaks of these troubled ones: 'the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live'. The troubled are also referred to in Matthew 11.5: 'the dead are raised up'. In John 5.29 they are 'they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life'; and in Acts 24.15 they are 'the just'. In Matthew 14.2, Herod introduces the 'born again' John the Baptist with: 'This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him'. 2) THE HARMED or DAMNED. Some Biblical references to 'the dead' refer to the eternally damned spiritually dead I speak of in this piece who have no hope of redemption. John 5.29 refers to these in 'they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation'. In Acts 24.15 they are 'the unjust'. Proverbs 9.18 also refers to the damned. IN CONCLUSION. The unreality of evil has no place in the Divine plan, but in our hell on earth it is very real, and every one of us is subject to its bad karma to some degree, with our own evil or that of others. 'Good' people 'take the rap' or come under suspicion; it's all part of the karmic price for prevalent evil. The 'good' are tested, which can be good for them.... Fear no one, that won't help, but trust no one too soon. Many are too weak to trust themselves. One of the most tragic things I've ever come across (in a YouTube documentary) is a mother -- a victim of sexual abuse as a child -- who was afraid she might also abuse her kids, and who didn't feel comfortable being alone with them. This phenomenon is part of a curse called 'the sins of the fathers' in the Old Testament; though I know the awful process involved I cannot detail it, and neither could the Bible's writers. If you think things are bad, you have no idea just how bad. It's shocking and beyond belief, but it's real. If you are a responsible and sufficiently dispassionate person, parent or not, who typically cannot discuss the subject of perversity with anyone due to the insane level of fear surrounding it -- you should at least bravely watch one of the 'no comment' sexual abuse documentaries on YouTube, and be thankful if you've never been one of the victims.... To be blind to evil is also evil. Such blindness brings a serious karmic punishment. Lastly, remember the dead are compelled to do what they do; none of them ever wanted to be evil; and they were all innocent little babies. Whoever has been abused by the harmed ones should forgive them for their own peace of mind. The harmed suffer terribly, and it's not for us to punish them; that should be left to God: 'Vengeance is mine saith the Lord'. The justice and penal authorities don't realize that the truly dangerous dead they deal with can never be 'rehabilitated'; they are permanently ruined with no hope of any change, which is literally impossible for them. That doesn't mean they don't deserve kindness and respect, they do.... But 'the dilemma of handling the dangerous dead' is the lot of folks who don't really know what they're up against.... The sadness and traumatization of prison officials who have executed innocent prisoners and are paying the price for breaking the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill' is something I do talk about. If you made it this far I congratulate you. Please feel free to comment on anything in this piece. Thank you. Truth and Love, Luxin. 'A single atom of the love of God in a heart is worth more than a hundred thousand paradises'. (Bayazid al-Bistami). ------------------------------------------------------ EPILOGUE. The dead are good deep down, as we all are; they just have serious trouble accessing that good; you need to mentally and silently forgive them for that. The dead find their match in other dead, with confrontation, vindictiveness and war. If you're 'good', stay away from the dead; if you can't stay away, pretend to be one of them and cover any fear, show them love for the beauty they have, then get away as soon as you can without attracting their attention. Looking like a 'tough guy' helps; I used that persona for 40 years; they can be fooled. A 'good' person's greatest weapon is Love and seeing the good in others -- loving others and seeing the good in them both inspires them and protects you from the evil in them (and yourself). Know the evil is there, just behave like it doesn't exist. Evil does not theoretically exist because it's just an absence of good. It's not evil so much that harms one, but reacting to it with fear and worry. Disregard the evil and see the good, but never kid yourself the evil is not there. My favorite book hero is Jack Reacher, one of the dead called an 'avenging angel' (don't tell Lee Child). Some of them are amazing forces of nature, and one can't help loving them; but things don't go well for them. An avenging angel in high white boots once came out of nowhere to rescue me from a doper who had me in a headlock. 'There's nothing to fear but fear itself'. ADDENDUM -- BOOKS OF THE DEAD: EGYPTIAN and TIBETAN. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_the_Dead (Egyptian) I don't believe that the books of the dead that were buried with Egyptians were for corpses to read as their guides to the afterlife, but anything is possible in the minds of the nonsecular. The Tibetan Book of the Dead (Bardo Thodol, meaning "Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State") has this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bardo_Thodol which suggests that the 'death' involved was the 'ego death' while still breathing -- perhaps a better term is ego attenuation -- that is concurrent with Self-realization. Valdez: "Used loosely, the term "bardo" refers to the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth." The 'two lives on earth' [ 'on earth' suggests while one is breathing ] would be the unspiritualized (benighted) first part of a life and the spiritualized (enlightened) latter part of a life, with the point at which Self-realization starts being the intermediate point at which the two lives are distinct from each other. "Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State" esoterically refers to the True Self recognizing the Logia (Words of Truth) at the beginning of Self-realization or 'ego death' at the 'intermediate state'. According to Leary, Metzer and Alpert, the Tibetan Book of the Dead is "... a key to the innermost recesses of the human mind, and a guide for initiates, and for those who are seeking the spiritual path of liberation" and is "one of the oldest and most universal practices for the initiate to go through the experience of death before he can be spiritually reborn. Symbolically he must die to his past, and to his old ego, before he can take his place in the new spiritual life into which he has been initiated". Summary re books of the dead. I see no hints of anything suggesting the 'spiritually dead while alive' were esoterically referred to in either of the books. The subject of 'the living and the dead' as discussed here had to have been known; it's likely that any books on the subject were either destroyed or occultists were warned not to distribute anything on the subject to the public. My own work is 'going to the grave' with me. It's for the best that most will never recognize The Occult.

  11. Hello from Luxin

    November 4, 2018 DAO BUMS PLEASE NOTE: The following is just a draft for review by our Leaders ... NO POLL needed for now. Thanks, Luxin. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- DRAFT ONLY................ NO POLL REQUIRED.... Tentative Thread Title: The Living and The Dead L01 Intro Hello, Luxin here, with a poll for all my fellow Dao Bums requiring responses of ANY kind -- negative, positive, whatever -- from anyone reading this please, with particular reference to our Leaderboard Stewards, Fa Xin, Marblehead and any other "Major Bums", if you'll excuse that likely unconventionality. I have just been thinking of the possibility -- I'm not sure yet if it would actually be appropriate -- of posting an introduction to the occult subject of 'the living and the dead', which is a term for our human race and its duality which is based on morality or immorality, i.e. 'the good' is 'the living', and 'the bad' are 'the dead'. If my proposal for an introduction is accepted, the term 'the dead' will sometimes be replaced with the euphemism 'harmed ones' or 'the harmed' which reflects their true condition as being victims of bad karma through no fault of their own. Definition: 'The dead', also known as 'harmed ones' or 'the harmed', are those who have damned themselves with sin. Their full term is 'the spiritually dead'. The concept of 'eternal damnation' or 'spiritual death' applies. The harmed ones are 'permanent residents of hell on earth' -- meaning subject to the karmic judgment of an unhappy, loveless life because of their sin typically involving lovelessness -- e.g. 'loveless lust'. And, get this -- the judgment of damnation comes from the sinner's own Conscience! Something like a 'spiritual short circuit' happens, probably in the pineal gland. You see it's a heavy topic, not for the squeamish at all. And harmed ones need to be protected from the topic as well, because they're just as sensitive as 'good' people and they suffer a lot, and it's not their fault, but due to the world's bad karma mostly. The harmed enjoy dreaming everything's OK with them, and no one should inform them otherwise. I wouldn't want any one of them to shed a single tear because of me and my words, or anything you might say to any one of them if you are open to this subject. Secret knowledge is only for people who can handle it, and my challenge in public forums -- an impossible challenge perhaps, but I love 'impossible' -- is to get something online, share knowledge with 'the good' who might be able to protect or help themselves with it -- without getting too many people upset....Sigh.... My soul seems to be compelling me to share the topic. Only time will tell if it's something I can further proceed to share without some kind of bad karma for me. I'm either going to be justified in sharing it, or the dumbest person for trying to share occult knowledge. I know if I travelled in a time machine back to anywhere between year 0 and 1700, and spoke of it then, I'd be burned at the stake or something else lovely quick as a wink. One strange thing is that I'm initiating this proposal in a cycle that basically means it's going to fail or be vetoed, perhaps even by myself. I was encouraged by that other general public forum post acceptance, though. I could share the link for it, but I'd rather conduct this poll first. Of course, I generally forget that many people are protected from subjects they don't relate to or find disturbing somehow by simply denying there's any truth to them. I tend to worry sometimes; but overconfidence is also hazardous. As far as I know, I am probably the only one in the world who is talking about this heavy occult subject. It's 'just about people', but it's heavy. It's fairly simple to understand. It seems clear that this subject has been concealed from the public for perhaps thousands of years, and now here I am contemplating its revelation here at TDB. I posted a longish piece called 'Identifying Evil and The Dead' at a general public forum, and no one was upset with it. I noticed someone talking about 'the dead' in their blog. It seems people are open-minded enough to accept it as 'just another subject' (?). However, regarding my idea of an intro here at TDB I must be cautious and wait for your feedback before I post anything. I'm impressed with the TDB forum, my first exposure to a forum for followers of the Dao or spiritual path, the physical disciplines of course being important too. Those interested in a Path at philosophy forums are rare; there's a lot of babbling and ego clashes there. Because I've hardly begun here, I don't really want to risk being banned, but anything is possible even though I've had a wonderful welcome so far. However, sharing Truth is my number one priority without regard for how people respond to my stuff. I'm not happy unless I can share the things I have learned the hard way, with the hope that perhaps even one 'good' person could benefit from my words. The bottom line in sharing philosophical writing and Truths gained is that the process of sharing must really be for one's Self, and an expression of Self-Love. Real philosophical expression is, much like singing or other arts, individual performance then an exit from the stage, where another writer is waiting in the wings. It's like in a musical evening everyone gets a chance to perform. One does one's bit and hands off to the next performer. The debates and ego-defense seen in philosophy forums only proves that those who do that are not philosophers. 'Truthful words are not beautiful. Beautiful words are not truthful. Good men do not argue. Those that argue are not good. Those who know are not learned. The learned do not know'. (Lao Tzu, Daodejing Ch. 81) Here 'my friend' Mr. Lao could be summarizing the average philosophy forum experience from my own viewpoint. I see I'm digressing but no harm. Opening up with one's feelings on things may help responders give me their best, so I might get an idea whether its wise to reveal 'the harmed ones' which seems to have been kept secret for ages because the harmed are the most dangerous segment of the population, though not all of them. They are users, predators and morally clueless people. 'Good' people or 'the living' can't stand the thought of abusing or hurting others. I'm one of the living, and its only the living I should really share 'the topic' with. And how can one restrict the thread to the living? Harmed ones would be warned -- in an indirect way; one never says anything like 'the bad' should not read this -- at the top of the introduction to '....the dead' in the following way, so you'll get an idea.... I have to discourage children too, first.... "This piece is not appropriate for children or mentally or emotionally vulnerable adults. If you're suffering from depression, do not read this. If you're someone who thinks that 'love is just a four letter word' and have no belief in a God of any kind, you should not read this. If you're a member of a religion, it's best that you not read this. If you have mentally said 'yes' to any of the aforegoing, once you close this thread, I'm asking you to please not read anything written by me, Luxin. If you disregard my words here and read this piece, and you begin to feel antagonism or any other emotional disturbance, please do not read any more of my writing because I do not want you to get upset at anything I say in this thread, and I wish you a good day. Thank you". The above warning needs work and shortening if possible. It's so verbose, some might be more curious to read it, but I left it as is. (DISREGARD THIS SENTENCE, DRAFT ONLY:) Please tell me what you think and don't hold any thought back. Much appreciated....Give me the bad news early please, if you have any for me. If you wish, dear Leaders, I could provide the link for my piece at the other forum so you could get more of an idea reading it there. It occurred to me just now after I wrote all of the above (left as is) that providing the link by private message might be the best thing, because it may be possible that some Dao Bums are in need of material and feedback of a greater therapeutic nature than 'the dead'! It won't bother me at all if you need to delete this post from my intro. Thank you. Truth and Love, Junior Bum Luxin **********END OF DRAFT ONLY***************
  12. Hello from Luxin

    November 3, 2018 Hi Fa Xin, Marblehead and other fellow beings here at TTB/TDB, Thank you for the great welcome! Regarding humor I've had to recognize it could be disruptive, like telling a joke in class and others laughing when all should ideally be allowed to reflect on the rather serious subject of Life. Pythagoras allegedly disdained laughing (presumably while he was sharing), but it seems he was quite a standup comedian, as he was always standing up in his classes. Marblehead, since you've encouraged me, I'll just get one joke attributed to Pythagoras out of the way .... Abaris the Hyperborean thought Pythagoras was a God. Pythagoras told Abaris he came down to human form lest men, disturbed by the novelty of his transcendency, should avoid the discipline he advised. (from Iamblichus? via William Harris, Prof. Em. Middlebury College). OK, I'll behave now. Whoops, still laughing. Ahem.... About the abyss, there was an enormous bass voice in it I think. I don't know if he was talking to me or grumbling about misplacing his shoes. Sorry. I should really leave the class. Perhaps we can all reflect upon the depth and do our disciplines when we're all done with this post? That's recommended, to keep earthbound and not fly away with humor. I can't guarantee some of my fellows will always be happy with what I say, because Truth is heavy, and I'm 'full of it'. Still a ways to go of course; it should only stop with the last breath (but continue in the next). Forgive me, for it was either I married the Truth at 20 or I was going to die too early ... analogous to a shotgun wedding; my soul was holding the 'shotgun'. Thank you for accepting me so graciously. I'm also impressed with the graphics of TTB. Beautiful. Till then, Luxin
