  1. Hi folks! Steve wanted to point out that he doesn't have a sock puppet account on TDB, he has politely asked if someone could post his reply to the discussion and I volunteered to do that.
  2. If someone is primarily a martial artist, it's more like taking all the C4 in the goldmine and putting it into the backpack, and filling the knapsack while being there.
  3. I tried in my ppd. I have to leave a dot., can't leave a total blank post, if I tried that, all deleted text was restored by the editor. Is this the same as you are describing @Earl Grey?
  4. Retrograde orgasm (Mature conversation)

    There are a bunch of old nei dan threads on this forum that should have ^ as a final post.
  5. Retrograde orgasm (Mature conversation)

    Yes, the idea of first manifesting energy to a lower level and then trying to get it back is sort of a waste of, well, energy. I'm married, the one doesn't exclude the other. Unless you want to have copious amounts of sex. Naaah. Just keep doing that Chia stuff, it might work better for you than for me.
  6. Retrograde orgasm (Mature conversation)

    No. Because you want to transmute it before it becomes sexual energy. But if you are in to Chia's stuff: Why not? Better than the hot draw. Depends on your goal. Do you want to be able to have huge amounts of sex? Then yes (Chia's version). BTDT. Or, if you refer to the methods that latched on the tantric wave, I don't know. Haven't practiced that. But again, it depends on your goals and which prize you are willing to pay to reach them. Again, BTDT, price tag was higher that what I got out of it.

    Meditation, breathing, movements, static positions. Intent, lack of intent, movements, static positions, spontaneously. Let me count the ways... 😁
  8. Retrograde orgasm (Mature conversation)

    Non-sexual methods. Since the non-ejaculatory methods are based on (forceful) behavioural inhibition, and behavioural inhibition cause blockages,... ... .
  9. Neidan plan

    It helps even if one is just practicing basic qigong. Usually one lay the foundation before doing Nei Dan proper. Depends on the position, the teaching, and the student. But yes, long time standing will open and activate a lot of things. And you can focus on just one position, or have a smorgasbord of them, again depending on teacher and student. This is a hard one. To some, "nei dan" is a generic term for any transformative method. For others, Nei Dan is considered a more specific method of practice. There has been some argument about this in the past. That depends. Again. Some claim that in order to store qi in the LDT, it has do be developed properly. Some say that one circulates qi in the Du + Ren, but if one don’t do that but let them develop naturally, they will accumulate and the difference between them will create an arc discharge, as seen on the Nei Jing Tu. Reading is good.

    @forestofemptiness is right, if your goal is Nei Dan then starting from within an organisation that claim to teach it will be time efficient. Unfortunately, @Iskotehas a point as well. A long history of Nei Dan has left us with a wide array of practices, leading to different places. I hope you find a practice that leads you to where you want to go!

    I believe that the point of the thread was how to not have a "happy ending". But a happy ending is better than happeh theory 😁
  13. Diagram of Cultivating Perfection (Xiuzhen Tu)

    Poster size? You could always buy a poster.... Or maybe not. I bought a nei jing tu full-size printed on cloth poster from China years ago. A waste of money, one needs a photograph of the original. Don't know if it is the same with the xzt.
  14. Diagram of Cultivating Perfection (Xiuzhen Tu)

    @pitisukha Mikael Ikivesi made a translation in 2009, diagram of cultivating perfection. Try Google that. 47 pages of joy, page three is the entire chart image. There is also a document, "Hsiu-chen Tu" author inknown, that have some nice images in it. Catherine Despeux "Taoism and Self Knowledge", I believe it can be bought as a pdf. Great book! Damo Mitchell's book White moon on the mountain peak also have it.
  15. Neidan plan

    More or less any qigong set.
