Welcome, You are one hard core noodle . Intense breathing patterns can get you that state. You're combining it with standing. I'm reminded of Morihei Ueshiba mystic and founder of Aikido describing the billowing purple clouds he'd see around himself in his visions. I think you'll find people here with first hand experience similar to yours. I'm not one of them but I admire the dedication and perseverance of those who achieve that level.

  4. I like everything you said except for the 'where necessary, armed for self-defense. I'd rather they call the police or journalists and have cameras out to record infractions. The Right wing militias do look stupid and when they use force it usually backfires. Plus you can't control the extremes in your own movement, the violent ones give the other side ammo to dismiss and tar the entire movement..

Personally I found Glenn Morris's books to be strange and inspiring. I took KAP and learned alot from it. I think if you have a live teacher and take things slow and grounded then you don't have too worry too much about kundalini blow out experiences. In the meantime preparation of doing proper breathing, longer meditations getting the body in proper shape is work enough.. imo.

  21. Word I got from Tech support is it wasn't possible. So, we got tolerance and asking people nicely but firmly to Leave your Thread. Believe me I've been there. I've also been on the other end. Making a humorous statement and being told to bug off. When that happens and I'm decent & smart, I apologize and erase my post(s) and write something elsewhere. That happened just a week or two ago, so sometimes it works.
  22. It'll never be done that fast. We just went through a 3 month period with no mods or moderation at all. People here will not get banned or disciplined at your whim. So if that's what you need, you should leave. We do read and discuss Reports though, and will deal with Spam. Course there's also the SPAM of over Reporting.
  23. An opinion or observation of madness

    We've had a few reports on it. He's been given warnings. If he keeps up with Spammy posts he'll get increased discpline.
  24. I can bring up the 'block' to tech support. Don't know if its possible and they are working on other things right now. But I'll ask. For topics you really want to keep sacred, the PPF are better. Where at least you can hide things. Let the moderators know about problems, maybe we help. Though at some point, some things will have to be lived with. And considered the trying side of cultivation.
