  1. Tibetan Empty Force Master Tzun Tzun Hsue

    Why did you have to ask for permission when it says on his website that you can just go and learn that from him and he gives you the price? Also is there an objective type of demo that he can do? When you are just feeling vibrations in your dantien - that's not objective - because your mind can create that in you just as well. Basically you are just openning your mind and will and allowing it to be directed by somebody else. That's basic hipnosis 101 For example can you show him a mosquito and tell him to kill it without touching it?

  6. The Russian Pyro

    Have you ever seen your sifu crumple an object like you "think" it would happen ? And also for those who still are interested in Roman's "pyro" effects - the guy and his team turned out to be a fraud - and the whole video was a setup. They were making good money with little tricks like that and got busted.
  7. One day Ma-Tsu, while still a pupil under Master Huai-jang, was asked why he sat so much in meditation. Ma-Tsu replied that it was for the purpose of becoming a Buddha. The Master then began rubbing a brick very hard. It was now Ma-Tsu's turn to ask a question. 'Why,' he inquired, 'do you rub that brick?' 'To make a mirror,' replied Huai-jang. 'But surely sir,' protested Ma-tsu, 'no amount of polishing will make a brick into a mirror.' 'And so also,' returned the Master, 'no amount of sitting cross-legged will make you into a Buddha. ********************************************************* A student went to his meditation teacher and said, "My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I'm constantly falling asleep. It's just horrible!" "It will pass," the teacher said matter-of-factly. A week later, the student came back to his teacher. "My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It's just wonderful!' "It will pass," the teacher replied matter-of-factly ********************************************************* Q: Why do we take refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha? A: Because sex, chocolate and alcohol turned out to be impermanent.
  8. psychiatrists and therapists piss me off so much

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. I just wanted to add that there are also therapists now who tend to approach clients w/ the knowledge of Western psychology in addition to the wisdom of the there can be a blend and balance which respects and utilizes both modern psychology and ancient spirituality. These therapists might be called "Transpersonal Therapists/Counselors" or "Holistic Therapists/Counselors" . They would be more likely to respond to YOU in the moment, to what you need, versus following an old, worn out recipe they learned once in a course long ago. They can use somatic approaches, meditation, hypnotherapy, EFT, pranic healing -- what's helpful is that they are more fluid and alive to what IS - YOU - in the moment. I wish you the best.
  9. I'm starting to question myself

    I think you are right.
  10. Abstaining from masturbation

    You sound slightly confused kid, I was just wondering if this is the right forum for you.... Maybe you should practice posting in a forum like this first:
  11. Abstaining from masturbation

    Listen man, if you want a good advice - just stop doing it. For some reason in the modern society its considered ok, even natural. In fact it's a big problem on many levels. And animals do it only when smth is wrong - usuallly in captivity. You won't see a grizzly bear sitting in the forest and beating off just because he feels horny - it's only when smth is wrong in the matrix. And smth is awfully wrong in yours. I won't get into detail to why and how - but stop it if you want to be well and I hope you have the guts to do it. And don't refer to idiots like Mantak Chia for help either !
  12. Great idea with this poll - I hope it will make a difference in a forum infected by the dogmatic posts of a pathetic Taoist clown.
  13. Magus of Java Teachings Revealed

    Yes, I have to agree with the above comments about this guy. Listen buddy, get off your high horse and come down to the earth, take some time to get out of Ego-Land before you get trapped there.
