    Do u think speed reading is possible? You need to read without the subvocalization, as thinking with images. Some people say they can do it, like a former US president (Kennedy?). In my case I always subvocalize, I can't avoid it.

     

    I'll get back to you in a couple of hours when I've finished reading your post.

    Thank you for the clarification.  However, my technical challenges were in 2008.  It's now 2020 and I'm doing pretty well with all this.

    Welcome to this wonderful website, Wanderer.  You snagged a very old thread on that one.  Check the dates of the post, for future reference.

     

    There are time travellers in this board :)

  3. Dear everyone, particularly SongShuhang,

     

    The purpose of TheDaoBums is discussions along the way - that is about our various spiritual paths and mostly how we can help each other to progress, share ideas and generally and so on.  The Mod team will take action to safeguard that environment from time to time - when and how it choses in line with a few general rules.  If you are not happy with something you can report it.  If however the Mod team don't take the exact action you would like to see, at the time you would like to see it, that's just tough.  So while the Mod team may post occasionally explaining what action has been taken for the purpose of clarity it is not an invitation for endless debate over whatever is happening.

     

    Don't do it.  It will be locked.  And if you persist you will be banned.

     

    Have a very nice day.

    What spammers and trolls do with the forum is no different from Rape, a direct rape of the brains of every member and visitor who comes to this place.

     

    I don't want to be in a place with @mark @limahong if you cant deal with them in 24hr, I am leaving permanently.

     

     

    If you are pushing it to see how far you can go - then you've already gone too far.  You've only just got here and if you can't cope then feel free to leave.

    Hi.  I don't know where else to post so I'm going to post here because I know that a lot of the modern occult world is so focused on the Will.  I just wanted to say that there is no absolute Will of mankind, everyone finds their reason.  I think life is mostly about want and survival, with a lot of neglect to our safety.  I recall watching them build a large building in my town here and thinking how amazingly daring it is for mankind to try to do such things at such heights.  We naively believe in some kind of security but really we are at the mercy of the environment, and one another.  The environment we cannot really do anything about but the one another part we can.  I guess I am becoming very conservative in my age, where in my youth I was much more brash and daring- reckless in some ways, and inconsiderate in others.  I was never a harmful person, but I could have been more attentive to people's needs and where they were at in life.  I've since learned my lesson.  I don't do much now.  

     

    I think you may have succumbed to some anti-will propaganda.  Being wilful isn't the same as being brash and harmful.  Social conditioning denigrates the wilful as being awkward and uncontrollable - because they want you to fit in - that is conform to some kind of rationalised version of how to behave.  This is usually based on social safety to protect the nervous and those made anxious by experiences that they have not yet understood.

     

    Will in its true sense is action from pure unconditioned consciousness - truly free and without conceptually imposed limits.

    I do not understand, I am not taken seriously here. I have no intention of lying or anything. Why would I come here and post such thing, if I had to lie or if I had to hide things, I would have done somewhere else. I found no answer anywhere. I thought some esoteric teaching of Tao could help me. Not a lot of people in this world know about semen retention as well. The whole Tibetean Buddhism also hides such a thing. They call it 'Samaya' as a vow of celibacy and broken samaya brings a lot of downfall. But the thing is I am not to preach that here. I wanted to know if anyone has authentic answer for this phenomenon. Yes I have also felt all chakras in the body, like tingling sensation in my spine, and also a movement of energy up. If anyone here is serious please let me know why does my loss of semen brings suffering in the outer world. Just yesterday a famous actor died. I am not being narcissist. All the moments where I go without ejaculation, no such things would happen. And that's it, after one orgasm, I open evil in the world. 

     

    In both of the traditions you mention here Daoism (Internal Alchemy) and Tibetan Buddhism (tantra/vajrayana) there is held to be a relation between the macrocosm (the outside world) and the microcosm (your inner world) and that these two correlate, resonate and indeed follow the same patterns, such as the sun and moon cycles and so on.  However it is not the case that one causes the other.  There may be causative relations, such as for instance ritual magic aimed at a particular result and this would depend on carrying out specific actions in a purified state, inter-relating to certain forces which do have a causative functions and making offerings and so on.  But again much of this is about using correspondences and alignments to bring about change in accordance with will.  This is enormously tricky and also risky - hence the stress on purification of body and mind and also intent.  Samaya vows are there to safeguard the purity of the transmitted energy/information from teacher to student.  They can be broken but also repaired if you know how.

     

    The world is chaotic - more in the way of being so very complex that lines of cause and effect are almost impossible to detect or predict - rather than in the sense of being random.  So that our actions and the results are connected but via a field of infinite flux.  If for instance we piss in an ocean - our urine will end up somewhere and have some effect but we know not where.  Cultivation begins with simple things to get your life in order, dealing with responsibilities and duties and also being continent emotionally and sexually.  This why magical operations start with circle drawing as a statement of self-containment.  We exist in a field of intelligent energy which will in an uncanny way reflect back to us things we need to know or attend to.  How many times have people 'escaped' one situation they didn't like to walk straight into an even worse one - out of the frying pan - into the fire.  So if you are noticing that your actions (whatever they are) are followed by certain types of events or patterns of some kind - you should not think 'I have caused this' but just ask what message am I getting and what should I change.  The answer may not be always obvious.

    Yes .  Not only do I know the questions people really want to ask , I now what they really meant when they wrote things , even if they didn't realise it  at the time .

     

    So, everyone PM Drew pictures of doughnuts and ask him for 1/2 hr of lotus ,

     

    Did you also know that the toroidial  forces contained within the doughnut are similar to that  within the substructure or San musical theory ?

     

    This advice is gonna cost ya , you realise ?

    I sent Drew a donation & I immediately regret it because he's being a pain in the ass. Instead of doing what I asked of him, he's constantly sending me links & copying information from somewhere else and trying to goad me into asking a different question instead.

     

    When I first came onto DBs in 2007 Drew was very active but his posts were completely tangential to whatever the thread was about.  I was completely confused but Yoda (an old time member who recently came back) explained to me - its just Drew don't worry about it.  If you donate then I'm thinking you have to immediately let go of it ... otherwise ... regrets :)

    The feeling is hard to explain, it is just a really weird feeling inside. A feeling of a great lack of vitality. 

     

     

    Is it a known thing - this energy getting sucked out of the plug hole?

     

    Yes some deep seated energy block could function like this.  Not be apparent until energy depleted.  But its only speculation - you need to find someone to advise you in person.

    My energy builds up over time. It takes a few days to feel normal. But these days I still feel a lack of energy compared to few years ago when I had a lot of energy to do things. Like I get exhausted earlier but it doesn't seem to me interfering with my life as much as the post-ejaculation experience.

     

    I was also feeling uncomfortable in the right region of my chest today.

     

    @freeform I don't feel much guilt or shame regarding this experience as I used to. I still do it out of a compulsion (as a reward for abstaining for 10 or 20 days) but this may not be the cause.

     


  11. I don't know the answer but I won't let this hold me back from replying :) If you feel physically ill at these times it would be a good idea to see a doctor and maybe get a blood test (which could check out your hormones as you suggest in 1) ).

     

    Once in ten days is certainly not excessive and at your age its surprising that its causing you problems - although I think you should not practice any qi gong for at least 24 hours after ejaculating to allow your subtle body to normalise.

     

    If I had to guess I would say you are suffering from an energy backlash where you don't just get the usual slight lowering of energy but more like it gets sucked down the plug hole.  The cause of this could be quite deep and maybe some Chinese meds or healing (from someone who knows what they are doing - finding such person being a problem) is the answer.  Don't self medicate tho' (its easy to get the wrong remedy online by misdiagnosis - I speak from experience :) ).

     

    How do you feel the rest of the time? OK or still low energy?
