  1. Thoughts on ignoring posts or posters you [u]dislike[/u]
  2. Mother Earth

    Of course!
  3. So - you think you have rhythm?

    This bird loves to get down. You can find him busting a move to 'Another One Bites The Dust' if you follow the 'tube links. NW
  4. Mother Earth

    Agree with all. The earth is a living being in every sense. NW
  5. Kundalini?

    Yes these things do happen. My own cure would be some palliative spiritual cleansing, relaxation exercises... but mostly self-knowledge. NW
  6. So - you think you have rhythm?

    too perfect... I love the way the crest looks right in the last frame... that bird is waaaaay into it. NW
  7. Q: How many Marxists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: None: The light bulb contains the seeds of its own revolution. Q: How many Jewish mothers does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: None. (``That's all right...I'll just sit here in the dark...'') Q: How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb? A: Three, but they're really only one. Q: How many Roman Catholics does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: Two. One to do the screwing, and one to hear the confession. Q: How many dadaists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: To get to the other side. All from: ... a pretty encyclopedic collection. If you want to know what 'probably the only really good light bulb joke of 1984' was, head over there now. All best wishes, ~NeutralWire~
  8. how do you do it?

    Cool yeah? Who knew?! Forgot to say also that the acupressure on 12 ordinary channels that Trunk is talking about is also a real help in that whole area of calm. Really educates the energy and smartens it up, recommend this. NW
  9. how do you do it?

    I think you have to have two strategies for this, the long-term and the short-term. Long-term is you have to relax your body half hour per day, pref. go to no-mind for a long period, and be well-exercised. That will work wonders. And sort out your personality so your hot buttons go away and you become deep and grounded, then life won't shift you away from calm in the first place. After a while of doing that I've developed methods I love. Short-term, I really like EMDR -- or EMT, as this book calls it, 'Eye Movement Technique' -- . Lots of people like EFT as well. From a western reflexology manual I learned to use interlaced fingers, slightly squeezed at the base and held for a few minutes, to calm anxiety. That always worked. I was very surprised to find it demonstrated here: ... by a young Masaaki Hatsumi as part of a ninja-lineage calming technique. Most important is to be aware throughout the day also, probably everyone knows that; I am not sure how obvious these answers should be getting. EDIT: Also, not being around assy, sensitive, easily-threatened arguey people who are desperate about their lives, don't know how to be satisfied and enjoy themselves... is really good for this. Good luck on that one. I know it really 'shouldn't' make a difference, but when you're with cool people, it's just so much easier All best wishes, ~NeutralWire~
  10. Accessable Self-Acupressure

    Good thought on the eight extraordinary channels points too. NW
  11. The danger of radical Islam

    Pietro -- If you wanted places to start try John Michael Greer's brilliant analysis on, plus his two fave historians of cultural anatomy, Arnold Toynbee and Oswald Spengler. Plenty of books about collapse out there right now of course, but you can trust these three. NW
  12. User feedback

    I want that, good idea! It's a clutter thing... if it's really years, is there anything wrong with putting a Personal page in a separate subforum? -- to be replaced on the main page if it is taken up again, of course. NW
  13. Responsible for our words

    hagar -- Well I also hear you, but I literally cannot be any more responsible about it than I am already. And personally I would not worry about having changed your mind, which is one of the prerogatives of owning one. When you say: ... I have noticed a tendency (usually cured very quickly by experience) for people to choose a spiritual path as if choosing a brand of cereal... I'm afraid I get rather Glenn about it. I'll avoid misleading but I can't give personal advice to impersonal hordes of 'uninformed and misinformed people'... what those people need to do is get informed. We all had to. I always answer pms on this topic because I realize how important it is. But you cannot repeat caveats ad nauseum either... All best wishes, ~NeutralWire~
  14. I really hope so. I am another who thinks that Santiago had nothing to defend. I'm very surprised this has lasted so long, and can't quite see what is being accomplished here. NW
  15. The danger of radical Islam

    Love this
