  1. Is it just me?

    I second this, especially if you look into some of the older threads and the personal practice threads of some of the more prominent members of the forum, they can be really insightful and quite useful in developing your own practices.
  2. She wants me to cum

    And besides! Having that partner there with you just makes it all the better because you have that crucial exchange of Zinc ions between you and your partner which is scientifically proven to be beneficial to both parties.

    Hello hello!
  7. 3g Networks Safe?

    Light use of 3g networks probably doesn't harm you all that much. However I do notice that with prolonged use and exposure, I do get more frequent headaches and other odd things which happen health wise. So as long as you're not a heavy user of 3g networks, I don't think it should be much of a problem. When I was younger (in high school) I remember when old CDMA phones would give me odd headaches because I was not accustomed to the cellular radio signals.
  8. The purpose...

    .... so .... all of this banter and discussion when the main point of this thread was to basically state something that's been said many times about living life, "Just be." Way to go reinventing the wheel that's already been discovered, built, and studied countless numbers of times in all kinds of contexts. While I'm not saying that someone is not entitled to having their own realization moments, this is probably one of those that should go in one's own repretoire rather than something used to provoke reaction by others in the world.
  9. Power of Feng shui

    This is a pretty good point that you bring up. However its all true unless you live near areas which are basically a sink or a drain for your energy (i.e. Cemeteries, Graveyards, etc) that can barely be helped by practicing Qigong, even if you're really far along in cultivation.

  11. Power of Feng shui

    Wow, these are pretty epic photos IMHO And I also think that I'm beginning to get a good understanding of what types of structures use feng shui in their design
  12. Power of Feng shui

    In my studies of the subject, Feng shui is relatively reliable in terms of the benefits that are observed and gained through its application in day to day settings. Though I have also seen that Feng Shui has an interesting similarity to Vastu Shastra, which is an Indian method of removing obstructions to energy and harmonizing one's surrounding environment. Feng Shui seems to me more fluid and applicable to scenarios which are fluid and changing constantly, whie Vastu seems to be for environments that are more clear cut and succinctly defined. So while I would say that Feng Shui is certainly Taoist in its setup and in its practices, I wouldn't necessarily say that Feng Shui grew out of Taoism as a branch per se. But in any case, I have seen multiple instances in which feng shui (when applied properly) has helped the person(s) who took the initiative to apply feng shui to their spaces Also I think it would be great if anyone here knows about the use of Feng Shui in China today for urban planning and building as well, as I am not well versed in the subject. It would seem that the older style of architecture was more permitting of feng shui concepts than newer, more western inspired buildings are - but that's just my two cents.
  13. Hello and an Inquiry

    Howdy and welcome aboard, I started out working with Qigong using books and other resources that I found useful through libraries and such, so I never really ended up paying money to learn methods and techniques for cultivation practices. That said once I found resources that I really liked, I ended up buying the books I found useful as a signature of support for the authors and masters who worked on those resources.
