  1. Looking for tips on reducing pride/ego.

    Root chakra cultivation helps "uptight" people, chill out.
  2. Receiving content for free is a double edged sword. I've noticed that most people never even value what they have and as a result don't use it to any great degree. Deep Gnosis, cannot be found, through spiritual fast food. Healthy and mutually beneficial exchanges are optimal.
  3. Zhineng Qigong Level 1 question

    Is Zhineng supposed to be a martial system?
  4. Zhineng Qigong Level 1 question

    Aside from doing the daily practice, there are other areas that should be monitored to receive maximum benefit from your training. Hold these in harmony. -Diet -Sexual Energy -Sleep -Muscle Tension (flexibility) -Expenditure of Mental and Emotional energy
  5. Relationship advice

    You are simping pretty hard for this girl. My advice: don't do it. Stay away from this situation at all costs. Put your dick in your pocket.....marriage is over-rated....you think once marriage happens it will solve your problems? Forming this kind of spiritual contract with another person whom is immature and not ready for a "life partner" may turn your life to a darker realm of Being. Welcome to TDB.
  6. "night hags"

    Psychic Self Defense is a thing. A quick trick is to put a small cactus in your room and have it guard the space. There are many books on the topic. Not sure what methods of cultivation your pursuing, but they may have some tools within the tradition for protection.
  7. He has a chapter in the book on that?
  8. This looks very cool. Thanks for sharing.
  9. How to step back and rest?

    Valuable talk on the subject.
  10. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    "Violence may begin when you wish. It does not end when you will." Niccolo Machiavelli
  11. Need some help with cultivation

    There's a lot of stuff going on.....i recommend you see a professional healer.
  12. Skeleton Meditations

    Still exploring, found strong correlations between Skeletal and Mountain chi. Mountains in many cultures are sacred spaces for the gathering/channeling of power and usually play a strong role in mythology. There is also a crossover between crystals and the skeletal system. Still don't fully understand, but I will likely do another post on Crystal Gong in the future.
  13. How to step back and rest?

    This is something i struggle with as well.....overtraining. If you got a lot of energy...it can be good to find another avenue to burn through it outside of metaphysical studies. Maybe start working out or doing a sport.
  14. Begginer experience

    You should abandon the path of cultivation.....it requires daily practice over many years to achieve above average results. Patience and discipline is required. Here are some signs of immaturity...you can grasp maturity by observing its opposite. Signs of immaturity 1. Feeling of being "above" others 2. Lacking patience/discipline 3. Messy-grey-dull aura 4. Messiah complex 5. Lacking control of one's Energy/Intent 6. Tense/Controlling Disposition .......etc
