  1. LDT (revisitation of Level 1)

    Level one of More Pie. Initially I put that in the thread, but I thought a general title about the LDT might be better.
  2. LDT (revisitation of Level 1)

    Ah ok I agree!
  3. LDT (revisitation of Level 1)

    What is H+T? Thanks
  4. LDT (revisitation of Level 1)

    Thank you for bringing that up! Yes Hindus do focus on the various Chakra, but do you feel the navel is as emphasized as it is in Taoism? One unique aspect of traditions such as More Pie, is how its entire practice almost revolves around that particular center (LDT).
  5. LDT (revisitation of Level 1)

    That one too I guess. Many traditions do not focus on the navel or LDT at all. The Hindus for example, albeit some traditions focus on the different chakra, do not seem to emphasize accumulation in the navel as do Taoist traditions. Some may perhaps say that filling of a chakra or dantien is a natural result of the opening of the nervous system and is not to be forced or overemphasized like some traditions.
  6. Greetings forum. I thought it would be interesting to examine some methods which I have seen spoken of regarding the "filling" of the LDT. Here are a few : 1. Meditation on simply focusing on the LDT. 2. Microcosmic Orbit incorporated into guiding chi to LDT. 3. Directly breathing chi into LDT without orbiting. 4. Similar to 1, but mantra is vibrated in LDT. 5. Accumulation/compression of chi in LDT without breathing it out. I would be interested to hear those who have tried these variations, or other methods of course, and what similarities or differences they experienced. Namaste
  7. The New World Order

    "Without the tao, Kindness and compassion are replaced by law and justice; Faith and trust are supplanted by ritual and ceremony." [Lao Tzu]
  8. Korean Taoist Master

    Koreans have a tendency to "exaggerate" in terms of authenticity. The history of the lineage sounds a bit ify. Interesting nonetheless.

    Those are great quotes! *bow*
  10. Is it possible to change?

    The deceitful character of the world comes out in the following ways. In the first place, it pretends that it will always remain with you, while, as a matter of fact, it is slipping away from you, moment by moment, and bidding you farewell, like a shadow which seems stationary, but is actually always moving. Again, the world presents itself under the guise of a radiant but immoral sorceress, pretends to be in love with you, fondles you, and then goes off to your enemies, leaving you to die of chagrin and despair. Jesus (upon whom be peace!) saw the world revealed in the form of an ugly old hag. He asked her how many husbands she had possessed; she replied that they were countless. He asked whether they had died or been divorced; she said that she had slain them all. "I marvel", he said, "at the fools who see, what you have done to others, and still desire you." [imam Al Ghazzali]

    Thank you for the heads up TI! Hopefully there will be another opportunity in the near future. Thanks again for letting us know about the event. Peace
  12. Kunlun in Alberta Canada

    Ah, I guess the seminar is tomorrow! I really want to go, and I probably could since it is not far away. It was kind of short notice unfortunately. I had no clue until this thread was posted. It is a bit pricey, I must say, considering I do not know who the person doing the seminar is, and my background knowledge of Kunlun is quite limited. I wonder if that makes a difference? I feel that I would also be missing an opportunity to meet a Kunlun teacher. How often do they hold seminars in Alberta? Ahhh............ Info from the website says: Didsbury, AB, Canada Kunlun with Douglas Day: 21th Time: 9-1pm and 2-6pm Location: White Raven Emporium, 2019 19th ave, Didsbury, AB Register: Douglas at [email protected]
