  1. Celibacy, and also MCO

    Hi Raul, I'd take freeform advice too, he wrote a great post. There are many other practices that will give you good we'll being energy, without the dangers. Standing stake chi gung and any samatha meditation practice will take you way beyond emitting semen or not. wish you well with your practices...
  2. Celibacy, and also MCO

    Hi Raul, Yay to African music :)...the hearts energy seems different than the sexual energy from the organs... I'm much not a Mantak fan and heard a few bad stories about going against the bodies natural outlets or pleasures Let it be!
  3. Celibacy, and also MCO

    Hi Raul, You were asking for advice...good energetic feelings aren't just in the domain of ejaculation or not...theres a lot more going on...getting off on some good African rhythms beats orgasm Any day:)...Just saying about fixating...
  4. Celibacy, and also MCO

    Hi Raul, You seem to be fixated on ejaculation and energy wastage and your too young to be worrying about this. The worry will drain your energy more than ejaculation! I don't know what you've been reading but I would focus on a meditation to make the mind serene and peaceful. Take your pick, a good one would be anapanasati (mindfulness of breath) a Buddhist meditation with lots of resources online, better still go to a local Buddhist teacher. The fruit of this practice is calming energizing and can be quite blissful once you get good at it. For physical energy good diet and an exercise plan will cover it. Please don't worry about releasing semen it will lead nowhere and will do more harm than good in my opinion. That kind of practice requires a good foundation in meditation and a very good teacher, it is also unnecessary for spiritual growth which is the point of the practice, just one path amongst many... Good luck :)...
  5. Yi Jin Jing

    Yes the fire breathing is strong but can be scaled back as he describes to suit all types. Nourishing Qi is a lovely balancing practice to the above. As far as the warnings about it not being correct practice I imagine there are variations in all systems and it's to be seen what develops alongside the pushing contractions. Have to see how it goes :)....
  6. Yi Jin Jing

    Hi folks I'm signed up for the RP Yi jin jing course. So far at times we're using strong fire methods with reverse ab breathing. The activation of tissues/ sinews happens strongly on the exhale, the soft tissue activation reminds me of some of the practices in Yi chuan where there is stretching and pushing. Seems like an effective practice so far. Robert Peng makes the point that it is being taught correctly and a large part of that is correct use of breathing and lower dantian. He presents it well and seems very genuine. I'll report back further down the line.
  7. It strengthens and thickens ligaments and tendons...needs to be balanced with loosening exercises.
  8. All the above advice is worth a go...and try moving your scapular closer together by 1cm or so as the arms may be pulling the scapular to far forward. You'll have to experiment for comfort but the elbows should have a sense of not just going forward but also to the side. 2 hours a day is a lot and static postures will make you strong but also stiff if not balanced with movement exercises...imo 1 hour is plenty.
  9. Just like Chang says, best to stay clear. I've met him many years ago when he was focusing mainly on martial arts. I do not believe he carries the lineage of the Palyul tradition and may very well be self invented;)...
  10. For the time being and until you settle absolutely do not touch any alcohol or drugs of any kind. Spend time doing things you enjoy. Hopefully in a few weeks you'll settle down and if not then seek professional help. Wish you well
  11. This reminds me of a time when I was following the lei shan dao discussions here and elsewhere. The events involved Verdesi and also Jiang, this was the time of taking energy from cattle for healings and pills sold to provide similar healing after the master had assessed the students. On the Verdesi forum there were some complaints from participants (trainees) who had already paid a large fee and were told that they could not progress without further healing of their energetic bodies. One disappointed woman and others were asked to pay thousands of dollars for healings so they could progress on the path. It was no surprise that these critical comments were taken down shortly after. On a different matter I find it interesting that when John Chang projects his chi into people it appears to cause muscles to shake and tremble a bit like an electric current compared to Jiang Feng’s that appears to burn like a laser; and unfortunately I’d agree that there is a flash of light that does look very much like a laser. I don’t know the truth or method of these teachings, but it seems to me that there are a number of red flags…

  15. Ruthless Truth

    Sometimes I think the ideas about no self/self get complicated and too far away from anything we can relate to. Just the idea that I am not my.... feelings, thoughts, body, opinions, job, house, financial status etc....and why is that, simply because those things exist in awareness. So I am not them This is a starting point to explore what that awareness is and it also loosens the grip of identifying with the list of things above that are subject to change and therefore may cause suffering or enjoyment. I think most people can relate to this as part of everyday experience. Just what came to mind best wishes Andy
