  1. Hi there Gaelicrock. Vajra means thunder or unbreakable and Hridaya means heart.

  2. Ingesting Apple Cider Vinegar increases chi?

    I've been using it for a while now. It certainly does improve one's energy and aids with my digestive system. It aids with the cleansing of the liver and the detoxification of the body. Anything that helps your body will more than likely help your chi.
  3. She wants me to cum

    I do not have sex with my girlfriend, because she is not of age, and honestly I think vaginas are gross. Like, I fainted in health class, lol. However, we do dry humping and such, lol, laugh if you will. The problem is, the burst of hormonal imbalance causes problems for me, including eyesight problems and chin acne. So, I am a little hesitant about praticing this ejaculating the fluid while concerving the energy. Is this practicable while simply masturbating? I have increased my ability to delay the ejaculation.
  4. First day of school today! whoo!

  5. Choosing a Practice

    Hello, I am still relatively new to this wonderful forum. I had a thought today, and I wanted to put my question here, so that people who are still searching for their "Way" can gain some insight on what made YOU choose your path into the Way. Let me explain: There are so many different practices out there; Nei Kung, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Taoist Yoga, the martial arts, zazen, etc. Tell me, what did you go through to determine what was right for you? I'll go first. I am sure that I am one of the least accomplished in terms of knowledge of the tao and all the myriad concepts. Most of the forums here, I've got google up beside them and am typing in every other term I come across. I've experimented with meditation, qi gong, tai chi, and yoga. I learned about the chakras and kundalini and found that this suits me. Now, I am a Scorpio born in the Year of the Horse with a Vata constitution, so I've been given a triple whammy of restlessness. Before you say anything, I did not check my date of birth out and figure out what I was or take some "Which one are yoU?" tests online. I've studied all of these "new age" concepts and have found all of them to be very valid systems. Though if I had to choose one, the Chinese Zodiac seems the most vague, even with its monthly and secret animals, its too screwy for me. Going on, I find that I have the most trouble with stillness cultivation and meditative techniques, and I favor yoga and tai chi, walking meditation, and observing nature. I can go very deep inside of myself when I want to, but I have not developed as much endurance as I'd like with meditation. Please feel free to comment on my experience, and please please please post yours! Namaste
  6. But are you happy?

    Hmm,I think it was a boddhisatva,upon meditating for enlightenment, who said, "Now I can rejoice, that there is no joy in this world!" What do you think he meant by that?
  7. siddhasana

    Hey man, check out the electricenergy link I gave you. It provides a lot of information on learning how to sit in postures that are unusual for us westerners. Basically, take it slow. Practice becoming more flexible. Until you can comfortably sit in full lotus, don't strain yourself. There's nothing wrong with the other positions. Full lotus is a big help with keeping upright, so i'd definitely go for it!
  8. Immortals vs. Bodhisattvas (or arahats)?

    Ah ok! That sounds very nice! While we are at it, how was my interpretation of Taoism?
  9. siddhasana

    That would depend upon what sort of "effects" you are a looking for. This is a good site concerning yogic poses and practices like siddhasana. As for the third eye, here is how you open it. Start by learning how to open your chakras. You must start with the root chakra. Nothing can be achieved until your root chakra is in balance. Take your time. Do not be in a hurry to reach any goal. Sit in siddhasana, do the mudras, and learn about yourself. You are a great mystery in yourself. Boundless and limitless, you will surprise yourself at every turn. These are not empty flowery words. I promise, there are powers within you that you have never dreamed of. I hope these links will help you. Remember, the worst thing you can do is try to rush your practices. In the end, it really won't matter whether it took four months, four years or forty years. Namaste
  10. Immortals vs. Bodhisattvas (or arahats)?

    Well, many people consider "Fight Club" to be a movie steeped in Taoist principles. The Narrator takes classes on Buddhist meditation and "escaping" from this plane of existence. In the movie, Tyler spills an acidic chemical on the Narrator's hand. In response, the Narrator attempts to retreat into his "spirit cave" and find his "power animal." Tyler is very distraught by this and tells him, "Don't deal with this like those dead people do! THIS is your burning hand. THIS is your reality." Buddhism seems to be about escaping the world around us, which is full of suffering and death. Taoism is about embracing the natural world, breaking all the fetters of reality, and becoming one with the world around us.
  11. Body Fat and Qi

    Well, I have been skinny my whole life. I am 5'11" and a year ago I weighed 152lbs. After a year of training and giving up dairy products, I weigh 136lbs. I lost most of it in my legs. My thighs are nothing but muscle. I do yoga, tai chi, and other qi cultivating exercises.
  12. Oo.

    I have not.

    What's that all about?

  13. Well relaxing:)

    Been studying Dark Zen.

    Heard anything about it?

  14. Getting rid of stress

    So, I've discovered that I have the amazing ability to make myself think I have health problems, which are really all in my mind. Ex. I used to get stomachaches all the time, until one day I was like "no more stomachaches!" and they were gone! Now, I was tested for scholeosis (sp?) four/five years ago, and it was determined that I was fine, even though I do have a little curviture in my spine. Presently, I am experiencing some annoying back pain that I am fairly sure is just caused by stress and paranoia. My question is, how do I get this stress out of my body? I seem to put the stress somewhere (my stomach, now my back) instead of getting rid of it. Any advice? Also, I have a strange, bone-hard lump inside the back of my neck, right next to the spine just under the skull. It is akin to a much smaller lump on the left side. Is this a stress lump?
  15. I'm doin good man how about you?
