  1. Ok so I have a much better idea now of basic buddhist practices like Sadhana, Mantra accumulation, vajrasattva and meditations including shamatha, vipassana, mahamudra, and dzogchen I met a drikung kagyu teacher and they were accessible and really cool seeming people, very sincere and caring people, but light hearted too. Buddhism can be so crazy sometimes though. It reminds me of a story I heard a long time ago, about like this Island where if sailors landed there, women would feed them lotuses, and then the men would never leave the island and time would pass away like a dream, they'd lose touch with reality That's what buddhism can be, it really takes over your mind, and mind state. Makes you forget reality and mundane activities. Next thing you know months pass and you've disengaged life a bit cuz your mind is always constantly thinking of the dharma, and compassion, and regret, and aversion to samsara, and you read these texts and all you think about is meditating more and getting more into that mind state, or true reality as it is, I won't say I see rigpa, but like the strong aspiration and desire to keep getting at rigpa, letting go into it, getting clearer and more aware every day, takes over your mind and personality. When I started, my worldly activities had strong momentum, and I would also have meditations to energize and engage in my daily life activities. As time goes by though the Buddhist practices keep piling up and taking over Yesterday I couldn't find motivation to engage in life at all. I couldn't find inspiration or interest in doing anything but meditating and reading mahamudra and dzogchen texts, and mantras. All day. Its good, but today I had to force myself to cut out all buddhism, to do tai chi and meditations for health and engaging life, I need to get that balance down again, cuz it got to a point buddhism, and milarepa, and aspirations of love for all beings, and renunciation of samsara was taking over a bit too much. If you meditate on these things and do sadhana's every day, they start habituating even after you are practicing and effecting you all day afterwards.

  3. Since the Covid-19 lockdowns began, Master Stephen Co has been doing live meditations every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, twice a day at 10:00am PST and 6:00pm PST on his website, Facebook, Instagram and other social media. I normally wouldn't have been interested but my gf is really into it so I gave it a try and it is actually really cool. I feel really blissful afterwards, with a strong flowing of energy through me, and widened energy pathways. It's so simple you just go to his Facebook. I'd just follow him on Facebook, that's easiest. He guides Meditation on Twin Hearts which is the foundation of what he practices, as well as The Great Invocation, and even little bits here and there of higher level practices of Arhatic Yoga. He's been being quite generous about opening up bits and pieces of the practices not usually taught openly. Fridays are deep emotional cleansing day. Follow him on Facebook, his meditations he leads for his followers are powerful, and he has his own "special sauce", or a powerful energy technique he uses to add more spiritual energy to the energy you are developing and make it a lot stronger. Tuesday Oct.13th at 6:00pm PDT he is giving a free class on Pranic Feng Shui and Pranic Healing called "Aligning Your Inner and Outer Worlds"
  4. The Most Dangerous Game

    Whoa this thread was ahead of it's time. In light of today it may be more relevant than ever. Basically fits right in with the mainstream headlines now Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, etc. %1%24s&
  5. Interview with the Spiritual Teacher Jon Peniel

    Well you may have answered your own question. I don't think Jon Peniel ever claimed to be John the Baptist or the teacher predicted by Edgar Cayce, but I don't know of any other Jon Peniel out there. The teachings certainly do develop the Pineal Gland. More on Jon Peniel and Edgar Cayce This article has the relevant parts of the actual Edgar Cayce reading. Interestingly this is one of the only readings where it was said that it wasn't necessarily Edgat Cayce's subconscious speaking, but an arch angel type of being, or a hierarchical being speaking through Cayce Author predicted by Cayce?
  6. Qs on integrating Taoism and buddhism

    It can be done. Dayan gong is both of Kunlun Taoist as well as Pure land Buddhist.
  7. So after not really doing this system for a couple years, I've been getting back into it the last couple months. The energy the meditations, energy exercises, yoga, etc are really powerful. Like rushing electric currents flowing and vibrating through you. In you and through you. Plus it seems to for me at least, connect or attach the energy to the will and consciousness at the same time. I showed the practice and teachings to some people who did things like other meditation systems and pranic arhatic healers and they said it had many similarities in principle and practice to what they did, but were taken aback at some things, they didn't think any teachers had revealed those things publically and didn't know that anyone outside of their practices knew some of these things. So a few people from other paths who practiced for many years or decades have told me Jon Peniel has revealed some things other teachers only teach privately. Looking back, now that I'm "older, wiser, and know better" lol, even I'm realizing how crazy and out there this system sounds, even to me it's hard to believe, and I practice it, but there's really something special here.
  8. The Real 4400

    This was eye opening, to think that extraterrestrials could have already made contact with humans
  9. Canna Bums

    Probably Marc Emery, or someone connected to him, he was basically responsible for North American bud overtaking Dutch bud as the highest quality on the planet and created many new strains.

  11. Best qi Gong To Tonify Shen

    For spiritual development, I've really been getting into Wild Goose qigong lately. I've really been drawn to it lately, it's really, really good.

    Good job man!
  13. BDSM, psycho-spiritual context?

    They could say it there, but it wouldn't be accurate and would demonstrate a sort of lack of experience with or understanding of the dynamics going on in a dating or sexual context.
  14. BDSM, psycho-spiritual context?

    I don't really know what people mean by "hook up" culture, if it even exists. Sex is a natural thing, if people are attracted to each other one thing has a way of leading to another and flirtation and chemistry are going to occur. There's nothing wrong with sex or "hooking up", and an ongong and deep connection can occur even if two people have sex on the first date or night meeting.
