  1. That was wonderful.
  2. The best part of beginning and ending is before the beginning and after the ending then we know the past and the future and this amazing feat changes nothing, we are still a third party. so a woodpecker walks into a bar and ask is the bar tender here? What changes does not require a witness, it is not a performance art or entertainment to watch as an observer.The illusion is being the witness and in life we adjust by being the victim, the prosecutor and the judge in an endless cycle. Meanwhile what has never changed is completely overlooked, timeless, eternal, before and after, during the day and at night. The reason some maybe scared to be alone in the dark is because they feel that they are not alone. As a kid I was scared of the dark as an adult my power bill makes me scared of the light. the difference between artificial light and real light is that real light is free. This does not work out well for the established system of consumers so others can make money when you make money or spend money. Let's just all agree that this piece of paper with a number on it has value and we will all get along just fine, it is just not real this is why we pay for the artificial and not the real..
  3. Tao in the human world is funny allowing the human mind to be in charge instead of the great kind minister of shen to direct affairs and keep all in balance. If human mind was to take control we could live in a world like this, so funny it's sad. At least we do not attach to suchness and surf the wave in our favor. The great mystery beyond preconceived thought, the home land we have never left. soak up the light. and enjoy the sunrise for the first time.
  4. I thought this was a dating site!! like farmers only, them city folk just don't get it. On Tao bums you get some tao and zen. I feel sorry that everyone swiped left for jessup. Looking for jerks, freaks and clowns is a bad profile to hook up for a good time tao and zen. Good luck on the search maybe a circus site would be a much better fit for jessup.
  5. I am flowers, I am tire, I am also not a tire or flowers. Once we are one thing we are also not the thing. We are the stuff of everything and also not the stuff of everything. Stuff comes from no stuff so until I am no stuff I will be and not be at the same time, separated and confused, never knowing the true source of self attaching labels for some kind of identification and uniqueness different from all things. I am this but not that, The true emptiness that is not empty can reconcile the difference as we become one with all things. We all use the same light no matter what labels we choose to be and how we create the I am. What makes us different also makes us the same.
  6. Look into sitting 8 pieces of brocade. Acupressure, tapping, vibration, rubbing self massage all included. I do these everyday as well as people that never heard about these techniques all very natural things to do.
  7. I believe it was Chang Tzu story but he does not mention Lao Tzu in the story. Seems someone made up their own version. Read the original for clarity.
  8. I am a fire horse I have brought many blessings to my family. I am glad they did not throw me in the trash when I was born maybe I am just lucky or not a girl...ouch. Fear is awesome people seem to love it. For a good dose of fear I like to watch the news. This year Tao Bums is going to the dogs. Who let the dogs out.
  9. This thread reminds me that I am not just a brian. For all those with high IQs I have misspelled brain to mess with your exceptional minds. It is fun to direct intelligent minds to focus on a singular thing while we dance in the limitless. The very intelligent know everything about parts of things.
  10. After just a few years of practicing internal martial art at the age of 20 I had an incredible experience. I searched the world over for some type of explanation. Nothing remotely close from western systems during my research. After years of failing to find the right written words I discovered the golden flower the first time I read it I was was like this is describing my own experience how wonderful. So How did this happen. For me I was simply sitting outside on the ground for some meditation and everything was illuminated a great sense of peace and happiness overcame me. This experience was not fleeting it lasted for weeks on end never leaving the experience. I had many incredible things happen being around other people. I was able to put my thoughts in their minds with out a word from me they could understand my thoughts. This is just one of the manifestation of this state of being much more to add maybe latter.
  11. All living bodies generate an external field of energy called Wei Qi (pronounced “whey chee”), which translates as “protective energy.” This field of Qi protects the body from the invasion of external pathogens and communicates with, as well as interacts with, the surrounding universal and environmental energy fields. Both internal and external pathogenic factors affect the structural formation of the Wei Qi. The internal factors include suppressed emotional influences (such as anger and grief from emotional traumas). The external factors include environmental influences when they are too severe or chronic, such as Cold, Damp, Heat or Wind, etc. Physical traumas also affect the Wei Qi field. Any negative interchange affects the Wei Qi by literally creating holes within the matrix of the individual’s external energetic fields. When left unattended, these holes leave the body vulnerable to penetration, and disease begins to take root in the body. Strong emotions, in the form of toxic energy, become trapped within the body’s tissues when we hold back or do not integrate our feelings. These unprocessed emotions block the natural flow of Qi, thus creating stagnant pools of toxic energy within the body. As far as TV, Music and woman I thought it was sex, drugs and rock n roll at one time That is all self inflicted so all one has to do is stop it, stop putting so much energy into it so one does not allow themselves to be robbed. If you have a house and do not lock it up then robbers can easily take your stuff so do not leave the front door unlocked. the metaphor is you are the house inviting robbers to come in and take your stuff. Lock it up, seal the passes, return to the center and bring all that free energy with you.
  12. The unity of opposites is the central category of dialectics, said to be related to the notion of non-duality in a deep sense.It is viewed sometimes as either a metaphysical concept, a philosophical concept or a scientific concept. It defines a situation in which the existence or identity of a thing (or situation) depends on the co-existence of at least two conditions which are opposite to each other, yet dependent on each other and presupposing each other, within a field of tension. Red hot coals the most energetic compared to ash black the least energetic makes red and black polar complete. Man and woman are polar complete, water and fire, blind folded being burned is a numb feeling and touched by ice has a burning sensation. so the person is not delusional thinking a burning feeling is in fact fire. Duality is for comparison and human minds uses this for separating and categorizing things. There are three sides to a coin yin and yang and the edge of the coin. The edge is understanding non duality BUT it must be actual polar complete opposites. Using awareness then everything is empty and it is only our thoughts that go around labeling, categorizing and separating reality.
  13. That video has to be embarrassing for Wolf. I was thinking even if it was real, the amount of time it took to issue weak force to turn an empty coffee cup it would have been all over in a fight. I would have enjoyed it much more if the coffee cup flew through the walls of his house and cut down everything outside on its way of turning into powder.
  14. As I see it, martial arts began with violence. Throughout history, in times of chaos and war, people have needed to protect themselves and their loved ones. Those with skill and experience taught others. Set training drills and forms were used as teaching tools. But over time, warfare evolved beyond just hand to hand combat. As the need for sparring and applications shrank, the role of forms grew. In modern times, many martial arts students have technique (having learned through forms) but do not have experience fighting. MMA is an exception, as its #1 goal is to train good fighters. Fighting requires speed, force, and knowing how to take a hit. Sure, tai chi contains techniques that can be used in a fight. But, there is no way around it…the only way to learn how to fight is by fighting. Practicing tai chi forms alone will not teach students to fight. So, if we do not practice tai chi in order to fight, why do we practice tai chi? Tai Chi is more than a martial art, it is the synthesis of the best parts of Chinese culture. It is what happens when martial arts meet qigong and Chinese philosophy head on. Tai chi develops strength, balance, coordination, focus, and stillness of heart and mind. Understanding the principles of yin and yang will benefit all aspects of your life, from business to interpersonal relationships. Tai chi is a life art, and is an art you can practice for a lifetime. Tai Chi and MMA have a very different focus. When we practice tai chi, we are fighting weakness, uncertainty, instability, insecurity, and stress. What can help us advance our art is not to compare it another art with a different focus. The goal of each style is different, and each is attaining its goals. It is more valuable to understand the nature of your art, and seek the wisdom found there.
  15. The fight streamed live, and overnight Xu’s social media account exploded. He brought in money doing Q&A sessions and streaming interviews. In video rants filled with profanity, he declared traditional martial arts teachers liars and thieves, calling out many by name, including Chen Zhenglei, Chen Xiaowang, and Chinese kickboxer Yi Long. However, things quickly went downhill for Xu. While many netizens agreed with him, others felt it was all a publicity stunt. Xu’s words were unpopular in part because of the current sociopolitical climate in China. Over the last hundred years, China has faced exploitation and humiliation at the hands of Western nations, civil war, Communist revolution, and self-imposed isolation. China re-emerged onto the world scene in the 1980s. Fueled by the destruction of our natural resources, China has ridden the wave of globalization and technological advancement to reach to a standard of living previously impossible. With full bellies and comfortable lives, many have begun the soul-searching process of discovering what is means to be Chinese. Part of this growing nationalism is a renewed interest in traditional art forms. Many called Xu a traitor for attacking a traditional Chinese style. Some even suggested he was working for a foreign country to cause unrest. One Chinese multi-millionaire offered a 10 million RMB ($1.45m) prize to anyone who could use tai chi to defeat Xu. A video that surfaced online showed him being harassed on the street. When the police came, even they taunted him, saying he should be able to protect himself. Xu soon appeared crying, saying he had lost sponsorship, and that his businesses had been forced to close. As I write this, his social media accounts have been blocked, and he has gone into hiding. It took Xu only 10 seconds to destroy a tai chi master, and only 10 days to destroy his own life.
