  1. Hopefully there is no reason why we fall in love. If there is a reason how could it be true love? Would that not be contrived love that can easily change to hate when our preconceived ideas do not line up with reality. Love grows I fell in love with a 16 year old girl (settle down I was 17) We are more in love today and our relationships is unreplaceable because of countless experiences and children and grandchildren shared together good or bad. The strength we now have and the absolute true love we share will last longer than heaven and earth. Please lose your mind when you experience love. Let it go, let it flow and get out of the way
  2. Modern Taijiquan Sucks!

    Flower fist and brocade legs is a old term for a person that does Tai Chi and does not have kung fu. For those interested in self defense one must practice Nei Jia Quan, Tai Yi, Laing Yi or Shaolin first. All Martial student are trained in Kung Fu first then graduate to Tai Chi Chuan. It is backwards in America and nothing Like Tai Chi Chuan taught in China. This is my own personal experience. Even push hands in america is very watered down and non effective as a fighting skill. Using to much force in american push hands is a cause to get disqualified. Lots of fighting is required to become good at it. Get your bruises in the training hall. Once someone is skilled at fighting the techniques used in Tai Chi Chuan is rightfully deserving of its name Supreme Ultimate Fist or Boxing.
  3. Winter Wetness : Woman Calls For Man

    Same here, not interested to hear about peoples private moments but at least I hope they are not doing it in public although this is a public forum. Private moments shared together or alone in privacy I am all about it. Going around talking or posting about touching yourself seems a bit weird to me. If I shared my intimate experiences I would be banned for being way to provocative, peoples computer screens would just melt, everything would become wet. Just messing with you.
  4. TCM - vegetarianism

    OK I will bite no pun intended. We all go through cycles and seasons of our lives so there is no absolute. On the mountain meat is served 3 days a week lots of little kids working hard that benefit from eating meat and meat is a luxury very special. Older folks mostly vegetarian and if you live at a temple not a school only vegetarian food is served. so there is no real political or moral standard of a chosen diet. I had a funny experience a student talking about the food and said I am vegetarian and the coach replied that is great and then another student said I eat meat and the coach replied that is great. It is all about balance with your body needs and it changes all the time. so that is my vague reply for now. The key is what is paired with your meals be it vegetarian or omnivore diets.
  5. Year of the Pig

    https://youtu.be/WDLI4pQt5pc A friend of mine sent me this link of a cute pig. I sent it to my grand son as well.
  6. Winter Wetness : Woman Calls For Man

    Sexed crazed prevails at TDB perverting and misleading the most natural of processes. I would be ashamed of mincing Taoist terms with perversion. We already have Chia and Healing Dao (the sex schools) to mislead people and keep them in birth and death forever. Oh well rant over BUT poem seems funny if that is the intention nothing to do with actual philosophy but what the hell lets keep it below the belt, so exciting.
  7. Water above Fire

    Better to stick with gut feelings with internal work. As above, so below," an ancient Taoist saying describes the link between our brains and our bellies. In Japanese culture, the term hara, which means belly, is the physical and spiritual centre of a person's being, yet it also refers to one's state of mind and character. In Chinese culture, tan tien defines the belly as the seat of feeling and awareness, and the source of chi or energy. The sacred dances, martial arts, healing arts and body prayers of many ancient cultures in North America, Europe, Africa and India, honor the belly and acknowledge its wisdom and power as our natural center. Western medicine is very aware of the second brain. The second brain contains some 100 million neurons, more than in either the spinal cord or the peripheral nervous system, Gershon says. This multitude of neurons in the enteric nervous system enables us to "feel" the inner world of our gut and its contents. More importantly Happy New year, May the new year bring health, wealth and happiness to all.
  8. Water above Fire

    Also we need to heat up the water so it will rise and cool down the fire so it will sink. Regulate the furnace, not too hot, not too cold.To help energy go down the descending channel a very subtle 5% tilt forward on exhale not noticeable visually will help. As we breath in the body rises and as we breath out the body sinks fun and noticeable while taking a bath or during sitting meditation. We live between heaven and earth so simultaneously we have a lifting energy connected to heaven and a sinking energy connected to earth within our bodies. A south pole (fire, heaven, yang so on) at the crown of the head and a north pole (water, earth, yin so on and so on) at the base. Interesting that the inventors of the compass have a south pointing needle, the south on top (advance, summer, fire and so on and so on..
  9. Water above Fire

    I left semen off the list of liquids because people are sex crazed around here. When I practice sex never entered my mind that would be stepping back into birth and death and I do not like to retard my practice.
  10. Water above Fire

    I was worried he was going to fall down. I would feel a lot better if he was holding onto a pole or something. For the infirm or those who lack balance a great simple exercises. Nothing to do with internal alchemy if this is still the topic and if it is a formless before birth energy Jing is a liquid??? what is happening and how exactly could that even make sense? associated with blood, sweat, tears, sylvia in the post heaven body that dies does not mean jing is a liquid BTW
  11. I see everything as empty. If my mind attaches thoughts of true, false, good, bad, table, chair it is only my thoughts attached to something that is empty. Things simply do not care about thoughts and thoughts do not change things If I say this is a chair many would agree of the chariness but the insane will see a sprout become a tree to become a sitting devise and then turn to dust. The insane may also wonder why a chair is needed when we can just sit down on the entire earth so the earth becomes a chair. Normal people as we call them are mostly mentally ill. IMO
  12. Advice for Wudang Schools for Study

    Hi Rara I go to the Taoist Kung Fu academy next to purple heaven palace. Master Gu is not far from there just of the main road. White horse mountain 5 immortals temple is off the beaten path and is a temple so rules are more strict for activities and diet living on the mountain. You can change schools while you are there many people do but I love to be close to the temples and a 3 hr walk to the top. Wednesdays are half days and Thursdays off to explore, soooo much to see it is amazing. Ask me any question and I will respond. The school you choose can send an invitation to get you a visa and I have travel information for you as well. Very exciting. Master Gu is like living with a family so that is cool. Before you go make plans with the school to have someone meet you at the airport, help getting to a hotel near the train station, meet you in the morning to get you on the train. At the other end of the train ride someone can meet you a get you to where you are going. I could go on and on so questions are helpful.
  13. Water above Fire

    Fire, water, tiger, dragon, lead, mercury, yin, yang in the context of MCO they would all mean the same thing. lead sinks and mercury rises. easy to put that together. original mind sinks and accursed mind rises to take control of affairs when one does not turn around. This has nothing to do with MCO just using the two words mercury and lead in a different context. All things start at the foundation as many here have already given the correct information needed. At the foundation (ming men gate) (kidney region) bring this so called water up the spine over head just under the nose and so called fire down the front wrap around to the ming men gate in between the kidneys. With that out of the way this is a feeling awareness art of what is happening in your body. The feeling is way more important than any words. Do some Taoist breathing sitting still and feel your body becoming warm. A great starting point with out teacher and not having a guide to pass through this territory.
  14. It is all legit he grew up on the mountain he demonstrates true skill. If you live near boston and can train with him you will benefit greatly. Personal experience is far greater then a website or PR to promote of a product. It Takes time for someone to get to know you and gain their trust. Once one can prove themselves worthy of the teaching they will enter the inner circle. Most masters will teach the outer forms all day long to anybody but the true skill is in the details and inner work. In brief not a waste of time if done in person with respect to your master forever even if you are lucky enough to exceed their skill and good luck with that when someone like Master Zhou has been training at a very young age, 8 hours a day.
  15. How do I gain weight and gain fat in a healthy way?

    @ yuuichi Have you tried grazing meaning many small meals a day. We have a lot in common with very effective metabolism I can feel the energy conversion of anything I eat and I eat very well natural, organic, whole foods much of what I eat is locally sourced. I am in a unique situation that allows me to eat this way. Being young and thin always bummed me out BUT on the bright side I am well into my 50's now and my body is like it was at 18. I do physically demanding martial arts and exercise so this condition is also my advantage as I become older. 18 year olds that have not been training there whole life are unable to do what I can do or even keep up so good luck on your journey you are being pro active and aware of the situation well done. Having great metabolism, is a blessing.
