  1. Neanderthal Diet/Human Protein Max

    Killing plants is totally cool, we get to kill things and have a mental separation of higher and lower life forms. Who does god love most a plant, an animal, a baby or a baptized baby? This was an illustration from bible school when I was a kid. The correct answer IMO is that the question is wrong in sooo many of ways.
  2. How to avoid wet dreams ?

    When we have quantity and quality of vitality/ Jing it gives us more and better energy / chi. To lift a tea cup one must will it to happen, will power, with out energy lifting is not possible. Vitality creates the body, chi moves the body and spirit moves chi The transformation of Jing to Chi is a natural one. For spirit to move chi requires virtue, excellent character. Jing is not sexual energy. Wet dreams are because of attachment of the mind it is not a good or bad thing.I would not put any energy or chi into the situation that just feeds the fire and wet dreams becomes a problem. just hit the ignore button. Be a really bad host to that guest and they will not stay long.
  3. Celibacy, and also MCO

    Jing is not sexual energy a major modern mistake such as Chia teachings used as a marketing plan that sex sells. Sex is a neutral form of energetic exchange. energy is spirit in motion. sex is spiritual because sex is neutral, it can become a vehicle for what you value. Sexual energy can be cultivated and directed to energize your manifesting power, stoke, your ultimate creative potential. Sexuality is a bridge to the Divine. Dare to awaken it's potential to heal, restore, and guide you on your path. All things in moderation balance and harmony. Having a good relationship with sex by not denying or encouraging sex or playing with ones self and allow things to be natural will keep energy from stagnating and to not become an obstacle on ones path.
  4. This experience also shows that if the earth was flat the cats would have pushed everything off by now. I like the Chinese round long pillow it helps support my shoulders and neck. On mount wudang my pillow feels like tiny rocks and the bed is super firm. After 8 + hours of kung fu a day I do not wake up sore.
  5. Mind and breath rest on each other if mind is distracted use breath to adjust. If breath is rough use mind to adjust. Imagine a meditative state where all systems slow down including the breath and mind is sharp and very aware. This is as if breathing has stopped. Following the breath is awesome then we see how a single thought changes the breathing. Taoist breathing is mixing post heaven and pre heaven Chi. We are basically training the breath to be like an infant the reversal of chest breathing then mouth breathing that leads to the last breath.
  6. Bruce has it right the breath should revolve like the yin yang symbol. At higher stages long smooth breathing so the ears can not hear the breath. This breathing pattern has tremendous healing and power qualities. with lower abdominal breathing this smooth round breathing massages the organs and helps keep them in proper position. stillness is like you are not breathing at all. Putting too much attention on breathing will stagnate energy so once you get it without thinking and is just normal breathing all day the positive effects will show up quickly.
  7. Internal Family System

    A holistic therapy is a good thing. Internal sensation and working with autonomic nervous system should have a physical discipline to be administered such as Tai Chi Chuan. Is this something that is included in IFS not tai chi per say but any kind of movement or is it physiological?
  8. Dealing with extreme twists and blockages in channels

    Proper body mechanics and physical work will do the trick and give a chance for you to loose your mind.Your channels will operate just fine if you stop thinking about it. Observation is your friend.
  9. Thoughts on Energy Arts / B.K. Frantzis

    BK has a great linage and history. Great opportunity I would go for it.
  10. Internal Family System

    Talking out problems and situations is a very positive thing to do before using a middle man and a very normal thing to do. The talk and emotions expressed are finding solutions and compromise. When people fail to communicate and get an outsider involved is usually the first step to divorce or medical medication to "fix mental issues or endless sessions that is profitable to the establishment and spiritually and materially bankrupts the patient. Always exceptions that seem to succeed...well the ones that get paid. Kidding
  11. Internal Family System

    I was hoping this thread was about traditional family systems of internal martial arts. Many new to internal arts missed out on many of these forms with applications. Modern forms are a blend of different family styles.. One of my first teachers Master Jou Tsung hwa taught Chen, Yang, Wu and Cheng Man Ching forms which is exceptional. IFS seems to be about mental problems with no physical discipline just mind games and counseling. The Taoist arts as many like Carl Jung have found is the superior method to a healthy life and mental balance. Talk therapy has a destructive side. Thoughts are like groves of an album by talking out negative emotions and experience it allows the grooves to become deeper not allowing a person to move on with alternative positive thought patterns. the caterpillars remains an un born butterfly.
  12. An acupuncturist posted this

    The women's sanctuary seems to have a breach of security. Sharing experiences with other woman. I am obviously in the wrong place. Please excuse the intrusion. I saw acupuctur as topic and started reading. Now I feel like that creepy guy looking through the window. When I have a . I will be sure to chime in.
  13. Are there any other leftists here? πŸ‘€

    Being spiritually bankrupt we will seek to buy happiness. It is interesting for those that fall for the trap of education, hospitals and modern convenience as to make other peoples lives better. This is exactly what government does to make people dependent on a system. BUT look at all the information on how miserable these people are, in poverty, ripped apart by disease, starving to death, Why because of money and sanctions of governments... join or die. If we hike 5 miles to get water do you know how precious that water is and how gratifying it is to have water...fulfillment. Grow and eat your own food, do you know how gratifying it is to have food....fulfillment. If we buy food from a grocery store we are discontented from nature. If we buy clothes in a store we are disconnected and DEPENDENT. It is a great system just not for the humans. If I grow food and you make clothes and Mr Smith is a great builder there is no need for money we exchange and are one. Money represents population and natural resources of a country. This determines a countries wealth with the world banking system. If we do not need money to grow our food, make clothes, tools and shelters living of the land the new world system fails. Modern education is a system for conditioning future workers that will gather the resources or do specific task for the owners. Native Indians found it confusing that a western school was sitting in a room to learn, that is a very bizarre notion that we take as normal. Removing people from nature is another excellent example of how to mis direct and mis inform the people to fall for the system. They have no other alternative for survival except to accept it. Third world country actually means traditional culture that does not rely on the new world system for survival.
  14. The Chinese Communist Revolution

    Bound to be beautiful: The bizarre practice of foot-binding was once a symbol of beauty in China Foot-binding – a widespread custom in China which lasted for over 1,000 years – from the 10th to 20th century, is considered by many to be one of the most dangerous fashion trends in history. For centuries, tiny, curved feet were a symbol of beauty in the Chinese culture, and the bizarre tradition of foot-binding was passed from mother to daughter, generation to generation, The fashion trend was soon adopted by upper-class women in the south of China and eventually, it spread to the north of the country. While at the beginning it was considered a symbol of high social status and wealth, eventually it spread to all women, regardless their social position. Neck rings seem like another fashion trend that seems bizarre we seem to be a lot more tame with modern fashion and we can by boots that look like hoofs
  15. Sexual Jing: Is It Really Limited (?)

    Below is a blog from my freind Master Chen that may be helpful please notice that sex is not mentioned. the classics to do not mention sex because sex energy is not jing. The classics us sexual relationship as metaphor to give birth to our true self, the divine immortal that is always with us, the super being that is inside of us all. Sexual energy comes from the post heaven mind, it is mind driven. It is a major error to think sexual energy is jing, Now here is the simplified blog enjoy. Health and rejuvenation depend on increasing the quality and quantity of Jing and Qi. What methods can you use? The first method is seated meditation. This is the method of stillness. The next method is slow Tai Chi in which you focus on the waist. All action starts from the waist (the Dan Tian). Then breathe. Use the breath to cooperate mind and action, to gain cooperation of tiger and dragon. Tai Chi has 8 different actions and 5 postures. This is the method of motion. Dao Yin is the third way to collect Jing. Dao Yin is between stillness and motion. It includes the 12, 16 and 8 pieces brocade. It includes Qi Gong – Qi Gong is Dao Yin. Qi Gong is supporting exercise. In order to collect Qi, the meridians must be smooth and unblocked. Qi Gong smoothes the meridians. When the Qi transmuted from meditation and Tai Chi, then we need the channels to transport the Qi. When the organs are healthy, at the end of the day, they give back left over Yuan Qi and Yuan Jing. This goes back to the Dan Tian. Diet and nutrition are also important. Better health is achieved if you are 80% vegetarian, and 20% non-vegetarian. At first, when you are rebuilding your foundation, you should have meat. If you are a healer or body worker you should continue at least 20% meat until you are ready to give up your practice. It is best to eat fresh, organic foods and to avoid preserved and deep fried foods. Avoid lead and mercury tainted foods, avoid super heated oils, and avoid pickled foods. When you practice these the body will initially become very sensitive to its intake. You will feel it if you bring in polluted foods. Yang quality of food is preferred. The Solar Diet is the best to keep Yang at an optimum level. If you must eat meat, eat good quality meat. Venison, buffalo and elk are very good. Never eat beef, dog, goose, or Koi carp – they are associated to the four basic virtues: filial piety, kindness, loyalty and devotion. Humans must learn from these animals and keep this kind of quality. You must cultivate virtue; must engage in virtue.
  16. Are there any other leftists here? πŸ‘€

    The happiest people I have ever met have no hospitals, no roads, no police, no fire department, no indoor plumbing, no electricity and no phones among other things developed countries are all about. Some would consider these people very poor but on the contrary they are very rich in spirit and the community is beautiful and happy with no crime. I have lived in a closed society not damaged by capitalist mentality and consumerism. The people have no use for what is for sale instead they provide for themselves, food, tools, clothes and shelter. Governments hate this ability of the people and need to make people dependent on a government for survival. Nature provides us with everything we need.

    It's just a jump to the left and a step to the right, put your hands on your hips.
  18. Men Explain Things to Me

    Just part of the previous joke If women explain things it is because someone is missing something and should know better. so women explaining to men where their missing things are. I now it was a bad joke, most times I bomb Where I am the only way to tell men and women apart is the hat or beard. Everyone dresses the same and there is no higher or lower order of the sexes. I am above no job and do not expect others to act that way
  19. Jing to Qi - a Technical Question

    If we teach non virtuous people we will have bad karma that would ruin our own lives, it against the rules of transmission. If we teach kindness, forgiveness, compassion then we have someone to teach. True virtue is not virtuous it happens with out thought or agenda it is just who we are without convention, true virtue. When we see creepy, gregarious and non-virtuous Daoist practitioners they obviously have no real skill and not able to be given transmission. Traditional lineages weed out the garden fast so those types of people can not be taught.
  20. Men Explain Things to Me

    That is all wonderful and everything BUT where did I put my keys? If there is difference there is also sameness as soon as we label something the opposite becomes apparent. If the mind makes gender judgment we only then see a sliver of the whole being. whole beings are more fun and not concerned with gender identification because we are energetic we all possess Yin and Yang energies and are whole....So what is the question?
  21. Proposed simplification of forums

    I am surprised there is not a martial art section...Tao of the fist. After all this is the broadsword (Dao) Bums. Sword play anyone? I enjoy walking on the seven stars as the fairy points the way. More Pie being mentioned is hilarious. Summer on TDB gotta love it. Conflict and struggle reign supreme at least nature is not conflicted or struggling itself over change.
  22. Open Invitation

  23. Men Explain Things to Me

    Maybe men explain things so they do not forget what the are explaining to themselves by saying it out loud, If women explain things it is because someone is missing something and should know better.
  24. Jing to Qi - a Technical Question

    The original human nature is kindness. Chinese spirituality talks of a physical being rather than an intellectual one. It literally refers to the Spirit in you and cultivating the physical health to the optimum level to nourish the invisible spiritual being. How do you sense and communicate with your own spirit? We may not be able to because our material life can block out our power to do so. Alchemy opens the door for communication and lets it fly out. It improves our compassion, forgiveness and mercy. There is an invisible super being inside us. Alchemy supplies nutrition to our spirits. Initially there are no visual signs but if we keep it up then the changes will show up. Never stop practicing. All this talk of yuan chi is missing the point of it all. compassion forgiveness mercy being a better person overall, In and beyond this physical plane, pure energy with and without form. These are some words from my teacher of the Dragon Gate long Men Pei of Mount Wudang. You have struck gold and silver is not good enough. Rara remember what you have learned on Wudang and do not deviate or let others mislead you. You are the best!
  25. Jing to Qi - a Technical Question

    All things in balance and harmony, the center of the compass, no movement the body is dead. So the marionette is dead or is it moved by spirit that benefits all things. No polarity is the center of the compass, we move from the center and the world is illuminated without beginning or end. Extreme shifts in polarity is called an unbalanced person or un- grounded or spacey person.
