  1. Dark Night of the Soul

    Dark Night of the Soul An agonizing and liberating experience when one has come to the absolute limit of wilfulness with regard to a situation or situations. When no part of the tools one has used in the past is applicable. It is where the bag of tricks are at a dead end and one is confronted with non-doing. One is presented with a debasing of all positions, past views and exercised contrivances. A feeling of *nowhere to go* at a depth that depletes all grasping to mere folly but without complete release from the trappings of axiety about ones perceived predicament - though even the perception of that predicament is in question. A poisition from which one does not seek help from others for answers - where *answers* are not sought. A state where from one comes to put one foot in front of another and one walks in grace with wilfulness suspended - one step at a time in the present as a child.
  2. Greetings dear ones, I have a question regarding the "cavern under the heart" which is also known as Gao Hung. And this is simple: How to clear it? My most dominant energy center is that of my solar plexus in combination with my navel. It is active very frequently. In the beginning of most meditations, especially in the morning, I feel like my breath is stuck at my navel or inbetween my navel and my solar plexus. With propper breathing and letting go of old thought patterns it slowly releases and everything gets really soft. This hyper-activity is also the reason why I often can not meditate in the morning until late afternoon or best at night. Either it is really My Personal Energy Center that is active all the time or I simply feel the energy centers of everyone around my IN Myself and hence identifying with this feeling all the time. Rather loud neighborhood and family members, cars and so forth. I strive for clarity. I have days like today where I feel like my Chi is stuck at this particular region: Gao Hung, directly below the heart. This is also why I often feel my heart very rarely. Altho I am open towards other people and was honestly told by my master that I already have the majority of beneficial attributes of the heart center integrated in my very being. I am mostly just not feeling my heart and I want to, as a more profound anker-point and compass in my life. With what technique do I clear the Gao Hung, the "cavern under the heart"? Anyones constructive reply is most welcome and very much appreciated. Kind regards.
