  1. Ma Wei Qi Bagua

    Hello. I am a long time member and a non frequent poster. It is great to be here and always love the upgrades and improvements over the years. Currently I am working on the connection between internal arts. Specifically Aikido and Bagua. Anyone interested in discussing the historical possibility of this?

  4. Hey everybody,

    We tend to use nicknames, and I chose mine as Leir. The “Fox” comes as an add-on, because I long developed a liking for the fox symbol and its dualistic characteristics. I’m from Brazil, and so, if you ever see me writing anything that doesn’t make much sense or comprehension, I forwardly apologize. English is a second language to me, and I still have a lot to learn. I stumbled into Taoism as a road for another path I was following in life: the pick-up. I used to try to be a pick-up artist, and while I was in this process, I realized how much controversy and pain I was creating – for my life and for people around me. It was only when I reached a group called “Attraction Institute,” that I started realizing the pick-up’s controversies to me. I readied one of their ebooks, which quoted one of the most profound quotes I’ve ever read, from Tao Te Ching: Success is as dangerous as failure, Hope is as hollow as fear What does it mean that success is as dangerous as failure? Whether you go up the ladder or down it, Your position is shaky When you stand with two feet on the ground, You will always keep your balance What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear? Hope and fear are both phantoms, That arise from thinking of the self. When you don’t see the self as the self, What do you have to fear? After that, I’ve grown particularly interested on Taoism. Since then, I browsed some subjects related to this path, like Feng Shui and Do-In (being the only ones that I really put into practice), and heard about I-Ching, Chi-Kung and various forms of Kung-Fu practices. I am also training Aikido, and both the philosophy and the techniques seem to relate a lot with Taoism, too. This forum seems to have lots of involvement with the other Taoism practices I’ve been in touch, so I believe I may find more people to discuss this subject, not to mention some “off-topic” practices I also find interesting (such as No-Fap for Jing energy and other benefits). Not to mention the fact that meeting other people that share similar loves gives a boost to it. I know few people that really enjoy this area. So, that’s it for an introduction, I think. The rest will come out with time. Peace,
