  1. The Magus of Seattle

    The book has been well edited and polished, and has been republished on Amazon. A Lineage of Dragons EDIT: Note the book has been republished with a new title and subtitle, which is linked in the new post at the end of this thread, the original title is still available. New title - The Magus of Seattle A Lineage of Dragons A story of a life journey from the mundane to the supra normal. A true story of Masters and Students of the Mystical Life Force Martial arts and beyond. THE MAGUS OF SEATTLE This book is about the mysterious chi kung master in Seattle who was Bruce Lee’s uncle and main kung fu teacher. It tells of the kind of qigong that this master used to become one of the most powerful, and of the amazing things experienced by the author, who was his long time apprentice. In China a powerful chi kung master is sometimes called a wizard. In addition there are a couple of prehistoric systems of chi kung in which the body of the master is animated by the spirit of a dragon, a real one from the spirit realm. This then makes them a wizard and a dragon at the same time. This book describes one of these systems, a most rare and most powerful kind of physical, emotional, and spiritual cultivation system.

  2. Does anyone know what "hero lights in one eye" would mean? According to legend, he had "Seven hero lights in one eye..." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CĂș_Chulainn With that Cu Chulainn flung the spear at him with its handle foremost, and it passed through his head and killed nine on the other side of him. ...three distinct heads of hair—brown at the base, blood-red in the middle, and a crown of golden yellow. This hair was settled strikingly into three coils on the cleft at the back of his head. Each long loose-flowing strand hung down in shining splendour over his shoulders, deep-gold and beautiful and fine as a thread of gold. A hundred neat red-gold curls shone darkly on his neck, and his head was covered with a hundred crimson threads matted with gems. He had four dimples in each cheek—yellow, green, crimson and blue—and seven bright pupils, eye-jewels, in each kingly eye. Each foot had seven toes and each hand seven fingers, the nails with the grip of a hawk's claw or a gryphon's clench. http://www.ancientpages.com/2017/08/07/morrigan-shape-shifting-phantom-queen-meeting-irish-hero-cuchulainn/ He attacks the army and kills hundreds, building walls of corpses. (Irish: Aided Con Culainn, also known as Brislech MĂłr Maige Muirthemne). Medb conspires with Lugaid, son of CĂș RoĂ­, Erc, son of Cairbre Nia Fer, and the sons of others CĂș Chulainn had killed, to draw him out to his death. His fate is sealed by his breaking of the geasa (taboos) upon him. CĂș Chulainn's geasa included a ban against eating dog meat, but in early Ireland there was a powerful general taboo against refusing hospitality, so when an old crone offers him a meal of dog meat, he has no choice to break his geis. In this way he is spiritually weakened for the fight ahead of him Lugaid has three magical spears made, and it is prophesied that a king will fall by each of them. With the first he kills CĂș Chulainn's charioteer LĂĄeg, king of chariot drivers. With the second he kills CĂș Chulainn's horse, Liath Macha, king of horses. With the third he hits CĂș Chulainn, mortally wounding him. CĂș Chulainn ties himself to a standing stone to die on his feet, facing his enemies. This stone is traditionally identified as Clochafarmore, located near Dundalk. Due to his ferocity even when so near death, it is only when a raven lands on his shoulder that his enemies believe he is dead. Lugaid approaches and cuts off his head, but as he does so the "hero-light" burns around CĂș Chulainn and his sword falls from his hand and cuts Lugaid's hand off. The light disappears only after his right hand, his sword arm, is cut from his body. Conall Cernach had sworn that if CĂș Chulainn died before him he would avenge him before sunset, and when he hears CĂș Chulainn is dead he pursues Lugaid. As Lugaid has lost a hand, Conall fights him with one hand tucked into his belt, but he only beats him after his horse takes a bite out of Lugaid's side.
  3. For the sake of this post, let's assume starting from (before) Lao Tzu, Buddha, Adi Shankara, other prophets..... to ... Ramana Maharishi...... to ............. today (those that say they are enlightened) and have a huge following, that give lecture, have written books or scriptures (were written later based on their teachings), are all enlightened. Now that we made that assumption, do all these enlightened masters agree on any one single thing? If so, what is it? Some say world is illusion and just like bubbles, some other say yeah it's illusion but there is one truth behind it, some say no it's no illusion, it is very real, there are many things, only this moment is true...... Pray to one God, many Gods, don't pray to God, Just be, accept, surrender, observe, live in the present, knock and it will be opened, be still and know who you are.... - we reincarnate, all is per karma, some don't agree or the karma or reincarnation topic is not even worth talking about..... - do practices, yoga, alchemy, do self enquiry -- don't do any of these, they are all useless. Many say there is no suffering after enlightenment. There is no unanimous agreement on this also. If the enlightenment is the same state that all of them attained, then how come they all don't agree on any single thing? If I ask this question, then I am told, "This state can not be described by words neither can it be taught to anyone." Then why did all of these people give lecture about enlightenment, or life. If none of them can describe or communicate it, what is the point of all these lectures, teachings and books?
