  1. At the end of this summer, I decided to challenge myself not to go down with the flu or a cold over the next 12 months. It is a difficult challenge due to my current living conditions. I live in a crowded metropolitan city. I commute to work using a train and then the subway. It lasts 1.5 hours each way so I spend 3 hours per day commuting. During rush hour we get packed like sardines. Oh yes, I work at an office with poor ventilation. I have a stressful job. These are my living conditions Over the last few years, I made significant improvements to my eating habits, have taken a rigorous exercise regime, conditioned myself to taking cold showers and began energy practice. Still, I've been getting sick a few times each year due to what I believe the conditions I listed above. I used to accept it as an unavoidable fact of life. This season I willed myself not to get sick. I take 500mg vitamin C when I feel my defenses are weakened. I'm constantly exposed to the bug as there are many sick people on the train and in the office. Sometimes I visualize a shield of energy protecting my body when I'm on the train and people are sneezing and coughing. At other times, when I feel I have a slight fever, I hit the gym, break a sweat and do some weights to shake off the illness. Sometimes when I feel I'm on the verge of getting ill, I just literally shake down my body and focus my attention to warding off the illness. I'm happy to report I have fought it off so far. I think September and October are the hardest times due to change of season. Feel free to discuss. Any advice is appreciated
  2. Hello, newbie here.

    I am beginning a study of the "Tao Te Ching" and happily came across this site. My interest in Taoist Philosophy and the "Tao Te Ching" grew from an interest in "The Art of War, and (especially) my interest in the game of go (Wei Chi). I am happy to find this forum of other seekers, and look forward to getting to know you. In addition to Tao and the "Tau Te Ching", my interests are: The game of Go. The study of strategy (as a subject unto itself). "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu "The Book of Five Rings" by Musashi Pedagogy, teaching methods, communication of ideas... "Bloom's Taxonomy" as a method of facilitating communication of ideas the use of the above to facilitate learning and action I look forward to meeting you, and wish all of you well. --ptw--
