Hello everyone!

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

I honestly don't know how to start this thread, since my brain is a little overloaded with new information.

When I was searching for Yin cultivation methods I was directed to this forum and I'm happy that I found out about it.


I'm a person who thinks a lot about life and philosophy. I read through the bible, the Koran, the torah and other miscellaneous books and topics about religion.

I'm not a religious person, but this is only something I found out for myself after researching it.

After thinking about the state of the world, the composition of the universe and the composition of every being I lost myself for a while. I was confined in the thought of being a small insignificant existence in a giant universe which might be infinitely big.

I believe in karma. I treat others however I want to be treated, since everything bad and good will come back to you.

I believe in foundations of energy. Everything exists as mass and energy.

After reading about stuff regarding the energy and body, I found the closely related matter of Cultivation, Yin and Yang energy and Qi.

Extreme yin births yang and extreme yang births yin.

Through this phrase I got hooked on the premise of wanting to cultivate extreme Yin.

I am at the very beginning and don't know much about cultivation of inner energies.

Yang stands usually for many aspects of life, movement, energy, growth, life, warmth, day, the sun.

While Yin stands for rest, relaxing, death, cold, night, the moon.

Since in today's society people lose sight of their female yin energy and concentrate more on their yang, it leads to a lot of problems.

I am sure there are many more meanings to yin and yang and I am happy to find out much more about it.

Also, sorry for the long introduction, I am a little overtaxed at the moment so I hope after a good nights rest I'll have a clear head to read through more discussions, texts and informations!

I'm happy to join you guys.

Yes, it is easy to feel insignificant when considering the whole.

Proper rest, nutrition and acceptance are useful I have found, on my search for finding and maintaining peace.
