Incoherent ramblings

Hi, "bums!"

 

I happened to sign in and have a PM asking for advice on drew's work. I'm going to post here as a kind of status report.

 

The last few months I've been staying in, at home in my bedroom, as much as possible in order that I might build my energy. Having said that I haven't been doing much in the way of serious practice at all other than sitting on my bed and doing the breathing with tongue against the roof of mouth and engaging the perineum.

 

Obviously I've done moving of yin and yang and some standing tai chi too. But nothing really serious which for me would mean really concentrating on qigong 24/7.

 

I realised a few months ago that the governing channel up the back was not properly open, really all the energy was at the front. During my kundalini awakening I was engaging the perineum, I know because during the awakening I remember thinking through the breathing technique I was employing so that I could remember what I was doing for future reference. At the time I hadn't read about any techniques other than a couple of forum posts and was really only trying out reverse breathing while reading a book without really thinking about it. 

 

So at the time I really thought that I'd screwed up, I had read people suggesting not to do the orbit but that is exactly what I did after feeling heat in pelvic region at the front of the body and had moved, or concentrated the energy, to the sacrum (which I was referring to as "the top of my ass" in my welcome post) a few times only for it to full back from a more point-like energy to  something more diffuse.

 

The idea that I'd consciously induced, by followed steps to bring on, an awakening was alien to me at the time even though I was somewhat familiar with descriptions and basic mechanics of the process -- energy going up the spine to the head -- as I was framing the experience in the context of my very limited understanding of the MCO.

 

So I actually believed I'd screwed up the orbit by having dream energy in head and fire in the pelvic region. Anyway, I've been over the experience before on the forum with my wifi being blown out by the energy and having a dull pain cross the navel the next day etc.

 

Few months later I did my first healing with my friend's leg being healed -- instant change of colour from purple to normal as I was pulling out energy and swelling going down as I projected qi into the leg, plus all the pain going away etc.

 

Okay so the top of my head opened up and started to fill the body with magnetic energy etc. I've covered  and gone over that stuff before.

 

So during the big breakthroughs, awakening, top head opening etc. I'd had the perineum engaged but then at other times I'd been focusing on the dan tien too much so that the breathing was too high.

 

So the above is "gospel according to Aletheia" that is in the free PDF as a major teaching. The perineum has got to be in the game as second nature for breathing really 24/7 I would guess?!??

 

So when I did start incorporating the governing vessel I properly began to feel energy going up the back, which as an experience escapes instrumental words because the energy is divine in nature. But the sacrum warms and the point opposite the navel on the back, I think it's called ming men?? that area is very magnetic so that on the in breath my t-shirt is sucked and attracted to that point while energy simultaneously radiates away from the area mainly traveling upward embracing the whole back but more so up the spinal zone.

 

I can write some more later. But another thing I noticed is everyone is affected by the qi energy. Just like cats go bananas for qi so do the females, just like drew says. My friend asked to get married :P but I had to explain that its the energy she's attracted to, not me.

 

Also I noticed that the energy will act on people's lower chakra as an unblocking destagnation device. Just like drew says!

 

Okay also as the channels fill inside the body they produce magnetic fields around and inside the body which interact, repel and attract, as you move about. So the other day I was cleaning my teeth and the action of my hand and arm were moving energy around in the dan tien like a synchronized dance. Plus if I put my hand in front of the body and move it up and down I feel the channels.

 

Just posting this without re-reading and fixing grammar etc.

 

Right also I see blue lights and drew says that's blueshift, or the Kantian epistemic spatialtemporal horizon imploding in on itself as the annihilation of time as we intuit it a priori as the pathos of distance! or what like I think of as making the jump to the speed of light!

You can word search this - type "root" - or similar words

 

But this teacher, who authored that book, was also a martial arts expert. So he just assumed that his students would have the standing active exercise as the foundation of the practice. As Foundations of Internal Alchemy emphasizes - first the yin qi energy has to be built up from the "bubbling springs" point at the center of the feet - and so it gathers then in the false tan tien.

 

So if we do any healing we are going to use up this energy.

 

The purification means that since yin qi has no substance - when we close our eyes and visualize light - we then take the yin qi lost from the eyes open and we use that yin qi to restore the generative force lost - the yang qi in the water.

 

But with the eyes open then the yang qi in the water is no longer purified and so gets lost as well.

 

So as Chunyi Lin says the mind is much more powerful than the body - but he is referring to the subconscious mind which is triggered at the speed of light with the eyes open.

 

thanks for sharing.

 

So at first as we begin building up the yin qi then we see lights with the eyes closed. but it is only after the generative force is restored that the false lower tan t'ien turns into the stove and then the middle tan t'ien is the cauldron - called the Zhong point of the body - and that is when the yuan qi manifests. So then we see yellow light externally and can see ghosts and begin immortal breathing.

 

So then that is the limit I got to - because after that you have to keep building up the yuan qi to then fully open the third eye. ONly after the third eye is fully open can the yuan qi then be restored - and so then the generative force can also be restored.

 

But I did open the ancestral cavity - but the generative force has to be restored to then open the mysterious gate again - which means the third eye fills with light and you see light externally - after the body opens up as yuan qi energy.

 

Quote

From the centre of the brain the channel of function (jen mo which has joined the tu mo in the brain) descends in the medulla oblongata to link with the hsuan ying cavity (the mysterious bridle behind the heavenly pool in the palate) which is connected by a fork with the upper jawbone where true vitality (see note 4 page 6) can (easily) find an outlet to disperse. Under the hsuan ying cavity is the throat by which the channel of function goes down in the pulmonary artery, the right ventricle of the heart, the hepatic artery under the diaphragm where is a cavity called chiang kung (or the solar plexus) which is under the heart, thence down to the cavity of vitality (or the lower tan t’ien below the navel) before reaching the testicles from which it returns to the cavity of mortality (at the root of the penis [censored]).

 

and

 

Quote

The (vital) breath circulates in the (network of) eight (main) psychic channels whose base is the mortal gate (sheng szu ch’iao at the root of the penis [censored]) which is linked to the brain above and the soles of the feet below.

 

and

Quote

This cavity of mortality (at the root of the penis [censored]) is the source from which (vital) breath circulates in all parts of the body. Therefore, each morning, after leaving your bed you should circulate this (vital) breath in all the eight psychic channels. This consists of stopping breathing through the nose and mouth in order to concentrate on the cavity of mortality as the point of departure (in the following ten phases of breathing):

 

So we know from Wim Hof and Dr. Shin Lin - that holding the breath after exhale activates the vagus nerve. This is what the book means by "stopping breathing" - so as to force the qi to circulate by holding the breath after exhale.

 

Quote

The left eye stands for the East whose element is wood and the right eye for the West whose element is metal.

O.k. I keep getting this turned around. haha.

 

So again this is the yin qi as the vagus nerve:
Quote

 


No, because the genital root dilates and vibrates in 
the state of thoughtlessness and unconsciousness; this is 
caused by vitality in the scrotum which stirs the testicles and 
widens the duct by which the generative fluid drains away. 
If you do not practise the tenth step (as described in this 
chapter) which consists of contracting the genital gate, you 
will be unaware of nocturnal emission which will continue and 
so nullify all previous progress; this is because of your 
carelessness.

 

 

 

 

 

So it has to be joined together with the yang qi to make the alchemical pill that is then stored....

 

Quote

Therefore, you should not confound the dilation and vibration of the genital root with the erection of the penis [censored] for they have nothing in common.

 

So my take on this is that the dilation is actually triggered by subconscious activation of the sympathetic nervous system via the kidney then connecting to the prostate gland. And once this subconscious trigger - at the speed of light - occurs - then unless it is fixed through standing active exercise - then the gate has already been dilated and so the vagus nerve yin qi will then flow out along with the yang qi.

 

Quote

The latter is like a ball of fire, the size of a bullet, in the lower tan t’ien centre which will become hot causing the root of the genital organ [censored] to vibrate and set prenatal vitality in motion.

 

and so the vagus nerve energy has to keep building up - without any sympathetic nervous system "trigger" occurring:

 

Quote

These are foretelling states pointing to the production of the macro- cosmic alchemical agent, and are followed by the withering of the root of lust (in the testicles [censored]) and the accompanying transmutation of generative force into full vitality. When the latter vibrates, it will crystallize into the immortal seed and only then can the genital organ [censored] shrink as in babyhood. This is the real retractile state when the penis [censored] shrinks back and will no longer stand erect, causing the generative gate to shut and so preventing vitality from draining away. The practiser will thus achieve immortality.

 

and so this is the development of the yang shen:

 

Quote

When the six sense organs vibrate, the immortal seed in the testicles [censored] will move to the mortal gate (at the root of the penis [censored) which is shut but will, however, pass through it to thrust upward to the heart where it is blocked in the ‘thrusting channel’ (ch’ung mo— see figure 8 on page 124) which is not open. It then moves down to enter the channel of control (tu mo) but the base of the spine is not open.

 

O.K. so the left eye is the liver as wood but also the sun as the yuan shen.

 

Quote

sun (the left eye or the male principle)

 

yuan shen is the positive spirit

 

Quote

left eye which stands for positive spirit

yes so that is when the generative force is full and so the third eye opens up as the mysterious gate:

 

Quote

You have said that the first six steps (Chapters 1 to 6) contribute to the full development of positive spirit as revealed by the light of vitality which is called the Mysterious Gate, positive spirit or original face.

 

And so cultivation of qi is "negative" as the Moon and only when it keeps building up is the positive spirit able to be seen by others, etc.

 

Quote

 


Cultivation of vitality is negative and of spirit is positive.

 When both the negative and the positive unite in one, the latter produces positive 
spirit which can manifest in bodily form visible to others, 
whereas negative spirit cannot manifest visibly.”

Thanks for the kind thoughts, Fa Xin!

 

Being coherently one with worldly things is saintly qigong/guru spiritual master with laser energy non-local quantum awareness. Something that's way beyond me!

 

Also I have 2 sets of old friends that use drugs. They're arty fringe types on the one hand to hopeless druggies on the other that I've been avoiding for various reasons. But this one guy had been calling me up for a few days wanting to meet up. So eventually I went to meet them last night and it turns out they wanted me to lend them some money.

 

I leant them some money and used some drugs for the first time in months. But I think that's it now, I don't think I'll see any of them again. So it seems I generally post here after using drugs when I'm incoherent and people probably get the wrong impression by thinking I use drugs all the time from my habit of posting here whilst a little stoned. But the fact is I hardly ever take drugs and really am at a point now where I'll actively JUST SAY NO!

 

I told my mum that I leant them some money and she totally lost it. I have loads of energy right now and think it was helping unblock her anger. All my friends were saying how loving and compassionate I am. My friend's GF was saying she had really strong feelings for me so I think they could all unconsciously feel the energy working on them.

 

I did put my hands out and projected some energy with the female and she could feel the energy. I have really strong magnetic fields coming out my palms right now with telekinesis abilities too.

 

I'm not meditating properly though. I have generally good emotions with channels in the body open, lots of qi energy and a good spiritual awareness, good diet etc. But my mediation along with levels of concentration are really not at the same level.

 

My meditation has really been off recently too, but I still have been gaining energy and transforming to a deeper consciousness all the same. I don't worry when things go astray, I was even browsed some porn for a few days. When you meditate properly, which as I mentioned I haven't been doing recently, then base instincts of the animal body with mundane sensual arousals pale into insignificance because of the blockages having been cleared during mediation.

 

I do very strongly agree with drew's celibacy as it bears out with my own personal experiences.

Thanks, drew. I got the book too, it's a good idea to have a searchable electronic copy too. I've got Foundations of Internal Alchemy to so I can go through them while also searching this site for commentary too with these types of searches -

 

site:thedaobums.com voisisyinyang yin qi as the vagus nerve

 

I'll keep going through it all and piecing it together, I've got loads of notes and bookmarks too. It's my hope that one day I'll be at a level where I can send you some energy. Although right now it's total fantasy, just have to see how it pans out.

 

What about you, are you going to get to qigong master level or what?

 

I downloaded this earlier today -

 

https://www.scribd.com/document/257996031/F-E-Peters-Greek-philosophical-terms-A-historical-lexicon-New-York-University-Press-1967-pdf

 

I think there's a better copy at b-ok.xyz though. Lots of good stuff in there.

 

Right now I'm going to get back into doing 2 hours of moving yin and yang a day to clear my blockages. And I haven't been healing people. As of right now that's perhaps the best bit of advice along with being in solitude to build up the energy which I learned from you.

 

Saw this too the other day -

 

https://socialecologies.wordpress.com/2018/04/12/the-void-that-moves/

 

I can write about what I think about that tomorrow. When my heads a little clearer

 

Thanks!

Okay, I haven't slept and am still a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic. However I made up my mind not to see any of those people again and instead really begin to take my alchemy seriously. I've never seen ghosts or even auras, at least not that I remember. Hopefully if I get serious I'll reach that level some day!

 

Anyway, I realised that the same professor that wrote about the invention of writing and the pre-literacy token system in ancient Sumer also wrote a book about anthropocentric art and the invention of tokens 10,000 years ago which is the same time-period as the "symbolic revolution." So if I'm right about that (I think I am just need to check quickly) then McLuhan's maxim the medium is the message probably fleshes out drew's writings on civilisation's madness.

 

According to McLuhan each medium is an extension of the body with its own inherent biases that transparently effect user's sensoriums, psychic lives, bodily experiences, understanding of space/time etc so that through use those biases actualise as media environments (culture and civilisation forms i.e. architecture, roads, cities, immutable laws, trading, mathematical systems etc) -- that is the message of the medium i.e. the environment of effects rather than the technology itself.

 

Each new medium goes around the old and has its own peculiar set of biases. With use that is when the old environment becomes "visible" as something to critique and wonder about (such as Plato's dislike for oral poet's seemingly not being able to think for themselves as individuals and why he ended up violently recoding their ways into abstract Idealism). All the while the new environment remains invisible through the law of proximity. 

 

That's why McLuhan used the analogue of a fish in water to explain media ecology "I don't know who discovered water, however it certainly wasn't a fish!"

 

It also explains why he said -

We drive into the future using only our rearview mirror

 

I uploaded something here for everyone to listen to giving an explanation -

 

https://instaud.io/238B

 

But, McLuhan, just like all other westerners, is in the dark about the ancient lunar shamanic lore which gets buried in the foundations of civilisations. I.e. McLuhan didn't know about qi energy. Only drew has worked that out. So really we could argue that drew's the greatest philosopher that ever lived.

 

Collective groan from the entire forum lol.

yes on the news recently someone equated the "medium" with escalations in wars. So the print newspapers was world war one, the radio was world war II and television was the cold war and so now "social media" is world war III. I don't know - maybe someone already made this correlation somewhere else. haha.

 

But I discovered a Western white lady wife of a professor - who was in China in the 1980s - and she was shocked that females in China were not allowed to initiate conversation with males and so the females were not supposed to make a sound unless spoken to first.

 

So we have to realize that this alchemy training relies on males having their own "space" and then also understanding the secrets of the training.

 

So as Taoist Yoga states - the most common error of the training is "evil fire" of the heart - which I explained recently based on the sympathetic nervous system "dilating" the root of mortality. We can double check this by word searching the Taoist Yoga book....

 

Quote

Answer When the eyes twinkle and the heart vibrates in sympathy, this is the ‘chief fire’ (chun huo), also called the heart’s fire. It is evil fire aroused by thoughts and should be avoided by the practiser. When the eyes see the opposite sex thereby giving rise to (evil) thoughts, the heart moves in sympathy and arouses the genital organ, if the practiser then tries to gather the alchemical agent, the impure generative fluid will produce an illusory agent. This illusory agent is likened to a football which, being kicked continuously

 

So because I had not studied the book properly - I made this "error" - or as Chunyi Lin told me:

 

Quote

It's great that you can give females bliss but your qi will always be weak as long as you keep doing so.

 

So...I still do this healing - because to get back to your original post - what I have found is that UNLESS I flex the lower magpie gate - then the qi will go out of the eyes into a person who needs it - be they tired (usually).

 

I had one funny incident at work - a new coworker had started. He had an office position. I had joked to him that unless you sweat you are not working - since I worked primarily the warehouse. But one time he came to the warehouse - and when we made eye contact I got strong internal tingling as my qi went into him. So I burst out in shock saying, "Why are you so tired?!" At first he didn't want to answer me - he was shocked that I would ask that. So I repeated the question. Finally he explained that he had spent the whole weekend building a garage. haha. OH yeah he was about 10 years younger than me .

 

Quote

this evil fire to scorch the testicles [censored] and so dilate the generative duct to drain the positive principle away.

 

Right - so again we know that the (censored) is the parasympathetic vagus nerve energy and so to "scorch" the (censored) is in my view this sympathetic nervous system lust activation that creates the subconscious trigger.

The shock of new media environments causes ontological uncertainty along with a general confusing of reality. McLuhan compared the situation to frontiersmen on a quest for a new identity which he said is always a violent affair.

 

https://instaud.io/23ct

 

WWIII was an information war fought at the speed-of-light with the last extension of man, the nervous system, involving espionage and surveillance. McLuhan says when a medium is pushed to its limit a reversal takes place, so information turns in misinformation.

I noticed that my mum doesn't react the same way as other females. If I offer my opinion on any subject she instantly becomes highly irritated, especially if what I say goes against something she heard on MSM lol.

 

The other day my friend came over with a couple and the female couldn't take her eyes off me. So I said to her if you feel something for me it's the qi you're reacting to not me, and before she could reply her BF said yes he knew what I was talking about. It was so funny!

 

 Actually the other day my eyes were shaking and I've felt the magnetic energy going out from them too, but only a couple of times.

Yes the Taoist Yoga book seems to describe the eye balls pulsating from the evil fire - stating that if the liver and kidney energy go out of the eyes as evil fire then your vision gets blurred. So the kidneys are the eye lids and the actual pupils and the liver is the iris and the lungs are the whites of the eyes.

 

I am still not good at holding my energy in. I just got my hair cut and then I got internal tingling as my qi went into the females in the shop. Oops. So Taoist YOga describes how the energy goes to the head and then leaks out of the 5 orifices - the mouth, eyes, nose - but that the main leakage is the mouth. So then the tongue has to be kept up against the roof of the mouth and to talk as little as possible.

 

But I feel kind of strange when people ask me questions and so I kind of ramble instead of not talking so much. Also if this "evil fire" is practiced as I did - then it basically rewires the brain so it easily reacts and loses the energy out of the skull more easily - because the less yang qi you have - then it doesn't hold the energy back down. The deep reverse breathing pulls the yin qi back down along with closing off the lower magpie.

Thanks, drew. I've decided I'm going to put some effort in over the next 6 months to increase how much time I meditate. I'd love to get up to 5/6 hours per meditation. Really celibate energy with the channels relatively open plus good amounts of numinous energy -- I ought to be chomping at the bit to get to it really.

 

Thanks for all the help, drew.

I realise I started this thread because someone asked me for some help in a PM and so far I haven't bothered to write anything. So, I'm sorry for being a dick and certainly tomorrow I'll write a little qigong 101. Hopefully it will be helpful to someone at least!

 

I'm still a bit all over the place from going ot the other day tbh.

 

Anyway, has anyone seen Blade Runner 2049? Here are some good articles and a podcast on the movie -
