Dr. Morris's Secret Smile & Breathing basic KAP 1 (Giri for the Tao Bumbs : ) )

Recommended Posts

bumping up my old post in hopes I'll get back into the groove.

 

 

So simple but yet one of the most powerful exercises there are for internal energy development. Dr. Morris told me once a Buddhist Monk said to him, "why are you teaching this process to beginners? We make them wait several years before we teach this."

Bump :-)

 

Good for getting all bodily cells to vibrate in harmony.

 

I find internally laughing continously is enough to keep that vibe going :-)

I was reading through this thread and noticed that this information is not included so I'm going to add it here for a bit of an extra boost to the secret smile. There are a few safety points Morris spoke of that can be useful when the energy becomes too intense or trapped in the head. 

1) The wellspring of life points on the bottom of the feet are used as a ground and can be used to shed excess energy. This point is also very useful for dealing with the 'fuzzy head feeling'  


2) The back of the knee can be used to hold energy. 

 

3) The meng mein, the point on the back opposite the Dan tien is used to send energy down, and is useful for preventing energy headaches or discomfort, use this point in conjunction with the wellspring of life to release excess energy. 

 

4) The Dantian two finger widths below the navel is used to store energy and after each meditation the energy should be brought back there, and rotated first clockwise then counter clockwise for men, and the reverse for women. 

 

***Spinning the energy in the dantian after the meditation is extremely important according to Morris, who suggests that it could be done 81 times because of the Buddhist magic 9x9.***

 

Initially this meditation can cause feelings of anger, agitation, depression, blockages in the heart and throat chakras, headaches and old problems rising up. This eventually passes, and must be endured, and is referred to as the 'way of endurance' 

 

 

I made a similar post to this in a different thread, but have updated and added a bit to it, and feel that it is very relevant information to this thread.

wow this tread appears to have become pretty dead, I'm re-reading pathnotes and really loving the story and narrative, feeling connected through Dr morris to his students. Are there any of his past students on here? I'd love to talk shop, being an avid martial artist and experimenting with the esoteric side myself. Plus it would be nice to know if the Doc's self description and some of his stories really hold up to other peoples experience of him.

It teaches one to manage personal energy, to connect with external energy, and then handle that energy when it responds to you.

 

Edit: P.S. Sorry! Looks like I was answering the wrong question from the wrong person.

why is this such a big deal

because i'm a curious guy, and always want to know more. plus i don't know anyone in person to connect to about this stuff.  maybe the question is why do you feel the need to question this as being a big deal?

I sometimes think of meditation as a reset switch.  Meditate for awhile and you end up relaxed, mind clear.  With the Secret Smile you end up mind, body and energy systems moving beyond 'reset' into positive mode.. feeling good; literally feeling relaxed, confident, laughingly happy, loving and with a bit of sexual energy.   As the doc said energy moves best through a happy body.  Working with internal energy can have pitfalls of falling into depression or paranoia.  This counter acts that.

 

I've gotten out of the habit but at my best I was doing it when ever I was in the washroom and doing it often, even an abbreviated version led to feeling positive and stronger.

Someone was talking about the Inner Smile practice and thought this is a powerful similar kind of practice.

Here is a discovery.  On youtube you can find some video's that have some of the audio's from Glenn Morris's Meditation Mastery course.  Not every audio is there, and the quality is about the same as the cassettes tapes that I had in the early 90's (late 80's?). 

 

Many of his most important ideas and meditations are there.   His system which evolved into KAP, is an interesting blend.  His attempt to create the Jeet Kun Do of enlightenment systems, combining the best elements of Chi Gung, chakra theory and esoteric martial arts; taking the best from many systems and leaving out cultural baggage.    He took a scientific approach using himself and students to experiment on.  Never liked the title of his book, but the stories and methods are fascinating in 'Pathnotes of a Ninja Grandmaster'. 

Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/user/HoshinRoshiRyu

Many of his teachings are in the form of guided meditations.  I highly recommend DaMos Cave exercise as well as the Secret Smile.  If those click you can start walking through the elemental doors that he has laid out. 

Here is the Secret Smile in his words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1pi0_ViC4k

 

 

If any one objects to this link, let me know and I'll get rid of it.   Hoshin Roshi Ryu I believe was the organization that Dr. Morris founded and on the site it says: Dedicated to the memory of Dr. Glenn Morris and the preservation of his art and system.  Thus I think its legit and very worthwhile.

 

 

never mind.  the link is kaput.

bump.  Just saw the youtube link I posted above is no longer functioning.  Still there are probably a few good youtubes on KAP and Doctor Morris's techniques, especially the Secret Smile.

The beauty of the secret smile is that it is adaptable to your own constitution.  It does not need to be done exactly as given in the instructions.  A simple conjuration of a loving memory combined with deep breathing can do wonders, so I would encourage you to not be deterred.  Make it your own.  Be creative.
