    • Tai chi chuan for begginers (Last post by Sotunus)
    • A relatively good documentary on Tai Chi as a martial discipline, although it suffers the flaws of all such travel dairy type martial arts documentaries: [video] Do not expect too much in the way of technical learning, but it might open one's eyes up to more possibilities, and general principles. As a resource on Tai Chi Chuan; I have found the work of the late Joanna Zorya invaluable; www.martialtaichi.co.uk/index.html One can also find information on the disciplines of Baguazhang & Xingyiquan, which are excellent arts for developing a strong foundation for advanced Tai Chi combat principles. As an exercise alone, I favour simplifies Yang-style, as it is hard to go wrong with it compared to the more traditional styles and their longer forms. What I would say of video training, or potentially getting things wrong; every step on a path is a potential misstep, but every journey starts with a single step. Better to be making the journey, and learning, even against adversity, than it is to have never tried. Yes, finding a teacher would be best, but kudos for training, and making the effort, and good luck.

    • Chi? (Last post by steamboat28)
    • Quote: Is reiki, the same basic concept? Reiki (supposedly) means "universal ki." It's a strange concept unrelated to personal chi, as it claims not to involve any individual's chi, but rather some benevolent universal energy instead. Which is bollocks, from my educated opinion. As far as the OP goes, chi is present in nearly every single magickal, mystical, or spiritual practice in some degree. From numina to ruach to chi to ki to prana to animus to the extremely specific concepts of mana and tapu, you can find analogous concepts all over. As to how to use it? Develop it first. Then ask someone who does it. I'm sure there are plenty in this thread.
    • The lost years of Jesus (Last post by steamboat28)
    • Well, ultimately, it doesn't matter what we say. Hinduism, undoubtedly, lays claim to Him in some fashion anyhow, so we may as well just jump on their bandwagon. From "Jesus in Hinduism": Quote: I've an Indian friend who, when he was seven ,moved with his family from India to England, where he was enrolled at a new school. On his first day he was asked to speak to the class about a saint from his Hindu tradition. Enthusiastically he began to tell the story of the saint called Ishu, who was born in a cowshed, was visited by three holy men, performed many amazing miracles, walked on water and spoke a wonderful sermon on a mountain. Of course, he was telling the story of Christ. But he was bewildered to hear that the teacher laid claim to Ishu for herself and her friends and she let him know that this was her Lord and her story, not his. He was very upset about this, because Ishu's tale was his favourite story. ... Christ was different. He was radically different. He preached for three years and got killed for it. He gave everything. A friend betrayed him. We have all had some experience where someone we trust turns on us, but imagine how we would feel if a friend betrayed us to death! Does the word forgiveness spring to mind? Not in my case, but it comes a close second. In Hindu scripture it says that forgiveness is the principal quality of a civilised man, and civilisation is measured in terms of spiritual qualities rather than economic or scientific advancement. It's quite clear to me where Jesus hung his hat on that issue. ... Of course, Jesus didn't get away with this either, but he had the courage of His convictions. He spoke the truth, the absolute truth to a materialistic society and risked life and limb for His mission. I wonder how He might fare today with His uncompromising stand on hypocrites and whited sepulchres? For instance, if he was to visit Belfast he might have problems being heard unless He declared first if he were a Catholic or a Protestant Christian.

    • Your Cave of Evil (Last post by MrBruno)

    • Is avoiding certain food help you achieve better M... (Last post by MrBruno)
    • From what I have learned about Buddhism in Bushijin temple, you have to avoid anything that takes their concentration or change your perception. I will give examples: alcohol changes the perception, drugs also being hungry draws its concentration, overeating will cause discomfort that will take your concentration and so on. Personally when I meditate I make sure that all my physiological needs are well (all), I feed, brush my teeth, go to the bathroom, etc. In doing so I guarantee that nothing will hinder me or inwardly or outwardly.
    • Wary of old habits - confused (Last post by MrBruno)
    • I have also been a compulsive gambler and I have many friends who live video games.Previously he spent days without sleep, without seeing sunlight, without leaving my room. Over time this was going on. Everything in excess is bad, even things that we think are good; when I was a kid my mother taught me one thing; all we can draw a good lesson, so whenever I play video games or see a movie, I try to take something good, something to teach me and make me grow. Try to find a balance to all situations and always try to take a good lesson of all, you will realize that video games are more than just fun. I believe a good solution to eliminate bad habits and adopt other habits that are better and that you have fun at the same time, they make you happy. I changed a little bit of video games with a good book
    • Do you believe in psychic abilities and/or magic/k... (Last post by den385)
    • Short answer: yes Long answer: I believe in evolution and hard work through millions of years can make it happen. There is also progress which can boost it. I am contempt with just sensing the Force - the Living and the Unifying. Energy work has great self-hypnosis capabilities and is of great psychological help - both in internal work and in socialization. Controlling or altering the Force like in franchise - there is little need for that now other than for the lulz.
