    • A Daily Practice for Somewhat Spiritual Noobs... (Last post by Rickie)
    • Just sit in a quiet place, let your mind become calm and clear, then observe what's going on in your mind, at some point you can direct your passive focus any way you want. Then things get really cool.
    • Are Jedi Against Deception (Last post by Goken)
    • This is a topic that I have been thinking about a lot recently. My original post for this was rather long and rambling, but I've been finding recently that less can be more when it comes to my forum posts :cheer: so I will make this brief...well...briefer. I do not like the idea of lying or deception in general. I believe that most lies, even if made with good intentions, are just going to make things worse in the end. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, as they say. I am of the thought that the ends do not justify the means. If I have to sacrifice my principles to achieve my goals then I need to re-examine either my goals or my principles. While I do not enjoy the idea of deceiving others there are times when I do so. I realize that the world is not black and white, also that it is a messy place and I can't expect to not get some mud on me. I treat deception like I treat a weapon. I know how to use it and I have it ready should it prove absolutely necessary, but if I could go my entire life without ever pulling that trigger I'd die a happy man. Small side note. On the first page Kitsu mentioned the Jedi Mind Trick. Interestingly, I disagree with it's use. I get why Obi-Wan used it in the first one, but feel like it'd be something that a Jedi would strive to never need to use. I can't imagine that depriving a living being of it's basic mental freedom would be something that a Jedi would do without much care or thought.
    • Where does our talents come from? (Last post by Kitsu Tails)
    • I also believe in Natural Talent. Natural Talent however does not equal "Perfect" and "Flawless" Talent. Just that the ability comes naturally to the person in question. Yes, you still have to work on advancing this natural talent. Yes, you still have to practice and train it to become better....but its naturally who you are and something that comes quickly and with minimal effort. I also beleive these natural talents can "Activate" if you different stages in your life. I was your everyday normal child with my scribbly art that made my parents have to pretend guess at what the heck it was I drew. But when I reached maturity and my ability to control my actions better kicked in. So to did my ability to do art. I still remember the day....Sitting around with a bunch of friends thinking I was going to have the worst drawing there only for a beautiful illustration of a horse to pop out of the pages. No training, no classes, no work. Just one day I knew how to naturally bring images out with pencil and paper. Not perfect, not professional...I have to work at that....but its something I can naturally do.

    • The Grateful Thread (Last post by Proteus)
    • I'm grateful for the people who not only tell me but show me what i mean to them by their presence in my life day to day, and for the courage they show of opening up to me and allowing me to open up to them, regardless of what may or may not come from it. It's a personal adventure that I feel is crucial to our journeys, and it gives each other all the more meaning when we take that leap and allow it to happen for us to grow.
    • Vegetarianism (Last post by Mareeka)
    • The soy granules I use are TVP (textured vegetable protein) which is purchased from health food stores. Mostly I use them for chile. Meat eaters have been amazed there was not meat. Since I do not digest nuts well, I get them in the diet in 2 ways: 1) grind them in a coffee type grinder which is reserved for nuts and mild herbs and spices. These I put direct in salads or make dressing with. Mostly, I use almond and walnut and sunflower seeds and flax. I keep the quantities small and sometimes I mix 2 together. 2) I soak them over night or half the day. I drain them. Sometimes I let them dry on a paper towel and eat them like that. The soaking removes a lot of flavor but not nutrients. Sometimes I put them in a smoothie. With small quantities the flavor is not discernable. The following link appears as vegan on the front page but that is not the draw for me.. What I like about it is: It has a very large data-base. Many of the recipes are created by the users and the quantities are small. Not much is lost if I try something new and I do not like it. It has a search engine that works. So, when I get tired of my X many recipes for a particular veggie . . I often go here.

    • The Reiki Thread :-) (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Quote: Start low, end high. I tend to breath in through nose only when their is obvious particulate or its really cold, otherwise I get better flow in through the mouth and adequate filtration through the moisture in the mouth, and out through the nose to retain moisture. Switch them both around in different configs depending on circumstance. Is it releted to Reiki? the original intent of the question was specifically during a reiki treatment but since its been asked i guess any good suggestions on breathwork are beneficial in general also id like to be clear with the responses so far - when people say "start low" are you meaning "belly breathin/use your diaphram" low or "draw from the center of the earth low"? that may seem like a silly question i have had great resluts from using the feeling that my feet and legs draw in from the earth with every inhalation similar to how a plant might draw water into itself from the ground and generally, i feellike i project outwards better either when i hold my breath or on exhalation I cannot speak for Khaos who used the same wording (prior to me), but I was just referring to normal breathing and so only meant diaphragm, draw into the belly sort of thing. I've always just used CV-6 气海 as a cauldron of energy to punctuate with breath... like a wind blowing into a room and mixing with a stream of incense to fill the space with smoke. I don't do Reiki so I cannot comment beyond that, but I do do various breathing exercises from the Doctrine/Yoga of Inner Heat, Tummo, Kundalini, whatever you'd like to call it!
