""What's to be Covered?""
It's my intention to create a brief(hahahaha) informative series of write-ups in order to detail the experiences, systems and knowledge required for cultivation of your awareness(The basics to general occultism). To cultivate oneself is to wash, perfect and refine the core of awareness which is within our body. This is a daily task that develops and progresses slowly. We learn to focus the mind, strengthen the breath and develop the body. Cultivation is putting yourself into unnatural, manmade conditions with focused and engineered exercises in order to develop and push your natural potential. We strive to go against heavens law through understanding of the universal principles. Through this, great trial and results come about. Declare yourself as God and prove it.
It is up to you to take these words and learn through your own life experiences. I'll share the methods and exercises which I've found most efficient. Be patient, diligent and balanced in all that you do as understanding and results come with time. Reality is as it seems so don't let the simple and basic ideas be overshadowed and neglected. Each new season and year you will gain perspective which shows a new layer to life.
Know that I'm handing you a loaded gun. If the pendulum swings you'll end up strangling yourself with your own power. The only difference between a saint and demon is the separation you give it. It's up to you to figure out how to fix yourself and to adjust it to your own gender, body, race and other varying factors. Some of you are more in body and need the mental aids while the others are up in the clouds and need a dose of reality. The only other help you'll get is for the time when I'm answering questions, otherwise you're on your own. You need to fix your own problems and figure life out by yourself. Even I don't have the whole picture yet(that's why I've held off on giving this out for so long). But if you're dedicated and feel that cultivation and becoming an immortal is your own path then you'll find great value in these words. As long as you keep the golden rule of balance and patience in mind then you'll be fine. There's always a nice sunny day after a long monsoon

Within your naval is an energetic centre which is hugged by two diaphragms. The lower diaphragm is our power, it is within our hips, genitals and lower naval. The upper is control and sits below the lungs or sternum and fills up the mid torso area. These are known as dans(lower dan tien, middle dan tien) and also have relating chakras(sacral and root for lower, heart for upper and solar plexus for core). The major functions of the lower area are legs, elimination, procreation, stabilization and digestion(redigesting of the earth and water). Functions of the upper half are arms to articulate, breathing, heart rate and the digestion/cleaning functions of certain organs. Within the core is our connection to the present moment. The kidneys act as a bridge which balances the upper and lower parts of the body (think hexagram). Our aim is to cultivate this area as our major centre of awareness. Meaning that all actions be them physical or non will be performed here. Though eventually through developing this area, the entire body follows and will become a singular unit.
Think of the times when you've lost or slipped in consciousness. Possibly an emotion had the better of you, a jolt of the physical body through harsh frequency or even forgetting an idea. When our connection to the core is cut of through improper movements, blockages of the body or mental conflicts to name a few, we lose connection to the present moment. The stronger your connection, the higher a frequency you can operate at. Each sense will clear, your moves become sharper and move pronounced and abilities to grasp and interact with reality accelerate. Clean energy creates an efficient circuit.
An undivided attention and whole body awareness is a perfect state of enlightenment. Each breath we take is a cycle of the body. Perfect breathing leads to perfection in all things through a refined awareness. Returning to our core allows us to have the strength (lower body) and control (upper body) to do this. Through breathing, we may diagnose blockages/damage within the body which stop our awareness from accessing certain areas or that try to grip and restrict our awareness in others. From this explanation you may soon find that mental and physical issues are both abnormalities or imperfections within the bodies cycle. Creating an inability to experience life with all of its fullness, all angles and perspectives.
The awareness is a word I am using to describe what you may know as Chi, Prana or consciousness. Other descriptive words I've found are that of voltage, focus, will or charge. Do not think, but feel. What is it that you sense? do you smell? do you hear? Just be within the moment and allow life to exist and pass as it wishes. Who are you? Look beyond your room, your body, your thoughts or ideas. Who's reading this? If I tell you to place awareness within your hand, what is actually in your hand? Is it physical or mental? It is the is-ness of everything.
You are awareness(Condensed mind/spirit). It exists beyond time, beyond person, place or thing. It just is. Everything is made from awareness like a universal clay. Different objects have different densities, amounts and qualities of awareness. Your toaster may not be aware enough to have a conversation with you, but it can still perform automated tasks. From infinite chaotic potential to quantized and materialized matter is the spectrum of awareness. Reality exists between and within these. They dance and ripple from one side to the other, bringing us the experience we have. The mind creates the body and the body perpetuates the mind. They both exist in unison but are split through differentiation for sake of thought. Material reality is mental(spiritual) and mental reality is material(Lead is gold and gold is lead). If all things are awareness then a master of awareness has mastery over all things within the spectrum. All of life is a learning experience of this skill(Qi-gong). Look no further than yourself and your life, start to understand that everything is as it is. To know something outside is to know it inside. All things are important but only make sense once they are acknowledged within.

""Body's a Cycle"
The body is a condensed expression of your awareness(or that of your parents, guardians, teachers, etc). Every action creates a ripple, a scar or mark upon you which perpetuates. This means the exercises given are specifically designed to unify your fragmented (body parts, organs, circuits, archetypes or elements) self, to gather, purify and refine. Throughout our lives there are parts of our cycle (our body, our awareness, our mind - all the same thing) which go "offline", degrade, weaken or even become unconscious and then try to go against you. Think of your cycle as a colour wheel or system of statistics(chakras, 9 gates, 5 elements, dan tiens, 12 zodiac, GURPS Attributes). If we look at the body without ego we can see our own physical and mental problems. They may be poor concentration, lack of imagination, inability to speak or explain internal concepts, difficulty connecting with people, poor elimination, lack of sex drive, poor digestion, unstable grounding, difficulty in physical tasks, etc. We can have too much or too little of these qualities. Any mental issue has roots in the physical body and physical problems cause problems in the mind. Both express and perpetuate in the moment.
We want to look at the body as one whole being. Each part is a mirror, reflecting or expression of another, forming angles and patterns. The top is the bottom, the external limbs are the internal body. There's also circuits or paths throughout the body (like cables) which link qualities of the organs(elements) and other parts. The tendons, muscles, organs, skeleton, nervous system and others all link up in their allocated channel. One change ripples and spills out into all things. Don't think too hard over it or try to understand it all before it presents its self. A lot of this understanding comes through the cultivation process. Allow this to act as seeds for the coming exercises.
""Nature of Cycles""
Doing the right thing leads you to the wrong and doing the wrong leads you to the right. Jumping into cold water makes you warm up and jumping into warm makes you cool down. Asking a question creates a potential answer. Life is a process of rising and falling. You have a good day and then a bad. In this business we cultivate our awareness over the day and then lose it through the night. The main idea here is to be balanced in what you do(unless you know the cycle). You can't spend all day cultivating and get annoyed when you burn out and you can't spend all day trying to recover or heal. Cultivate for a purpose in life, to be better at what you love to do. The best way I've found to do things is in repeating cycles of work and rest. I find that it's more efficient to only do enough that you don't cause damage or damage which can be easily repaired. This means you're still fresh and strong for the rest of the day, allowing you to do as many revolutions of your activities as you need. Thus in your exercises I recommend you spread them throughout the day(or night) and only do as much as you're comfortable with (with time you can increase intervals and length). When you making a cup of tea, do some squats or pushups(insert any exercise). Find those little times throughout the day when you're not doing anything, maybe in transit, waiting or have breaks. 1,2 or even 3 minutes adds up. Longer sessions will allow you to push through walls.
You'll hit high states of supreme clarity. Amazing ideas, visions and experiences will happen. These seem to only last for a fleeting moment and the desire to re-reach the past state can make you overstay your welcome. If water never moves it starts to stagnate. Allow for rest or a change of actions.
Last thing to say here is that to understand life simply, all that you do in a day and think in the night become your life. Your body moulds into the tool to fit this lifestyle. You are between heavens law and earths pull.

""Keeping a flow""
Through cultivation practices you're going to gain a lot more energy. If this energy blocks or stagnates than it'll weigh you down, cause pain and make you feel more lethargic than before. It may feel like electric shocks, like dense matter stuck and will usually vibrate or resonate with environmental sounds/pressures. Hence why it's necessary to always keep a solid flow. Make sure you have both a mental and physical hobby to take up your time, a job, family or some education. You're going to have a lot more responsibility over yourself. Background noise/static is a common ground for excess energy that people use(This is why aum is used). Focus on your breath, do some exercise or start up a project. Make sure not to always keep your awareness hauled up in any one spot. Your focus is a like laser which will burn and fry anywhere it stays for too long. The best thing we can do with excess energy is flowing it downwards. Angling your body so that the posture is unobstructed, keeps the proper curves and having solid grounding.
We all have problems in life. These can be summed up as a singular consciousness problem. Each new season your problems may seem to fade and then reappear in different situations or areas. You can even use a kind of medicine to remedy it. The same issue of a new problem arises. Ultimately until you've mastered all of reality (yourself), you'll have to "suffer" or repay your debt. Track down reoccurring events in your life. The emotions which are common, health problems, mental and relationship issues, etc. These give an analogical view into your body, your cycle. Knowing one side of the coin can give you a look into the other. Generally in your body you will be too tense in one area and too loose or relaxed in another corresponding area. This could be the inner thigh and outer thigh for example or on the front core and back.
I'll throw in some info on meridians and why building equal form is necessary. Feel in between your most defined muscles. There should be an area in between the overlap which you can dig a finger into. The core contains tons of these once you achieve the geometrically sharp effect to your muscles. They're pretty much fault lines which are intersections of muscles. When using specific channels you're activating the muscles along them. You may notice strange defects like moles or spots along these lines. When the muscles are overloaded they'll re-route the energy back to your organs. That means if you're skipping parts of the body, others are excessively stressed. As we age many of these circuits close or stop working properly. Through training the body we un-"lock"(perfect etymology) them. That's how you know what "level" you're on in a manner of speaking. Generally the body develops from the inside to the outside. Take notice of how your core develops.
Inhaling brings awareness it inside and exhaling brings it out.
Stay balanced and centred as a rule of thumb.
Too much tension on a single angle/area will cause locking and stiffness(Think only using three fingers instead of 5).
Too much relaxation will cause loss of form and flaccidity.
Positive leads into negative, negative leads into positive.
You can only inhale as much as you've exhaled.
Balance the internal with the external and take notice of changing cycles.
Slow breathing for cold environments.
Keep dietary habits stable.
Act from the innermost naval area.
Learn to go beyond the threshold of discomfort. This is where real results happen and walls break. Don't burn yourself in the process of training though.
Tensing puts you in body and relaxing puts you in mind.
Exercise and breath meditation are methods of alchemizing your energetic charge(allowing for recovery or stimulation).
Wear a fundoshi (or light clothing) if you want your creativity back.
Extremes can create opposite reactions.
All colours are within black and white.
Khan 01/05/17 (Thu) 23:25:42 No. 88951 Breath
""Cultivating the Breath""
The area which we wish to initiate our breath from is focused within the naval. Our naval eventually becomes a "spiritual centre" which you may know as the solar plexus(Takes much time) that feels like a sphere or ball. Instead of thinking that you're breathing oxygen, keep the idea in mind that you're inhaling pressure and inflating the body like a balloon(Or that you're simple relaxing and opening everything up). Inhale slowly and subtly using the naval. Use the muscular functions of the diaphragms within the lower and upper naval to create internal pressures which form an air vacuum. Extend this breath for as long as you can. If you do this slowly, you will be able to inhale for as long as you want (10 seconds, 20, 30, etc into minutes). The little things are what turn regular breathing into internal cultivation. Visualize a circle around your waist and focus within to keep centred. Keep relaxed but with a light tension which spreads through the body to keep you from jolting back or loosing focus. Once you have inhaled for a sufficient time and feel the "inflating" or pressurizing effects, start to exhale. You may cause a jolt or whip back like sensation and suffer from shocks and little tension tremors while exhaling. Continue this for as long as you can (go a little beyond the comfort barrier). You may notice parts of your body reject and work against the exhale. These areas are faults in your internal cycle and will be worked out within time. To create proper exhaling pressure with the naval your lower diaphragm must be used (anus, perineum, lower naval area). Continue with a couple more. If you notice the body growing too tight, hot, tense and locked then your focus may be too low on the lower naval (burner or fire). If you're feeling too loose, spacey and ungrounded(Your upper naval may hurt), your focus may be on the upper naval (water). Form the body as a whole, eventually moving all of it to breath.
Cultivation of a longer, smoother, subtler inhale and exhale will allow for stronger internal muscles and greater mental capacity/ability. Feel free to experiment with the breath through doing quicker breathing(Like that which Wim Hof teachers). Key factors are to stay centred and keep all of your body moving with you. This makes the bodies "refresh rate" much more synchronized. Breathing is actually cultivating awareness. You're bringing aether(the world) or spirit(unmanifested matter) into your body. Finer the breath, purer the matter. Through you're currently like a balloon which will deflate as soon as air is put into it. So on the next exercise we learn to strengthen our walls and forge the body into a sturdy container.
To master this exercise you'll develop a breath which is unbroken. The inhale and exhale are combine into one and is completely smooth without shocks or stuttering. It is both strong and subtle, able to speed up and slow down. Key principles are to think of the body like an accordion. You're relaxing the body and tensing the body which creates a suction effect. With time you'll learn to feel the negatively charged or denser energies in your body which fall down to the root and feet/legs. Our goal is to breath enough that we flush out and purify this stagnate awareness but not too much that we cause a disrupting ripple.

""Reverse Naval Breathing"
(Only perform once you've condensed enough awareness within yourself, this means extended inhales to fill down to the root) An Incredibly important and potent breathing exercise. This one focuses on developing your internal muscles in order to allow more load or strain on your body. It's how we cultivate internal awareness and strength. With practice you will be able to use the naval as a pressure chamber and electrical ground for daily life. When you see people raising their "power level", "dragon" or "spirit", they are pressurizing themselves through this breath. Many if the past ideas discussed will apply to this breath. Keep balanced and centred. If you find yourself hunching forward too much then lower the tension and draw back your shoulder blades. We want to cultivation even and smooth pressure. This means lightly tensing and slowly building up as you warm and grow in awareness(each new breath). The key idea is conscious pressure or force. If you're going unconscious then you may be using too much (or too little if the body is going floppy). Use both lower and upper naval diaphragms together(find the space within and focus there). Think as if you're combining the tension/force of your lower body and the air or spirit of the upper body. Smash them together within the naval and keep both forces balanced. With warming up, practice and time you'll start to feel more areas of the internal body (this expressed externally through new muscles) allowing for a greater perspective(angles).
To perform the exercise you will begin centring yourself with a couple breaths. Choose a posture and hand position. You may also gaze at your nose for added internalization. For all exercises I recommend placing the tongue tip touching the back middle of the teeth, the upper and lower sides creating a suction like effect within the mouth like you're inflating the tongue and filling it. Inhale for around 2 seconds or 50%(this creates electrical buffer) using the naval while slowly pulling in and raising the tension level of your lower diaphragm (anus, perineum lower naval) and middle diaphragm (cough or pant to feel it). We start slow and raise the tension as we cross the 50% mark otherwise you may end up locked on one part of the body. You can continue the inhale while tensing and pushing your awareness down to the root. Extend the time as you improve. Make sure that when you exhale you don't cause a jolt or huge loss in awareness(This takes time to build strength in). At first you may feel more comfortable doing intervals of this breathing with regular breaths in between. This allows any excess build-up in the lower or upper naval to pass (notice when you're pulsating heavily).
Another way to imagine this exercise is that your lower naval is a burning orb, your very own energy refiner and trash compactor. The foods we eat, excess waste and anything else that goes into the body (sound, vibration, air, smells) is processed here. You're inhaling while compressing both of these walls or in a 360 degree spherical area. In doing so starting slowly and subtly will allow you to increase the amount at which the lower diaphragm/ energy ground can handle. The body naturally uses another location to ground excess energy until we train a proper one. This will be an area your awareness is unconsciously locating at. Go beyond the barrier of discomfort. Areas which are weak will feel uncomfortable. But learn to distinguish between damaging pain and discomfortable pain. If you use lighter force to build up there will be no problem. The lower dan can be thought of an endless void which we can compress as much as we wish. The more we compress the more charge or pressure is built. Hence why it's used to manage internal pressure, holding more tension to raise the voltage, drawing in excess negative energy(The heavy stiffness produced through exercise). The secrets of this area will be revealed in your own practice.
All power and control of the body originates in the breath. Stronger breathing muscles will help to build a more focused and refined mind/body as they fine tune your tensing and relaxing abilities. Fine some spare time throughout the day in order to recalibrate the breath. Training is best done either in the morning or at night before sleep. I recommend first doing extended inhales to build up awareness then perform compression to build up structure throughout the body. If compression is performed too soon you may feel discomfort in the less trained/aware areas.
Khan 01/05/17 (Thu) 23:27:22 No. 88953 Mind
While I've broken these exercises into categories(mind, body, breath), you'll combine them together through daily life as the awareness allows. The microcosmic orbit is a holistic exercise which aims at rebalancing the body and unblocking the channels in order to let us penetrate deeper into the body. It may look simple at first but it's a helpful exercise for breaking into the imagination to perform magic ritual. Anyway, as you perform this exercise you will eventually break through the first "layer" or "level" of internal cultivation. Slowly we unlock new circuits or paths in the body which allow for greater movement, thought, perspective and ability. Eventually you'll discover an entire network and world within your own body.
Begin by centring yourself through deep naval breathing. This starts the "fire" under the naval which keeps your awareness strong. After a couple breaths, draw the awareness from the naval to the front of the body. Take it down to the lower naval, genitals, perineum and anus. From the anus/tailbone you will start the back channel and go upwards from your lower back, upper back, through the neck into the head. The next waypoint is at our crown which starts the front channel. Keep drawing the awareness through the body to your face, neck, chest and back to the naval. You may want to re-centre at the naval with a breath or two. Use the previous experience in naval breathing to always anchor yourself with stability throughout the exercise. Feel free to go slowly and use as many breaths as you need to go through the body. Eventually with much practice you will only need 4 breaths and then an inhale for the back channel and exhale for the front. Keep the awareness as a mist or cloud which does not favour either the middle, left or right channel/side of the body. At first, keep the awareness around the spine belt (governing channel) area and keep from spreading out too far to the sides of the body. Look up the eight extraordinary vessels meridians. With each revolution as you feel ready, move outwards and gather more channels. You may feel areas which are stuck or blocked, either use more tension or more relaxation. Through a couple more cycles these start to ease up. They are blockages in your internal cycle. Start with around 3-5 and add or remove an extra each few days or when you feel necessary.
Through practicing this exercise you will gain mastery of mental awareness. Through using this in physical activity you can modify and "flavour" parts of yourself. An example is a stronger or more precise punch, enhanced defence. I'll cover this kind of stuff in another thread.

""Developing the Imagination""
Originally I did not intend to put any discussion or practice of magic as that's better made its own thread. Through I figure sharing methods of cultivating the imagination will keep on topic and give little ideas as to developing magical potential. Future threads which detail astrological cycles necessary for magic working may be created. Anyway, a familiar is what you might know as a thoughtform. Like an imaginary friend, being or creation. We play God through creation.
The characters in writing are sigils. You may notice how esoteric characters like those of older Mandarin look. We can create sigils or symbols to represent and express our familiars just how the sigil for moon is representing the idea of the moon. It's also customary to create a working system of designs for how your own familiars look. You may use geometrical shapes, natural objects such as minerals, animals or plants for example. Pick simple things which you can easily visualize as this will aid for the practices. These can be put on paper to create talismans, carved into objects and even given bodies through crafted dolls of dead or living matter (homunculus or spirit possession).
We want to start with simple symbols in our imagination. Sit, relax and cross your vision while looking in the middle or in front of you (focusing on middle of head). Close your eyes at first if you need. You may need to pretend this is happening on a white sheet of paper if the black void is difficult to create upon. Start to visualize the number 1. Do the 1 times tables up to 12. See 1x1=1, 1x2=2, 1x1=3, etc. At first you may only be able to see a single number/symbol and will probably read it out as you see it. Don't worry too much as chances are your imagination is still very unconscious. Once you start to work into double digits like 2x6=12, use more abstract visualization of that in long division. See two 6's, one above the other merging into a 12. Linear and cyclical visualization are the two methods (energy goes in a circle or line, combine them to make a spiral). Another exercise is to play with 2d geometry. The circle, triangle, rectangle and square. Move these shapes around in 2d and even 3d space. Merge them together, colour them in different colours and shades. Move onto 3d geometry. The cube, sphere, cone, prism and cylinder. Bounce them of each other, drop or throw them. After playing with basic shapes and symbols for a couple days, weeks or even months (the basics may take a long time, don't stress) you can move onto creating your own more complex forms. Pretend that you have an ink source and create your own forms. Namely and specifically that of symbols/sigils or simple familiars.
Eventually as you grow familiar with the basics it's time to start projecting the imagination upon reality. Practice with simple shapes, objects or animations at first. You may try to see the number 1 inside of plants when counting then and combine them together in front of yourself. The way we project our imagination is to bring the awareness above your physical eyes and into the brow while still looking. If your connection to the naval (present moment) is strong enough you'll be able to imagine something like a hologram while conscious and looking. With practice the imaginary vision merges with the physical. I recommend dedicating some time before sleeping while either doing meditations or laying down waiting for sleep to developing imagination. The imagination is your tool to create and experience. Some of my own examples are that I use it to pre-think and develop the science of many kinds of arts and to craft projects. Even this very thread had been taught up along with many others within the mind.

As you strengthen and challenge yourself, the old you lash out like an open wound . Whenever we get to a low energy state, devoid of awareness the past ingraining starts fighting for control. Be cautious around mental mediums like water, fire, wind, animals and people. These challenges come in the form of physical and mental actions like negative thoughts which pester you or uncontrollable physical urges. Understand and learn to differentiate yourself from these thoughts. Know that you have control of yourself and are allowed to choose who or what you are and what you will become. Though it is a long process to complete control so know how much you can push. To diagnose your own unconscious, sit in meditation. Sit for as long as you can as the body starts to reject and repel. Feelings of pain, discomfort, heaviness, burning, numbness or cold will arise. Feel links between these angles, as if threads connected them together. These parts will need to be remembered throughout all exercises as we are intending to "Exercise" them away. You'll find two major left and right cables which go down to the perineum to the top of the body. The one which hurts through endurance training is your weaker side. We aim to branch out and open up new circuits one by one. Hence, increasing awareness in the body. Think of this as your "level".
""Principles of Body""
At the capstone of our tower is the mind. This sits upon a firm foundation and mechanical creation of our body. It's a system of transportation cables which hold voltages that become more precise as they reach the external limbs. Truly the most intricate machine which nature has currently produced. It's our job to learn and develop this tool, to maintain it. Through knowledge of hollistic anatomy, of tension and relaxation, of major points and paths do we get a feel for it. We intend to forge the body into a singular unit. We seek to unify the mind - body connection through aligning our bodies "refresh rate". To make the pinkie tendon line as strong as the thumb. The back as strong as the front, etc. Your own body will be different to another persons. Find your strongest angle and weakest.
As awareness expands, so do the muscles of the body accumulate, the tendons thicken and bones develop. We aim for perfect form/posture. This allows for 100% conversion of energy which reduces all expenditure. Your body is like an electromagnetic pendulum. The main rule of thumb is to perform action from the naval and as awareness increases, take on and gather more parts of your body. Through time, more angles or sides of the body will unlock and become active. Keep the posture straight and strong just like that of a tree. Trees still flow and move in the wind but are always stable and grounded. As we develop the internal torso area so do the external limbs follow. Thus keeping conscious of the posture throughout your day will allow you to keep acquired fitness. This is holding your own weight as a cat does. Through daily training we thicken and develop the same channels which are used in previous meditations. A strong body supports a wise mind.
Always remember to warm up through stretches and light movement. Start slow and light at first as you build up like the rising sun, then warm down with light exercises or breathing. The key idea is not to harm and cause damage through excessive exercise of a single area but to spread work for maximum effect. Building up the body completely from scratch may take 5-10 years for those without a root and around 2-5 for those with one(As little as 1-2 years if you really know what to do and have the right influences). This is not a race or competition. Be like the bamboo who spends years building roots and foundation to later become truly invincible. I'll give fundamental principles in some exercises below and expect you to learn and apply these to all that you do. All exercises are good, find the ones you like that work for you and give you maximum benefit. Develop yourself from head to toe.

""Regain your Grounding""
Our lower body acts as a power generator. It's the beast within us. Warriors who're within their body are polarized to this areas. It also acts as an electric ground to pull the excess awareness and disperse it outside to the ground(bounce). This allows for us to use higher voltages - more tension within the body. The digestion system handles breaking down and burning the excess waste as the body is a self cleaning machine allowing you immunity from ballshit of life. The sexual organs regenerate and re-energize the body through producing water and the anus will ground excess blowback from all of the training we're going to do as well as stabilizing us. Life is both literal and metaphorical. To understand a part of your body and what it gives, put it in a story. If you lack grounding and a stable foundation in life, train the legs - root.
Standing meditation is our first and fundamental exercise. Having the ability to meditate in any position internally and influence externally is mastery of static posture.
This collection of articles is the best I've found for pictorial tai-chi fundamentals. Go over the zhan zhuang or standing meditation parts. The key concepts(You'll find they link for all exercises in this thread) for this are to keep aligned and straight. Expand awareness through the body starting from the naval. Keep awareness even/equal around the body(back, left, right, front side). Visualize a circle around the naval to help with this. Use naval to breath and keep the state of tensed relaxed to hold structure. Start with the legs fairly close together, no further than hip or shoulder length. This helps to evenly distribute the weight upon all 5 major circuits (5 toes, 5 fingers). Keep muscles of the body engaged and allow weight to ground down the legs. Be stable and light. Watch how a tree flows and emulate it. To activate the back, keep your shoulder blades and hips tucked back. This will help for feeling the back
The arm/hand position will control your flow of awareness. Higher up with elbows raised will train the arms while low elbows will focus on the legs(I recommend classic tree arm position to build good arms). With time you can either squat lower and lower or widen the hips and legs, reaching a horse stance(The ultimate external cultivation exercise!!). This exercise can replace classical meditation. You can perform microcosmic orbit or breathing in these stances as well as martial arts for example.
I recommend looking up information on horse stance(and shaolin stances) to get a good idea.
The two main types of exercises are static and rhythm. These can be done in a soft or hard style. Form and formless. We practice static forms in order to build muscle. It gives a foundation for our other practices in life. Your cultivation should support your life, work, family, etc. Our next exercise is one which may bring discomfort to the quick shooters of fringe. It is running, roadwork. Running puts our posture, structure and breathing to the test. It helps us to develop functional muscles and stamina or regenerative capabilities. I recommend as in all exercises to start small, light and only do as much as you can without causing heavy injury. Barefoot walking or running is good to conquer earth(take a month of walking before running in bare feet). Running can be performed as a light jog or with quick sprints and anything in between. One is better for stamina and the other is good for explosive power of the diaphragms. Work up to running in natural places like forests. The extra roots and foliage are great. It will help for when you go to learn light step with practice of balance. A long run in the morning prepares you for a bright day.

""A Grip on Life""
No matter how much internal force you cultivate. You'll need to learn how to channel it properly. Your body complexifies as it starts to reach the hands and feet. The muscles, pathways and bones are a series of electrical components to modulate, redirect and utilize the awareness energy we project through it. A strong grip is essential in any field or task. Good use of the hands will follow through in all of your life and allow you to turn mind into matter through craft. I also recommend learning to have basic control over your opposite hand(hand is your head, don't be half brained). Basic training of the opposite hand takes about a month. This opens up more possibilities into understanding the opposite side of reality. I never properly understood holistic - magical thought until I achieved a fair level of ambidexterity. Start using all 5 fingers in life as well. This is difficult and slow at first but will help to keep you conscious of your entire body. My philosophy is to make the left foots little toe as strong as the right thigh. Fingertip pushups are great to train both awareness and fingers.. Start against a vertical wall.
I recommend grabbing some bricks, jars, water jugs or anything reasonably heavy which you can grip with all 5 fingers. Preferably a circular shaped gripping area. Rings of metal work. Grip these objects and move the wrists around in circles while keeping stable and rooted. Increase the strength and grip. Farmers walks are a great grip exercise if you have weights. Train your grip just enough to be comfortable in life. Using martial arts weapons are a great way to train grip so go grab a broom and become a samurai!.
I recommend checking out a book by the name of "Convict Conditioning - Paul Wade". I saw a fellow fringe poster talk of it a while ago and found it to have one of the best list of calisthenics. So I don't have to go on too much about training programs or regimens of exercise I'll tell you to check it out. Pushups, pullups, handstands, bridges, leg raises and squats. It's fairly bread and butter. If you have weights go do some squats (goblet are good or front), deadlifts, bench press and probably the best which is a one arm snatch. Always balance weight work with other lighter work. They're can be great but too effective. Every medicine is a poison concepts. You'll figure out what you need within time. Train the body so you're able to use it from head to toe. Start with a balanced set of exercises and within time you'll figure out how to create your own when required. Horse stance with elbows raised is honestly good enough if you dedicate to it. You'll get variety from whatever other things you like to do.
Khan 01/05/17 (Thu) 23:30:10 No. 88958
I recommend learning martial arts. Tai-chi in particular is based on fundamental natural form for humans. Kung fu is fundamentals for all of these and will make more sense as you develop. These allow you to understand practical use of awareness energy. Boxing and muai thai are good for practical fighting skills. Taekwando for acrobatic kicks. Jiu-jitsu for grappling. JKD for understanding of the lance or spear "fa-jing", and wing-chun for its philosophies as well as bagua(spiral power). Each art has a piece of the puzzle and you'll learn functional movements to be used in daily life. I personally favour martial arts as I find they're what you'd think of as a fun exercise which builds a warrior spirit. These lead into other body arts like that of acrobatics and gymnastics. Both require an immense amount of body awareness and will aid in your life. Rule of thumb, learn everything you can and experiment with everything. Another necessary skill is balance. I recommend learning how to balance on one foot, the middle of the foot, while moving and sitting/standing on exercise balls. Run on edges and practice jumping on objects.
Using the awareness to perform tasks instead of what we think of as muscular functions is our ultimate goal. Qi-gong sets aim to teach this. To do this you must be in full control of each exercise. Perform it consciously and slowly to feel each part. Feel the channels from the tips of your toes and fingers which run through the body and have aligning muscles. This is how you build some of the less common muscles which are neglected. Eventually you gain a near infinite amount of stamina and ability since the muscles do not burn out or tear. We think of the body as being comprised of energy or subtle matter at this stage. Breath through each exercise and allow the breath to fill your body. Through relaxing we're able to tense. Through tensing we're able to relax just like turning a little to the opposite side first in a vehicle. There's truly an infinite amount of small tips I can give. But all of these will be found and understood intuitively as you practice and practice and practice(blood is currency). The best I can do is inspire you to put in the work, to forge your body into a true vessel of your will. If you truly wish to walk the path of a magician, you must be rock solid at the core in order to withstand the power you conjure.

Levels of Cultivation
Think of the body like a cube. Overlay an octagram (8 sided geometrical shape) on top of it to express corners. Now cut the body into 7 layers from top to bottom like a cake. Each of these 7 layers has 8(9 if we include the middle) angles. These 7 layers are what you may know of the chakras. The angles are front, back, left right, the 4 in between those and one in the middle(older systems use 12/13). Traditional cultivation would start at the root and work upwards as meditation sects start up and go down. To unlock one of these layers you must gain control of 8(9) angles. Hence there being what you'd think of 9 levels of each layer. That being 7(8/9 if we count the pre and final levels) levels in total. Most of us will look like wooden block puzzles due to the different lives we've had, climates, foods, gender, etc. This means your path will be different from another's, but the same. I recommend cultivation from the middle and then focusing down more than up. Through exercises you get to pick which area you cultivate. You can choose a single centre, multiple or all. Compare pullups to squats or visualization meditation to breath work. Each layer grants a different ability, those lower for physical skills and higher for mental. Overpolarizing will make you go crazy and run into problems. While much slower, holistic cultivation is suggested. I hypothesize there are more levels beyond this by repeating the process. Or that simply we increase already gained abilities.
The simplest words to summarize the process is that you're building up your anus (root) in order to sit and ground properly. The bladder (elixir field) in order to hold/produce alchemical liquid. The core for tendons. Breath to pump essence upwards. All in order to activate your natural senses and the two spiritual senses of your imagination and awareness as well as perfecting the body. All in all this makes you a complete being able to perform whatever you can imagine from mind to matter.
To understand life in a simple and practical way we could say that it is comprised of posture, breath and mind. Training these three fundamental factors develops the body, soul and spirit. Each revolution you have the choice of moving up, down or staying still. If your ultimate alignment is to rise then each step you fall will become one which you gain. The three basic exercises of horse stance, cyclical meditation and breath meditation are one which can take you as far as you wish.
Alchemy is the truest nature of reality. Transmute who you are to who you will.

An update to reverse naval breathing.
After hearing the idea of continuous tension I decided to try it and found it's a more optimal and advanced method.
After you've warmed yourself up and have awareness of the lower half, keep the tension or hold around your hip, naval and diaphragm areas even when exhaling. Feel as if you're compressing and expanding while keeping the entire ball/area tensed. This version takes much more strength and endurance so I recommend starting with lighter tension until you've worked up the correct breathing.

How can I purify my thoughts?
Ever since I tripped on a psychedelic recently I realized how immersed I was within my passions and other people's passions (like movies, music, etc) which isn't really recommended. I thought I was creating something great, but I felt the pendulum swing or whatever.
How can I stop my thoughts from being overwhelmed by these things which once were in my favor but now seem to cloud me like a shadow? Should I block my thoughts, breath, meditate and stop indulging in such things which might not be good for me? Or should I replace it by reading other, more important and pure things?
The problem is that I identifyied myself too much with these things the result being that many of my thoughts are not my own sometimes, and before I had a positive picture of it all, but since then my subconscious showed me all of the negative, and it is hard to handle.
Not sure if this is too hard to understand, any tips?
I havent read most of these posts, I will soon, but thought I'd ask this first.

Practice some sort of thought control meditation. Nothing you mentioned is wrong or nad, but it seems that you were not living in harmony with your higher self. Try to figure out why you do what you do, and if you don't like the why's then change the what's.
Although I say that nothing is wrong with being obsessed with what you mentioned, those are all forms of mind control. I don't know the source, some say it's jews, I'm not so sure. But it's not suprising you are experiencing dissonance; psychedelics can result in a temporary awakening to the mind matrix.

Love turns to hate as seasons follow fate.
Allow yourself to be. Do what you do and enjoy what you enjoy. Restriction creates stagnation. Instead replace, but only so much. Be balanced to be in both worlds.
Life is a cycle of time you might think. This cycle reflects our body and breath. Within both are vulnerabilities or ares which we've yet learned to control. As you grow more in touch with the trinity, you start to notice unfavourable or uneeded areas. Through knowing, you shine a light and have the chance to reprogram. Your inner darkness will take any form no matter where you are or what you shift around in your life. Target it at the source or the mind/body. Track your cycles, track the body, mind and breath. This process is done in small steps.

Pragmatic stuff about the physical side of things (qi gong and shit) is relatively easy to come by, but these Chinese niggas are obtuse as fuck when it comes to mental cultivation. At least Buddhist stuff is super simple. Those dudes just tell you to become aware of the breath, which can serve as a whole practice in and of itself.

Hahahah yeah that's pretty much how all this shit is eh. No matter where you go in the occult be it alchemy, magic or meditation. Then when you know what it is it's too simple that we'd take it for granted and start second guessing.
I've found that you always get an explanation to cultivation and even abilities in the chinese ones except they're in words which I can't seem to find good translations of. You figure this stuff out as you go so it does not matter.
I'll warn that if you go into the chinese/korean martial art section be prepared for overpowered main characters lol.
I've been reading Kengan Ashua recently. It shows violence in a beautiful way.
Anyway guys, a note on training. Everything stems from the basics. Focus, breath, ability to feel, to tense, to relax, to move. The basic exercises like pushups, squats and pullups are fundamental for building strength. With comfort you can start to do the variations of these like diamond pushups, archer pushups, squats in bear stance, cat stance, etc. Results are gradual and take time so make sure to get the form right. Eat enough and take adequate rest breaks in order to not go crazy from hypersensitivity. Follow the light cycles as well. Doing intense exercise in cold dark is not good unless you know how to balance it.
>What we're aiming here is perfect concentration in any posture or movement. I'm working on developing "dense" magic like that of controlling and creating actual elemental effects of temperature, light, sound, moisture, etc. For this you need strength and stability. Lots of it. People were much stronger back in the older times so we have a bit of catching up to do. With that said expressing the body physically is an art in of its self.

I've found that going through physical cultivation is more efficient. I recommend opening a path to the CV-1 point (conception vessel) first. Root level is bones and tendons. This is to find your grounding. Focus on this area until you can effectively use your glutes, are immune to fear and feel stable/calm at all times.
The next point to cultivate is the CV-4. In between the hips at a fairly low area. These points together allow for power generation in the body. Incredible amounts of power is needed for body arts style magic. Far beyond what we're used to in our era.
Once you can produce heat through a strike or cold energy with focus of the mind you're ready to perform body arts. I'll detail this later in further threads once the time is right.

At 2:30 there's a dude who draws electricity into himself and then is able to automatically set shit on fire and stuff because the electric current is flowing right out of him.
I guess it goes to show that you CAN project shit from your body, but the guy uses a plugged in television to draw in enough electricity. You think you could naturally build up that kind of power -draw it in from the environment or whatever- where you got straight up electricity shooting out of your fingers?
On that same note, we know the body produces electricity and shit, but nobody ever talks about harnessing that ability. What do fags think of the relationship between natural phenomena of the body and shit like chi.

Khan 03/24/17 (Fri) 23:25:05 No. 94984
This confirms a lot. The powers of qi-gong masters projecting large amounts of energy is the same effects as the guy who charges himself up. Only that with understanding of energy work can you direct, form and modulate it in certain ways in order to do body arts and magic. But as you can see these kinds of abilities take a lot of raw power.
Think of pain as little signals where your body wants you to focus on. Try not to do anything which aggravates the pain during daily life. Eating more and taking breaks/naps help.
For qi-gong exercises I recommend focusing on the tailbone and perineum area as this feeds all the higher centers. Other than that you can focus directly on the pain, trail back the path to your spine and focus on that area with utilization of slow, relaxed breathing. Keeping yourself grounded and focused on the root during daily life will put you on recovery mode.
I recommend this for most practitioners who still need to rebuild their body and regain their "original qi".
Khan 03/24/17 (Fri) 23:33:19 No. 94985

I feel like my father when I become more grounded/secure/strong/stable. Is this normal? And when I feel… social? Creative? Emotionally aware? I feel like my mother more. I'm self-aware so it's kind of jarring sometimes. Jing is inherited, so by drawing from my dna and ancient roots am I deepening my wellspring of inherited energy? Like, knowledge and skills and experiences and energy are locked in my dna and just need to be expressed and unlocked in order to gain a nuclear bomb level of positive gain? And I need to "go with the flow" when I start acting like someone I usually don't identify as "me", like my parents, grandparents, ancient Germans and Celts?

That's a good way to put it. At different levels mentally and physically we definitely come from our parents, ancestors or guardians depending on who acted as your masculine and feminine figure at times in life. This even goes further when you get into understanding Gods or archetypes within us(invoking or working with forces). The entire world is within waiting to unfold.

Khan 03/25/17 (Sat) 04:40:52 No. 95001
I'd suggest having them as an internal mask that you can pull out and wear whenever needed. Take the pieces you find useful into your own self and scrap the rest as to not be controlled or ruled by their past will. Ponder over qualities you wish to keep and categorize them into a key word, name, symbol or idea for each person.
Think of archetypes like underlying themes of characters. The motherly figure is an archetype, the heroic young male figure, the wise older sage, etc. They're skeletal outlines of human characteristic potentiality.
Best way to understand them is to look at characters in stories and see how they're similar across different story.

Brilliant thanks for your help! I can feel almost instantaneous help from this when connecting to it in a normal state.
I have grounding, a root, and can help others connect to their own. But I can't do it consciously. How would you go about teaching someone to ground themself consciously for both a mundane (say a young kid you live across the street from, a quick and simple axiomatic seed), and for an adult who agnowledges and respects your ability to guide them?
Khan 03/26/17 (Sun) 23:46:08 No. 95098
To reiterate on a post I made a couple days ago talking about accupoints. Your dan tien is the CV 6 point
http://www.acupuncture-points.org/conception-vessel-6.html for reference. Notice how it feels less dense, hollow compared to other organs and areas. It becomes a major centre of gravity in the body when built.
Forming the dan tien is traditionally second level in ancient systems. Though it has been shown as first level because in these systems of nei gong you'd already have cultivated a lot of physical strength(It all comes from martial arts). I've found it's most efficient to switch between CV-4 and 6 while keeping an eye on 4 to make sure it stays open as it acts like a bridge. If you gather too much "qi" or awareness it'll fall out like a bucket with a hole in it without the CV-1 point well cultivated. Cultivating the CV-1 point without enough qi creates a negative charge/damage in the body so balance them accordingly.
These points cause the lower abdominals to grow and tendons to form down into the perineum. They stabilize your body giving you a proper ground to absorb excess blowback from everyday life. Also giving you a perfect, conscious cyclical breath.
Keep those three accupoints in mind. All the others in between will activate along with them or with minor aid.
Last thing is to use tension when you have excess energy and relaxation when you're lacking. Pain on left side of body means you need to relax and right side means to tense I've found.
If I were teaching someone either young or outside of fringe (people who don't know technical words and precise details) I'd tell them to always be aware of their feet and imagine their body being rooted into the earth like a tree. Simple method but effective. Another is the tailbone point down. Telling someone casually "Oh yeah just be aware of your anus, you'll become resistant to life" needs to be sugar coated a little lol. You can repeat the sensation or visualization whenever needed.

Aight here's a few notes from lastnight.
Exercise, cultivation and almost anything is a slow progress. Artificially force a springtime or golden age in order to speed it up. This means replicating the warm and moist temperature, using adequate foods and wines to recover, getting enough rest and breaks.
We're forcing the body to go through a second puberty in a way or an accelerated adulthood by nourishing the kidney circuit,
Next is a note on energy. There was a good video explaining modulative synthesis a little while ago. Volume, wavelength and pitch. Pitch is like tension and relaxation. Start learning to build "volume", how powerful the energy is. Don't tense harder or relax further. Instead increase how much energy is radiating like water pressure. The best way I can describe it is increasing focus and flow.
Relax and everything becomes fluid and mental. Tense to densify it. Exploring the energetic anatomy can be done through relaxing.
Being able to choose your state at any time means control of your own life. Everything exerts pressure on you. Become strong enough to harmonize with it instead of being swept up and cast aside.

Hey Khan, What's your opinion on anapana and nine-bottled breaths?
Khan 03/29/17 (Wed) 07:25:05 No. 95197
The dan tiens are centres of gravity. Makes me ponder how gravity and qi are related.
Think of them like anchor points which energy naturally gathers to and stores at. You then use the grounding gained to channel into your work.
Inhale while coming down and exhale upwards microcosmic orbit is earth polarized.
Left hand on top of right and left leg on top of right is earth polarized padma/mudra.
Polarizing to heaven will bring you close to dao or nothing which is everything allowing you to imagine whatever you want. Polarizing to earth densifies the already present. Imagine then bring down and create. Relax, tense.
Think of dan tiens like gates which lock out that level of experience. Gate to the body is the lower dan. Think of what the lower chakras represent. Finance, regeneration, stability, health.
That's a great video as it's made me remember a lot of experiences. I appreciate that.
I've come across apnapana or what I read as khumbaka I believe during my times in the highest stages of meditation. I found the technique is naturally known and found once you're at the stage to use it.
Our breath creates ripples in the sea we call air or atmosphere. We push out thoughts through breath(it's a pump and the mind is the satelite dish). Uneeded breath creates uneeded thoughts. Breath retention creates an intense rush of qi or awareness. I believe the body creates or absorbs this naturally and through halting thought you don't expend excess. This builds up and starts to open your circuits. First the left and right and eventually the middle(I believe eventually the other meridians open after these). It's the purest form of sustaining yourself on your own self. You're merging the internal yin/yang of the breath.
This is a more advanced exercise as it requires a fair bit of internal stability and strength. You can also reach an exact state comparable to dmt if you do it long enough (continuous inhales/exhales for 30-60 seconds do it as well).
It can be "too good" of a technique that we take it for granted lol. Though like all techniques it needs to be cycled with others to gain maximum exposure.

Hidden within fiction is a myriad of ancient teachings.
"Spiritual Root (灵根 línggēn) – the root of life. Figuratively: the very foundation of one’s body and soul. Cultivation usually requires some minimum level of innate talent, so someone with bad luck or a poor bodily constitution may find it impossible to even take the first step. In some novels, the quality of a person’s Spiritual Root can be tested to determine if they have the talent needed to cultivate. Rare individuals may even have special Spiritual Roots which allow them to cultivate quickly or grant them other benefits."
Take note of the stages.
Qi condensing, foundation building, and core forming. I've found internal alchemy to mirror external.
Here's a meditation to try.
Sit with your left hand above the right with thumbs touching. Focus on the centre of gravity and stability within the naval. Find a balance between tension and relaxation.
I believe tension/relaxation to be the power of earth or the root. As if our awareness is coated by qualities through these gems of the body.
Next use the power of purification to make your awareness subtle and light. Intense like fire but stable and relaxed. I see this as the power of water. A richness or restriction of power(two poles in everything). Once you can understand how to do this you've unlocked a new "form" of qi flavouring.
Third step is to condense this balanced but radiating and well pressured awareness into a tiny ball. As small as you can, endlessly compress it in 360 degrees.
Cycle between building balance of tension-relaxation. Keeping enough fire or pressure burning and compressing within the centre of gravity.
Too much of anything will burn you out. Too little freezes you.
Endure the discomfort in your hips and you will breakthrough to new levels.
You may start to feel the lines within your body as they open up.

Doing the wrong thing leads you to the right and vica verca hahaha. I seem to have defaulted and completed the cycle I go through. There's an exercise in the ominous book of wisdom or knowledge which talks about aligning the three stars/ dans. This is an excellent exercise and the book would be good if it spoke in english.
Here's a cultivation meditation which is balanced. Simply focus on the absolute middle of the body. this is under the sternum where a ravine of flesh in between the rips is. Under the heart and a fair bit above the naval. If you do it right you can link and notice the star within the hips and head. These are analogical zones. If you wish you can expand awareness and absorb the extra zones around these areas. I've found the dans have 3 levels. For the lower it's your perineum/root of genitals area for 1, what I believe is the bladder within hips/waist for 2 and lower naval centre of gravity area for 3.
If you're doing lower cultivation be aware of excess pressure and energy within the waist. If this happens focus on the middle star area. You can also cultivate force there. It wont be as dense as the lower areas though.
A note on the last post made on increasing force. I'll call this phenomena soul force. Focus on an area of the body, build a strong sense of awareness and then amplify it as if it were radiating with light or fire. This is a quality of your awareness energy. There are more qualities like focus, movement(expansion contraction or forming into shapes), tension relaxation, etc. I believe these all correspond with certain areas of the body. Through internal work we're learning how to use the force within ourself. If you wish to practice externalizing this do it with martial arts weapons, pens or even opening objects or doing tasks with a fork lol. Feel the weight of your object and form a link with it. Try to tense the object, relax it, expand soul force into it and pressurize it.

I've been reading Red Storm, thank you. So… you post a lot of stuff, but is a linear way the best, or a "spherical" approach? One at a time or a grouping at a time? Work out each individually, keeping them separate, then integrate later or.. focus on breath in the naval when doing horse stance whilst trying to practice what you learn from "tree meditation" to spread your weight properly type stuff on day 1?
[READ THE TL;DR AT THE BOTTOM FIRST]
I need a prescription… a resolution, a diagnosis, the medicine, for my personal constitution:
I have a very strong fire and wood element, with a slightly low earth, zip nada metal, and quite low water in virtue of my birth conditions. Masculine approaches (balls deep every time) work extremely well for me, which can be… too well. Half measures, normalcy, busy work…. these are things I have struggled to cultivate for my whole life and though I have succeeded in becoming human (vs being a mutant), I would like to do better than that and have balls deep self-control/structure/awareness, so I can balls deep everything else without troubles. In this I have somewhat succeeded, but need more of it.
I can be quite logical as a modus operandi, like, greek philosopher type stuff or just plain pain in the ass logical, went to math club for 2 years in high school, completed Calculus senior year with an A I think (should have been past Calc but Sophmore year had math 1st period and that shit is just way too early to show up for), got a B in Physics in Senior year too (Should be an A but I refused to do HW on point of principle, in that I should be smart enough to not need HW…. also mostly didn't do in-class labs because lazy and uninterested). Programming is not in any way mysterious to me, and so on and so forth.
Thanks to a Buddhist grandmother I learned about self-awareness, internal cultivation, astral projection, psychics, ghosts (step grandfather was similar with a big library and quite the chess player) so I'm no stranger to the yin side of things. According to this Master Tsai website I am a yin water element (Black Rabbit) but have a shit ton of Yang. In the zodiac system as well, I am Cancer Sun Pisces Moon, also real watery. I do the very best by becoming a true disciple of a master craft, or, in other words, going balls deep.
So what I'm asking for is a linear progressions… manual? I want to focus on making as much progress as quick as possible. I have a clear "break-through" ability that allows me to overcome mental limitations very easily… as in, running exhausted one minute then sprinting infinitely the next. Feeling dumb and clouded on a problem then becoming 1000x more intelligent and capable the next, challenging the teacher. Anti-social and awkward one moment, life of the party or smooth interesting conversationalist the next. Bottom line I'm like a muscle car that needs to go top speed to keep the motor healthy. Otherwise I putter along. "God is dead. Life is meaningless" from inactivity one moment, "I AM GOD'S SOVEREIGN, WE MUST UNITE AS HUMAN BEINGS AND TRANSCEND OUR PETTY SQUABBLES. JOIN ME BROTHERS AND SISTERS" the next. I've been skirting this line for a long time, curious as to its existence, but I think it's time to just leave it behind.
TL;DR Give me your most hardcore training manual.

Cultivation can be approached in many ways. Working on a centre one by one, groups, forming lines through the meridians, outwards like a sphere, etc. Cyclical and linear.
After much research and development I've found the star which is within your absolute core to be the first and best to cultivate. Think of this as in between the naval and heart. Focus on it while performing breath retention. True qi-gong starts when the breath stops. From this point will radiate all of you. You can slowly expand awareness like a spherical field throughout the body and intensify the pressure.
Small tips are a hand mudra of right under left, thumbs connected. This is earth polarized. Seek to understand physical matter and materials at an experiential level. Nourish the body properly as this kind of work burns a lot of energy. Quick energy and slow are both valuable. Physical hobbies may aid you.
Limit training is the most brutal and stressful on the body. This is when we go beyond our abilities at all times. Though all of this puts a charge on the body which is to be payed back with medicine. If you wish for hardcore then push extremes. Meditation in hot or cold water, while balancing, with the use of external medicines. One technique is forcing yourself to meditate sitting for some period of sleep. Though be wary of cold when it gets beyond the skin.
You might feel like a rubber band which is stretched too thin or too loose. While pushing one direction might seem the obvious way in order to gain strength, I've found mixing up heavy and soft, slow and fast then combining them into one. Know yourself and how much you can push. Eventually after enough experience you will know what to do and how to move.
I'm also wood-fire polarized naturally. I find we're all drawn to internal cultivation.
Here's another personal favourite.

(Is wearing a trip bad etiquette outside of your own thread???)
Thank you very much. The Veritas manga says Metal is associated with Electricity. Since electricity is masculine energy, isn't Metal perhaps the most masculine? Trees are organic electrical conduits that form clouds I hear as well, which makes them masculine... but fire I don't know. The sun yes, produces solar lightning, but earthly fires I don't know.
I ask because I made this thread: >>95429
It is about an electric conduction, blood rushing, qi activating technique that I discovered in childhood, and am expanding on now. The worst part of intense energy is when there's no where for it to go, so you get depressed and your channels clog. This method is a good distraction when you have to be patient, and clears the channels very well (I think at least, still very early in practice). Mostly remembered this thanks to Veritas. Is this practice Metal polarized?
I think I have internal cold though. I suddenly get cold on and in my body when I try to generate heat, near or where I'm focusing. It seems I've been accommodating high levels of cold and yin energy. I think it'll be simple to raise the temperature though heh heh heh. Thought I had too much fire/wood, but I sort of have a " turn your weakness into strength" motto that may have gone a little extreme. I use to keep my room at 50 degrees, open window in the fall/winter with no heat on door shut. I've moved since then. Actually the cold may be focused in my brain, which is suppose to be yang. Damn son, I've been real off these past years. Just goes to show how ignorance and arrogance ruins a man.

Damn this is good chapter 1. Thanks.
I think I'm shifting to a greater amount of Metal, all I had to do was focus on compacting myself from the outward in and something is about to change. Makes me feel cold though, which leads me to believe that internalized cold is a relative thing. Temporary high cold keeps the fire down enough to switch to more Metal to balance everything out. It's a hard shift that's coming, not a soft one.
Khan 04/10/17 (Mon) 07:58:56 No. 95485
I see metal as a combination of both forces. Relaxing then tensing quickly like a lightning strike. Soft and bendable but strong and deflective. In the chinese system I see wood as the opposite of metal as water the opposite of fire.
You can check the 8 trigrams to see how they break the forces down further.
I'd say more on the theory but I think that it can cause misunderstandings. Eventually when yin becomes yang and vica verca it all becomes too cyclical to pin down. Best to "feel" and know that you already know. Then create theory from that as you see fit.
I enjoyed your thread. The idea of nervous system potential works well to word the "intensity" or "volume" phenomena and your meditation is a strongly charged trigger. I find this energy needs to be handled well. I keep conscious attention to see if I'm properly grounded and to make sure no area is locking up(feel the ground to butt or feet connection). Otherwise lower the volume/intensity.
Metal polarization comes with "flavouring" of the energy. You may see yourself being engulfed in fire to make it fire polarized or like earth. Your feeling body will understand these sensations and visualizations. This steps into the territory of body arts and magic.
Try to harmonize your body and environment, to balance them. I believe we can get internal cold from overexertion without a rest period. Cold attracts heat and vica verca. Be wary of how you open up the pores.
I went through a similar phase. I find we want to feel as though we can handle anything at our current level and can neglect the growthful force of balance. A little bit of something potentially yin can even have a positive effect.
Play with tension and relaxation but know that everything is a cycle and one force turns into another. Ponder angles/directions of the body, sensations and mindsets to understand the elements.
Lightning River !!pZ7DBMGMvM 04/10/17 (Mon) 16:40:56 No. 95490
Well having just had nightmares of evil spirits, after trying to turn more yin/cold, and contracting from the outside in, while a fear of "what if something gets in?" coming up (which I pushed aside), I think I'm going to pay attention to my childhood night terrors and past two years experience and say that I need to stop compressing myself outside in and going relaxation/yin mode.
Yang is the "immune system" right? Keeps shit out and gets rid of what's foreign to the body? Would explain all those cold flashes when trying to heat my body. Some things didn't want me to get rid of them.
Thanks for all the info, I think I have everything.

Maybe it was just my sub-conscious. I'm too yin either way, need to change things up.

Tips for finding the core star. Use your "breath exhale force" reflex. The thing which lets you tense the entire body for strikes in martial arts. This is the source or the soul.
In this kind of work we intake a lot of cold energy through physical damage of the exercise part or connecting with mental energies. Opening a portal which can yet be handled. Just try to take everything at the moment I find. Sometimes taking extra effort or time to make sure you're keeping balanced and stable goes a long way to evading future traps. I figure you can only do as much as you can.
Yeah yang or heat acts like a barrier and destroyer of anything dark and cold. Too much of it opens up hidden darkness within and causes discomfort though.
Khan 04/21/17 (Fri) 01:54:12 No. 96301
Okay so I think the qualities of elements linked to energy control goes like This
Earth - Tension/Relaxation
Water - Expansion/Contraction
Fire - Power, pressure, volume or Strength/Weakness
Air - Movement
Aether - Pitch or "Colour control"
Work on developing those to an intuitive level.
Here's some meditation ideas. Work to expand awareness into a pillar through your centre from root to crown. Once this is stable enough expand further into the external limbs. Fill up your body to the feet and hands. This is a good healing technique.
I've decided to put together an alchemical thread before writing more on magic. Being able to understand and create your own medicine is a valuable asset to this path. An understanding of matter and spirit through alchemy is what gives rise to inner knowledge of life.

I found a good explanation on differences in soft and hard qigong. This applies for all other forms of exercise that we can categorize into light and strenuous forms too. The soft of forms of qi-gong which use movement and meditation (internal movements) will clean out the body temporarily of undesired charge and problems. Hard form exercises like horse stance will grow bone in order to develop internal qi. This means you'll need less "cleanup" within the body as your bones and flesh will regulate temperature, humidity, etc. It's the idea of hardware and software.

Aight here's the months lesson/update.
As always everything goes in cycles. Time seems to repeat and the activities we do as well.
Firstly back to root discussion as we're right at the new lunar month. Focusing on your tailbone area and cultivating that is top priority in order to build stability emotionally, mentally and physically. It gives you the feeling of bliss and comfort. Once you've gained that you can start to move up higher. I've included a pdf which gives good descriptions of the "gates". Classic mopai reverse naval breathing is great once you've earned some physical grounding. Elsewise you're running of blood burning or life force conversion. Perform it while doing 3-4x more inhalation than exhalation. Breath is like a pressure gauge.
Lift up the lower diaphragm starting at your tailbone in order to keep it grounded then pack and push into the lower naval activating that lower back. This should all develop intense endurance and power, the courage and strength to stand up right without fear.
Master yourself and gain the will to push forward!
Oh no. Never underestimate the power of your beam katana.

Much appreciated. Some good ones in there.
Feels like I'm saving coin change to buy a plane ticket and time is getting slower like when we were kids hahah.
But in all honestly I'm nearing the first level of body conditioning(root level). All of this work coming together. It feels like a world of difference from the last month and so on. The patience, stability and calm which comes with it is beautiful. It's opened my eyes up to the earthly world.
How's your own progress coming along?
A little bit of each.
End game is freedom. Freedom to do anything. Become anything, do anything, own anything, use anything, experience anything. An endless path to infinity. In a cyclical way the endgame is now since there never will be an endgame if you want to get really philosophical.
Think of it this way. You'll need all centres to accomplish those goals. Any that you don't have will be outsourced to others who do.
Running a business for example is an incredibly stressful venture which needs patience and stability. You need to be able to talk to people and manage the flow of social events. Your energy must be unlimited and abundant. You must be innovative and imaginative, able to understand all audiences. You can outsource these or skip them but half hearted efforts give half arse results.
Immortality is mainly cultivated to give you enough time to complete your cultivation lol. Time consuming process.

Hey Khan, got another question for you. So I've been putting my mind on my lower body - tail bone, perineum, genitals- I make a triangle.
I feel a heat on my lower back. I sit down a lot, so my lower back has terrible posture. So I figure heat is good, like it's burning some bad juju up. I feel that it should be helping my posture, but it doesn't stabilize. It stays in burn mode. Secondly I realized the seat of my awareness is in my head, the back of the top of it. When I willed my awareness to my core/to the triangle, I felt healing MUCH faster than what had gone on from just switching around and trying to keep a stable triangle going. Couldn't hold it for very long, seconds at best. How could I keep it/bring it there? Just as simple as practice?
And I cannot hold my attention on the triangle for long at all. My awareness is thrown around sporadically.
-awareness in the imagination (I think is what I have), sporadic awareness shifting, bad lower back- All are probably symptoms of having been on my computer for hours every day for years. Recommend anything for a

If anyone has access to water facilities I recommend it. Swimming is a great exercise and saunas are great for internal training or even relaxing.
Think of this area like a burner. Apply the heat and take it off when it starts to boil. The root based practice is a kind of "controlled" burning of the body. Hence I've found it takes a while to build up stamina. Just like when you're running it takes time to build up both speed (power) and stamina.
By focusing we're lining up glass to form a laser. It builds a negative charge which you might think of as broken muscle in weight lifting. Build up the charge and then rest to allow it to fully integrate(elsewise you build up internal injuries).
Change your focus to the naval once things get too painful, heavy, etc. This area is the medicine centre.
Play it by season and influence as well. If you're in summer or spring then it'll be difficult to do a lot of work.
Attention will come with time. As the root develops your focus will. The area is also heavily negative so it's trying to push you outside and stop you from accessing it. With time your focus will be like that of when you were a child. As for posture, that'll come in time. Lower back is the first area to go once the body degrades after childhood. Patience is a true virtue for this. Good mental exercises are straightening the body by focusing in the naval and pulling the tailbone down and top of head up(this is from taichi). Feel a line between these. I also recommend building up to using an exercise ball or other backless chair for computer use as well as having correct height for the screen and interface tools. Though feel free to leisurely sit while outside of designated times or when rest is needed.
The stability will serve you well. 5 minutes of practice a day is better than an hour on one day and will be a gate to further expansion.
I'm sure with time you'll feel the subtle changes within your every day life. I like to change up my training routines and try out different activities to see my improvement.

Hey I've been pitching to Black and now I'm manipulating reality with my psychology and it's weird. I am facing fear after fear but it's all internal qi gong rather than external, which seems like something I've done my whole life. Being a wizard is the easiest thing in the world for me compared to becoming a warrior.
What could happen from extreme internal cultivation, magical ability, alchemy, aether/elemental power, with an underdeveloped external cultivation, ability, power, reflex?

Internal cultivation will be difficult but rewarding. It could either amplify some problems or fix them depending on how you go about it. I imagine you're currently like a spirit magnet. Bad phenomena happens at our negatively polarized angles (elemental problems like water leaks or house cracks for example).
Look to balance your internal and external work at around a 40-60% ratio(play it by the influences). They work of and help each other. Seek earthly experiences like food, handiwork, exploration for example to regain some grounding.
Truth is you'll have to play it by state. In some states laying down a circle of talismans or calling upon natural forces will do you good and then others call for eating a snack or resting. A final tips is finding some magnetic hematite to wear. It helps to calm and ground, to take away some of the unwanted psychic influences.

“Martial arts are divided into two major parts. First cultivate the martial path, and then grasp the principles to attain enlightenment. To cultivate the martial path is to cultivate the body. To enlighten oneself is to cultivate the soul. Master often said that the life was a boundless sea of bitterness. Cultivating was the path of traversing the waters. To cultivate the body was to build a boat that could cross the sea, and cultivating the soul was to create oars to move the boat.”
“If one does not cultivate the body, then the boat would not be steady or strong; a storm would easily capsize it. If one does not cultivate the soul, then their motivation and will would not be enough, and even if their predestined death was near, they would be unable to arrive at the distant shores.”
“But the cultivation of the body and the cultivation of the soul is the difference in transition from the houtian to the xiantian stage. Before houtian, the martial artist will cultivate the body, after xiantian, the martial artist will cultivate the soul.”
“After xiantian, cultivating the soul! As soon as Muyi heard this he was startled, and felt that he would faint. No wonder all these years which he had been practicing he had actually been unable to take that tiny step. He realized that he had been headed the wrong direction the entire time. He had not imagined the xiantian stage to be like this. He muttered, “And what is the meaning of xiantian?”
Lin Ming said, “Master once said that the answer lies in how a baby breathes in the womb. He said that ‘when humans are babies in the womb, they cannot breathe through their nose or mouth, but must depend on the mother to give them sustenance through their connection only. This is how they breathe. This is the characteristics of xiantian. After the human is born then they can breathe through the nose and mouth. This worldly air is filled with impurities that gradually accumulate. This is the characteristics of houtian. In the xiantian stage the soul enters a state of incomparable tranquility and peace. They body changes the way they interact with their surroundings and the soul becomes aware of the world and is able to communicate with nature, even being able to actuate the power of the heavens and earth with soul force. That is the true xiantian. But from houtian to xiantian one must cut off every root in order to pass through and return to the state of being in the womb.”
Quote from Martial world.

For reference Houtian means post natal (after birth or earthly) and xiantian meanings pre-natal or heavenly (before birth).
Think stem cells compared to any other cell which has been defined. The idea of achieving a state in between worlds is to gain that childlike elasticity.

I recommend for any training fans to grab a set of gymnastics rings. Hang em on a tree or a bar. You can use them for general exercises like dips, pullups and pushups for example but with the added benefit of having to handle your own weight. Helps greatly to develop the back and controlled strength ability.

work on breath, the longer you can hold the center the stronger and more stable you will be
you are experiencing the rhythm. the swing of the extreme, but also of control, do not lose your ego entirely but do not forget that it is a manufactured manifestation of will, not you or I or the ALL.
Work towards the center, your extreme and need for immediate understanding and evolution is also your greatest obstacle at this stage, as it has brought you here so quickly and your intuition has gifted you with the knowledge. But it has also made you lacking in patience and understanding of the process, and lent you to the extreme.

I've been pondering over them and running experiments here and there. I think they're natural energy conductors of different types/colours. kind of like organic, mineral computer parts.
They work best if in light or near a heat source (yourself can work), I think quartz is the best for "charging" as it's very pure and fluid in that it has no "type". I've had experiences where a quartz has given of electrical energy discharges when fed internal energy.
Though ultimately I think their uses are limited at our current stages of internal cultivation and will shine (in more ways than one) with further progression.

I've had a fair few synchronicities relating to quartz in the past month so I plan to pick one up from an occult shop, cleanse it and see what I can do with it. If it can store "occult" energy well, I'm wondering what experiments I can run with it.

Yo, I have a question.
I, on occasion, have periods of prolonged 'brain fog'. I'm irritable, can't concentrate, generally feel bad, and so on. I have noticed that these periods are brought about after certain behaviour. If I jerk off multiple times in day and spend the day overeating for example, I know I'm in for a week of brain fog.
So basically, I think this is linked to energy expenditure? I expel a bunch of energy jerking off and indulging in bad habits, and it takes at least a week to recuperate.
Now, of course I'm looking to change these habits, but in the meantime is there away to generate or to cultivate this energy, or to draw it in somehow and speed up to process of 'recovery'?
Because of course it's a bit of a negative feedback loop. You feel shitty, so you're more likely to indulge in shitty behaviour, which causes you to feel even more shitty, etc. It seems I can do nothing but wait, but this waiting can sometimes make it hard to get out of the loop of energy expenditure.

First of you would do well to get rid of the meme that is nofap. You can masturbate several times a day and be perfectly fine, especially if young. Of course you waste energy, but it's not the end of the world. STOP FEELING GUILTY ABOUT MASTURBATION.
As for the brain fog. Eating has a huge impact on that. Less sugar, less carbs. You could try ketogenic diet, or the ice man breathing technique.
If you are addicted to caffeine, that's a problem as well.
Exercise. Your body, properly cultivated, can generate enough energy for you to fap ten times a day like a filthy degenerate and still do good magic (I should know).
08/15/17 (Tue) 14:27:23 No. 104304
>You can masturbate several times a day and be perfectly fine
Well evidently not. If X consistently leads to Y, I think it's safe to draw some conclusions.
>STOP FEELING GUILTY ABOUT MASTURBATION.
I don't feel guilty in the slightest.
>Eating has a huge impact on that
The food itself seems to have no impact, it's the way I go about. If I tend to binge it tends to contribute to the brain fog.
I don't drink coffee or soda either, I don't caffeine is the problem.
I already exercise and it doesn't combat the problem.
All I can say is that brain fog is a consistent thing that happens to me, that seems to be primarily brought on by excessive masturbation, and once it happens nothing can be done but wait -almost as if I have to 'refill' my energy reserves. That's why I think it's linked to energy.
08/15/17 (Tue) 15:35:31 No. 104308
You have obviously made up your mind. I have never had problems with masturbation, that's why I think the problem may lie elsewhere. But by all means, suit yourself. Perhaps I'm unusually high energy :^). You'll have more spare energy for sure.
I'll tell you something. I used to be a fat fuck and was brain fogged all the time. Also smoked. If you are already lean or fit, at least look into keto or intermittent fasting. Those are not memes.

Can we get astrological planetary flags?
Know your cycles for when desire comes. Satisfy them just enough that you are not bothered by them but enough to keep the mind and body stable.
We continuously gain a resource which feels like fire or warmth within the body. I believe this is called testosterone or yang chi. It gives you strength of body and will, clear thought and a sense of weight - gravity. It builds up and the digestion is efficient, legs are strong and body is healthy but then it starts to agitate the body once too full and causes mental anguish. At that point you gain the desire to release it. You can build more of it through exercise especially that of calisthenics or weight training as well as foods which are heavy in protein or grains(Though they cause sluggishness and fatigue at first due to the digestion process).
Gaining this energy in meditation is done through reverse naval breathing while continuously tensing around the inner naval/core.
If you do get fogged out then taking a nap or a walk will help the body to process.
I'd recommend finding hobbies which you can expend this energy in. Physical hobbies give you hot energy and mental give cold.
Even passive hobbies may help.
Tell me if you need more help in matters.
I've found reducing carbs or doing fasting related activities can help people of warm, large, solid body types but can unground and weaken those of thinner, colder types.

An idea came to me regarding your problem while thinking about something else. Could it be an energy blockage?
Have you done shadow work? Perhaps some repressed emotions, traumas or complexes?

Alright, thanks. That's pretty helpful actually.
>Could it be an energy blockage?
Could it? I don't if an energy blockage could manifest 'cyclically' i.e. come about as major brain fog, and then go away in the span of a week, but I suppose that might be possible.
As for trauma's and complexes, I have struggled with depression and anxiety in the past and although that has largely cleared up -mostly because of meditation- I still feel a lot of emotional turmoil on occasion. Like a knot, or weight in my stomach area that's tense and feels like a combination of anxiety and sadness.
It's not a good thing obviously, but I don't know what to do about it. It something that sometimes comes up, and I just have to wait it out.

Energy blockages manifest as repression, traumas and complexes, or rather the inverse. Unresolved emotional stuff causes energy blockages (refer to a typical chart of what chakras "mean" for more info).
If you have a clogged pipe, it would cause problems cyclically, as the pipe clogs up to the point of not functioning and then you temporarily free up enough shit so that energy can flow again.

It is my understanding that you need to go from start to finish within falun gong once you decide to pick it up, before you can do any other practice. You can learn other things later, but you need to focus on only falun gong while you're practicing it. If you quit you'll have to start over next time, so keep going until enlightenment, otherwise you're wasting your efforts.

Those gay soy bois telling you to preserve your kidneys are just that: homoerectus soyboius. You don't need water, you need the wood and fire. Liver and heart. They literally call it liver. Besides that are the gallbladder and small intestines, but having any weak organs is baby tier shit. Heart and Liver are great transformers, but who has time for some organ shit?
Slow even keel shit isn't going to get you anywhere. The REAL deal is to go full yang all the time. Maximize speed and strength for POWER. Your low back hurt? Then do a full body isometrics like you're deadlifting 400 lbs and do some quick as possible jumping squats. The faster you can hit the bottom of the squat and jump up without your SI Joint exploding and creating a hole in your wall, the better. I don't even have to start naming body parts and telling you to stop being a bitch, because fuck you just do it.
When you age you slow down. You can't move as fast as possible in any direction from any point or during any movement. YOU LACK STYLE, YOU LACK GRACE, AND YOU HAVE A FUNNY FUCKING FACE.
Same with your gay boi brains and gay boi dreams. Occulto bullshido, if you have to take 3 years to figure something out that took someone else 3 seconds, you're brain dead. "Ahhh but it makes me deeeeeep" makes you a brain dead nigger.
When I play Go I play 2 seconds a move. That's how I got through 8 games with a high rank bot and figured out how to break the fucking bot. Someone asked me to repeat it and I did, making it two in a row. If you go quickly through a game you can ACTUALLY SEE FUCKING PATTERNS. Your brain starts to hurt as in SPRINTING vs WALKING 100 MI.

"oooOOOoOOOo but yin is mind!" yin is niggers and mental agony from the yangers is literally rewiring your mind and creating an environment for learning – BLOWN THE FUCK OUT OF THE WATER BY ACTUAL NEUROSCIENCE
When you agonize your lazy nigger mind starts to do something new for once in its crustaceous fucking life and your "Sea of Marrow", like bone, gets the hot fucking iron that imbues some real shit into it instead of limp dick whiny bitch shit. You think you're developing your bone when you're sitting on your ass all day? Do you think you're developing the marrow? Apply it to the brain now. Yang -> stem cells faggots.
You have the sentimentality of women for your neuro networks and pathways. Like they're your fucking children or something. You're just being lazy, cowardly, weak and deferential to your most passive fucking existent.
This occultii bulshitii is woman logic 100%. "oooh wisdom is a woman though!"
… No. It is emotion woman logic. Mental illness is from being a ghost in your own body, and cia niggers are depersonalized sympathetic neural networks (except when it's actually a contractor from an intelligence agency, but you aren't that important EITHER FUCKING WAY). "I am God and All!" is 100% self absorbed woman fucking logic. At least a man will call himself a beast or hunter or predator or something fucking REAL but women are so empty of all meaning and context that they have to blow it all up into neurotically narcissistic egocentric proportions. And apparently high estrogen men say this shit too! When a man says it from some high test situation, he doesn't actually believe it. When a woman or mentally ill man does… well let's they REAAAAALLY fucking believe it.
This has nothing to do with Khan's thread (except it has everything to fucking do with it) but the point is that body is >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> mind, because mind is only as good as the body. The body remembers movement patterns and old strengths and can quickly regain them, and so does the mind ONLY BECAUSE THE BODY CAN.
You anti-body negroes are infuriating in that you literally ruin people's lives by feeding their mental and physical illness. You keep them trapped and eventually they break and FUCK YOU FOR BEING TERRIBLE PEOPLE.
Go play a sport or something you dumb fucks. Workout. Eventually you'll become elastic (!!! big thing in the ole' chinese gong fu fuck you !!!). Look at Bruce Lee. BRUCE LEE. He shall be your guiding asian man. He is HONG KONGESE by the way. Hong Kongers hate China apparently, which makes sense since they get more rights and privileges that is deserving to a human being, rather than an insect like in China.
When Bruce Lee tells you to Be like water my friend! he is talking to other physically vigorous martial artists, and assume that people aren't so fucking retarded that they'll fester like a stagnant pond – of water! and justify their fetid existence with his quote. You see, he gives people the benefit of the doubt, and hasn't had the experience of brain dead retards as you'll find here on /fringe/ and other such occultic and new-age (you're all new age retards btw, love and light teehee!) bullshitists. Being water is about being elastic and adaptive. Yang is what is elastic and adaptive. In the Chinese system, water feeds wood, the beginning yang. Bruce Lee was more like a coiled spring and had muscles of steel. Be like BRUCE LEE my friend! He would read in a split, workout everyday, tell women to fuck off for even TOUCHING his pride and integrity. Bruce Lee was dope and would tell you to mcfucking die if you thought you would get a heart attack from GOING HARD AF on a run and probably in other situations too. If you're going to be a weak bitch and die, then die. Being extremely limited in every way is what yin is all about. Breaking limits is what yang is all about.

Of course yin qualities are important… but they're useless without yang. The literature on yin and yang, mind and body for chinese woowoo is pretty shit in my opinion. You see, the path is more yin than yang despite claims to the contrary. Balance and such is inherently passive and yin. This is the issue. I hear that many of these things are indo-european in origin even, though I can't verify that in the least. The point being that it may be heavily handed down knowledge without ANY innovation. Progressively, I will claim that alchemy is in fact YIN as is stated in THEIR OWN FUCKING SYSTEM.
Alchemy is considered Metal is considered slightly yin. Balance is Earth, is usually yin but sometimes tao, which I think is yin in itself. This makes wood and fire the only yang there is. I've only ever seen extreme yin attainments as the highest attainments; even when they say it's "pure yang" it's pure fucking yin. Sitting in one place and meditating or alchemizing is yin ffs. Don't mind fuck what's suppose to be a TOOL for UNDERSTANDING. WHAT USE IS THERE IN BUTCHERING TRUTH ???? Thinking about it, metal = white and if indo-europeans gave the asians their woowoo, it would make sense that it would be a woowoo of ALCHEMY. If you call that a synchronicity, kys. Basic logic would lead me to believe that the white man gave this alchemy shit to the asians and yet 1. Very little innovation occurred and 2. Fuck alchemy I'm already white.
I see no hardcore yang shit except in manga and anime. It's pretty sad to be honest. If training makes you weak temporarily, isn't it inherently balanced with yin to begin with? If you're a man then fucking think, act, and BE one instead of trying to turn your dick inside out like some sort of mentally ill fucking tranny. Fucking 'alchemy'. If the white man brought alchemy to the East, then let's look at white depictions of extreme masculinity. Some celtic, odinic beliefs perhaps? Even then they have gay 'alchemy' everywhere. Loki got impregnated by a horse ffs. Instead of looking for a bunch of yin shit to alchemize into a yang guiding light for manly attainment (spirituality is metal if I recall correctly), just go hardcore and DO instead of THINK and IMAGINE.
By the same system of alchemy, of the chinese woowoo, we know that Wood gives Metal PURPOSE and Fire gives Metal FUNCTION. To clarify, Metal requires wood and fire in order to make anything of the useless ore that is their existence. Considering this point, then developing more and more Metal as a white person is fucking retarded. Too much water rusts metal as well (water being most yin, and philosophical). In the end, the least retarded thing for a white person is to develop their Wood and Fire element – especially true for a man.
This is getting repetitive at this point. If any of you want to thinktank a yang attainment path then [Click Here! One Weird Trick For Dong Expansion!].

I recall a story of an older man, 50s I think, who worked on the sea his entire life. He's a captain at this point, and when there's a lot of work to be done he'll be there on the ship laboring as the greenhorns are. The difference between him and the younger men is that he can work 20 hours a day, performing hard physical labor, and sleep just 4 hours… for a month+ at a time. The young men can only work 12 - 14 hours before they drop.
