Re: Sacred activism

..... It's unknown what the transformation will look like. I'm not focused on any result, nor do I think Andrew is. Seems to me a way of speaking about right action and initiatory forces afoot. To clarify, this does not imply indifference, Andrew speaks about this at the very end of the video. Also...

Re: Sacred activism

Thank you Rick. Nothing to forgive, it's gold. Andrew is a mystic and scholar. I spent time with him in the 90's in SFO in classes and workshops. Indeed, we are living in the dark ago of Kali. It's unknown what the transformation will look like. I'm not focused on any result, nor do I think Andrew i...

Re: meet the old masters now, before they're gone

No worries..... it's never too late to meet the masters. Dead or alive. Just don't try. do agree, there are fewer and fewer living. I was a newbie to Buddhism in about 1994 when I saw Dilgo Khyntse Rinpoche's picture on Surya Das altar. I did not know who he was. I felt the connection. He winked at ...

Re: Confessions of a Zen Zealot

Re: boring questions about losing weight

Calorie counting does not work in the end. Exercise is always good but not reliable for weight loss. Detox can eliminate toxins which are held in body fat. Stay away from all vegetable oils except olive oil, no bottled salad dressings, low carbs. Butter, coconut oil ok. 5-6 meals a day is a stress o...

Re: Korean War Over?

a rock and a hard place.... to tilt a bit... does the US expect Kim to give up his weapons and bluster with US military force in SKorea? and after what the US did to the country during the Korean War?

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

ps.... I nearly forgot to mention that I also experienced an expanded consciousness, before I was conceived. let that sink in. It was beginners luck, and I went on to explore the trauma.

Re: Have you tried Holotropic Breathwork?

Holotropic breathwork is generally associated with Stan Grof. There are other forms, incl the original Primal Therapy, Arthur Janov. I worked with an Australian psychiatrist focused on pre-parinatal work/original conditioning. He trained with Janov. (both dead) Yes, it will induce an experience. I f...

NYT has again produced a seriously biased article... just look

Re: Cayenne Tea

I used to do this regularly for a while. Then I forgot about it... so many remedies!

I did 2-3 oz water with 1/4 to 1 tea cayenne ... the quantity doesn't seem to matter for taste. I added a dab of butter or ghee and a little salt. yes, be aware if heat is ok for you.
