This resonates as true to me.daniel wrote: ↑Wed May 21, 2014 9:53 amIf I understand you correctly, that's a "jing thing." Good food and exercise builds jing, which is easily converted into qi bioenergy. Thinking and feeling (in the Jungian sense) convert qi to shen (kundalini). LoneBear's post on Artificial Intelligence on Antiquatis discussing the neocortex is an interesting connection; when you concentrate on a problem, you stimulate the neocortex and it produces high levels of energy, both electric, magnetic and bio--and it is located right at the top of the skull, where the crown chakra is.Lozion wrote:Interesting, since I've been back from Africa and started eating better and doing lapses, I've noticed a steady increase in Shen bio-energy that has good and bad side-effects. I feel great but I'm understanding that the lack of direction of this bioenergy I accumulate is giving me insomnia and very vivid dreams. I also have no partner right now so cant get release from the Kundalini side of things...
Agápē is the highest form of love. If one loves solely in this manner, yes they may not require a physical partner, but by definition their partner would be God or Spirit or the Universe or whatever their highest affection is towards. But since the nonphysical partner can provide "financial security" if one just asks for financial security, what if one desires a physical partner that has an understanding of agápē? So the relationship is based on God. A marriage between two people that know God's power. That would be like the highest outcome of love, with a capital L. It just reminds me of a quote from the movie The Departed:Shen manifests as agápē, which is normally associated with a "spiritual calling" or "life devoted to God" type of stuff. If you get rid of the religious connotations, agápē is essentially the physical expression of shen bioenergy under intelligent direction, which leads to the growth and expansion of consciousness--for yourself and everything around you. When that happens, you become connected to the Universe (rapport) and the Universe "helps out" through synchronicity and serendipity. Once you are in rapport with life, then you don't require partners (as you become internally balanced) and things just happen to keep moving along. You no longer worry about "financial security" or stuff like that, because it becomes unimportant, since the Universe is a far better provider than governments acting as surrogate parents. And I speak from experience, here.Lozion wrote:I'm also reflecting alot on where to focus that Shen. I feel divided, part of me is tired of the freelance game I'm in with its financial insecurity while I have a hard time seeing myself going back 'into the Matrix'. The path of Kheb shouldnt lead back to the herd...
No offense to those who are single, boys. I'm making a connection here.Ellerby wrote:Marriage is an important part of getting ahead. It lets people know you're not a homo. A married guy seems more stable. People see the ring, they think, "At least somebody can stand the son of a bitch."
Indeed. To cure a heart one must work from within. That's why amalgamation exercises are so important to releasing not just past trauma, but all of the unconscious connections and experiences tied to them.There is a very true saying by Lennier on Babylon 5, in the "Dust to Dust" episode, "A darkness in the heart cannot be cured by moving the body from one place to another." So you may want to investing what is going on, internally, before doing something, externally. And all that takes is some active imagination... if you were to remove all your chains and constraints of physical commitment, money, work, shelter, etc., and could do the ONE THING that you really love doing, what would it be?Lozion wrote:So contemplating a possible relocation to NY or SF 'in the Matrix' but surrounded by other free thinkers or maybe going back to Africa/SA (or Panama) back on the Path.
Just like how the digestion tips I started this post with are nothing new, it helps to have these points reinforced and solidified by people that have a functioning, reciprocal relationship with natural law and the universe, known as agápē. "Kheb" is like the house of the highest love. Built on relationships with the universe.That's one of the reasons for a physical place to Kheb, so that there are resources and others there to help people find the path that is right for them. This is nothing new... if you look at old, alchemical paintings, you'll see people walking around with blindfolds on (the caecus--the blind, or in Harry Potter words, muggles). So you need to get out of the dark.

I'm gonna point out some synchronicity to you all. The post that I'm replying to, at the bottom of page 1 of this thread, Illka responded to right afterward at 11:11 am -- the mark in clock time that represents twin souls reuniting and the dualistic parts in oneself uniting. In love, in agápē. (Also home of some of the amalgamation exercises I do almost everyday. For the better and with results.)
