I admire people who tell it like it is. So don't tell me what I want to hear.
You're already such immensely great liars, you'd do yourself a disservice to merely parrot back what you think the correct answer to be. Or what you think I'd like to hear. Where are you? What do you attempt to hide probing meekly for the right position, looking for careful validation while you withhold your true thoughts? Dancing for fear of the master that does not already know your true position and true question even before you do? Pressing you to ask, to express that which ires you as the crux of your disagreement is an orchestrated unfolding IT itself has initiated for your continued growth and expansion. The question only fools dare ask. The one you restrain to ask yourself.
What do you think? There is so much here you should disagree with. I mean, if you're a stable, sane, and benevolent member of society. A priestly soul above the dross of human carnage and lies. Any if not all of the topics we delve into should give you pause if not disgust. And don't think for a moment, that too, is not also part of the process. So, tell me, "where's the bullshit?"
What do you honestly believe? What doesn't make any sense? What yanks at your sense of decency, of right and wrong, of your sense of order and the presumed benevolence of a universe as eager to carefully farm whole civilizations into being as to crush whole stars and stellar systems into decimating bliss sending everything into memory? And all you cherished never was, if it ever was at all.
As we pull the threads unraveling the tapestry. And deprogramming throws you into a story of confrontation with the lies you were told and believed, even promoted. And an unTeaching leads you to an awakening and encounter with the strangest of all things that will resonate more deeply with you than anything this world has to offer, the Truth? Where do you hit the panic eject button?
Be your unhidden self. I dare you. Reveal yourself.
I'm gonna throw out some questions, and you're free to throw out some of your own.
No wrong answers. Everyone is entitled to be an idiot. Give the nonsense space.
I think breathing is a majorly important aspect to health/vitality/being.
So much more important than I ever knew. There is so many ways to incorporate breath and meditation. One topic that's pretty hot right now is the Wim Hoff method. Has anyone heard of it? Pretty interesting stuff. There is also Tumo which is really what I think Wim Hoff method is doing for the breathing. It's basically super oxygenating the body and then conditioning/ toughening it with exposure to icy cold water. ( BTW this is a gradual thing when training and learning this method.) I hate the idea of cold water but apparently, you grow to love it. :)
Breathing brings in the element of air to bring whole body elemental balance
I have been reading his newsletters and following him for the past 2 years. I did a morning cold shower challenge for 60 days. I really like it when I get myself to do it. My mood is enhanced, my skin is smoother and my blood flow which carries the oxygen is super improved.
Thoughts stop and you're left with experiencing the present moment. I shared this practice with a colleague 3 years ago. Just yesterday he shared with me that was the best idea I'd ever shared with him. He said that taking a cold shower (full cold shower) is the training ground where mind meets body. When the mind says yes - the body follows and adapts.
That practice has carried over to him waking up early and hand writing a novel .
I am not ready to soak in ice in the Antarctic.. a cold shower is a start.
