MARTIAL AND HEALING ARTS


Wing Chun

I practiced Wing Chun for a few years very fanatically, became strong in it, and still practice the first form whenever I feel physically weak.

One trial lesson of this permanently cured me of a mysterious Ischias-nerve ailment that several chiropractors, physiotherapists, masseurs, acupuncturists and other practitioners of medicin could not relieve for more than 10 minutes, during more than a year of seeing specialist after specialist. The sifu from whom I learned this had no idea of my condition. He simply taught me how to kick properly; how to release energy in accordance with my physical structure.

Real martial arts are equally healing arts, as they are designed to the inner, 'subtle' body, that probably translates closely to something like 'the nervous and endoctrine systems combined intelligently'.

Systema



I like this exercise, I sometimes practice this for a minute or so, seeking the point of greatest discomfort and trying to remain there and enjoy it - a very strange effect, deeply relaxing, afterwards.

Systema is based on Russian knowledge of the body, it's limits and possibilities - the Systema tradition claims it roots in the Samurai tradition, which can understood through comparing it to Aikido. The second half of the video below should make clear wherein that mutuality lies.

Shaolin

My first teacher - I got what I know from him from books, saw him in action on video only recently. A form like this is not a fighting art, it is activating the meridians of all the organs in a particular sequence. Look how he walks away - that's harmonized self-valuing.

1999, White Salmon, near Orchard Lane

"Ready? The lady asked. Ready, I said. She clicked. The computer froze. We waited a while. Only a little surprised she restarted it, and reopened the program. It has saved my document. She printed the picture. My aura was of a dark dirty red bordering on black. Six of my chakras were small vaguely pink dots. The one in the middle, my heart, was a very large white square. It was clear to me at that point that this was remarkable, but I chose to interpret it as a reflection of my power. I figured my heart must be rather potent to shut down the machine an leave such a... scar, crater... on the picture. What I sensed in the back of my mind was that this square could easily be read as a hole, a great emptiness, filled with only pain. A pain which has been strong enough to freeze the computer. I must still have that picture somewhere. Later that week, I fell asleep drunk in poison oak, and woke up with the right half of my face twice as large as the left half. Then I went home."

David Letterman goes Chironic on Ricky Gervais.

Haha. I was checking their astrology charts, if L's chiron was on something big for G. It is, 2 degrees from G's Neptune-Moon in Scorpioo, which feeds his Sun-Mercury conjunction, but then I noticed a lot of shared regions and even degrees, but I still wasn't satisfied to explain the absolute adoration on the part of Gervais, and the completely unorthodox expenditure of Letterman on his behalf. Then I saw that their Vesta's are conjunct in Taurus. This asteroid seems to be involved in just about anything to do with trust and endurance, of which comedians have to have a lot - Gervais appreciation for Letterman clearly goes to the depths of his soul. In any case, a cool astrology example.

Fixed Cross, I totally agree with your conclusions in your opening post. It is very important that we know how to manage our energy for both physical and mental reasons. I have no problem with calling this energy "Chi".

Good to hear it, Sisyphus. I value expertise in these matters. I see a vast future for these philosophies in the west, when we manage to translate them into fitting forms, so that we arent forced to become too obedient. Here is an artists rendering, an attempt at how I see the current stage of 'humanity's Chi'. I do not know if there is a term for this - the totality of current potential as it is structured - it is not quite the same as dharma, which is more karmic (value based) than energetic (power based). Right now I see the world attempt to takes a botched shape made out of pure compromise against a deeply fractured void, in which many humans are however beginning to see the possibility of making a harmonic field of potential out of it.




This thread is a good read.

   In my view of life we create the void, or more accurately, we discover it if we question the meaning of life. I call this question the last "why?" because it seems when all the other questions are asked and answered, this one will remain. There does not appear to be an answer in the usual sense to the last "why?"; thus the void, to me, is simply a missing answer. .

FC wrote:
And the rose is the missing answer to the question implicated by the void. No language, no formulation could be as meaningful an answer. Good for you that you've made the void white - a background welcoming a 'because' to the question suggested by it's emptiness.
Don't forget that there woud be no void if not as a backdrop to our substance.
Don't forget that 'why?' is only word, and words oftentimes suggest meaing where there is none. There may very well not be a real meaning to the last 'why', which, I hasten to add, has caused extruciating angst in me as well. I have now realized the question is only a consequence of the language we happen to be using, the very fact that the word 'why' exists.
The last why for me is; why why? And the answer, in the words of Andres, a friend of mine: "There is no why, there is only because!"

Politics wil  have to take on the shape of kung fu, or tai chi, or aikido, or any such battle; where the opposite forces are not by one another considered a swretched foes that need to be ertradicated, bu tas worthy adversaries that give one an opportunity to know and become oneself.

The Chinese have positioned themselves against the West in a stance that can only be met by 'kung fu' - by looking the other in the eyes,behind the eyes, into the place that looks into ones own eyes -
to merge the brains because one is confident of ones own integrity; the two-brained entity now will dance, as a pattern of combat, to decide its inner rank. The winner is always justified when courage is fully explicated into honest power.

The Chinese need the Americans to become worthy inward - they have been savage beyond reckoning - and the USA needs the East to become worthy outward, where they have been savage beyond reckoning - and what stands between these two mighty dragons is the greatest death-cult in human history.

It may very well me that we are coming into a thousand year war now, during which the process of warfare will be refined so as to finally become utterly graceful, like a Tai Chi battle, where the form is combat, but the content is the positive exchange of vigor.

My logical building block self-valuing can be translated to humanity as the combination of vigor and valor.
The two sides of the world-affirming body.
There is no self affirmation without world-affirmation; well there is, but it is called religion. It is the most unclean egoism there is, and its only good quality is the seed of its own destruction that it carries.

The West and the East must no longer obey the Middle East. We have our own superior paths - and the West is the best...but that only means its people, and that is only because it has absorbed people of the entire planet on the ancestral ground of what may have been the strongest being in the cosmos, the North American native type, pinnacled by the Comanches.

The USA is testing if it is ready to replace military hegemony with a violent but entirely positive dialectic of culture. Cuturally it has proven to be ready - militarily it now needs to prove to be able to let go. Not to let god, but the people.

Too much aggression and emotion in those last two videos. Maybe some Tai Chi to bring about harmony between all your Yang with some absent Yin?

Funny.  No, guns are not to be thrown at aggressors.  Just shoot the gun and stop playing with the knife.  You might cut yourself.

Ehm.... are you seeing what im doing?
Ive gone full professional with this knife throwing. This is a military kit.
Its obviously a lot quicker than drawing a gun and pulling the trigger.

Well, I must admit that I missed the lesson.

I have always viewed the knife and even the dagger as covert weapons used in close encounters.

I didn't watch the entire video but I did pick up on how the two of you walked down the sidewalk. Tall and proud.

If it had been the two of you who were in New Orleans there would have been five scum bags wiped off the map. (Five guys mugged two tourists.)

And keep in mind when I make my comments, I have to speak from my perspective. If I don't understand what you are doing I might think it's funny or maybe just a waste of time.
