$1.5million Fajin Challenge

22 February 2013 - 03:55 AM

Are there any thetaobums members who live in the Chicago area?

Because it would be great if you would visit Gary to test his Jing as LittlePie did and then later you could report in this thread if it felt to you like a special power / high frequenzy vibration or like a "skill" as Stig calls it! B)


Hehehe ... well I have been running a project with $1.5million up for grabs for anyone who can prove this stuff ... interesting ... no takers yet ;)

The Tao of Jin (power) in Tai Chi Chuan

21 February 2013 - 11:21 PM

I have realized that IMA (internal martial arts) folks are reifying Jin (power) in the same way as many Taoist folks reify Tao. By this I mean that they are trying make it a concrete "thing".

You hear terms like ... emitting Jin ... or shooting Jin ... sending out Jin.

It is the same error when people think that Tao is a "thing" that can be the "object" of worship. It is also synonymous that, just as Tao is not a "thing", Jin is also not a "thing", and just as Tao is more of a "way" or pattern of things, Jin is more of a "power".

Also synonymous is that folks try and make both Tao and Jin something "special", meaning that it is something above or beyond mundane reality.

Changing the world

23 January 2013 - 12:25 PM

You hear a lot on forums like this people talking about what's wrong with the world, or how to change the world for the better.
Personally I think all we can and "should" do is live our inner virtue to the fullest ... not for the purpose of changing or achieving anything, but simply because it is the natural thing to do.

What do you think ??

Heya folks ... well I have bitten the bullet and launched a crowd-funding project through Indiegogo.com ... here's an intro from the page:



"After 8-years of research and development I am very excited to break the news with you that I am ready to release a revolutionary new Tai Chi teaching method. This ground-breaking new method makes it possible for you to learn all the Tai Chi postures, poses, and movements virtually as if you were training one-on-one with a live teacher.
