Ahem.


One might suggest that if one wishes not to be told one has adopted a physically impossible position, then perhaps one should not refer to the practices of others as "mental masturbation".  :D

My exact comment was in regard to practices that in and of themselves do not lead to the goal of liberation, but specificly undertaken for the experience of a sensation, in this case your bragging of your practice of tummo and your supposed attainment of it. By your own addmission it was all about the sensation, so the next time you fault me for making a commonly referenced  comparison to such practices I suggest you think twice.

Did I accuse you of mental masterbation? No. My statement was that for most western practitioners it was the equivalent of.

Meez, it wasn't a "good chat", just me on a roll :)

Hmmm... the 9th Bumi... are you referring to something from the Avatar Airbender series or did you mean "bhumi"?  It's really hard to tell :lmfao:

Boomey.  It's a measure of the ability to compassionately share my downward voiding wind ! :)

I think you did, ackshully.  I mean, I might now say that most Zen practioners have an everted viewpoint on such subjects and then I might claim not to have mentioned you specifically, and then proclaim my innocence to the world. But I wouldn't expect anyone to believe it...

I am starting to believe it is possible to have a foot in one's mouth and have one's head up one's butt simultaneously. Not mentioning anyone specifically of course.  :D Now, if one were to shoot oneself in the foot from this position, where would the holes appear?
 Staff have discussed the recent exchanges between yourself and Dharmakara (incognito) in Chat and elsewhere, and have reached the conclusion that your words were also a breach of Right Speech.

Therefore, this warning is being issued to you as well.

Catmoon, you've disrespected me for the last time. Certainly most of us have better things to do than waste our time dealing with your spare baggage. As a matter of record, not only did I not accuse you of such, you brought up a subject that shouldn't have been mentioned in the open in the first place.

Get your act together or hold your tongue, upasaka, because you're just digging yourself a deeper hole.
