All teachers, whoever they are, present whatever insights *they* wish to share.
If someone or something doesn’t resonate, one can simply go to another teacher or form one’s one path. It is not up to you to decide what Michael is teaching or presenting!
The anger and rage you are disseminating here on the Board belongs you and you alone.
I suggest you take ownership of that and see if that’s a self-indicator that you need to make a change . . . whether that is a new direction or whether it involves therapeutical tools. In total, I suggest you worry about your own life and less about what others are doing.
If you insist on continuing with on-going character attacks against Michael on his own forum, I will have to ban you from this Board. It’s not any judgment, just a simple fact of forum operations.

But I thought I was their best seller and substantiation substinance? :/September 18, 2014 at 6:54 am #42982
he is a peach, teaching his own self created, deleterious “peach” religion to would be new age occultists
people who have no experience, no idea what it will actually turn into…
you are talking about the core of a person being tampered with…
and the complete joke is that he is the only person on earth teaching it..
there is nothing Taoist left to it after his tee-total
it would be different if he was not constantly denigrating other people…
just watch someone ask a normal question and be snapped at or be talked to like an idiot…
REMEMBER, THE MORE AND MORE PEACHY-NESS YOU CULTIVATE,
THE MORE AND MORE PEACHY IT WILL BE…
99% YIN IN ITS NEUTRAL-NESS
MORE AND MORE TOTAL HARMONY…September 19, 2014 at 10:33 am #42984September 20, 2014 at 3:33 am #42986
One of the more widely known of such lines of transmission is the Qian Feng Pai or Thousand Peaks school, whose popularity stems from a book by Zhao Bi-chen “Secrets of cultivation of Life and Destiny”. This book was translated into English by Lu K’uan Yu, known also as Charles Luk and published under the title “Taoist Yoga, Alchemy and Immortality”. The orthodox Wu-Liu Pai school does not recognize Qian Feng Pai as preserving the full transmission.
The Sumiyoshi-kai (×¡¼ª»á?), sometimes referred to as the Sumiyoshi-rengo (×¡¼ªßBºÏ Sumiyoshi-reng¨?, “Sumiyoshi Union”), is the second-largest yakuza group in Japan with an estimated 20,000 members. The Sumiyoshi-kai is a confederation of smaller gangs. Its current sosai, or president, is Shigeo Nishiguchi. Structurally, the Sumiyoshi-kai differs from its main rival, the Yamaguchi-gumi. The Sumiyoshi-kai, as a federation, has a looser chain of command and although Nishiguchi is still the supreme Godfather, he shares some powers with several other men.
This present translation has been of course outdated for quite long time.
My new suggested translation of it would be such a special two-piece work of art.
So first part would be literal translalation like for example that Eva Wong dragon-tiger classic and the second piece would be still translation, but that would be more in the style of Lu Kuan Yu, which would mean that it’s very interpretive. And then of course proper commentary would be needed.
Sorry for my broken English.
Ps. If one is seriously interested about Taoist practice one shouldn’t use too much time for brawling, but here it really might be that just that is the real predilection.

Mozi (Chinese: 墨子; pinyin: Mòzǐ; WadeGiles: Mo Tzu, Lat. as Micius, ca. 470 BC ca. 391 BC), original name Mo Di (墨翟), was a Chinese philosopher during the Hundred Schools of Thought period (early Warring States period).
Born in Tengzhou, Shandong Province, China, he founded the school of Mohism and argued strongly against Confucianism and Daoism. During the Warring States period, Mohism was actively developed and practiced in many states but fell out of favour when the legalist Qin Dynasty came to power. During that period, many Mohist classics were ruined when Qin Shi Huang carried out the burning of books and burying of scholars. The importance of Mohism further declined when Confucianism became the dominant school of thought during the Han Dynasty, until mostly disappearing by the middle of the Western Han Dynasty.
“Mo-Tzu was the founder of our lineage. He knew about yin ch’i and yang ch’i, but he had no idea how to put the two together. So he experimented with his students…

Sorry but I don’t intent to review this book (Basic Practices…), but here again could be next task for Ribosome.
That kind of one-sidedly nasty complaining is quite unfruitful.
Ps. Sorry for my broken English.
