I am told that the use of didgeridoo would have a bad effect on the uterus. That aboriginal women were not allowed to hear the sound of it because of its negative effect. Anyone more information on this?April 8, 2008 at 2:28 pm #28084
At the bottom. Not facts on this but a connection. The Didj. is outside the male penis and inside the womans uterus. It is seen as the spirit uterus of the greate mother.

It is interesting though why you get so many hits… my guess is that you are exposing a part of yourself that only few people dare to face within themselves… let even bring outward.
So I ponder, should I embrace you as in recognition of that part within myself or should I just ignore you and thus deny that part within me or maybe the best of both, accept you as a part of me… interesting exploration this is.
I just wonder why my uterus is evil to you? And why you feel you can heal that ‘evil’?April 16, 2008 at 6:27 pm #28092
Very Nice Paolino, but you did not answer my fair questions.
Since you are a gentleman of a special kind (which I truly believe actually)
I would like to hear what you have to share about my ‘evil uterus’.
You would make me very happy, enlighten me…April 17, 2008 at 9:22 pm #28094
Thank you for replying…
But is it not so that the new dawn is to be found in the heart?
Is it not so that we birth and rebirth and grow ourself by the power of the heart?
When a man comes inside a woman, his seed filled with love it feeds her heart? And in return the woman gives back multiplied? Instead of going in fear of losing, of loss of his seed and energy? Is that not selfish and greedy? Instead feeding his seed with love and sharing it with the one he deeply loves? What more can a woman ask for, and in return for this gift, give him thousand fold? Is this not the path to heal man and woman? To find a respectful and deeply loving way feeding each other? I believe that… and I hope that what you believe makes you happy too…
I have been looking into the things you mentioned, thank you for that.April 19, 2008 at 7:08 am #28096
Why is it that people seem to be so attracted to rush back to the Tao, denying there existance here? Is Life so disappointing? To give you an honest answer, YES. What is given to us and what we do with it and make of it is disappointing.
And YES I do have the tendancy to run away from it. Facing ‘reality’ with its pains and suffering wants to make me RUN. Where to run to? Home, the Light, the Tao… seeking the love and trust of what IS. How come we can not embrace what IS here? Yet we understand and see it is also part of the Tao, creation, in its raw form, not refined… Since you are a man of good taste, this raw world is unattractive and ugly, I agree, fully agree, that is how I feel it too.
This disappointing place in the universe, the tremendous work to refine it, to make it a place of beauty, is so tiring, I want to run.
What is the closest to run to, to feel safe and have a sense of beauty, a lover? Finding safety and beauty in the arms of a lover? As a portal to Home maybe? Is this not what you (partly) suggest with your against-the-current way to find the Tao? How wonderful it would be to disappear in my lover, as a gateway to Home…
Yet in my dream last night I was smacked right back on the road, running into road blocks which made clear I was not allowed to pass. Running into obstacles that blocked the path…thrown back on the road, to do what I have to do, not running away.
I feel in between worlds, I make myself suffer, being here and trying to embrace the ugliness and the imperfection of this world, trying to see beauty in the ugliness and perfection in the imperfection.
I am not there yet, I did not master that yet. I am still wrestling with this imperfect world and truly try to embrace it as it is, not running away from it, but make it HOME here and now.
Aaaaah, I suffer from ‘Sehnsucht’ for Home.
Yet I need my soul, my body, my life to get to realize this is my Home too…
This is Home too.
This life, this body is suffering from being here, just being here makes me suffer.
If I could make just that one click, just one click away from fully being here (not just the mind trick, but a full body and soul realization) and embracing this life here…
I very much appreciate your comments since I am currently dealing with all this very profoundly. I listen with care.April 19, 2008 at 6:34 pm #28098
There seems to be many applications of Tao Arts, for me a key is to realize what we are, our Yuan Shen, our original spirit. Our essential nature is pure awareness, pure spirit. When you are not thinking, what are are aware of is your true nature, it is the Tao. It is always with us, its up to us to focus on it, and not give our Qi, Blood and Jing to maintaining thoughts, emotions and fantasies that only create turmoil.
From my experience Qi Gong and Nei Gong are ways to assist in putting us in this place of self-awareness, and over time we know this is our true nature and all the others stuff comes and goes and we dont attach to it, we let it come and go like the sun and moon wane and wax, do we sit and get all worked up cause the sun goes down? Out thoughts and feelings are like this, Nei Gong and Qi Gong allows us to become this awareness, keep reminding yourself that is who you really are and live from that awareness.
Our true nature is always with us, it never goes away, our cultivation is to allow us to gently focus on this, allowing or Qi, Blood and Jing to solidify this unity.
The key is not whether we can digest everything in life, its whether we can let go of what is not our essential nature, stay with your spirit, stay with your Yuan Shen, stay with that which has been with you your entire life and all else will come and go in its nature, this is the Tao, create a life that allows thing to come and go as it is designed, and beware of that part of you that has always existed. The secret is this aspect of yourself that has always existed, your Yuan Shen and the same for me, we are the same Yuan Shen, we are part of the same Tao. Living from this place is the greatest example for others, living from the intensity of extreme thoughts and emotions is not a good example.
Our goal is to become aware of our yuan shen or primary nature and to focus our resources of life force on it to where this becomes what has always been, our normal, everyday awareness. It is nothing special, it is being alive.
After Qi Gong and with mediation beware of this Pure Awareness, this Spirit, this original nature, when you do you are part of the unity of life and with all of life, this is the free will we have as humans, use it and enjoy the freedom of living in the Tao.
Smiling in the Tao my friend,

Working with Nei Gong also brings up deeper and deeper things; often I am in a good place but then I am hit with a next challenge, the next layer. And I know that game, and how it works, but also it keeps asking for more awareness, more attention, more trusting…especially trusting.
Last night in dream time I was in an elevator taking me to my floor which was the 7th, the place I felt comfortable, my room, my space… a man stepped in and I remembered him as the man of the 10th floor, and I knew he would take me up to ‘his’ place, that is how this elevator works, going to the highest floor first.
I felt fear, because I knew… as soon we passed the 9th floor, the elevator left the building hanging between heaven and earth, I was in a sort of controlled fear, the man was just sort of laughing, while we were hanging in spaceless space, I was facing my fears of hights, facing the end of my life, since anything could happen in this realm… it was the space of endless possibilities, either positive or negative, so I could not be there having these fears, having fears is not the emotion to take with you on floor 10. He took me there, showed himself fearless, laughing, helping me realize my fears again, the fear of losing the body, this life… how about letting go that?!
How it remembered me of hanging in between heaven and earth, in the clouds, on Mt Huashan in 2003 or was it 2002(?), when lightening struck the cable and the cable stopped because of it, I was alone in my cabin, hanging high above ground, in between the clouds, lightening striking, not knowing what would happen… I have faced myself, my fears, my life, how the cabin would fall and my life would surely be over… Mt Huashan has been a good teacher…
I have a taste of the 10th floor, but I am not ready to dwell there and feel comfortable, I am still hanging out on my 7th floor which makes me feel good and when I feel good, then the energies pass by, work through me, pushing me a bit, inviting me to the next floor… So I am walking…
Thank you for your supporting words Bagua…

I have seen your posts in the past and know you have a good heart and wonderful spirit, so as you let go and you focus on your essential nature no need to worry if you will act properly, you can become in harmony with not only your Yuan Shen, but the Yuan of the universe, as they are the same.
Once you count, it will never end, 7, 10, 60, 10,0000, the patterns of counting is endless, if you see this you are endless too and there is no need to look for layers or levels. They come and go are not your yuan nature.
If your emotions come and go as you say, they are not your essential nature, my advice for you is not to try to completely understand them but to see they come and go and they are not your yuan shen and to focus on your yuan shen. Now to me Tao Alchemy can be the healing sounds or smile, which can give temporary relief to allow you to focus on that which is always with you, even in the intensities of emotions. In my view our alchemy is to peel away aspects of life that create a false veil for what always exists, it provides a way to refocus on our yuan shen. They are ways to untie the attachments of Yi through our life time.
Can we learn to trust that we are the Tao, we are inseparable from it and live life without the desire to get the next formula or next layer or next level, can we leave that narrow state of awareness and have the trust we are complete as is, can we live as Lao Zi advises, just make no distinctions for this or that? But accept our existence and life as it is, this is “Yuan Trust” and the formula for allowing your Yi to be in harmony with your original nature.
Hopefully our alchemy assists in this self-realization.
We can choose where to focus our attention, this is our free will, this is our spiritual independence, in this reality there is no need to seek more, but to live with what we have, it is enough. Enlightenment is being in the space were we accept life as it is and live as we are inspired from this Yuan Shen. Can you trust in this way? If not we see ourselves as inadequete, not worthy, this is the false self, we are giving our Qi, Blood and Jing to keep this alive. On a level this is the choice we make or we have continued the belief others have placed on us. We can change this just by focusing on that which is always with us, that does not come and go.
Our essential nature is the same, Tao arts are about ways to exeperience this. Do Qi Gong, Do Nei Gong, do any cultivation but at same time focus on your essential nature and reminder yourself this is your true nature. It has always been there and will always be there, it is the terrain for all of life. Attune to this aspect yourself, this is the way of Tao.
Smiling in the Tao,

Maybe we are talking about the same, and maybe I am expressing things just very differently, more bodily, or let me say, embodied, I don’t know…
To make clear there is NO DOUBT, not one in this body, that is not aware of the yuan you talk about, because it IS our natural state. But my aim is not that, since that is what we already have, it happens, IS, always.
What I am after is what LIFE is, the fact we have a body, are embodied means something and I want to know WHY. Why are we created as we are, what is the purpose of this life?
I want to experience this LIFE with all I have received, with all my senses, with all my feelings, I want to eat, drink, breath, have sex with every pore, with every part of my skin, with my full potential of my heart and soul. Seeing, feeling, breathing, tasting the beauty of this planet, that is what I BELIEVE is the purpose of being here. And by doing so creating beauty on this planet, because if that is what you really FEEL and experience there is no other way than to create beauty.
So in this light I am maybe a bit different in my approach than how you experience, yet doing the same though. Loving earth, loving the body, loving Life…
That is my practice for now , feeling myself, in relation to the outer world, which is not outer but in fact is just the outer reflection of my inner experience…
Just that is magic. So there is more magic to be found, I know for sure, and it is not in the heavens, although they have pretty cool stuff up there 🙂 (yet there is no separation of course – I am joking)
But the magic is here and now, at this moment, in this body, and it is just crazy stuff, it is a galaxy of wonder. And when I feel an emotion, it is just magic, how that works, what it does, how my body reacts and responds, how my memories are triggered and react, it is just one magical experience. So no, I am not in a hurry to let go all that, I am fascinated how it works, what it does, how it does it, and when I truly understand, there is no need anymore for it to exist. So I am more of the grab it, taste it, digest it and then… let go type, enriched with its experience in my body and soul.
Maybe that is why people suffer, to enrich the magical data bank of Life, every experience, every pain, every joy is remembered, digested, transformed by Life. Like us little humans, it needs data, we provide it, so Life can eat it, us, to create.
So while my outer life looks very smooth, relaxed and easy, my inner world is somewhat more of Alice in Wonderland feeling.
So that is my path and I like it, because it is mine and I am having fun along the way, what more can I ask for…
I am having fun taking the elevator, going up and down, pushing buttons, thrilled who will step in my elevator…. what more can a child of Wonderland ask for, a magical elevator…in a magical Life!
Nope Mr. Yuan will have to wait for me, I am having too much fun on this planet!
Have a nice magical day 🙂

Oh, and… don’t get confused by the paradox of my postings
In the jokes of the jester, the words of the fool there might be some truth…
I have a tendancy to like paradoxes, they tempt me, they invite me to look better 🙂April 21, 2008 at 5:10 pm #28110
