Hi everyone, I stated skimming through a book entitled Fantasic Voyage that claims that if we survive to the year 2100 we will be able to live 5,000 years because of advances in nanotechnology and biotechnology that will permit reconstruction of our brains and organs at the molecular level. I think nei gong and chi kung are invaluable tools to get us there.
I am now more confident about living a rich super long life full of deep and powerful selfcultivation techniques.
Also I have a few questions: 1) I am hearing my lovers thoughts on occasion I will hear words or complete sentences, does anyone get this and or know how to deepen it?
2) I sometimes feel that I am leaking energy when I hold my girlfriends hand, does anyone know how to stop this? Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks Michael for your posting on thanksgiving and all of your wonderful teaching.November 26, 2005 at 7:36 am #8645
I must be frank with you; nano and biotechnology is not very aligned with the natural order of things. Look into what the consequences of a society totally reconstructed in the image of their creator (man) looks like. The result would probably be pretty neurotic and narcissistic.
Secondly, Why cultivate forever? This is just my personal opinion, but If I was stuck cultivating for hundreds of years, I would probably dissapoint my teachers. Why? Because I would prove that I didn’t know where I was going. When you reach a stage in your cultivation when you know where you are going to return to, you are ready to die. Which is a natural death, and the culmination of a good life.
The point of cultivation is to reach some point in the process where you are completely open to change. Death is the best change that could ever happen to you, because it’s the ulitmate loss. Why bother about living forever, when the goal of cultivation is to let go?
As to you questions: Hearing you lovers thoughts are probably a sign of heightened sensitivity. Either you are born sensitive, or getting more so as a by-product of cultivation. If it makes communication between the two of you better, great. If not, don’t pay too much attention to it.
Leaking energy to others is the natural flow if things. Your lover probably does the same, because there always exists a spontaneous exchange between partners, and that’s nothing to worry about. It all evens out in the long run.
Hope I didn’t sound too conservative or anything. Just some thoughts. Keep practicing!
