mICHAEL DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE PRCATICES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NEIDAN, TAI CHI , FENG SHUI,
The holistic practices of the ancient masters integrate science, art, and personal spiritual development. Mind, body, and spirit participate in them equally. They include:

Syang Ming, the science which predicts a person’s destiny by observing the outward physical manifestations of his face, skeleton, palms, and voice;
Feng Shui, the science of discerning the subtle energy rays present in a geographic location to determine whether they will properly support the activities of a building or town constructed there;
Fu Kua, the observation of the subtle alterations of yin and yang for the purpose of making decisions which are harmonious with the apparent and hidden aspects of a situation. The foundation of Fu Kua and of all Taoist practice is the study of the I Ching, or Book of Changes.
Nei Dan, Wai Dan, and Fang Jung, the sciences of refining one’s personal energy through alchemy, chemistry, and the cultivation of balanced sexual energy;
Tai Syi, the science of revitalization through breathing and visualization techniques;
Chwun Shi, the transformation of one’s spiritual essence through keeping one’s thoughts in accord with the Divine Source;
Shu-Ser, the attunement of one’s daily life to the cycle of universal energy rays;
Bi Gu, the practice of fasting on specific days in order to gather life energy emanating from the harmonized positions of certain stars;
Sau Yi, the science of embracing integral transcendental oneness in order to accomplish conception of the ‘mystical pearl’;
Tai Chi Ch’uan, the performance of physical exercises to induce and direct energy flows within the body to gain mastery of body, breath, mind, the internal organs, and life and death;
Fu Chi, the science of reforming and refining one’s energy with pure food and herbs;
Chuan Se, the inner visualization of the unity of one’s inner and outer being;
‘Dzai Jing, the purification of one’s energy through ascetic practices;
Fu Jou, the drawing of mystical pictures and the writing and recital of mystical invocations for the purpose of evoking a response from the subtle realm of the universe;
Tsan Syan, the process of dissolving the ego and connecting with the Great Oneness through the study of classical scriptures and daily dialogue with an enlightened master;
Lyou Yen and Chi Men, the mystical sciences of energy linkage for the purpose of influencing external affairs. Of these, the most important for beginners is the study of the I Ching, which enables one to perceive the hidden influences in every situation and thus establish a balanced and spiritually evolved means of responding to them. All are instruments for attaining the Tao. To study them is to serve universal unity, harmony, and wisdom.April 9, 2005 at 1:07 pm #4168
That’s a great name. And you ask a lot of questions, some of them good, and some of them irrelevant – like the sex lives of immortals and buddhas – the answers wouldn’t really matter until you get closer to their level.
But may I suggest that you post your questionss in small caps. ALL CAPS IS EQUIVALENT TO SCREAMING AT SOMEONE AT TH TOP OF YOUR LUNGS.
Best to save that device to emphasize a really important point. Who wants to reply screamed questions?
Also, the reason I deleted your posts the other days was because you happened to post about eight screamed posts in a row at the same time that the site was being flamed by porn. So many multiple posts at once can be considered a form of spam.
So I think you will get more response if you space your qeustions out, or pool them all into one long email.
I had recently posted Brian Walker’s link to the Hu Hua Ching. No, I don’t know all of the esoteric sciences that Ni alludes to, only some of them.
But I can gurantee you that Ni won’t teach them out anytime soon, if he does in fact know all of them.
In theory, an immortal could fall, since they have free will. Immortals trapped within physical and low astral planes are called demon immortals.
