Anyway, since then I've carried on sending those positive vibes, & have learned how to supposedly protect myself from receiving the negative shit. As I've said, I'm no exprert & far from it, I just now that what I do seems to work & I've had so many positive feedback that it's more than just coincidence. If people would like to think it's absolute bollox then so be it, I've done all this shit with a completely sceptical mind & have had shit loads of legit comeback. I really couldnt give 2 shiney shites about your technical shenanigans. I've told shit loads of people where their illness are & after doing what I have done on these people, they some have miraculous recoveries.
First of all, I am not into putting people down, or putting down what somebody is into. I have noticed in this forum that so many times, whenever somebody posts something, they start off by knocking traditional martial arts, or knocking how something is done in one system or another.I realize that this point alone should be the crux of a separate thread that I am thinking of starting,but for now, to preview that idea to the extent that it is relevant here,I would point out that all of the TMA masters say,"If you perform a technique, and it doesn't work, then you simply haven't mastered that technique." What I think that we would all agree IS bull is this business you see where someone promises you that if you buy a certain video or a certain DVD or a certain tape or a certain book, then in ten minutes, you will learn secrets that will make you invincible.Comedian Bill Cosby had a truly hilarious skit about that once;I still laugh when I think about it.
Nothing you can study in ten minutes, in fact, nothing you can study in your entire lifetime will make you 100% invincible, able to defeat anyone anywhere under any circumstances.
but you can acquire skills, and some of them take awhile to develop.
Basically, I have some questions that I specifically want to direct to you, and a possible response:
1.How did you develop and/or maintain this ability?
Did this come strictly from "meditating?" What are you calling "meditating?"What exactly did you do? Did you focus your eyes on a candle? Or chant a mantra? Or what? What exactly did you do? I,too, profess to have an open mind.
2.Did this solve the problem of your depression?If not,you know what I have found helps with that is some kind of artistic expression:Take up guitar or piano.
Or do what my buddy did after his divorce:
He just gots some paints and some boards and did Jackson Pollock kinds of things, just flinging paint at the boards.
It pretty much eliminated his depression.
And he ended up with some pretty neat artwork to hang on his wall.
