Topics I've Started

One finger Zen

25 December 2020 - 07:45 AM



Something I've been doing lately is this position, not low in the horse-rider stance like the poseur here, but in a more upright position where arms and legs tire at the same pace. You can start with your feet shoulder-width apart and adjust, hold the arms forward and fingers in one finger zen. Knees bent, gently sinking into a standing-seating position, completely relax. A couple of minutes twice a day.


I swear it feels like it's toning my nervous system.


In Chi-kung this is called The Golden Bridge.

Buddha and Acceptance

26 June 2020 - 02:09 PM

Watched a documentary about Buddha the other night (BBC, Bettany Hughes). Found it inspiring so dug out my old copy of the Dhammapada.


One of his core teachings was that desire is the root of all suffering.


On this site acceptance is an idea often referred to as important in recovery. It occurred to me that these things are the same. "Want nothing," is the same as accepting.


Just a thought.
