Moderator Wanted

I am so happy people are talking on the forum again.

However, as you can see, it is already filling up with spam, e.g. from “meditateallday.com”.

I would like a volunteer, or maybe two just to spread the load (which is very little anyway, currently), to moderate the forum. All you have to be is a regular visitor to the forum, and delete any obvious spam you see. It will just be a button you press that deletes the spam and the account, and bans the account.

Any volunteers please comment below. It would be best if I know you quite well.

Thanks!

    Does this position come with free siddhis? 😀

    I check blogs/websites every morning with coffee, I can help you weed out spam. Just let me know.

      I know it’s a joke but why do people want siddhis?

        True story: I started meditation with one goal: To be able to fly around someone and fire electricity into them. I have been OBSESSED with powers since before I can remember. Yet, ultimately they have only brought me disaster so far (with a nice fat peak of hedonism beforehand to make the fall even harder).

        • Blink says:

          Ever since I was a child, I’ve wanted to be able to stop time at will.

          Maybe you believed they would? Bring disaster that is. (Maybe you wanted it? Just a thought, not trying to be a smartass). I don’t do intention manifestation because a) I don’t think anything can be “forced” b) I’m hyperaware of this tiny thought in the background saying it’ll go badly – and in a way I often want things to go my way and I also don’t want things to go my way so it’s weird c) to be totally honesty I don’t believe in it.

          From what I’ve seen, trying to control things wastes energy. But to each their own.

      Thanks for that, I’ll set it up and email you over the next few days. 🙂

    Mind powers are dope, and let you do dope shit.

    Here’s an example:

    I use to martial arts at a high level, I got to the point not only could I literally “feel” space, it was like another level of perception. You hear of guys who have to “find their range”, never applied to me, I knew exactly how far I was without any feeling out process.

    I would also know exactly what my opponent was going to do before they did, I’m talking anywhere from 1-10 full seconds, whether it was a single move or a combination. The information just sort of came to me. I could get so far in the “zone” everything happened in slow motion, I could do this at will.

    What good is it to have any skill? Any power? you just going to die right? It’s all part of the game. If you want to work in an office from 9-5 and smoke cigs thats an option.

    If you wanna work out, eat healthy, drive fast cars, that’s an option too.

    You wanna try controlling shit with your mind? Wanna see the different layers of reality? You can do that too.

    For me, it’s mainly fun and curiosity.

    • Blink says:

      Good reply. It really is all a game 🙂

      Hey James, as a student of martial arts myself, I find your comment very interesting. Can you tell me what martial arts you practiced, what form of meditation you practiced, and how long you had practiced meditation by the time you could observe the benefits you mentioned in sparring/competition?

    I did martial arts before I did meditation. I started down the path of meditation because I was getting black out angry and had a dangerous martial ability.

    I started with, and pretty much stayed with, traditional martial arts – not what you see today really, I mean actual traditional martial arts.

    It took me 5 years of training to get my black built in Isshinryu Karate. One of the requirments was learning kata’s – Sesian, seuchin, wansu, sanchin, kusansu, chinto, suansu.

    In each kata you had to develop perfect technique – for instance if you punch you have to punch full force, with proper breathing, proper stance, proper tension – you are light and fluid until the strike reaches maximum velocity and then you tense everything at the point of impact, and you always pull your strikes back into a block, which again have to be at the perfect position.

    The point of all that is it was basically concentration meditation.

    While training in Isshinryu I also did Yoshukai and jiu-jitsu. Yoshukai was full contact karate, no equipment/cloth equipment. My instructor was a bad motherfucker, and he beat the living the shit out of me, the benefit being that when I was against anyone who wasn’t him, I was calm, and I had honed my concentration.

    whenever I learned a technique I would visualize myself doing it, I would feel myself doing the technique. at any point during the visualization I lost concentration, or my “visual” body felt awkward, I’d go over that point with my mind in great detail until my body felt confident with it.

    If you watch an MMA fight, and see someone throw an overhand right, you’d see yourself standing infront of him, half stepping to the side and throwing a straight right counter. That kind of thing helps a ton.
