    Hi guys :D,

    As per my master's instructions and with his guidance and blessings, I'm going into meditative isolation for a few weeks. I'll be traveling to my grandma's in a few hours. She lives DEEP in the countryside - I mean no electricity, no running water (just a nearby well), jungles all around, just pure, raw nature that's buzzing with the life and energy of creation.

    I desperately, desperately want to achieve yin-yang kung (level 4) in the next couple of years so that I can finally start to practice kung fu - the yi jin jing as it is meant to: with the weight of a supernatural force behind every movement. The only reasonable way to achieve that level is to go on retreat as much as possible, so this is just a dry run to be honest. If I can settle in nicely, I'll finish up my affairs in society and live in the wilderness.

    Sanya, watch over me :). I love you all!

    This just in: @pewep was killed while on a meditative retreat. He was attacked by a pack of hyenas he thought he saw.

    If you're a level 4 yin-yang kung wizard , what are the other levels?

    It's 4:18 in the morning, why am I still awake?

    There are a total of 72 known - one for every major and minor chakra in the body, but I suspect there are many more considering that there are major chakras outside of the body as well...

    And don't forget that according to Vajrayana, there are more than 720,000+ different nadis that need to be opened before complete enlightment...lol.

    That is exactly right Neon. Before level 4, it's extremely difficult to project dense yang outside of the body (unless under duress or near a yin emitter) but after that it becomes easier. Assuming that's real footage, he's using yang to heat up the wood. It's actually a test for thunder path students. Another is putting a chopstick through a piece of wood (using yang) to basically burn a hole right through.

    I have a neighbor that lives like that... solar, compost toilet, no running water.

    I've never been in her home but I can imagine it is probably a different world.

    If that's level 4, this must be level 72.

    No, it's much, much stronger than that actually. Your life force doubles after every level beyond 3.

    Haha, well I think the cognitive differences would be much more profound than the raw power.

    I understand and appreciate the general skepticism. I'm very much a show-me kind of guy, and I want to teach meditation for most of my life...but I can't really teach what I don't understand or haven't experienced. That's my primary motivation I think.

    I don't think it's skepticism. Most of us just like teasing you. I know I do. :p

    Ah, cool :). Yeah basically just out in the countryside. Yeah, there've fortunately been some improvements to it lately (as well as Nairobi)..I mean it's still Kenya but there's progress being made haha.
