Re: Oil rig worker, skin problem.

Change in diet could only help. Dude's farrr from healthy in so many ways.
I was thinking someone might have had personal experience of oil rig skin horror stories. The phenomenon is widespread among rig workers, but suspiciously hard to find online.

Re: Oil rig worker, skin problem.

seeing impermanence and non satisfaction of body, he should ordain and strive for liberation.. no one will discriminate him in monastery.. No way he'd trade Jerry Springer for Buddha.

Oil rig worker, skin problem.

A friend used to work on oil rig, 10-15 years ago, exposed to oil-based mud products, drilling fluid, bacteria from farm animals... Ever since, he's had severe skin problems like rash on armpits & neck, dark crusts on feet like 'tree-man' almost, & terrible smell. For $30,000 he agreed to never agai...

Re: covid vaccine: yea or nay?

Wim Hof cures all.
Lockdown continues indefinitely because everyone's more afraid of a cold shower than COVID19.
See researchgate.net for preliminary test results in "Voluntary activation of the sympathetic nervous system and attenuation of the innate immune response in humans."

Re: Do you experience a lower heart rate when you practice meditation?

Specific numbers I don't have. Just know that I'm hard af!
There's a significant drop because I'm experienced, prepared, fearless, and already deep into meditation when he takes the first swing.
Countless hours on the cushion pay off in unexpected ways.

Yes, but also during/after a fight, or being hit by a truck.

Re: Frank Yang is DONE!

One thing I want to know...how did he know "full enlightenment" was coming so that he could live stream it? Clickbait. The moment on the couch at 'awakening' looks to be a while after the actual 'event'. He explains that day and the lead up in detail in 'Guru Viking Interviews episode 60'. Good tim...

Frank Yang is DONE!

Frank Yang says he's fully enlightened since about 3 months ago, and is very YOUTUBE about it, so this thread was inevitable. Congratulations! He appears to have been working hard at this for some years using Goenka, Mahasi, Dzogchen and others, and achieved something remarkable. He believes he's do...

Re: Question regarding the terminology 'discursive thought'
