Re: I cant lose weight. How can I lose weight?

The brain regulates how much carbon dioxide is in the blood. Most people breathe too much volume per minute and it flushes out too much carbon dioxide. The blood releases oxygen to tissues where it finds carbon dioxide because it does not waste resources. It isn't easy or comfortable, but it is pos...

Re: I cant lose weight. How can I lose weight?

If you only want to read what you already believe there is nothing I can do about it. The only thing that you'll change by breathing differently is the carbon dioxide levels in your blood. While it is true that weight is mainly lost through breath, you cannot change the amount of carbon dioxide pro...

Re: Does pornography leads to rebirth in a lower realm?

If one says there is a different for those watching porns and those maintaining relations providing with such kind of joy, that would thenbe possible because porn-watcher, for the most, simply "steal" their pleasures and let others do the hard job. I hadn't thought of it that way. You make an inter...

Re: Does pornography leads to rebirth in a lower realm?

Who says that effects of actions work out differently depending on cloth or livelihood for the bodily needs? Aging, sickness, death... that all stays bad and is caused by seeking of wrong relaying-ship. I never said that it works out differently. Unless I'm misremembering there's a standard for mon...

Re: Does pornography leads to rebirth in a lower realm?

Not all porn is the same. Watching depictions of cruelty for pleasure is probably pretty bad. But there's also drawn stories done in the context of a loving relationship, which I'm not convinced would be bad at all thing unless you're a monastic. Who says that effects of actions work out differentl...

Re: I cant lose weight. How can I lose weight?

The book Breath by James Nestor said that for every ten pounds of fat one loses over eight of them leave the body by way of the breath. When oxygen is taken in and used, it leaves with a carbon atom. This adds up to a significant amount. You can do more for your metabolism and weight by learning ne...

Re: Unintentional bad thoughts about Buddha

Just me spitballing an idea here. If this thought causes you a lot of distress, then perhaps it's better to put it on the back burner. Contemplation on consequences, real or imagined, while agitated won't bring any insight because the mind is not in a position to process any information correctly or...

Re: People you have on your ignore list should not trigger notifications

Such a feature should be almost trivial to implement. However, if the site is more on the spaghetti code persuasion or there's some unforeseen bug then it might be more difficult. The basic logic of notification goes something like this: If you have made a comment and someone has quoted you, then yo...

Re: How to arise samvega in approximately 1 second.

Perhaps old age, sickness and death motivate towards the path. Many people chose many different paths unless you are a Buddhist with the knowledge of Noble Eightfold Path. For a nihilist even the three signs are not enough to arise Samvega. In modern society it is very difficult to arise Samvega du...
