Time and Psychic Power

Written by Dale Power

Time does not exist. Not inrepparttar way we normally think at least. It certainly does not seem to work normally in psychic pursuits at any rate! This creates both problems and opportunities for us. If we can learn to understandrepparttar 122130 nature of time in regards to our psychic efforts we will have much greater success with them.

Due torepparttar 122131 brief nature of this article,repparttar 122132 subject will be confined torepparttar 122133 issue of psychokinesis and time. While many ofrepparttar 122134 same basic rules will apply to our information gathering skills, such as telepathy, precognition and remote viewing, because of our personal perspective, it is easier in some ways to understand what is going on with time when we try to effect change onrepparttar 122135 world around us.

Our problems with time, in regards to PK stem from two basic points;

1. Time does not exist, at least not inrepparttar 122136 way we are used to dealing with it, on a psychic level. This may indicate that psychic effects are taking place at a quantum level.

2. The portion of our minds that controls psychic functioning does not have a concept of time. That exists in a different area ofrepparttar 122137 brain. So our psychic efforts must be linked to events rather than time coordinates.

Between these two points and our common perception of time, we run into a few problems. By notingrepparttar 122138 problems we can come up with some solutions that can increase our psychokinetic success rate.

PK spreads out over time. When you try to effect anything on a psychic level,repparttar 122139 actual effect can be (if a researcher is careful and looks atrepparttar 122140 data) charted as starting before you beginrepparttar 122141 attempt, rise to a peak of strength a short while afterrepparttar 122142 attempt takes place and then tapering off over time. Because time does not work inrepparttar 122143 same way on a psychic level, you can effect things before during and afterrepparttar 122144 actual cause (your PK attempt) happens. Because your mind does not understand time inrepparttar 122145 portions ofrepparttar 122146 brain that controls psychic functioning, its targeting of a specific event tends towards a more shotgun pattern.

It can take some thought to really understand how to deal with this problem. Time is so integral to how most of us think, that it seems almost silly that we would have to account for drift and PK effects going torepparttar 122147 wrong time.

Another big problem is mis-targeting. It is very possible to be 100% successful in your psychic attempt, withrepparttar 122148 exception ofrepparttar 122149 fact that you influenced an event that happened long ago, or will happen inrepparttar 122150 far future! It is possible in fact that every PK attempt has real world manifestations, but we are not local torepparttar 122151 specific happening, so we never seerepparttar 122152 results.

The Role of Zen in Martial Arts

Written by Jeffrey M. Miller

It's said thatrepparttar roots of many ofrepparttar 122129 Martial Arts is in India, with Buddhist monks. While many sources give conflicting data, it's known that in Japan,repparttar 122130 only places that were large enough to allow for indoor training during inclement weather, wererepparttar 122131 huge Buddhist temples. In fact, much of what is done in Martial Arts schools with a Japanese background comes from, and can be traced back to this connection.

For example, white uniforms wererepparttar 122132 attire of Japanese Buddhist monks and lay-people alike. The kyu and dan "class" and "level" grade rankings were originally developed for and used as markers for how much a monk had learned and progressed through his training. And, much ofrepparttar 122133 etiquette within dojos "training halls") is identical to those used in these same temples to show respect to all that has gone before me and to all that I aspire to become. In fact,repparttar 122134 Japanese kanji characters used to writerepparttar 122135 word 'dojo' actually refer to "a place where enlightenment takes place."

Now, before you run out and scream about quitting for fear of being converted to Buddhism, Hinduism, or some other 'foreign', sacrilegious cult - don't panic. Buddhism, while often practiced like many conventional Western religions, is not really a religion at all - at least notrepparttar 122136 way most people define or practice a so-called 'religion'.

As developed byrepparttar 122137 founder Siddhartha Gautoma, refered to asrepparttar 122138 Buddha ("one who is awake"), and fine-tuned overrepparttar 122139 past two and a half - plus centuries, Buddhism is a philosophy of personal development wherebyrepparttar 122140 practitioner works to understand his or her true nature andrepparttar 122141 immutable laws ofrepparttar 122142 universe that governrepparttar 122143 world and everything in it. It is not at all a belief system as are many religions today, but instead relies onrepparttar 122144 student coming to an intimate understanding of reality and truth through direct, personal experience.

One ofrepparttar 122145 monks credited with developing martial Arts inrepparttar 122146 Buddhist temples ofrepparttar 122147 time was known as Bodhidharma,repparttar 122148 founder of Zen. This new training was readily adopted byrepparttar 122149 monks for many reasons. And whilerepparttar 122150 monks may have been interested in defending themselves from unfriendly outsiders, it is also likely that they also wished to prepare themselves forrepparttar 122151 demands of their daily lives - lives which required that they sat unmoving for hours while in deep meditative practice. The Martial arts they practiced were a great means of physical exercise while still being based heavily on their philosophical beliefs of peace through "understanding conflict."
