Inner Cultivation ... just talking about it some.
If you want to master a Thing, BECOME that thing. You have to literally embody that which you want to master or be proficient at, which leads me to mention the scientific realization that matter is energy or in other words matter is "mind". I do not practice martial arts anymore, mainly because I am getting older and hopefully wiser (hopefully evolving). [Though, in my opinion learning to properly defend yourself and your loved ones with the tools and skills to do so is also a wise undertaking in its right context.]
I'd rather spend more of my time and energy refining the inner person that transcends the material world and all of its workings. In my opinion to transcend doesn't mean to escape or leave the world, it means to excel deeply through it and to enhance and advance because of it! I will however admit that tasty treats of REAL physical and mental power are an after effect of inner training, so take that as you may. I trust that what we become and do catches up to us eventually, so I think it is wise to carefully step through existence not disturbing things too much, and leave the ego that seeks power to the power-hungry who are hungry for power. Inner cultivation leaves you without the sense of "lack", you are filled, full, and whole.
Practices that lead to Deep enhancements:
We are literally one with all things; not only do we embody the cosmic unity but The Cosmos actually puts us on as its clothing, its immateriality materialized.
Some inner cultivation technologies:
Iron thread/Tid Sin Qigong (personally practiced 10 years)
Kuji-in/Kuji Kiri (personally practiced 10 years)
Pranayama with or without hand or body mudras (personally practiced 9 years)
Kunlun - Taoist Neigung developed by the master Max Christensen (personally practiced 9-10 years off and on)
Inner cultivation reaches a mastery-level when the ego has been absorbed INTO the practice itself, I can't say much else on how that feels or works, it is SELF realized; it is Frightening and Wonderful at the same time!!!
Ruach is Real...
Ruach is a Hebrew word that "points to" wind, breath, and life force.
Ruach is also known as life-force, chi/qi, prana, and holy spirit; ruach can manifest as the sekhem (Egyptian word for the rising burning-healing power) and kundalini (the sanskrit word for the rising feminine-serpent power).
Ruach, Prana, Chi....
Is Cosmic energy... The plane of all Being. Each level of images/Beings have a portion of it. The greater the Portion of Ruach, the Loftier The image/nature.
Ruach is both the brain and body, it is the mind-body. Ruach is also the Cosmos and its various multidimensional forces, places and things. Since Ruach is essentially everything, the common substance, the body-mind can and does translate and receives/transmits the Cosmic blueprint and in-form-ation via Ruach . The brain like an antenna receives and transmits information into and through the body, as the body also sends and receives information through the brain and into all the cosmos, the 3 unified as One. As mastery reaches a certain level the cosmos is literally communicated and communed with through the body-mind/brain as they are the manifested material of Ruach, The immateriality. "As above, so below"
Ruach is Consciousness.
By the refinement and discipline of Ruach, the master-student becomes proficient in all things they put their hands and will to.
To discipline and refine the Ruach is not really to change Ruach, Ruach is perfection, what we discipline and refine is the self that channels and tunes Ruach. Since the body, mind, self is All the composite of Ruach, we can say that we are refining Ruach in a way. It is not a foolish or untrue thing to say that, "the master-student can direct the cosmos." The human body-temple is a house of the gods, it is the dwelling of lofty intelligent forces, and how we use the temple will dictate whether these forces are benevolent or malevolent. To touch upon the intangible and spiritual dimension is simply a matter of refining the matter that is not really "matter". All things we can see, touch, feel, think, hear, taste and know is Energy, even the inconceivable realities are still finer more deeply subtle energies. All energy is really One... The Almighty Ruach, Life, God, Love, Power, Knowing; in its manifested quality as we know the universe as, is still The One itself cloaked in matter. So, since matter is the One same Almighty Force and Ruach, we can touch this by self imposed discipline and love upon the body -self. This is where inner cultivation differs from just ordinary exercise because of the intention suggested and seriously SELF- imposed. Inner cultivation reaches into the supposed self, it travels deeply into the being, it refines the body, the temperament, the will, and it refines the character into a more brightly illuminating presence.
