Awesome, Brian! Thank you so much for not keeping this not-so-secret but somewhat forgotten technique all to yourself. 😂

It’s funny how the older you get the younger everyone around you looks. Maybe it’s in part due to weakening vision (that was a genius decision on the part of the Great Spirit in the Sky).

People in their 60’s look younger to me now and people in their 20’s look like children!

It does feel like for women the aging process is a little harsher. I think women actually age quicker than men (like scientifically, but don’t quote me).

Maybe it’s vanity. Although, “healthy is beautiful”.

The Chlorella and Spirulina have done wonders for my skin and metabolism.

The only thing missing now is The Five Rites. Should do a before and after picture that I’ll never share with anyone besides my cat.

This is totally doable.

“The Five Tibetan Rites (the Five Tibetans/the Fountain of Youth exercise) are five simple kriyas* that you can complete in less than 20 minutes. It's said it will help you live the long healthy, vigorous life similarly to the Tibetan Monks.”



You ban commentators who disagree with you about what to do with the Woo Virus, but you promote silly books that tout bogus Mystic Tibetan exercises that supposedly produce the fountain of youth?

Do me a favor Brian -- take down those two posts of mine that you gushed over. I don't want anything to do with any blogger that censors people.

j, apparently you haven't checked this blog's comment policies. Here's a link:


I don't care if people disagree with me. I don't censor or ban people unless they are habitual offenders against the comment policies. What I do care about is the promulgation of false facts. As I like to say, everybody is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.

Some of the comments you submitted weren't published because they were factually wrong about the COVID crisis and what needs to be done to combat it. This is a matter of science, not of politics or opinion. My commenting policies include this:

(7) No false "facts" about critical issues. As the saying goes, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts. This applies to this blog, especially about COVID-19 and other critical issues. Blatantly false comments won't be published if they're about life and death or other critical topics such as global warming.

I very much enjoyed the two comments you referenced about RSSB that I made into blog posts, so I won't be taking them down. However, my conscience won't let me be part of sharing false information about COVID, because this is a life or death matter.

The United States, and the world, will be able to get out of the COVID crisis if we all pay attention to public health experts and the science of how a pandemic spreads. That's why I'm being strict about not publishing comments that downplay the seriousness of COVID and what needs to be done to get it under control.

You're a valued commenter, as is everybody who comments on this blog. Hope you keep on commenting about other topics, and on COVID also so long as you stick to the facts.

OK, I got really dizzy after the first one. Like seasick dizzy. I don’t know how you can do that. The second one is the easiest. The third is a lot harder than it looks. 4th and 5th strenuous but not impossible.

I wonder how old she is. 🤔 She is super fit and pretty or “easy on the eyes”. Supposedly GSD keeps pics of pretty girls on his phone from the sangat. I guess pretty girls are a big motivator for men. ;)

OK, that came out wrong. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it either (not unless your wife is the really jealous type). And the pictures I’m referring to were ones taken at an event at Haynes park. I don’t think it’s like a regular thing he does. But the fact is people are naturally more attentive to pretty people. It’s like a subconscious prejudice. Beauty is a pretty amazing thing, though.

Hey, j.

Your comments provoke thought, so I hope you stick around. Don't take it personally when we cross swords. It's only words against words and ideas against ideas.

My husband was really impressed with this door to door salesman that came to our neighborhood this morning. So much so that he took 3 pictures of her. She was a college kid on one of those gyroscope Segway scooters going door to door using an iPad. He said he was just amazed at how effortlessly she was able to maneuver all the technology. He said he took the pictures of her from the side and behind because he thought I might get upset if he asked her to pose for a picture. (Yes, she was attractive.) His story just kept getting more and more ridiculous. 🤣🤣🤣

Then he came into my room (office) and gave me a Tibetan singing bowl and said that I needed to balance my chi. He said every time I get mad at him I need to try perfecting the technique of using the Tibetan singing bowl. 😂

So I did some research on them...

“The sound of Tibetan singing bowls and the gong harmonizes and allows deep relaxation of both sides of the brain. It stimulates stress relief on all levels and the elimination of toxins from the body. After sound therapy emotions are calm and the mind clearer, and the sound vibrations have effect on the body after the singing bowls have been played on it.

After sound therapy we are tuned again.

The bowl sings ''ommmmm'', which revives the basic DNA codes and activates the codes that we haven’t yet perceived or we had suppressed till now. Tibetan singing bowls are one of the strongest musical instruments for healing with sound therapy and vibrations. They are called singing bowls because their exotic sound continues to float for a long time after we have played on them.“


This day has gotten to be ridiculous. Luckily we’ve been married long enough for me to let most of what he says go in one ear and out the other if what he says annoys me. I think that’s the hallmark of a strong relationship. LOL

Sonia: "Then he came into my room (office) and gave me a Tibetan singing bowl and said that I needed to balance my chi."

Thanks for the reminder. Long time since I've played this youtube and the chakra reverberations were so strong I'm thinking I have to do this every day now...

Hello, Brian. Very interesting blog! I like your writing voice.I am hugely interested in Benoit. I am very glad to discover someone conversant in Benoit.

Lynn, as you can tell I like Benoit a lot. I must have read his book four or five times, enjoying it more with every reading. He had a unique take on Zen. Thanks for your comment about my "writing voice." I never think of writing in that way, but probably I should. I suppose our own writing style becomes so familiar to us, like our speaking voice, we don't consider that it is anything special. At least, that's the way I've always felt about it.
