  • @‌ HollyRose1 My advice is to bring a medic to her house, to do the consultation and prescribe the medicine to be taken. I know, it might cost something, but at least you make sure someone ( hopefully ) qualified in the art of healing will do th…
  • @how said: I was recently in a discussion about meditation instruction for new people in a non aligned spiritual community center and was wondering what everyone's personal experiences of first receiving meditation instructions had been like? …
  • Understand...
  • @jll said: Do you suffer from constipation? How do you deal with it? Include some 'oily' meals in your diet : fat milk , yoghurt, sour pork or beef soup ( search borsch recepies ), salad with olive oil. Also don't forget to drink lots of …
  • @Woah93 said: I'm getting a tad bit frustrated with it all lately... In a system where your gain means someone else's loss it's starting to look like everything is designed to influence you to make you buy something. Mainstream media is packed wi…
  • @yagr said: I know that it can be very difficult to give advice over the internet when it comes to our respective practices but I'm asking for someone, anyone who might have a suggestion to go ahead and suggest something anyway. My thymus …
  • What would I do ? I'd go from door to door to do whatever chore anyone would need to do for a loaf of bread. Or, I'd plainly steal. Really . I'd steal food until I either find a decent job ( hard to believe that anyone would do that after resorti…
  • @betaboy said: Think of sin/ignorance as leprosy. The ignorant man ostracized the leper, whereas Jesus healed him, showered compassion upon him. This is because the ignorant man saw sin (or leprosy) as an evil thing to be punished, whereas Jesus …
  • Hi, I am new to Buddhism and am learning day by day through books and podcast,s of the Dalia Lama. One really important thing which has been puzzling me about the life Animals is ' why do some animals seem to exist only for the purpose of feeding ot…
  • The Ukranian problem is really, really delicate. First, you have a history where Kiev ( the actual capital of Ukraine ) was the nucleus of the Rus ( russian ) voyvodate. Second, you have a history where Ukraine and Russia are separate. Ukraine was a…
  • Just a fun thread - what's your profession, do you have fun in it, does it help or hinder in your mindfulness/precepts or other practices? Just share freely. Thanks. Vet embryo here. Still three more years to go, and so far, my practice has not …
  • Ok, sure... In life, we should use our varying experiences off poor health (in fact, ALL experiences) to try and deepen our realisation of several key teachings: The Skandas, Emptiness/Sunyata, The Thee Lakshanas etc to break through our own veil of…
  • here is a quote from the movie the bucket list: What does a snail have to do to reincarnate? Leave the perfect trail of slime? yeah it is funny quote but meaningful. what can animals do for good karma? you know, they don't have own self self awarene…
  • How much sugar is too much? I drink many cups of tea, so all in all I could be consuming at least 5 spoons of sugar each day. Is this too much, if one wants to lose weight? I can't say if it's a lot or not. This depends on many factors like age, …
  • Romanian folk song made better. The title says : A Romanian and Aromanian folk session.
  • I recently realized that my success and failures dont define who I am because they do not change who I am. Your the same person except you have that success to hang on to and everybody sees it. Other people may perceieve you differently based on you…
  • @Vastmind There is not quite a lot to find. At least now. On Romanian TV media, the news was barely mentioned ( maybe the news is still too 'raw' to be fed to the media ).
  • Flash news ! Some Romanian guys are solving the problem of blood donations as we speak. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2480236/Forget-prosthetic-limbs-theres-artificial-BLOOD-Liquid-water-salt-protein-successfully-used-mice.html
  • As someone who never leaves home without a skull and fresh supply of blood, I will be celebrating Halloween or its Pagan equivalent dharma style. Will you? Oh and yes I really do carry a skull and fresh blood ( my own ) :zombie: I won't celebra…
  • So if two people disagree is there a True truth or is it subjective for each person and both are true? My answer is this dry joke : two jews argue over something, and one tells the other 'you are not right !'. So they want to settle the argument a…
  • Everyone wants what they think is happiness, and some end up miserable and depressed when the thought of happiness just doesn't match what reality has to offer them. To be honest, life gives you some 'smaller selection' things that you mentioned, …
  • After antibiotics: what happens when the drugs don't work • Transplant surgery becomes virtually impossible. Organ recipients have to take immune-suppressing drugs for life to stop rejection of a new heart or kidney. Their immune systems cannot fig…
  • I looked into this as an alternative to tradition methods of dealing with cancer. And how did it work for you ? TCM accesses the natural energetic meridians of the body, which in turn are direct access channels to main organs and associated or…
  • @thegoldeneternity Edit : I know what Tiger balm is, and the ointment is quite similar, except for some components.
  • @genkaku To rephrase it : what if we didn't have to struggle to find enlightenment ? what if someone, at the right moment just put a test sheet in front of you and had a little time to answer questions ( short ones ) about your whole experience …
  • @thegoldeneternity I don't know what Tiger Balm is. And also, yes, I used that on myself and my patients ( animals and mostly humans) and the feedback was really good. The human 'patients' use it to treat muscle, joint and bone pain. For the animal…
  • Yeah, or life will let you cheat until you run out of options. And then there'll be the nail bite...
  • @thegoldeneternity As others said, you should take a little break. Also, use some ointment that contains menthol, camphor and isopropyl alcohol ( get a prescription from your GP medic), to cool the area and reduce the inflammatory process.
  • My cheater senses tell me that the time on any watch can be set either 'forward' or 'backwards'.
  • I don't want to be rude, but can you write the the main ideas here, please ?!
  • To answer to the title of this thread : not very free, and I will not be..never ever. Be it freedom from my own personality and senseless desires, freedom from the consequences of my actions and decisions or social and financial freedom, I'll never …
  • @MaryAnne I wanted to say not-enough-energy-to-start, but I would have cheated. I'll stick to fluids and B vitamin complex.
  • Do we have control over where we take birth, how we look, our height, color, etc.? Of course not. These thinngs just happen and we are in the middle of it. point is, things just happen, but because we are aware of them we mistakenly assume we have …
  • Meat is often infected with fecal matter. http://www.nltimes.nl/2013/09/04/often-fecal-bacteria-in-meat/ The cause is cost-effective production-methods and cutting on the costs of supervision. If you don’t eat it raw and if you don’t eat from the …
  • Bucharest, Romania
  • @Jeffrey You've foiled my plan. But thanks anyway
  • Found some anatomy books on some blog/site that shares veterinary books. Found one descriptive anatomy book, found a book that stands between anatomy and surgery ( has some well done pictures ) . And that's all I need for now.
  • Guys, problem solved ! Thank you all again !
  • @Jeffrey You talk about tetanus shot when you've got a deep and narrow wound, caused by a sting by something that had contact with dirt/mud, that will not allow oxygen to enter, thus making a good spot for anaerobic bacteria such as Clostridium tet…
  • 'Robot', they used to call me during my secondary school. Mainly because I always took A's where no one could, and secondary, because I tended not to 'stick with the herd', and this because I liked to draw things.
  • @ThailandTom The thing is, that dubbing also takes away the reading ( reading ?! on the TV screen ?! yeah right ! ) exercise that the viewer has to do.
  • I got a cut on my foot last Saturday. I saw the doctor and he gave me a weak of keflex and the wound is healing. I am puzzled because the bottle runs out this morning but the wound still hasn't fully healed. Do I need to go to the med station tom…
