From the forgotten city of Ubar in the Rub al Khali, a trackless expanse of desert in southern Arabia, to the mystical and long-abandoned stronghold of Meda’in Saleh in northeastern Saudi Arabia, and its sister city, Petra, in southern Iraq. Across Afghanistan, Iran, and Egypt, ruins of ancient sites are still believed by many to harbor realms of the djinn. It is in Ubar that the primordial dwelling place of the djinn purportedly originated — a city once known as Irem of the Pillars and which has carried forward in time as the unseen djinn kingdom of Jinnistan.

Back Issues for you to Surf Thru 
Excellence is an art won by training and
habituation. We do not act rightly because
we have virtue or excellence, but rather we
have those because we have acted rightly.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence,
then, is not an act but a habit.
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the  people who don't do anything about it."
                               - Albert Einstein 
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better start running.
                                     African proverb
At every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss...

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men. The little man has no way to judge and the shoddy lies are packaged more attractively. Robert Heinlein (Assignment in Eternity)
The unforgivable crime is soft hitting.  Do not hit at all if it can be avoided; but never hit softly.  ~Theodore Roosevelt ~
The personal, as everyone's so fucking fond of saying, is political. So if some idiot politician, some power player, tries to execute policies that harm you or those you care about, take it personally. Get angry. The Machinery of Justice will not serve you here - it is slow and cold, and it is theirs. Only the little people suffer at the hands of Justice; the creatures of power slide out from under with a wink and a grin. If you want justice, you will have to claw it from them. Make it personal. Do as much damage as you can. Get your message across. That way you stand a far better chance of being taken seriously next time. Of being considered dangerous. And make no mistake about this: being taken seriously, being considered dangerous, marks the difference - the only difference in their eyes- between players and little people. Players they will make deals with. Little people they liquidate. And time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal execution with the ultimate insult that it's just business, it's politics, it's the way of the world, it's a tough life, and that it's nothing personal.
Well, fuck them. Make it personal.'

Things I Should Have Learned By Now Vol II 

Especially when preparing for actual combat, these few seconds of preamble allow you to settle your equilibrium, to draw upon your self-confidence, to face without emotion that sword point which threatens you, and to allay the first involuntary movement of anxiety which, in such cases, the strongest nature must endure for a moment. Moreover, you have been able to entrap your adversary in a comprehensive glance of observation, and to draw your own conclusions from his position, from his handling of the sword, and from the general way in which he offers battle.
This renders it worth your while to stand for a few minutes even out of pistol shot.

I have now made you as wise as myself upon the subject of moving the body and the limbs, which indeed is all the mechanism of swordsmanship. A few words before we separate. Why have these positions and these movements been chosen, been universally approved of by the civilised world? The reply is because they are intuitive and instinctive. See how the races that use the knife naturally seize it with the right hand, drape the cloak round the left arm, and, under cover of the body, prepare the weapon for a fatal thrust. " I'm certain," Shughtie said, " that they are wrong. Have the cloak if you like, it may always be useful, but hold your bowie-point to the fore as if it were a sword. Why, man, you've quoted Achille Marozzo, and already you forget hie principles. There are two common ways of using the knife underhand and overhand. Underhand is rare, being easily stopped; overhand, if you treat it as I would, may be received upon the point. An acquaintance of mine had a third way, which was not without its merits. He rejoiced in the sobriquet of ' Flat-footed Jack,' being, or rather having been, one of Her Gracious Majesty's hard naval bargains. The Argentine gargotti's not a bad place for knife practice. The Flat-footed in his cups would quarrel with hie own hat; hence many a difficulty. When cuchillos are drawn Senor Spaniard, old or new hemisphere, hae a silly habit of showing off. The world must see the curved beauties of his deadly blade. It's like the Tartar prince, who by herald informs the kings of the earth that they may dine, as he has finished his meal of mare's milk. And it's quite unlike the sensible Japanese, who, holding the scabbard in the left hand, draws hie sword with so little loss of time that he opens his man from belt to shoulder." A very old manoeuvre of the Italian and German schools, I interposed. " Well," resumed Shughtie, " while the particular Don was intent upon his gambado, Flat-footed Jack suddenly let fly at him a perfectly straight thrust with a common whittle some 6in. long, and worth when new 4d. He was only careful to put his thumb along the bone handle. Of course, every blow killed. I should be afraid to name the number of our countryman's triumphs." This was a long speech for Shughtie. I knew that he would not readily do it again, and resumed. Such, then, is the rule of the sword we will drop the knife - and it is based upon nature and truth, upon practice and experience.

"Laying down tricks in the form of wavy lines, circles, and cross-marks on the ground is an old African custom that came to America in slavery times. Spitting into the design activates it, and when the enemy walks over the powder, he or she is said to be "poisoned through the feet," bringing on a Jinx and creating Crossed Conditions that result in all-around bad luck and long-lasting illness."

Even a few minutes of using the left hand more fluently than the right can reverse right-handers' judgments of good and bad, making them think that the left is the 'right side' of space. Conceptions of good and bad are rooted in people's bodily experiences, and change when patterns of bodily experience change.

The man who is calm does not selfishly isolate himself from the world, for he is intensely interested in all that concerns the welfare of humanity. His calmness is but a Holy of Holies into which he can retire from the world to get strength to live in the world. He realizes that the full glory of individuality, the crowning of his self-control is—the majesty of calmness

Here’s the easiest way to ground yourself:  Go barefoot on Earth – walk, lie down, stand, or sit in a chair with your feet on the ground for awhile each day. You could begin with just twenty minutes daily…longer and more often is even better. On damp earth or at water’s edge is best, as moisture enhances conductivity. Our tissues know how to ‘soak up’ and use these electrons so that, over time, our bodies may recharge and heal.

The sentiment du fer is that supreme art of digitation which is to the complete swordsman what the touch of the pulse is, or rather was, to the old physician who disclaims the newfangled thermometer. It begins to make itself felt as soon as the blades come into contact. Essential to the highest development of our art, it is the result of happy natural disposition, of long study, and of persevering attention. To the hand it gives lightness and that indescribable finesse which guide the cue of the billiard player; to the passes it communicates quickness directed by an appreciation of the case which can hardly be subjected to analysis. It is that mysterious résumé of delicate manipulation, of practised suppleness in wrist and forearm, and of precision in movement, which makes the adversary feel powerless before it, which startles at the same time that it commands him. No quality in a swordsman is more rarely found in any degree approaching perfection. To say that I have not the highest admiration of it would be to set myself down in the lowest ranks of materialism -- as the world understands the word. But its very potency suggests the absolute necessity of providing against it when we find so rare a gift opposed to us.

This is not a training film per se, it is a Docu-project about a man's journey (Terry) and his quest for life's meanings and truths via the path of steel. (Ferro Veritas).  I am myself, the teacher.
Filmed in New York, Texas, Oregon, Hells Canyon, Sacred sites and more. The horse scene at my place (in the pasture) was impromtu, the horses sort of fell in with the whole vibe of the film. They "knew their roles well" ya might say. It is a different venue for me for sure. But it came out quite well, 
I am pleased and I think you also shall be pleased. JAK

By pressing or squeezing the sides of the fingers, according to your needs, you can affect both the emotion and the corresponding organ. This is how the fingers work:
    The thumb represents the element earth, the stomach and worry.

    The index finger represents the element metal, the lungs, the large intestine and the emotions depression, sadness and grief.

    The middle finger is the element fire, the heart, small intestine, circulatory and respiratory systems, the emotions are impatience and hastiness.

    The ring finger is the element wood and is connected to the liver, gall bladder, nervous system and corresponds to anger.

    The little finger corresponds to water, the kidneys and fear.
Massage the Finger in Accord with your current state of mind (emotion) to abolish and control such self hindering emotions!

Its history is full of folklore and legend, but here we only summarize it briefly: Until the Spanish monarchy favored among his subjects the custom to carry a sword, sometimes coming up to make it mandatory, they are not traces of navaja.
This is often done by the instructor holding the hands of the student as the jinn's pass through the finger tips or by pointing his fingers at their foreheads at the position commonly known as the "Third Eye" (Hinduism & Buddhism faculty of insight often associated with paranormal activity and Islamically position at which the soul (rou'h) extricates the body). The finger nails serve as motorways for the jinn's facilitating ease of entry and exit. Yet all this can be done while the instructor is some distance away from the student controlling them like a puppeteer or rather telekinesis, pulling students in or pushing them away with just a gesture. More convincingly, most of the time they are unaware of he's gestures and often looking in the other direction.

During the daytime, we see shadow but do not notice light. During the night, we see light but do not notice shadow. A breath contains two aspects: “heng” and “ha”. (Once your skill is deep, you will be able to do this as a single breath, or with but an action of your navel.) One who is highly skilled in solo and partner practice will often unexpectedly utter these sounds. 
They have three principles:
     1. Make your internal energy comfortable, without the errors of forcing it or injuring yourself.
     2. Make your internal power course through your whole body without the slightest obstruction.
     3. Make the opponent become panicked, which causes his movement to become disorganized, his mind to become dazed, his advance and retreat to lose its effectiveness, and he is rendered unable to defend himself, giving you the opportunity to catch him off-guard. Therefore the two tricks of “heng” and “ha” are extremely useful and you will need to understand them. “Heng” is usually used when drawing in and neutralizing (inhaling). “Ha” is usually used when seizing and issuing (exhaling).
We are at a crossroads of spacetime and illusion. Our conversations with other dreamweavers have led to an unveiling of ultra-sentient consciousness. The goal of chaos-driven reactions is to plant the seeds of potentiality rather than bondage. To roam the quest is to become one with it.

A Brief Maajak World Study on those beings known as "The DJINN"
From JAK: My own interest in things about the Djinn really ignited after reading an article on Kent Steadman's page. Prior to that posting  I had only heard the term and knew more about "Genies" from Hollywood movies than I did from any historical or religious perspective. But once I had read that article I developed an keen interest in knowing more about this race of fire-born beings. No matter if it is superstition or fact, I just wanted to learn more. The reason is thus: In my life, my travels and experiences I have been witness to things that cannot be easily explained away. Some of the things that returning troops have told me while they were in the land of Jinn's sends cold chills up the spine. So it is a mystery, a worthy enuff mystery to ponder and be aware of.  Some say that there are good Jinn as well as bad. In some cases a friendship is struck between Jinn and Man and wonderous things occur on both sides of the hidden veil. Que sera, sera!

The challenge for these magicians was to conjure the djinn and in a reverse exorcism or mass curse send them to enter the bodies of their marks. Abbas Ghaffari was described as Ahmadinejad’s “exorcist” or “jinn (genie) catcher” and allegedly had the ability to do a spell or a “working” of transference to an unsuspecting victim. Transference is literally the ability to conjure a spirit and then place it in a bottle, or another container including a human one.

In Forum after forum, in articles and on youtube you hear the same old shit: "under stress fine motor skills deteriorate and only gross motor skills are left". Repeated by retards and psuedo-experts until the ears bleed and the eye's go blind. Yet we see performers under pressure carry off incredible feats. We see pilots do the same, we see many, many things which speak the truth. Yet, a few idiots control YOUR mind and abilities with their pathetic self limiting rhetoric. Fine skills in warrior-world go to hell due to laziness and stupidity, not due to stress or pressure !

“It is believed that in the midst of a fight, a bull can find his own area of safety in the arena. There he can reclaim his strength and power. This place and inner state are called his querencia. As long as the bull remains enraged and reactive, the matador is in charge. Yet when he finds querencia, he gathers his strength and loses his fear. From the matador’s perspective, at this point, the bull is truly dangerous, for he has tapped into his power.” ~Tara Brach, Ph.D.
