Geheime Techniken werden im Karate oft angesprochen, bleiben jedoch weitgehend unerschlossen. Dieses Buch führt systematisch in die Geheimnisse der Kampfkunst ein und orientiert sich dabei an den Techniken aus den traditionellen Karate Kata. Langjährige Studien bei Meistern aus Japan und Okinawa und bei Spezialisten aus anderen Ländern liegen dem aktuellen Buch zu Grunde. Die Zusammenhänge zwischen Kyushotechniken, der chinesischen Akupunktur und der westlichen Vorstellung über neurologische Funktionen werden erklärt. Anhand neuartiger Grafiken wird der Einstieg für den Leser wesentlich erleichtert. Zahlreiche Varianten von Techniken aus der Selbstverteidigung werden systematisch dargestellt und didaktisch neu aufgearbeitet. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die geheimen Techniken, die in den Kata des Karate verschlüsselt sind. Die Praktikabilität der Bunkai (Anwendungen) aus den Kata entscheidet über den Sinn der jeweiligen Interpretation. Es ist der Weg zurück zu den Wurzeln. "Wer den Weg Fluss aufwärts nicht geht, wird nie zur Quelle gelangen."

DMT - Das Molekül des Bewusstseins

Zur Biologie von Nahtod-Erfahrungen und mystischen Erlebnissen

Author: Rick Strassman

Page: 459

Von 1990 bis 1995 führte Dr. Rick Strassman an der Universität New Mexico von der DEA genehmigte klinische Forschungen durch, bei denen er sechzig Freiwilligen DMT injizierte, eine der wirkungsvollsten psychedelischen Substanzen, die uns bekannt sind. Sein ausführlicher und detaillierter Bericht über diese Sitzungen ist eine faszinierende Erkundung der Natur des menschlichen Geistes und des therapeutischen Potenzials psychedelischer Substanzen. DMT, eine aus Pflanzen gewonnene Substanz, die auch vom Gehirn des Menschen gebildet wird, führte dabei immer wieder zu Nahtoderfahrungen und mystischen Erlebnissen. Viele der Freiwilligen berichteten von Begegnungen mit intelligenten, nicht-menschlichen Wesenheiten, insbesondere "Außerirdischen". Fast alle hatten das Gefühl, dass die Sitzungen zu den tiefsten Erfahrungen ihres Lebens gehörten. Strassmans Forschungen bringen DMT mit der Zirbeldrüse in Verbindung, die bei den Hindus als der Sitz des siebten Chakras gilt und von René Descartes als Sitz der Seele bezeichnet wurde. Das Buch führt Argumente für die kühne Behauptung an, dass auf natürliche Weise von der Zirbeldrüse freigesetztes DMT die Bewegung der Seele in den Körper hinein und aus ihm hinaus fördert und Bestandteil der Erfahrungen von Geburt und Tod ist; auch an höchsten Zuständen der Meditation und an transzendenten sexuellen Erlebnissen scheint es beteiligt zu sein. Klug angewendet, könnte DMT eine Periode bemerkenswerter Fortschritte in der wissenschaftlichen Erkundung der geheimnisvollsten mystischen Regionen der menschlichen Psyche und seines Seelenlebens einleiten.
