Someone asked: “What is the core of being a monk?”

Yunmen said: “This monk over there shall come forward!”

The monk came forward.

Yunmen said: “Bah! Go!”

 

 

 

 

(I believe, this koan stems from the Biyan Lu compilation, 11th century, compiled by Xueduo Chongxian, a monk of Yunmen)

Not sure what you mean but I define monk my way. 

I am a follower of Stoicism. As a philosophy it’s not just about holding the knowledge in your head, it’s about applying the principles. 

There are 4 core virtues the Stoics follow,

 

wisdom 

courage 

justice

temperance

Stiocism advise that we should be brutally introspective and work on ourselves daily in the attempt to become a ‘stoic sage’ that being the perfect version of you  

The stoics say that the perfect version of you is unattainable but even so we should not be put off trying because the attempt will improve us. 

So being monk for me is not so much about being a MGTOW monk - it’s more about adopting some aspects of the way of a MGTOW monk in order to maximise my success at becoming a stoic Sage. I am a long long way off and accept that I will never be one nut like the stoics say - the attempt is its own reward.

I'm monk because I don't like being held as an emotional hostage to the whirlwinds of modern women backed by law and order, it's mandated insanity! 

Alone and on my way is so much better than living in gynocentric prison.

Monk (loosely interpreted) means range of freedom and possibilities, while I was inverted on skis and flying without wings, other men were being handed life sentences to gynocentric slavery! That's one of the common thoughts in my head when I'm skiing, I could be there instead of here in the super pipe, terrain park, or back country freshies kicking up rooster tails!

As far as I'm concerned, you haven't lived until you've tried being rear man doing powder 8's on steep terrain with your best friend!  

I thank God I made the choice to live life and live it well!

Your answers are much appreciated and enjoyable; DocDJ and Tower are on their way! Thanks for pointing this out in your own words.

 

One has to go on his own two.

Go!

Not perfect, there's the altitude sickness for a couple days! They should have pressurized hotels to combat it! Aspirin helps but only time for your blood chemistry to change actually cures it. First couple days you really feel it at 12,000 ft., then for me it subsides below 7,000 plus you can actually watch your skin boiling off the humidity above 10,000. I drink way more water than normal! 

You can't boil potatoes at that altitude without a pressure cooker, the boiling temperature of water drops substantially!   

I'm a sea level dweller, I need my air thick and compressed. Some skiers bring their own oxygen, I just get weak, exhausted, then try to catch my breath naturally aspirated wishing I had a supercharger on my back with a snorkel.  You can't even hyperventilate! That's what I do just to catch my breath! 

Sunblock is a must! Otherwise any exposed skin is burned by the excessive ultra violet radiation and turns lobster red.

Core of being monk is not letting the past mistakes happen again. I will never again trust a woman in the future. I will never place myself in a position of weakness or subservience to a woman again. No woman will ever take anything away from me ever again. I am unmoved by a woman's touch. In fact, I am repulsed. I will do my best to avoid unnecessary contact. My primary directive in life is evade and survive. I participate in a system that will crush me to a minimal degree. Until I can earn enough money to be independent and off the grid, I will work within the system.

Fair point Tower. I take on board what you are pointing out. 

But despite the issues you mention I find it attractive to be able to spend my days up a mountain. 

When I am not in work or with my kids I try to get out and up the local mountains and hills.

That red dude in the photo reminds me of when I went to a bar in Springfield Ma a few months ago with my buddies. I showed up late and my 3 black friends wanted to drink to celebrate cause they hadn’t seen me in a while. We ended up in a Italian bar that was open, if I am not wrong Italians don’t like black people, not over there at least. 2 of my black friends are loud rude and arrogant especially when drinking. The bar lady who was pretty hot made us feel comfortable, so my friends started making jokes, my friend said to a lady sitting their with her man, about her skin color, that she looked like a lobster. Her skin was red a hell, she looked like that dude in your photo but worse. She was not laughing.

.

We noticed some funny movements from inside the bar. We ended up leaving unharmed. But we almost ended up like the bikers in this scene.

#Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)

An important and practical description. Do not let a system, that is designed to crush and suck you dry, take the better of you.

Do not give in to it, as your energy will serve someone other than you, someone without having your best interest in mind.

Would I be unmoved by a woman’s touch, today? No, I probably would feel the repulsion, which you mentioned, and that would be the answer.

I am, where you are in your journey, as in participation in the system (on an outsider’s post), yet aiming at the off-grid exit.

I must be doing something right if psychologists are doing it too! 

Hey Kittymaster, I love that clip! I worked for mobsters and learned a closed mouth is better than an open one! They taught me respect without uttering a word! 

That bar scene is exactly what they'll do to you if you piss down their leg! You will surly be hospitalized or very cold with a tag tied to your big toe!

Absolutely Correct Tower. I do it because I like to get away from people. Spend some time in a remote location. 

I go for YOMPs. A military term which stands for Your Own Marching Pace. I also call them straighteners because while I cross a mountain it’s a chance to think without all the distractions of society. It straightens my mind out. 

If society and people get inside my head, my straightener helps me get them back out so I can think more clearly.

P.S. 

We did work on one of the hierarchy's son's Corvette, it was perfect. The son complained and tried to weasel down the amount owned. 

He flexed his mobster muscle on my father and uncle.  

His father showed in a black Cadillac limo with the classic 8 other guys! 

He looked over the car carefully, said he saw nothing wrong with it, walked over to his son, and started slapping him silly! I mean gut wrenching slaps! Out the door he went wobbling and stumbling! 

His father wrote us a check, had his son go sit in the car, and one of the big bad 8 took his son's Corvette! (I wonder if he had it crushed and  shredded?).

I could write book and title it (close encounters with the mob) shit you not! I grew up with them in my neighborhood, the neighborhood from my adolescence and young adult that wasn't condemned!   

KMB has been there, except now it's turned over to Asians, Puerto Ricano's and blacks, with the whites now being the minority. 

The cultural war is real, it's white people for the slaughter, you can tell by the radiating hatred instilled in many people with dark skin, they're the real racists and they will kill you for entering their turf, they're very hostile, like they're rabid. Thank the single mother welfare state and television. 

The old mobsters had principles, honor, mutual respect, family, and order. 

The new gangstas have none of this, they're wild animals the frequent and populate the prison system, the single mother welfare system has produced generations of monster citizens filled with resentment and hatred toward one particular race. 

The laws of the land reflect this no matter the prism it's viewed from.

Nobody can argue the truth, all they can do is continue to be naive, arrogant, and ignorant, in other words, a fool...

We are allot alike, you and I, these truth you speak are striking! 

I also have closely analyzed my mind to ponder why I love skiing above all else, my mind becomes void of all psychological stress and deeper thinking, the intellect fades out completely and everything becomes focused on the present moment about a three second span, the past, the present, and the future, 1, 2, 3, no more, no less, it's all about coordinated focus, timing, and precision, it's truly a form of Perer Pan flying and leaping down the mountain, when I see the mountain without snow it's  shocking to see how steep and dangerous it is without snow! Two hours hiking DOWN is equivalent to one run in a matter of minutes!

If the snow magically disappeared doing the center freestyle ramp at full velocity (to stick the landing) your body would be smashed and broken on the rocks and ledge! Same with the cliffs, they're scary without any snow! 

Here's a shot I took of the Green Mtns national forest from Chittenden reservoir looking south on Pico ski resort from the snowmobile trail, behind it Killington peak. I spent all my free time in the mountains whenever I could! My first climb was Mount Monadnock, from there I saw allot of other peaks and I was hooked! Now I can point to all of them from anywhere and tell you their names! In other words, I can't get lost!

I agree with you Tower - we are a lot like  

I think we have the same sort of character. 

 

Those mountains are absolutely awesome Tower. 

 

The local-ish mountains to me are the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.

It looks like a mtn biker's paradise! Nowhere around here is there that much free range of direction, some of the forest is so thick you struggle to get through it! You come out scratched and bleeding!

You found it Tower. 

That is Pen Y Fan. The SAS train there. Ha ha I dont think it’s me . 

There are many a wooded area on the lower lying hills and mountains. A lot of forestry commission land. 

A few big Resevoirs too. Talybont is one. Another is called Ponttiscill. It might spelled Pontsticill. Welsh words are a head fuck.

Hay Bluffs are another good haunt. 

Head out from a Town called Abergavenny that sits between a few mountains, the Skirrid, the Sugar Loaf and the Blorenge and follow an old monks trail from one of the oldest pubs in Britain called the Skirrid inn through a place called Capel Y Fin . The trail brings you out between Hay Bluffs  a beautiful place the view is indescribable from there  

I can’t remember how old the Skirrid Inn is off the top of my head but it’s something close to 900 years
