The Source Of The Being
The Wisdom of the Tao Te Ching
- COSMOS - THE
CALL IT WHATEVER YOU LIKE - IT IS A HOLLOW RECIPIENT
THE USE OF WHICH IS ENDLESS
AND WHEN YOU DRAW UPON ITS SOURCE
IT SERVES YOU WITH EASE
THE VALLEY SPIRIT NEVER DIES - IT IS CALLED THE MYSTICAL FEMALE
IT IS THE ROOT OF HEAVEN AND EARTH
LIFE IS INTERDEPENDENCE OF OPPOSITES -
HOW IS HEAVEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT HELL
ACCEPT THEM BOTH THEN LIFE WILL BECOME A SYMPHONY OF THE OPPOSITES
NO NEED TO MEDITATE,
SIMPLY LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IT COMES
ENJOY THE MOMENT AND DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURE OR THE PAST
WILL BE BEAUTIFUL WHEN PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT BEAUTY
BECAUSE THEN THERE WILL BE NO UGLINESS
THE ABSENCE OF THE SELF - THE ABSENCE OF PRIDE GIVES BIRTH TO BEAUTY
THE WISE MAN GETS THE BOTTOM OF THINGS WITHOUT ACTION
THE WISE MAN DOES NOT
DOES NOT REJECT ANYTHING - DOES NOT ABANDON ANYTHING
TO REJECT SOMETHING IS TO ANTAGONIZE EXISTENCE
THE ART OF EXISTING IS THE ART OF ABSORBING EVERYTHING
AND IF YOU DON’T CLAIM
ANYTHING BACK, YOU ARE
INCONTESTABLE AND NO ONE CAN COMPETE AGAINST YOU
DO NOT TRY TO BE VICTORIOUS, THEN NOBODY CAN DEFEAT YOU
YOUR VICTORY WILL BE ABSOLUTE!
Suddenly you realize
that life itself comes
looking for you, to share her secrets with you.
If you are empty everything will come to you!
THOU SHALT NOT KNOCK
AND YOU WILL REALIZE THAT THE DOOR WAS ALWAYS OPEN
OBSERVE: AND IF YOU UNDERSTAND, YOU CAN OPEN ALL THE LOCKS OF LIFE.
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LOVE AND BE LOVED, YOU MUST DISAPPEAR,
YOU MUST LEAVE, LIMPIDLY LEAVING NOTHING BEHIND
AND THEN THE FLOWER OF LOVE CAN BLOSSOM.
LIVE TO WAKE UP TO THE ECSTASY, WHICH BELONGS TO YOU
WHICH IS NATURALLY ACCESSIBLE FO YOU
RELIGION IS THE PURSUE OF THE SACRED IN EVERY THING
|MOVE AROUND IN THE WORLD – AS IF YOU WERE NOT THERE|
REMAIN UNKNOWN, USELESS AND ENJOY YOUR LIFE
Life must be poetry, a song, a dance, like a flower on the roadside,
blossoming for no one in particolare, but spreading its fragrance in the wind,
and sending it anywhere ...
LAO TZU IS NOT RELIGIOUS - HE NEVER
ENTERED A TEMPLE
BECAUSE TO HIM THE WHOLE EXISTENCE IS A TEMPLE
SINNERS OFTEN REACH THE DIVINE, AND
SAINTS WENT ASTRAY
THE SINNER NEVER EXPECTS ANYTHING BUT HE IS FULL
OF GRATITUDE – HE IS HUMBLE AND FEELS THE GRACE OF GOD
saints always moaned in pain and gave up the joys of life
yet bliss did not come unto them! They live in celibacy, yet
flowers have not been raining down on them...
Lao Tzu lives God - does not talk about him! He enjoys him, celebrates him and dances him ...
|A MYSTICAL MAN NEVER FEARS ANYTHING!|
DO YOU KNOW, BY ANY CHANCE, THAT DEATH IS EVIL?
KNOW BY ANY CHANCE THAT DEATH IS WORSE THAN LIFE?
IT MIGHT BE BETTER THAN LIFE - YOU FEAR DEATH WITHOUT HAVING MET HER.
HOLLOW IS THE KEY WORD FOR LAO TZU
HOLLOW MEANS SPACE; MEANS
VASTNESS - INEXHAUSTIBILITY;
EVERYTHING COMES OUT OF NOTHING, IS BORN FROM ZERO AND FALLS BACK INTO NOTHING.
IF GOD WERE NOT HOLLOW HE COULD NOT BE INEXHAUSTIBLE.
Lao Tzu teaches: Look inside not
The hollow inside, "THE EMPTINESS" is your being!
GOD IS THE HOLLOW INSIDE EVERYTHING
THE MEANING OF MEDITATION IS TO BECOME HOLLOW AND EMPTY
WITHOUT ONE SINGLE THOUGHT FLYING ABOUT - PURE SPACE
THEN ALL THE SUFFERINGS FADE
also death disappears ...
AS DEATH EXISTS IN THOUGHTS
SO KARMA SHALL NOT TOUCH YOU
THE VALLEY SPIRIT NEVER
DIES - IT IS THE SPIRIT OF EMPTINESS
THE NOTHING IS INDESTRUCTIBLE
Once you have let yourself fall in that emptiness,
you will laugh and will discover that,
DEATH DOES NOT EXIST
is feminine, a Lao Tzu is feminine and Jesus is feminine.
A feminine man lives in no hurry and enjoys every moment with no hurry.
TO LAO TZU, TO BE BALANCED IS TO BE VIRTUOUS.
TO BE OFF BALANCE IS TO BE IN SIN. SO ALWAYS BE YOUNG AND FRESH, NEVER HEAVY, NEVER TIRED
BALANCE WILL CONFER ETERNAL LIFE ON YOU
It depends on you;
IF YOUR INTENSITY IS TOTAL, YOU CAN ARRIVE THERE SUDDENLY. IF YOUR DESIRE IS TOTAL,
IN ITS FIRE ALL THE LAYERS THAT COVER COMPREHENSION SHALL BURN
AND SUDDENLY THE LIGHT WILL SHINE ...
but it depends on you!
WAITING IN SILENCE
Lao Tzu says:
Stretch a bow to its limit and you will regret not to have stopped in time!
A BOW CAN BREAK
NEVER STRETCH A BOW TO ITS LIMIT
FOR DEATH IS ALWAYS THE LIMIT!
In a sword-edge sharpened to its very sharpest the edge will not last long ...
PERFECTION IS DEATH
LOVES IMPERFECTIONS, SO STAY IMPERFECT
AND YOU WILL STAY ALIVE - THOSE WHO DO NOT WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW
WILL BECOME IMMORTAL
LOGIC BELONGS TO THE DEAD - TO DEATH - NOT TO LIFE
ALL THAT IS FIXED IS DEAD.
NO ONE HAS EVER MANAGED
TO EXPERIMENT THE ABSURDITY OF THE MIND TO ITS FULLEST
THE ABSURDITY OF THE MIND IS ENDLESS
THERE IS NO NEED TO GIVE UP
ANYTHING IN THE WORLD
ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS CONSCIOUSNESS
Deep breathing absorbs death
and creates a bridge. Make use of life, but also of death.
Sanctity means to be life and death at the same time. If you can pass trough death dancing, happy, enjoying it,
nothing can destroy you anymore. You have reached the eternal the indestructible and immortal!
DEATH CAN BE DEFEATED ONLY WITH A LAUGH COMING FROM DEEP INSIDE
DEATH WILL NOT DESTROY YOU, BUT WILL BE AT YOUR SERVICE
AND LEAD YOU TO IMMORTALITY
A wise man is open like heaven,
he is pure openness; he is free to mingle with anybody,
like muddy water.
REAL LIFE IS A TORCH BURNING AT BOTH ENDS, IT IS A FLAME,
ALWAYS SURROUNDED BY DANGER, IT IS SURROUNDED BY DEATH
IN THAT CONTEXT LIFE REACHES ITS CLIMAX
BUT DO NOT SEE THE EXISTENCE AS A FIGHT - BUT AS JOY
AND CELEBRATION IT IS ENDLESS
Be more poetical! Meditation is nothing but writing love letters to life ...
If you totally say yes to existence, this is the greatest meditation you can devote yourself to. Be brave and do not run away from anything! Go and do not worry! If life takes you off road, just follow it! The same energy that takes you off road will bring you back. At the end you will find out that all that you have done so far makes sense.
IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY HELL – EXPLORE HELL! IT MEANS
|THAT IT IS PART OF YOUR DESTINY, THAT IS NECESSARY FOR YOUR GROWTH|
WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF IN
THE MIDDLE OF A LACERATING PROBLEM
YOU WOULD LIKE TO FLEE... BUT THAT WAY, YOU MISS OUT ON SOMETHING
THAT WOULD HAVE BECOME A PART OF THE FINAL HARMONY
Only through totality you can transcend,
you can transform. Live your life in all its dimensions!
Totally let yourself go and in the end you will find that all was useful.
Upon your death you can
bless everybody; friends and enemies.
Yes, enemies too, because without them you could not have reached
this growth. They too were part in this phenomenon ...
... by the name of "Life”
It is beautiful
to die for what you believe;
who fears, dies every day - who is not afraid
