What is the Tao according to which filters
we prefer to employ? When it comes the Tao
of 'true eternity' there are few who are
interested.

It has been said:

“Sages are sages simply because of the application
of the principles of the I Ching. Application of
the I Ching is accomplished simply by openness and tranguility. When open, one takes in all; when
tranquil, one perceives all. When open, one can
accept things, when tranquil, one can respond to situations. If openness and tranquilitty are
continued for a long time, one becomes spiritually illumined.”

"The Tao of spiritual alchemy is none other than the Tao
of the I Ching, the Tao of sages is none other than the Tao
of immortals, and that the I Ching is not a book of devina-
tion but rather is the study of investigation of
principles, fulfillment of nature, and arriving at the
meaning of life."

Liu I-ming

"Although the words are very clear, yet they are also very
vague. The shallow may take the I Ching to be a book of
divination, but the profound consider it the secret of the
celestial mechanism."

"Whenever I see those whom the vulgar call devotees of the Tao,
I find that all of them seek to be taken in by spirits and immor-
tals, or they seek lasting life and preservation of wealth by the
practice of material alchemy or sexual yoga. When it comes to the
great Tao of true eternity, pure and open, tranquile and dispassionate,
there are few who are interested in it."

Lu Tung-pin

"When one attains what is properly nurtured in both action
and stillness, one can thereby seek fulfillment by
oneself... not relying on others."

There are no short cuts where harmony exist.
Building life apart from the conditioned mind
this discriminatory consciusness exist
only in temporal continuity which can not last.
Unaware of the unity underlying diversity
aberrant energy persist.
Physical, psychophysical or mental practice
conserve and circulate energy
taking over evolution
the four signs
strength, flexibility, awareness, and love combine.
This primal unconditioned awareness
the process of internal unification
assembled under the force of will
the five elements are assembled
truthfulness and sincerity harmonize
benevolence, justice, courtesy and wisdom.
Without triplex unity aberranted schools
become fixated on ritualistic forms or
become lost in the void of quitism.
Extraordinary fixations distract from
genuine intent whereby yin and yang
are combined deep within the dragon's abyss.

"When the fundamental is established, the path develops.
Once you recover your potential it is like it was always
there..."

Stillness is the substance of joy
joy is the function of stillness
sensitivity is the path of
harmonizing yin and yang
producing joy by stillness

“The true energy in people is like the master, acquired energy
is like the servant; getting entanglled in yin and
thus damaging the real with the artificial is feeding the
servant and losing the master…”
