“But the way to fill oneself with benevolence
and justice and taste enlightened qualities is all
in seeking by oneself, not relying on others.”

“Firmness abiding in flexibility, resting in its
proper place, action and stillness unified, one
is able to nurish the inner and the outer as well…”

“To advance the fire and employ illumination, it
is necessary to first illumine the inner; illumination
of the inner is refining the self.”

“Refining the self simply means refining the yin
within oneself. What is the yin? It is the
human mentality.”

“Then the true yin within oneself will become
manifest; when the true yin is manifest, the
open awareness of the mind is unobscured…”

“Therefore practioners of the Tao are cautious
and wary, and do not let any yin energy reside
in the heart, even subconsciously.”

“When emptiness and fulfillment are both used,
the path of doing and nondoing are consummated,
the work of nourishing correctness is completed.”

Beautiful Excerpts

I may become a fan of this book as I've really admired the refreshing excerpts that have been shared along with the other quotes. I find myself a bit confused though. Is the Taoist I Ching wholly different from the I Ching and the Tao Te Ching? I may have this figured out by the time you can answer, but just in case, a little clarity would be nice. So far I haven't been able to clear this up with my friend google....thanks

triplex unity in the firing process

That is a very good question. Traditionally the Taoist
I Ching was written as a teaching tool for adpts, what we discover from regular use is that it is a most authentic form of spiritual practice which is said to contain through triplex unity the entirety of the Tao. It is in my humble opinion the next best thing to the instruction of a true master written from a truly enlightened perspective.
