the great way is smooth

ocean surf wave tim mckenna

Because

I have a little wisdom,

I choose to walk the great path of Tao,

fearing nothing but to stray from it. The great

way is very smooth and easy, but some

people are fond of getting

sidetracked.

 

When

a ruler’s palace is full

of treasure, the people’s fields are

weedy and their granaries are empty.

If the ruler wears fancy clothes and his house is

full of weapons, if his table is laden with extravagant

food and drink and everywhere one looks he has

more wealth than he can use, the ruler is

a robber and thief. This is not

in keeping with

Tao.

at your center, the entire universe awaits

brian browne walker meditation
 

Looking for 

nothing in particular, 

wholly without ambition, 

good-naturedly doing not doing, 

you arrive at the center of 

yourself and find the 

whole universe  

waiting 

there.

when the merging occurs, there is nothing but god

kelly slater tube surf wave
 

Enlightenment

absorbs this universe of qualities.

When that merging occurs, there is nothing

but God. This is the only

doctrine.

 

There 

is no word for it, no

mind to understand it with, no categories of

transcendence or non-transcendence,

no vow of silence, no mystical

attitude.

 

There is

no Shiva and no Shakti in

enlightenment, and if there is something

that remains, that whatever-it-is is

the only teaching.

approach to sexuality = level of evolution

3esq
 

A person’s

approach to sexuality

is a sign of his level of evolution. 

Unevolved persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse.

Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body’s other

organs and systems. Whatever physical energy is accumulated is

summarily discharged, and the subtle energies are

similarly dissipated and disordered.

It is a great backward

leap.

 

For

those who aspire

to the higher realms of living,

there is angelic dual cultivation. Because

every portion of the body, mind, and spirit yearns

for the integration of yin and yang, angelic

intercourse is led by the spirit

rather than the sexual

organs.

 

…Angelic

cultivation unites

spirit with spirit, mind with

mind, and every cell of one

body with every cell

of the other

body.

 

Culminating

not in dissolution but in

integration, it is an opportunity for

a man and woman to mutually transform

and uplift each other into the

realm of bliss and

wholeness.

how to be when you’re naked (& when you’re not)

peregrine honig lovemaking

peregrine honig

In

angelic

dual cultivation, one

learns to follow the Tao. To

follow the Tao, you will need all your

sincerity, for it is elusive, first revealing

itself in form and image, then

dissolving into subtle,

indefinable

essence.

 

Though

it is uncreated itself,

it creates all things. Because it has

no substance, it can enter into where there

is no space. Exercising by returning to itself,

winning victories by remaining  gentle

and yielding, it is softer than

anything, and therefore

it overcomes

everything

hard.

 

What

does this tell

you about the benefit

of non-action and

silence?
