Wei wu Wei Ching

Wei wu Wei Ching puts a collection of diamond cutting tools in the pocket of anyone who wants to realize enlightenment, the Self, Big Mind. While realization ultimately cannot be surrounded or captured with words, along the way they have power. It is possible to catalyze the transformation of ordinary understanding into Diamond Mind with them. 

The text is configured as an oracular text, just like the I Ching, to facilitate concentration upon a particular teaching with respect to a specific question. It centers primarily around wei wu wei, the ancient Taoist notion that translates roughly to “doing not-doing”. By whatever name or not-name, this practice is the core teaching of every enlightenment tradition in the world. 

Enlightenment is a real thing, the realest thing, the pearl beyond all other pearls. The emphasis on doing non-doing here stems from the universal understanding across the world’s spiritual cultures that attaining it is more often a matter of leaning back into it than of bearing down upon it.

The teachings of the Wei wu Wei Ching are sourced in Tao, Ch’an, Zen, Sufism, Native American spirituality, Tibetan Buddhism, Advaita, yoga, and other traditions less easily named. They come from the mountains of China, the monasteries of Japan, the clouds above Persia, a red road in Montana, the jungles of the Amazon, the earth of the Earth.

No teacher 

or master is in possession 

of your enlightenment. Ultimately 

only you can free yourself. Just shed your 

delusions like a sweaty shirt and slip into the 

stream of zen and tao, empty minded, 

quiet hearted, at rest in the midst 

of everything and at peace 

with all that

occurs.

 

Polish

yourself  on your

own over and over until

you disappear, and you’ll wake up 

right where you are. You’ll see straight 

through the snares of the world and

pass freely into complete 

realization.

    Hi Brian. I have your Yi Jing and Hua Hu Ching books. They are some of my favorite Taoist books. I live in Estes Park and study here under a grandmaster and Taoist priest. We are having a healing arts festival here next Sept and would love to invite you to be a speaker. And, I would love to come down to Boulder and meet you if possible and either have a cup of tea with you or take you to lunch. I also am purchasing some books for friends I would love you to sign.
    Sincerely, Laura Commers

    Hi Laura, I’m glad you like those little books. I don’t live in Boulder anymore, and I don’t have a clue where I’ll be next September, but I’d be happy to sign books for you anytime. Email me at brian *at* this site for a mailing address. Lunch/tea dependent on stars but welcome. :) BW
