Hua hu Ching ☯️ Chapter 78


There are

many partial religions,

and then there is the Integral Way. 

Partial religions are desperate, clever, human

inventions; the Integral Way is a deep expression of the pure,

whole, universal mind. Partial religions rely on the hypnotic manipulation

of undeveloped minds; the Integral Way is founded on the free

transmission of the plain, natural, immutable truth.

It is a total reality, not an

occult practice. 


The Integral Way

eschews conceptual fanaticism,

extravagant living, fancy food, violent music.

They spoil the serenity of one’s mind and obstruct one’s

spiritual development. Renouncing what is fashionable and embracing

what is plain, honest, and virtuous, the Integral Way returns you

to the subtle essence of life. Adopt its practices and you

will become like they are: honest,

simple, true, virtuous,



You see,

in partial pursuits,

one’s transformation is always

partial as well. But in integral self-cultivation,

it is possible to achieve a complete metamorphosis,

to transcend your emotional and biological

limitations and evolve to

a higher state of



By staying

out of the shadows and

following this simple path, you become

extraordinary, unfathomable, a being of profound

cosmic subtlety. You outlive time and space

by realizing the subtle truth

of the universe.
