things themselves are your true self

among the myriad things is the hairy goosefish

 
All the myriad things are neither opposed to nor contrary to your true self. Directly pass through to freedom and they make one whole. It has been this way from time without beginning…

If you can cut off outward clinging to objects and inwardly forget your false ideas of self, things themselves are the true self, and the true self itself is things: things and true self are one suchness, operating through to infinity.

the sage has no set mind


 

The sage has no set mind.

She adopts the concerns

of others as her own.

 

She is good to the good.

She is also good to the bad.

This is real goodness.

 

She trusts the trustworthy.

She also trusts the untrustworthy.

This is real trust.

 

The sage takes the minds

of the worldly and spins them around.

People drop their ideas and agendas,

and she guides them like

beloved children.

without attachment

 

There 

is nothing that 

is impure, nothing in need of

elimination, no place to go, not a thing to

obtain. Shed the duality that you are a seeker 

in search of some attainment. Just be

as you are, without attachment

to anything, anyone,

any state, any

ideal.

nurturing a complete spirit

 

If people are able

to humbly lower themselves,

to be yielding, plain, and sincere,

not wasting energy but always nurturing energy,

then they will be full of energy. If people can be free from

cogitation and rumination, not belabor their spirit

but always maintain their spirit,

then their spirit will be

complete.

 

Liu I-Ming

a highly evolved individual integrates yin & yang

prince rogers nelson, stealth philanthropist

 

The first

integration of yin and yang

is the union of seed and egg within the womb.

The second integration of yin and yang is the sexual union

of the mature male and female. Both of these are

concerned with flesh and blood, and all

that is conceived in this realm must

one day disintegrate

and pass

away.

 

It is only

the third integration

which gives birth to something immortal.

In this integration, a highly evolved individual joins

the subtle inner energies of yin and yang under the light of spiritual

understanding. Through the practices of the Integral Way he refines his

gross, heavy energy into something ethereal and light. This divine

light has the capability of penetrating into the mighty

ocean of spiritual energy and complete

wisdom that is

the Tao.

 

The new life

created by the final integration

is self-aware yet without ego, capable of

inhabiting  a body yet not attached to it, and guided

by wisdom rather than emotion. Whole

and virtuous, it can

never die.
