What is the Tao and where did it come from ?
Let us look
In ancient China, the keeper of the Imperial Library,
Lao Tzu, was famous for his wisdom.
Perceiving the growing corruption of the government,
he left for the countryside.
On his way, the guard at the city gates asked Lao Tzu to write out
the essence of his understanding
to benefit future generations.
Lao Tzu wrote the Tao Te Ching, he left, and was never heard of again.
THE TAO TE CHING
The Tao Te Ching (also called "The Tao", "The Dao" or the "Dao De Jing"),
by Lao Tzu, is one of the most influential books in history.
It is the source of famous Chinese sayings such as:
"Those who know do not speak, those who speak, do not know"
"Even a 1,000 mile journey starts with a single step".
TAO MEDITATION IN DARKNESS
Here at Hidden Meanings we use music in meditation.
In addition we also turn this room into a dark room to allow
the melatonin to flow from the pineal.
Now we find we have been in harmony with what is known as the Taoist Darkness Experience.
The Tao says, "When you go into the dark and this becomes total,
the darkness soon turns into light.
The Tao says, our mind and soul begin to wander freely in the
base realms of psychic and spiritual experience.
When you enter this primordial state you are reunited with
the true self and divinity within.
You literally conduct the universal energy.
You may see into the past and future, understand the true meaning of existence
and begin to understand the order of things.
You return to the womb, the cocoon of our material structure
and nature's original darkness.
OUR MEDITATION WAY IS CONFIRMED
We have found that our teachings on spiritual possession
nd the use of music in meditation is confirmed by the most
ancient of writings in Kabbala, and now we see that our meditation in darkness
is supported by the most ancient writing of the East, the Tao.
THE UNIVERSAL TAO CENTER
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THEIR SITE
There is a most interesting Tao website called the Universal Tao Center
and the information which is provided and correlates to the Tao
is information that we have studied together here for years
but it is well to see that it has deep roots and has been confirmed elsewhere.
These are concepts that I am not saying are scientifically accurate though they may be.
I think they are interesting enough to consider.
What you have here is a comment on the Tao instructions and knowledge
of the workings of the electro brain and
how the two can be compared.
This Is From The Universal Tao Center
We descend into the void, into the darkness of deep, inner space.
Darkness activates the deepest centers within the brain, the glands of the Crystal Palace,
establishing a connection with the Original Source, the Wu Chi.
The pineal gland connects us to the Universal Energy.
From the hypothalamus gland, we project our soul or spirit upwards,
and receive the descending Universal Energy.
The pituitary gland receives the Cosmic Force, used to launch the spirit bodies
into the earthly or human plane for traveling.
After we have spent so much time discussing the reality of the
electro magnetism within us drawing other beings of light to us.
After we suggest that they come to us from parallel universes.
Here we see an involvement of the pituitary gland to launch
the spirit bodies into the human plane for traveling.
I could go on reading about things that are consistent with what we do here,
and the ancient writings, but what I found most interesting is that
when one studies the concept of darkness and meditation in the Tao,
one encounters the Mysterious Female.
THE MYSTERIOUS FEMALE
The principal purpose of this paper is to suggest the approach of
transpersonal psychology for analysis of some important aspects
of the Taoist doctrine, that is, the concept of the Tao as a female universal principle
and the Taoist attitude "to be like an infant" or even as an "embryo."
There are two principles that are found in the ancient writings
that also find their way into our western religions as solely ours,
with doctrines we believe to be unique to us and no one else.
Yet when we open our eyes we find they were always deep symbols
that predated our religions by eons.
One is the principle of the female or virgin, and the other is the child.
COME AS A CHILD
As our Bible says, unless you come as a child you cannot see the Kingdom.
This is consistent with the Taoist attitude to be like an infant.
We are unfortunately raised on the literalism of Bible stories.
We thus lose the power of the reality that these stories were meant to convey.
We take them literally and our spiritual base is destroyed
because we read about adventures of our heroes rather then understanding
the power of their existence which is inherent within us and within all of nature.
OURS IS HOLY AND THEIRS IS FAKE
We shift and change our heroes depending on our religion.
What was theirs becomes ours.
Ours then is holy and theirs is fake.
That is the way we live.
THE WAY IS THE MOTHER
Let us look at the mother for a moment.
Of course in our religious tradition this is the Blessed Virgin Mary.
But the woman, and the word Fatima, are very curious.
Fatima is a city in Portugal.
Why was the city in Portugal named Fatima?
Fatima was once a Muslim city.
It was controlled by Muslims known as The Moors.
The Muslims were driven out of Portugal by the Christians during the Crusades.
Fatima was the name of Mohammed's daughter and the city of
Fatima Portugal was named after her.
This is a painting of the Moors or Muslims surrendering to Queen Isabella in Spain
which happened in 1492 and at that point the
Christians took over Spain from the Muslims.
With the surrender of the Muslims to the Christians,
Fatima Portugal retained its name but became
Christian instead of Muslim.
THE APPEARANCE OF THE LADY
Many Muslims go to Fatima because of the appearance of “ The Lady”.
I raise the question , is the Lady Mary, or Fatima ?.
It depends on which group you belong to..
Changes in the status of Fatima Portugal are now being contemplated .
A Catholic newspaper there put out an article about this and their headline speaks
to how they feel about it.
This is from a Catholic newspaper called The Daily Catholic
From the Portugal News,
Read it and weep!
Fátima to become interfaith shrine!
Monsignor Guerra pointed out that the very fact that Fátima is the name
of a Muslim and Mohammed's daughter, is indicative that the Shrine
must be open to the co-existence of various faiths and beliefs.
According to the Monsignor: "Therefore we must assume that it was the will of
the Blessed Virgin Mary that this comes about this way."
Traditional Catholics opposed to the Congress were described by the Monsignor
as "old fashioned, narrow minded,
anatic extremists and provocateurs."
Of course Christians, Muslims and Jews have been slaughtering each other
since time has begun based on their bizarre beliefs,
but this does point out the importance of the Mother Goddess
which this really is.
THE WAY REALLY IS A WOMAN
The Tao which means The Way is far older then Fatima or Christianity,
is a female or maternal image.
Let me show you what Lao Tzu said.
The valley spirit never dies-it is called the mysterious female;
The gate of the mysterious female is called "the root of heaven and earth."
Gossamer it is, seemingly insubstantial, yet never consumed through use.
There was something featureless yet complete, born before heaven
silent-amorphous-it stood alone and unchanging.
We may regard it as the mother of heaven and earth.
Not knowing its name, I called it the "Way."
The description is this non manifested or mysterious (occult)
aspect of Tao as the womb of the universal embryo, the womb which generates
Heaven and Earth, which is the source of life.
Briefly speaking, it is the Mysterious Mother of the world:
THE MOTHER CONCEPT
The mother concept of the Tao the leading idea of about two aspects of Tao:
about Tao as "mysterious womb"
and Tao as mother-nurse of all beings.
The Tao speaks of that hidden in the woman.
The embryo hidden in the womb, like the prototypes of things that are
hidden in the "womb" of Tao.
This opinion may be supported by the fact that the images of the womb and embryo
are often used by Taoists to describe the
So Tao can be metaphorically defined as the mother of the world,
the source of life and being, and the universal female .
THE TAO AND MEDITATION
Professor Tortchinov died in 2003.
Taoism proclaims that a human being is nothing more
than an inseparable psychosomatic unity.
So people can obtain immortality only when their body-microcosm
becomes a self-sufficient whole--a self-containing reservoir of the vital energy
from one side,
and when it realizes its potential, isomorphism (relationship between two entities)
with the world-body of the cosmos from another side.
Lao Tzu makes a beautiful description of meditation here.
O! I am the only who is quiet and silent, like a baby who is not yet a child
With that we see the mother relationship.
Entering back into the womb of the cosmic mother.
Professor Torchinov said of this:
I think that the text is speaking about the foetus in the maternal womb.
Therefore, Lao-tzu here compares himself with the nonborn baby.
What does he inform us about this baby?
This baby-sage is "fastened and tied" by his embryonic "clothes" and umbilical cord,
which unites him with the maternal body.
This holy foetus has "the mind
[or heart-the thinking and conscious organ according to Chinese tradition]
of a fool," while at the same time it possesses the highest wisdom.
Thus, the connection between birth in the course of the cosmic evolution world,
and Tao looks quite like the connection between
a mother nourishing her child, and the baby itself.
But in the case of humans, there appears a self concept, an independent,
self-containing "I," as an unchanging subject of actions.
This kind of egoistic self-consciousness harms the original unity,
and humans begin to counteract Tao.
The predominant attitude of human actions is no longer the law and measure
of the cosmic rhythm of Tao, but egocentric preferences, which change
spontaneous natural life into purposeful activities based only on bare subjectivity.
Taoism sees egocentricity as the cause of all human sufferings, pains,
frustrations-from mortality to social collisions.
And there we see what is consistent in all religious philosophies.
The conflict between the higher and the lower.
But here there is a solution that is not unlike the solution of Kabbala.
It is put in the terms of the return to the mother.
The return to the womb.The place of meditation.
Let me show you how Professor Torchinov described this.
The only means, not only to become liberated from sufferings
but to obtain the highest happiness, is to restore original unity with Tao,
to broaden consciousness and to put an end to the egocentric attitude,
that is, to return to the state of the nonborn child who does not know a distinct difference
between his or her own body and the maternal body,
who breathes the maternal breath and eats maternal food.
In meditation, you breath the maternal breath and you eat the maternal food.
The manna from heaven if you will.
Professor Tortchinov Continues
This coming back to the womb of the Mother-Tao is connected with the broadening
of the personality to the cosmic scale, when
"eternal integrity never deserts you.
You will return to the state of infancy.
This state of the nonborn child is the state of immortality, peace, and unity
with all beings and with one's own nature:
The return to the root is called "stillness,"
stillness is called returning to the "fate-vitality,"
the return to the fate-vitality is called "constancy."
One who knows constancy is called "enlightened"
I love the emphasis on the word stillness
and it takes me to the Biblical story with Moses
when Moses was panicked as to how he was going to fight the battle before him.
Exodus 14:14. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace
All of this is speaking of meditation.
The burning bush we see portrayed here
is actually the pineal gland of the brain when when it is lit
by the rising electro energy up the spine gives us enlightenment.
Professor Torchinov concludes by saying:
Many of the basic ideas and images of Taoism have a profound humanistic sense,
deeply rooted in the very structure of our psychical experience.
Do we not see the image of the Mysterious Female-Mother of all
under heaven in Sophia or Eunoia of the Gnostics,
in Shekhina of the Kabbalah, or in Sophia,
the soul of the world, the image of the coming all-unity of the Russian
philosopher and mystic Vladimir Solovyev?
I have seen everything and everything was only one:
The only image of the female beauty.
Unlimitless entered its measure,
In front of me, inside of me, there is only you.
-Vladimir Solovyev, "Three Meetings
IT IS THE WOMAN, IT IS THE MOTHER
It plays itself out in whatever context you find comfortable.
Mary, Fatima, Cyble, Isis.
It is the cosmic mother who waits for all to return to the womb
of meditation to be born again.
The physical body is labeled for this principle.
The human brain as we see.
The pia mater (Latin: "tender mother", itself a translation from Arabic)
is the delicate innermost layer of the meninges -
the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
The tender mother waits inside for all of us to come home.
Can you see her sitting there in the center of the picture toward the bottom.
Amongst the trees.
She has a dog on either side. Can you see her?
Can you ?
