Evolution & Spirituality

This is today's reading from 365 Tao, a book by Taoist author, graphic designer, and martial artist Deng Ming-Dao:

“[Day] 207:::: Evolution:

Organic molecules from cosmic clouds,

Millions of years in the midst of eternity.

We sprang from the primordial;

Our spirituality came in the evolution.

There is strong evidence that human beings evolved from basic early molecules.

Those molecules were formed from…

Tao道: The Tasty Beverage…

It was recently put to me to describe "why Taoism is different". My response:

Why Taoism is Different::::

The question or idea: “Why is Taoism different”, is immediately translated in my mind to: Why Taoism is so refreshing…

First, there is no deity with subjective and selfish ends to serve. There is wuji, or Hun-tun, the Primordial Chaos. Ineffable and beyond comprehension, I don’t need to worry about it. Outside any equation, it is the grand ultimate formula… Read More

"Don't Worry" (ca. 300 BCE)

“Great knowledge is all-encompassing; small knowledge is limited. Great words are inspiring; small words are chatter.

“When we are asleep, we are in touch with our souls. When we are awake, our senses open. We get involved in our activities and our minds are distracted. Sometimes we are hesitant, sometimes underhanded, sometimes secretive. Little fears cause anxiety, and great fears cause panic.

“Our words fly off like arrows, as though we knew what was right and wrong. We… Read More

Great Quotes from C.G. Jung

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.

Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.

The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical… Read More

:::Seven Simple Words::::

The following recounts a vision I had around March 7th, 1996.

Prior to this dream, I was at an impasse with my belief system. Five months earlier, I had dropped out of my senior year in high school after being caught at school with a significant quantity of l¥sérg¡ç åç¡d d¡é†hlåm¡dé, and following a parental ultimatum, had gone to live at a Christian retreat for young men with substance abuse issues. During that five months I had read the Bible through for the first time. This was…

The Significance of 7::: Does it all add up?

From the Absolute, neither being nor non-being, comes One. I give its alias, Tao. We can refer to it as the Source, represented by that most wonderful language, mathematics, as One.

From One comes Two, duality. Conveniently named yin and yang; and their constant interchange gives birth to the dynamism of Three.

Three is te, which means nature as a universal power (source of action). Nature, having been firmly established, gives birth to Four.

Four are the… Read More

Dream analysis…The Underworld and Sofia

Concerning my dreams on the night of May 5th, 2009…(Recent waking world stuff: I have been studying Sofia myth/archetype, C.G. Jung ("Dreams, Memories, Reflections") I’ve been decidedly single for three years, I’m broke (who isn’t?), and just got laid off.)

There were a group of us traveling deep under ground. Through passageways, chambers, and staircases we searched for an answer—an answer to why the sky was falling.

Eventually, we found who we were looking… Read More

My experiences in life, and an inventory of my thoughts and actions throughout, has confirmed in my own heart what many of the great teachers have said; the ego state of consciousness cuts me off from the sunlight of the spirit. Fear drives the ego state to all kinds of harmful extremes, to the point where I become a danger to self and others. I, that is the ego "I", create my own miserableness. I quake with fear, grasp and push desperately, and repeat an endless loop of negativity and… Read More

Day of Service:::01.19.2009

Dear Friends,

Here is a story I want to share with you. It is my story, and it is a story of hope. Too often, we are bombarded by stories of war, genocide, financial woe, and "if it bleeds, it leads" media garbage. I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

On March 23rd of 2006, I came to Boise with little more than a bike and a backpack. I had no home, no job, and no one I knew within 480 miles. I ate meals, showered, and slept on the floor of the Boise Rescue… Read More

The trouble for mankind has always been that a human being cannot see herself from where she stands.

To look within and discover the Divine inside ourselves, we must have a mirror of some kind. Many individuals throughout history have developed their own mirrors. To share a mirror with another, the edges must be defined, in order to be held and passed around. To create the framework around the mirror which can be understood by others, individuals use either natural or cultural… Read More
