Here is an email I received from a banned member who is a mo pai follower.
"Hi Flowing hands.
I feel sorry for the people who buy into your Luddite nonsense.
Mo Pai is technology, that is a fact.
People with your mindset would have us sit in the darkness and play make believe till we die rather than pursue something that is actually real.
That is very sad."
He obviously didn't want to reply openly to my post so I have posted his message here and I will reply to it openly.
Hello mo pai follower,
The whole ethos of Daoism is based on 'self' cultivation, the more one goes up the ladder of understanding, the more one realizes that the accumulation of power in a human form is futile. When I first started as a shaman 31 years ago, I was eager to become powerful and of course the Immortal Masters give you their power to start off. Although it seems they have given you a lot of power, it is in fact a single drop in a vast and unending ocean. I have cultivated that power for all those years, but the Immortal Master has never asked me to use that power to do tricks to make people believe in me. Sure I can do some great healing etc. but belief comes from what ones does and goes about in this world and what one says. I believe, as the Immortal Master does, that it is better to steer people into following the Dao and not lead them into fanaticism that they really will never achieve. I bet you that you have never personally met John Chang and yet you think that he is the God you wish to emulate?
I am no Luddite, but I try to be wise and to help people when they are obviously lost and confused. If you want to have great power, forget about it and become a perfect person then you can be entrusted with all the power in the universe, but by that time you will have forgotten that which you craved.
Good luck on your path
