    Dawei, what is IMO?
  2. Chapter 1

    Dawei, thank you for your help. I will go back through chapter #1 and re-read the posts. I'm sorry about my posts that were shuffled or unfinished. Somehow my replies jumped around. Thanks again for your help with my questions, got it. Thanks!
  3. Chapter 1

    I tried posting this; however it be became scrambled: I hope this is easier to follow. I understand the previous concepts: I need to formulate one of my own. Questions: The Dao that can be spoken is The Ten Thousand Things. Are we and everything enveloped by the Universe, The Ten Thousand Things? The Dao that cannot be spoken is the Mother of the Ten Thousand Things. Is the Mother of The Ten Thousand Things, the Universe? Is "wu" wuji: stillness or emptiness? What is "yu".

  6. Chapter 1

    I have so many comments and questions: I think? No: I do. I can grasp each pervious comment: Now it's time for me to formulate my concept. Four questions: Is "wu" (wuji): a state of empitiness or stillness? What is "yu"? The Mother of the 10,000 things: Is She the Universe? Are we and other objects the 10,000 things, through-out our Mother the "Universe"?
  7. Chapter 1

    The Way/Source; Infinity Universal, Boundless, The one True Source of Light, Love and Joy. Vanity Driven; the Self fails to maintain a certain Position or Condition, Likeness or Similarity, against the one True Source. Grandeur: Grand Thoughts, Grand Achievements, Grand Creations are Diminutive, Shrouded, and never hold Truth. Truth with-out Want is Real Truth. We absorb information: the out-look reflects our Perception of the Truth. We are the Universe, We are the Truth, We are the Way: how we navigate our Path is the Truth. The Way must have a quite; nevertheless, intuitive Mind?

    Marblehead, what exactly is the Book or Writings of Tao Te Ching? The Path or Way of Te Ching? If so who was Te Ching?

    Oh yes, in the haste of my discovery, I neglected to list the four limbs. AAAHHH! ~Thank you for your Kindness~
  10. [TTC Study] Chapter 50 of the Tao Teh Ching

    I've been browsing topics. I'm going to chapter #1 Tao Te Ching. Unless you may have a stronger starting point.
  11. [TTC Study] Chapter 50 of the Tao Teh Ching

    Now I understand the thirteen companions, four limbs and 9 orifices: eyes, ears, nostrils, mouth, anus and urethra ?

    The topic, to way heavily on life, really just means, not to burden yourself with any matter, concern or affair that contradicts happiness.
  13. [TTC Study] Chapter 50 of the Tao Teh Ching

    I'm sorry about the intrusion, who are the thirteen companions of life and the same as in death? Can you answer and or refer me to the teachings? ~Thank You Warmest Reflections~

    I'm sorry to interrupt, is it wrong to way to heavily on life? Thank You
  15. I've studied Shori Ryu ( Sensai Toshshiaki Gillespie), Shorinji Ryu, Nenriki, Taijiqaun Yang 108, Philosophy (Master Kim) through Sensai Dunphy, 18 Buddha hands Chi gung, Taijiqaun Yang 108 (Sifu Ginney Gooding), Taijiquan Yang short and long, Reeling Silk, Push Hands and Six Harmony (Sifu Mancuso) and I have studied Yang 108 DVD (Terry Dunn) and Chen styles DVDS (Adam Hsu.) I never forget my place in the Realm of these studies and maintain a Beginners a mind: everything is a new experience even past experiences. The tree changes through the seasons and grows old; and has many new features to study and learn. Its roots have grown and mine with it but there is fast unyielding growth. Keeping a peaceful, quiet Beginners mind seems to allow your consciousness to be free and open to except (past,present,and future) experiences and Knowledge throughout life's growth.
