  1. Did Lao Tsu Fail?

    If the gatekeeper never asked him to write the TTC (if we are to believe that story), then he would've just been on his merry way and minding his own business. I'm sure he knew that most people wouldn't be able to apply his advice properly, and that his criticisms on society will no longer be applicable either as society changes with time. I think he was just sincerely trying his best to write spiritual advice for living, for whoever happens to read it, with no thought to whether it will be successful or not.

    Lao Tzu's spiritual message is still alive and being appreciated, by those who are able to.

  5. Six Thoughts About the Way

    Hi, I think the successful way of cultivating such a method in which one deals with their own ego is to self reflect and recognize subtle views and behaviors, so that one can truly have the opportunity to see past and rise above themselves through change. The change process itself involves not feeding those recognized behavior patterns and perspectives, in order to empty ones cup and have a clear and broader view on life. Practicing virtue is a way to facilitate that. I think that when this is practiced to a high degree, where one's awareness is no longer swayed or biased towards anything, one can reach the so called emptiness. As for the ego thats always talked about, i like to think that its just the lower self, which are the thoughts and mind that are formed as a result of having a physical body. And instead of reducing it, the better term would be integrating it with your higher self, which is your soul. Self reflection is hard though, many people (me) would rather move mountains than even consider the fact that they might be wrong.

  8. Some spiritual flash poetry - Post your own

    The edge of space Should set the pace So make your haste Or the dirt you'll taste Some want might To endlessly fight Thats full of shite I say with spite Some need orders And turn into fodder Poor poor I say They've lost their way No need to be silly Live life a bit simply Don't tire youself out Needlessly mucking about Just empty your head And lie on your bed Then maybe you'll see That you can be quite free

  11. Key 'Stats' for Cultivators

    Good self awareness and judgement. I've been told that high level cultivation is done throughout the day in each and every moment, and that these will make sure that you stay on the right track as you interact with the world. Oh, and some luck in order to find a genuine method to cultivate.
