  6. Hua Hu Ching

    I've been reading a chapter or two of the Hua Hu Ching in my daily practice and find Walker's translation quite good (is there another translation available?). I find some translations, such as certain versions of the Tao Te Ching to be impenetrable. Anyone want to share a favourite chapter of the Hua Hu Ching? I enjoyed this one this morning: 50 "What good is it to spend your life accumulating material things? It isn't in keeping with the Tao. What benefit in conforming your behavior to someone's conventions? It violates your nature and dissipates your energy. Why separate your spiritual life and your practical life? To an integral being, there is no such distinction. Live simply and virtuously, true to your nature, drawing no line between what is spiritual and what is not. Ignore time. Relinquish ideas and concepts. Embrace the Oneness. This is the Integral Way." Uh huh.
  7. Hello everyone

    Hey all. My name is Paul. I've been interested in Taosim for upwards of 20 years. I am a shipper / receiver, artist, and haijin (haiku poet) who's been published in Canadian Zen Haiku magazine and Contemporary Haibun Online. Thank you for taking me into your fold and I look forward to my time here. Yup. Paul
