  1. Tao Te Ching

    Most of what I have seen on here so far is confused people adding things into the Tao Te Ching that do not belong, and have never had anything at all to do with the Tao Te Ching. Seems People can not be satisfied with what is. You always want to complicate everything, same thing has happened with Christianity it is far, far away from what the Ante-Nicene fathers had in mind. I am sure this is the very reason Lao-Tzu wanted to be left alone.
  2. Whew, seems to be alot of nuts on this site. I will give it some time, but will most likely terminate.

  3. You obviously are searching for answers, all answers lie within. But since you searched I will help you. Good and bad are only parts of the oneness, look for the wholeness, there are peaks and valleys as we move through this life, and look closely there are many lessons to be learned in both. See the beauty of the roses, but love also the thorns.

  4. It seems you need to immerse yourself in the Tao. Forget ideas of bad luck-good luck type of thinking, they are only perceptions, and attitudes. I do not know your lifestyle, however I wonder if you have tried changing it and the type of people you gravitate toward. This would be the first step to take. Most all things that happen to us in life are the result of our own doing. What is good for some is bad for another and vise-versa. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change. But always look within first, in all things.

    Hello, I also am new to this site. Meditation is a way of emptying the mind of random thoughts. So the easiest way for me to begin meditation was to simply relax and focus my mind on my breathing, inhale and exhale through your nose, feel the coolness coming in and the warmness out, this will teach you focus and to be relaxed.
  6. Hello

    Been following the Way for 2 1/2 years. Was raised a Christian, and always had questions. When I found the Tao Te Ching I had finally found all the answers, because there were no more questions.
