I have one thing to say. this is why i joined this site. I am from a hermetic discipline, even to say this is not accurate.. but the closet to the truth. Taoism has always been the closet path to perfection(readily available) because it puts the power in the individuals hands. Most sacred texts are false(as it concerns us) because either they are doctored or apply to a different age. This is where people really go wrong.. they get caught up in rules of different ages. Be it egyptian, sumerian... one of the true translations of the ten commandments states "acquire as much knowledge of the universe as you need to follow creational law"
I can say Falun dafa is a very beneficial practise. also, franz bardon.
