  4. The Father and Son of Taoist Philosophy

  6. The Yi Jing Begins with the Eight Symbols of the Ba Gua

    In regard to the attributes for the front and the back and how they were defined.....??? Let's look at the sides of the hill. The sunny side of the hill was consider to be Yang which is the front. The shadow side of the hill was considered to be Yin which is the back. Ref: Yin-Yang
  7. Can we not love our brother as ourselves?

    It seems to me this is always falls into the dilemma of double standard.
  8. Can we not love our brother as ourselves?

    It seems to me that Yutang was quoting from Lao Zi.

    使: to make it happen; let it happen I am glad that we have some agreements in our discussions for a change. Finally. we have come to our senses.
  10. Karma IS real after all . ( or is it ? )

    TM doesn't believe in Yin is within Yang and vice versa. 陰中帶陽 Yang is within Yin 陽中帶陰 Yin is within Yang
  11. The Father and Son of Taoist Philosophy

    It was be because no one has read Chapter One correctly. Lao Zi had introduced Wu(無) and You(有) in Chapter One and explicitly expressed throughout the TTC. All ZZ's ideas were derived from LZ.
  12. Conflicting Info

    The key to get the correct answer is from the right source. It seems no one knows how to get to the right source. Unfortunately, the source may be right up front for grabs but many chances had gone by unknowingly.
  13. Some Info on Hu Yaozhen

    Walker..... Sorry, my translation had disappointed you. I am glad that you didn't like it. To be honest with you, I had done my best to do an unbiased translation to reflect what the article says. btw I don't think my Chinese is that bad and deserve such strong remarks from you. However, even though I did the translation but I did not like it anymore than you do. It is because I believe that is not what Chi Kung is all about neither.
  14. Some Info on Hu Yaozhen

    Okay..... I will stop here.
  15. Spiritual value Bagua.vs Tajiquan?

    I believe when the word "spiritual" was mentioned is always have something to do with the mind. You should be aware of that I had done a translation in the Dual Cultivation of Xing(mind) and Ming(body). I was advised not to put a label on oneself because it is meaningless. Well, how can a Taoist without a label and try to talk like one....??? In order to keep my spiritual mind in tact, I had labeled myself as a "Wu Wei Taoist". Now, I got this out of the way; I can speak freely. To a Chinese Taoist, cultivation of the mind is basically to have the mind in a nonchalant state. It doesn't mean that a Taoist is carefree about anything. Actually, a Taoist is always care about everything and assure that Nature is never go off course. Having a peaceful mind will keep one's mind in a high state of alert. The calmness of the mind will able one to see things clearly for making a better judgement. It will prevent one from taken an action irrationally. One will have full mental control of anger by keeping one's poise. All arguments are handled in a friendly and peaceful manner. Finally, the best policy is to beware of the unexpected silently; and handle adversity with calmness. Tai Ji will keep the practitioner in a state of serenity at all times. The slowness of the movement will keep the body in a state of easy and soft flow while the mind is indulged in an irenic mood.
