Tao Te Ching Addendum

This following was transcribed from an audio recording I made during deep meditation.

With pain, I am numb.
With sound, I am deaf.
With sight I am blind.
With time, I am finite.
With love, I can hate.
With pain, I’m alone.
With words, I am misunderstood.

With words come confusion.
With peace comes war.

What is there to fight?
Where is there to go?
When should we be?

Such delicate expressions, so fragile.
Burning to their fullest. 
What would be a full expression?
To live to the edge? 
To watch it burn its brightest? 
Not holding back something for tomorrow? 
Unchanged by yesterday? 
Let it be, this, as it is.
The fullest expression of itself.

As I skip across the pages of reality,
And say words that mean nothing,
Let us melt into oneness with each other.
Let us accept everything as it is.
Let us be whole, as we see ourselves unwhole.
Let us be wise, with nothing in our mind.
Let us know, without knowledge.
Let us love, without having.
Let us be, without anything.
Let us live, without death.

There is only an end, if there is a start, and a start without an end. 
No time, without the timeless.
No sense of place, without being lost.
No self, without everything else.
Let us be, and that is enough.
Let us know nothing.

There’s a time for love, and a time for blindness.
There’s a time for pain, and a time for comfort.
A time for brightness, and a time for nothingness.
A time for rain, and a time for clear skies.
A time for the outside, and a time for the in.
A time for warmth, and a time for the cold.
A time for introspection, and a time for forgetting.
A time for pressure, and a time for release.
A time for broken and a time for fixed.
A time to be frustrated, and a time for peace.

Boredom, fascination; it is all OK.
It is all one, it is all needed, it is all here.
Its value is equal.
It is either one or zero. One, or nothing.
It is on, or it is off; it is not one.
Just the pure beauty of oneness,
And wonderousness of it all is ever present,
Always here for you right now.
This place of infinite, foreverness. 
In-fin-ite possibilities.
You swim in it as it washes over you.
You just let it be.

Where would you go, when you don’t know where you are?
Where would you run to, if you’re always lost?
All you’ve ever been is lost.
There is nowhere to run to,
and nothing to run from.
Forever lost? 
Forever at home.

The nonsense you hear makes perfect sense.
The alignment you fear is the only side.
We can’t have one without the other.
You fight the other, or be both.
In both, you are neither.

In simplicity, there is truth.
In simplicity, there is nothing.
In looking, you become lost.
In owning, you have nothing.
In seeking, you will never find.
In hoping, you find fear.
In releasing, you are at peace.

In love, there is hate.
In light, there is dark.
In more, there is less.
In reaching, there is receding.
In withdrawing, there is attack.
With resistance, there is onslaught.
In grabbing, there is resistance.
In knowing, there is ignorance.
In simplicity, there is eternal complexity.
In pain, there is comfort.
In the forever, there is now.
In nonsense, there is sense.
In blindness, there is sight.
In colours, there is light.
In darkness, there is pain.

In life; light and dark are one.
It is all the Tao, it is all one, it is all OK.
Those who fight the OK, are OK.
Those who fight for OK, need to simply put down their weapons.
Those that once resisted your fight to make them OK, will be free to be OK.
Let it all be OK, for it is, and always has been, and always shall be.
Every cry, let it be.
I do not resist, or question.
It is.
If it is, then it must be OK.
For how could it be, and not be OK?
Through the lens of human judgement only.
Through the lens of an eternal experience of infinite possibilities,
It is merely an obvious function,
An inevitable outcome of the infinite.
Every question you ask has its answer built into it.
For infinity, creates infinite.
Let it be infinite.
Let your piece be the piece that it is,
For it is the piece that you have.

I am not the vessel, I wish this message reaches you.
The vessel focuses the message,
Filters the message through to you.
For it is not the vessel that speaks.
It is beyond. It is outside, it is within.
It is everyone, it is you.
Its everything, and therefore nothing.
It is all of it, being and non-being, the black and the white and the sounds and the silence.
The wisdom, the Universe, the emptiness. Absolute completion.
The infinite manifest. Never to be tied down, Forever contained.
In-fin-ite wisdom.
Emptiness flows.

The I does not want to package the infinite.
The I doesn’t want this life to be pieced; 
To wrap it up in a bow for you.
The I doesn’t want to take a chunk out of it.
Take its separateness and strip it away and hold it as ‘mine’.
Its dead, and causes pain.
Now you can judge me for that piece? 
The I separate from the all?
The chunk separate from infinite wisdom?
To be judged right or wrong?
To be taken by you as true or false?
To be a representation of you or your enemy?
This piece; this piece of the infinite that is never disconnected from infinity cannot be thrust into duality.
Let the I slip away.
See through.
Dissolve into this moment forever.
Only with time are you finite.
Here, you are forever.
Let me hold your hand.
Hold the hand of eternity.
Millions of you, hold my hand, as though they are here alone.
You are with me.

As I become you, I find myself.
As I wash away, I come home.
As I dissolve, I am formed.
As I am known, I am unknown.
As I whisper, I shout.
As I am clear, I sound confused.
I seem lost when I have found the way.
I seem trapped when I am free.
When I am in pain, I am at peace.
In peace there is pain.
The infinite transcends these dualities.
The infinite Tao transcends all things.
Let it be.
Let it be.
Let it be.
Let it be.

You fight to take tomorrow, and you’ll lose today.
In wanting, you’ll have nothing.
In feeling, you are numb.
There is one, and it exists within zero.
It is one, or everything.
It is one, or it is nothing.
It is separate, it is separately a part of this infinity, infinitely.
In holding, I am weak.
In allowing, there is peace.
In seeking, you are lost.
The light shines through you.
It cannot be stopped, except for when it stops.
In the infinite, it is and it isn’t,
For how else could it be infinite?
It is both nonsense and pure sense,
Without logic, and logic itself.

You are time, as is timeless.
My speech may be silent, but I am heard.


What does curing disease mean?

I proclaim to have healed my own chronic illnesses, and I believe that others can do the same. What do I mean by this? How do we know if we have healed or cured disease? How does it happen?

Curing disease means that symptoms of illness are no longer present.

This means that if you were to visit a medical doctor, they would no longer find any signs of illness that they can diagnose.

Some things cannot be cured. These are usually conditions that people are born with, such as Down’s Syndrome, Primordial Dwarfism, or Congenital Blindness.

However, most conditions develop over our lifetime, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. There are two ways in which this can occur:

  1. Substances cause your body to be unable to function properly, and your continued exposure prevents your body from healing.
  2. Substances cause immediate problems that don’t resolve because you continue to be exposed to the substance.

Therefore, if you want to resolve these conditions, you must identify and remove these illness-causing substances.

To do this, the easiest option is an elimination diet. This approach uses foods which are the least allergenic and most nutrient dense, and removes all the others until illness subsides. You should also remove all unnecessary chemicals, such as fragranced body care, air fresheners, and cleaners.

The safest foods for healing are animal foods.

Plants use a variety of chemical defences to prevent being eaten by insects and animals. These chemicals can cause all sorts of problems in the body. Other foods are totally man-made, such as vegetable oil and processed foods. Vegetable oils are the number one cause of modern diseases, so even just removing them from your diet will improve health.

Now you are no longer consuming problematic foods or exposing yourself to synthetic chemicals, your body can start to function properly again. After a few months, you will be able to try reintroducing certain foods and substances, and discover whether they are problematic for you. You can retain your optimal health from this point forward.

What Christ did

He did not pass on His burdens. He bore all burdens undeserving upon Himself. He took upon Him the sins of the world and did not pass on a single one.

This is in stark contrast to us. When we get DESERVING feedback from the world around us, we try to avoid it, deflect it, deny it, fight it, resist it as much as possible. When we get UNDESERVING feedback, we project it out onto others.

These negative responses to both justified and unjustified suffering merely impose more suffering on others.

Example: Your friend insults you. This is either a justifiable insult, or a completely unjustifiable one. Either way you can respond with:

1. Retaliation. They hurt you so now you can hurt them back to balance it out.

2. Diffuse the situation without retaliation. You didn’t want to hurt them, but now are emotionally troubled by this experience and hurt other people you encounter as a result.

In both scenarios, the underlying reality is that you felt uncomfortable with the pain of the situation that was inflicted on you. Whether the pain inflicted on you was justified or not, you wanted to get rid of that unwanted pain.

In scenario 1, the retaliation feels like a quick and easy way to release the pain back onto the other person. In scenario 2, you feel like the unfairness of your pain justifies you making others feel bad too.

Both of those concepts have many nuances that could be explored, but the point I am making is that Jesus did not do either. Jesus did nothing to deserve the pain he experienced while He was alive in human form. This means that He did nothing to deserve any kind of suffering. All the pain He experienced was undeserving, yet He did not pass on any of the pain to others. He took all the pain and transmuted it into Love through His Truth, Compassion, and Forgiveness.

When we try to take all pain and transmute it, instead of releasing onto another, we are following the Way of Christ.

Practicing for Heaven

If we expect to be in Heaven, then we may wish to prepare to be in such a place. Are you ready to be in the presence of Christ? If you were in Christ’s presence, how would you behave? How would you feel? What would you think? What would you wish?

Does that scare you? It could happen right now!

You have time to practice! What a joyous gift! What a miracle of God! We can die so slowly God! What a joyous miracle, that we have time to practice being in Heaven here on Earth! Thank you God!
