"The truest communication with God is absolute, total silence; there is not a single word in existence that can convey this communication."

Ask life itself over a period of a thousand years the following question:
"Why are you alive?"
And the only response you would receive would be:
"I live so that I may live."
Therefore, the only way to live, is like the rose,
which lives without a why.

Think of the soul as a vortex or a whirlpool,
and you'll understand how we are to
Sink                                                     
Eternally                              
        From letting go
                                             To letting go
                                                                                Into the One.

The Word of God is always
"In the beginning."
And this means
That it is always in the process of being born
And is always already born.

- Meister Eckhart

If you can empty your mind of all thoughts
your heart will embrace the tranquility of peace.
Watch the workings of all of creation,
but contemplate their return to the source.



All creatures in the universe
return to the point where they began.
Returning to the source is tranquility
because we submit to Heaven's mandate.



Returning to Heaven's mandate is called being constant.
Knowing the constant is called 'enlightenment'.
Not knowing the constant is the source of evil deeds
because we have no roots.
By knowing the constant we can accept things as they are.
By accepting things as they are, we become impartial.
By being impartial, we become one with Heaven.
By being one with Heaven, we become one with Tao.
Being one with Tao, we are no longer concerned about
losing our life because we know the Tao is constant
and we are one with Tao.

- Tao Te Ching, 16

The most heinous and destructive crime,
The most beautiful and tender lovemaking,
The most perverted and abominable molestation,
The most delicious and fulfilling meal,
The most terrifying and vicious hatred,
The most enchanting and seducing delights,
are all yearnings for God,
aspirations towards God
all express God, praise God
and are God.


Action causes Reaction.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you .
Judge not lest you be judged.
