Taoism, also known as Daoism, is a philosophical and religious tradition that emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao (or Dao). The word "Tao" translates roughly to "way" or "path" but in the context of Taoism, it refers to a sort of intrinsic order or fundamental essence of the Universe. Taoism originated in China around the 4th century BCE and is traditionally attributed to the philosopher Laozi, although it has evolved significantly over the centuries.

Taoism includes several key concepts:

- Tao: As mentioned above, the Tao is the natural, spontaneous, eternal and indescribable way everything began and took course. It's an underlying, non-dualistic principle that governs the universe.

- Yin and Yang: These are opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is passive, dark, and feminine, Yang is active, light, and masculine. The interplay between these two forces shapes the universe and everything in it.

- Wu-wei: This means "non-action" or "effortless action". It's a state of being in which our actions align with the ebb and flow of the natural world.

- Ziran: This translates to "naturalness" or "spontaneity". It describes the state of existing without pretense or artificiality, in harmony with the Tao.

Taoism has influenced many aspects of Chinese culture, including literature, art, medicine, martial arts, and cuisine. It's considered one of the three main pillars of traditional Chinese thought, alongside Confucianism and Buddhism.

Taoism can be seen both as a philosophy and a religion. As a philosophical system, it primarily deals with the natural philosophy and ethics, emphasizing naturalness, simplicity, spontaneity, and the Three Treasures: compassion, moderation, and humility. As a religious system, it incorporates rituals, ancestor veneration, divination, and various spiritual practices, with different sects and interpretations over time.

In terms of texts, the "Tao Te Ching" (also spelled Daodejing) and the "Zhuangzi" are two of the most significant. The former is attributed to Laozi and the latter to the philosopher Zhuangzi. Both discuss the nature of the Tao and how to live in accord with it.

Please note that understanding Taoism can be difficult, as it's often paradoxical and works more as a system of thought to be experienced rather than as a set of dogmas to be followed.



Chang Tao


The existence

Wu - Wei


“The Tao that we can talk about (call it the Tao) is not the "Unchangeable Tao " (Ch'ang Tao).

The name we can give it is not "Unchangeable Name" (ch'ang ming ).

Invisible (Wu) is the name I give to the Generator of Yang and Yin.

Visible (Yeu) is the name I give to the Mother of ten thousand beings.

Truly, in Wu (“not to be”, “to have no determinations”, invisible) we will marvel at the mystery.

In the Yeu ("Being", "has determinations", visible) we will see the external phenomena.

These two (Wu and Yeu) spring from the same (Tao), but their ways are different.

This "same" (Tao), I call the Dark (Xuan).

The darkest of this darkness is the "Gate of All Mysteries" (Ch'ang Tao).

(Tao Te Ching, chapter 1).

Chang Tao

TAO is the Only Reality:

“The Tao of which we can speak (call it Tao) is not the ETERNAL UNCHANGING TAO (CHANG TAO)”, (Tao Te Ching, chapter 1).


The Tao which we can talk about is described in chapter 25.

"There was an indefinite complete,

It was, before Heaven and earth appeared.

Silent, without any identifiable substance,

Resting on nothing, Immutable,

It penetrates (and is felt) everything, pervades everything, remaining Inexhaustible.

It is the source of all things.

I don't know its real name.

Tao is a name I give to It.

Trying to define it, I should say Mega (Ta, Infinite, Immeasurable).

But "ta" also means to evolve according to its nature

And to evolve means to spread to infinity

And to stretch out to infinity is to return back to its source.

Thus, as the Tao has "this property of evolving"

And as Uranus also has this property

And as the earth has it

So, the dominant man also has this ability.

Thus, within "reality" there are four processes of evolution

And one refers to "man".

The "ways" of men adapt to those of the earth

The "ways" of earth to those of Heaven

The "ways" of Heaven to those of the Tao

And the "ways" of the Tao in those "of It who is thus of Itself" (Ch'ang Tao).

(TTK, 25).

Within the texts of Lao Tzu a clear distinction is therefore made between the Ch'ang Tao and the Tao (of which we can speak), that is, the Reality that can be perceived.

The Chang Tao is Te. It is identified with Te (Spontaneous Energy), contains Te, manifests through Te. When Te calms then Ch'ang Tao is Ch'ang Tao. When Te is active then Tao is revealed. Tao in this sense means "Activity", "Process", Evolutionary Course, Path, Way (and in this sense it is not distinguished from Te). From the Tao all things arise and to the Tao they return (TTK, 25).

How is this possible? Within the Tao emerge two forces, yang (represented by a solid line) and yin (represented by a dashed line) activities that complement each other and exist simultaneously both together. Yang means spiritual energy, intelligence, the mentality that grasps abstract realities, relationships, etc. Yin means the essential element, the essence. Substance can have a "spiritual texture" or more coarse (what appears as "matter"). This depends on the level of activity (as explained below).

Yang and yin exist simultaneously, always, but their action is complementary. When Yang increases, Yin decreases and vice versa. This results in a spectrum of activity starting from Pure Yang and as yin progressively increases it ends up in pure yin. In this spectrum of activity there are infinite gradations but roughly different fields of activity can be distinguished. The transition from one field of activity to another is gradual but for purely practical reasons we identify three main phases represented by three lines, (as in the trigrams K'ien and K'uen ) or by the combination of three trigrams.

So, from Chiang Tao is born the One (Tao). From the One are born the two forces Yang and Yin. From the two forces are born the three distinct phases of activity that produce all fields of activity and all phenomena. According to Lao Tzu:

"The Tao (Ch'ang Tao) gave birth to the One,

One gave birth to duality,

Then two gave birth to three,

All three gave birth to all that exists.

These ten thousand creations have yin on their backs

And they embrace Yang

And their balance is based on this combination of forces..."

(TTK, 42).

In the beginning Yang predominates and yin is potent. This state is completely abstract and there are no discernible determinations for it and it is called Unseen (Wu, "not to be", "not to have determinations"). Nevertheless, three phases, states, can be distinguished, which are represented by three continuous lines, one on top of the other (the trigram Kien). This means the complete Predominance of Yang (which is why it is called Pure Yang, or simply Yang, or Heaven), but also the three phases, the transition from Pure Yang to the strengthening and emergence of yin.

In these three purely spiritual states the Tao appears to be:

1) I, Indistinct, undistinguished, "without idioms", "empty".

2) Si, Voiceless, Silent, "without presence".

3) Wei, Intangible, Subtle, imperceptible, "non-existent".

According to Lao Tzu:

"I look with my eyes but do not see: this I therefore call the Indiscernible (I).

I listen with the ears but do not hear it: and then I call it the Silent (Si).

I feel it with my hands but I do not feel it: and so I call it the Subtle (Wei).

All three of these experiences reveal the unexplored,

Thus, I perceive nothing but an Undifferentiated Unity.

Rising it does not shine, setting it does not darken.

Infinity, chain, not specified

Because it is within the space where there is no discrimination.

Described as shapeless,

Like an image without a face

That's why they call it Inconceivable.

You stare at it, but it has no face.

You follow it, but it has no spine.

And yet if you devote yourself to the ancient Tao

You will dominate even today.

Knowing the principle

It means "to have found the essence of Tao ".

When yin is active then there are distinct differences and different fields of activity are identified. All these states are characterized as the Visible (Yeu, "being", "having determinations"). While in the higher field of activity (Invisible) existence is composed of Yang, while yin is in potential and perceived as an Undifferentiated Unity, in the lower fields of activity (Visible) existence is composed of Yang and yin and appears to break down into Subject, consciousness of ego, (hsig , of Yang nature , spiritual energy) and object (mig , of Yin nature , vital substance). In the higher realm of Vision the hsig is pure intelligence and the mig is mental in texture. In the middle field of vision the hsig is degraded and the mig is energetic in texture. In the lower realm of Vision the hsig is even more degraded and the mig is of a material texture. Thus, in the Visible existence appears fragmented (the subject perceives itself within an objective world) and multiple (there are many subjects and objects).

Within Visible, three main fields of activity emerge, each comprising three phases.

1) When Yang dominates but Yin is active.

2) When yin dominates but yang is active.

3) When yin and yang fully prevail, it exists in potential.


1) The field of activity in which Yang dominates but yin is active is called Huen . Huen means the general state of the spiritual, luminous, higher soul but also the individual spiritual soul (of Yang nature). The individual spiritual soul is composed of spiritual energy (xig , of Yang nature ), concretized into mentality  (xin), and vital substance (mig , of Yin nature ), of mental texture. There are three main activities in this field represented by the three trigrams Tui, Li, Suen, which consist of two continuous lines and one broken line (top, middle, bottom, respectively). The three trigrams show (from top to bottom) the progressive strengthening of yin which slowly becomes the basis of existence. These three activities correspond to mental activities, functions, which in Western philosophy are called intellect, intelligence, perception.

2) When yin is further strengthened we pass into a field of activity qualitatively different from the previous one, the field where yin dominates but yang is active which is called p'o . Which means the general state of the "physical", dark, lower soul but also the individual "physical" soul (of the yin nature). The individual "physical" soul is composed of degraded mental activities and vital substance (mig) of energetic texture, which is gross and therefore appears as a form and is called "physical". There are three main activities represented by the three trigrams Chen, K'an, Ken which consist of two broken lines and one continuous line (bottom, middle, top, respectively). The three trigrams show (from top to bottom) the further strengthening of yin which at some point fully dominates. These three activities correspond to the animal energies, activities, consciousness, will, sense, of Western philosophy.

3) When yin is further strengthened we move into a field of activity qualitatively different from the previous one, in the field where yin fully predominates and yang exists in potential. This field is represented by the trigram K'wen consisting of three dotted lines. The three dotted lines mean the full Predominance of yin (hence called pure yin, earth), appearing as a substance of "material texture". The three lines further indicate that there are three states of material substance. Abstract energy, energy transformed into matter, and the totality of material objects.

The existence

The Chang Tao is the Only Reality From the Ch'ang Tao emerges the Tao . From Tao comes the Invisible (Wu) where Undifferentiated Unity prevails and the Visible (Yeu) with the various fields of activity where multiplicity of consciousness is manifested.

Thus, "that" which appears as "being", "existence", is the Tao manifested in the various fields of existence. In the Invisible Field there is perception of the Oneness of existence. In the Visible Fields the being also has an individual consciousness and manifests through a body of mental texture, energy texture, material texture (depending on the field in which it manifests). In the realm of pure yin, the being manifests itself through a carrier of material texture (the body).

Thus, being in the material realm is:

1) Tao.

2) Wu, Three states of conscious unity, (I, Si, Wei).

3) Yeu, (huen), three mental activities.

4) Yeu,  (p'o), three animal activities.

5) Son, body.

Wu - Wei

The Chang Tao is the Only Reality. From Chiang Tao, when it is active (Te) the Tao emerges, and from the Tao everything emerges, develops and returns again to the primordial state. Return is the Way, the natural culmination of evolution. When the Activity (Te) is released it will complete its cycle and return back to the Tao (in Ch'ang Tao). So, we must not interfere in the course of things. This Action is characterized as Wu -Wei (Non-Action) because it occurs spontaneously (chu ran), without any "grab" in the activity or the phenomenon. Everything that appears emerges from the Tao and sinks back into It, it is nothing different.

“Rise to ultimate emptiness

Hold fast in the state of calmness

And you will dominate all phenomena.

I have noticed them as they come back.

See, all things come out of nothing

They return back to the source from which they came.

This return to the source is called Tranquility,

Tranquility is called adaptation to "nature".

Whatever conforms to its "nature" becomes one with the Tao.

When you know the Tao you are enlightened.

To not know it is to walk blindly towards destruction.

He who knows the Tao has understanding.

He who has understanding attains an unbiased universality.

To be so is to be majestic,

To be majestic is to have the nature of Yang,

To have the nature of Yang is to become one with the Tao.

The Tao is eternal and he who knows the Tao well

Although his body dies he is not destroyed."

(TTK, 16).

The Tao only exists, nothing else. The Tao Is the true nature of all beings. All phenomena emerge from Tao, through Te and return to It again. This happens on a global and individual level.

When Te manifests unhindered, when there is Wu-Wei (Non-Action) everything follows its natural course and reaches its natural end, the Tao. But when the Te from Wu -Wei (Non-Action) is diverted to Wei (Action), when there is rapture in the activity, the situation, the phenomenon then there is confusion and the process is complicated.

The Tiers of Wu -Wei

Wu - wei as action (or rather as non-action) is not passive observation of phenomena but disciplined behavior aimed at raising consciousness from the lower functions of existence to the higher, as the Tao. This is done by calming the functions, starting with the lower and outer and progressing progressively to the higher and inner.

Practice consists of not getting attached to anything. The typological levels are:

1) Chiang Tao.

2) Wu, Tai -I, three states ( wu hsin )

3) Yeu, three degrees of hsin calmness.

4) Yeu, three levels of qi calming.

5) Yeu, calmness of the body.

Lao Tzu describes this path in chapter 56:

"Those who know don't talk about it,

Those who chatter know nothing.

Blocked the flow of the senses,

Close all the gates of entry and exit of the will,

Let all the turmoil of the world soften and fade away.

All entanglements, all complications are dissolved

The delusive light of intellect has dimmed,

The split mind, the dust of thought, has settled.

This is called the mystical plane (the mystical unity).

He who has attained mystical unity has neither attachments nor fears, (i.e. he becomes Wei, "non-existent"),

He is offended by nothing, flattered by nothing, (i.e. becomes Si, "without presence"),

He has no gains or losses, (i.e. it becomes I, “without idioms”, “empty”),

And for this very reason he becomes the supreme being (i.e. the Tao)

(TTK, 56).





Our Prayer

In the Kingdom of the Real


In the realm of the Kingdom of the Real, where the boundaries of consciousness dissolve and the oneness of existence prevails, I offer a prayer, a sacred invocation to the depths of the universe:


Oh, Divine Mystery, eternal and boundless,

In the silence of my being, I seek your presence,

A presence that transcends the illusions of duality,

Guide me to the truth of oneness, the essence of reality.


In this journey of awakening, I surrender my limitations,

As I abandon the trappings of the subjective self,

May my perception be cleansed, my understanding expanded,

Reveal to me the inner realms, the depths of existence untapped.


Grant me the grace to perceive beyond the veils of ignorance,

To witness the light of understanding that dispels the darkness,

In this unfoldment of consciousness, let me behold the unity,

The interconnectedness of all beings, an eternal tapestry.


For within this expansive perception, I recognize the sacredness,

Of every personal expression, every manifestation in form,

The body becomes a vessel, a temple of divine manifestation,

A conduit for the universal life to flow and transform.


As I deepen my connection with the universal life force,

I realize the impermanence of the external world's allure,

The true essence lies in the oneness that pervades all existence,

In this realization, I embark on the journey to the inner pure.


In the inner world, perception transcends its former limitations,

Becoming a mirror, reflecting reality with pristine purity,

In this state of stillness, I commune with the divine depth,

Experiencing the fullness of awakening, a profound unity.


Oh, Living Mystery, the source of all creation,

In this sacred union, I dissolve into your divine embrace,

Beyond the realms of perception, existence transcended,

I merge with the eternal truth, the boundless cosmic grace.


May the wisdom of the ages guide my path,

As I navigate the intricate tapestry of life,

Grant me the clarity to perceive the hidden truths,

And the courage to embody them, free from strife.


In humble reverence, I offer this prayer,

To the vastness of the universe, the realm of the Real,

May my journey continue, ever unfolding,

In harmony with the cosmic dance's sacred appeal.

A SYMBOL is not simply what it depicts in a direct view. The "Deciphering" of the Symbol Reveals its Inherent Dynamism, reveals various aspects of the Symbol, various phases, leading to the evolution of Consciousness towards Integral Understanding.
In the TREE OF LIFE where the God-Man is Depicted, there exist (and are revealed to whoever has the "Key") the Various Phases of the Inner Evolution of Consciousness:
1. GODMAN (God-Man)
So it is the Symbol, at the same time, the Understanding of Reality, the Way of Life and the Completion of Being.

True Meditation

The Essence of True Meditation: Embracing Stillness in the Present Moment



In our fast-paced and hectic lives, finding moments of stillness and inner peace becomes increasingly important. True meditation offers a gateway to a state of being that transcends mere action or activity. It is a profound experience of absolute stillness and pure presence, where we exist and perceive without being dependent on external stimuli or the content of our thoughts. In this blog post, we will explore the essence of true meditation and how it can bring us closer to a deeper sense of freedom and self-awareness.


The Nature of True Meditation:

1. Beyond Processes and Techniques:

   - True meditation is not a process or technique to be mastered. It is a state of being that is inherent within each of us.

   - It transcends any path or effort, as it is the ultimate end of all internal and external processes.

   - There is no specific way to reach true meditation, as it is already present within us. It is a matter of returning to our natural state of stillness and presence.


2. Absolute Stillness and Pure Presence:

   - True meditation is characterized by a profound stillness that goes beyond the ceaseless chatter of the mind.

   - It is a state where we exist and perceive without being entangled in the constant evaluation and judgment of our thoughts.

   - In this state, we touch the timeless and experience a taste of true freedom.


3. Reconnecting with Essence:

   - By resting in the present moment and releasing the compulsion to interpret, we reconnect with our essence.

   - In this space of pure presence, we tap into a deeper sense of self-awareness and open ourselves to boundless possibilities.

   - True meditation allows us to transcend limitations and experience a state of wakefulness, awareness, and freedom.


Embracing True Meditation in Daily Life:

1. Cultivating Moments of Stillness:

   - Incorporate short meditation breaks throughout your day, even if it's just a few minutes of consciously focusing on your breath or observing your surroundings.

   - Find a quiet and peaceful space where you can retreat to when needed, allowing yourself to reconnect with the stillness within.


2. Letting Go of Judgment:

   - Practice observing your thoughts without attaching judgments or meanings to them.

   - Recognize that perspectives are subjective and that no single thought can fully encapsulate the wholeness of life.


3. Embracing the Present Moment:

   - Shift your focus from dwelling on the past or worrying about the future to fully experiencing the present moment.

   - Engage in activities mindfully, giving your full attention to each action and savoring the richness of the present experience.



True meditation is a journey into stillness and presence, a state of being that transcends the limitations of the thinking mind. By embracing moments of stillness and reconnecting with our essence, we can experience true freedom and self-awareness. Through regular practice and a conscious effort to live in the present moment, we can integrate the essence of true meditation into our daily lives, bringing about a deeper sense of peace and fulfillment.


What is Enlightenment

What do the Wise Men mean by Enlightenment?

How does the Enlightened, Full Perception of Reality differ from what we all normally perceive?

There is a difference? Or are these all fairy tales?

There is a difference. And can someone distinguish it.

1. Enlightened Perception is objective activity. There is a Clear, Unseen Presence. There is no observer, no self. Things are "remote". Everything works by itself. There is complete silence, tranquility.

2. The "Presence" of an Observer, who objectively sees what is happening, without participating, is not Enlightenment, it is Disciplined Enlightenment. It is not a Pure State but slightly adulterated by the "Presence" of the Observer.

3. Most of us humans have a strong presence, a formed ego, a constant flow of thought, feelings and sensations. We strongly distort the perception of reality. We are actually daydreaming. We may have the impression that we are awake, present, mentally active, think that we understand reality, but unfortunately we are inside the thought, inside the dream.

In conclusion, there are gradations in the perception of reality. Most situations are adulterated, with the least or most presence of individuality. The Path to Full Perception is precisely the liberation from all factors that distort our perception
