The wisdom and insight we can learn from ancient texts is never ending. More than 5000 years ago the ancient Chinese masters of esoteric healing came to the understanding that everything is composed of the same energetic substance called Qi. They observed the oneness and wholeness in all existence and everything is energetically interconnected as one body. The ancient Chinese believed all transformations happened under the influence of Qi. Birth, aging and death of all things with Heaven and Earth, including wind, water, mountains, forest, humans, animals and insects are caused by and formed out of Qi. Qi is the constant energy motion within all things.
One ancient Chinese text of mystery and beauty is the The Daodejing, believed to be written by the sage Lao Tzu. It is the most translated text into English next to the Bible. Daoism is the second of the three major philosophies of China. The Daodejing responds to the political, family centered morality of Confucius; rejecting man-made hierarchies and arguing the value of simplicity and humility over power and ambition. It can be compared today with Capitalism and Spirituality. The dao is the way of nature in a universe that consists of opposites in harmony, and de (virtue, integrity) is an innate human strength. Following the dao brings humans freedom, serenity, and longevity. The original conception of Dao was simply the observation that reality has a certain way about it. The “Way’ encompasses all of existence. Some may call it the way to God, an atheist may call it the laws of nature, all pointing to the same thing, something I call Infinite Intelligence.
The Dao can be considered as two-fold, one represented by the law of physics describing the universe and it’s manifestations such as energy and light; and at the personal level describing the human sphere and its manifestation such as our thoughts, emotions and actions. The Daodejing or Tao Te Ching was trying to tell us these principles. If we can understand these forces are inseparable, the physical and metaphysical, it will make our spiritual journey richer and more fruitful.
If one looks for Dao, there is nothing solid to see; If one listens for it, there is nothing loud enough to hear. Yet if one uses it, it is inexhaustible.
