Cheat code of Tao Credit: Book: TAO TE CHING, By Laozi-Ching, JBS Classics, Oregon,USA
Ch 1.1 The Tao that can be trodden is not the enduring and unchanging Tao. The name that can be named is not the enduring and unchanging name.
- Having no name, it is originator of heaven and earth; having name, it is mother of all things.
- Under these two aspects, it is really the same; but as development takes place, it receives the different names. Together we call them as Mystery. Where the Mystery is the deepest, is the gate of all that is subtle and wonderful.
In today’s context, expressing Tao is similar to Memes.
Ancient sages or mystics gave a symbol ‘ॐ – pronounced as AUM as Ohm in Ohm’s law’ because giving it a name is not possible. Here Chinese is far better than all languages to express Tao. To express by name in word one needs to use at least a consonant and a vowel, or a letter and a sound but it is not two too. Symbol ॐcontains three basic letters/sounds अ, उ, म in Hindi ie A U M.
By Yin and Yang its dual nature is expressed but it is not having any sound.
From two it became three and sound comes in picture or symbol ॐ. From these three whole world was, is being and will be created. So it is called by Lao Tzu, as mother of all.
It is not a path because path has a beginning and an end, but at the same time after seeing Tao one reaches to a destination too immediately then and there, so journey is performed too. A pathless path.
Even expressing Tao in symbol for sound is nearest possible expression of Tao, and so this expression is mother ie ‘ॐ’ and from it all that is existing, in manifested and invisible or form and formless, at present.
1.2……..Together we call them as Mystery. Where the Mystery is the deepest, is the gate of all that is subtle and wonderful.
Take a seed alone and you cannot find even a trace of the tree, but as it meets the soil under favourable conditions and a giant tree sprouts from it – this is Mystery, when two together.
In a human being too birth of a child is under same process but there is another deeper Mystery possible with human being.
When no-mind or witnessing awareness state coincides with egoless state – a deeper Mystery that Tao itself can be glimpsed, is possible. This immediately opens the gate of ‘Kingdom of God-as Jesus described’ to transform a human being into a subtle and wonderful state.
Why it is deeper Mystery? Because no effort is required to win this Jackpot of spiritual/inner world! It is Wu Wei, effortless effort.
This is the Cheat code of Tao.
Just you need to create a situation, like an Artist or Craftsman create to convey his message, like you prepare soil and water the seed, and it happens on its own.
In Japan the Zen people call it that you need not have to sow its seed, just create right soil or situation and wait, it happens. Their quote ‘Sit silently do nothing season comes and the grass grows itself into green.
Tao is maintaining harmony as in a dance, dancer do. A painter’s work can be separated from its painter but a dance is a harmony between two ie dance and dancer.
While we use a mobile the harmony is between 1) mobile with data/digits as its breathing and 2) battery, so without battery it is called as a dead mobile.
Meditation is the tool or cheat code to achieve this invisible treasure by inheritance from God.
Muslims can also understand the concept of Allah through Tao because Tao of Lao Tzu is similar to Allah. Lao Tzu may be called as Mohammad of the China or East.
Awareness meditation (Osho guiding about meditation on YouTube) is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “How meditation affects us?”.
There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step in deciding to add value to life. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation (My experiences shared through a post) helped miraculously. Along with meditation living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful. It is helful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
