Tao Meditation Leading to Mystic Realization

The Six Steps as clarified by Lao Tzu and his followers

Concentrate on the centre of your own being

"Can you concentrate without deviating?"

Be aware of your breathing experience

"In attuning your breathing to induce tenderness, can you become like a new-born baby?"

Purify your mind

"In cleansing and purifying the Mystic Mirror, can you make it free from all stain?"

Love without interfering

"In loving the people and ruling the state, can you practice non-interference?"

Allow your softer, more intuitive, and less dominating feminine qualities to rise to the fore, so that you're surrendering rather than dominating, receiving rather than broadcasting, loving rather than fighting.

"When the Heavenly Gate opens and closes, can you play the party of the Female?" (As the Heavenly Gate opens and you enter a mystic state of consciousness, can you surrender to this experience rather than try to manipulate it?)

Nurture balance

"When your light shines forth in all directions, can you ignore it with perfect equanimity?" (Can you remain balanced and unattached when you enter into a deep spiritual state of being and reached a high level of realization?)

 

Ancient Taoist Meditation

I close my eyes... and see clearly...

I stop trying to listen... and hear truth...

I am silent... and my heart sings...

I seek no contact... and find union...

I am still... and move forward...

I am gentle... and need no strength...

I am humble... and remain whole...
