Hello Goodbye

In Uncategorized on May 29, 2011 at 9:19 am

My blog Tao Wow took me from a time of realization through many times of confusion as I read others words on realization and at times found that misinterpretation was enough to draw me towards bondage again. On the whole though Tao Wow had very strong posts pointing to the awakened state and at some point I felt it was time to leave it behind and so I moved to Daily Cup of Tao.

Daily Cup of Tao was an attempt to condense awakened ideas to short daily pointers and I had the idea that on completing the blog I’d have nothing left to say. Completing Daily Cup of Tao after one year and roughly 365 posts I took a break.

After the break came Zen in Modern Life, an idea where I would leave the computer and blogging behind and just live, occasionally stopping by to post something. About this time I am noticing a complete lack of an urge to write and the blog is likely, though not surely, to grind to a halt.

Why?

Why?

About aged 2 you learned this word “why” and started using it.

It is time to stop asking why.

Never say or ask why again.

There is nothing to be explained, nothing that could be any other way.

Secrets and lies and how wrong is right

In Uncategorized on May 15, 2011 at 2:36 am

This is it. This is as it as it gets.

The secret to changing yourself for the better be that to follow modern day squelch of The Secret disclosed in the book by Rhonda Byrne, or the olden days dust of The Buddha, or any way in between, from self improvement, fighting the oppressive system, making for change in the world, becoming physically flexible, dietarily pure, making for change in the inner realm, are pure junk.

All I know who have come to an understanding, a realization of the inexpressible oneness of all, have gotten there nearly always by accident and almost unanimously by not trying at all, simply being and then realizing – ‘Oh, yes, indeed, this is it, how simple it always was.’

Trying is failing as it is a mind made stretch AWAY from the very now.

Tao of Physics

The “Tao of Physics” by Fritjof Capra was a book I read, loved and leant to everyone I met. This new book by Dr Manjir Samanta-Laughton called “Punk Science” is now having the same effect on people.
