To be a Taoist means many things to many people. To be a practitioner of Contemporary Taoism simply means to have realised that we are all minute parts of an indescribably large Whole (the Tao), and to choose therefore to 'Flow Like Water' and live in a spontaneous, natural manner. This blog is about: Personal Growth / Spiritual Development as guided by the principles of Eastern Philosophy, particularly modern philosophical Taoism; Developing constructive habits and achieving success with minimal effort; Meditation - Taoist, Zen or otherwise.

Nourishment and Abundance

Winter is well and truly on its way here is Melbourne, Australia - and with it comes the pleasure of eating vast amounts of warming food. I'd like to take a moment to thank the Universe for the abundant life that some of us are able to enjoy, and to remember those who have been short changed by our foolish governments.

Our happiness is so affected by what we eat and drink, and the things that we think. Moderation is important but a good dose of more extreme dedication can also be a remarkable way to bust through some of those cobwebs that you feel are holding you back. One thing I find is especially effective is sitting down for a longer meditation when you can. By 'longer' I mean more than the usual twenty or thirty minutes of regular meditation - which is definitely recommended - and getting in a good hour long session.

Sit through the fidgets, sit through the drowsiness, sit through the frustration, and eventually a blessing will be bestowed on you. You will find your way through the fog and into the deep centre of your mind. This place is illuminated with the clear light of love, and it is the part of you that is contentedly connected with the rest of the human super-consciousness, or God, or the Tao - whatever term you prefer.

It can be difficult to get there - but the more often you make the effort to visit this inner-utopia, the more of this peaceful, loving energy you bring with you back into the outer-world - and the more of this positive energy there is in the world, the sooner we actually will make war, poverty, sickness and unhappiness history.

Forget guilt, forget this, forget that. Just sit and know that you are perfect.

I am personally having a ball of it right now, enjoying my work and excited about the future, both near and distant.

By the way, any good web designers out there willing to help me spread the good vibes? As you can probably tell by looking at my rather heavy-handed blog renovations (which took me an inordinate amount of time) I could use a little help setting up site-frameworks from somebody who knows what they're doing :)
