Der Sinn, den man ersinnen kann,
ist nicht der ewige Sinn;
der Name, den man nennen kann,
ist nicht der ewige Name.

Lebensdaten von Laotse

Der große chinesische Weise und Philosoph Laotse lebte voraussichtlich im 6. Jahrhundert vor Christus. Als der Begründer des Taoismus lehrte er das Tao, das Unbenennbare, den Sinn.

Die subtile Wahrnehmung des Soseins der Dinge

Willst Du etwas schmaler machen,
musst du es sich zuvor ausweiten lassen.
Willst du etwas loswerden,
musst du es zuvor aufbauen.
Willst du etwas stürzen,
musst du es zuvor aufblühen lassen haben.
Das nennt man das verborgene Licht des Soseins der Dinge.
Das Weiche überwindet das Harte.
Das Langsame überwindet das Schnelle.
Lass Dein Wirken ein Geheimnis bleiben.
Zeig den Menschen bloß das Ergebnis.

Gedichte von Laotse

Zufrieden sein heißt, reich zu sein.
Mit Nachdruck etwas durchführen bedeutet Wille.
Seinen Platz nicht zu verlieren, heißt Bestand zu haben.
Sterben und doch weiterleben, bedeutet Unsterblichkeit.

 

Andere zu kennen, bedeutet Weisheit,
sich selbst zu kennen, bedeutet Einsicht.
Andere zu bezwingen, erfordert Kraft,
sich selbst zu bezwingen, erfordert Stärke.

 

Macht der Liebe
Ehre ohne Liebe macht hochmütig.
Macht ohne Liebe macht grausam.
Pflicht ohne Liebe macht verdrießlich.
Besitz ohne Liebe macht geizig.
Glaube ohne Liebe macht fanatisch.
Klugheit ohne Liebe macht betrügerisch.
Wahrheit ohne Liebe macht kritiksüchtig.
Ordnung ohne Liebe macht kleinlich.
Gerechtigkeit ohne Liebe macht hart.
Sachkenntnis ohne Liebe macht rechthaberisch.
Freundlichkeit ohne Liebe macht heuchlerisch.
Verantwortung ohne Liebe macht rücksichtslos.

 

Was noch ruhig ist, lässt sich leicht ergreifen.
was noch nicht hervortritt, lässt sich leicht bedenken.
Was noch zart ist, lässt sich leicht zerbrechen.
Was noch klein ist, lässt sich leicht zerstreuen.
Man muss wirken auf das, was noch nicht da ist.
Man muss ordnen, was noch nicht in Verwirrung ist.

 

Ton knetend formt man Gefäße.
Doch erst ihr Hohlraum, das Nichts, ermöglicht die Füllung.
Aus Mauern, durchbrochen von Türen und Fenstern, baut man ein Haus.
Doch erst sein Leerraum, das Nichts, gibt ihm den Wert.
Das Sichtbare, das Seiende, gibt dem Werk die Form.
Das Unsichtbare, das Nichts, gibt ihm Wesen und Sinn.

Zitate von Laotse

Einsichten

  • Zeig einem schlauen Menschen einen Fehler und er wird sich bedanken.
    Zeig einem dummen Menschen einen Fehler und er wird dich beleidigen. Quelle unbekannt

Exzerpte: Laotse (604-531 v. Chr.) chinesischer Weiser, Philosoph, Begründer des Taoismus, Tao te King

 

  • Lass dir Leben und Tod gleich wichtig sein, und dein Verstand wird ohne Angst sein. Nimm gegenüber Wandel und Beständigkeit die gleiche Haltung ein, und nichts wird deine Klarheit trüben. Quelle unbekannt

 

  • "Nichtsein" [O] nenne ich den Anfang von Himmel und Erde,
    "Sein" [1] nenne ich die Mutter der Einzelwesen [Welt].
    Darum führt die Richtung auf das Nichtsein zum Schauen des wunderbaren Wesens,
    die Richtung auf das Sein zum Schauen der räumlichen Begrenztheiten.
    Beides ist eins dem Ursprung nach und nur verschieden durch den Namen.
    In seiner Einheit heißt es das Geheimnis.
    Des Geheimnisses noch tieferes Geheimnis ist das Tor, durch das alle Wunder hervortreten.
    Tao te King Kapitel 1, Übersetzer Richard Wilhelm, 1911

  • Denn Sein und Nichtsein erzeugen einander. Schwer und Leicht vollenden einander. Lang und Kurz gestalten einander. Stimme und Ton vermählen einander. Vorher und Nachher folgen einander. Tao te King Kapitel 2, Übersetzer Richard Wilhelm, 1911

 

  • [D]ie reifen Menschen:
    Sie behaupten ihre Stellung ohne Mühe.
    Verwirklichen ihre Lehre ohne Worte.
    Sind ein Teil von allen Dingen und übersehen keines.
    Sie erzeugen, ohne jedoch zu besitzen.
    Sie handeln ohne Erwartung.
    Sie vollbringen ohne Anspruch auf Verdienst.
    Fürwahr, weil sie kein Verdienst beanspruchen, wächst es ihnen zu. Tao te King, Chinesisch-English R.L. Wing, 1986; Englisch-Deutsch Peter Kobbe, 1987, Kapitel 2

 

 

 

  • Ton knetend formt man Gefäße. Doch erst ihr Hohlraum, das Nichts, ermöglicht die Füllung. […] Das Sichtbare, das Seiende, gibt dem Werk die Form. Das Unsichtbare, das Nichts, gibt ihm Wesen und Sinn. Tao te King, Kapitel 11

  • Der beste Führer ist der, dessen Existenz gar nicht bemerkt wird,
    der zweitbeste der, welcher geehrt und gepriesen wird,
    der nächstbeste der, den man fürchtet und
    der schlechteste der, den man hasst.
    Wenn die Arbeit des besten Führers getan ist, sagen die Leute: »Das haben wir selbst getan«. Tao te King, Kapitel 17

  • Es gibt ein Ding, das ist unterschiedslos vollendet.
    Bevor der Himmel und die Erde waren, ist es schon da, so still, so einsam.
    Allein steht es und ändert sich nicht. Im Kreis läuft es und gefährdet sich nicht.
    Man kann es nennen die Mutter der Welt. Ich weiß nicht seinen Namen. Ich bezeichne es als SINN.
    Laotse (604-531 v. Chr.) chinesischer Weiser, Philosoph, Begründer des Taoismus, Tao te King, Kapitel 25, Übersetzer Richard Wilhelm, 1911

  • So sind die guten Menschen die Lehrer der Nichtguten,
    und die nichtguten Menschen sind der Stoff für die Guten.
    Wer seine Lehrer nicht werthielte und seinen Stoff nicht liebte,
    der wäre bei allem Wissen in schwerem Irrtum.
    Das ist das große Geheimnis. Tao te King, Kapitel 27, Übersetzer Richard Wilhelm, 1911

  • Was du zusammendrücken willst, das musst du sich erst richtig ausdehnen lassen.
    Was du schwächen willst, das musst du erst richtig stark werden lassen.
    Was du vernichten willst, das musst du erst richtig aufblühen lassen.
    Wem du nehmen willst, dem musst du erst richtig geben.
    Das heißt Klarheit über das Unsichtbare.
    Das Weiche siegt über das Harte. Das Schwache siegt über das Starke.

    Des Reiches Förderungsmittel darf man nicht den Leuten zeigen.

  • Wer das Lernen übt, vermehrt täglich. Wer den Sinn [= Tao] übt, vermindert täglich. Er vermindert und vermindert, bis er schließlich ankommt beim Nichtsmachen.

  • Das Namenlose ist der Anfang von Himmel und Erde.
    Das Namen-Habende ist die Mutter der abertausend Wesen.
    Darum: Beständiges Nichtbegehren schaut das Geheimste.
    Beständiges Begehren schaut nur das Begrenzte.
    Diese beiden sind desselben Ursprungs und nur durch Namen verschieden.

  • Die Nichtwissenheit wissen, ist das Höchste. Nicht wissen, was Wissen ist, ist ein Leiden. Nur wenn man unter diesem Wissen leidet, wird man frei von Leiden.

Zitate über Heilige Sexualität von Laotse / Huahu jing

  • Obwohl die meisten Menschen ihr gesamtes Leben damit verbringen, ihrem biologischen Impuls zu folgen, ist dies nur ein winziger Teil unseres Wesens. Wenn wir von Samen und Eiern besessen bleiben, sind wir zwar mit dem fruchtbaren Tal der Fortpflanzung der Mysteriösen Mutter verbunden, doch nicht mit ihrem unermesslichen Herzen und allwissenden Geist.
    Wenn wir uns mit ihrem Herzen und Geist vereinigen wollen, müssen wir Yin und Yang in uns selbst integrieren und ihr Feuer nach oben lenken. Dann haben wir die Macht, mit dem gesamten Wesen der Mysteriösen Mutter zu verschmelzen. Das bedeutet wahre Evolution. Laotse, Übersetzer des Originals Brian Walker, Laotses unbekannte Lehren. Das Hua-Hu Ching, Aurum im Kamphausen Verlag, Paragraph 65, 1. Auflage 10. September 2003

 

  • Die drei Arten der Integration von Yin und Yang sind:
    1. Die erste Integration von Yin und Yang ist die Vereinigung von Samen und Ei im Mutterleib.
    2. Die zweite Integration von Yin und Yang ist die sexuelle Verbindung des reifen Mannes mit der reifen Frau.
      Beide [1. und 2.] haben mit Fleisch und Blut zu tun, und alles, was in diesem Reich empfangen wird, muss sich eines Tages wieder auflösen und vergehen.
    3. Erst die dritte Integration bringt etwas Unsterbliches hervor […] Das neue Leben, das von dieser letzten Integration erschaffen wird, ist sich seiner selbst bewusst, doch ohne Ego ist es fähig, in einem Körper zu leben ohne anzuhaften. Es wird von Weisheit statt von Emotionen geleitet. Es ist vollständig und tugendhaft und kann niemals sterben. Laotse, Übersetzer des Originals Brian Walker, Laotses unbekannte Lehren. Das Hua-Hu Ching, Aurum im Kamphausen Verlag, Paragraph 66, 1. Auflage 10. September 2003

 


Postkartenszene am Badestrand, Kalifornien
Erstes Jahrzehnt des 20. Jahrhunderts
  • Weil immer höhere Vereinigungen von Yin und Yang für die Empfängnis immer höheren Lebens notwendig sind, können einige Lernende in der Kunst der gegenseitigen Kultivierung unterwiesen werden, in der Yin und Yang unmittelbar in das Tai Chi [die disziplinierte Übung] des Geschlechtsverkehrs integriert werden […] Wenn wahre Tugend und wahre Meisterschaft zusammen kommen, […] kann die Übung zu einem profunden Gleichgewicht der grob- und feinstofflichen Energien des Lernenden führen [andernfalls kann sie eine zerstörerische Wirkung haben]. Laotse, Übersetzer des Originals Brian Walker, Laotses unbekannte Lehren. Das Hua-Hu Ching, Aurum im Kamphausen Verlag, Paragraph 67, 1. Auflage 10. September 2003

 

 

  • Der Zugang eines Menschen zur Sexualität ist ein Kennzeichen seiner Entwicklungsebene. Wenig entwickelte Menschen praktizieren gewöhnlichen Geschlechtsverkehr. Sie überbetonen die Geschlechtsorgane und vernachlässigen dabei die übrigen Organe und Systeme des Körpers.
    Die gesamte angesammelte Körperenergie wird auf einen Schlag entladen, und auch die feinstofflichen Energien werden gleichermaßen vergeudet und zerstreut. Dies ist ein großer Rückschritt.
    Für diejenigen, die nach den höheren Regionen des Lebens streben, gibt es die engelsgleiche gegenseitige Kultivierung. Weil jeder Teil des Körpers, des Verstandes und des Geistes sich nach der Integration von Yin und Yang sehnt, wird der engelsgleiche Geschlechtsverkehr mehr vom Geist und weniger von den Geschlechtsorganen gelenkt.
    Während gewöhnlicher Geschlechtsverkehr anstrengend ist, ist engelsgleiche Kultivierung ruhig, entspannt und natürlich. Wo gewöhnlicher Geschlechtsverkehr nur die Geschlechtsorgane miteinander verbindet, verbindet die engelsgleiche Kultivierung Geist mit Geist, Verstand mit Verstand und jede Zelle des einen Körpers mit jeder Zelle des anderen Körpers. Der Höhepunkt liegt nicht in der Auflösung, sondern in der Integration ["nicht in der Trennung, sondern in der Verschmelzung"?] und ist eine Gelegenheit für einen Mann und eine Frau, einander zu transformieren und in das Reich von Glückseligkeit und Ganzheit zu erheben. Laotse, Übersetzer des Originals Brian Walker, Laotses unbekannte Lehren. Das Hua-Hu Ching, Aurum im Kamphausen Verlag, Paragraph 69, 1. Auflage 10. September 2003

 

  • Die Fesseln der Leidenschaft und des Begehrens weben ein festes Netz um uns […] Die Falle der Dualität ist hartnäckig. Gebunden, starr und gefangen kann man keine Befreiung erlangen. Durch gegenseitige Kultivierung ist es möglich, das Netz zu entwirren, die Starrheit aufzuweichen und die Falle zu öffnen. Indem wir unsere Yin-Energie in der Quelle des universellen Lebens aufgehen lassen und aus der gleichen Quelle die Yang-Energie beziehen, lassen wir die Individualität hinter uns, und unser Leben wird rein und natürlich. Frei von Ego leben wir natürlich, arbeiten rechtschaffen, werden von unerschöpflicher Vitalität erfüllt und sind für immer vom Rad der Geburt und des Todes befreit.
    Wir müssen eines verstehen: Spirituelle Freiheit und Einheit mit dem Tao (Dao) sind keine zufälligen Geschenke, sondern der Lohn für die bewusste Wandlung und Entwicklung des Selbstes. Laotse, Übersetzer des Originals Brian Walker, Laotses unbekannte Lehren. Das Hua-Hu Ching, Aurum im Kamphausen Verlag, Paragraph 70, 1. Auflage 10. September 2003

  • (The Tao) produces (all things) and nourishes them; it produces them and does not claim them as its own; it does all, and yet does not boast of it; it presides over all, and yet does not control them. This is what is called 'The mysterious Quality' (of the Tao). Tao Te Ching, verse 10

    If you want to become full, let yourself be empty.
    If you want to be reborn, let yourself die.
    If you want to be given everything, give everything up.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 22, written by Lao-tzu, translator Stehphen Mitchell, updated 20. July 1995

 

  • Gravity is the root of lightness; stillness, the ruler of movement. Tao Te Ching, verse 26

 

  • A good traveler has no fixed plans
    and is not intent upon arriving.
    A good artist lets his intuition
    lead him wherever it wants.
    A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
    and keeps his mind open to what is.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 27, written by Lao-tzu, translator Stehphen Mitchell, updated 20. July 1995

 

  • Know the personal, yet keep to the impersonal: accept the world as it is. If you accept the world, the Tao will be luminous inside you and you will return to your primal self. Tao Te Ching, verse 28, written by Lao-tzu, translator Stehphen Mitchell, updated 20. July 1995

 

  • Do not rejoice over victory.
    With the loss of others weep with sorrow and grief.
    After winning a battle, do not celebrate, observe the rites of a funeral.
    One who is bound to action, proud of victory, and delights in the misfortune of others will never gain a thing from this world below Heaven.
    Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, verse 31

 

  • When one is about to take an inspiration, he is sure to make a (previous) expiration;
    when he is going to weaken another, he will first strengthen him;
    when he is going to overthrow another, he will first have raised him up;
    when he is going to despoil another, he will first have made gifts to him:
    this is called 'Hiding the light (of his procedure).'
    The soft overcomes the hard; and the weak the strong. Tao Te Ching, verse 36

 

  • Simplicity without a name Is free from all external aim. With no desire, at rest and still, All things go right as of their will. Tao Te Ching, verse 37

 

  • The highest virtue is to act without a sense of self.
    The highest kindness is to give without condition.
    The highest justice is to see without preference.
    When the Tao is forgotten, there is righteousness.
    When righteousness is forgotten, there is morality.
    When morality is forgotten, there is law and ritual.
    Law and ritual are the husk of true faith, and the beginning of chaos.
    Therefore the Master follows his own nature and not the trappings of life.
    The Master concerns himself with the depths and not the surface, with the fruit and not the flower.
    He has no will of his own. He dwells in reality, and lets all illusions go.
    Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, verse 38

Women and Motherhood:

Laozi believed that females are the mothers of all things and all human beings. In accordance with Dao (Tao), which generates everything, females are those that produce all things. Without females i.e. mothers, there would be no creation and world.

  • The beginning of the world
    May be regarded as the Mother of the world.
    To apprehend the Mother,
    Know the offspring.
    To know the offspring
    Is to remain close to the mother,
    And free from harm throughout life.
    Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, verse 52

 

  • The perception of what is small is (the secret of) clear-sightedness; the guarding of what is soft and tender is (the secret of) strength. Tao Te Ching, verse 52

 

  • When things have become strong, they (then) become old, which may be said to be contrary to the Tao. Whatever is contrary to the Tao soon ends. Tao Te Ching, verse 55

  • [T]he female always overcomes the male by her stillness. Stillness may be considered (a sort of) abasement. Tao Te Ching, verse 61

 

  • That whereby the rivers and seas are able to receive the homage and tribute of all the valley streams, is their skill in being lower than they; – it is thus that they are the kings of them all. So it is that the sage (ruler), wishing to be above men, puts himself by his words below them, and, wishing to be before them, places his person behind them. Tao Te Ching, verse 66

The Three Treasures

Love, moderation, humility

  • When people hear about the Great Integrity, they say it is useless folly. Because it is not like anything in the world we know, they also find it inconceivable.
    On the contrary! The Great Integrity has given us three treasures to cherish:
    The first is love.
    The second is moderation.
    The third is humility.

    If you love, you will be fearless.
    If you are moderate, you might always sense abundance in life.
    If you live in humility, you will be widely trusted.
    But you will not have the capacity to love if you are fearful.
    Even worse, if you are fearless and without love, you will always be courting disaster.
    If you live in insufficiency, you have no opportunity to be moderate.
    If you live in overabundance, you not only live immoderately,
    but are always courting disaster.
    If no one trusts you, then compensatory ego will preclude humility.
    If everyone trusts you, and you lack humility, you will always court disaster.
    The three treasures are practical guides to the Great Integrity.
    The greatest foolishness is to live without them.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 67, translated by Ralph Alan Dale

 

  • There is no calamity greater than lightly engaging in war. To do that is near losing (the gentleness) which is so precious. Thus it is that when opposing weapons are (actually) crossed, he who deplores (the situation) conquers. Tao Te Ching, verse 69

 

  • Courage, if carried to daring, leads to death; courage, if not carried to daring, leads to life.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 73, translated by D. T. Suzuki and Paul Carus, 1913
    He who is brave in daring, is killed. He who is brave in not-daring, will live.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 73, translated by Jan J. L. Duyvendak, 1954
    Reckless bravery leads to death; careful bravery leads to life.
    Tao Te Ching, verse 73, translated by Tim Chilcott, 2005
    Courage carried to daring leads to death. Courage restrained by caution leads to life.

    [A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live.]

  • It is the way of Heaven not to strive, and yet it skilfully overcomes; not to speak, and yet it is skillful (in obtaining a reply); does not call, and yet men come to it of themselves. Its demonstrations are quiet, and yet its plans are skillful and effective. The meshes of the net of Heaven are large; far apart, but letting nothing escape. Tao Te Ching, verse 73

  • Water is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. The wise leader knows that yielding overcomes resistance, and gentleness melts rigid defences. The leader does not fight the force of the group’s energy, but flows and yields and absorbs and let’s go. A leader must endure a great deal of abuse. If the leader were not like water, the leader would break. The ability to be soft makes the leader a leader. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.

Conventions are fealty and honesty gone to waste,
They are the entrance of disorder.

Stays with the fruit beyond the flowering:

Three Daoist types of Yin ∞ Yang integration and sacred sexuality

  • Although most people spend their entire lives following the biological impulse, it is only a tiny portion of our beings. If we remain obsessed with seeds and eggs, we are married to the fertile reproductive valley of the Mysterious Mother but not to her immeasurable heart and all-knowing mind.
    If you wish to unite with her heart and mind, you must integrate yin and yang within and refine their fire upward. Then you have the power to merge with the whole being of the Mysterious Mother. Hua Hu Ching. The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker, verse 651, HarperOne, San Francisco, 1995, Harper Collins, revised edition 4. August 20092

 


Poppies, Isles of Shoals, 1890
Frederick Childe Hassam (1859-1935) American painter
  • Three types of integration of Yin and Yang
    1. The first integration of yin and yang is the union of seed and egg within the womb.
    2. The second integration of yin and yang is the sexual union of the mature male and female.
      Both of these are concerned with flesh and blood, and all that is conceived in this realm must one day disintegrate and pass away.
    3. It is only the third integration which gives birth to something immortal.
      In this integration, a highly evolved individual joins the subtle inner energies of yin and yang under the light of spiritual understanding. Through the practices of the Integral Way he refines his gross, heavy energy into something ethereal and light. This divine light has the capability of penetrating into the mighty ocean of spiritual energy and complete wisdom that is the Tao. The new life created by the final integration is self-aware yet without ego, capable of inhabiting a body yet not attached to it, and guided by wisdom rather than emotion. Whole and virtuous, it can never die. Hua Hu Ching. The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker, verse 663, HarperOne, San Francisco, 1995, Harper Collins, revised edition 4. August 20094

 

 

  • Because higher and higher unions of yin and yang are necessary for the conception of higher life, some students may be instructed in the art of dual cultivation, in which yin and yang are directly integrated in the tai chi of sexual intercourse. […] If genuine virtue and true mastery come together […] the practice can bring about a profound balancing of the student's gross and subtle energies [otherwise it can have a destructive effect]. Hua Hu Ching. The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker, verse 677, HarperOne, San Francisco, 1995, Harper Collins, revised edition 4. August 20098

 

Peak orgasm: "The peak orgasm" – It is the goal of conventional sex. One applies force and effort to rush to the summit and collapses into a prolonged phase of recovery. Dopamine levels peak and crash accordingly.

  • A person's approach to sexuality is a sign of his level of evolution. Unevolved persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body's other organs and systems. Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged, and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap.9
    Where ordinary intercourse is effortful, angelic cultivation is calm, relaxed, quiet, and natural.
    Where ordinary intercourse unites sex organs with sex organs, angelic cultivation unites spirit with spirit, mind with mind, and every cell of one body with every cell of the other body.
    Culminating not in dissolution but in integration, it is an opportunity for a man and woman to mutually transform and uplift each other into the realm of bliss and wholeness. Hua Hu Ching. The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker, verse 6910, HarperOne, San Francisco, 1995, Harper Collins, revised edition 4. August 200911

 

Valley orgasm: "The valley orgasm" – Taoists taught a non-orgasmic practice. Unconventional sex is very peaceful, ecstatic, extended, merging experience. One reaches a state of non-attachment and deep union while exchanging Divine power. It cannot be forced. It does not trigger high-dopamine spurts.

  • The cords of passion and desire weave a binding net around you. [...] The trap of duality is tenacious. Bound, rigid, and trapped, you cannot experience liberation.
    Through dual cultivation [bonding subtle sexual intercourse] it is possible to unravel the net, soften the rigidity, dismantle the trap.
    Dissolving your yin energy into the source of universal life, attracting the yang energy from that same source, you leave behind individuality and your life becomes pure nature. Free of ego, living naturally, working virtuously, you become filled with inexhaustible vitality and are liberated forever from the cycle of death and rebirth.

We understand people of normal sexuality to be those who have no sexual conflicts of any kind.
Sexual energy is divided into three distinct types.
          1. First: the energy having to do with the reproduction of the race and the health of the physical body in general.
          2. Second: the energy having to do with the spheres of thought, feeling and will.
          3. Third: the energy that is found related with the Divine Spirit of man.
Indeed, sexual energy is without a doubt the most subtle and powerful energy normally produced and transported through the human organism. Everything that a human being is, including the three spheres of thought, feeling and will, is none other than the exact outcome of distinct modifications of sexual energy.

  • Warum Laotse die Moral verurteilt, das ist zunächst ihr formales Prinzip. Die Moral befiehlt. Sie kennt kein Sollen. Sie will Gesetze und Maßstäbe. Aber durch Gesetze und Maßstäbe wird gerade das Gegenteil von dem erreicht, was man will. Je mehr die Gesetze prangen, je lästiger das Sollen sich breit macht, desto mehr gibt es Diebe und Räuber; denn es ist ein Gesetz der Menschennatur, jedem Zwang zu widerstreben. Und der moralische Zwang ist der schlimmste.

Quotes by various other sources

  • Historically, the most influential Chinese perspectives on the issue of gender come from what are commonly referred to as Confucian and Daoist traditions of thought, which take somewhat opposing positions. Many texts associated with Confucianism emphasize yang’s dominant, male-related characteristics, whereas those linked to Daoism, especially the Laozi, reverse this view, finding value in yin’s subordinate, female characteristics. However, it should be noted that Chinese thinkers, regardless of their classification as Confucian or Daoist, generally see the opposing qualities of yin and yang as integral parts of a whole that complement one another. Accordingly, the closest word to "gender" in modern Chinese is xingbie, which can be quite literally understood as a difference (bie) of individual nature or tendencies (xing).

The new monetary system will adopt Daoism, the interaction of Yin and Yang

  • The absence of order is as important as order. Because it is in that interaction [of Yin and Yang] that the flexibility can manifest the resilience to adapt to new circumstances. […] It's the absence of these characteristics that actually gives the flexibility to the system. In our civilisation we only understand efficiency.

The Watercourse Way

  • Lao Tzu called his path 'The Watercourse Way' for many reasons.
    First, water is soft, humble, seeks the lowest place. It may rain on Everest but the water doesn’t remain there; it starts running towards the valley. And in the Valley, too, it will reach the deepest part. It is non-ambitious. It has no ambitions to be the first. To be like water means to be utterly happy in being nobody.
    Second, water means movement. It is always moving, and whenever it is not moving it becomes dirty, impure, even poisonous. It dies. Its life is in movement, in dynamism, in flow. The whole of life is a flow, nothing is static.

Quotes by Katya Walter

Binary chunks ∞ analog flow

  • The ancient Chinese I Ching [expressing binary numbers counting from 0 through 63] provides an astoundingly complete model […] in a clever shorthand that uses binary/digital sequencing plus analog flow. Katya Walter, Ph.D., US American multi-disciplinary scientist, physicist, I Ching scholar, Jungian scholar, A New (and very Old) Model for Nonlinear Computation, presented at Sixth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Tokyo, July 1995

 

  • Chaos theory developed an odd vocabulary where fractals, the Julia and Mandelbrot sets, the butterfly effect and the strange attractor suddenly opened up a new "nonlinear" reality. This fractal development can be found in the DNA structure which Watson and Crick discovered in the 1950s. Amazingly, this phenomenal use of number also exists in the I Ching, developed according to apocryphal Chinese history, in 3322 BCE. Katya Walter, Ph.D., US American multi-disciplinary scientist, physicist, I Ching scholar, Jungian scholar, A New (and very Old) Model for Nonlinear Computation, presented at Sixth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Tokyo, July 1995

 


Water droplet, upward "rebound" jet
surrounded by circular capillary waves
  • [E]ach system – genetic code or I Ching – gives a microcosmic rendition of a larger principle of cochaos theory. Fortunately, these two models, ancient and modern, provide a means to observe a mathematical paradigm that is perhaps inherent in the fabric of the universe itself. Numbers create the patterns of the universe. Analogs form the networks of qualitative resonance in the timing and spacing of matter and energy, while linears develop the discrete sums that quantify units of whatever is being spaced or timed. Together – as analinear number – they give a flowing, connective quality to the universe's discrete quantities. To merge the analog with the linear in cochaos patterning provides a truly universal computation method. Katya Walter, Ph.D., US American multi-disciplinary scientist, physicist, I Ching scholar, Jungian scholar, A New (and very Old) Model for Nonlinear Computation, presented at Sixth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Tokyo, July 1995

 

  • Chaos patterning can predict an overall pattern, but it cannot specify any exact detail of its next manifestation. A mathematician can determine its general form but not the exact contents. Patterned chaos has its own special signature:
    ➤ Order in the midst of apparent disorder
    ➤ Cycling that repeats with continual slight variation
    ➤ Scaling that fits one level into another like nesting boxes
    ➤ Universal applicability.
Katya Walter, Ph.D., US American multi-disciplinary scientist, physicist, I Ching scholar, Jungian scholar, A New (and very Old) Model for Nonlinear Computation, presented at Sixth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, Tokyo, July 1995

 

  • To balance and harmonize the analog and linear functions of number is the special gift of analinear computation. It is evident in the ancient I Ching and in modern DNA. By combining unitized counting with flowing proportions, this paradigm creates nonlinear equations, or more appropriately, analinear equations.

Lao Tzu – background

Laozi [Lao Tzu, Lao Tse, Lao Tu, Lao-Tsu, Laotze, Laosi, Laocius] was a philosopher of ancient China, best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching. His association with the Tao Te Ching has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of philosophical Taoism (pronounced as "Daoism"). He is also revered as a deity in most religious forms of Taoist philosophy, which often refers to Laozi as Taishang Laojun, or "One of the Three Pure Ones".

The new life created by the final integration is self-aware yet without ego, capable of inhabiting a body yet not attached to it, and guided by wisdom rather than emotion. Whole and virtuous, it can never die.

Three mating drives Helen Fisher ∞ Three Daoist types of integration of Yin and Yang


Biology of the human mating drives ∞
Energy of the human melting embrace
Neuroanthropologist and brain researcher Helen Fisher, Ph.D. points out three very strong circuits/drives which have evolved
in the brain of animals and humans. These drives of mating and bonding may lead one to act self sacrificially (dying for the other)
as well as to killing oneself or the other when being rejected.
NOTE: When these three compartmentalized brain systems are not synchronized with each other trouble may well arise.

Study results on three distinct emotion-motivation systems (drives) governing mammalian mating behavior

Mammals and birds have evolved three primary, discrete, interrelated emotion-motivation systems in the brain for mating, reproduction, and parenting: lust, attraction, and male-female attachment. Each emotion-motivation system is associated with a specific constellation of neural correlates and a distinct behavioral repertoire.
  • Lust evolved to initiate the mating process with any appropriate partner;
  • Attraction evolved to enable individuals to choose among and prefer specific mating partners, thereby conserving their mating time and energy;
  • Male-female attachment evolved to enable individuals to cooperate with a reproductive mate until species-specific parental duties have been completed.
The evolution of these three emotion-motivation systems contribute to contemporary patterns of marriage, adultery, divorce, remarriage, stalking, homicide and other crimes of passion, and clinical depression due to romantic rejection.

Pride ⇔ shame

Pride attaches undue importance to the superiority of one's status in the eyes of others.
And
shame is fear of humiliation at one's inferior status in the estimation of others.
When one sets his heart
on being highly esteemed, and achieves such rating,
then he is automatically involved in fear of losing his status.

Lao-Tzu (604-531 BC) Chinese sage, philosopher, founder of Daoism, author of Tao Te Ching [The Book of the Way]

Literature (engl.)

The "I Ching and the Genetic Code" is an important and exciting link between science and spirituality.
Carl Gustav Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz first wrote about the correlation of I Ching and DNA in the 1960's.

The genetic code and the I Ching carry the fractals of chaos theory based on a mathematical structure and fractal patterning. The nonlinear acausal, synchronistic connecting principle and patterning of matter-energy is imprinted in human psyche.

21 The etheric brain activates the energy within the neurons. Consciousness creates neuronal activity. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona seminar unnamed, date unknown

22 Spiritual intention changes the brain's physiology – spiritually oriented people experience things differently than "ordinary” people. The change occurs in the prefrontal cortex, creating an "etheric brain." (Calibrated as a fact.) [The etheric brain does not exist in individuals below 200 LoC.] The shift above LoC 200 speeds up karma. […] Rapid pathway bypasses the emotional centers of the brain. The majority of Homo sapiens do not have an etheric brain. The new species of individuals calibrating over 200 is "homo spiritus."
