Deeper meaning meditation on Tao Te Ching. – Week 9.
The Three Treasures of Tao Te Ching – Jing – Creative Energy (The Candel) , Qi – Life-Force Energy (The Flame) , Shen – Spiritual Energy (The Light).
The message that is at the centre of the centre of the Tao Te Ching brought to us by Lao Tzu.
If Jing is the wax and wick of a candle, and Qi its flame, then Shen is the radiance given off by the flame – what allows it to actually be a source of light. And in the same way that the light from a candle depends upon the wax, wick, and flame, so does healthy Shen depend upon the cultivation of Jing and Qi. It is only through the temple of a strong and balanced body that a radiant Spirit can shine.
Shen is the spiritual radiance that can be seen shining through a person’s eyes – the emanation of a universal loving-kindness, compassion and enlightened power; of a heart brimming with wisdom, forgiveness and generosity.
Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu Chapter 10, Nurture the darkness of your soul
Can one unite the body and the spirit as one and embrace the “Oneness” without departing from the great Tao?
Can one achieve harmony with such gentleness by holding on to the true spirit within as if the innocence of an infant?
Can one free oneself from worldly knowledge and cleanse one’s mind, so that no faults shall be made?
Can a ruler love his people by governing with the natural Way without personal intention?
Can the mystic gate to all life essence be opened or closed without the virtue of the mysterious nature?
Can one gain the insight of nature and become a wise person without the effort of action?
The mysterious nature creates and nurtures all things without the desire to possess them. It performs with all efforts without claiming for credit. It flourishes all beings without the intention to take control of. Such is the “Mystic Te” or “Mystic Virtue.”
