An important fact to know and remember is that awakening is 99% of clearing the mind of its negative virtues and egos. When the energy of Kunlun flows through you, the mind and body purify.
The body is a container of mind experience reflecting both positive and negative attributes generated by mind experience. The body purifies with the mind when one or the other releases negativity.
The most important thing is to live your art. “Do” live life simply and treat others with compassion, just as you want people to treat you. Be optimistic about your life and the hidden possibilities KUNLUN System can and will reveal to you.
“Don’t” live with an inflated ego, hating others or your teachers for showing you the path of self-awakening, after-all you picked your path and its direction. Respect those around you, and don’t point fingers at each other. It is so easy to blame others for your weaknesses that you do not want to face.
Look at this world; there is enough pain, hurt, and suffering. Just watch the news. People complain that they do not have this or that, look what others have; some have less than you.
Let us, as KUNLUN Practitioners bring the world to a better place. Our small world is like a large pond, the waters of Kunlun are drops from the Tao, and each of you is a drop. Even though we drop onto different parts of this pond, the ripples are felt across the pond, and as the rains of Tao become heavier and more alive, the ripples will fill the pond, bringing life, joy, and happiness.
You will understand as you go higher within yourself and travel towards the wish-fulfilling gem within the center of your being.
You may “think” you know a lot, but you are just beginning to re-learn upon entering the Tao. Develop compassion to those around you; assist those people who never had the chance to learn what you have had the opportunity to learn.
Treat people with joy and happiness, and it will return to you. Remember awakening means an awakened man or woman who, having done their practice, walks upon the earth with his head bowed in humbleness towards the mystery of the Tao.
I have watched through these few years at the amazing growth of our KUNLUN System community and has spread worldwide, touching the most isolated parts of our little world.
My teachers once said to me that when you teach true and authentic methods of the Tao, many people may and will go against you, wanting in every way to stop its growth, which means that it is doing something positive to those who resist their own spiritual growth. Yet, it has endured and grown despite much negativity directed towards my public teaching of it.
In this regard, Kunlun has become a mirror in which individuals must look deep within themselves. Yes, they may blame you for all they do not want to see because it is easy to blame others instead of taking personal responsibility for one’s own life experiences or actions.
In our KUNLUN Practice, there will be highs and lows. This is the way of the “one law” of nature. But if you live in the moment, unattached to things as they occur, living the Tao, and not just doing it here or there, or once in a while, it will become easier and easier to go through the changes we will experience.
By the way, speaking of attachment, if you get too attached to bliss, it can be addictive, just like a drug. So when you have the bliss experience, feel it unattached. Remember, you are always in control and will be better served if you lead the bliss into emptiness. This “living” of the art of Kunlun makes awakening possible while still in the human body.
In closing, I’d like to share a true story. When I was younger, I visited my friend who could not move his body from the head down. Although he had been this way for ten years, he was so happy, never complained, and had no ego. One day I taught him the arts I knew, and he cried. I asked why he was crying, thinking perhaps he was upset because he could not do what others can do.
He looked at me and smiled, and told me that he was completely free of the mind and body with no attachment to anything. He further explained, “I have all the time in the world to master this art, and I cry because others will never understand how simple and bright life can be if they would only stop and just listen.” We stopped, listened to the trees, wind, the birds in the sky, and silently smiled at one another.
This man reflected the most positive virtues of the Tao. So ask yourself, if this man could discover his own door of the Tao, with such physical limitations, why can’t you. We can move our bodies, use our feelings; we are the Tao. We are blissful and radiant, and we can do anything our minds wish to do. Become unlimited; live each day like it is the first and last day of our lives.
