Searching For The Ultimate Truth about Life
You know that you are alive, but do you know where you came from or where you are going? What on earth is your life for? Have you found a deep, meaningful purpose for living yet?
My core goal in all of my teaching is to share the truth about Life Itself with anyone who is ready to hear it. This truth is linked to an all-embracing and unchanging reality that covers everything. This ultimate truth can never be properly described or even named, but Taoists call it The Tao.
There is no truth in normal human existence because none of us really knows anything about life anymore. But a few human beings do search for the true meaning of life and some eventually find it. At the core of all of the practices I teach is a pursuit of the ultimate truth about life. I also aim to raise my students’ consciousness until they connect to a natural state of goodness in which everything that we do is supported by life itself. This natural goodness has nothing to do with morality or with the normal ways in which we judge life to be good or bad. Natural goodness lies way beyond all of the laws this world obeys.
Human beings are such an aggressive species. We have killed each other by the millions and no other species has ever done that. We are the most intelligent species on earth, but also the most dangerous. But we do at least have an opportunity to connect to a natural goodness in life and when we do so, we just have to be benign and truly helpful in this world. Whereas, whenever you are disconnected from Life Itself, you just cannot be naturally good, you can only try to be good – which is not the same thing at all.
All those beautiful seekers who comes on my courses or retreats are ‘good’ people, but they still suffer because they are not yet fully aligned with life and so they are inevitably fearful and defensive. All human beings are fearful because they have separated themselves from the whole.
We all long to express our inner beauty, but first we have to learn how to align to the truth so that we can dwell in perfect peace in the midst of chaos. My ultimate aim as an Infinite Tai Chi Master and spiritual mentor is to restore natural peace and harmony to our troubled planet through my peaceful, radiant presence.
If you cannot hold your inner peace as you go out into the world, you will just keep getting sucked into other people’s fearful dramas and conflicts. But if you breathe consciously and then connect your mind and heart to a deep inner peace at the core of your being you will find it much easier to refuse to judge everyone whom you meet. As you learn the miraculous arts of forgiveness and non-judgement, others will feel safe in your presence, rather than tensing up and feeling defensive. If you try to control or overpower other people, they will inevitably feel vulnerable in your presence, and if someone is afraid of you, they can never really learn from your example. So please practise extending a genuinely non-judgemental warm welcome to everyone you meet.
You need to keep cultivating tremendous inner strength and peace for quite some time before you can really extend peace to anyone else. You need to be a strong, radiant person before you will feel safe enough to give others the space to be themselves. So few individuals on our planet emanate perfect peace that I always give heartfelt thanks when I meet someone like this. Demonstrating the power of perfect peace and harmony may sound attractive, but I can assure you that it is really challenging to do day in and day out.
The Radiant Warrior Path
We all face a long hard battle to transform our fearful self-centred personality-self into a fearless Radiant Warrior, because part of our own mind is so against us. We are so good at sabotaging ourselves that most of us cannot even gracefully accept a genuine compliment. Someone says to us, ‘You look radiant today,’ and we think that they are either crazy or trying to manipulate us in some way – how sad!
If we are ever to find lasting peace and true freedom, we have to take a vow to transcend human suffering in all its many guises. We have to commit to awakening and self-healing until we become compassionately aware of the depths of human suffering. Most people are only really aware of their own suffering, and so they are only dedicated to serving themselves, but those of us who practise The Infinite Arts long term take a vow to selflessly serve humanity. But before we can be of real service in this world, we first have to become spiritually awake. We need to keep raising our vibration and consciousness until we feel safe and empowered before we will stand any real chance of empowering others.
But remember, never try to tell anyone else how to lead their life – unless they specifically ask you for your advice – and even then, be very cautious! Just do your best to assist others by blessing them unconditionally with love and light. Do everything in your power to avoid worrying about your loved ones, because the energy of fear is very low and disempowering, whereas the energy of unconditional love is high and miraculous. Instead of focusing on others’ need to change, just keep bringing everything back to yourself and vowing to rise above all of your own crazy thoughts and unskilled behaviour without feeling guilty about being a paid up member of the human race!
Before we can rise above human consciousness up to the level of the ultimate truth, we first have to learn how to be a successful human being! So, each day of your life please do something to strengthen your physical body, calm your mind and begin to tame your volatile human emotions.
We all have work to do to transcend low level human instincts and desires. We cannot just change our thoughts, we also have to strengthen and open our 7 major energy centres so that we can begin to rise above all of our survival issues that are associated with the base centre, and all of our egoic desires that are linked to our solar plexus centre. We then have to open and strengthen our three higher centres so that we can connect to love and light and bring this miraculous energy down into the world to support our own future well-being and the well-being of all sentient beings.
Is this a lot to do in one short lifetime? Yes, in fact it is almost ‘Mission Impossible’! But those rare individuals who commit to transcending their low level fearful and aggressive egoic consciousness so that they can become a genuine light worker of some kind in a world crying out for help, are supported by a higher power that is infinitely patient and infinitely wise. So please commit to healing and strengthening yourself day in and day out as you keep searching for the ultimate truth until it finally and miraculously dawns into your consciousness and you realise that you are truly blessed beyond measure.
Love and Light,
