Reentry into the World
Remember all things pass … the sunset does not last all evening.
When the sun reaches the zenith
It begins to descend
When the moon becomes full
When the cup is full
It must be emptied
In order to be replenished
Sharp edges do not last
Retire when the work is done
This is the way of Heaven
Let go lightly
Reentering the world of 10,000 things is one of the most important stages of the session. This is the time of re-imprinting the mind from old habits and structured patterns … a time to apply new-found wisdom. This time of the trip will set the stage for how you live life until your next journey.
Remember the lesson of water …
In the stream
Close to earth
Flow freely without attachment
Enjoy the sacred smoke … it is your friend … it keeps the candle lit longer. Be mellow.
Remain grateful for your ego-death and embrace your new freedom.
“Celebrate your victory
With funeral rites
For your slain illusions”
Be thankful for this wondrous, beautiful life we live. Remain close to nature’s infinite beauty and gifts.
We are all one.
Find your place in Nature’s Symphony. You are an integral element… You are the temporary conductor.
“Just as every point on the surface of a sphere may be seen as the central point of the surface, so … every being in the Cosmos may be seen as its center and ruler.”
Each thing we do affects everything that exists … choose wisely … actions that embody gentleness and kindness are the Way of the Tao. Nature’s message is Peace and Harmony.
Virtue is a heavy stone to be avoided.
Force recoils; use only when necessary and then act consciously with courage.
When in tune with Tao
“Hesitant like one who wades in
A stream at winter
Wary as a man in ambush
Considerate as a welcome guest
Fluid like a mountain stream
Natural as uncarved wood
Floating high like a gull
Unfathomable like muddy water”
Now is the time for good music … natural food … a warm fire … love and sharing with brothers and sisters. Take this time to reflect on the revelations of the day and examine your life with clean lenses … a time for joy and ecstatic play and laughter … let’s dance and sing!
Enjoy the senses … sight … sound … taste … touch … sex!
Make Divine Love with the one you love. Practice a little Tantra … have a heavenly orgasm! It will be the best ever, each time.
The lesson of Tao is found among:
“Gardeners … hermits … cooks
Loafers … amateur musicians
Wanderers who sit by the fire
Those who watch the sunset
Couples who have been in love for years
Smiling men with bad reputations.”
For God’s sake
Nature’s order will prevail
