SOUND
Wind in the cave,
Movement in stillness
Power in silence

In a cave, all outer sounds are smothered by rock and earth. but this makes the sound of ones own heartbeat and breath audible. In the same way, contemplative stillness turns us away from every day clamor but allows us to hear the subtle in our own lives.

When listening not with the ear but with the spirit, one can percieve the subtle sound. by entering into that sound.we enter into supreme purity. That is why so many religious traditions pray, sing, or chant as a prelude to silence. they understand that the repetion and absorbtion of sound leads to sacredness itself.

The deepest sound is silence. This may seem paradoxical only if we regardmsilence as an absence of life and vibration. But for the meditatorsilence is sound unified with all of its opposites. It is both sound and soundless, and it is in this confluence that the power of meditation emerges;;;

EMERGING
Thunder and rai at night
Growth comes with a shock
Expression and duration
Appear in the first moment
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Things cannot remain in stillness forever. Winter storms may destroy some things, but they always prepare the way for life. If things are swept away, its appropriate. There must be an opetunity for new living things to emerge and begin their own cycle.
All growth comes with a shock. When a sprout breaks its caseing and forces its way to the surface of the earth, is it the climax to a long and deep accumalation of life force. We may think think that it camme up suddenly, but in actuality, it emerged as the product of unseen and subtle cycles.
When the seedlings appears, it carries with it the complete pattern for its growth, prehapseven the markings of an enormous tree. Although time and right conditions are necessary, neither of those factors add anything to the inherent nature of the seedling. it completely embodies its destiny. therfore, the growth and the character of the plant- and its very life= are all present at the moment of emerging;;

Taoism, or Daoism, (pronounced "Dowism") originated with the teachings of Lao-Tse, born in 604 BC as a contemporary of Confucius. Both men lived in a time of fierce feudal warring in China, and both sought ways to adopt more peaceful alternatives to constant strife.

Tao, or 'The Way", taught inwardness and harmony with the self as a means to achieving balance & harmony with others and the natural world. The basic principles of Taoism were first written down in a short text, Tao Te Ching, by Lao-Tse in the 6th century. A century later, its author was being worshiped as a diety and Taoism officially recognized as a state religion within China.

Today, Taoism is regarded as one of the three great religions emanating from China along with Buddhism and Confucianism, and is most recognized in the West by its well known Yin Yan symbol, yin yang representing the universal balance of complementary opposites, i.e., night and day, hot and cold, male and female.

Taoism currently claims about 20 million followers, mostly in Taiwan, in mainland China, and Southeast Asia.

Western countries, particularly in the US and Canada, have also come to increasingly adopt the health & exercise techniques that have sprung from the study of Taoism. These include the study of Tai Chi, a rhythmic exercise that gently tones muscles and increases circulation, as well as recognition of the beneficial effects found in acupuncture, herbalism, and holistic medical practices followed by many adherents of traditional Chinese medicine.

Friends,

OM SHANTI........

I am The Soul .....and My Soul is a Peaceful Soul.....

When I will meet any person.....I will say....'' OM SHANTI''......instead of GOOD MORNING Or GOOD NIGHT.....

Why ?....Because You are also a Peaceful Soul......So just to remember that we are not this body but just to spend our Karmic baggage we have taken our Body from the Nature as a Loan.....all the Five elements we have taken as a loan and when we have finished or balance our Karmic records then we will leave this body.... so we are not this body.....and this is the main lesson we can learn here.....WE ARE NOT THIS BODY.....We are only Pure Peaceful, Knowledgeful Souls, Full of Love and Light, always Blissful, Powerful and were totally pure when separated from the Divine.....

So Say.....OM SHANTI.......

OM SHANTI.........OM SHANTI .........OM SHANTI......
