The T’ai Chi Chih practices are designed to activate, circulate and balance the Divine Energy (CHI) lying dormant in each one of us. (TCC p. 6)

slide10

A long time practitioner of T’ai Chi Chih will know well that the goal is to unite the Divine Energy within each one of us with the Universal Energy. (TCC p. 6)

slide11

The closer we are to Joy (not pleasure), the nearer we are to Reality, God, or whatever we want to call It. A gloomy, unhealthy Sage would be a contradiction. (SO p.31)

slide12

The Zen view is that we create ourselves in every moment (SO p. 13)

JOY becomes our natural heritage.

(SO p. 23)

slide13

Tantrapromises that every cell in the body can be brought to a point of singing with JOY (SO p.18)

As the Zen Master Seigensaid as he was dying, “Better than Zen Doctrine, the Joy of Living.” (SO p.33)

HEALING WITH JOY.

One with all life: Happy am I.

One with all life: Healthy am I.

One with all life: Holy am I. (Ref.)

One with the earth: Joyous am I.

One with the sun: Joyous am I.

One with the sky: Joyous am I. (Ref.)

Free as the breeze: Joyous am I.

Free as the clouds: Joyous am I.

Right as the rain: Joyous am I. (Ref.)

slide17

EGO

Dualistic Thought

slide18

Where there is an artificial high there is an artificial low; only True Joy which is not the result of some action is different. (SO p. 138)

slide19

Our economic life is based on selfishness in the form of heartless competition and this is the opposite of an enlightened point of view. (SO p.13)

Until all have some idea of interrelatednes, there will be wars, suffering, and injustice. (SO p.16)

slide20

How do we live in the CHI rather than in the Ego?

By the Word of GOD, the CHI, truly enfleshed in each and every person.

slide21

Why make spiritual progress?

Because it is the only way to JOY. (SO p.138)

slide22

To look down on another man or culture is to insult God. (XX C. Psalms p. 5)

If you dislike people, how can you love God? (XX C. Psalms p. 38)

slide23

Man is sure he’s the center of everything, made in God’s image when in truth… Churches perpetuate this egotism. (XX C. Psalms p. 38)

slide24

Without compassion, there is no Wisdom. Accumulation of knowledge can be like over-eating. Let “What is” shine thru in the Silence; It’s always there anyway. (XX C. Psalms p. 6)

slide25

“JOY” is always there;

it only has to be uncovered. (XX C. Psalms p. 7)
