The blog site’s principal author is a recognized master of this system. His articles and essays posted here are insights gained from his understanding, and compiled in a manner that is applicable to – and reflective of – the modern world.

This site is primarily intended to raise awareness among the general public of truth — in all its forms — and its Universal applicability. It is also implemented to assist in the understanding of esoterica by expounding upon it’s ancient principles in a manner comprehensive to modern Western Culture, utilizing current affairs, lifestyle values, science, philosophy, and familiar references from modern religion and other ancient traditions still valued by the modern world such as Taichi, Yoga, Buddhism, and Gnosticism.
The principal author wishes it to be known that while he sometimes writes or posts guest articles in reference to scientific and/or psychological findings as a means of supporting his points, the author himself is not a scientist or accredited psychologist — nor does he mean to imply that he is an expert in either field.

The Great Aim of Taichi Tao: Realization, Transformation, and Liberation for the sake of All Beings
We take the Great Aim of TaiChi Tao as that of paramount importance. Within the practice of TaiChi Tao we have an opportunity to come to our deepest Understanding, to find who we Truly Are, and the True Value of Life. As such, the TaiChi Tao practice is primarily focused on the discipline of Meditation, its Energetic Dynamics and their Universal Functionality within Life and All Creation. And yet, TaiChi Tao is also about becoming comfortable in ordinary life — discovering who we are within the simplest moments of our lives. As such, in addition to intensive Meditation, Contemplation, Devotional, and Life-Simplification practices, TaiChi Tao is also about how we eat our meals, how we treat our children, and how we care for each other. Even more essential, what we call the “Great Aim” or “Great Tao” practice (equivalent to the principle of Bodhisattva in Buddhism) is the highest aspiration of the TaiChi Tao practitioner, for its explicit purpose is the betterment of ourselves and our world for the sake of All Beings. In this Great Aim, we Work toward Spiritual Realization, Transformation and Liberation for the sake of All Beings, and — wherever possible — to help bring about these conditions within others.
TaiChi Tao is a path deeply rooted within the teachings of a long lineage of Realized masters, most notably the Great Sage Lao Tzu, and furthermore enriched through the Universality in the teachings of other ancient masters such as the Buddha and Jesus of Nazareth — as the Supreme-Boundless Way recognizes Universal Truth over tradition and piety to its founders. Therefore, the TaiChi Tao Practice remains available and accessible to all who seek Truth regardless of gender, race, age, cultural upbringing, social status, sexual orientation, level of education, or any other classification by which humans are thought to be distinct from one another.
In TaiChi Tao, our Awakening to the Great Reality has many names, each pointing beyond names: the Unborn State, the Uncarved Block, Beginner’s Mind, Enlightenment, Liberated Being, Transcendental Mind, etc. Regardless of what we name it, this Awakening to the True Nature is a possibility for each of us that exists before our first thought, as well as being the all-consuming reality of all our thoughts and actions. This True Nature is the deepest aspect of our human condition and is the source of Wisdom and Compassion.
TaiChi Tao is both the Experience of the Great Reality, and a Way toward that Experience. As such, the TaiChi Tao practice is about Realization and its subsequent Transformation. There is great and mysterious power inherent to this Transformation, because as we find ourselves changing, we notice that the world around us also begins to change. This Way of Transformation of self and the world is called the Great Tao or Great Aim — it is the Bodhisattva Way; it is the ushering of the Kingdom of Heaven within us and among us. This is the Way of Reconciliation wherein our Hearts and Minds and the very earth itself are discovered to be holy, where the divisions of self and other become less distinct, and our every act becomes sacred. This Awakening to the profound interweaving of All Beings and Transformation into the True Nature of the Higher Self is nothing less than our birthright as human beings.
Our Dharma (Spiritual Work)
Dharma is an ancient Sanskrit word used predominately in Buddhism and Hinduism, however, more recently employed in the TaiChi Tao practice for its multi-cultural comprehensibility (including within the modern Western World) in terms of basic definition. Dharma, most concisely, means Spiritual Work or persistent and attentive Spiritual Practice. However, Dharma, in the most complete understanding of its meaning pertains to the principles that order and govern the Universe as well as individual conduct in following these principles. Dharma is not only our foremost duty as human beings, but also the Essential Function of our True Nature. It is the body of the TaiChi Tao Teachings.
TaiChi Tao is not a theology or set of beliefs. The practice of TaiChi Tao invites us to come into a deeper relationship with the present moment, and to learn how to fully participate in Life at each moment. We practice together and with the Guidance of a Teacher, not just to receive the Great Esoteric Knowledge, but also to uncover the Wisdom, Compassion, Aliveness, and Completeness that is already present within each one of us as a means of Being. This is our Dharma.
