1:Jing naturally transforms into Qi,
Qi naturally transforms into Spirit,
and Spirit naturally transforms into pure openness,
uniting with cosmic space.
This is called returning to the root,
returning to origin.
The path of everlasting life
and eternal vision is complete. ~ Master Li, The Book of Balance and Harmony, (13th century, trans. By Thomas Cleary),

*** NEWFULLDB 2.4M ***

1:Look for loyal ministers in homes with filial sons ~ Thomas Cleary
2:The Way returns the carved and the polished to simplicity. ~ Thomas Cleary
3:Ḥaḍrat (“The Presence”) ‘Alī, who lived from 598 to 661 of the common era, ~ Thomas Cleary
4:Not diminishing the Way by the mind,
not trying to help the divine by means of the human. ~ Thomas Cleary
5:The nobility of the ancients was no more than purity and serenity--what need for bushels of emblems? ~ Thomas Cleary
6:The gateway to the Tao is open - anyone can come in. If you know how to change directions, the goal is near at hand. ~ Thomas Cleary
7:Having one's will on the Tao is finding joy in the Tao;
when one delights in the Tao, then one can practice the Tao. ~ Thomas Cleary
8:Artist and scholar, warrior and statesman, husband and father, Ḥaḍrat ‘Alī is a traditional model for chivalry, learning, and devotion. ~ Thomas Cleary
9:Because of barriers of knowledge, barriers of state, and barriers of action, seeing your own buddha nature is like seeing color at night. ~ Thomas Cleary
10:The Buddhas speak the wondrous sound throughout the world; the Teachings spoken over countless ages can all be expounded in a single word. ~ Thomas Cleary
11:The Buddha is like space, with no inherent nature; appearing in the world to benefit the living, his features and refinements are like reflections. ~ Thomas Cleary
12:In general, the practice of the Way involves blocking off errors, stopping them before they happen. It does not value self-approval, it values inability to do wrong. ~ Thomas Cleary
13:The excitable observer will pass judgement first and then make knowledge conform to judgement; the prudent observer will first learn to know and then judge according to knowledge. ~ Thomas Cleary
14:If three people are travelling and one of them is confused, they can still get where they are going. That´s because the confused one is in the minority.
If two of them are confused, they´ll have a hard time and won´t get there, because confusion prevails. ~ Thomas Cleary
15:Jing naturally transforms into Qi,
Qi naturally transforms into Spirit,
and Spirit naturally transforms into pure openness,
uniting with cosmic space.
This is called returning to the root,
returning to origin.
The path of everlasting life
and eternal vision is complete. ~ Master Li, The Book of Balance and Harmony, (13th century, trans. By Thomas Cleary),
16:Spirit and energy should be clear as the night air; In the soundless is the ultimate pleasure all along. Where there's reality in illusion Is illusion in reality, For the while playing with magical birth In the silver bowl. [1786.jpg] -- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary

~ Sun Buer, Spirit and energy should be clear as the night air

17:What has been long neglected cannot be restored immediately. Ills that have been accumulating for a long time cannot be cleared away immediately. One cannot enjoy oneself forever. Human emotions cannot be just right. Calamity cannot be avoided by trying to run away from it. Anyone working as a teacher who has realized these five things can be in the world without misery. letter ~ Thomas Cleary
18:The beginning of the sustenance of life Is all in yin and yang. The limitless can open up The light of the great limit. Diligently polished, the mirror of the mind Is bright as the moon; The universe in a grain May rise, or it may hide. [1786.jpg] -- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary

~ Sun Buer, The beginning of the sustenance of life

19:Emotion in the heart is like poison in a substance, like fire latent in reeds-one ought to be aware of this. Therefore, as superior people do their work, they do not feel exalted when given status, do not feel aggrandized when honored, do not pay attention when treated familiarly, do not become suspicious when treated with aloofness, and cannot be abased. Thus they cannot be moved by emotions. ~ Thomas Cleary
20:Wisdom should control courtesy. Courtesy should control righteousness. Righteousness should control benevolence. Benevolence should control trustworthiness. Trustworthiness should control wisdom. When these five natures produce and control each other thus in a continuous circle, then no element of personality dominates; they all interact, balancing each other, resulting in completeness of the five natures. ~ Thomas Cleary
21:Before our body existed, One energy was already there. Like jade, more lustrous as it's polished, Like gold, brighter as it's refined. Sweep clear the ocean of birth and death, Stay firm by the door of total mastery. A particle at the point of open awareness, The gentle firing is warm. [1786.jpg] -- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary

~ Sun Buer, Gathering the Mind

22:When flowing water...meets with obstacles on its path, a blockage in its journey, it pauses. It increases in volume and strength, filling up in front of the obstacle and eventually spilling past it...

Do not turn and run, for there is nowhere worthwhile for you to go. Do not attempt to push ahead into the danger... emulate the example of the water: Pause and build up your strength until the obstacle no longer represents a blockage. ~ Thomas Cleary
23:The relic from before birth Enters one's heart one day. Be as careful as if you were holding a full vessel, Be as gentle as if you were caressing an infant. The gate of earth should be shut tight, The portals of heaven should be first opened. Wash the yellow sprouts clean, And atop the mountain is thunder shaking the earth. [1786.jpg] -- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary

~ Sun Buer, Refining the Spirit

24:Everyone holds a luminous jewel, all embrace a precious gem; if you do not turn your attention around and look within, you will wander from home with a hidden treasure. Have you not heard it said, “In the ear it is like the great and small sounds in an empty valley, none not complete; in the eye it is like myriad images under a thousand suns, none able to avoid casting shadows”? If you seek it outside of sense experience, you will hinder the living meaning of Zen. ~ Thomas Cleary
25:What worlds are there herein? I’ll tell you. In these seas of fragrant waters, numerous as atoms in unspeakably many buddha-fields, rest an equal number of world systems. Each world system also contains an equal number of worlds. Those world systems in the ocean of worlds have various resting places, various shapes and forms, various substances and essences, various locations, various entryways, various adornments, various boundaries, various alignments, various similarities, and various powers of maintenance. ~ Thomas Cleary
26:Since the refinement of the three treasures requires the removal of emotions, it is necessary to govern the mind. What is governing the mind? The mind is originally pure, the mind is originally calm; openness and freedom are both basic qualities of mind, this means we should keep it as it is in its original fundamental state, clear as a mountain stream, pure, fresh, unpolluted, silent as an immense canyon, free from clamor, vast as the universe, immeasurable in extent, open as a great desert, its bounds unknown. ~ Thomas Cleary
27:Those with enlightened virtue please the people, those without enlightened virtue please themselves. Those who please the people grow, those who please themselves perish. Nowadays many of those who are called leaders deal with the people on the basis of likes and dislikes. When we look for those who know what is bad about what they like and know what is good about what they dislike, we find that they are rare. Therefore it is said, “Those who share the same grief and happiness as the people, the same good and bad, are the just.” Who would not take refuge where there is justice? Laike ~ Thomas Cleary
28:The Tao is uncontrived, yet there is nothing it does not do. It can be witnessed by the mind, not known by knowledge. What is "knowing"? What is "witness"? Knowledge dismisses knowledge. Witness only responds. Response comes from nowhere. Mind then penetrates. Penetrate the One, and all tasks are done. The One is the root. The task is the door. When the task returns to One, the One is ever present. The presence should not be reified; provisionally we speak of keeping it. Keep open selflessness and naturally be eternal. [1786.jpg] -- from Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, Edited by Thomas Cleary

~ Sun Buer, Precious Treatise on Preservation of Unity on the Great Way

29:Be aware of yourself and know yourself. No matter how much you have learned and how much you know, if you don’t know yourself you don’t know anything. Indeed, if you don’t know yourself you cannot know anything else. People who don’t know themselves criticize others from the point of view of their own ignorant selves. They consider whatever agrees with them to be good, and hate whatever doesn’t go their way. They become irritated about everything, causing themselves to suffer by themselves, bothering themselves solely because of their own prejudices. If you know that not everyone will be agreeable to you, know that you won’t be agreeable to everyone either. Those who have no prejudices in themselves do not reject people, and therefore people do not reject them. ~ Thomas Cleary
