The Art of Tao Time
The most fundamental application of Tao Time Zen Taoism is allow yourself to be, so that your life may become a time of blossoming.
Through the implement I Ching, Tao Time's gateless gateways of Three Currents, Twelve Branches and the Fate Sequence navigate the chaos, suffering and absurdity of the occurring world. Being in a Tao Time process one comes to recognize and engage the courage to reach for what the Clear Reality School describes as being an ideal person.
The Process of Each Tao Time Way Is
A different sort of guide to time management, one that involves a complete change in thinking about time. Based on the ancient ideas from the Chinese philosophy of Lao-Tzu, it maps out a three-part program to achieve this end; simplification. relaxation, trust in instinct, and awareness of natural rhythms and harmony with the environment.1. Be in the time you are in,
2. Be in the flow of your life activity; intention, habits and happenstance.
3. Be in clarity and insight to see, hear and feel the ebbs, flows, stillness of your waves in the currents of present and coming time.
Tao Time's Zen Taoism is a mixture of the pragmatic and ideological, of the straight-forward and the mystical, of the physical and the psychological, the prosaic and the poetic.
The Zen Shojo
There are five varieties of Zen from ordinary (Bompu), the outside way (Gedo), small vehicle (Shojo), great vehicle (Daijo) and highest vehicle (Saijojo). Each is a specific practice to attain certain and specific natures of being.
The Shojo is designed to take one to a different state of mindfulness and manifest a corresponding reality. This small vehicle is so named because it is designed to accommodate only one's self. It is an expedient Zen focused on the early Hinayana teachings of Buddha; self liberation, to be free of the suffering, chaos and absurdity of the ordinary world.
Through the twelve branches I Ching one moves through human situations, the nature of existence in time and place and the structure of individuality towards living an engaged creative life. Discipline becomes working at something until you can play at it.
A totally experiential process, the Transformative Tao sojourn landscape is one's life activities, including intentional, habitual and happenstance. Everything is material, those you encounter deliver messages, things are given and taken away, stuff happens.
A well designed, diligently applied Transformative Tao shojo navigates the occurring world. One designs their vehicle in the Tao Time seminar experience and codifies the inquiry at the pre-new moon session. The engine is the nuclear hexagram of a casting result of an inquiry of the oracle. Over 72 days through two and a half lunar cycles the vehicle evolves twelve times returning to itself on the twelfth branch.
The changes in reality are measured in means and matters of one's dharma or occurring world. Whatever one is focused on; personal development, enterprise activity, spiritual deepening, or circumstance transformations, to name a few examples, benefits in the Tao Time Transformative Tao process by way of a Zen Shojo.
One's kufu; the realization of individual creative potential - the one technique which still remains when all techniques are learned is available through the Tao Time processes.
Zen Taoism is informal. Ritual when useful, Pragmatic action orientation, like a sleeping tiger, immediately alert.
Folded into the Tao Time is the precept be creative and receptive, transcending subject/object dichotomy.
Transcendence is to overcome or rise above, dichotomy is to separate or divide into two, subject is frequently represented by 'I', object is frequently accomplished by subject, or the person or thing to whom it is done.
Tao Time, through Zen Shojo disciplines, provides one the means and matters to overcome (transcend) that which divides or separates (dichotomy) us (subject) from what we do, or the person or thing (object) to which we are trying to relate. It provides a landscape where the ghost between the teeth is released and an infinite way of doing things is available,
To be in a Tao Time Zen Taoism way is the Be of Be, Do, Have where Begetting, Becoming, Begoning is the landscape.
