Meditation, Intention, and Wu Wei - 14oct22

They say, “No Taoist should trifle in talismans, enchantments, or healings.” They say, “No Taoist should practice chaos magick or even exercise intention.” But is that accurate?

Are not the three treasures of the Tao: simplicity, patience, and compassion? And are we not to seek their mastery with intention, meditation, and surrender? Forsaking the concentrations and contrivances of yang, and embracing the awareness and acquiescence of yin, we could make of our body, breath, and mind fertile ground for the development of centered spontaneity that our choices, utterances, and deeds may be lived by the Tao, like a maple leaf dancing in a gale.

In our earnestness, in our fear, and in our hubris we feel that we cannot be used by the Tao to the benefit of others unless we understand the precise means by which it is to be accomplished through us. But where is the fun in that? Where is the adventure? Come, let us allow that the Tao acts in the role of old Ben Kenobi, and we are cast as the farm boy (the nephew of a moisture farmer), that we too could meditate like a Jedi.
