The Poison of NEO-taoism - 7oct21

Lao Tzu’s view of the Beneficial Way

as described in the Tao Te Ching

is beautiful.

It is matriarchal, and flexible,

and vulnerable, and spontaneous.

Twelve centuries later

it was obscured by patriarchy.

Lao Tzu had described

the three treasures of the Tao,

through the lens of Yin;

as simplicity, patience, and compassion

whereas so-called “ancestor” Lu

taught from the Yang perspective,

insisting that the three treasures

were sexual-vitality, respiratory-energy, and intentional-spirit.

It was Lu’s teachings

that would lead to Yang’s

martial arts and internal alchemy.

Just as in “Revenge of the Sith”

we saw democracy die

to the sound of applause,

likewise Lu replaced

the water way of Lao Tzu

with the fire path of patriarchy.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
