Taoism/Huang Di Treatise on the Power of Calm, Love, and Achieving Immortality
Treatise on the Power of Calm, Love, and Achieving Immortality
Written by Anna Zubkova
Listen to the Divine Silence — and My words of Great Calm and Great Love will come!
I'll talk about Tao — how it can be expressed in words.
Not everyone is ready to hear the advices of God. Not everyone is ready to change one’s life — according to My words of Truth. But that one, who follows it, receives great benefits on the Path to Tao!
* * *
Look: a human body is on the surface of the Earth. It is negligible — in comparison with the size of the planet! But, if you look from Tao, the Earth itself is only a tiny speck in the vast space...
Little mass of consciousness, commonly called a soul, connects to the body — and takes the opportunity to grow and develop.
Human soul has the ability to cultivate different abilities and qualities.
In particular, a person can aspire to the attainment of Perfection — such as that of the Immortal Divine Te. But for this, it is necessary, in particular, to grow to the size of the planet and even more.
The soul which is initially a little spark of consciousness — can become the Flame of Divine Love and the Ocean of Clear Calm, the Center of Wisdom accumulated in the universe, and the Tool of Power of the Eternal Tao. This is the achievement of the Divine Immortality!
But there are Those Who do Immortalize Their bodies. They can live in such immortal bodies as much as is needed. And the body of such Person does not need to die. Such Person will not have to be born on the Earth again.
This Person will always be able to come — in the body or without it — to help those who seek the Path to Oneness with Tao.
* * *
Merged with the Ocean of the Subtlest — becomes Invincible! That Person obtains the Power of Calm of Tao and can also be the Power of Creative Fire.
The Power belongs to Everyone in the Ocean of United Consciousnesses, in the United We, Which is the Primordial Essence of all that exists.
Divine Fire, no matter how great is His Strength, is only Part of the Universal Power.
The Power of Tao cannot be embraced by the ordinary human understanding. Only Those, Who have cognized the Oneness with Tao, find the fullness of knowledge of Him!

Human beings are able to transform oneself-soul consciously. This distinguishes the incarnations into human bodies — from the lives of souls of plants and animals which grow and evolve unconsciously; they are only subject to the circumstances of their lives.
Tao has bestowed people with great opportunities for development.
Man can grow as the soul and fill oneself with the understanding about what is happening with him or her and around.
Man can see in oneself blemish properties: such as excessive desires, manifestations of fear or anger, violence or lack of will — which fail his or her life on the Path to Tao.
Man may, in particular, remove from oneself mental fuss and self-centeredness. This can be mastered by learning to live in the spiritual heart.
Great Te watch over and assist those people who follow the Path to Tao, even if they are still only at the very beginning of the Path.
And then — no longer fears and doubts exist, rather there is the joy of connection with the Will of Tao and Te! Such life is simple and full of joy!

But another now is dominating in people’s lives on the Earth... Although… people think that they are far advanced in their evolution...
They have learned to cultivate the land — but have forgotten how to love the Earth!
They have learned to extract metals and melt them into instruments of labor and war — but have forgotten how to understand why the labor is needed and what are the consequences of wars!
During the bustle of everyday life of people — they forget why they live on the Earth!
* * *
One who is able to listen — acquires the respect of others.
One who is able to understand others — accumulates wisdom.
One who knows the nature of wind movements — can predict the weather and steer sails.
One who knows the nature of the development of plants — can grow a large crop.
One who knows the body’s structure, energy channels in it and also seeing the causes of disease in a body and in a soul — can be a good doctor.
One who knows Love and Peace of Tao — knows the most important in life!
One who knows the Truth and is able to talk about it at the right time and with the help of wise words — gets the right to relay to people the wishes of Te. Te replenish their wisdom from the Source of Perfect Knowledge.
* * *
Everyone already belongs to the Will and Power of the Ocean of Tao, because nothing exists outside His Authority.
Everything in the evolution of souls on the Earth goes on in accordance with the Will of Tao and actions of Te.
Personal will can coincide or be opposite to the Will of Tao. But every madman who tries to resist Tao, becomes an accessory of destructive forces, without which, however, there is no life in the material world. And the fate of such men is unenviable!
* * *
Great ability to understand the Will of Tao and instructions of Te comes from the small and simple. Taking into their lives the knowledge of Tao, people can namely learn in the school of life, not to "go with the flow" guided by only their instincts, desires, and emotions.
Being still not able to hear the words of guidance from Te, people can see the Divine hints — that happens with each in life.
Studied laws of non-harming and respect for harmony, one can strive to follow them. Then soon each of one’s mistakes becomes obvious for this person — because it will fill the soul with sadness and remorse.
Also each step in the right direction will be noticeable as well — because every correct action will be rewarded with joy and bliss given by Te.
Soon such zealot learns to hear the words of Te, which will fill one’s understanding of how to live.
What do you need to make it happen? Immerse your mind into the silence of the spiritual heart!
It is in the spiritual heart, filled with love, where a meeting with God happens! Thus, the way from the world of people reveals — into the world of Divine Te.
And then Those Great Te will help to bestow the Unity with Tao to the aspirant who strives with love into Him!

People are looking for happiness in their lives.
One loves rice — and feels happiness when eating rice.
One likes nice clothes — and is happy when wearing it.
One likes to travel — and finds happiness from the beauty of new places which he or her are exploring.
But such happiness is small and fleeting. The pleasure of nice food and fun company quickly ends, clothes soon wear out, the same place becomes boring, the aimless way bores too... And this person wants more new pleasures!
But the sublime and tender love gives the important bliss and happiness in the evolution of the soul.
The ability to merge souls is generated by mutual love.
The nature of love includes the giving and shining like the sun. Anyone who has learned to love is happy by giving love!
So, gradually, souls learn to fill with happiness and lavish care — others! The desire to benefit not oneself but others, also the ability to be happy because of the happiness of others — this is the first step towards the attainment of the Great Love-Care, which is the main characteristic of Te.
Love for God never is unrequited! Therefore, the greatest happiness is acquired by the soul in Mergence with the Divine Love.
This is the Path that leads to the Union with Tao!
This is the possibility to enter the Great Happiness of the Divine Life!

Many people throughout the ages have dreamed of bodily immortality.
Why does one want this so primitive “immortality”: take the pill — and can live in this body forever? One wishes this due to ignorance of the world where souls live without bodies! Also — because of the fear of death, disembodiment, due to affection for earthly possessions and pleasures! That’s why so many people wanted and continue to want the infinite extension of the life of their bodies!
But souls — do not die! And life after death — continues!
And — then — every soul takes on a new body. Then — those bodies die too... But the soul — still lives on!
All this — is the process of development and growth of souls, which occurs here, in the material world, according to the Will of Tao and under the care of Te.
In search of immortality of their bodies, people have discovered much! They invented postures and movements for bodies to strengthen health, also studied the properties of plants and minerals...
But there were seekers who have cognized the True Immortality of souls, because they, using the help of Te, went in their quests into the Depths. There they were searching the other worlds — in addition to the world of dense matter. They have cognized the “ladder of a plurality of steps” leading to the world of Subtlety. There — they gained immortality in Mergence with the Eternal Tao!
* * *
One can accept the Will of Tao — as one’s own destiny and choice.
Then such a soul gets the opportunity to learn to live in the United We.
Gradually is acquired the Mergence with Tao and the ability to come from Him into the Creation — as Te.
Those for Whom it has become a reality, have nothing to lose — when disembodied. They only get freedom from the material world.
Skills of Those, Who have gained the Oneness with Tao, which were developed during multiple embodiments, may be included in the Work for Tao — also in Their unembodied state.

Tao lives in Great Calm.
Therefore, the ability to be in peace is helpful for a soul.
Movement is naturally inherent to incarnate life. Actions of both minds and bodies — serve the evolution of souls.
But vanity, depriving the calm during times of action, prevents the growth of awareness.
The vanity is usually the result of uncontrollability of mind that cannot be in peace and therefore forces the body to take actions — including those needless, pointless.
One, who has mastered calm of mind and silence in depth of developed spiritual heart, studies the rules of harmonious life. Such one can separate important — from insignificant, required — from devoided of meaning.
* * *
Many people dream about possessing Might — as the Immortal Te possess. They think that it is very desirable for themselves to have the Power of the Greats and the ability to perform wonders.
But one, who has not yet got rid of vices, should not look for power!
Dirty mind — because of low-lying thoughts, desires, and selfish thinking — also the brutal properties of the soul and the gross inclination to lose subtlety, falling into negative emotional states — such qualities represent danger for their owner.
It's hard sometimes for one, who revels in power and strength, to consider one’s own vices! The evil that one does seems to such one the impunity!
Only a great and wise love gives to one the right to have the Divine Power!
Therefore only that one, who is finding blamelessness and absolute purity of the soul (purity — in the understanding of Tao and Te), — can cognize the Greatness of the Divine Power.
* * *
One should leave one’s worldly desires and affections, become cleansed from blemishes, find heart love and wisdom — and then the whole Infinity of Tao can be opened before this seeker!
In the Ocean of Tao — Ocean of Equality in Their Divine Oneness — human individuality disappears. And from this time the new Divine I gets the right to use the Universal Power.
Only that one who has already no personal desires — including the attainment of the ability to make miracles — receives the right to operate the Divine Power.
The manifestation by Avatars of miracles for the crowd — this is only a “business card” of God, which allows to remind people of the Divine Omnipotence.
* * *
Hard is life for those who revere small and insignificant as self-existent, and they do not know about Tao, the Great Wisdom, Love and Power Which is the Original Cause and Purpose for the existence of all!
Bright and beautiful the Path to Tao!
And happy is that one who consciously goes this Path!
