Everything has its opposite - left and right, happy and sad, love and hate, inside and outside...

Every particle (the matter that the universe is made of) has its antiparticle (the antimatter that the universe is also made of).

Physicists at Princeton University have observed a particle that behaves both like matter and antimatter.

In other words, the scientists have observed a particle that is its own antiparticle.

Particle observed, both matter & antimatter

Matter is a mirror image of antimatter.

There is a belief that it is our minds that create matter.

'0' can become something.

How might things come into existence?

A mathematical equation shows us how it may work.

0 = +X -X

+X is matter (particles)

-X is anti-matter (anti-particles)


Think of the TAOIST idea of YIN and YANG.

Let us say that YIN represents mainly minus numbers and YANG represents mainly the plus numbers.

The Buddhists say that you cannot have Nirvana without Samsara.

A good game of golf involves a LITTLE bit of Nirvana and a LITTLE bit of Samsara?

Let's look at Taoism.

1. The Force

Consider Luke Skywalker and how Obi-wan Kenobi taught him about "the Force".

Luke had to avoid being distracted by things like fear and anger.

He had to learn about spontaneity.

On one occasion, Luke was trying, without success, to avoid laser blasts from a 'remote'.

When Obi-wan Kenobi placed a helmet on Luke's head so he couldn't be distracted, he easily deflected the remote's laser blasts.

The idea is that when you are aware of the 'Tao' and feel 'the force', you can flow with it, and the right action appears for itself, spontaneously.

The economy does not work when things are out of balance.

2. What are the essentials of Taoism?

(http://www.godquest.org/taoism.htm / Http://www.crystalinks.com/taoism.html)

Some Taoists and Christians and others believe that bliss can be achieved when:

1. One is compassionate

2. One is moderate (Avoid large numbers?)

3. One is humble (Avoid large numbers?)

4. Everything is in balance (+ X - X rather than +X - 1000X?)

5. One is in tune with the Holy Spirit or the Tao or whatever one wants to call it. One goes with the flow.

6. One avoids the use of force; one avoids pitting one's will against the universe.


The Christians talk about God’s spirit.

God nourishes us.

The Taoists talk about the Tao being a force that flows through everything. 

The Tao nourishes us.


3. The Tao and Yin and Yang:

When the Tao is in balance one can be happy. (+ X - X rather than +X - 1000X?)

There is Yin and there is Yang (just as there is black and white, up and down, male and female).

'When they are equally present, all is calm. 

'When one is outweighed by the other, there is confusion and disarray.

'The Tao surrounds everyone and one must listen to find enlightenment.'

True Taoism does not get bogged down with theology. "The Tao that can be named is not the true Tao."

Taoists love their enemies. "I am good to the man who is good to me, likewise, I am also good to the bad man."

The USA's Phoenix programme (left) involved torturing and killing civilians. The USA's ISIS force is also going to extremes. www.thesleuthjournal.com

4. Wu wei is action through inaction; ‘a practice of minimal action, particularly minimal violent action’. 

Don’t overdo the antibiotics or the pesticides. 

Don’t bomb your enemies.

Consider the lilies.

Don't force yourself or others to be compassionate. Be spontaneous.

Genuine love is spontaneous love.

"The Master does not see evil as a force to resist, but simply as an opaqueness, a state of self-absorption that is in disharmony with the universal process, so that, as with a dirty window, the light can't shine through. 

"This freedom from moral categories allows him his great compassion for the wicked and the selfish" - Stephen Mitchell

"The Tao regulates natural processes and nourishes balance in the Universe. 

"It embodies the harmony of opposites (i.e. there would be no love without hate, no light without dark, no male without female.)"

5. Henry C K Liu wrote in the Asia Times about Taoism.

(http://www.atimes.com/atimes/China/EH01Ad01.html ).

Where does evil come from?

There can be no ‘good’ without ‘evil’.

"Controlled quantities of the bad can be good. 

"Excessive amounts of the good can be bad. 

"Poison kills. But when handled properly, it can cure diseases. 

"Without poison, there can be no medicine.

"To employ poison to attack poison is a Taoist principle."

The secret is to avoid extremes.

Americans carrying out torture in Vietnam.

How should we act?

We should avoid producing unintended consequences.

"Not taking premature or unnecessary actions keeps all of one's options open, so that the most appropriate action remains available. 

"Actions always elicit reactions. 

"Each action taken provokes reactions from all quarters that, taken together, are always more powerful than the precipitous action itself. It is the ultimate definition of the inescapable law of unintended consequences."

"To follow the dao (path) of life is to go with the natural flow of life and to avoid going against it.

"The ethical theories of Taoism lean toward passive resistance, believing that evil, by definition, will ultimately destroy even itself without undue interference.

"Yet it would be a mistake to regard Taoism as fatalistic and pessimistic, instead of the ultimate sophistication in optimism that it is.

"Only by not applying effort can one achieve that state in which nothing is not attainable effortlessly.

"A little ambition is a good thing. Total elimination, even of undesirables, is an extreme solution, and it is therefore self-defeating.

"Life is a prison from which one can escape only if one does not try to escape. It is the desire to escape that makes a place a prison, and the desire to return that makes it a home. Home is not where one is, it is where one wants to return."

6. Taoism and other religions.

The following comes from: http://www.jadedragon.com/archives/tao_heal/teach01.html

From Taoism: happiness comes from helping others; wealth comes from giving to others. 

"Love the world as yourself; then you can care for all things."

From Buddhism: "Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy." 

Buddha: "See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?"

From Islam: "There is a reward for your treatment of every living thing." Muhammad also said: "None of you is a believer until you like for others what you like for yourself."

From Christianity: "Do unto others as you would have them do to you."

  1. Thanks. :)

    Yin & Yang aren't evil & good, as I understand it, it's when they come into conflict that evil occurs...

    Evil is not necessary for happiness to exist. It's not the equal of good, it just says it is...

  2. Hello Aangirfan,
    Yes, there is also a food conspiracy going on for thousands of years. The Illuminati made people believe they need meat, sugar, cooking,...specially through religions.
    When somebody dares to try a few months on a vegan raw diet and experiences so many changes on all levels is when all becomes clear. Food control is human mind control. Interesting to this yin-yang food correspondence is the division into 3 gunas from indian tradition: sattvic, rajasic and tamasic food.
    This makes me wonder what the elite eats.The irony is that you just can become illuminated or enlightened when you eat just the purest way. I always thought the elite eats the best of the best to live hundreds of years but in regards of their symptoms it looks like they eat just tamasic and the extremes from yin and yang.

  3. Great article - thank you!

  4. "Do unto others as you would have them do to you" may seem to be a good maxim, but it is seriously flawed. The "others" might prefer that you do unto them what they would have done unto themselves, not what you would have done unto yourself.
