About

He has observed and understands that life is cyclical and sequential; a never ending series of events, phases and episodes that advances and reverses goals and aspirations.

Making use of and learning from experience is a key component of a well lived life. Using what is described as the Transformative Tao path changes the organic, social, cultural, technological and economic push/pulls into a flow that is navigable.

The most fundamental application of Tao Time Zen Taoism is allow your self 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.

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.

The Process of Each Tao Time Way Is

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.

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.

Be like water

The ideal person is like water.

Water is good; it benefits all things and does not compete with them.
It dwells in low places that all disdain
This is why it is so near to Tao.

The ideal person in your dwelling loves the earth.

In your heart, you love what is profound, in your associations, you love humanity, in your words, you love faithfulness. In government, you love order, in handling of affairs, you love competence. In your activities, you love timeliness.

It is because you do not compete that you are above reproach.

Tao Time

The ecstasy of timelessness as Begetting, Becoming, Begoning is embodied in Tao Time.

Formulated 3,500 years ago in 64 interactive social and cultural messages about human and social interactions,

The IChing adapts and flexes shape in processes and procedures to navigate the means and matters that flow.

Through observation, detail and predication the IChing channels timeless energies. Following the forms of evolving and devolving leads to an ideal state of being. This is Tao

Transformative Tao is one of those instruments. The 72 day sojourn between two and a half lunar cycles builds and releases energy creating momentum in realizing the appropriate manifestation of an inquiry made of the oracle.

Transformative Tao is a 14 part seminar on understanding and applying intentionally called actions.

Through a methodological use of the IChing, or the Book of Changes,one can access and apply the wisdom in current times.

Applying the wisdom of the Tao, or the Way, always brings you exactly what you need when you need it to stay successful no matter the circumstances. Everything is useful in the Tao.

The Oracle is the I Ching, a construction of eight trigrams that form a combination of sixty four hexagrams that describes humans social and cultural activities.
