The following is a meditation exercise for reaching inner clarity and the Oneness, as explained in the Taoist text the Hua Hu Ching:

“Thinking and talking about the Integral Way neither are nor the same as practicing it. Who ever became a good rider by talking about horses? If you wish to embody the Tao, stop chattering and start practicing. Relax your body and quiet your senses. Return your mind to its original clarity. Forget about being separated from others and from the Divine Source. As you return to the Oneness, do not think of it or be in awe of it. This is just another way of separating from it. Simply merge into truth, and allow it to surround you.”

~Hua Hu Ching, Chapter forty-nine. Translated by Brian Walker

Note you can try this practice either as a sitting meditation exercise, or while walking and/or doing activities, etc.

  • The following passage from the Hua Hu Ching of Lao Tzu, translated by Hua-Ching Ni also suggests a similar practice:

    “…the mind is just as immeasurable as the vast universe. An integral being settles his mind just as the vast universe settles itself. He unites his mind with the unnameable Subtle Origin of the multi-universe in which there is no past, present or future. This is how an integral being deals with his mind.”
