TAO never makes any ado,
And yet it does everything.
If a ruler can cling to it,
All things will grow of themselves.
When they have grown and tend to make a stir,
It is time to keep them in their place by the aid of the
 nameless Primal Simplicity,
Which alone can curb the desires of men.
When the desires of men are curbed, there will be peace,
And the world will settle down of its own accord.
As to foreknowledge, it is only the flower of Tao,
And the beginning of folly.
Therefore, the full-grown man sets his heart upon
 the substance rather than the husk;
Upon the fruit rather than the flower.
Truly, he prefers what is within to what is without.

Translated by John C. H. Wu

FLOATING


Master’s answer
To self-transformation process
Do more Slow Set
It is the centrifugal weight
That separates
My parts/problems
Slow Set
Is the centrifuges
For self-transformation
Desire
Is to undo
My longings
Slow set
Should end
In harmony
Push hands should
End in armistice
Storms of emotions
End in peace
Don’t try to stop
Thunder/lightning
Once it starts
Rather go inside
Enjoy the show
Same with others
Don’t try
To stop others
From expressing
Themselves
Go inside/enjoy
Like a fulcrum
On a scale
Not wanting or giving
Just there
Oh so important
Those who are
Not connected
Do not see
Masters
Doing nothing
Those connected
See the Masters
Do everything
Be like water
After the splash
Just calm down
Primal simplicity
Is water
When it comes
To a challenge
Be dispassionate
To Hear
What is coming
Calm down
Listen
To the nothing
Empty
Hearing what affects
Peace
If I get an urge
To grow and stir
Return to the basic
Negate desire
Disaffirm intent
During demonstration
Also during art
Perhaps all the time
There is a lack
Of peace
Because of wanting
And intent
To do well
Causes leaning
Forward
During slow set
Do not have intent
The answer
Will come
Intent is a
Misuse of the senses
Especially the 6th sense
Intent = desire = disillusion
Like Gravity
Has intent
To hold
I never
Do anything
Others might enjoy
Tao never speaks
Yet
It says everything
Effects
Of past/present/future
Will rise
Make a commotion
Calm the past
In the present
For the future
Via Slow Set
Stirring!
Go back
To center
Is the secret
To the art
Masters
Are inactive
To those who are
Not connected
Connect
Nothing
Would be undone
Desire will not
Bring it sooner
Be connected
Soon or later
Thru honor/respect
Of the lineage
Show
Disrespect
In any way
I will have
To wait
Longer
If at all
Be prepared
For many tests
Don’t make ado
About not getting it
In partner practice
It will
Be done in time
Having doubt
Do slow set
Having desire
Do slow set
Just go back
To slow set
Thru show set
Sprit/gravity merge
And make man
Like a bellows
Masters
Are thinking solution
Listen to them
Think it
Do not say it
Just like
Masters do
Frugal
Carefully
I never have
A plan for class
I must be at one
With the Masters = Tao
Wait!
Listen!
Negate intent
Negate desire
Abide
By the Masters
All will be fine
Tao = Heart!

Going from
One gesture
To another
Causes friction
Like moving
Two objects
To each other
Same is true
When changing
The mind
From one thought to
Another = Jing
No push hands
Or weapons
Too soon
After transformation

Thru me
Masters
Cannot do anything
Yet they
Leave nothing undone
But they can only
Express them
Thru a student
When I think
I open
To Masters
If ideas
Are separate
In class
Use centrifugal force
To bring them
Together
But independent
Do centrifugal
Slow set
To keep class together
An idea
Is the anchor
Of centrifugal force
Centripetal force…center seeking
Centrifugal force…center fleeing
Outward seeking

Must have control
Over desire
To do something
Other than what I am doing
Once understood
Go to the next level
This is the next gesture
We must all learn
On our own
Learning
What others do
Is a good way
To learn
What not to do

The tendency
To continue
Along a tangent
Thus move away
