THE Tao is the hidden Reservoir of all things.
A treasure to the honest, it is a safeguard to
 the erring.
A good word will find its own market.
A good deed may be used as a gift to another.
That a man is straying from the right path
Is no reason that he should be cast away.
Hence, at the Enthronement of an Emperor,
Or at the Installation of the Three Ministers,
Let others offer their discs of jade, following it up
 with teams of horses;
It is better for you to offer the Tao without moving
 your feet!
Why did the ancients prize the Tao?
Is it not because by virtue of it he who seeks finds,
And the guilty are forgiven?
That is why it is such a treasure to the world.
Translated by John C. H. Wu

A guard (ward off)
Of evil
Allow my sanctuary (studio)
To not be invaded
By thieves of
Negative thoughts
Chamber
Is my body
An environment
Practice area

Ward off
In my heart
Eventually it
Will reach
Far and wide
The practice/class area
Is where I can
Open my heart
Without being injured  
Hence learn
About myself
Where my heart
Is at this time
In my life
The highest level
Of ward off
Is Master
Providing
His students
With his own
Ward off
To project
Students from foes
When I no longer
Need the Masters
I have reached

How do I get
To someone’s
Emotions
By first clearing
My own
So my true feeling

Stealthy source
Of all applications
If someone
Is not aware
Of the secret
Don’t discard him
But learn from him
As what not
To do
Tai Chi Chuan
Is being able
To make a weapon
Into a tool
Instead of giving
My opinion
Just be still
And offer Tao
True giving
A deed
To people
In need
A bad word
Will find
Its own market
Wantonly
Masters
Don’t just give me
A gift
They gave me
A treasure

Is using the Tao
These new ideas/feelings
During each practice
Have recruited me
Into the Tao

Should be cast away
Why?
Because they were called
To the class
Only the Masters
Can decide on whom
Stays
Who goes
It is better
To teach
Then journey away
Chinese treasure!
Tai Chi Chuan
Is a treasure
Located in China
Must connect to China
Via the Masters
A good gesture
Will find its own
Application
I know not
Without Slow Set
                                                                                                                             If a student
Is straying
Away from the school
They should be able
To return
Anytime
Treat everyone
The same
The worthy
Will reveal
True feelings  
Don’t order students
What they should do
Lead by example
Straying student
No reason
They be exiled
Pay less attention
But stay connected
Open
To the Tao!

Into push hands
Means our heart
Is open
Do not fear
Just follow with
Ward off
A grin
Heart = Tao!

Source
Of all gestures

To long life
A secret
Is the Jing

A bow and bow
Coil spring
Has hidden Jing
It is the secret
To Tai Chi Chuan
Listen
To nature
The good
And the bad
Weigh it
With a fulcrum
Good intent
Is like water
It can enter
Anywhere

To merge spirit/gravity
In body

A treasure
From China
To the world
The worthy
Slow Set
The source
Of all movement
Master caring
For me
As I am caring
For him
Is the sacrum
The dam
To the hidden reservoir
Must Kow Tow
To the Tao
Treasure
Is the connection!
Only
Those worthy
Will get it
Once connection
Becomes a conduit
The art is revealed
Give
The Masters
My time
By practicing
A good gesture
Will find
Its application
Slow Set
Is the Chinese treasure
The waist
Is the hidden gate
Let Tao
Take over
The source
of solution

Sense the Tao
In others
Who others
Really are
Takes a Master
The Tao
Is who
We really are
Before outside
Influences

New worthy
Students
The hidden reservoir
Have I touch
Upon it
During Slow Set
Practice
Those worthy
Will attend
My classes
Jing/Chi
Is hidden
In the meridians
And is revealed
Via the
Bow to bOw
Think
The person
Going away
Body will follow
The mind
Healing starts
With a friend
Once the Master sees
That I am not abusing
The power
They will give
Me more
Slow set
Is the fulcrum
Of all effects
Tai Chi Chuan
Is the key
Good men understand
The Tao
Bad men don’t realize
But the Tao still
Provides for the unscrupulous
The other side
Of the Taoist coin
Master controls
All worthy students
Not just those
Who excel
Tai Chi Chuan
Is good
For everyone
It helps
Make them reclaim
Their youth
Good is good
Bad is also good
If corrected
In the mind
A fly lands
On my shirt
Near my chest
I looked at it
Suddenly realize
That the fly
And I
Is part of the Tao
Caught it
With my left hand
Then let it go
Cannot build
A house
On a poor foundation
If I do
I must keep
Shoring it up  
What’s the sense
Of Masters
Discarding a student  
The unworthy student
Usually discard
The Master
The ultimate
Is to Kow Tow
To spirit/gravity
While watching
Master demonstrate
I saw the hidden treasure
In their performance
I must find it
Feel it
Eventually have it
All the time
Master
Looks at all of us
As doing good
Tai Chi Chuan
He corrects
The bad posture
In his mind
As we perform
Slow set
Is the source
Of the 10,000 things
Learn the slow set
Advancing
I will apprehend
Retreating
I shall escape
The reason
There are some
Poor students
They are only seeking
A refuge
Tao in mind
Seek
I will find
Slow set in mind
Seek
I will understand
Serious is one
Who uses
The slow set
To find the answers
Tai Chi Chuan
Is the pivot
The fulcrum
The hinge
The scale
The measure
Why did
The Masters
Seek Tai Chi Chuan
They are being directed
By their Masters
All have
A pivot point
In everything they do
To stay balanced
On the point
Is the difficult
But eventually
Can just think it
Masters
Are forgiving
Because they probably
Did error themselves
In the past  
Perhaps the act
That I feel
Guilty about
Was the way
It had to be done
Investing in loss
The formula is
“Ching” (idea)
“Chi” (act)
“Shen” (spirit)
Tai Chi Chuan
I can spurt
From my shortcomings
The way
Is the fulcrum
Must always be
Seeking balance
The fulcrum
Can be placed
Anywhere
In the body
Find the Tao
(Tai Chi Chuan)
In self-first
Then in others
Find the new feeling
In self-first
Then do it
Others will do it
If they are listening
Feel the Tao
Within first
Before giving it
To others
First self
Then others
Tao is a gift
From the Masters
Once I truly
Get the Tai Chi Chuan
How can anything
Offended me
Practicing
the Tao (way)
Tai Chi Chuan
Feel love
For sinners
Hear them
Their intent
If they have bad intent
It becomes like a wall
Cannot move it
Move
Around it
The Way
Is the pivot
Of all things
The waist/wrist
Are the pivots
Of the body
Listen with them
This is done
By listening
With a sensitive heart
Not fancy words
Or actions
Just the Tao expressed
Via slow set
Tai Chi Chuan is
The means
By which I can reach
The Tao
Merge with it
Hence offer it
Tai Chi Chuan
Is the combination
Of spirit/man/gravity
Are always here
Only our attention
Varies
The waist open
Is the hidden source
Of the Tao
The fulcrum
Between spirit /gravity
Use the fulcrum
When silently helping
Tao is hidden
Form the unworthy
Tai Chi Chuan
Is a Chinese treasure
Within
It is available
To the worthy
But some
Do not see it
Because they have
Private ends
To meet
Tao
Is the connection
Heaven/Masters/spirit
And
Earth/China/gravity
Tap into the Tao
Via Tai Chi Chuan
Blog will find
Worthy readers
Tai Chi Chuan
Is being
Grounded
One with the earth
Via KD#1
WU; It is better for you
To offer the Tao without
Moving your feet
That is just think it
If student is worthy
They will hear it
Tai Chi Chuan
Is hidden from
The unworthy
Masters guide
The earnest
Only the worthy
Know
If they are worthy
Tao = heart
Heartfelt gesture
That is
Masters’ class
Where there is
A hidden
Treasure
The heart
Give
The Masters
Energy
Not entertainment
Found the hidden
It is the connection
To Masters/China
Spirit/gravity
Tao = Chi
Worthy
Need not
Worry
Only the worthy
Can just think it
Finding
Infinity
Is immortality
Being worthy
Is the key
To Tai Chi Chuan
If a student strays
From class/practice
It is no reason
To neglect them
Perhaps it is a test
Of me and them
By the Masters
Tai Chi Chuan
Is hidden
In the hollow
Forgiveness
Is forgetfulness
Embody
The lineage
Worthy
Will heed
Tai Chi Chuan
Is not hidden
Seek it
It will find
The worthy
A good application
Has an aligned
With gravity
Spirited source
My depot/gallery/studio
Tao = heart

Can worry/wander
Offer lessons
Of the lineage
To all
Wise will heed

My Blog/book
Wrong

A test by
The Masters

Honorariums
Endless
Epiphanies
