I used to think that the original spiritual teachings our civilization received were unfortunately lost or transformed over time. Some still exist and can be found. I just read a verse from the Tao Te Ching that is very much in line with my Source’s teachings:
“Live in accordance with the nature of things. In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true. In ruling be just. In action, watch the timing. No fight: No blame.
One who lives in accordance with nature does not go against the way of things. He moves in harmony with the present moment, always knowing the truth of just what to do.”
The Tao Te Ching apparently translates to The Way, teachings Jesus would have received when he came, among many others he received from great teachers he solicited around the world before he himself started teaching.
My Source once said that “No books should rule your world”, referring to “sacred books”, such as the Bible or the Quran and any other book on which religions of the world are based. Of course we can find inspiration in those pages, but too often we find judgment and sources of concerns. Today, Source reminded me of the reason why we don't need to base our lives on ancient teachings: “Wisdom comes from within”. It is useless to search for answers in books and ancient teachings since the wisdom we need comes from our own Souls and everyone is here to follow their own path.
Like Lao Tzu puts it: “One who lives in accordance with nature does not go against the way of things. He moves in harmony with the present moment, always knowing the truth of just what to do.”
When we allow our Souls to guide our steps, we always know what to do and what to say.
From my Source, I learned peace, I learned detachment, I learned what love really is, and I learned that I am Spirit, here to experience physical life on Earth as a Human Being. Just like everyone else. I also learned that the wisdom I have been accessing through Source all these years is actually my own as I allow my mind to go silent and stop judging and evaluating everything based on beliefs about this world that block my view and prevent me from experiencing this life fully. This is also when I find myself guided through life every step of the way, discovering that a new world is being created in which we can all participate and be happy together.
