White Sun - Tao of Heaven

Tao exists before Heaven and Earth. It will still exist after the destruction of everything. Tao is the origin of Heaven, Earth, mankind, substances and matters.

Tao being the essence, is the core of all virtues. God is the spiritual energy of Tao. In terms of the lord of all phenomena in the cosmos, the essence is called God. The truth is the manifestation of Tao and conscience is the manifestation of the true self.

Originally Tao is nameless. Since it is a void, it is everywhere and it is nowhere. The comos is like a giant wheel, days follow months, winter follows summer, birth is followed by growth, old age and death. Human cannot live without Tao. Tao is the True Self of a human. Once the True Self is covered by emotions and desires, one becomes lost and is attracted by illusory images, hence forever trapped in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.

Nowadays, science and technology dominates the society. Mankind becomes corrupted and morality has deteriorated. Catastrophes strike everywhere. The ultimate goal of Tao of Heaven is to turn the world into a Pure Land.

What is the true meaning of Tao?

In the beginning, the comos was a void without any form or substance. However in this state, there existed an indescribable energy. Without beginning or end, it is ever changing and continuously self-rejuvenating. This energy created billions of galaxies, stars and solar systems. It also created billions of life forms on Earth, including humans, animals and plants. Observable forms and substances make up the material world; others that cannot be observed make up the spiritual world. This mystical energy that exists in all shapes and forms fill the universe with vibrant vitality. Hence it is the origin of all lives and the Lord of all beings. We call this energy TAO.

Tao endows Heaven and Earth, the truth and order. Tao not only manifests the state of life, it also unveils the principle, order and characteristic of life. Tao is the centre of all thoughts, feeling and emotion and controls all bodily existence. Everyone has Tao within oneself, yet does not know its existence. Tao is origin of mankind. One who searches and discovers Tao becomes a Saint. One who does not know Tao becomes lost and risks the annihilation of his soul. Thus, one who acts benevolently based on faith will perfect benevolence in his conscience; one who makes judgement based on faith will perfect his wisdom.
