The Confusion of Spoken Language Spiritual Being vs Bodily Becoming

Whenever there is a lack of clarity in our language, it furthers the split between mind-body. We start living in concepts instead of living in our body. It can also create confusion about the use of individual will power. This typically occurs with transcendentalist religions and approaches to life that advocate surrender to higher spirit. They tend to ignore the will of the body, and pretend that if we can just stay focused on formless spirit that everything is in reality perfect. They accuse...

Tao Cosmology Unfolding the Original Trinity

Wuji is just the Daoist way of describing the universal womb of the Tao from which everything is born - a kind of Godhead with no God or Goddess sitting inside it. Inside this womb is the pure Mystery of the Unknown. It is the Holy of Holies, in which non-being transmutes itself into Original Spirit-Breath-Substance, the primordial trinity. This is the silent, mysterious act of Original Will which is present in every moment of manifestation. Original trinity in turn initiates the Song of...

Inner Smile is Its Own Reward

Have you ever noticed that you like to be around other people who smile a lot naturally You feel comfortable, you feel accepted, it's just human nature. It's the same thing inside you. We don't realize how many judgments and inner frowns we're projecting all the time onto some part of our body. This creates a split between the body and the psyche, that doesn't actually exist. An effective way to correct this bad habit of judging and hating ourselves is to neutrally smile to them. The smile...

Step a Smile dissolve your entire physical body

Note When first training, step 6a. (yin practice) normally preceeds step 6b. (yang practice). Later, one could choose to do either. It is not necessary to do both each time one practices. But since the insides of things are more unconscious for us than the outsides, it's good to first get a strong foundation in yin inner body practice. Allow yourself to feel your whole body smiling together. You are smiling simultaneously into the intelligences operating all your biological systems the three...

Continue smiling down to the thymus gland at the base of the throat, known to Daoists as the little heart that nourishes the immortal child within. Smile inside it, feel it open like a...

The Smiling Inner Heart of our Energy Body

Sexual Drowning

Thanks to ancient Tao masters passing down their tradition for thousands of years, we now know the secret of the Inner Smile is hidden within our inner heart. The inner heart is not the physical heart, and it is not the emotional or feeling heart. There is a third heart, just as there is a third eye. This inner heart is a portal to direct experience of what is called soul, a concept in the West that has successfully eluded all definition. The ancient enlightened masters gave us a very specific...

Poem Smile by Barbara Hauck Michael Winn in inner smiling state (Photo taken after deep meditation). Michael Winn was born in San Francisco's Presidio in 1951, next to the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. According to Tao master Ni Hua Ching's astrology reading, the Golden Gate, a symbolic bridge between Asia and America, shaped his destiny. Chinese astrology typically looks at earthly feng shui influences as well as planetary forces. Winn graduated from Dartmouth College in 1973 as a Senior...

Q I have struggled with boredom and depression for a long time Do I need to try harder for a breakthrough

Again, don't struggle with the boredom, it will win that game, and drag you down into its pit where it is also trapped. Just relax and alertly smile to it until the next layer opens up. Be patient. The Inner Smile can open all Inner Doors. When it opens up,, you don't feel struggle, you don't feel like life is out to get you or someone else is out to get you and stifle your creativity.

Outer Acceptance vs Inner Acceptance Outer Smile vs Inner Smile

Michael Winn

I don't mean to imply the outer acceptance or outer smile method is not useful. To love others truly you must first accept them for who they are. Otherwise, you are only loving your projection of yourself as savior to them. Outer acceptance certainly can be an extremely beneficial process to most people, and might ultimately lead them to inward acceptance of themselves. We are talking about two doorways here, the inner and the outer doorways of our psyche. Both doors need to eventually be...

Tai Chi Harmony of Cosmic Being

Golden Embryo Taoism

Energetically, the Inner Smile asks us to accept that our personal inner Being is part of the Original Spirit yuan shen of the Tao Dao . According to ancient Chinese thinking, Original Spirit exhaled the Original Breath as the pure, non-polar breath of the Cosmos. This breaths follows the cosmic law of the Tai Chi principle of harmony. Its invisible guidance deep inside our body is why we constantly seek harmony in our everyday life. Think of Tao as the Source of Nature. Tao breathes out its...

Positive Ego Negative Ego Neutral

The Inner Smile is about activating a level of inner self that is deeper than either our outer positive ego or outer negative ego. The Inner Smile begins by systematically having us unconditionally accept everything inside our self. We begin with the surface layers of our solid body, and work our way down into our deep layers of psyche and soul. We smile to the negative, we smile to the positive, and in the space between them we smile into the neutral. The neutral is the key space in the...

Step b Smile dissolve beyond the body

Our strategy is to start with the outer smile. We first project it internally into the body, and thereby encounter the reality that everything inside our body is alive, i.e. it is also our psyche. That the body-spirits can smile back from every part of our physical tissue. This phase of Inner Smile training is a yin practice, we are dissolving inward and remaining very receptive to whatever arises, without projecting or expanding our energy body out. This is smiling movement into the core of...

Q How long do I practice the Inner Smile at any one sitting

We just did a long guided meditation of nearly one hour transcribed in text above . We took a lot of time to open up new pathways of inner communication, with verbal reminders of what we were doing. We were basically re-programming our energy bodies, and that needs to be done slowly and thoroughly. It is hard to meditate while reading, so some people may want to get an audiotape version so they can close their eyes and be guided. available on www.HealingDao.com as code MC1A, or in package with...

What does presence mean in smiling practice

Smiling is really just about presence. I wonder if the root of the word presence comes from pre-sensing. The part of you that knows before your senses have confirmed the knowing. At core smiling is just a spiritual practice about trusting the Life Force, the chi field, which is omni-present. It is much faster than us, so it is already present in any situation, doing its job of maintaining cosmic balance and harmony. By smiling, we are asking the chi field to show us the balance point between...

First Guided Smile Warmup

Small Babies Smiling

Everybody, please just fake a smile right now, put a big outer smile on your face. We are going to take the outer smile and focus it inside us. This morning we did belly laughing. The smile is a totally different energy than the laugh. Smiling doesn't activate your belly, the smile is more coming from your heart and face. Even if you fake an outer smile, turning the corners of your mouth up activates a whole complex of muscles and glands. If it's coming just from your face, there's a feeling of...

This time let's gather some saliva in order to very consciously swallow it down the digestive tract. Saliva is a very precious fluid that can be supercharged with the Inner Smile. It is precious because it is a fluid imbued with the spiritual vibrations of the upper dantian, the doorway to the heavenly chi field. We need to gather a pool of saliva first. Move your tongue around...

Q Whats the difference between Inner Smile as a Water Fire dissolving technique and Tao wateronly dissolving methods

The water-only method can be summarized as ice dissolves to water, water dissolves to gas. This principle is applied to chi flow in the human body and psyche. It's a perfectly legitimate method of dissolving. It works on the principle of expansion and contraction, mostly on progressive letting go of body density and expanding to a vaporous chi state. But the water-only method does not specifically activate the inner Heart Spirit which has a fiery, or at least warm nature and does not directly...

St Francis of Assisi Punishing the Unholy Body

Perhaps the most famous example of this was the Italian monk, St. Francis of Assisi. He was a wonderful, humble soul that inspired many to accept and love others. He claimed to have a special love for the creatures of the natural world. Although he was incredibly kind to others, he was brutally cruel to his own body. He could accept other's bodily needs, but rejected his own. He often referred to his body as Brother jackass, and subjected it to extreme hardship. He subsequently died quite...

Chapter Five Guided Inner Smile Meditation

Whatsunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. Deep meditation allows the heart's inner soul to radiate an inner smile as an expression of self-realization. My kriya yoga teacher was allegedly in nirvakalpa samadhi for 45 years at time this photo was taken. Swami Hariharananda's powerful inner smile gave him the aura of a spiritual Santa Claus. He recently shifted dimensions at age 96.

Receptive Yin Smile Projective Yang Smile

In the Inner Smile process, one first must accept the inner layers of oneself. This is the yin phase of practice, meaning you approach yourself softly, with an open, receptive and nurturing attitude. This phase requires accepting one's major biological structures, one's energy channels, and one's guiding intelligences or body spirits jing shen . Once these begin to integrate, one's inner heart opens, and the yang phase of practice may begin. One smiles out from the space of inner...

The Great Secret of Internal Alchemy

Crying With Smile Pics

The Inner Smile is central to embracing the hidden third force in Nature, our Original Breath. Original Breath mediates between Original Spirit and Original Substance, which we experience as human spirit and human body. Original Breath also mediates between all our dualities, such as good and evil. It is able to mediate them as this subtle, self-arising neutral breath finds itself converted into all polarities by humans exercising their free will. Of course every culture has its esoteric...

Inner Smile Root of the Root

The Tao science of chi cultivation is so huge. It is easy to get lost in it. Taoists spent thousands of years developing so many different way to refine human chi using chi kung and meditation. They took the science of healing and medicine to new depth, had hundreds of martial arts systems, found the best way to build houses with good feng shui, and figured out how to bury the dead so the ancestral chi is most beneficial. They developed high systems of Tao philosophy, ethics, sexology,...

Does Lao Tzus Tao Te Ching mention the Inner Smile

As far as I know, the Inner Smile is not mentioned by name in Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching Daodejing . But if you have training in Daoist meditation, it is easy to understand the parables of Lao Tzu as practical teachings rather than as mystical poetry or intellectual philosophy. The scholar Harold Roth has shown conclusively in his book Original Tao that Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching was a meditation manual. It had probably been around for hundreds of years already, as the collected wisdom from that...

Smiling Chi Flow as the Silent Language of Nature

With Tao you don't have a dogma or a deity to believe in, only a cosmology-as-collective-process to be experienced in each unique moment IN THE BODY. But they can talk about it with spoken language, as well as talk to it with non-verbal energetic language. There is a continuous line of Tao practitioners who have developed and refined silent alchemical practices. The energetic patterns in those practices constitute a deep language in itself. This is the hidden...

Chi Dissolving Process Purifies Mind Emotions

This process of accepting all the inner layers of oneself is sometimes referred to as dissolving. Dissolving is an alchemical term. The laboratory alchemist first dissolves the impurities in a substance in order to extract its original pure essence. The inner alchemist, here the adept practicing the Inner Smile, energetically dissolves the impurities and layers of resistance within their own body-mind so their true soul essence can emerge. This dissolving process is an energetic neigong...
