1 Everyone has roots in the Dao, and everyone is united with the Dao. Everyone can cultivate the Dao and everyone can attain the Dao. Cultivating the Dao is no more than cultivating the self. Outside of the self, there is no Dao.
2 To cultivate the Dao, you must first make your heart upright, since the Dao is in the human heart. All you need to do to turn it around is to seek it in yourself. It is up to you to quiet-sit and cultivate.
3 Chinese Original Quiet Sitting is part of China’s heritage. It was passed down from ancestors about 5,000 years ago. It can strengthen bodies and bloodlines, nurture life, confer longevity, and unite heaven with humanity. For ancient Daoists, it was the fundamental practice for tempering spirit and flesh in order to transcend the bonds of physicality, and to attain eternal life through wondrous transformation of body and spirit.
