Follow-up question: do you use Fi as the primary language to describe it? Is it the term you have found that best "fits" the concept, or do you use it here because it's something that people can understand, because it's the language spoken on the forum?
p.s. I clicked the The Tao Te Ching link AHHHH!!! Just reading the first chapter I sort of went crazy... in a good way... like I cannot wait to read more and more and think about it in relation to everything else. And then as I am asking you all of these questions it somehow it clicks a little bit in my mind.
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
So, I guess that is why I ask the questions... on some levels I am a little bit skeptical of limiting something to one name... but then giving a label of some kind is how we can communicate with other people and sort through things ourselves. It is like a tension between describing it enough to make SOME sense of it and not describing it so much that it becomes the description in our minds and we cannot perceive more of it revealed to us.
And then I can feel that sentence I just wrote echoing, echoing, echoing against all of these different ideas I've heard from all these other places...
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.
I just want it to sit there and echo around a little bit or something.
Sorry sorry sorry... this is not the thread topic at all. I am just so excited. I couldn't contain myself.
