Questions & Answers
Human love is limited. Da Ai, Greatest Love, is unlimited and unconditional. To love unconditionally has been the highest calling for spiritual and humanist teachers in all traditions throughout history. This is not a sentimental or romantic love with human limitations. The Greatest Love is an unbounded, higher and eternal love that pervades the universe.
The secret is that the Greatest Love can melt all blockages and transform all life. To connect with unconditional love empowers us to transcend challenges in all aspects of our experience, including relationships, health, finances, and our overall well-being. It connects us with a higher frequency and vibration and enriches life in remarkable ways.
The Ten Greatest Qualities are both sacred wisdom and practical tools for becoming our best selves. They are the highest, divine qualities that are in all of us, but not always expressed.
They are greatest love, greatest forgiveness, greatest compassion, greatest light, greatest humility, greatest harmony, greatest flourishing, greatest gratitude, greatest service, and greatest enlightenment.
Our negative mindsets, emotions, actions, and words can keep us from embodying and living in alignment with the Ten Greatest Qualities and prevent us from experiencing and using our true potential. When we connect with these highest qualities through a daily practice, we can find the purpose of life, purify our hearts and souls, transform our lives, and help humanity.
Shen qi jing means soul, heart, mind, energy, and matter. Shen means soul, heart and mind, qi means energy, and jing means matter. Everyone and everything is made up of shen qi jing. When these are out of alignment, illness, problems, and challenges occur. Master Sha explains it very clearly: “If a fish lives in polluted water, the fish becomes sick or dies. This is a simple fact. To save the fish, we must purify the water. The same is true of human beings.” When we connect and align with the pure shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy) and jing (matter) of the Greatest Love in the universe, we clear away the internal pollution caused by our negative mindsets. Master Sha shares this ancient wisdom, “The Big Universe and human being join as One.” When human beings join in this way with the universe, this harmony and unity can bring tremendous benefits and flourishing for human beings and the world.
Following the sacred wisdom of the Ten Greatest Qualities and a daily practice of only 30 minutes can clear soul, heart, mind, energy, and matter. This can empower us to remove inner blockages and the effects of our negative behavior, thoughts, emotions, and words and allow us to bring ourselves into a state of oneness and alignment. The shen (soul, heart, matter), qi (energy), and jing (matter) of families, businesses, cities or towns, countries, and Mother Earth can all be purified, with enormous benefits for all.
Soul is the leading component and ultimate guide for our whole being. It is the essence of who we are. When we connect and communicate with our souls, we can create harmony between soul, heart, mind, energy, and matter, and life can go much more smoothly. There is also communication between all these parts of ourselves. The soul leads the heart, the heart leads the mind, the mind leads energy, and energy leads matter. The soul gives messages to the heart, the heart receives them and then leads the mind or consciousness. Meditation and mindfulness show us the effects of mind over matter. But resistance to the messages from our souls can create a variety of obstacles to our living flourishing lives. On the other hand, if we follow our soul’s messages and cultivate Greatest Love – Da Ai, soul, heart, mind, energy, and matter can join as one and we can clear our path to happier, healthier, and more successful lives.
Tao Source Calligraphy is a form of Oneness writing that carries the highest frequency of shen (soul, heart, mind), ji (energy), and jing (matter). Everything and everyone is made of shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter). For people to be happy and healthy, they need to bring these aspects of themselves into a purer condition, and into alignment with higher qualities. Tracing and writing this calligraphy brings your frequency in alignment with the Source of life and can clear and bless your shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter). It is based on a unique one-stroke calligraphy called Yi Bi Zi. Master Sha learned this sacred form from the over 100-year-old teacher Professor Li Qun Yun, who learned it from Tai Shi (Supreme Teacher), the teacher of the last emperor of China and the royal family of the Qing Dynasty. Professor Yun is considered a national treasure in China and has been recognized by the United Nations as one of the world’s leading experts in the Chinese language. After mastering Yi Bi Zi, Master Sha created Tao Source calligraphy, which combines the artistic beauty of Yi Bi Zi with Tao blessings and light. Tao Source Calligraphy creates a field of the purest shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter). Through connecting with this purest form, our own shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter) can become clearer and free of the negative aspects that block us. This can bring great blessings and benefits for our overall well-being, our relationships, our intelligence, finances and businesses, and open up our spiritual channels to enlightenment.
- The first phrase is First Give Greatest Love. This is the starting point.
- The second phrase is Unconditional Love, the love that is Tao love, the Creator’s and Heaven’s Love. The sun, the moon, stars, Mother Earth, and Heaven give unconditional love in every moment and ask for no returns. These are our great examples of unconditional love.
- The third phrase is Melts All Challenges and Disasters. This phrase tells us of the immense benefits of unconditional love.
- The fourth phrase is Clears your Heart and Enlightens Soul, Heart, and Mind. This is what Greatest Love – Da Ai can do for us.
Tracing or writing Tao Source Calligraphy can all be easily applied to nourish any part of the body, emotions, relationships, or any aspect of life. This simple practice can bring out your true nature and potential and align you with the Greatest Qualities of love, compassion, forgiveness, and more, the highest qualities that come from the divine and Source of all life and are within us, but often inactive because of the negative states of our shen (heart, soul, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter). Through these practices, you begin to match the higher frequencies in the universe. This empowers you to become healthier and happier, with more energy, vitality and stamina. It may create abundance in your life, more harmonious relationships, increase your intelligence, build up your vitality and stamina, and much more.
Amongst the many techniques that can help people, I teach a special Five Power Technique that can be applied to all aspects of life. This includes body power, mind power, soul power, sound power, and Tao Source Calligraphy tracing power. The combination of these techniques, along with the heart and soul clearing from a Forgiveness Practice, has tremendous power to remove blockages and allow you to live a more loving, fulfilling, and rewarding life. Doing thirty minutes daily of the practices that are presented very clearly in the book can have immense benefits.
Chanting is an ancient practice that has been proven to have a powerful effect not only on the people chanting, but also on the total environment around them. According to ancient tradition, when you chanted the name of a saint or buddha, you took on their heart, their soul, and their service. The saying was, “Chant a buddha to become a buddha.” The realization was that you become what you chant. As you chant Da Ai, Greatest Love, you become Da Ai. The more you chant, the more you become unconditional love, nourishing and unblocking your heart and soul and opening up your life to success in every aspect of life.
Forgiveness is key to opening your heart and soul to unconditional love and to living a healthy and happy life. Many studies have shown that a lack of forgiveness can increase the risk of heart attacks, raise blood pressure, and have a negative effect on mental health. I teach a sacred formula that is easy to practice that can help people to be able to forgive and to humbly ask for forgiveness. We all have been hurt and have hurt others, most often unintentionally. When you add a simple forgiveness practice to your daily life, you can bring inner peace to yourself and reawaken to happiness and joy you may have been missing. You can do this very simple practice anytime, anywhere, for a minute or much longer. It can clear your shen (soul, heart, mind), qi (energy), and jing (matter) of all sorts of problems and blockages and free you to experience unconditional love and a harmonious oneness, within yourself, with the other people in your life, and with humanity and the universe.
