'Buddhism' Chapter

Buddha

Buddhism is a very old “faith”, primarily concerned with a path of seeking and a body of practices with a code of conduct. The code of conduct is referred to as the eight fold path, focused more on elements of life style and courses of action. Buddhism seeks liberation from the cycle of attachment and pain in life.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” Buddha

Buddha nature itself is radiant, like the sun. Buddhism originated in India. Wuxing originated in China, and Wyrd originated in Europe. This forms a map of the Buddha nature.

“To understand everything is to forgive everything” Buddha

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Buddha

Navigating Your Wyrd

Flow of Chi

In wuxing everything is chi. What gives rise to the apparency of all the countless things is a process of filtering. Chi filtering down through one state into another, each point influencing the next one down the stream, but it’s… Seek More
