I have been pursuing my spiritual interest for more than 20 years now. Having seen many ways from Indian and Chinese traditions over the time gave me some strong reference point – at least for an European – on evaluating the path, techniques, progress, goals and objectives of the practice.
I am happy I got a chance to study Longmen Taoist practices with Master Wang Liping. First because the methodology is well established and today we can benefit the hundreds of years of experimentation the Longmen ancestor did. Second because master has very good ability to transfer the knowledge and to subtlety influence the disciple’s body, energies and mind.
This is not an easy path. I think this is a good sign, I understood so far that acceding higher realms implies some sort of effort and suffering. Every bit of pain I suffer tells me I am coming closer to the place I want to be.
