Barefoot Satsang series – The Message

Barefoot SatsangSatsang is an ancient Sanskrit word.

It means sitting together in truth – hanging out in mutual authenticity, without artifice or pretence in order to feel and commune with the core of each other, and so elicit an experience of the underlying background presence informing us all and all of this.

Whenever we meet together in awareness of this presence (the Tao), it brings healing and miracles for all present. This energy spreads by ripple effect to everyone you know, from them to everyone they know and so on six times, until everyone on Earth is benignly affected. In this sense, it’s world- healing.

My latest series of healing satsang meditations is based on my latest book The Message – Vision for a New Golden Era.  We’ll be reframing the Ten Commandments to evolve a new way of living together as we enter possibly the greatest transition of conditions ever experienced by humankind.

By eliciting love, by accessing the angelic presence within via the Taoist internal alchemy, enlightenment occurs, along with a natural empathy-born ethos of decency, for which amazingly/ironically the Ten Commandments provide the perfect guideline, in that once enlightened it’s obvious you put no other lesser gods before the one presence, it’s obvious you don’t want to kill, or steal and so on. It’s a fascinating exploration and gives rise to the deepest insights and template for living together in a new way in a new golden era.

If you’ve never been to a Barefoot Satsang before, all you need is your computer, preferably with some headphones. Each satsang comprises a 20 minute reflection on the topic being covered before I lead you into a 20-30 minute guided meditation. Then there’s the opportunity to ask questions on what’s come up in the session or on any issues or challenges with which you would like my help.

Attending a satsang elicits the sensation of basking in the Tao’s love. Not only does it fortify and align you to be able to experience and perform at optimum levels for the week ahead, it clarifies your mind and focus and so helps you in making those difficult decisions and choices. It also sends out a force field of positively charged healing energy throughout the collective field and so helps accelerate evolution for everyone. And as far as I can see, this is fairly crucial for the human experiment at this momentous time.

    I entered “smoothing music” into my search engine and got Jodhaa Akbar, the lovely Hindi opera, among other works, then You Tube, in the quirky way it operates, gave me “Steps to Manifest What You want the Taoist Way by Barefoot Doctor”, an interview at by Lilou Mace. I clicked on that option (I have a Daoist Convent Study Group here in Cleveland, Ohio, so I had an inkling of what to expect, but found expectations even succeeded.) I like the tenor of your comments of May 12, 2012 on the Satsang, they accord with my general perceptions. I’ll point my Monetary policy & justice group to them: there is no simple mechanical way to get out from the ramifications of the debt overhang situation without vast injections of love and investment by the debt-holders into and for the benefit of their communities and the world community generally. Enlightened self-interest always beats out narrow, myoptic self-interest. We have, in this advanced, electronically-interconnected age of creating new bounds of togetherness and common interest through our great new communications means. Shalom, salaam, namaste.

      Hi Dietz, I love the way you express it – you’re eloquent and erudite and a pleasure to read. Thankyou – love, Stephen

      Enlightened self-interest is a good way to express it – realistic and positive – may it spread and we all come together to discover better and better ways to negotiate this unprecedented passage in human history – you never know we may actually swing things round to the ways of wisdom, love, collaboration, mutual support and global kinship – shalom
