Taoís Divinity

Tao created the cosmos. All changes in the cosmos are the manifestation of Taoís existence. Mankind and all other beings originated from Tao and rely on it for their developments. Tao is the Lord of the cosmos, the Truth, the Way and the Life. Tao is void, still, majestic, reverent and divine. Tien-Tao names Tao as the WU-JI LAO-MU to honour its benevolence in cultivating the cosmos and nurturing all lives. Tien-Tao also names Tao as the Lord of all souls or God. Taoism names Tao as origin; Buddhism as the Buddha; Confucianism as Heaven or God; Christian as God, Father or Jehovah and Islam as Allah. Although various religions and Tien-Tao name Tao differently, they all refer to Tao, the only God in the cosmos and the only Lord of all souls. He governs the order in the cosmos, the changes in Heaven and Earth and the very existence of mankind.


Modern society with scientific advancement and materialism make many do not believe in God and claim that the existence of the cosmos is merely a natural phenomenon; all inventions by humans are the culmination of human intellects. One should ask who created such magnificent natural phenomena? Does human possess such ability? Where does humanís ability to invent come from? When we see light, we realise the existence of sun. When we see people, we realise that substances exist. When we see a child, we reason that he has parents and ancestors. This should make us realise there is an origin which we merely call God for easy understanding, the creator and the existence of God. When one drinks, one should be grateful to the origin of the water, the creator or beginning or existence.


Everyone knows that parents give us physical bodies but do not realise that God has given us True Selves or the souls. In other words, we know only the origin of our physical bodies, but not the origin of our souls. Most people rely solely on observation to determine the existence of beings or substances. They only accept the existence of these that can be observed and deny the existence of those that cannot be observed. Fish living in water can only see what are in the water, human living on earth can only observe what are on earth. Unfortunately because of these, mankind is lost. All beings thriving on Earth should remind us of Godís blessing and cultivation.


Our souls originate from God. In other words, our souls comprise of Godís spiritual energy Ė Tao; that is why we all are a part of God. The Buddha said "everyone has a bodhi". Confucius said "mankind must serve God (Heaven)". Jehovah said "everyone is the son of God. Everyone is Godís child". Once one attains Tao, he will realise God is within himself.
