This is perhaps the only known digital photo of Through the Hidden Door. This photo was sent to me by a friend who owns one of the only copies. I asked them to send me a photo of it because I thought it was important to make it's cover image available to the public; perhaps for the first time on the internet. To me this helps in visualizing, understanding, and attracting it to me. I have had many people contact me in regards to The Search for the Hidden Doorand I hope one day to completely unify the information and create a through understanding of the "Old Chinese" Philosophy.

This is my experience of the spiritual journey, transforming myself from defensiveness to openness, toughness to tenderness, moving from the world of fear to peace, and learning to accept the evolution of others. When I was a teenager I wanted to be tough, because with toughness came what I perceived as safety, security, and success. 

So I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Infantry, to become as tough as I possibly could become.  Sure enough my body was hardened, my emotions were controlled, and I was a living, breathing, walking fighting machine. I was a warrior. I had no fear of death, and I lived life to the fullest because I was at my maximum physical potential. I could run 9 miles in 55 minutes and I seemed to never get tired.

Hello beautiful people. 

I just wanted to give an update about the things that have been going on in my world. For those of you who do not know I have been learning Chinese for about a year now. Along with studying Chi Gong, Tai Chi, and Kung Fu, I have been learning the language. This seems like the only path to fully understand the Tao of the Old Masters, or other otherwise known as the Way of the Old Masters.

Hello beautiful people. It was exactly a year ago yesterday since I obtained a copy of this book. I promised to my friends on this site I would make the book available in the members area. Well I have hit a stall, so I have decided to post it this way. The book is in perfect condition, so I can't risk damaging it by scanning it. So I decided to take some photos of it, 157 to be exact. It's not finished yet, and please copywrite Gods, please do not smite me for this. It is an impossibly hard to find book and its not fair it is hidden from so many people. I will be publishing it publicly for research purposes here on my blog. But for now all that you get is the foreword, which is attached in this post. This isn't the most convenient way or the highest quality way to post the book, but hey... It's all ya got! Without further adieu... Drum roll....

This very rare book wrote from the transcripts of sessions with the channeled spirit Chung Fu is now available in the members area. One of our members scanned their copy and made it available for us all. We have more content to be made available soon. I will be uploading "The Search for the Hidden Door." If you have any contributions please email me at



Love for love, hate for hate, anger for anger,
jealousy for jealousy, your external life is a direct reflection of your
internal thoughts and feelings. Your external reality is a program that can be
manipulated simply by changing the way you feel. This was described by the
ancients as karma, or as we all know the common phrase "what goes around comes

If you feel you are experiencing external turmoil, remember it
may be a consequence of your internal thought patterns.

Your social reality is not only formed by your communication with others, but also with
yourself. Prayer is not only a minute here or a minute there, prayer is
communicating with truthful consciousness at all times; it is radiating the
warmth of love, humility, and sincerity with every breath.

To be true is to be real, it is only with the solidity of truth that allows one to be

I recently obtained an original copy of the increasingly rare out-of-print book The Search for the Hidden Door by Marshall N Lever. The book was published in 1981, and follows the diary and series of realizations by the author Marshall N. Lever during his sessions with the Chung Fu. Much of the information is not necessarily new concepts since it was one of the first books published about the "Old Chinese" philosophy. If you were/are a student of Chung Fu, Stuart Wilde, Khris Krepcik, or any derivative of "Old Chinese" you will probably be familiar with most of the teachings. Nonetheless the book is worth obtaining and it offers a deeper understanding of the philosophy and history.

Here Marshall first introduces the concept of the Nature Self (the natural you that flows effortlessly like an animal: The instinctual human side of your psyche.), which is the basis of many of Stuart Wilde's books, Geof Spaldings 33rd Sage series, and Chung Fu's own book Under the Plum Tree edited by Marjorie Giles. To the best of my knowledge this book is the beginning of the publications in regards to Chung Fu with the exception of personal jottings, diaries, or other publications I have not been able to locate.

The purpose of this blog post is to share some of the contents online because it is becoming increasingly hard to obtain a copy, and the information is not readily available. I am limited as to what I can share because I want to respect the current copyright laws, but what I can share will be beneficial and it will bring you one step closer to "knowing" the books contents. Nothing can replace owning a physical copy but for now this is all ya got!

Lets begin with a detailed list of the chapters, something you will not be able to find elsewhere on the web, and I am happy to be the first to share! Each chapter begins with the chapter title and a quote from "An Old Sage." Which is presumably direct words of Chung Fu. If you missed my blog post before last I talk about the correct pronunciation and meaning of Chung Fu. I clarify a few misconceptions that will help you better understand; if you wish to read it please click here.

Book Contents:


Chapter 1.-- The Search for the Hidden Door.
       Spiritual growth is an individual accomplishment. Others may point the way, but you do the growing. 
       An Old Sage

Chapter 2. --The Journey Begins.
       Man never reaches his highest potential when he is safe and takes things easy.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 3. --Thought - Word - Action
       Your thought can never rise higher than the state of realization created by your thought.
        An Old Sage

Chapter 4. --The Universal Laws
       Universal Law is the only law. All other laws are formed from the results of the Universal Law.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 5. --Denial and Affirmation
       An affirmative word used at the right time and with the right thought behind it has more value than a sack of
       polished emeralds.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 6. --Impossibilities [in the book the "im" of impossibilities is crossed out.]
       Nothing is impossible providing you believe you're God.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 7.-- Unlimited Limitations
       To be unlimited in thought, word, and action is to be a completely free human being.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 8. -- Change
       Change is necessary if you ever want to know where you have been.
       An Old Sage

Chapter 9. -- The Journey Continues
       The man who does a thing always has the thing he has done before his own eyes.
       An Old Sage.


The book is fairly short with only 147 pages and 9 chapters, and much of it is wrote in a nontraditional way such as a diary format, thoughts, and etc. Below I have attached some photos of the books contents. I will continue to write about this book as the weeks go on. I am currently reading this book along with two others, The 33rd Sage. A Modern Fable, and Under the Plum Tree by Chung Fu. I will incorporate what I learn into the upcoming articles and hopefully this will give you a better insight into the philosophy, along with a clearer picture of the unveiling of the wisdom that is "Old Chinese."

As always, thank you for reading and visiting my blog. Stay tuned. The Truth Awaits.

UPDATE: 3/18/15 The Search for the Hidden Door by Marshall N Lever channel of Chung Fu is now in print again for the first time in 35 years! Available on Amazon!

The teachings of "Old Chinese" has been a major influence in my life. I was unknowingly introduced to Chung Fu's teachings about 4 years ago. At that time I was in the military when I stumbled across a book by the author Stuart Wilde. Stu was very mysterious in his writings and much of what he writes is in code. There are many things hidden from normal sight, and with experience and dedication many of the secrets reveal themselves. 

Through my research I discovered who my teacher's teacher was, and in turn who his teacher's teacher was. It is a long line that goes back some 2,400 years, if not more. These are secrets I am hesitant to share, but I feel it is necessary to help others that are on the same path. I took about 4 years for me to make the connections that lead to the teachings of Chung Fu, and from there it sent me down a path that has been unbelievably deep and mysterious. Some of the books that are required to further my study are so rare they hardly can't be found, and if they are found they can cost upwards of $5,000 a copy. So needless to say the secrets are only available to the select few that are inspired enough to pursue. It isn't a path that is geared for the masses, and we understand that. It is available to anyone, but like any study, it is a discipline, and it also has to coincide with your personal destiny. For me it seems to be the right path.

So what I am wanting to clarify is we have all been slightly confused by the translations of Chinese Mandarin to English. The English word Chung Fu is actually a mistranslation of the pinyin. The reason I want to clarify this is because since I have been learning Mandarin I have had much difficulty finding the Chinese characters to accurately understand what Chung Fu means. The correct pinyin spelling is zhōng fú. So it should more accurately be spelled in English as Zhong Fu instead of Chung Fu. The meaning of "Chung Fu" is inner truth, which in simplified Chinese is

Zhong Fu comes from the I Ching: 61, and in the above photo you can see a very brief explanation of its meaning. Chung Fu was a Taoist master and disciple of Lao Zu circa 2,400 years ago. Similarly to Chung Fu, Lao Zu was not really the original authors name. In English Lao Zu should actually be Laozi, which simply means old man. Chung Fu is just a reference name to the spirit of Inner Truth. They may or may not be literal people, but the truth remains in their lessons.

I hope this has helped clarify to anyone studying "Old Chinese", and if you would like more information for further research feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
