The Warrior’s PrayerI am what I am.In having faith in the beauty within me I develop trust.In softness I have strength.In silence I walk with the gods.In peace I understand myself and the world.In conflict I walk away.In detachment I am free.In respecting all living things I respect myself.In dedication I honour the courage within me.In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.In freedom I have power.In my individuality I express the God-Force within me.In service I give of what I have become.I am what I am:Eternal, immortal, universal.~ Stuart Wildewww.stuartwilde.com

In the Olympics there is the Torch Relay, where the runners run a certain distance and pass on the torch to the next runner, and they must then pass it on and so forth. Each torch must stay lit and it must successfully be delivered to the next runner. You can't let the flame go out. The Torch Relay is much more symbolic than at first glance, and so is the title of being "the keeper of the light." The distance the runner runs is a symbol for their lifetime and the torch is a symbol for love, compassion, and ultimately warmth. Like the Olympic runners we all possess a responsibility to be the relay runner and keep the light moving. We are all embodiments of this powerful light, call it what you will, God, the God-Force, Energy, Chi, or simply spirit or love. The people in this world who are abused and mistreated as children often learn to do the same to their offspring and people who they can physically overpower. Being a keeper of the light is a noble responsibility and passing on the light is what fills this world with compassion
. For the most part we all have been taught the Golden Rule, but the Golden Rule lacks one thing. The way I was taught to remember the Golden Rule is "treat others as you want to be treated." But what if we expanded on it? What if we strived a little further? What if we altered it to make it say:
"Treat others better than you treat yourself."
Pass on the torch and let the light guide your life and your life decisions.
THE TOLEMAC FLAG
5’ 8” / 175cm long and 3’ 1” / 95cm wide
I recently placed an order for The Tolemac Flag over at The Sacred Tears of Gaia.
They have some powerful sacred objects and The Tolemac Flag is one of them. What prompted me to buy one is yesterday it finally clicked what the flag is all about. It is a symbol for stepping through the Hidden Door. At the center is a Templar Cross, above it is the Holy Grail, and over in the right corner is a tiny Tolemac symbol. If you notice behind the flag there is an alter and the Golden Chalice sitting on top. The spiritual path to inner peace... Heaven.
I was humbled today, and it was so refreshing. I received an email last night from Ryan McCormick who was Stuart Wilde's last PR rep before Stu passed away. This for one was delightful, since I have been a fan of Stu's since 2009 I was very excited to be hearing from someone who personally worked with him, but the most humbling part was Ryan shared a link to a tribute he put together on his show. It is really magical and humbling and it inspired me to share this brief post along with a link to The Outer Limits of Inner Truth.
My teachers have referred to this as "The Quickening," Stuart Wilde wrote a wonderful little book under the same title, I suggest you obtain a copy and read it. The Quickening raises your energy to a heightened state and allows you to both perceive and accomplish magnificent feats much faster than you ordinary would.

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

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.
Every so often one crosses paths with a true master. A subtle transaction of energy takes place. There is a mysterious and internal communication that exchanges silently. It is beguiling, enchanting, and empowering. The person is magical and mysterious, warm and empowering. To most people they just can’t place their finger exactly on what it is that attracts you to this person, the exact words to explain this subtle feeling are fleeting. For some magical and seemingly unknown reason the person acts as a magnet pulling in successful relationships, money, love, inspiration, and anything else they desire. Everything works in perfect harmony for them. Life is easy, their physical body, energy, posture, and charisma all act as a magnet that makes people go crazy over them. They are successful and powerful, but quiet, controlled, and humble. Their power is not necessarily that of riches and glamour but it is more so an immense level of respect and fascination of others to where he/she almost appears to be Godlike, this is because they are consciously connected. Everyone wants to be like them but very few know how or even what it is they need to do to create this feeling.
From now on out we will refer to this person as a Sage. A Sage is a master of them self. A Sage is the highest position a person can be because he or she is the lowest. A Sage puts everyone else above themselves, and in turn it makes them the highest. It sounds like a paradox, but speaking above others is being combative. Trying to be smart, trying to be cool and trying to win approval is weak energy. It is making others feel less because you think you are the best, so the other person has no room to feel empowered. We are here to empower others, not ourselves. Empowering others is the true source of power for a Sage. A Sage is the highest position of power any human can obtain, but they do so without exerting power or control over others. The only power they seek is the power to control themselves. A Sage has complete and total control over themselves. This is the purpose of this book, to teach you how to become a Sage, to teach you how to control yourself and in turn empower others. You will become a master and a teacher, but only if you take the steps necessary. It will not be easy and the reality is many of you may fail. But failing only happens if you give up, and if you do fall, start climbing again. You have control over your life; now show it, but not to prove it to everyone else, but to prove it to yourself. Do it for others, but tell no one of your journey. It is sacred, it is private, it is personal. Together we can heal the world. Persevere and live the life of a Sage. This is the path to eternal happiness. This is the ultimate love you can give the world.
If you give up you are destined to fall back to your normal humdrum state from which you came. If you are reading this, chances are you are like me and want to escape the humdrum world we call “Tick Tock”. You probably seek a higher energy level and have the desire to make a change. This little book has the potential to positively change your life forever if you allow it. If you honestly apply the lessons taught you will be rewarded with a humbling gift. But it is a journey that will never end. It is continuously making the conscious decision to act, talk, walk, and become the Sage. It gets easier the more you learn, and eventually, with discipline, meditation, and perseverance you will be doing what I am doing now. You will become the teacher in your own way, which will empower others to take action in their lives to change for the best. This is my goal: to inspire the world to empower themselves to empower others. To me this is the greatest blessing of them all. Come now. We have much to learn.
It has been a while since my last post, but the passing of my revered teacher Stuart Wilde has inspired me to action. The energy that was Stuart Wilde has left the physical plane in it's most well known form, but good news. The energy has been absorbed by many people. A vision came to me and in the vision I absorbed a tiny particle of Stu. A portion of his wisdom was directly absorbed through my crown chakra. Many people are taking his place as teachers. This is one thing he taught me to do. It has taken time for the transformation to take place, but now I understand.
It is sad and he will be missed, but the work must go on. The Tolemac will not be forgotten. I see a major event taking place and it starts with each and every one of us. Let the light live in you. Be a metaphysical light house and cast away all darkness. That is a metaphysical reality that will bring us to a new age.
