Inside Chi Flows Naturally:
1. There is some part of me wants to be a Billionaire. Not for the =20
money. It’s more for the feeling of materializing infinity, creating =20
Divine abundance that I would shower onto the planet on behalf of the =20=
Tao. A part of my Inner Boy that likes to have fun, by kindly =20
spreading wealth on a grand scale. A version of a cosmic Santa Claus =20
pretending to be God.
On this year’s China Dream Trip, my dream literally came true. Not =20
only did I get my hands on a billion dollars, I put my hungry little =20
mitts on TEN BILLION dollars! It inspired of course, a great =20
revelation. A flash in which I knew – in a dazzling nano-moment – that =20=
the money I held in my hands was just a thought form made physical. =20
Here’s the note, as real as the Federal Reserve Itself:
Never mind the funny Chinese writing on the bill, Ben Franklin is =20
the real deal, 100 of his wise grins multiplied 100 million times. It =20=
was at this Tao nano-moment that I transcended even the thought form =20
of material abundance, and reached into its very quintessence – and =20
BURNED UP my ten billion dollar bill.
That’s right, I lit a match to it, and sent its smoking essence into =20
the ethers, from where the true thought of abundance showered down on =20=
everyone and their ancestors.
Of course, all this is ordinary ritual for Chinese folk, who regularly =20=
burn paper money in big amounts to appease angry spirits and lighten =20
the load of those struggling in the world. And apparently it works. =20
Even the Federal Reserve itself has been inspired by these rituals in =20=
China to hand out ten billion notes like they were mere Ben Franklins, =20=
along with a prayer that America’s poverty-mentality be banished =20
forever and that we should never return to our foolish ways of =20
excessive borrowing against homes we never really owned.
Just in case the ritual petitioner doesn’t get the hidden message, =20
some of the money that gets burned spells it out, or rather mis-spells =20=
it out: “Hell Bank Note”. You are paying off the ancestors who got =20
sttuck in Debtor’s Hell, and who keep bugging you today for some of =20
your hard earned spare change. Finally, there will be peace on Earth, =20=
at least as regards money.
2. I’d like to announce that next year’s China Dream Trip in May =20
2010 will be accepting these ritual dollars bills as partial payment =20
for the trip (for those hurting from the recession). However, only =20
payments made with Exact Change will be accepted. That is, after all, =20=
one of the basic principles of Taoist internal alchemy: learning how =20
to “exact change” from your rigid old body-mind. Somehow our Monkey =20
Mind cleverly finds a way to resist exactly the change it needs….:)
The next Dream Trip will be an extra special opportunity for those =20
seeking spiritual change. We’ll burn through billions (trillions by =20
next year?) of ritual dollars in the caves on Mt. Hua, atop Mt. =20
Wudang’s Golden Peak, and at other powerful sites for releasing old =20
And a few years later, when the real US dollar goes up in smoke, we’ll =20=
just wink and smile at each other knowingly. Just dear Uncle Sam =20
burning up some old greed karma….. We’ll shift back in deep =20
meditation, resting calmly in the Tao’s infinite sea of abundant =20
essence, rising like sweet vapor from our inner cauldron.
3. I have posted some photos from our fabulous trip to China. Check =20
them out, more are coming soon from other trip members. Photo below is =20=
the gate at Weibaoshan in Yunnan Province, one of China’s most hidden =20=
Taoist jewels. .
Many folks had powerful experiences at Weibaoshan. I happened upon Liu =20=
Yuen Tong, a 20 year neidan (internal alchemy) practitioner, who I had =20=
never met on my previous two trips there. He immediately went into a =20
meditative trance, inspired he said, by the sudden appearance of three =20=
of my Tao immortal guides (reported to me by others as well). These =20
immortals requested Liu give me a tranmission of “xuan xue”, or =20
paranormal abilities at a distance. I got a download that went on for =20=
I mention this mainly to illustrate how open Chinese Taoists are =20
becoming to Western adepts of qigong and inner alchemy….and to =20
encourage you to participate in this exchange of spiritual cultures. =20
To be put on the advance notification list for the itinerary of the =20
2010 China Dream Trip, reply to this email (put “Add to china list” in =20=
the subject line.
4. I’ve also posted photos from my followup journey through North =20
Vietnam with some of the trip members. Vietnam was a part of China for =20=
a thousand years, so it very interesting to see that influence =20
Marjorie Pivar, one of my old kan & li alchemy students, wrote a =20
fabulous book about the Tao immortal tradition that survives in =20
Vietnam today: Fourth Uncle in the Mountain (St. Martin’s Press). It’s =20=
literally about earth immortals, living in deep caves in Vietnam for =20
hundreds of years. I was in the mountains of North Vietnam (the south =20=
is flat), but didn’t have time this trip to hunt down those “uncles” =20
of Marjorie’s Vietnamese teacher, who allegedly still live in those =20
caves. But you’ll see from the photos how very magical and mysterious =20=
the place is.
5. Although I’d planned this trip to North Vietnam over a year ago, I =20=
recently had found another reason to visit it. The KLD nano-motor, =20
which operates on a similar spiritual principles to the Taoist micro-=20
cosmic orbit, is abouit to make its debut in North Vietnam’s bustling =20=
motor scooter market. A large number of Taoist readers of this =20
nwsletter have already invested in this new electric engine, based on =20=
its promise of “cleaning and greening” the planet. The Vietnamese =20
governement, after Ho Chi Minh defeated the polluting war machine of =20
the U. S. in the 70’s, is now interested in using this nano-electric =20
motor to defeat the insidious rise of gas-engine pollution. It’s an =20
army of “guerrilla polluters” that is theatening to defeat Hanoi where =20=
the US army couldn’t.
Rickshaws compete with motorbikes in Hanoi’s traffic. Everyone tries =20
hard to breathe.
KLD Energy Technologies in Austin, Texas, the company in whom I was =20
the first Angel investor, has extended its A-1 Preferred Share =20
offering by a few months. At my request they are accepting small =20
investors who want to participate in what promises to be a very =20
successful business on all levels. If you have $25,000. or more to =20
invest, contact me immediately for more information (just hit return). =20=
I’ve posted below an article on the KLD nano motor that appeared on =20
CNN.com, if you want a quick overview.
4. Finally, a reminder that Mantak Chia opens up our summer of Tao =20
cultivation at Heavenly Mountain on June 12. We’ve had a slew of last =20=
minute signups, and there is room for more – they’ve now renovated =20
over 100 rooms at what will be called the The Lodge at Heavenly =20
Mountain. The rooms and views are spectacular. But the best is the 25 =20=

KLD Breaks the Electric Motor Paradigm: CNN.com story
Note: There are many reasons why I invested in this new motor, but for =20=
this Tao newsletter, the most relevant one is that the motor works on =20=
principles very similar to my own meditative practice of the Taoist =20
microcosmic orbit. The motor replaces the standard iron core wrapped =20
in copper at the center of gas motors with a nano-crystalline material =20=
that is formed by cooling it two million degrees in two seconds. This =20=
means the nano material doesn’t have time to be magnetized by planet =20
Earth’s polarized field.
This new motor has positive and negative magnets spinning around a =20
nearly neutral crystallized nano-metal that runs cool even at high =20
speeds. This is very similar to the yin and yang chi circulating =20
around the orbit. Motors are similar to human minds; if you have too =20
much “friction” in your mind, it won’t flow easily. You have to first =20=
open up the neutral space in your dantian and core channel, where the =20=
yuan chi (=3D neutral force) lubricates the flow of yin and yang in the =20=
outer bodily energy channels. That is what allows one to entr into wu =20=
wei, the Tao of spontaneous action.
I decided befoe I invested that I wanted to be driving a vehicle that =20=
was “energtically meditating with me” and not polluting the =20
environment. This technology is the merging of inner and outer =20
alchemy. Theoretically it could be used in every kind of motor on the =20=
planet. Tao will reveal all in time…. – Michael
Motorbiking, Asian-style: 8 on a bike! Count ’em!
Electric scooter hoping to spark eco two-wheelers
By Dean Irvine CNN
(CNN) — Much has been made of the electric car driving to the rescue =20=
of ailing automobile manufactures and saving the planet at the same =20
time. But what if that eco-savior came on two wheels instead of four?
A high price tag, a limited range, sluggish performance and the =20
tendency not to work when they get wet, have meant that electric =20
scooters are a rare sight on the roads.
However, KLD Energy Technologies, an electric engine company based in =20=
Texas believes that its new electric motor can overcome all these =20
problems and kick-start the sector. It’s teaming up with Vietnamese =20
motorbike manufacturer Sufat to produce an affordable electric-powered =20=
scooter that has a performance just as good as a normal petrol powered =20=
“We chose Vietnam [to launch the bike] because they’re 22 million =20
scooters in a country of 85 million people, that’s a lot of people =20
riding scooters in a contained area and the pollution is a concern. =20
All governments in southeast Asia are looking for solutions [to =20
pollution problems], but so far there hasn’t been one. We believe that =20=
we’ve found that solution,” Christian Okonsky, founder of KLD Energy =20
Technologies told CNN.
Rather than looking at making batteries more efficient, KLD have =20
improved the performance of the engine itself, building an engine =20
using nano-crystalline composite materials, which the company believe =20=
makes it ten times more efficient than traditional iron core motors, =20
and giving it an output of 2500 hertz.
Together with a computerized motor control, the KLD engine is =20
compatible with any type of battery. Top speed of the KLD scooter is =20
about 55 mph, which is almost double that of many electric scooters =20
and delivers twice as much torque, accelerating from 0 to 50 mph in =20
ten seconds. The engine also doesn’t require a transmission.
Range on a full charge depends on the type of battery used although in =20=
tests KLD say that their motor system extends the distance a battery =20
can go before a charge is required by 40 percent. If a typical battery =20=
can go, for example, 30 miles with a traditional electric motor, it is =20=
able to go 45 miles.
Cost-efficiency of components and years of technological development =20
have created the engine KLD have the sole license to produce.
“The nano-crystalline material was developed 20 years ago, but it was =20=
incredibly expensive and people couldn’t figure out how to use it in a =20=
motor. Even 10 years ago a computer to run this kind of high frequency =20=
engine would have been more like the size of a desk top computer. The =20=
magnets we use today that costs 20 cents, 10 years ago would have cost =20=
$4 to $5,” said Okonsky.
Vectrix Electrics is another company that has been developing electric =20=
scooters, so far selling only in North America and Europe. While the =20
performance of its scooters is comparable to KLD’s, their models sell =20=
at a much higher price tag around $11,000. Earlier this month Vectrix =20=
reported financial difficulties and has been forced to make staff cuts.
Okonsky, however, remains positive that the KLD scooter engine will be =20=
success and there is a market for electric powered scooters. By the =20
end of the year KLD are aiming for 2,000 scooters a month to be =20
produced bySufat with their electric engine. The projected retail =20
price is around $1500, only slightly more than Sufat’s existing bikes =20=
that sell in Vietnam for between $800 and $1250.
“Among two-wheelers a scooter is the best for electric drive,” auto =20
industry analyst John Wormald of Autopolis told CNN.
“A motorcycle is too performance-driven, so it’s not really suitable, =20=
but a scooter would be. For many electric bikes with very limited =20
battery capacity, the power is just an assist and the battery can be =20
heavy which isn’t a great if your cycling.”
Yet the market for electric bikes — the pedal variety with a battery =20=
pack — has been booming, particularly in China. According to the =20
China Bicycle Association, sales of electric bikes in China stood at =20
58,000 in 1998, compared with the 20 million recorded just a decade =20
later in 2008.
However, rather replacing cars, the majority of electric bikes are =20
affordable substitutions for bicycles, as Chinese cities continue to =20
grow and daily commutes get longer. Their impact in reducing pollution =20=
then is open to question as car sales in the country continue to rise.
Ultimately the real eco-credentials of electric vehicles depends on =20
how the electricity is generated, but for helping to relive vehicle =20
exhaust-filled streets, especially in Asia’s two-wheel dominated city =20=
centers, electric mopeds could go a long way.
As the idea of electric vehicles as viable substitutions for petrol-=20
powered one becomes more widely accepted, Okonsky’s bigger challenge =20
will convincing skeptics that the old problems of electric scooters =20
have been overcome. “I’m always asked, ‘What happens if I go through a =20=
puddle, will it still work?’ The answer is yes,” Okonsky said.
In fact, Okonsky says that they’ve tested their engine underwater and =20=
it still works — expect a video of the trial on KLD’s Web site soon.
Winn visits the Sufat factory near Hanoi that will soon produce the =20
new nano motor bike. Distributors in 30 other countries have expressed =20=
interest as well. KLD is less than a year old, and it will take time =20
to retool existing factories and distribution.
