"Heaven, Earth and the Community"
The key question is: What are the causes of today's man's
(Wo)Man as a creature is not perfect.
At the beginning of history he/she understood himself, however,
as part of a larger Whole
He/she lived largely in harmony with "Heaven, Earth and the
Time was regarded cyclical, life ruled by Cosmic Law: "Dying
and becoming" (JW von Goethe)
Through increasing property and power, man broke away out of this
Law, stepping out of the Eternal Cycle of Death and Rebirth, death became irrevocable.
This caused his life-long (existential) Angst.
Self-assertion e.g. "survival" became the ongoing
obsession of ego. It feels threatened by the world, instead of feeling at home in it.
Decisive in history was the appearance of Christianity
In favour of its "Good News" it definitely destroyed
the pillars of the old society, to know:
Direct contact with Heaven (God-realized people persecuted as
"heretics"), the Earth (sacred nature, pagans, women, witches) damned as evil
par excellence and the Community (rituals, traditions, social structures) destroyed
After many centuries! of terror ("Inquisition"), people
had only ONE way out: To fall back on their ego's, as the only area that had been spared
The Church itself is thus the cause of "secularization"
(subsequently started fighting against it (...)
However, people perceived this as a liberation

Greed and power (Machiavelli) spread out ever further. The
National States expanded through conquest and colonization.
Big "progress" was achieved by industrialization and
technology, whereby the ego reached an enormous expansion.
In the 20th century this led to the great disasters, in which
ego, greed, power, and technology are the main perpetrators. (Phase II of the
Today, the situation is totally unleashed. The Western ego (with
the United States at the top) has become so overblown that it threatens to destroy the
This briefly summarizes the fateful history of Western
"civilization", called by me Phase III of ego-catastrophe.
It tells the history of the ego, from the beginning as Wholeness
to today's one-dimensionality
The most tragic thing is, that the ego is not our true identity,
our disaster is instead caused by a surrogate-I.
This "I" was born when it was breaking away from the
Whole. It became an isolated entity, living in its own thought and imaginary world, only
His ordeal consists of fear, existential insecurity, isolation
from life, powerlessness and inferiority complex on the one hand and his overcompensation
- greed, abuse of power, hatred, envy, on the other.
It puffs itself up in order not to be confronted with
nothingness, ultimately with Cosmic Nothingness.
That's why it feels "everything else" - everything
unknown - to be a threat, because this confrontation brings his own shaky existence into
Everyone is a (potential) rival, an enemy: Jews, Communists,
Vietnamese, Muslims, Russians, Chinese.
However, it is clear: We ourselves are our own enemy, an ego
which is "thrown back on itself" and therefore can not save itself.
His only salvation is once again become part of the Whole - its
original, true home - what I have called his "Cosmo-Political Nature". It will
bring people freedom from fear, their dire longing for security and stability.
"The healing of humanity consists of once
again becoming part of the Whole: Heaven, Earth and the (new) Community"
"Heaven" is conceived as Absolute
Nothingness, the Void, Emptiness, Cosmic Vacuum, Cosmos, Cosmic Intelligence, the Great
Consciousness, the Ultimate, the Eternal Light, the Divine and God
In reality, however, the Divine is born out of
Nothingness, they are two sides of the same coin. Everyone is free to accept this or not.
Intentionally, no difference in the Universal
Declaration between Nothingness and God is made, so as to enable everyone, regardless of
religion, color, nationality, gender, etc., to interpret the term "Heaven",
according to his/her own preference.
Hence, "Heaven" claims to be universal
"Cosmo-Political" means: "The
earth, man and society as a reflection of Heaven". To differentiate it out: "The
Spirit as part of the Great Spirit, the body as a part of Nature and the "soul
"as part of the Community"
This is consistent with the archaic idea of
"macrocosm is equal to microcosm". This ethical imperative is confirmed by
Inevitable consequence is that the universe is
sacred, "governed" by Cosmic Law
This Law includes the two opposing, complementary
dynamic cosmic forces of birth and death, origination and destruction
Together they form the web of life of quantum
physics, which makes life on earth possible, including our own lives
Spirituality (Cosmic Realization) and science are
the two "Royal Roads" that make it possible for (wo)man to disclose the Cosmos
They are the basis of a fundamentally-new
Only on this basic action to save (wo)man and the
a new evolution can be set in motion
Rooted in Heaven, our ego is "automatically" pushed out
of its dominant position. Instead of being the center, it is now located on the periphery
Instead of having to obsessively follow its own ego-centric
impulses, it now has become servant of the Whole
At the same time our True Self, the one we really are, is born.
This would be enough for an inner transformation.
However, we are not only the spirit but also the body. We feel
this, when we want open up ourselves to Heaven, because that does not work without
relaxation, which in turn is not possible without the body
Once body-conscious, we spontaneously establish contact with our
immediate surroundings. With an expanding consciousness - sooner or later - we even

It's not that all just comes easily to you. We have been
distorted by the ego for a lifetime. Although "Heaven, Earth and the (new)
Community" is our True Nature, we have to practice to actually realize it
"For that purpose" the Cosmos has bestowed the gift of
the "Heaven and Earth Exercises" ("Tiendi Qigong", "sanctifying
Nature") upon me*. They miraculously lead you to a new Wholeness
