Keep in mind that a lot of versions are interpretations rather than translations.
Well, good! Since that's the one I've loved since the 70s!!

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"
~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.

I see your point StarJumper. As someone with only documentary knowledge of the Tao I did not take time to think that the meaning I see may change depending ones deeper wisdom of thmselves and the Tao. Thank you very much for the source, and I will look for this Hia Fu Feng and Jane English translation to see if it may help.

If you are interested in seeing some conversation on the TTC by some Western Taoists I invite you to check out a forum with the name Original Dao. That's where I usually hang out, because I'm finding this forum doesn't get much action.
