Taoist funeral and death is one thing that many people try to avoid talking about most of the time because they are scared of it or it just feels strange to them. Funeral is often something people did out of expectation, which most people run out of solutions or cannot make a good decision, and they often end up choosing something others recommended to them instead. Funeral and death, this is always a subject that I was asked to explain and give advice on. Why don’t I just do it here instead? Here we go. This article is about to begin to unleash the Taoist secret about death and funeral that all doesn’t know about in the past.
What is death about? What is a good way to treat your body after death? What is a good funeral suppose to do? What is the best way to die? These are all common questions that I heard from my clients and students.
Before we move on, please watch a short video on how Taoism explains the “Cycle of Life”. This will give you the basic idea of how Taoism explains life and death.
After knowing how the cycle of life works, you might realize that there is not even a hell or heaven in our theory! That’s right! Taoist doesn’t talk about a paradise like heaven or a torturing hell for whatever reason. Humans are just like any living beings on planet earth, they cycles through two realms on the same planet repeatedly and their souls cycles for another life after one life is over. That’s how we are, if we are not doing anything to screw up our own cycle process. Life is beautiful, if you know how to live a life with wisdom to make it enjoyable. Taoism teaches us how to live a life with wisdom and hence it becomes better and more better with time when you make the improvements. Why is cycling to another life seen as a suffering thing in Buddhism? Of course it is suffering – if you live a life their way. Now knowing that cycling to another life is a natural thing, why worry how our bodies are when we can cycle over naturally anyway? What happens when we die?
As we explained in the video above, a natural cycle of life shall be to have our soul-celestial evaporates and blend into the energy in space, our soul-mental and soul-physical gets to combine again and cycle to the gap between the yin and yang realm to awaits for another cycle of life to begin. That’s right. As long as your souls are combined and processed through without any obstacles, you are well off already because you are for sure safe to move on to another enjoyable journey. Nature shall bring you over there by itself. There isn’t even a need for human to do anything to make it happen. Zillions of monkeys, donkeys, whales, fishes, or whatever animals had already cycled through it naturally before you, why do you think we need a “ceremony” to make it happen?
Taoism suggest that the best way of treating your body after death is really to do whatever you want but not to go through a religious ceremony of any kinds other than Taoism’s way. To be honest, it is really safer to just bury your body under the ground in a cemetery, or to just burn the body and get the bone ashes and pour them down the sea or even just trash them out if you like, who cares about these things that the dead don’t even need anymore. It’s over then it’s over, a dead person doesn’t need anything to be held in this world. A picture, a frame or a stone, is only for the living beings to remember these dead people from time to time, that’s all.
What happen if you went through a religious ceremony? This is the hardest question to answer, but here I will get it straight up for you all. A religious ceremony is the worse thing you can do to the dead person because most religion on earth are already super polluted and evil, no matter how much love and peace they preach and promotes, they started evil and was always evil. Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, whatever you name it. If you can’t take my words here, sure, you are welcome to walk away if that is one thing you can’t accept. I am not going to stop here though, the show must go on. When one goes through a religious ceremony, the souls of that dead person will be eaten or captured by the evil gods who these evil religious prayers summons. After that, the person cannot go through a natural cycle of life, and they often just vanish from the universe forever, or they will be enslaved by the evil gods and ended up being an enslaved spirit instead. I like how Christianity promotes their heaven in some way. They say if you die and go to heaven, you are still a person with sin, who then go to heaven to serve your god. That means all that grape juice and beauties are not for you to enjoy. Those are for the god and his friends only. You go there to be a servant or slave of that god only, so suffer should be what you get instead. I can’t say it is accurate because that god doesn’t even exist, but then it is accurate that you die with their religious ceremony is surely going to lead you to nothing but suffer and pain afterdeath. If you want to cycle like everyone else, stay away from these religious rituals!
The soul-mental and soul-physical will cycle naturally by itself and they don’t need anything done in this world to even “help” them at all. Just let them cycle naturally and that is the best way to go. Even if one die in an accident, just let their bodies go through the normal process, burn or bury, anything is fine as long as it is legal. After that, there is nothing needed to be done because they are gone already, for real.
Some of you might think I am nut because I sounded like I hate all religions and trash them down here in this article. But what do you think I will gain from doing this? Nothing, actually I am risking the danger of loosing a bunch of audiences as well, but I still manned up to post this article. Why? Because that is the truth! I am not going to waste my time to put paddings between my lines to baby my good audience! If they come for my articles, they should expect to see something that Mak Jo Si can produce while other people can’t. A shocking, profound, unique and truth-filled article that shakes your brain up right away. I don’t give a dang about how people think about me. I just want to get the message across to those who really care. I am not up for any debates as well because it’s a waste of time to do any. If you like what I said, take it. If you don’t like it, leave it. That’s all I can say.
How do I know religious ceremony can nuke your ancestors? The answer is very simple – I saw it happened, I saw how religious ceremony can summon evil gods and do all that crap to the souls of those who passed away. If you cultivate under my lineage in the future, you might even get a chance to see these yourself too. If that happens in the future, you might be another Mak Jo Si who just splash out articles online this one here to tell people the truth. How many can take your words then? I don’t know, but I am sure someone out of the millions will appreciate it. That’s enough already.
I don’t do any afterdeath ceremony to “help” the dead ones to move on or anything, but I do offer magic service to help those who suffer from religious ceremonies to escape from the evil’s hands if they were not nuked yet. That’s all I can do. If you feel that someone you know passed away but you just want to give them some “help” to ensure their cycle is smooth, sure, we can do something to give them some energy to protect their souls while they are on the way to cycle to another life, but that’s about it. You don’t even need to do it too because they will cycle naturally if they did not worship any evil gods or any crazy things when they were alive.
Sometimes being an atheist is more fortunate than religious. If Taoism was not the religion you believe, I suggest you quit everything and just be yourself, or believe in science, that will be better than going into some crappy religion such as the major ones out there too. Please realize this – I don’t gain anything by saying this too. It’s all words from my heart only. Enjoy and take it if you like.
