Relaxing in the natural state or the state of Tao and be One with nature is the ultimate path to freedom.
To be able to do that:
You need to be introduce on what is the natural state and experience it.
Have a concrete understanding and experience that every thing is empty of origin, the vast expand of dharmakaya.
Recognizing dharmakaya is when you become aware of the vast emptiness, spaciousness of the mind.
When you accept and recognize it, the direct introduction from a qualified teacher is done.
One must learn how to relax the mind without distraction and concentration, within the spaces of silence the natural state manifest itself.
Once the natural state is recognize there is nothing else to do than just relax remainning in the state without distraction and concentartion.
In Dzogchen this is the series of Semde that work at the mind level.
When you see your own mind awareness it encompass all field of experiences, there is no more sense of good or bad.
When you are in the natural state no thought can be present.
The only thing that is permanent is the natural state, the mind awareness. Every thing else is impermanent and changes from one color to an other, from one experience to an other.
When you recognize this state in all type of sensations /feelings, visions from the mind clarity and experiences of void then you know this is it, there are no more doubts about what it is to be like a Buddha, Christ.... , what is your natural or the Tao.
In Dzogchen this is the series of space, going beyond any doubts with the practices of Longde. In this series we are holding special positions and energy point with a special gazing. With the combination of the 3 one just relax and experience its true nature...
At this point where no more doubts are present you just need to develop the natural awereness of state in all actions of life from day to night.
In Dzogchen this is the secret series with the practices of Thogal that work with the light as a secondery cause, Trekchod that cut trought all and Yangti that use the dark as a secondery cause. T
Those practices help to devellop the capacity to integrate diverse experiences and can bring toward the rainbow body or the great transfer.
Once you remain in the natural state fully relax in nature the inner alchemy and rejuvenation of all your cells take place without any effort.
From that point so much mysteries can be revealed without seeking them.
This is what the Grace of Being teaching is all about.
Here I use the term Dzogchen the great perfection .
This great perfection is found in many traditions. It is possible that at some point I will introduce the students to methods that are more from the Ati Yoga or from the Essenes or from the Taoist or from the Siddhas or Rishis tradition.
What is important is that all link together and that one does not get lost in diverses views.
The view must be the same because it is the starting point the way to express the view in a different color like in a more Buddhist, Christian or Taoist way... does not matter, it is just a matter of culture or tradition that use diverses terminology.
But the view must be the same or it will bring more confusion.
Without the view no path is possible.

Budhanath, Nepal November 29 2019
One of this century's greatest Dzogchen masters was Tulku Urgyen that i meet during my first visit to Nepal with my root teacher/master Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche in 1993.
After receiving teaching and being in the presence of Tulku Urgyen, while staying near Buddhanath stupa, I felt a call to hike in the hills beyond the stupa . At that time it was all country side area, very different from now.
I started to walk and felt that Tulku Urgyen was guiding me to his place, at that time I had no idea where it was, perhaps some place in the mountains. After a couple hours or more, i do not remember, i arrive to a village with a small temple. I ask a monk : is this Tulku Urgyen place, he said yes.
I stayed in total surrender not putting my mind into action, just remaining aware.
Mind would have say lets ask for his house and see if i can meet him physically.
But I knew this was not wright, he guides me up to here so it must be a good reason.
I walk directly to the small temple (Gompa ) opened the door, pay homage then sit assuming the lotus position in front of the shrine and remained there letting myself be infuse by Tulku Urgyen blessings,presence.
He was not there physically, any way in the same room but it was like he was. This was so powerful for me, his blessings and the transmission he gives me at the time remains with me even today.
Thank you . Bless Be
Tulku Urgyen Rimpoche wrote
From his book titled As It Is, volume 2, pages 168 and 169:
A student asks: Can there be thinking during Rigpa (Buddha Mind).
Rinpoche: "It is essential to resolve the fact that there is no namtog (thought) whatsoever in the state of rigpa; it is impossible..... I cannot emphasize this enough - there is no thought during the state of rigpa!"
From the book Rainbow Painting:
"When there are no thoughts whatsoever, then you are a Buddha"
"Thinking only begins after marigpa (ignorance) sets in, at the loss of rigpa. During the non distraction of rigpa, no thought can begin. I cannot emphasize this enough —there is no thought during the state of rigpa!"
"Honestly, there is nothing more amazing than this recognition of rigpa in which no thought can remain."
Yoga is not about trying to understand teaching, sacred scriptures, debating, philosophy....it is about experimenting within, letting go the mind, applying methods and experience them within.
Only like this you can gain True knowledge and go beyond doubts and questions.
You can know only what you experience. the rest is just your imagination.
Yoga is a science to expend the dimension of what you are.
True Yoga as nothing to do with postures that requires to be very flexible, the diverses postures or asanas are only there to maintain some openness in the body and to guide the prana in a certain ways so you can be more relax and create the space within to experience who you are and how your body, energy, mind fonction.
When you have an understanding based on the experience of it, then only you have true knowledge.
True Yoga brings you to face yourself, to recognize your boundaries and limitations of all sorts, only when those boundaries, limitations are gone one can experience true joy, bliss, ecstasy and be free.
It is so because your essence has no boundaries, no limitation it is pure, clear and spacious since the beginning.

Today many people are very good talker presenting many points, ideas.
Every one is trying to present their own theories but are they really making a change in life by working into the body transformation, letting the Divine consciousness animate each cells of their physical matter the body.
Most of the time no.
They stay at the mind level.
Then the liberation will be only trough the mind and not within the energy and then the physical body.
Only if one let the supra consciousness to be awakened within each atom of the physical body one can help planetary transformation.
Of course this is not easy but this is what is asked today.
This process have been proven by many great Saints , Yogis that have transformed the physical matter into light. Even in this process we have diverses levels of achievements from the rainbow body at the time of death where each elements dissolves into the Light essence of the element during the death process, note that many yogis have achieved this. Then we have the transformation of the physical matter into light during one life time, very few have realized this.
This approach is what have animated my studies, research and practice up to today. This is the path I teach in the Grace of Being retreats.

I really found similarity with my way of life and this text. This is why I like to share it with you this say that wrote :
On Yogic Conduct.
Behold! Yogis who abide in the immutable nature of nonduality possess not the least desire for accepting or rejecting.
Since I neither hold nor discard anything, there is nothing I would tell you, my sons, to do. Just as the "holy grail" (mani) of the mind has no objective substantiality, so the conduct of a yogi is a life devoid of external trappings. Even though we talk of various ways of behaviour, the yogi acts directly out of his perception. And since that is not determined [by external rules or conditions], the yogis conduct is completely free and unconditioned. Like an innocent child, or a crazy person without premeditation, so one should act.
Wonderful! Mind is like a lotus, growing up out of the mud of Samsara! How ever many are the defilements, it remains unstained. Let food and drink, sensual pleasures, or the afflictions of mind and body, be just as they are. Whatever occurs, there is nothing to do or liberate.
In the State of Realization's spontaneous display of conduct, upon witnessing the suffering of worldly beings, tears of overwhelming compassion naturally flow forth. Taking on their suffering and giving in return one's own well-being, thus one engages in healing others for their sake. Examining what is, one finds that reality is free from the three constructs of subject, object and medium. Worldly existence is unreal; it is like a dream or a magical illusion. Free of attachment and aversion, the yogi experiences a pure joy devoid of sorrow, and acts like a master of illusion putting on a performance.
**The Mahamudra Dohakosa
Man is fire, light, Yang
Woman is water, shadow, Yin
Both Yin and Yang are necessary for life to be
When we unite Yin and Yang we haveTai ji
Both Man or Woman have fire and water in them
The inner diamond or the sacred space of the heart act has a
It is with the reflection of this mirror that the inner and outer couple will develop
the knowledge of the inner dance of the Yin and Yang or Tai ji.
When one experience that there is no difference between Yin and
Yang, that both are part of the same play.
One reach the great ultimate or Tao.

Question from Wake
First Request Guru Ji: xsmission of intimate detail on how why to use longde (space) position and comparison to Thogal!!!
Longde is the series of space that correspond to the second statement of Garab Dorje, going beyound doubts. Normaly in the teaching once one has receive direct introduction on the Natural State and for example practice the 4 contemplation of Dzogchen Semde that help to reinforce what has been experience during the direct introduction. Then one might have some doubts about what is the natural, primordial state ?
At this point it is recomended to practice Longde that is very precise and will help the practitioner to go beyound any doubts about what is his primordial state.
Thogal,Trekcho, Yangti comes after with the thrid statement of Garab Dorje with the secret series that help to devllop and integrate all experiences remaining present in your natural condition or rigpa.
For myself Longde was a very important step. Longde can be devellop for continuing to devellop the vision like in Thogal, it does not require any sun, light like in Thogal or a dark room with Yangti, any place is fine. However for a good practice of Longde it is better to have some experience with the inner yogas, like Yantra Yoga, Tsa lung thigle ..
