MAGIC OF THE SINISTER WAY: Zuo DAO
Otherwise, there is the potential of misusing the infinite power available within the teachings of both Yang and Yin. Without guidance and instruction in energetic and spiritual integrity, the
innocence of the individual's awakened internal soul eventually enters into conflict as to how to
use and control this infinite power.All Practitioners of the Sinister Way start Yang,or Zheng Dao (True Way),as it is said in the Canon "The Wu of Yang seeks to gain control
over himself, while the Yao of Yin seeks to obtain control over others."Without true understanding and control over him or herself,The use of any dark Art will lead any practitioner to the disaloution of self. The use of sinister magic works with malevolent spirits and demonic entities by means of rituals, pacts and agreements, rites, seals, invocations, possessions and other spiritual practices in order to initiate control by creating desire,strong emotion, anxiety, depression, disease or death (physical, energetic and spiritual). This practice constitutes the principle functions of the demonic in Taoist Myth and legend.In Taoism,this type of sorcery was also called Yao Dao (the Way of the Demon), Yao Shu (Demon Skill), Yao Fa (Demon Law), or Xie Dao (the Evil Way), Xie Shu (Evil Skill), or Xie Fa (Evil Law). Yao Dao were famous for their ability to use various types of poisons as an instrument of magic (known as "Ku" sorcery). These priests could induce severe diseased states, initiate coma (in order to steal a victim's soul or Po), or cause death.The practice of Xie Dao lends itself to many applications. For example, such sorcery can be used for creating love spells or infatuation spells, to cause a separation, to cause a victim to become impotent or infertile, to ruin a rival's business, or to cause insanity or death. Taoist Exorcism Skills are still practiced by the Chinese in Malaysia and Indonesia to counter strike the black magic cast by the Bomoh / Pawangs in Malaysia and the Dukuns in Indonesia , that are regularly engaged by people to cast black magic to destroy their enemies.Most systems of sorcery and black magic practiced throughout the world share similar rituals,east and west, even though they are practiced in different parts of the continents. One example of a similar type of ritual used by all practitioners of the sinster way is the Hex (or Voodoo) Doll.
In Hexing Doll Sorcery, an effigy made of straw,clay,cloth or flesh is fashioned to represent the victim. Hair, nails or any belongings of the victim are also attached to the Doll; a soul invocation (mantra) is recited to summon the intended victim's chi and energetically link it to the doll. Needles or pins are then stuck into the doll to inflict harm on the victim.This ritual is done the same way in almost every system I've come across it in, be it from the east,west noth or south.
The power of the Sinster way comes largely from the ability to summon and direct spirits, which
can exert tremendous power over an individual's Jing, Blood, Body Fluids, Qi and Shen.The Wu Zu may also elicit the help of spirits of the dead, elementals, nature spirits, as well as demonic entities. Through their assistance, a worker can use the natural energies of the Earth, working with the
celestial powers of planets and star constellations, performing divination, creating spirit guardians,
summoning and controlling spirit entities that inhabit the mountains, forests and lakes, as well
as speaking secret incantations to effect physical changes in their victims or clients.
More will be written on this,and other things of the Sinister way soon,when I have the time,but for know I leave you with these words of The Old Dust 12 Poems (Part 9) by By Li Bai (李白)
The living is a passing traveler;
The dead, a man come home.
One brief journey betwixt heaven and earth,
Then, alas! we are the same old dust of ten thousand ages.
The rabbit in the moon pounds the medicine in vain;
Fu-sang, the tree of immortality, has crumbled to kindling wood.
Man dies, his white bones are dumb without a word
When the green pines feel the coming of the spring.
Looking back, I sigh; looking before, I sigh again.
What is there to prize in the life's vaporous glory?
