As a girl, I loved tracing patterns with my hands. I did this often in church, going over and over the symbol on our red Lutheran hymnal. Turns out that tracing can bring us peace, harmony, healing, and forgiveness. The technique is called “Tao Source Calligraphy.”
Here’s one figure that you can trace. Give it a try right now, and as you do, think of someone you need to forgive or a sadness you’d like to overcome.
The Greatest Love was written by Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha, a world-renowned healer, humanitarian, spiritual master, and 11 time New York Times bestselling author (along with two other contributors). I knew little about ancient Chinese wisdom until the publishers sent me this neat little book to review.
While the book discusses chanting as well as tracing, I was most struck by the tracing. Here’s a link on The Greatest Love website that shows the official way to do the tracing (toward the bottom of the page).
Here’s a description of The Greatest Love sent to me by the publisher:
Feel the greatest love. Experience the greatest love. Embody the greatest love.
The greatest love is love that truly lasts and has no conditions. It is the love of a mother for her child. It is the love we read about in poems. It is the love we long to have.
We all have challenges that keep us from experiencing this greatest love. These challenges may present themselves in your health, relationships, or finances. With this book, learn how to unblock your life in 30 minutes a day with the power of unconditional love, the greatest love, which surpasses the human and enters the love of all creation.
Practice the simple, joyful exercises within this book, and receive powerful blessings from Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha, a world-renowned healer, humanitarian, spiritual master, and 11 time New York Times bestselling author, Master Maya Mackie, who also embodies the purest love and compassion, as well as Master Francisco Quintero.
The power of greatest love can melt all blockages and harmonize all separation and all that is not love. Carry this treasure with you to apply its wisdom anywhere, anytime, to enrich and bless your health, relationships, finances, intelligence, and every aspect of life.
