To be a Taoist means many things to many people. To be a practitioner of Contemporary Taoism simply means to have realised that we are all minute parts of an indescribably large Whole (the Tao), and to choose therefore to 'Flow Like Water' and live in a spontaneous, natural manner. This blog is about: Personal Growth / Spiritual Development as guided by the principles of Eastern Philosophy, particularly modern philosophical Taoism; Developing constructive habits and achieving success with minimal effort; Meditation - Taoist, Zen or otherwise. See 'What In Lao Tzu's Name is a Contemporary Taoist?'

Practiced Wing Chun; Sil Lim Tao form and footwork, punching, kicking, blocking combos. Practiced in garden, hot, flies testing my concentration. Dog-poo dodging skills becoming great, but I think it is time to do the shovel-round. Sergie next door popped his head over, interested. He is a brown belt in karate. When I am even half as good at Kung Fu as he is at karate, we can spar, which will be good for both of our skills.

Body has minor problems. No point regretting the past, but sometimes I wish dearly that I had discovered good health and longevity practices when I was eighteen instead of the rock n' roll lifestyle I so unwisely pursued for many years.

Oh well. Never too late to better yourself.
