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.

Chronicles of Tao

Such a cool book. Man if you haven't read it then it's time you did. Chronicles of Tao

Here is a great quote from what is, might I point out, not a purely spiritual book but more of an auto-biography-come-adventure novel.

'In truth, you are the self alone. You are the I stripped of qualities. You are nameless and formless. Since you cannot grasp that fact, you cling to forms, emotions, and thought. Ego arises to give you form. By contrast, the man of wisdom simply is. He does not cling to thought. He is still and knows that he is God.'

This basically sums up what I mean when I claim to be a Taoist.

Good evening, I am off to meditate on this...
