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?'

DAOIST CENTER: Outer History of China

DAOIST CENTER: Outer History of China: "Having usurped power, Liu Bang set about
murdering top officials and expelling foreign minorities with
the enthusiastic

assistance of Empress L�. 'When the rabbits have all
been destroyed, one no longer needs the dog; when the crows have

get rid of the archer; when enemy states have all been crushed,
illustrious ministers should be killed.' Together, they

exterminated all those within the court who could pose a threat
to their dominance."
