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.

Tao of Rock!

Go here to check out my original music downloads page, fresh with a little sneak preview of the cd we are soon to finish. The first song for free download is "Embrace" (rough demo) and it has very Taoism/Meditation inspired lyrics - in fact I would call it Enlightenment Rock! ;) he he he !


It's all too wonderful - this love that comes cascading down,
Just like a waterfall, it flows like liquid all around.
I'm bathing in the light, I'm swimming in the sweet sunshine.
I know I'll be alright - everything is turning out just fine.

But is was not all that long ago that it all seemed too hard.
The cold winds of life - man! They did blow,
A chill right through my heart.

But now I'm standing on my feet, not shaking on my knees.
I'm 'bad' and 'phat' and 'it's all sweet'!
I'm doin' as I please!
Not shaking on my godforsaken knees!
I'm not weepin' for some Jesus as he bleeds!
Oh no - I'm 'bad' and I'm 'phat'
And I'm doin' as I please....

Shake hands with your best friend,
And say goodnight.
Shake hands with your new friend,
And embrace......embrace......
