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?'

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

ok ok I know - you came here looking for wacky Chinese philosphy right? Not wacky western philosphy - but at the moment I am doing a lot of research into Alchemy and Hermetic western traditions (for my own purposes, which are for the moment a secret, suitably enough) so you might as well go along with the ride - huh?

There are a lot of similarities between the two alchemic/spiritual traditions, i.e. of the east and of the hermetic west, and without actually starting to believe in kooky new age shite about aliens and whatnot (probably more of a Jung archetype thing, to keep it real) - I do find these similarities fascinating.
