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.

Inspiring article

How to Build a High-Traffic Web Site (or Blog)

Although this is an article about web site optimisation (kind of) I found Steve Pavlina's attitude very inspiring, especially seeing as he (claims) to make a good living out his blog.

Point 10 is the most important, as the author himself says, and it must be true for any service or business - the number one priority should be to help others somehow. That is what I aim to do, help others by doing what comes naturally. In fact I already do it, and so do you. If you look carefully at your life I am sure you will find that this is true.

I was particularly inspired by his point that he does not write for computers (i.e. web crawlers) but for humans, and that he does not run a blog purely to be a portal by just linking to lots of stuff. I have been guilty of the latter sometimes, mostly from laziness. I am now inspired to re-commit to CONTENT. Thank you to those who read this blog on a regular basis, you can look forward to a revitalised Contemporary Taoist in the immediate future.

Flow Like Water...
