well this will probably sound trite, but I thought one day, stumbling is also part of the tao.

That's more or less what I do. I was born Catholic, follow mostly Buddhism by choice, I also read a bit of taoism which incidentally has the same 5 precepts of Buddhism and I also like to read about some of the nature religions like native American and celtic paganism.
I'm not a great believer in sectarianism.

Thanks for the heads up Shaunc

One of my teaches says he likes to draw his water from many wells.( I usually use that) what I like about the teachings is I don't have to learn lots of new words or memorise tons of writings, I like the simplicity of it all, and I am top at forgetting stuff, so I am half way there already, utilise my powers work on my weaknesses.
life is simple its us that makes it over complicated, I think.


never STOP loving xxxxxxxxxbxxxxxxxxx

Color The Modern Tao, Flowing While Going

I'm on the Taoist road unfortunately tho, all the traffic is going the other way.

I must stop drinking an practicing Taoism at same time.

I love the Tao but Confucius offers more music and I love British Ska, Afro-Beat, Third World etc.

The other thing that hangs me back with the Tao, is, that whole worshiping our ancestors thing.
Isn't just respecting our elders satisfactory?

I have roots in Taoism and Buddhism. I learned that my ancestral spirits/ deities do not want us worshiping them. They rather see us evolve on our journeys on Earth.

The Tao is not a road ... .....

The Tao simply IS ~

The Way of the Tao IS an UNDOING of all illusions UNTIL ..... all illussions have been burnt up and all that remains is TRUTH ~
