I've practiced it (some of it) before. I mostly follow Hinduism, but I take from any religion what I believe to be valuable. I believe that every religion understands the same truths, even though they often go about utilizing those understandings in different ways, for different purposes.

I agree.
Taoism feels natural to me and difficult at the same time. It's seems simple but it's not so easy to truly practice it. From my experience.
So just 5 people?

I quit calling myself taoist when the name started hurting. But I empathize with it deeply

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?

Reading Taoistic texts has been my guide light for the past few years. It's the only philosophy that resonates with my experience and it helps me grow.
I have moved closer to nature to keep my Tao flowing freely.
