What is Taoism ?

Taoism refer to many fundamental truths that have been observed in Nature. Some of these fundamental beliefs that influence the teachings:

  • The Tao - The Path - understanding of the true nature of mind and reality and by application the way of living in harmony with the changes in Nature.
  • Wu wei - The Natural order, harmony with which allows for effortless doing.
  • P'u - openess
  • Ch'i - fundamental energy that forms the Yin and Yang

The search for the Tao and application of Taoist practices leads to exercises both physical and mental.

The exercises, diet and meditation teach an Internal alchemy that are are designed bring balance and peace that in turn is said to extend life, theoretically even to the point of physical immortality.

In the pursuit of knowledge, every day something new is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, something is subtracting every day
.. until effortless doing is achieved.
- Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
