8.20 Taoism

Taoism is a philosophy based on the teachings of Lao-Tsu and the ancient teachings of the I Ching.

Taoism is a spiritual and philosophical tradition which emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao, or Source / Pattern / Substance / Way of All. This includes harmonizing human behavior with Nature and its Source, and the “three treasures” of Compassion, Humility, and Frugality.

Other key concepts include naturalness, simplicity, flow, effortless action (we wei), detachment, and ensuring one does not exert their will or intention against the will or intention of the One.

Harmony with the Tao.
