Daoist Philosophy; What we can gather


Daoist Philosophy


Google


A Daoist Philosophy by Peter Myers


Taoism and Modernity by Henry C K Liu


Daoist philiosphy according to Myers has to do with the natural physics that run the universe. Daoists believe in the yen and yang; opposite forces or polar opposites that make the world go around. Daoism is an interesting construct because it beleives in going along with Mother Nature and being cooperative with people and life in order to participate fully with the flow of life.


It is very ancient and yes, it does contain parts of Confuciousism and the I Ching.


For those of you who have not experimented with sticks and the famous I Ching book; I reccomend it... it stimulates the intelelct, but more imporatantly the interpertation of the lines that are revealed in the pattern left by the sticks can be enlightening in its' depth, its' history adn its' down- to-earth format.


What do you make of it?

I love the yen and yang symbol myself...it reminds me to keep my balance and to aspire for inner peace.
