It’s very odd. I’ve never before in my life, been THIS interested in a religion, that I’d look up books, and read as much as i can about it, but Taoism, just does it for me. It’s the ONLY religion/belief system, that i could even remotely use and/or put into my everyday life. Maybe because it’s more real to me, then “oh yeah, theres a God up there somewhere who wont send me to heavan if i cuss or if i have sex before i marry.” Not that i have a problem with Christianity, Catholicism, Judiasm, Islam, or any other kind of religion. But Taoism seems more me. That whole philosophical, Yin-Yang, Uncarved block, harmonize with Nature and oneself thing. I think i could really live by this stuff, and i’ve never really felt this way about a belief system before. It’s even hard for me to explain!
Do you want to be really happy? You can begin by being appreciative of who you are and what you’ve got. Do you want to be really miserable? You can begin by being discontented.
