In contrast to the heavenly beings of Taoism, man, who lives according to his nature, is forever bound to the sequences, the ups, and downs, of this nature. This path is characterized by the tolerance of the inevitable, it is the path that shows us our purpose: to be in harmony with ourselves.

The fundamental reality in the Daoist understanding is divided in “nothing” and “everything.” The existence of one gives life to the opposite. The existence of everything gives purpose to nothing.

(Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Qi Gong, Nei Gong and so on) The interaction of soft and… Read More
