Taoism theology emphasizes various themes found in the Daodejing and Zhuangzi, such as naturalness, vitality, peace, “non-action” (wu wei), emptiness (refinement), detachment, the strength of softness (or flexibility), receptiveness, spontaneity, the relativism of human ways of life, ways of speaking and guiding behavior.


all i can say its better than conbu stuff… i mean the other religion you posted… its the opposite of western style… they live normal but believe that where there is god, there is bad… ya know.. ying yang…

I practice a philosophical form of Taoism and so can only speak from that perspective. It is also practiced as a religion (primarily in the East) where it involves deities, various ritual and beliefs, but this is not the form I follow.
As a Taoist, I see an underlying order to the Universe. Possibly even a consciousness with direction and intent. A ‘flow’ as it were.
In Taoism discontent and difficulties arise when we act in opposition with the way of the Universe; to go against the flow. The solution is to start trusting our instinct and intuition. Because we are as much a part of the Universe as the plants around us. As the oceans, birds, stars or elephants. And just as birds know when to head North in Winter, we too have an inner compass.
The aim of Taoism (in a nutshell!) is to attune ourselves with this ’inner nature’ and thereby harmonise ourselves with the Universe itself. The result of being in harmony with the Universe (‘living to our hearts’, as someone once called it) is a happy life. A contentedness and acceptance of where we are and the wisdom only to act when actually necessary.
Hope that helps. Email if you want more. Or check my 360 (link from my profile).
