Welcome to A Personal Tao

A Personal Tao is a modern guide to teach graceful living practices, how to explore your potential, and understanding Taoism. You will be surprised that Taoism covers midlife crisis, spiritual exploration, social justice, meditation, healthy living practices, and so much more. Our goal as a family is to work together in making life in the modern world a better experience using these teachings.

What is the Tao?

Let’s get to a fast start: here are two definitions for Tao.

  1.  Way, path, a style of living, and even the flow of the universe.
  2.  Each unknown element that we face in life.

Taoism, as a practice, teaches a person ways of growing stronger against the unknown.

The starting point in understanding Tao is accepting yourself.


Embracing Tao is all about learning to extend your awareness with a wandering style of approach. So wander to explore the hundreds of teaching articles here on our site. Discover that Taoism is never about the destination, rather it’s about experiencing life within a journey. This is the baseline for our School of Awakening Dragon.

Exploring Taoism is also learning to understand your own heart and see all the connections of life. As you explore a Personal Tao, use the materials here to help you understand these connections around you. I take time to rest within our online Zen Garden when needing a moment of peace.

Taoism & Midlife Crisis

Taoism is more than a philosophy or religion; it’s a lifestyle dedicated to being the best person you can be in life. A Personal Tao is defined by how you flow with your essence. Essence is about how you live fully in your style. Don’t let outside crisis or stories limit you.

Taoism has many teachings specifically targeted to help people in midlife crisis improve their life and find purpose.

Explore our 15 years of articles to help men and women in midlife crisis answer questions or any other challenge in your life. Learn to be strong and flexible. Please be an active participant in your own life, to experience life with a richness of actions and to Always Dream Even When Awake. If you need help, we are here to help.

Personal Teachings

The dragon is the symbol of our spirit. Look for hidden teachings in unexpected places.

Heaven and Hell are not after life
Heaven and Hell are within life.
It’s in movement we create joy.
It’s in despair we cement walls.
Leap beyond judgment.
Reveal, peel apart & feel poetry
Moving around every barrier
Overflowing to your own nature.
Never regret action
as the past lies
in fleeting memories.

To live, eternally, now
within the way… in Tao…
of exploring possibility.
The secret to life is…
Simply being true to yourself
Within a smile
Looking upon each day,
with the new wonder it deserves.

Awakening Dragon Taoism

Explore the Tao

Taoism is a path
of self-discovery.
Explore depths of the spirit.

The Tao’s definition always slips around words because of how we see life, and our stories are constantly shifting. This means the Tao is both indefinable and yet by living our life fully; we can then discover our own Personal Tao.

The Tao is about 10,000 things and is truly about being yourself.

The practice of Taoism
is to flow with life.

Surfing Tao

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
