What is Tao?
Let’s get to a fast start: here are two definitions for Tao.
- Way, path, a style of living and even the flow of the universe.
- Each unknown element that we face in life.
Taoism as a practice teaches a person ways of growing stronger against the unknown.
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.
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.
The starting point in understanding Tao is accepting yourself.

What is A Personal Tao?
Taoism is more than a philosophy or religion. A Personal Tao is defined by how you flow with your essence. Essence is about how you live fully to your style and not let outside stories limit you.
These teachings will reinforce your faith and steps towards living to your inner nature rather than a premade shape society tries to impress upon your form. 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. Julie, Mina and I have helped thousands of people already, and we will be around if you need some guidance overcoming challenges in your own life.
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.
The Tao’s definition always slips around words because how we see life is also 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.
