A Personal Tao

Science is fact

Religion is faith

Magic is perception

Know these boundaries to discover what lies beyond.


As I sit here, I am also revising my book’s text. Strangely It keeps getting simpler and shorter.

Then I had this realization: I could write the whole book in a single word:


And that’s it.

Feels strange I spent 40 years to write a book of a single word.


So I am opening up the field for comments in general about A Personal Tao.

The site will focus on the following topics:

  1. Teach Taoism with modern language.
  2. Help others explore spirit.
  3. Be a world-class resource to help people grow through a midlife crisis. (This goal was added in mid-2006)
  4. Help the world change to be a kinder place. (This goal was added in late 2007)
  5. Help others have balanced relationships. (This goal was added in 2008)
  6. Create a community called Awakening Dragon (This goal was added in 2009)
  7. Help others be whole in their life (health), spirit and soul. (This goal was added in 2010)

All of these goals are interconnected, and it shows a simple truth: we must evolve over time to be complete.

Back in the 1990s, I had a vision; the vision was simple: resolving the fundamental problems of the world is all about helping people live kindly. The only problem is the profit-based economic system of the modern world is unkind. I sat down to realize; you can’t go to school to learn to be kind, and you couldn’t earn a living only being kind in the modern world. I know this for a fact: because for 15 years, I worked dozens of angles being kind within the system. At that moment, I knew I had to create a whole new path on my own. Twenty years later, I am here doing exactly what I set off to do, live in kindness. I am here to encourage you to find your answers, in kindness, to live better. A Personal Tao has 20 years of experience built into it to help you find answers for your path ahead.

Thanks for the gift Haiku



Just thought I’d leave a haiku on here, which I came up with that explains the Tao:

Harmonized opposites.
Ever chaning, indefinable.
All and none, the Tao.

I like Haiku as it involves expressing feelings about something as simply as possible. That, after all, is what Taoism is. Simple everyday things that make life amazing.

Hey Seamus

Glad to see you meander over here 🙂 I am always around if you want to chat

Hi Chris, Loving the Tao site and thanks for commenting on Rebel Zen, I replied there.

You want to know the essence of Tao (or maybe of being a human in the Tao)? It’s those catchpa things we have to type in when we comment. They briefly exist and crave that their existence be explained back to them, then they are gone.

You left a comment on my blog Sympathy for the Moon. I had a quick look at your site. Your view on taoism is very personal.

Two years ago I thought of making a web site on taoism. After six months of making notes I realised how arrogant such a notion was. How can I say more than what has already been said about taoism which is already too much!?

It’s better to just live it.


Thought provoking and passionate, Casey dives into as a man experiencing his own mid-life transition to bring us this work of wisdom, stories, poetry and art. The Personal Tao has something for everyone, at any point in their life. Once you pick up this book, read it as a student, and your life will change. Thank you Casey for such wisdom. May all men and women have the courage as Casey did to embrace this challenging and transitional time of life and be so giving. On as side note, I have mixed emotions about the recent news and changes you… Read more »

The sum of mankinds truth: is to be a man.

For good and for bad.

If you read any of the Taoist Blogs you would find we are all against Bush actually.

To make a difference is to be yourself, and work to help people with a smile, with peace of heart with your help.

It will never be easy nor complete, but we are alive and that means to try.

I think water just remains wet for the entire journey 🙂
