The Personal Tao book examines Immortality. Now, let’s take a closer look at Taoist practices of longevity.
Taoist Lifestyle Habits For a Longer Life
Taoism holds together a lifestyle of practices to guide a person within a long healthy life. How long? Anecdotal stories talk about centuries. The more myth like aspects of Taoism tell stories of men living thousands of years. Science itself has only officially documented human life spans of 120 to 130 years. However, as pointed out in the immortality chapter: it’s actually meaningless to work towards physical immortality. Rather Taoists learn to extend their lives indefinitely. In other words, a Taoist lives day to day with no concern to how long they might live.
