Example text

The Individual Taoist is known for emphasizing the individual instead of society. According to Taoist philosophy, there is a uniqueness to each individual, and a person who abides by Tao is in harmony with his/her own self. Many Taoists also extend this to saying that just as the Tao has its Te (power / characteristics / virtue / excellence), so does an individual have his/her own unique Te. ” In the case of deliberate effort, Taoist Taoism 33 philosophy says that the Tao is already there, so why should you go looking or “striving,” and thus neglect the inexhaustible Tao that can get everything done.

It existed before the earliest time—yet you cannot call it old. We cling to our own point of view as though everything depended on it—yet our opinions have no permanence. Like fall and winter, they gradually pass away. The greatest person is nobody. When the perfect person employs his mind, it is a mirror. It conducts nothing and assumes nothing; it responds [to what is before it], but does Taoism 47 not retain it. Thus he [the perfect person] is able to deal successfully with all things, and injure none.

If you appreciate and engage in this, it will produce splendid fruit. Whatever you do and wherever you are, you can experience stableness, calm, and focus by having awareness on your breathing. [A method of meditation:] Develop a meditation that is like water. In this process, you experience that thoughts and conceptions will flow away… This water meditation will bring you peace. [Paraphrased:] Don’t believe anything just because it is the public opinion or common rumor; don’t believe in anything just because you heard it; don’t believe in anything just because of the authoritiveness of your teachers and elders, don’t believe in anything just because of longtime traditions; don’t believe in anything just because of the use of strict logic or strict inferences; don’t believe in anything just because of arguments about methods; don’t believe in anything just because you like an opinion; and don’t believe in anything just because of your reverence for a teacher and the idea that he must be followed.
