Daoism seems to be something I've been looking for. It's early days. Spirituality has been important to me for many years ive learned to understand there is no right path that everyone should follow. For me life seems like a school that we all learn from in an individual way. Daoism seems to be a philosophy about the way life is. Which can be difficult painful wonderful and beautiful. And everything inbetween.
I like how it thinks about life and nature. My mum would quote the saying nature red of tooth and claw. She didn't like nature programs she said it was just feeding, fighting, and fornacating. Nature and the dark side of nature like all that done to survive. I think is predominately feared in society. Those things like eating, decay, death, growing old, we don't face up to in a society where we have pretty much divorced from nature. And perhaps our own authentic nature. whereby all the seeemingly negative aspects are part of. It's as though we have santized out of life we live those bits we don't like. Stamp on them and fear them.
I like the yin yang symbol because it symbolizes the fragment of good in the dark. And humility in greatness. Often so many mistakes and difficulties have been made to achieve anything.
