Taoism: A Philosophy, a Religion, and a Way of Life

Taoism seems to be the only philosophy and religion thatencourages the believers to live a prolonged, healthy, and happy life.
Officially, religious life is closely regulated. The country has five recognized religions: Buddhism, Islam, Taoism and Christianity, which in China is treated as two faiths, Catholicism and Protestantism. Each of the five has a central organization headquartered in Beijing and staffed with officials loyal to the Communist Party. All report to the State Administration for Religious Affairs, which in turn is under the central government’s State Council, or cabinet. This sort of religious control has a long history in China. For hundreds of years, emperors sought to define orthodox belief and appointed many senior religious leaders.

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. Its teaching in the Western world, began in the late 1970s, founded by martial arts expert and Taoist yoga teacher Paulie Zink. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

Wow. This is an amazingly inaccurate description of Taoism. “Tao” is not the “force that flows through all life.” Furthermore, Taoists really don’t even believe in “souls” nor do they believe in reincarnation.
In the most simple, modern terms, cultivation of the self and of the Tao can be understood as striving each day to be a better you, seeking balance and practicing moderation in all things. (This is similar to the Buddhist "middle way", but comes with the caveat that Taoists may sometimes seek extremes for various reasons, usually having to do with cultivating martial or magical power, nor do Taoists, in general, reject the pleasures of the flesh.)

RELIGION HAS LONG played a central role in Chinese life, but for much of the 20th century, reformers and revolutionaries saw it as a hindrance holding the country back and a key reason for China’s “century of humiliation.” Now, with three decades of prosperity under their belt — the first significant period of relative stability in more than a century — the Chinese are in the midst of a great awakening of religious belief. In cities, yuppies are turning to Christianity. Buddhism attracts the middle class, while Taoism has rebounded in small towns and the countryside. Islam is also on the rise, not only in troubled minority areas but also among tens of millions elsewhere in China.

During China’s decline in the 19th and 20th centuries, Taoism also weakened. Bombarded by foreign ideas, Chinese began to look askance at Taoism’s unstructured beliefs. Unlike other major world religions, it lacks a Ten Commandments, Nicene Creed or Shahada, the Muslim statement of faith. There is no narrative comparable to Buddhism’s story of a prince who discovered that desire is suffering and sets out an eightfold path to enlightenment. And while religions like Christianity acquired cachet for their association with lands that became rich, Taoism was pegged as a relic of China’s backward past.

Taoist Truths stated simply: When you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try and hold onto! The reason "you" suffer is because you believe there is a "you" and this "you" desires to hold onto impermanent things, hence this is unaccpetance of life as it is NOW which is a let go of all past thoughts (memory) and all future thinking (projection) within the mind. Who is this one before thoughts, the observer of them? Return to this one and be free of the illusions you let run your life. There is not "you" and then life, there is life, there is not "you" with a spirit, there is spirit, there is not "anyone" as a body living life, there is life expressing itself through everybody, hence to be no-thing IS TO BE...........ALL!
