I'm pretty sure i'm posting in the correct section, so please re-direct me if i'm mistaken.
Anyway, I had heard of Taoism by word of mouth from a friend who engaged in an intervention with his father in China who introduced him to Taoism.
I had been wandering around, searching for a religion or anything spiritualy guided at all to help guide me through life and live with more understanding and tranquility. When he described Taosim, it sounded like exactly what I was searching for.
However, all I have is his word and his interpretation of it. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some good reading material suitiable for someone just learning about Taoism if it's possible.
Now when I say "good begginer material," I guess i'll provide a little background because good material can mean anything.
I'm a sixteen year old with fair to advanced reading skills and not a ton of meaningful experiences in life as of yet. I have no one around me in which I could ask to help explain vague ideas of taoism(if there are any, I don't know ) seeing as I live in a family of chirstians and go to a school which is predominately christian. So the reading has to be an easy read in which I can decifer myself.
I did see "The Tao Of Pooh" once on the amazon.com, however I require something on a deeper level :3
If anyone could help, i'd be incredibly greatful.
