  1. Cell phones

    Do you clean the earpiece? It's probably just the collected oil being rubbed off onto your earbud and then back into your skin. Oils from your hands and whatnot. Seems like a simple hygiene issue to me.
  2. Lao Tzu quotation

    I feel as though the teachings of Lao Tzu are meant to be interpreted individually. I love seeing how different people perceive different aspects of the teachings. This statement to me means that the one who knows only does so from their perspective of reality. The one who speaks about what "should be" has no idea because it's impossible for him to speak of reality from each individual point of view. Just my take on it at least. Great responses! Thanks a bunch, everyone!

    Are you smiling? Do you feel like you're where you're supposed to be?
  4. Lao Tzu quotation

    Do you feel this to be your own personal opinion of the quote?
  5. Lao Tzu quotation

    I was just curious on what some of our more experienced members felt about the quote, "Those who know do not speak, Those who speak do not know" Thanks a bunch!
  6. How Is Taoism/Buddhism a way of life?

    I feel as though you've said it in an excellent manner, Mr. Steve. How quickly we complicate things...
  7. Thanks a lot! I'm exploring the forums and it's amazing how much information is tucked in here.

  9. Hello everyone!

    I feel like I found this place at the right time. I've been doing a lot of reading and changing of perspective. I look at people and the universe at large with such a different point of view than I used to. I like the person I'm becoming and others tell me that I seem to have made a very positive change in my life. Thank you Lao Tzu and the I Ching.
  10. So glad you joined us, lots of great information, and nice people... Mel

  11. Hello everyone!

    Hi everyone! I'm fairly new (Or old?) in making an attempt at applying Daoist philosophy to my life. Feel free to introduce yourselves to me. I'm ready (Or am I?) to get to know you and what you're all about.
