it feels funny to write about myself on a Daoist forum, even though I don't think I can say I'm a Daoist myself or will ever be.



Many part of the Daoist legacies and traditions are of deep interest to me, something intellectualy something more intimately, more in relation with my body and how I feel.

Many others don't appeal to me at all, even though I fully understand and respect that for other persons they're of vital importance.



Let's say my main focus now is letting go of all the harmful, consuming tensions and memories I hold and create inside me (physically or psychologically), so that I become able to really listen. The whole time.

I don't believe in some grand awakening, absolute indifference to the world and becoming immortal, nor do I expect my life to be above emotions.



I think my piano teacher can some kind of Daoist without knowing it (which would make her even more of a Daoist ?), and I find it quite funny. Could piano be my path ?



The idea of forgetting who you are in contemplation always pleased me, it feels poetic.



I hope I won't bother you here.

Hi Praeludium,


Oh, I doubt you will bother anyone here.  You might even make someone's life more pleasant.  Yes, piano could be your path.


You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.


May you enjoy your time here.
