Hi boricua_tao,


Breath deeply, relax. That is one of the common thing you hear about in Taoism, the importance of deep relaxed breathing.


Taoism is very different to Christianity. Taoism does not talk much about life after death heaven or hell and things like that. Taoism focuses on NOW. Taoism cares about how you feel, not what a God or a Priest tells you to feel.


I am sorry to hear that your sister is having problems. Her questions about sin and hell are difficult questions to answer. I can not answer them either, so do not feel stupid for not answering her. And nobody knows "what it Tao"


I thing shes trying to tell me something but she scare to say it to me because she dosent want to hurt me ore that she thinks i will hate her which it not true.


Tell your sister that no matter what you will always love her, always be there for her and always ready to help her.


I want to help more, but I do not know how. Perhaps these verses from the Hua Hu Ching will help you both.



I teach the Integral Way of uniting with the great and mysterious Tao. My teachings are simple; if you try to make a religion or science of them, they will elude you. Profound yet plain, they contain the entire truth of the universe. Those who wish to know the whole truth take joy in doing the work and service that comes to them. Having completed it, they take joy in cleansing and feeding themselves. Having cared for others and for themselves, they then turn to the master for instruction. This simple path leads to peace, virtue, and abundance.



Men and women who wish to be aware of the whole truth should adopt the practices of the Integral Way. These time-honored disciplines calm the mind and bring one into harmony with all things. The first practice is the practice of undiscriminating virtue: take care of those who are deserving; also, and equally, take care of those who are not. When you extend your virtue in all directions without discriminating, your feet are firmly planted on the path that returns to the Tao.



Those who wish to embody the Tao should embrace all things. To embrace all things means first that one holds no anger or resistance toward any idea or thing, living or dead, formed or formless. Acceptance is the very essence of the Tao. To embrace all things means also that one rids oneself of any concept of separation; male and female, self and other, life and death. Division is contrary to the nature of the Tao. Foregoing antagonism and separation, one enters in the harmonious oneness of all things.



Every departure from the Tao contaminates one's spirit. Anger is a departure, resistance a departure, self- absorption a departure. Over many lifetimes the burden of contaminations can become great. There is only one way to cleanse oneself of these contaminations, and that is to practice virtue. What is meant by this? To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation one's time, abilities, and possessions in service, whenever and wherever needed, without prejudice concerning the identity of those in need. If your willingness to give blessings is limited, so also is your ability to receive them. This is the subtle operation of the Tao.

Hey, this post is in the tech support section of the basement so won't get the kind of traffic and responses down here. I'd suggest cutting and pasting it and start a new post in the main discussion area.


Just like there are many different versions of Christianities, there are many different Taoisms both with and without hells. In general, Taoism is a bit more relaxed, forgiving, and accomodating and less controlling of the individual through moral codes. Having said that, there are many (most?) Taoists who believe in karma and rebirth.


Personally, I consider myself both a Taoist and a Christian so that's an angle too.


Your pal,
