The Wisdom Of The Tao
Updated: Sep 27
I cherish the wisdom of those who came before me which was passed down from generation to generation. In recent years, I have often thought about the importance of incorporating into our daily lives a belief system that respects all forms of life and strives for peaceful coexistence. My personal ideas come from my daily practice and the teachings of accomplished teachers in Tai Chi and classical Taoism. I understand that each person's path is different, and everyone has their own views on the philosophy of life.
For those students who are already familiar with the Tao Te Ching, have usually experienced in their regular routine understand that the practice of Tai Chi is a process of harmonizing and balancing the body, mind, emotion, and spirit with nature. In other words, in Tai Chi, the process of understanding takes constant practice to acquire. So, I sincerely hope that our students can find the time to practice.
Besides the Tai Chi movements we have learned, I’m hoping that our students will incorporate the wisdom of the Tao into all aspects of their lives. I hope that they will gain insight to help them better face the conflicts, difficulties and joy that life sends their way. Like water in a slow moving stream that encounters an immovable object, it seeks the path of least resistance.
