Morgan Lafey is a fictional character. 




I was just fooling around with the name "Morgan LaFey" as the founder of modern Taoism.  Her real name is Serena Mew although she was nicknamed "Mulan" for her ability to speak and write Chinese.  I nicknamed her "Morgan LaFey" because she had the charm of a sorceress.  She was 13 years of age when she founded Taoism.


I apologize for my misunderstanding and I hope your post is not flagged.

If the Tao is One and all are part of the One, who is not part of the Tao and not worthy to be called a Taoist?

In order to be a Taoist, one has to give himself to his cause and the Tao.  You have to brush off your obsession with the Tao Te Ching (Laozi) and realize that not everyone is Taoist.  It may have 1.8 billion followers worldwide, but not the rest of the world.  Put it this way, even if the Tao is One and all are part One, we may not recognize it, so when you become a Taoist, you would see the Tao within and in all things.  Besides, the Tao is embodied in Gaia and we are Her creations due to the Tao made manifest.


Namaste.

Just an opinion>  Each person has their own form and way to meditate.  When you find what works for you -- that becomes your technique.  Call it what you will -- but it is your Way or Tao.  There is no one way that fits or works for all.  If it works for you -- use it -- do not let others tell you that it is right or wrong.  It works or it doesn't -- that is the only test. This decision, whether it works or not, must be made by you.  

With love,

There was something formless yet complete,
That existed before heaven and earth,
Without sound, without substance, 
Dependent on nothing, unchanging, 
All-pervading, unfailing,

One may think of it as the mother of all things under heaven,
It's true name we do not know;
Tao is the by-name we give It.

Tao Te Ching, 25. A. Waley's E.T. , The Way and it's Power (1934)

If you love what you are doing -- you will never consider it work.
The spark within will grow -- when you know yourself.
You will change -- by being true.
You are Tao -- and Tao is you.

With love,

Rev Dorris
