Follow my pattern and you are in for a surprise.  There is a psychological threat to this world and that is the new age movement.  I know you guys are wanting to fulfill your souls, but you have to be careful with this stuff.  Simply put, I do not cram Nodhalinn down someone's throat, but please bear with me.  My research ends now!

The religion of Taoism is also of Celtic origin.  Founded by Ariel Merlin (Jessica Frodo), it was designed to bring wizards into the mainstream society and clear the world of wizards.  Based upon the Chinese philosophy thereof, it makes sense that a religion will actually clean up this planet of wizards (or nerds).  Think about it.  The Chinese philosophy is not a religion.





If this wasn't so sad, it would almost be funny.

The 'religion' of Taoism? do you mean the heart? the root of?


"Tao is one of the most basic and comprehensive symbols in the Chinese language, the center of all philosophical and spiritual discourse. It may mean a path, a way, a principle, a method, a doctrine, a system of order; and it also may mean the matrix, structure, and reality of the universe itself.  Every art and science is called a Tao, or a way; but the source of everything, the fountain of all art and science, is called the Tao, or the Way. 


Taoism is based, first and foremost, on the experience of this universal Way the essential reality through which all derivative ways might be comprehended." - Thomas Cleary (The Essential Tao)


Maybe some sativa would put some clarity into your statement about whether the Tao is or isn't a religion?

I am really, really tempted to simply delete this thread, since it has nothing to do with anything...

They are many, but they aren't nice words.



I know, but sometimes there are no words to adequately express just how wrong someone is...


I notice the original post has been edited as well.
