For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Quote Myself

"Where Zen and Buddhism will say the truth, enlightenment, and so on can be reached through dedicated meditation and practice, a Tao master may sip some wine, fart, and go to sleep."

There I was innocently surfing the web, hoping to find some pictures of boobs on a Taoist website, and I happened across someone quoting me(!) - I googled the quote and found that 2 people have quoted it on separate occasions so I dug out the old quote that was hidden in a long waffley piece I wrote some time ago and have placed it here for the benefit of my ego. The piece ended with this:

"So look and learn but don't force anything, don't try to adopt things that just don't fit together with you. Don't get so tied to one shore that you miss the next beach. Don't get too comfy under one tree. Don't carry a pile of books around where there is loving living and dancing to be done."

Yes it was me that used your quote, i apologise, but it was so good, i could not help myself.

I think your site is actually excellent, which is difficult for someone who considers most of this spiritual mumbo-jumbo to be mostly alot of self-indulgent new age rot from well-meaning folk with a little too much time on their hands.

But yours has a more real quality about it, some genuine insights and wisdowm that appeal, tho perhaps its just a higher level of bullshit that baffling my litle brain at present.
