Welcome to Barefoot Doctor's Nuts of Taoism

Nut 1

The Tao means the Way, as in the way destiny unfolds. It's entirely mysterious in origin and nature, and no matter how intelligently, assiduously or thoroughly we probe, whether through the scientific approach such as the search for the 'God Particle', through intellectual philosophical reasoning and theorizing, or through direct experience brought about by various sorts of meditative states, the mechanics of existence at the profoundest level remain an enigma.

Nut 2

The ancient Taoist mystics avoided intellectualizing or abstracting cosmological principles.

They also avoided sanctifying cosmological principles, or enshrining them dogmatically as a set of beliefs to be subscribed to.

Hence they didn't anthropomorphize the Tao.

Nut 3

Of all the nuts of Taoism, aside from your writer, this nut is the king nut - this is the gist of the 'method' - the supreme-boss technique of mastering life - remaining situated in your back - all explained within...

Nut 4

The ancient Taoist sages recognized there's an optimum level of energy to deploy to achieve success with any action, however seemingly big or small, significant or insignificant the action may be. They described it as using four ounces (approximately 110 grams).

Nut 5

Human life consists in an ongoing complex series of transactions with others. While it's important not to follow the herd, it's equally important to stand in good relation to others, for without others none of us would survive, not just in the practical, material sense, but psycho-emotionally too.

Nut 6

In this manifest universe all phenomena, from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest galaxy, are in perpetual motion. As a result perpetual change is inevitable.

Nut 7

Other than change, the only other certainty is death. And as with change, inordinate amounts of energy are wasted avoiding and resisting death as if it's the worst thing that could ever happen.

Nut 8

Maintaining perspective is important. Everything that happens no matter how extreme or intense is part of the cosmic order and is hence ordinary.

Nut 9

Counter intuitive to the contemporary achievement-oriented approach, rather than try and achieve things, intend things to be as you wish, then open yourself to receive them – receive rather than achieve.

Nut 10

No one is able to experience reality objectively. Our very presence alters the way reality behaves. We can only experience reality subjectively. Implicit in this is that there can be no absolute truth. Everything is relative, including truth.

Nut 11

We mistakenly assume the way to fulfillment, safety, security, happiness and success lies in getting the world (which means others) to serve us by bringing us what we want.

Nut 12

The word 'kindness' derives from 'kin', meaning family.

Ultimately, despite all the differences we perceive and distinctions we draw, everyone on the planet is part of one big human family.
