I'm just an ordinary person studying Tao/Taoism and Tai Chi

with the aim to apply my learnings to our modern world.

You could compare Tao to a living organism. In both cases there is no leader/controller. It doesn't follow any rules. There are no Do's or Don'ts. It just seems to work utilising organic patterns.

The Watercourse Way is a fascinating book. It is written in a way that it caters for people with different levels of Taoism understanding. If you are someone who has just started then you will love this book which gives you heaps of information presented in a way that is easy to understand. But the book also has in-depth knowledge for the more advanced reader. I keep coming back to the book and discover/find information that I haven’t seen or understood before. I think this book will accompany me during my journey to learn & live taoism.
Book Overview:
"The Watercourse Way" is a collaborative work by Alan Watts and the artist Lee Chih-chang, published posthumously in 1975.
The main themes and concepts covered in the book include:
1. Taoist Philosophy: The book delves into the foundation Read More

I learned/understood the meaning of this by practicing Tai Chi over many years now. More you know about Tai Chi, the better you understand how little you know of the whole picture and how much deeper it goes. Once you recognize that, you do not consider yourself a master but others might consider you as a master.
Someone who didn’t come to this conclusion, will consider themself to be a master of all that they think they understand.
