China
Taoists
do not
believe
in any kind of

God
actually, Taoists try to

reach
Tao
which means
the path
this term "cannot be defined" according to the Taoists. Those who follow it have to respect the natural way of things: no classifying.
Taoists
try to be like
water
They adapt
This is called the
Wu Wei
or "inaction", let things flow and be
Another
belief is
P'u
it is also known as the uncarved block and dictates that things and people are beautiful in their natural and simple way
A good way to
understand the
ideology of the
Taoism is by
analyzing this
drawing
this is called
"The vinegar tasters"
Beginning
of life
Taoists
believe that
yin and
yang
were created from wuji (nothing
)

and life emerged from these forces

"you can't save time
but you can use it wisely"
A fly can't bird
but a bird can fly
A fish can't whistle
and neither can I
I have certain limitations and I know what they are
Why does a chiken?
I don't know why
theres no need toanswer one question when that answer will
lead to another question
