Transcript of Taoist Principles from The Tao of Pooh

The Uncarved Block or
P'u The Uncarved Block is one of the basic principles of Taoist religion. In direct translation of Chinese to English, it means things in their natural state. As a result of achieving the state of P'u, you can look at things with a natural and unbiased mind and life will be happy and sweet. A perfect example of P'u would be Patrick from Spongebob. He is always happy and accepts life as happy. Patrick can find the good in everything. Taoist Principles The Tiddley-Pom
Principle The Tiddley-Pom Principle is like the Snowball
Effect. One small snowball is made and pushed and it is like it's rolling down a hill, picking up more and more snow and getting bigger and bigger. An example of the Tiddley-Pom Principle is war. Often, it will start with one small, unimportant thing and just get bigger and bigger, and will eventually come back to bite you. It is called the vicious circle for a reason. T'ai Hsu In direct translation of Chinese to English, it means The Great Nothing The Great Nothing is the emptiness of the mind. When you achieve the T'ai Hsu, you won't overthink things and you will have no stress. "Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing."
-Lao Tsu Bisy Backson Always working on nothing. Bisy Backsons are alway working and never stopping to enjoy life. They always try to save time, but they just end up wasting it. For them, there is no minimum effort, only the best. Wui-Wei The Inner Self Saving Time Versus Spending Time Wasting time on saving time
Can't enjoy life as good
Microwave food
Too much going on to just stop Not wasting time
Can enjoy life
Time to actually cook
Able to stop to appreciate life Wu-Wei means without doing, causing, or making. Going with the flow or working with the natural order of things is basically what it means. The Principle of Minimum Effort is Wu-Wei. Tz'u Your inner self is the person (or persons) that you are inside. It is sort of like another personality but one that isn't seen. Your Inner Self: An Example How you look like you feel How you actually feel The Tao concept of Tz'u means caring and compassion lead to courage and bravery. The idea of Tz'u is that when you are nice to others, you would become more courageous. Spongebob is the perfect example of Tz'u. He is always kind to everyone and therefore he has courage.
