Nature and Daoism
How we practice through the seasons. Following nature is important. Following the natural surrounding environment is the first step to being in the Dao.
In Daoism nature means heaven, fate, destiny and purpose
Also, our environment and what we see around us. What we can use to keep us in balance. For example, it is best to eat following the season, wear clothes according to the weather.
In the introduction to the Dao de jing it is said that once the Dao is named it is no longer the Dao. Because of this the text is rich in metaphors to describe ideas. In Daoism it is also believed that if an idea works on a small level it will also work on a larger more universal level.
This is the belief that what you will learn in this course will benefit yourself, your family, your community and even the world around you.
