The Man Made

Some may find the idea of Tao an impractical idea; something visionary and unrealistic. There are those that fail to grasp the very idea of yin and yang. There are those that wish for endless sunshine; those that scorn the very rain that helps give life and maintain balance. There are those that seek answers in man made creations; people who scoff at ancient ideas of gods, yet toe the line in accordance with their own and adhere to texts that are the very definition of abstraction. It is better to seek answers in the natural world of Tao, to learn from what appears before our eyes in reality, not in the antiquated words of dusty books that are clouded by ideas written to promote an agenda. Man often sees himself apart from the universe, somehow unbound by the natural law of things. It is man that creates this illusion and suffers because of it. No other creature does this.
