Authority



The name Cossack is derived from the Turkic kazak (free man), meaning anyone who could not find his appropriate place in society and went into the steppes, where he acknowledged no authority. My great-grandfather was a Cossack at the time of the Russian Revolution. We should acknowledge no authority other than the Tao for the Tao is the master authority. We have to live within the confines of society and follow rules to prevent anarchy, but no man is an authority over us. We should not worry about rules or laws. We should seek to follow a natural life, one that is in total harmony with the Tao.
