Don’t Believe Me
One thing worth noting about the Taoist believe system and practices is that it’s based on personal experience. Don’t believe me, listen to your personal experience.

There aren’t rules or prohibitions in Taoism and no teacher should be your boss. By practicing the fundamental techniques discussed here, one’s true nature slowly (or rapidly) emerges.
