The Tao Within, Living/Dying

Finding the Tao Within

“Taoist tradition calls internal alchemy neidan. Neidanaims to reunify the individual with the Tao (also Dao) – the immaterial substance facilitating the existence of all things. This union is the centerpiece of Taoist philosophy and religion. At their core, all beings and things are an aspect of the Tao. Self-completing means finding the Tao within and thereby aligning with the greater Tao.”

I entered the world
Barefoot I leave it.
My coming, my going –
Two simple happenings
That got entangled.
