Christian Taoism I
I like the idea of Christian Taoism. I'm not exactly sure what it means, but I like the idea of taking the best of what I found in my long life as a traditional Christian and mixing it with what I'm learning about Taoism.
Of course, the "best" of Christianity -- things like compassion and selflessness and hope -- are at the core of the world's other great religions, too, but Christianity has been my path into these things, so that's why it's Christian Taoism for me. For somebody else, it could be Jewish Taoism or Islamic Taoism or Atheistic Taoism or maybe even Taoist Taoism.
The Tao bears each of us along a different path. We each have our own spiritual journey to travel.
