Rubbing Things Together
I still call myself a Christian even though I no longer believe what Christians are supposed to believe. I consider myself a Christian because Jesus was my first way into an awareness of my own spiritual nature. And because he spent his life on one long spiritual journey.
Taoism has taught me that life is what it is. After my parents died when I was in my 20s, I couldn't go to them anymore for answers to the questions I kept having about this spiritual life they and the church had given me. So I had to go looking for answers on my own.
Somehow, that has led to my current project -- seeing what happens when I rub "Love thy neighbor" and Taoism together.
Not that they were ever separate to begin with.
