Hello, from Montreal Canada

Post by BrianD108 » Mon Sep 10, 2012 1:52 am

Hello,
I'm new to this forum. I have come to Taoism by way of Zen practice and find that the Tao resonates deeply within me. Much more than Zen for some reason. Don't get me wrong though, plenty of good stuff within Zen as well. I hope to deepen my understanding of Tao, and make some new friends along the way.( No pun intended ;) )

Brian

Welcome! Zen practice is as good as Tao is. Also zen took birth from Ch'an which is a combination of Buddhism and Taoism in China.

this is a most interesting observation.. it has been my experience that Zen is useful in it's measured pace..like the dog said "I always have time to play..it's always Now Now Now" :lol: ..to embrace each moment as precious one does not have time to anticipate future or past moments..without losing the one you have at present..so it is with the Tao in that all you need to maintain yourself in each moment is available if you focus on it..n'est pas?

Interesting analogy, William. It works. I've never looked at it like that.
