Daoism has two strains Daoism the philosophy and Daoism the religion The two are very different Daoism the philosophy centers around the concept of living in the moment Enjoying what one has now and not worrying about the future or living in the past It also involves looking to nature to show how life really works A Daoist believes that nature is the guide to find the Way A philosophical Daoist looks to nature to find his way and live in the moment The important thing to remember about the philosophical Daoist is that after he or she has experienced some Daoistic thought or is ready to head back into the world he or she can take off and do so Such an example is of the emperor He might go to the Summer Palace to take a respite and then head back to the Forbidden City in the same day to become Confucian again Its kind of a peel onpeel off deal Daoism the religion is a bit more complicated but not much They believe in the same things that the philosophists do but they take it one step further A lot of it has to do with the concept of balance Religionist Daoists believe that Heaven and Earth have a balance with each other and that men and women have a balance and that cats and dogs have a balance with each other and so on Find the balance and you have found the Way This Way may be a bit ambiguous and this explanation may not help but well give it a shot The Way is something individual to each human being Religionists believe it is found through balance and nature No one can tell you if you have found it or not and no one knows if anyone else ever has because if you are talking about it then you dont really know So its a catch
