Tea Time Taoism in harmony with The Third Testament ☯

Taoism (/ˈdɪzəm//ˈt-/) or Daoism(/ˈd-/), is a religious or philosophical tradition of Chinese origin which emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao (ChinesepinyinDào; literally: “the Way”, also romanized as Dao). The Tao is a fundamental idea in most Chinese philosophical schools; in Taoism, however, it denotes the principle that is the source, pattern and substance of everything that exists.[3][4] Taoism differs from Confucianism by not emphasizing rigid rituals and social order, but is similar in the sense that it is a teaching about the various disciplines for achieving “perfection” by becoming one with the unplanned rhythms of the universe called “the way” or “dao”.[3][5]Taoist ethics vary depending on the particular school, but in general tend to emphasize wu wei (action without intention), “naturalness”, simplicity, spontaneity, and the Three Treasures: 慈 “compassion”, 儉 “frugality”, and 不敢為天下先 “humility”.
