“Do not strive for things occurring to occur as you wish, but wish the things occurring as they occur, and you will flow well.”


March 2017, the two-year mark for this site that I have developed and maintained as a personal exercise in the support, practice and codification of its underlying concept of personal alignment with and acceptance of

“the way things are” through non-attachment and a pragmatic stoic approach to living.

It is a work in progress.


The on-going purpose--quite simply, to present a personally aggregated collection of media that supports the basic idea behind Taosophy, which is to “adapt, flow and evolve” through the inter-related concepts behind bhuddism, stoicism and Daoism. Not as an active pursuit with a necessary end, but as a constant, conscious, active awareness.

Creating and maintaining this web site has become a form of meditation in itself. Its current style--reposting articles, videos, blog posts, etc. from other sources are put forth, not as a confirmation of the concepts that Taosophy represents, but more importantly, as a guide for me, and hopefully the visitor to approach an acceptance and realization of the interdependence and impermanence inherent in the natural world and how to align with it. This naturally aligned “way” of being is acutely evidenced in this poem by the humanist American poet, essayist and journalist Walt Whitman:


The site has undergone and will continue to undergo adaptation and re-evaluation of its flow as it and I evolve.

So as that evolution progresses and establishes a greater online presence through contributions to other social sites like YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest, the site will continue to gather and share pre-existing relevant content that speaks to its philosophy, but it will also gradually expand to also present original content and establish a more consistent experience.

Thanks for visiting.

"I think I could turn and live with the animals, they are so placid and self contained; I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition; They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins; They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God; Not one is dissatisfied-not one is demented with the mania of owning things; Not one kneels to another, nor his kind that lived thousands of years ago; Not one is responsible or industrious over the whole earth." -Walt Whitman
