Tao is the road up your spine.
Tao is the road of your life.
Tao is the road of the cosmos.
People are often confused about Tao because there are references to
it on so many different levels. After all, it permeates all existence.
Indeed it might be said that Tao is existence itself. It might seem odd
that we can talk about Tao on a level so mundane as physical exercise
and on a level as exalted as holiness itself. Those who follow Tao do
not think of divinity as something "up there." They think of it as
Tao can be tangible when it wants and intangible when it wants too.
One tangible aspect of Tao is the road in the very center of our spines.
That is the path of Tao in us. It is the spirit road connecting the
various power centers of our bodies.
On a philosophical level, Tao is the road through life. It is the
change from one stage to another, the dealing with circumstances, the
expression of your inner character against the background of nature and
society. On a metaphysical level, it is the evolution and movement of
the cosmos itself.
Now take these three levels -- the movement of energy up the spine,
the philosophical understanding of one's own path in life, and the very
progression of the universe -- and meld them all into one combined
concept. Then you will have a glimpse of the genius of Tao.
