I heard its some sort of paganism, belief in nature and not in a god or some other medium of that sort. Not sure though, have to check it out.

I don't know that much of it. However most eastern things are more internal rather than external. I think the last thread Blackwisdom made in this forum was a good contrasting thread about east and west.

The Way is through all the writings so you do need to know at least the fundamentals to understand.

I read the Tao Te Ching. It's good shit. One verse I really liked was talking how the sage is not sick because he's sick of sickness. It's basicly saying knowing what the problem is is a positive step in the right direction of dealing with a problem.

I'm not like, studied up on that shit though.

there are a few threads here on it - i'll see what i can find and continue from where we left off

Tao is common sense and balance
its viewing everything from all sides and flowing your flow and using what you know to get where you need to get
its putting things where they belong and keeping order

Ayo sunny i was wondering if you could explain it more....and maybe share your insight. Also i was wonder if anyone has heard of I-Kuan Tao or of its principles?

I-Kuan Tao is the belief in the Tao, the eternal source. It embodies the truths inherited from the teachings of Lao Tzu, Confucius, and the Buddha which are the same truths taught by some other spiritual and philosophical traditions. From Lao Tzu comes the reliance on the harmony of people and nature. From Confucius comes the appreciation of good deeds and behaviors. And from Buddha comes the general concern for the masses and delivering all from suffering.

The modern movement of I-Kuan Tao was established by Lu Zhong Yi, the 17th Patriarch of the later stage of the East Tao Orthodoxy. In 1930, his disciples Zhang Guang Bi and Sun Hui Ming became the 18th Patriarchs to carry on the Tao Orthodoxy.

In order to preach the great Tao and reveal enlightenment to all humanity, the 18th Patriarchs established and taught the Principles of the Tao as follows:
