In the thoughts of westerners often what cannot be seen does not exist. This type of thought pattern allows entire populations and cultures to be wiped from before their eyes like so much dust.

To be a Taoist is to walk a path of solitude, content in your aloneness and happy for companionship when it comes. It is to be the lotus flower which is surrounded by water and mud but is never touched by it. It is to be the silent lamp to a world of darkened souls, a whisper of comfort to those who despair. It is to be one with the universe, the eternal Tao, and every living thing.
