I feel one can learn from all Taoist schools of thought. I hope to learn, exchange ideas and thoughts, as well as make new friends!

Are you still in Taoism today? What do you hope to learn from other schools? And what you mean by 'being into Taoism'?

When asked what it means being in Tao (ism) people don't reply. Why?

Everybody knows what rock'n'roll is, still it is difficult to figure out what being in r'n'r means to you. Perhaps you are r'n'r singer, producer or composer. Or simply a r'n'r fan. Much more difficult is then to understand what being in Tao means to you. To speak straight everybody is in Tao. But people imagine a Tao in connection with their own personal needs. If you will read this forum we'll see a mass of opinions about Tao which have nothing to do with Tao itself. So I think you should explain what being in Tao means to you in order to make things clear.
