Hi im alex: volya means freedom

Tell us about your interest in Taoism. How did you find the Tao and what it means to you? Are you a practitioner? What you hope to attain through your practice?

Hi im alex: volya means freedom

Post by volya »

I love the tao i also love buddhim but i feel that taoism is the most practical and correct of all the world spiritual views

My favorite verse of the tao te ching is

Failing the great integity we resort to virtue
Failing virtue we resort to moralizing
Failing moralizing we resort to dogma
the most superficial form or faith and loyalty
and the nourisment of confusion

I also love idea of complete spontenaiety to me this implys freedom in the utmost sense
I love freedom

Thats why I picked the name volya it's russian for freedom

Im a 24 year old male
from New york in dallas texas
Love music, truth, philosophy, psychology, people(most of the time) and freedom
