Legacy of Dao was formed to share the ancient wisdom of Daoism with the modern world. Practice of Daoism can lead to greater appreciation of the intricate interrelatedness of everything in life. Practitioners can become more attuned to the flow of the universal life force (qi ) in all the realms of their life and as a result live in greater harmony with their personal circumstances.
Within the body itself, practitioners learn to feel the universal life force and detect subtle changes that maintain balance and harmony. Before long, by practicing the ancient methods—only a few of which are yet publicly available—they can identify potential imbalances long before they become problems. They can also come to understand how different lifestyle choices, such as food and drink, exercise, breathing, and personal relationships influence balance and harmony.
At home and work, people can design living and work space and arrange furniture, plants, and familiar objects in such a way as to maximize peace and harmony. This will lead to health, prosperity, and a feeling of being at home in the world, a sense of moving along with the flow of Dao. Spreading from the individual and the family into the neighborhood and community, the inner peace and sense of connectedness generated by a conscious awareness and active practice of Dao become the source of great harmony in ever expanding waves of influence in one’s life. Relationships with others can become less conflicted and more joyous. Balance between work demands and family life can be better maintained.
Daoist wisdom helps to gain a deeper understanding of the way people interact and how social organizations influence the well-being of both individuals and the world at large. One realizes how ethical rules alleviate tensions and aid social integrity and how rituals, both large and small, create spaces and patterns that help the universal energies to flow in proper balance.
The world of Dao is a rich, colorful, multifaceted universe that can be felt and lived in each and every moment. Its proper understanding and application contributes significantly to health, long life, prosperity, and peace. A vast treasure trove of untapped wisdom awaits the seeker, helping everyone willing to heed and practice the great Way.
