The Tao is usually translated as "the way" or "the path," but it is better understood as a universal life force that flows around and through all things. The &&LI&&RTao Te Ching&&L/I&&R teaches us that happiness is found in becoming one with the Tao, which enables us to live in harmony, balance, and peace and to develop the virtues of humility, moderation, and compassion.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RTaoism emphasizes "non-dualistic" thinking and the interconnectedness of all life. The "dualistic thinker" looks at the world and sees differences, comparisons, and contrasts. The Taoist sage knows that all such judgments depend on the person making them, not on the reality of what is being judged. Unlike theistic (God-centered) religions, Taoism does not involve prayer to a deity. Instead, Taoists meditate on the wisdom in the &&LI&&RTao Te Ching&&L/I&&R, seeking to unravel the paradoxes and understand the complexities that lie within its simple language.&&LBR&&R&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RYi-Ping Ong&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy from Columbia University and a second B.A. in Philosophy and Theology from Oxford University. She is currently completing her Ph.D. in Philosophy at Harvard.&&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
