Sometimes I see Taoism as four bites of a cookie. Really. Well, to me anyway.
First, know God is in your heart and your mind. Spend your life seeking to do and be good.
Second, seek answers in the world, not in yourself. Discover the diversity and wholeness of the world and then you will discover the good in your mind and heart.
Third, seek to learn, understand and accept reality and people, and, "Judge not lest ye be judged."
Fourth, explore the layers in parables in the "Tao Te Ching" to discover God within you.
So, a cookie is more than a cookie. It's all in how you see the bites.
