A Fool's-Eye View

You will find no politics here. But you'll find some conservative taoist views here.

Wisdom: Thirteen.

The master has acquired wisdom. 
Being the master, he understands he can not share it. 

Paradox is the nature of reality, the essence of truth.
One may not seek out "the meaning of life" from anybody else.
One may, indeed, cross paths with someone who knows the "meaning".
But being told what it is, will inevitably  not understand it.

One may - at best - be guided by a master.
But one must make the journey, alone.

Wisdom can never be understood, as wisdom,
without wisdom being already present.

Taoism is a hands-off experience.


  1. The solution of the problem of life is seen in the vanishing of this problem.

    (Is not this the reason why men to whom after long doubting the sense of life became clear, could not then say wherein this sense consisted?)

    ~Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus 6.521

  2. When life is no longer seen as the problem,
    then life, itself, becomes its purpose.

Comments are welcome, while remembering:
Taoism is all about balance, thus:
Politics are not part of taoism.
