Taoist ideas lived in an average American life

Hello all and welcome to my American Taoist blog.

My name is Matt, I started this blog because I have identified myself as a Taoist for a few years now and am constantly studying Taoism and trying to live my life in a way that will let me get right with Tao. After rereading one of the translations of the Tao Te Ching I have it occurred to me that, aside from the anecdotes of Chuang-tzu’s writings and the verses of the Tao Te Ching, there aren’t a lot of easily accessible ways to learn about the practice of Taoism from an every day point of view.

I suppose that’s where this blog comes in, basically I am your average 20 something American, I work the 9-5 job (although I do not plan to do so the rest of my life), I have the usual group of friends, a wonderful girlfriend, and the same day to day situations many others find themselves in. Because of this, I am constantly turning to Taoism to try to apply the teachings found there to my life and I find truth in them in the most unexpected ways. Taoist philosophy is actually very practical when applied to daily life, therefore I want to use this blog to explain the lessons life teaches me about Taoism and how it can be applied to help deal with some of life’s situations as well as helping me to get a better understanding of what I am learning.
