I think Dao is like nature

Dao is the true path that will be unfolded before you after you have set aside all the things that you have experienced, well at least that's how I understood it hehe

I understand "DAO" as when you've finally accepted your destiny... Seems CP had a heavy focus on fate and destiny...

I personally would have preferred to be able to change my destiny or make my own way (own dao) in life... :?

Well by watching the show, "Dao" seems to be "The way" like.. your destiny or fate, I dont know much other than that but from the way they talk about it, that seems about right.

It is just simply nature and very much like the Yin and Yang of Tai Ji... And only a person who puts down everything can master the true path of Dao... Which most of us are not able to do it... :(

Haha... That is the question... Isn't it? There is no clear defination of 'Dao'... We just think that it is something that is part of nature... Just like Tai Ji... There is a certain patern existing in everything... In Tai Ji, it is the circulation of Yin and Yang... I not sure about Dao... :(

"Dao" cannot be explained. Those who understand "dao" cannot explain it as those who do not understand dao cannot comprehend the explanation. It is like explaining what water is to someone who has not seen, heard or touched it.

When The sword immortal (Yin Ruo Zhuo) finally understands dao you see parts of his life (or ego) fall as drops into the lake, he is but a drop in a stream of consciousness.


It's the ultimate realisation, the meaning of being or infact of not being!

:?: now i'm confused :P

YEah. Guess you are right. Dao cannot be explained. When you see your life part by part, you might realised that many things couldn't be solved with knowledge. I think the only way is to put it aside and understand it slowly with your heart. The sword Saint in the show mentioned that " 既然懂得拿起,为何不懂得放下". It means that if you know how to start doing something, why not put it aside when it is completed or failed. I feel that he was right. This is the only way we could reduce our burden. If not our burden will increase slowly as we proceed with our life.
