Introduction: Why is Tao called the Way?
Tao can be translated as “the way.” Taoists view the Tao as the connection that makes all life and movement in nature possible. The Tao is composed of two opposite energies called yin and yang.
Everything in existence has the characteristics of both the yin and the yang. The yin is cold, dark, and mysterious; it is associated with the earth and is female. The yang is warm, bright and positive; it is associated with the heavens and is male. The interaction of yin and the yang are revealed in changes.
What is "The Middle Path?"
It is the middle path that brings freedom. This is a universal truth discovered by all those who awaken. “It is as if while traveling through a great forest, one should come upon an ancient path, an ancient road traversed by people of former days . . . Even so have I, monks, seen an ancient path, an ancient road traversed by the rightly enlightened ones of former times,” said the Buddha.
The more we delve into the middle way the more deeply we come to rest between the play of opposites.
