What is a 'taoist'?

Simply a person concerned with feeling the nature of things.
A taoist is aware of their relationship with every living thing and the environment around us.
There is no 'religious' component to taoism in the Western sense of the word; it is not a belief system or faith of any sort.
It is about oneness with all things.
It is about wholeness.
Taoists try to appreciate, learn from and work with whatever happens in life, rather than impose order on a chaotic world.
Taoism doesn't exist really. It isn't a religion.
It's not an institution. It's not even an ism.
You don't have to believe in anything or have blind faith.
