Taoism is all about going with the flow of life and enjoying the journey. It is about contentment [loving things as they are] and freedom to be as you are. No changes required.

Taoism is based on the concept of wei wu wei, which means action without action. Just as we breathe without actively trying or as the planets orbit around the sun on their own, wei wu wei is about being so true to yourself that you live in a natural state and stop forcing things. You do what you love (in harmony with nature), take things [and people] as they are, and keep moving.

Lao-tzu is seen as the father of Taoism [and author of the timeless Tao Te Ching]. If one were to ask Lao-tzu, “Why are you happy?” he would say, “Rather than asking why I am happy, inquire why you are not.” Happiness is the natural state. Similarly, you do not go to the doctor to understand why you are healthy…that is how you should be.

One of the most famous lines of the Tao Te Ching is, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Taoism encourages us to live our life like this…one step at at time…enjoying each step.
