Hi, Folks

Hello, folks!

 

My name is Paul. I currently live in Ohio.

 

As my screen name suggests, I am interested in Taoist philosophy as well as Quakerism, though I would not consider myself as either. I have also recently become acquainted with the religious ideas of Leo Tolstoy, which resonate with me a bit (though he could be a bit bombastic at times).

 

I am a die-hard Universalist, as well.

 

It is my sincerest wish that, as I become acquainted with all of you, I am not too much of a pest. It is great to find a place where it seems it's okay to actually discuss Christianity in a manner that doesn't neccesarily have to fit with all the dogmas.

 

That's all for now.

 

Peace, Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Welcome to TCPC. And yes, it is definitely a place "it's okay to actually discuss Christianity in a manner that doesn't necessarily have to fit with all the dogmas." If you have been looking over the site you have probably already spotted the thread relating to the Tao under other wisdom traditions. Again welcome to your community.

 

Love in Christ,

Joseph

Thanks for the welcome!

 

Joseph, I have been looking over the site, and did come across the topic. I will try to catch up with the conversation. Thanks for the heads up!

And also new here, I hope I won't be a pest either. This place seems to be a sanctuary for people like us.

When I study Zen and Buddhism, I always seem to feel the need to balance it out with Taoism. Of course Buddhism was influenced by the ancient Indian mind, but I have always had an affinity for the ancient Chinese mind and culture much more.
