Have you ever met a real enlightened taoist?

First, some lines of introduction: My name's Hieu Nguyen Ngoc, so you may call me my first name is "Hieu",male, having only BA of English, 40 years old, a Vietnamese, selftaught Taoism from 1992 to 2004, the year I reached enlightenment.
A taoist here, I mean, a real one, someone enlightened in Taoism. I describe that person (TAOIST as u see below) in the abbreviation:
T: Treating others like himself.
A: Anti-dualist
O: Oneness enlightened
I: Impermanent
S: Saving money for the poor
T: Truthful.
A real taoist is similar to a buddhist, of course, an enlightened one, not just a normal follower we can see many of them in a Buddhist temple. I would love to meet, to talk with a taoist like that from net.

@taoist11,
The apodictical existential pantheist, Hieu, on a purely analytical basis heartily subscribes to A, O and, T/2, assigning T/1 and S to the relativistic humanoid realm, yet uncertain about I, lacking a firm definition thereto

Tho not Taoist, nevertheless articulate and loquacious, full of unrequited and unsubstantiated opinion, willing to talk your arm off

@dalehileman,
Enlightenment first. Are you enlightened, i.e. you see yourself the oneness? If you don't feel you are a taoist, your words are not right.

Probably not very

As apodictical existential pantheist I do see the entire Megillah (Her) as a kind of unity although I'm not quite sure what I mean

Forgive me 11, but that sounds snooty

Well 11, good luck there

Meantime can I be of assistance in any form

@dalehileman,
Not sure Taoist but one realization of unity comes from maturity. For instance 11 a horny teenager sees woman as three parts: two breasts and a body. Only later in his life does he see her as a kind of unity

Can I be of any further assistance

There's no way a real Taoist would be looking for validation on the web.

@PUNKEY,
Correct. As a oneness, they would want to show they are THE ONE, I imagine, though I do like the idea of giving to the poor.

What about witches? I am one of those.

In some 17 years you're only the third to so admit

It's more subconscious or subliminal. Few if any kids accede to such dualistic proclivity

@taoist11,
The trick is not to look for enlightened taoists, bur anybody enlightened to the hep guide communicate and ponder with you, making up two distances is better then walking a line cuz one can learn greater for the greater cause.

I myself dont sat if i be enlightened or not; but it dawned on me years ago. From that point on, things were different; but i love taoists and all together in general. Hope you find what you need

@FOUND SOUL,
Have you ever read Son of a Witch? It's by Gregory Maguire, who wrote Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. I think you might enjoy both of them.
