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.
O: Oneness enlightened
S: Saving money for the poor
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.
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
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.
Are you enlightened,
Probably not very
i.e. you see yourself the oneness?
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
If you don't feel you are a taoist, your words are not right
Forgive me 11, but that sounds snooty
I would love to meet, to talk with a taoist like that from net.
Well 11, good luck there
Meantime can I be of assistance in any form
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
I knew a lot of relly bright people from Taos.
I met some enlightened toast (but I still ate it).
I have no idea what an apodictical existential pantheist is but Im sure I coulda gotten laid a lot more if I went around talking like that in my callow years.
There's no way a real Taoist would be looking for validation on the web.
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.
I have no idea what an apodictical existential pantheist is….
In some 17 years you're only the third to so admit
…..but Im sure I coulda gotten laid a lot more if I went around talking like that in my callow years.
It's more subconscious or subliminal. Few if any kids accede to such dualistic proclivity
express to me youe enlightened nature then.
Have you ever met a real enlightened taoist?
NO but Ive met a very holy roller
did you mean to reply to me cuz i didnt say that
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
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.
