I am researching Daoism, also spelled Taoism, is a philosophical and spiritual tradition that has its roots in ancient China. Daoism emphasizes several key principles and concepts: 1. The Dao (Tao) : The central concept of Daoism is the "Dao" or "Tao," which can be translated as the "Way" or "Path." The Dao is the fundamental, unnameable, and ineffable principle that is the source of everything. It is the natural order of the universe and the way things naturally flow. Daoists seek to align themselves with the Dao and live in harmony with it. 2. Wu Wei : Wu Wei, often translated as "non-action" or "effortless action," is a central Daoist principle. It does not mean complete inactivity but rather refers to acting in accordance with the Dao, without unnecessary effort or resistance. It is about going with the flow and not forcing things. 3. Balance and Harmony : Daoism emphasizes the importance of balance and harmony in all aspects of life. This includes balancing opposing forces (yin and yang), balancing physical and spiritual aspects, and seeking harmony with nature and the universe. 4. Nature and Simplicity : Daoists often look to nature as a source of wisdom and inspiration. They value simplicity and naturalness and believe that living in accordance with nature leads to greater well-being. 5. Yin and Yang : Daoism incorporates the concept of yin and yang, representing the dualistic nature of the universe. Yin is associated with qualities like darkness, passivity, and receptivity, while yang is associated with qualities like light, activity, and assertiveness. Balance between these opposing forces is crucial for health and harmony. 6. Immortality and Longevity : Some Daoist traditions include practices and beliefs related to immortality and longevity. These practices often involve meditation, breathing exercises, and herbal remedies aimed at extending life or achieving spiritual immortality. 7. Inner Alchemy (Neidan) : Daoism includes the practice of inner alchemy, where individuals seek to transform and refine their inner energies (qi or chi) to attain spiritual enlightenment and longevity. 8. Simplicity of Living : Daoists advocate a simple and modest lifestyle, free from excess and materialism. This simplicity is believed to bring inner peace and contentment. 9. Mysticism and Meditation : Daoist practices often include meditation and mystical experiences aimed at gaining insight into the nature of reality and the Dao. 10. Anarchic and Anti-authoritarian Themes : Some Daoist texts contain themes of resistance to authority and a preference for decentralized, natural governance. The Dao De Jing, one of the most famous Daoist texts, contains passages that question the value of rigid social structures. Daoism is a diverse tradition with various branches and practices, and not all Daoists adhere to the same beliefs and principles. It has had a significant influence on Chinese culture, including traditional Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy.

What I like to do: sharing, reading, biking, hiking, kayaking, flying, rowing, adventure travel, sunset walks, cooking, gardening, meditating, sailing, yoga, workingout, deep philosophical discussions, laughing, being silly, communicating, affection, caring, you name a few. I like a wide variety of music, especially oldies and classical I spend some time in San Diego, after living there 15 years, and could spend more time in San Diego, but live in Mill Creek near Seattle. The best of both worlds, pacific northwest's natural beauty (at least in summer) and the sunshine of San Diego. I truly am an adventurous outdoor enthusiast, enjoying hiking to a highmountain lake for exercise and to enjoy the scenic beauty, best shared with a special life partner. I prefer a partner who can talk with me about anything, communication is essential to a longterm relationship, yet having fun is imperative to a happy life. I am affectionate and sensitive, but still a man, loyal, dependable, consistent, but adventurous. I am happy, realistically optomistic, humerous, fun loving, down to earth, yet can be sophisticated when necessary, but am always true, respectful and in awe of our universe. I have no political affiliation, but tend to error on the conservative with most issues, when I don't error on the liberal. I am serious about finding a life long relationship, but would welcome a friendship that is meant to potentially develop into a life long partnership. It takes a while to get to know some one to know if there is that compatibility, but we know immediately if there is potential. I don't like changing, and am not unduly picky. We all have many opportunities, but we must be true to our own hearts before we can be true to a partners. In a lifetime relationship, growth is inevitablely at least partially on a different path, and its the want to continue with a long term mutually gowing union that may be the most essential quality for two to make it happen. And having fun with this whole journey can make it all enjoyable. Health is one key to happiness, and Happiness to me is not a feeling, not having material possessions, or control, but happiness is a way of life, an attitude, a way of living that is connected to everything and everyone, the universe, animal life, plant life, the soil, rocks, air, space, water, time and the progression of civilization. Happiness is a oneness with all life, life force, energy, matter, and things we cannot imagine And living this association while being aware of it and enjoying being a part of it, no matter how major or insignificant. That is what is most important: to be, to know; and if influential, hopefully beneficial. As was so eloquently expressed by ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY, in David LaFlamme's song PLACE OF DREAMS "...And we are one with the earth and air, climbing the ascending stair, to the temple of the dawn. In a moment of time, after dreaming sublime, refreshed before the climb. We smile, and are gone. "

我的童年在山城重庆度过,那里有美好的田野和长江嘉陵江的味道。大学在中国一所著名学府学习物理,毕业后在北京和海口工作了五年。在1993年我来到美国学习物理和计算机,后来在美国各种大小公司做计算机工作直到现在。年轻时曾经有过一次失败的婚姻,没有小孩。离婚后一直单身直到现在,不知不觉已经20年了。离婚后我对感情的要求变得越来越纯粹,我希望找到两情相悦,心甘情愿的爱情。我这个要求在许多朋友看来是比较高的,他们不能理解我对感情的坚持。因为我认为在感情中,只有倾心付出才会有发自内心的幸福,所以一定要找到那个自己非常欣赏,她也有足够的眼光能够欣赏我的那个人,心甘情愿的在一起,心门彻底打开,沟通顺畅,能够明了别人的感受,两个不同的人才能够没有障碍的融合和相爱。我对外适应性强,理解力强,行动力强,眼光长远,性格坚韧,豁达,乐观,同时细心,体贴,审美力强。外人看得到的优点:“学业极佳,学习和工作能力强”,但我真正的优点,需要有眼光的你来发现!还有,你也许想知道我的经济情况,关于这一点,我如果不工作,经济应该是中等偏上;我如果工作,在你的支持下,我肯定是美国的高薪人士,说不定某一天还可以变成所谓的成功人士,因为成功的潜质我相当具备。不过我真不care是否成功,我只希望有美满的爱情和家庭。
