Yes, a Zen-like simplicity with a Taoist sensibility is very appealing to me on many levels, but only as a point of observation. Like I said, I avoid all belief systems and ideologies like the plague. But I also feel it's all right to talk to angels and deites of choice for a variety of reasons. Makes things more interesting if nothing else.
IMHO it's much better to allow the "HeartMind" to generate a living field of awareness that transcends the need for explanation. I think life should always be measured by those moments of joy and bliss instead of the programed fear matrix within which our suppressed society must function.
That's one of the main reason's I left the cultural illusion back in '97 to choose a path less traveled, so to speak, but MUCH more satisfying to my spirit. We have precious little time to grow out from this planetary garden and there appears to be far too much suffering already afoot for me to want to add to it. Island style life meets all the necessary criteria with catch phrases like: "If it's not fun, I won't do it." or "If I have to rush, I'm not going." and one of my personal favorites:
"Let go of the need to know."
