                                                        wants no worshp,
                                         yet all sentient beings become silent
                                           before the beauty and mystery of
                                                                 the Tao.

Fung Yu-Lan said that Westerners
are religious people who sometimes philosophize,
and the Chinese are philosophers
who are sometimes religious.
And the Taoist religion as i understand it
is much different from
the Taoist philosophy as i try to practice it.

But silence is not unlike worship,
Silence can be a form of worship
If i find something more "awesome" than something else
(or more awful than something else)
aren't i being a bit religious?
