The Wisdom of Nature
The ancient Taoists were aware of the necessity to align with nature and own our place in the web of life. All ancient indigenous cultures lived with this awareness according to their own cultural and environmental surroundings.
The 5 Element System of nutrition and lifestyle is a model of this awareness that gives people a map to live by. The Taoists were taught this model of life, death and transformation by observing nature and receiving her guidance. When we are in alignment with this energetic flow of the natural world we easefully become part of the universal creative energy that flows through all there is. When we are out of alignment we feel cut off, separated and alone resulting in illness on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
