Abstract

Taoist thinkers interpret existence as a continuous process. The source of changes is not an external force, but a tendency for transformation inherent in the Universe. In the world limited by space, time, and causation, in the world of distinctions and oppositions, Taoist practitioners achieve freedom of the mind and go beyond such a distinction. A new worldview without preferences towards any binary opposition is formed. Taoists obtain true knowledge of the world and develop complete awareness of infinity and diversity of life. This paper aims to analyze the key concepts of Taoism.

Keywords: Taoism, Tao, Qi, Wu Wei, Binary Oppositions, Non-Duality, Reality
