The writings of the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi (Chuang-Tzu) have been inspiring philosophers and spiritual seekers for more than two millennia. His purposeful ambiguity and playfulness allow for endless re-interpretations in new personal and historical contexts. His suggestion of a mysticism innocent of all metaphysics and religious belief, as well as his incisive critique of the inability of reason to guide us, make him especially relevant in today's post-modern world. This present work is the product of years of engagement with Zhuangzian philosophy and represents the evolution of yet another personal dao--a philosophy of life--inspired by this most playful of philosophers. As such, it offers itself as only a suggestive possibility; it hopes to inspire others who are so inclined to "evolve along their own daos." Since the text originally appeared as blog-posts, the format is designed to provide measured reflections on the philosophy of Zhuangzi that can be read in just a few minutes, while inspiring prolonged thoughtful meditation.
