There are several important things that we must remember when following the Dao, but if we forget them it does not matter anyway. The Dao flows free. There are no rules, no dogma that ‘must’ be followed. Being one with the Dao is an art, not a science, and like art, it lends itself to many interesting and different interpretations. Some may find meditation extremely useful, some may not use it at all. Some have a long range goal and others seek to make it day to day. It doesn’t matter as long as you are true to the Dao itself.
