The Book Of Changes


The law is in the grand design of all things.The number three is the number of divine completion and a glorious number it is.There is the law of God,the law of man and the law of nature.The laws of nature would cover the order you speak of here.

===========================================


Are you aware that everything that you've said in your answer is consistent with the understanding of Daoism and expressed in The Book Of Changes... with the one exception that philosophical Daoism doesn't *believe* in a God figure... and the number of completion is 9 rather than 3?

There is also an egalitarian role between men and women and the early Daoist society was more of a matrilineal one. How else can there be balance and harmony? In fact... the Chinese character for God is discussed in the following article...

... which will give you characters for both god and goddess that are more aligned with religious Daoism. If anything the female held special signficance in religious or folk Daoism as exemplified by The Dipper Mother, the Queen of the West and the Mysterious Female...

Some Christians are attempting to even fit Daoism into a Christian framework, but this...

... is nonsense! It's simply not true... and it's a shame that some Christians insist on doing this. It's disrespectful of other cultures and spiritual traditions.... that were in existence a very long time before Christianity ever came into being. This is also the very sort of thing that has happened with Native American spirituality... which also has its roots in a matrilineal structure. What is the insistence of holding on to a patriarchal hierarchy that is only causing imbalance and destruction? By design... that's the only thing it can do because it's based on a winners vs. losers philosophy... which is precisely what is the basis of war. The illusion, however, is that there are ever any winners in such as system because we are interdependent human beings who need to find a way to live together both in balance and harmony. We will die off as a species if we don't... and what will remain is the very same masculine and feminine principles... expressed as heaven and earth or as sun and moon... only us silly people who couldn't get it together in order to figure this out will be long gone!

Why can you guys not get this? What could be more simple?
