L. Ron Hubbard


His manuscript, the Tao Te Ching, became the basis of Taoism and held out yet another hope of higher states to which man could aspire.

Tao means simply “way” or “way to go.” It is the way the universe moves – a universe to which man is inextricably linked. When men are most natural, they move according to the laws of interdependence and interaction of all universal laws, and so maintain a perfect harmony and balance. According to the Tao, it is the way – there is no other.

Unfortunately, Taoism too did not provide a workable means to reach that perfect harmony. Nor was any attempt made to provide such a means. For intrinsic in the Way, was the conviction that its basic truths were beyond words and could only be experienced. Hence the principles remained in the realm of esoteric knowledge.
