I had always thought about kayaking being a religion, because I've always felt more spiritual on the water, and out in nature...especially when soloing a run with no one around. Then I started reading up on Taoism, and found that everything I was thinking was in line with this ancient religion...so now I'm a Taoist. All the Taoist literature I've been reading constantly mentions: go with the flow, be like the river, "to be like water is the essential Tao", exist alongside nature, etc, etc. The only thing I have a problem with, is one book says to limit sex to once every 3 days, and to have it less in the winter than in the spriing, like animals mating in the wild. What else is there to do on cold winter nights when you're as sexy as my avatar pic?
