"The Tao Of Health, Sex and Longevity" (excerpt) by Daniel Reid

The Dance
Painting by Gay Watters


Taoists advocate living in complete harmony with the great patterns of nature, and they venerate womanhood precisely because women are by nature far closer to the primordial powers of the cosmos perspective then are men. There is no place for male chauvinism, practical or philosophical, in Taoist tradition. A man who clearly understands the nature of a woman’s sexual superiority has already taken the first step towards utilizing that superior power. All he needs to do now is to practice the proper skills. But a man who denies nature and defies Tao will wilt and perish long before his time, no matter how chauvinistically he preens and prances.

Taoists advocate living
(that is, being connected) in complete harmony with the great patterns of nature (as opposed to our modern day disconnect with the wonderment of creation and ultimately our capacity to listen and be intuitively fed), and they venerate (regard with the greatest respect/admiration, lionize, revere) womanhood precisely because women are by nature far closer to the primordial powers of the cosmos (spontaneity, intuitive intelligence, creative inspiration and maybe most cherished - truthfulness) perspective and then are men (Here is the crux of cosmic truth.  From her feminine intuitive capacities, to a limitless potentiality to mother, care, nurture, love and even orgasm countless times, she is the ultimate giver, illuminator and sustainer of human life) There is no place for male chauvinism (because of millenniums of control over woman - it is inconceivable to most men that power could be designed any other way but for them - "a man's world!"), practical or philosophical, in Taoist tradition. A man who clearly understands the nature of a woman’s sexual superiority (this is pure liberation for any man!) has already taken the first step towards utilizing that superior power (it is by him adoring and revering her unfathomable yin/femininity that she responds to his pure heart and love, thus she wholly loves and opens her “sacred waters of life” to him.  It is here he finds completeness). All he needs to do now is to practice the proper skills (to learn to see himself as a vessel created to carry her on a blissful journey into perfect love, fulfillment, renewal and delight). But a man who denies nature and defies Tao (he is blinded to seeing the feminine (Yin) as the life giving force to all men) will wilt and perish long before his time, no matter how chauvinistically he preens and prances (by denying this great truth he becomes a "bragger" (though acutely insecure) and an expounder of half truths to feed his ego and edify himself, thus disrespecting the very gift (woman) he is so blessed to have in in life).
