The TAO in Taotoe
The spirit of our brand is embraced in a very simple ancient Chinese philosophy. The word TAO means… ‘One’s Path’ or ‘One’s Way’ with nature and enjoying life.
Tao comes from a BCE (Before Common Era) 6th century ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu (Lal-Sue). Lao Tzu wrote his simple philosophy that consists of 81 short quotes and poems.
Tao is simply a philosophy about following one’s path and living a much less stressful life by connecting with nature and going with the flow, instead of struggling against it. Tao is about ‘being alive’, seeing the beauty in the sky, the clouds and experiencing the joy of connected relationships. It’s not being able to tell the singer from the song, the dancer from the dance.
Tao says we are natural beings in a natural world, so nature is not only a fundamental aspect of being alive; it’s also a place for the rejuvenation of your mind and soul. Tao is simply about being connected to nature and living a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.
