The Way of the Game

What is the Way of the Game? The literal meaning of the Chinese word dao (or tao) is the way, the path. Taoism includes philosophies and practices that help one on the path to health, enlightenment, and longevity. The meaning of the English word “game” ranges across its usage as noun, verb or adjective. Thus, let us consider The Way of the Game as manifest when spontaneous play becomes responsible learning. This may be a gradual process toward a spiritual goal- or a sudden realization that you are already there! In either case, The Way of the Game is vital to learning no matter what the subject.
