What Would Laozi Tweet?

My interest in tai chi push hands is only trumped by my interest in Daoism. I had an odd thought this morning. If Laozi had access to the various mediums we have today (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.) how would he use them? Perhaps the answers already lie within the pages of the DDJ.

Just a quick thought for the morning before I head out to practice.



  1. I think Laozi would be amused with our global network of communication. I think he would use these outlets to remind us that these mediums are a physical manifestation of the much more subtle yet powerful interconnection between humans and each other; as well as the connection between the individual and the Universe. If we can use the social media networks to reaffirm these deeper connections then we are doing something.

  2. But with 58 million tweets traversing the length and breadth of Twittersphere every day (which is 9,100 every second), how do you ensure that your marketing message does not get lost or is forgotten too soon?my blog
