Start here. 

Thanks for visiting this blog. My name is Jason Smith and I have sometimes been known as Buckshot George in the music business, because my real name is boring and forgettable.


This blog is a personal spiritual growth diary I launched on January 1st, 2017. Not exactly an original idea, but I am following along with the Wayne Dyer book “Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life” and “365 Tao: Daily Meditations” by Deng Meng-Dao.

Although this blog is intended for personal use, I welcome friends and others who stumble on this site to enjoy or work along with me.

When I started this blog, I knew almost nothing about Taoism. My plan is to post a short written entry every day of 2017 with a casually recorded audio Journal entry reflecting on the material and ideas.

Beginning on January 1st, I will work through the book “365 Tao: Daily Meditations” and explore the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu. I’ve already established a fairly regular meditation habit through the regular study and practice of Buddhism for the last two years, but I will also incorporate Qigong in 2017.
