About Baoism

The tree of life and council of the birds

All of the religious and philosophical prophets and messengers of the world are worth looking at and considering. Baoism is pan-syncretic. We encourage you to fast with Muslims, take mass with Christians, meditate with Buddhists, spin with dervishes, chat with Hindus, and many other spiritual practices that are tax-free. There is some truth to be found but it must be read to be recognized and there is plenty of ‘not truth’ surrounding it all. You will know the truth when you see it. You just have to see it first. That’s the hard part. 

We respect all the major religious figures you’ve heard of  Buddha, Jesus Christ (he with the hair), Mohammad (Peace be upon him), Krishna, Moses, Lao Tzu, Confucius, Mevlana Jalaadin Rumi, Satya Narayan Goenka, Paramahansa Yogananda, and even L. Ron Hubbard.  

Also we offer respect and consideration to some names you might not expect like Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Alan Watts, Ben Franklin, Abdullah Ocalan, Hypatia of Alexandria, Bob Marley, Alan Turing, Terry Pratchet, Rod Serling, Elbert Hubbard, Gene Roddenberry, Yogi Berra, Bob Dylan, Jaron Lanier, Karl Marx, Adam Smith, Bob Dobbs, Homer, The Dude, Nikola Tesla, Pythagoras, Epicurus, Nichiren, Robert A. Heinlein, Dogen, Guru Amar Das, Ram Das, Baha’ullah, Philip K. Dick, Kahlil Gibran, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, George Fox, Pak Subuh, Anthony Bourdain, Aleksander Bogdanov, James Parry, Joseph Smith, Isak Gerson, Bab, Mary Baker Eddy, George Gurjieff, Helena Blavatsky, Henri Bergson, Wovoka, Tsunabaro Makaguchi, Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner, Jerry Garcia, Marcus Garvey, Anton Lavay, Osho, Henry Rollins, Bobby Henderson, Li Hongzhi, and Alfred Jarry. We don’t say that all they said was holy, but there were ideas from all of them that seem to be a part of the greater design we strive to become a part of. Search them up….you won’t be sorry for going down that rabbit hole.
