Taoist texts can help deepen our understanding of early Chinese history by allowing us to understand their culture and lifestyle during that period. Many people think that Taoism is going with the flow and not going against the flow. Taoist priests teach a set of rules and mortality. I learned that the early history of Taoism was different and it was a theocracy based on celestial matters. The celestial matter was supposed to make a new political establishment called the great peace that every person would be treated right.
