    I do not know how many Toaists are here.
    I need serious help.
    I have myself seriously out of balance.
    Both my tiger and dragon are white.
    My dragon is a water dragon. I know little of him.
    On the other hand I have fully embraced my white metal tiger.
    I seem to understand that if I can get in touch with my dragon it will turn brown.
    My problem is - how do I get in touch with my dragon?
    I have come into the awareness of ying and yang.
    I have the saddness of my chi managed in a way that I feel I am ready to take the steps to fully embrace my dragon.
    I just need the steps to the "ways" to him.
    Your input will be greatly appreciated!!!

    I fear that you should check your intent as any good Muslim would.

    What gave you this impression? What school of Taoism are you speaking about?

    It is actually chinese daoist.
    There is no DIR for daoisum.
    I was fortunate to get some help from a monk in china.
    He is telling me it is best to find someone I can meet in person here.
    I am not finding anyone - so I placed it here in hopes I could have something more than what is presented in meditation!

    Well, the first step would be to understand the difference between yin-yang and yin and yang. This distinction is profound.

    Hi elmarna,

    I don't how to get in touch with your dragon, but what's wrong brown color?

    In chinese metaphysics, white is the the color of metal, brown of earth.

    This dragon year forms a water structure in your chart. It's getting too cold.

    Flowers, vines, potted plants are good if you can have them in your house.

    Not right now on the flowers.
    I just was having a hard time when I saw my dragon who was white swimming in 1 of the many reflecting pools in a chinese garden and he was white!
    Having a white tiger it a surprise!
    I was just hopeful that if in all the reflecting and meditation he changes into something wise!
    Is this possible?
    I know the first step is getting in touch with him and not look at a distance!

    You're thinking too much, my friend. There are no steps, there are no ways. There is no tiger, there is no dragon. Just ride the wave, accept it all, it'll work itself out. It's all goooooooooooooooooood.
