Also a good resource for other Chinese philosophies.

The OP link looks like some new age philosophy that someone cooked up after reading a couple of books or online articles. Taoism is a big, complex religious tradition which is pretty hard to separate from Chinese culture. Some people try to pass it off as simply a philosophy that you can learn from reading Laozi, but that's not the case.

One good site to learn about Taoism would be Dr. Louis Komjathy's site, http://www.daoistcenter.org/.

A couple books that I found very interesting and informative are Taoism: Growth of a Religion by Isabelle Robinet and Taoist Master Chuang by Michael Saso.
The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within you, and is found in your soul. Dive into yourself, and in your soul you will discover the rungs by which you are to ascend. - St. Isaac of Syria

Whenever Lao Tzu lived he was not just a solitary guru, but a member of some beneficent brotherhood. This collection of his teachings is an extension of the Tao De Ching, titled the Wen-Tzu.
