1. The Tao of Ultimate Reality- transcendent, tao is the order/structure/source of all things, not creator, not personal, always chaning, constantly in motion, known by intuition.
2. The Tao of Nature/Physical Universe- within this world of limits, individual/private life, personnal virtues-how you relate to nature, yin orientation, emphases on both philosophical and religous taoism.
3. The Tao of Human Life/Relationship (society)-
immanent-within this world of limits, yang orientation, social/public life, social virtues, emphasis of confucianism
