Prana, Chi, Orgone, Vril, are all similar words used to describe life force, or bio-magnetic energy. In Taoism the object of spiritual practice is to harmonize one's will with Nature, or become 'One with the Tao'. This involves meditative and moral practices in order to achieve 'effortless action', and to maximize physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual vitality.
Tao is a Chinese word signifying "path", "road", or "way". In the context of East Asian philosophy and religion, the Tao is not a "name" for a "thing" but the underlying natural order of the Universe. There is no exterior deity to be worshiped. Mantak Chia, an expert in Taoist philosophy, is one of the first to publicly disclose secret Taoist traditions and techniques with the West, which for many millennia were carefully guarded by emperors, high priests, pharaohs, and other elite.
