Taoism

Originated in china over 2000 years ago and still has influenced the people of china.

It promotes the spread of peace, harmony, and union with nature.

both beliefs don't worship one single deity, but instead allows its followers to worship any deity or deities allowing both beliefs to mix with faiths.

The big difference between the beliefs is that Confucianism is seen in the political world, and households. While Taoism focuses on more or less coming to peace with yourself, others, and nature.
